    I just found this out....

    This company Quiltsmart is manufactured about 25 miles from my house. How cool is that?!http://www.quiltsmart.com/index.htm

    There is an article about them in our local paper.

    It's nice to see anything made in the USA. Maybe they have an outlet store you can hit!

    I have a couple of Quiltsmart items. I have been looking at their Lone Star Foundation. Wouldn't that be cool if they did have an outlet store that close? Boy, I know I would pay you for your time!!!

    ​Are they strictly a computer store or can you actually visit? That is so cool!

    Wow, keep your eyes peeled for a warehouse sale!
    People who start projects and never finish them are cooler

    This little West Aussie is just green with envy (yet again). American quilters are just soooooo fortunate.

    I don't know Vickey. I haven't been into Bend yet this week.
    We aren't scheduled to go into town until next week for our monthly INR tests.
    Besides I have been home sick with a UTI this week to go anywhere.

    Chase, maybe its a good thing or a bad thing. Too close, and you will be spending a lot of money. LOL
    Glad you found the place. Put pics of what you buy.
    Love to quilt and play with the great grandkids
