Week 46, 2009 Stash Report

There’s a little quilt shop on my way to Louisiana from Missouri.  I never have time to stop because I’ve always driven the 12 hours straight through but this time, I was only driving half way, spending a night and then driving the rest of the way.  I was looking so forward to stopping in that little shop but . . it was a disappointment.  Not much fabric, mostly calico type fabric that I don’t use so I visited with the shop owner for a few minutes and left without buying anything.  I was kinda dreading having to report my purchases but I left there feeling quite proud of myself.  Nothing added! Hear that?  I left a quilt shop with no fabric!

  1. 5


    Doesn’t that feel weird? Like you did something wrong. Did you feel guilty about not buying anything? Even after you talked to the owner? It’s hard to believe that you could go into a quilt shop and not find anything to your taste. I remember that one time I went in to a shop and I don’t think they had any newer fabric for the last 5 years.

  2. 7


    Glad you left without fabric, I went to Mankato to give a talk on HeartStrings and visited 2 quilt shops and trust me, I left with fabric!
