My August trip included nine days in Amsterdam, where we decided to spend our vacations. The delight of finding an actual (to be precise two!) quilting shop, was just a dream for me.
First stop at “Den Haan & Wagenmakers” a beautiful quilt shop where you can find traditional dutch fabrics, useful books and quilting accessories. I bought my wonderful copy of “Farmer’s Wife Sampler Quilt” book, that I was so eager to buy, and also a lot of specialized rulers for quilting.
Second stop at Birdblocks, a dream fabric shop, that provided me with 2 of my favorite quilting books, “Material Obsession” and “Quilting From little things”.

Welcome to Zarkadia Quilting Co.!
Quilts are the most intimate and personal of objects. They connect us with each other to the primal ground of the bed-the place we spend half our lives; where we are born, sleep, have sex, and die; the place where we replenish ourselves and dream our dreams; the place of nurture and healing, where we retreat in sickness and frailty; and the place where we receive the comfort and care of those who love us.
