    A few weeks ago I told you I was going to Lancaster. I only had Friday & Saturday of last weekend but it was one of the best two days I've had. It was so beautiful with everything in bloom. The dogwood trees were gorgeous. And of course their were the quilt shops. I got to go to: Log Cabin Quilt Shop, The Quilt & Fabric Shack, Bitty Kinna's, Zook's, The Old Country Store, Obie's (pictures attached-what a place, but fun), Goods, Sauder's, Burkholders, Weavers & PA Fabric outlet. Pa fabric outlet was mostly upholstery but did have a little quilting fabric. I of course bought fabric in everyone of them but one. Mostly to finish up projects & quite a bit of tone on tone. Definitely my newest favorite spot to go.

    YOU'RE MAKING ME HOMESICK!!! They were my old stompin' grounds for many moons! Glad you had a great time! Hopefully you indulged in some Pennsylvania Dutch eats!!! They don't know what Shoo-fly Pie is here in Wyoming...(sorry, I'm drooling)

    Sue, I smiled when I read this, because I have the same problem. No body in Texas knows what Maypo is and I have fond memories of eating it and watching the commercials.

    I live about 15 minutes from Obies. I was in there once, never again. I kept trying to picture myself trapped in the basement with all that fabric on top of me. You couldn't browse if you wanted to, and she has no space to cut the fabric; I was just SOOOO grossed out by that place! All the other places are great. Did you go to the Hayloft Fabrics in Morgantown? That is my LQS!

    I am going to most of those places for 4 days in June starting the 12th. Can't wait. Have been getting my list ready. I wrote down the name Obie's until I read some other posts and saw the pics. It doesn't look like somewhere I would want to be. Think maybe we'll try the Hayloft this time. Haven't done that one. Do you recommend it?

    You mean there was a basement? I did imagine my life flash before me if the place caught on fire. I actually found a few things there & they were very very generous with the cutting. One piece is almost an extra yd. & one was over an extra half yd. If you were in a hurry you sure wouldn't want to go. It takes a while. I didn't go to the Hayloft Fabrics but if I had known or been told about it I'm sure I would have.

    I actually use to live much closer (Ohio) and was about 5-6 hrs. away. Now I am 16-17 hrs. away. I didn't quilt as much when my kids were smaller though. I didn't actually eat anything except a homemade pretzel in Intercourse. I was afraid of running out of time so eating wasn't a priority this time. Hubby was in Elizabeth Town for business & I thought I should tag along is why I got to go there. I'm hoping business will take us back.
