Historic Flat Rock Village


For those traveling quilters please put Flat Rock, NC on your destination. Great shopping, food at Hubba Hubba barbecue, Dean's Deli and The Flat Rock Village Bakery. Love those scones!  



This is our little answer to Rainbow Row right here in western NC.



The Book Exchange now carries all four of my remaining books in their store. Hours are 10 to 4 Monday through Saturday. Please contact me ahead of time and if I am in town I will gladly come greet you and "talk quilts". I live right around the corner. You might recognize this Old Post Office, circa 1844-45, from my book New Ideas for Lap Quilting, page 103. Since our quilt shops have closed in town this is an opportunity to at least buy books. I really like it that the Ladies Aid Society proceeds are used solely for the less fortunate in our community. Charity starts at home. 



Our Village Hall of Flat Rock. Another restored village in town, where our government resides. Do visit this building as the quilt below is a feature in one of the conference rooms. 



The History of Flat Rock in Needlework, dedicated in 1999  Every residence tells a story. A booklet in the room where the quilt hangs claims the story and the person executing the needlework. Bravo, ladies!

My husband and I make an annual trip to the NC mountains in November each year. I will ask him if Flat Rock Village is on our way!

Wonderful town and buildings. I do have relatives in the area, one of these days I have to take a trip down there.

Quaint housing are all lined up in the village. There's so much to see around the community.

The quaint housing in the area looks as calm as the community. Hopefully there are new homes for sale so buyers can as well enjoy staying there.
