Alford Inn

Last March, a few of my quilt buddies and I attended the Tyler Quilt Show. Cindy Alford, the owner of Alford Inn, was at there showcasing her new quilt retreat center and quilt shop. She was giving away a free night at Alford Inn. Well of course, we signed up! Guess what? WE WON! We were so excited. SEW, the past weekend, there were five us who drove to Van Alstyne, Texas, north of Dallas. The Inn is just wonderful and is located in a house that was built in 1884. The original house was approximately 2,300 square feet and the Alford's added an additional 3,000 feet. You CANNOT tell where the old stops and the new begins. The renovation was absolutely wonderful. There are two rooms that sleep 6, one that sleeps 4 and another with a queen size bed. There are beautiful quilts on all the walls. The Inn is decorated just beautifully. We sit out on the wrap-around porch and enjoyed a wonderful Texas evening. The quilt shop had great selections of fabrics that catered to almost any taste.

We had a wonderful time laughing, sewing, eating, and shopping in our Jammies. It is a great place. Alford Inn can accommodate a group of 12 or a small group of six. I highly recommend that you check it out. Be sure and tell Cindy that Kathy with the crazy Wacky Pac group sent you!
