Then I joined a guild that held their monthly meeting in of all places, a fabric shop. Uh oh. So once a month I am able to touch, select, and purchase lovely fabrics and notions. The shop even gives us a 15% discount on regular-priced merchandise. They also have a large sale area.
Wandering Stitches Quilting Studio the other day. It's only 3 miles from my house. I could walk if I was a New Yorker. Anyone else smell trouble? They didn't carry fabrics before, but now carry quite a few. Trouble. Especially when they bundle pretty fabrics in a sorbet bowl and tie a ribbon around it.
There's also another fabric store called Quilter's Cove that is only six miles from the house. I love supporting small businesses since I run one myself, so my online purchases have diminished somewhat. But what's that you say? XYZ Quilts A Lot is having a sale? Send me the link!
