    Two friends of mine drove up from Branson/Hollister and met me in Springfield and I chaufeurred rest of the way. We had never been to The Gathering before. I liked it and would go again. There was quite a difference in each display. Fat quarters varied in prices from $1 to $2.75. There was lots of yardage, all kinds of rulers, templates, patterns and books. I thought the people were very friendly and helpful. We also visited the 3 quilt shops in the area. Drove to Versailles and had lunch then back through Camdenton, found another cute quilt shop there, too. Drove to Lebanon and then on to Springfield and finished the day at Merrily's We Quilt Along. I loved everything. How often can you go somewhere where you can quilt shop hop in a specific area and hit so many stores without driving? I did purchase one of their The Gathering T-shirts, my momento of the day, pretty cute with the hoot owls. Should take a pic and for you all to see.

    don't you just love the t-shirt?

    did you drive out to the 2 "Amish/Mennonite" fabric stores too?
    they are in the Excelsior area--about 5 or 6 miles from Versailes.

    We thought about it and with the weather being iffy, we decided to head on home, made a circle but we will go again and not have to wait for another The Gathering. Thanks for asking and for the info you gave me ahead of time.

    I went Friday and bought some batting and Watkins coconut flavoring, my friends said the lunch there was really good. I also went to the shop in Stover and bought 12 yards of sale fabric. My budget always takes a blow at that shop!

    We went to all three shops there and enjoyed them but loved going to Claude's. I found the most beatiful teal batik fabric and all of it found a new home with me. His store was so cute and rustic. Gave us a map to the other shops but we had already been to NuStyle. Quality Quilting was very interesting in being able to watch how they quilting using the more vintage style frames hanging from the ceilings and using their stretched Singers. Great deals to be had on fabric there.
