Saturday morning I dropped Darrell off where he was giving his all day workshop and I headed out to see some local quilt shops.
The first on the list opened at 9:30am, which I was happy to see.
in Victor, New York
A very nice store, they had everything you could possible want. There was a class or workshop going on in the classroom and they were having a ball. Everyone was laughing and talking and it sounded like a lot of fun.
I had decided I had enough fabric and would limit myself at the shops I saw today. Now I'm kicking myself that I didn't buy more at this first stop. They had some wonderful fabrics that I passed by. (I would have gladly made this my one and only stop if I had only known).
On the road again, headed to the next shop.
in East Rochester, New York
There's a banner on the outside, saying 30 years in business. (It looked it).
Their fabric choices were not my fabric choices. I was hard pressed to pick out a few things to buy.
They did have a triangle ruler that looked like it would work better than the one I have at home that I've been using on a current project. Plus they had a bowlful of what they called "Quilter's Candy" - little 6" by 6" pieces of fabric folded up into little squares. They were only 25 cents, I couldn't resist.
Off again, this time to:
also known as Discount Sewing Center and Jackie Lynn's Fabrics
in Rochester, New York
Nothing much happening here. There were shop cats, but they were standoffish. I found a few things and was happy to move on.
If you want a sewing machine, this might be the place to go.
|That green is a fabric I had before and I used it all up, so I had to buy more, I love it.|
Done for the day with quilt shops, I went back to the room. My phone was almost dead. I didn't have a charging cord with me and I was afraid if my phone died I'd never find my way back without Waze.
