More Shop Hopping
Silly me, wrote the directions to the shop which ended in "turn right onto Maplewood Drive", but somehow I failed to write down the ACTUAL ADDRESS!!! I went a mile down the road and saw a row of businesses and shops but not too much up ahead so I pulled in and called the shop. When I told them in was in a parking lot and facing the elementary school they said, "stay in the parking lot, turn around and we'll wave you in." I wish I had gotten a picture of these two wonderful women out in the middle of the parking lot frantically waving and throwing their arms about ~ with the biggest smiles ever!
"Quilters Choice" is a beautiful shop! Everything is "just so" and spotless. Lots and lots of eye candy as you can see from the pictures.
While I was there, Nan (I think is her name) gave a little impromptu class on locker hooking which I haven't tried yet, but looks pretty neat. Nan was one of the gals who greeted me outside. Super super nice!
I didn't buy much in the way of fabrics there, especially after all the loot I picked up at The JaM Patch, but I did get one piece that will coordinate with one of the pieces I already had.
I would definitely visit this shop again if I was in the area. They also do a lot of children's clothing classes including smocking, which my niece is really great at. Dani, you would have loved looking around in here!
Two more shops to report on tomorrow before my big night out on Tuesday!!!
