bestie quilt shop hop
a few weeks ago, my bestie came to town for a week’s visit…

bestie quilt shop hop
aside from sewing and visiting, we have begun to add quilt shop hopping to our routine since many of the local shops where she lives have closed up….and truth be told it is ALWAYS more fun to shop together…


this shop does this fun photo for visitors from far distances….

    I’m glad you enjoyed your visit. It IS more fun to shop with friends. I like the handholding kids fabric.

    I love shopping with friends, I meet up once a year in November with my best friends for a day to attend a sewing and knitting festival.

    how fun to have a bestie that loves to sew like you do. and to include shopping in there also is so fun. i like what the shop does for long distance visitors. my mom and i was like that. she is gone now. and none of my other friends sew or really care to go shopping. love it when you share your experiences.

    We had such a great time, both shopping and a wonderful time to visit. Wonderful memories!

    Shop hopping is better with friends, I’m always the designated enabler!

    Oh, those little paper dolls! Perfect for scraps on the same day you talk about shop hopping with your bestie, right?

    Your outing sounds like so much fun. I can’t wait until I can go fabric shopping with my best friend. We’ve added her daughter-in-law to our outings–how lucky we are that she is a fellow fabric lover, and I’m so thankful that I can count her among my closest friends, also. Two in one family, what are the chances? I keep thanking her son for his good taste. πŸ˜‰

    I, too, have a special quilty shopping friend! 2 sets of eyes are always better! And it does make for such fun memories, always lots of laughing when shopping with her!!

    I’ve started taking my mother-in-law out for shop hopping- she is relatively new to quilting even though she can sew…She wants to build a stash! ~ And I’ve ordered 2 sets of that lovely deer print. It is just too Cute- Just for my sweet little grand baby (5 months old today)!

    I’m excited to know you are a fellow Minnesotan!!! My two daughters and I love to fabric shop together! Usually there is coffee involved also. We love Quilt Haven!

    I WISH I had a quiltie shopping friend! What an absolutely wonderful marketing idea to take a picture of visitors that make a long trip to visit the quilt shop. I know you had a great time.

    Love all the greens! My mom and I used to fabric shop hop; what fun memories.

    I like the Alison Glass bits still peeking out. I’m glad to hear you had such a wonderful time with your friend, social media can’t replace time spent doing things β€œin person β€œ with the ones we love, though I am certainly grateful for free long distance phone calls these days. I hate to think what my phone bill would be like otherwise…..probably a bit like my power bill, now that winter has struck.
