Quilt Club, October

The Quilt Club went on a shop hop for the October meeting. Any trip to a quilt shop from here is quite a hike. Living in the boonies has its good points, believe me, but being close to a quilt shop isn't one of them.

We went to Miles of Stitches in Merrill, Michigan first. Very nice store, tons of batiks. (drool)

This whole wall is batiks!

Nice big classroom.

Then we went to Common Threads in St Louis, MI. Much smaller store, but has a wonderful collection of precuts. I'm a sucker for precuts.

This bin is filled with precuts.

First time a shop owner has asked me what I'm going to take pictures of when I've asked for permission. Maybe they've been burned by someone taking pictures of samples? That's all I can think of. 

Then to lunch! Quilters have to eat!

A good day was had by all!

I'm a sucker for precuts too! And a sucker for quilt I live in the boonies too so totally understand not being close to a good quilt shop. Sounds like you a had a fun day!

That meeting sounds like a lot of fun - fabric shopping and food? Great combination! :)
