I recently moved to North Carolina (north of the Raleigh/Durham area) and I have yet to find a friend who wants to fabric shop with me. I love to leave on Saturday morning and drive to a quilt shop an hour or "sew" away, have some lunch out, maybe stop again at another shop on the way home. I also find my car stops at Michael's and JoAnn's with little asssistance. I went to couple of guild meetings, but I just didn't connect and didn't want to seem pushy.
The shops in Raleigh and Wake Forest are great. I've also been to Selma once during the shop hop last year, and would love to go back but it's a long drive by myself. I also heard about Mary Jo's, but it's nearly a 3 hour drive for me, maybe a weekend trip with the hubby sometime on that one.
I'm trying to turn some of my new friends into quilters but none have caught my bug yet! If any of you are in my general area and you're going to be at any of the local shops I'd love to meet you there sometime.
Hope this doesn't sound like one of those personal ads!
