I will be somewhat "footloose and fancy-free" for a couple of days in Seattle while my DH attends a conference. I would welcome names, notes, comments about any quilt shops in the area.
I might also take a couple of WIPs with me and enjoy some uninterrupted time to do some handwork on those (binding? applique?). Sitting in the corner of a hotel lobby, doing handwork is a sure-fire conversation-starter and adjunct to people watching. It's quite different from seeing folks connected to computers and smart phones.
In advance, thanks for the input. Much appreciated.
