    I can't wait for one of my best friends in the whole world from Alaska to arrive this Thursday, Husband and her hubby is off to Cabela's for a HUGE trip while she and I are headed to Sister's Quilt Shop in Chehailis, WA on Friday. They have over 10,000 bolts of fabric. It is a beautiful and huge shop with massive long isles of fabric to get lost in. I can hardly contain myself. Lunch and fabric shopping, what could be better?

    Try your best to get sleep between now and then even though it will be tough! :lol:

    You're going to have a wonderful time - because you're spending it with your friend and you'll be quilt shopping. Sounds like the best kind of day to me! :thumbup:

    I know. Isn't it the most awesome thing. Did you click on the link 10,000 bolts of fabric? The pics are making me drool.

    I LOVE GEE GEES. They have a wonderful selection. They are not always the friendliest of folks but they do have great choices and goodies for quilting. I am taking my sweet friend there too. She is from Alaska and hasn't been able to do a lot of fabric shopping the last few years. So many of their few stores closed up there and she only has 3 to shop at now. I have planned 3 stops for the day and will find a great place for lunch in Chehailis or Centrailia. There is another one in Centrailia.
    I can hardly wait. I suspect I will be dreaming about fabric all night.

    Hooray!!! I hear of people coming to the PNW all the time and making a fabric TREK out that way just to go to Sisters. Is it really that wonderful?
