    We took a little mini vacation in the Finger Lakes and I got to meet Barnbum and all her wonderful mini horses and the fantastic miracle dog Buddy! Karla took me to two of her favorite Mennonite Shops and I went a little crazy. The prices were too good to pass up for name brands like Hoffman, Moda, P&B, Kona Bay. I ended up buying 31 1/2 yards of fabric at one Mennonite shop, 3 yards of which were 108" wide back for only 5.25 per yard and 17 1/2 yards at the other. If that wasn't enough the next day while out riding with DH and DB I stumbled on another quilt shop and bought another 14 yards and a couple of beautiful Geisha panels. Thank you Barnbum for a wonderful day of memories, fun and bargains! :thumbup: :lol:

    Barnbum drove and she took all back roads. The two Mennonite shops I couldn't tell you what the names were. Perhaps barnbum will post and disclose. The 3rd shop I stumbled on was in Hammondsport at the south end of Keuka Lake (Lovely, my favorite lake!) The shop was Lake Country Patchwork. Wonderful shop with tons of Asians prints and a very wonderful charming proprietress. She made me very happy that day.

    Oh yay, she FINALLY posted. :lol: I've been itching to post one of these photos. :wink: FF and I had so much fun!! She treated me to a delicious lunch in Penn Yan between shops. It felt like we'd been friends a long time. I ended up with 31.25 yards that averaged $6.21 a yard.

    Here's what I added from shopping with feline and others I've purchased in the last few weeks. I took photos of it all before washing everything. I've kind of been on a spree. :oops:

    Well--if you go through Penn Yan on 14A, then across from the hospital turn left on Rt 364... follow that until you see Voak Rd on your right--it'll be almost to the top of a big hill--Edgewood is on the right--there's a farm house then the store I think... maybe two farm houses first... but it's just a tenth or so down once you turn onto Voak. The fabrics are in the right back corner--wonderful stuff and the best prices!!

    No--not that much, but it's definitely worth going. She has fabrics arranged by color in one section, another row of rich fall colors, then around a shelf she has two rows of batiks and some flannels. There's a small section of buy a yard get one free. I noticed when feline and I went that her prices are now noticeably less than Ada's. I hate to say that because I adore Golden Lane, but there were a few that were quite a bit less at Edgewood.

    Karla, thanks for posting directions to Edgewood. I've been to Golden Lane several times (and always bought too much) but never heard of Edgewood. I feel a road trip coming on.

    I can never remember the name of other people's animals. :lol:
