The last time we visited Bob and Doris, we were in a TFC tractor – on the way home from delivering a chapel to Calgary, Alberta – so we did not drive to Bemidji to see Japheth’s new shop.
This time we were in our car, and made time to go to Bemidji. I lost count of how many times we saw the Mississippi River on this trip.
Lake Bemidji had open water close to the road, but there was still ice a short distance from the shore.
A Stitch In Time
Japheth was expecting us, because we asked him what was a good time for us to visit.
He has any color thread you may need.
Samples of his stitching.
He has a wide variety of sweepers he has for sale.
If you are a serious – or maybe not so serious seamstress – you probably know about Baby Lock sewing machines.
His two employees assist is sales and repairs.
When we went to see his storage area, he pointed out this door that was once part of a doctor/dentist office in Bemidji – they think in the early 1900s.
There were many more samples of stitching and quilting on walls and tables.
If you purchase a machine from him, you can come for classes and learn how it works.
These last two pieces certainly look like something from northern Minnesota.
This cute display was just around the corner from A Stitch In Time.
Thanks, Japheth, for taking time to show us your shop.
