    ...you go into a LQS or any fabric store? Notions, fabrics? If fabrics, which ones? No matter how much fabric in the shop I always seem to gravitate first to the batiks?
    Inquiring minds want to know.

    New fabric lines are usually what I check out first, then any kits since my LQS usually has great deals.

    Well, I won't say that I never get distracted.... anything pretty, shiny, or bright that catches my eye will have me heading in that direction!!!! I did forget that I do usually hit the sale aisle second, if I know where it is :wink:
    I didn't mention that I usually have to repeat my wanderings atleast twice, as I always miss something the first go round LOL

    I tend to start on the left side and work my way around the whole store. Even if I know what I'm looking for and know the layout of the store really well, I still seem to always do it this way.
