Then We Shopped!

Remember a couple of weeks ago I was saying that behind every quilter there is a huge pile of fabric? Well...my pile is a whole lot bigger now! Friday morning our marathon fabric shopping spree began at Burkholder's Fabric Store, a wonderful shop in Denver, PA with over 12,000 bolts of quilt quality fabric at a bargain price and on top of that, it all happened to be 20% off! From there we went to Sauder's Fabrics, where I found the perfect tea party fabrics for grandbaby #4's quilt (also at unbelievable prices). Our next stop was The Old Country Store in Intercourse, PA for even more fabric and a stop upstairs to see the Fon's & Porter's quilt exhibit at The People's Place Quilt Museum. By that time we were all just about "shopped out", but we just couldn't pass by The Quilt & Fabric Shack in Bird-In-Hand as we were driving towards the highway. It was well worth the stop and I think we all found at least one last bargain. At that point we all declared that we had shopped 'til we dropped and headed home...happily fondling our new fabrics on the way. Lancaster County, Pennsylvania is certainly the place to go for fabric!
