Craft a weekend getaway fit for a quilting queen in Hamilton County, IN.
Start with brunch at Rosie's Place on the historic Noblesville Square. Local favorites include fluffy, brown sugar oatmeal pancakes or farm style eggs Benedict. Be sure to grab one of Rosie's famous gooey butter cookies to go on your way out!
Next, find some inspiration at several antique, artisan and clothing boutiques around the square. Stop by Logan Village Mall, a sprawling gallery of antiques, home décor, jewelry and even a vintage candy. A Corner Cottage and Karisma are your shops for cute, quirky and quaint clothing and gifts.
Stop in at the Nickel Plate Arts campus to browse galleries of local art in two of Hamilton County's oldest restored homes. Exhibits rotate each month, so guests are guaranteed a new experience every time they visit. Check out the second floor to watch local artists at work in their studios!
Find your fibers, sewing machines, thread and more from Always in Stitches - recently featured in Quilt Sampler magazine. Weave in more shopping at Tabby Tree Weaver in Arcadia, Quilt Expressions in Fishers and Quilt Quarters in Carmel.
Grab a late lunch or early dinner from local dining hotspots like Matteo's Ristorante, Asian Grill, Alexander's on the Square or Ginger's Café (right next to Always in Stitches). For a meal with a view, head a few minutes north of Noblesville to Key West-inspired Lazy Frogg restaurant on Morse Reservoir in Cicero.
Get the gals together to start stitching at Maple Lane Inn in Arcadia, a bed-and-breakfast that was once a scrapbooking getaway venue. Maple Lane Inn sleeps 10 and has plenty of room for everyone to craft their next masterpiece!
A quilting getaway is "sew" much closer than you think!
