The editorial offices for Fons & Porter's is in Winterset, Iowa along with a quilt shop. We get people from all over that stop in to visit the shop when they are traveling through the area. Sometimes they are in the area to see the covered bridges and other times they have stopped to see the birth place of John Wayne.
The other day we had an unusual customer trying to get into the store before it was time for it to open.
As you can see from the photo it was a rather furry and impatient customer. We're not quite sure what quilting project she was working on that she needed to get supplies for in such a hurry.
Even in a small town such as Winterset, it is quite unusual to see a raccoon running around the town square. She decided to take to the door knob when the animal control officer was trying to get her into a live trap.
I'm happy to report that she was captured in the live trap and taken out into the country and set free.
Happy quilting and come visit us!
