Okay, you know whenever we travel it is very important to scope out the local quilt shops. Well last weekend I was with my dear hubby and son in North Carolina. They were busy doing competitive guy stuff, so that meant that us gals had to do a search and rescue of fabric, somewhere!!!
My traveling companions and I headed to the warehouse of fabric -
Wow, I have been wanting to get to Mary Jo's for years. And here we are!!
It was a pretty huge store with lots of fabric. They not only carry quilting fabric, notions and supplies, but half the store has upholstery fabric, and bridal too. Their prices are SO good! I found several pieces of Civil War fabric for around $5.00 a yard. So it was a great way to stock up on backing material.
Our next stop was this VERY cute shop in Charlotte called QBee Quilts.
If you are ever in the Charlotte area you must stop by and visit this shop. These gals were SO helpful and SO friendly. Just good ole Southern Hospitality. We spent 2 hours in their shop. And after we made our contribution to help the economy, they told us to pick out a couple of fat quarters to take home with us. Is that nice or what :-)
And on Saturday we ended up in a totally awesome Quilt shop called Linderalla's.
Isn't that just the cutest name?? I just love the names of Quilt shops. So imaginative. Anyway, that is where I found the Glace fabric that got me rolling for the Schnibbles (and of course got me in trouble cause I didn't get everything I needed there :-( It was a very fun quilt shop experience. We almost did our own Shop Hop.
Do you ever have an opportunity to check out the LQS when you travel?? I think that is part of the fun of exploring new areas!
