A local quilt shop, Kindred Spirits, announced last week that they were closing for personal reasons. They opened just last Summer and had become one of my favorite shops -- so many bright, fresh fabrics. It's always sad to see a shop close, even if it means good savings to shoppers. I went out there last Saturday with my friend Sue. It was a bit odd because when we walked in they put our names on a list for cutting fabric. I've never had that happen before but it worked to keep order with all the shoppers. Maybe taking a number would have been better, like JoAnn's. In the end I had to wait for the employee to finish cutting Sue's haul before mine where in reality, they should have had a different employee cutting my bolts at the same time. Oh well.
I found a lot of fabric I liked. Truthfully, there was probably other fabrics I would have bought but the bolts were in other shoppers' stacks and I missed them! Never fear, I found a lot of great fabric:
These should keep me busy for months to come!
