    Monday Sept 10/2011

    Sewscrappy & I decided to take a road trip and managed to hit three quilt shops along the way.. Mind you we were not close by no means, we left at 6am to make the drive to arrive at a decent hour..

    the first stop we arrived to find out they are closed on Mondays !!! YIKES !! :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock:

    However sally being the courageous one of us two went up and knocked on the door after she saw 'someone' moving things around... it happened to be the shop owner maybe ?!?!?! ( My apologies, your name slips my mind-however Im going to make a guess it was Debbie.. ) . She was lovely enough to let two complete strangers wander thru and OHHHHH and AHHHHH over all her quilts.. It was beautiful ... Oh and if you happen to read this Wonderful lady that you are !! .. Thank you again for your hospitality.. We quite enjoyed your shop and hope to visit again sometime soon when you are actually open.. I promise..

    Had I thought to bring my iphone I could of taken some pics.. talk about a stupid "DUH" moment I had..






    Here's a neat colorful map of a few Quilt shops in Kansas..

    The second quilt shop was Mulberry Creek Yarn & quilt shop in Winfield.. I was unable to locate a website but you can find them in Facebook..

    http://www.facebook.com/pages/IYarn-...34948806570951

    they had a very nice section of yarn and a few bookcases of quilting fabric.. oh and don't forget to pick up one of their surprise 'scrap bags' for $3... Never know what awesome treasures you will find!!

    The third shop we found was Rippit Quilt shop.. Not a quilters favorite thing to hear when quilting.. But, I have to admit this shop may change your minds after seeing it in person.. I have to admit tn... Its absolutely beautiful.. Don't let the outside fool you,it is quite deceiving.. Its a pretty BIG place..

    and yes we did walk out with a nice BIG addition to our stashes!!

    Cool adventure and thanks for sharing. I lived in KS for 5+ yrs. Praire Quilts in Wichita, Kechi Quilt Shop, and an LQS in Newton (forget the name-15 years ago!) were my haunts.
