Quilted Memories in Montague, MI was our first stop. This is a darling shop with a wide selection of quality fabrics and supplies, as well as a full line up of classes and special events. The owners and workers greeted us with warm smiles, hot coffee and cookies, and lots of samples, fabrics, kits, books/patterns, etc. The first thing I saw was this cute little pot holder kit.
Around The Block Quilt Shop in Portland, MI we were made to feel welcome when the owner climbed on the bus to greet us and tell us of the discounts available and that the shop had a gift for each of us. Above, the driver again helps us off the bus.
Quilts Plus in Kalamazoo, MI. Check out all the samples on the walls. They had a lovely wool corner too. Of course there were refreshments waiting for us after our long trip, then we all got down to the business of shopping. I wish I had taken more pictures here because this is a terrific shop with lots and lots of samples as well as patterns, books, and anything quilty.
Hope you can join us next year for this fun filled day!
On Another Note: Shabby Fabrics has a free BOM for this year. Check it out and get patterns for the first two months now.
Until next time,
Stay Calm! Stay Kind! Stay Positive!
