Support Your Local Quilt shop Day!


Today is support your local quilt shop day.  I did just that.  This is me parking in a no parking spot just so I could support my local quilt shop.  And then I took a picture with my cell phone.  Too bad the sign that is on the door didn't show up.  It says the one with the most fabric when you die wins.  Gotta love that!  Then I toodled around inside chatting with the ladies about Singer Featherweights which happens to be on my wish list.  Then I toodled over to the solids and picked up a few things.  Kona Cherise and Coal.  I picked up a remnant of Kona Emerald and one of Navy too.  I toodled over the the Aurifil display and picked out some thread.  They have the BEST prices for Aurifil.  The BEST!  I noticed they had one of those cutting mat cleaner gizmos that I have heard work super well so I picked up one of those too.  Then I came home.  I love that the Bent Needle is right here in town.  I love that the ladies are just so darned nice.  So if you happen to be out in the valley, and you need a little quilt shop fix, check out the Bent Needle.  Worth the drive even if just for the Aurifil!

  7. You maybe shouldn't have voiced your dream of owning a featherweight... I have one (it does need a bit of work, to the bobbin case I think) but priced appropriately, send me a email if you are interested... I will give you more details then...

    I did not get out at all yesterday, so spent nothing at any of the local shops, maybe on the weekend, tho...
