Day 24! 6 shops today.
We will be home tomorrow. We have visited 60 quilt shops in 24 days. I have met so many wonderful people. Through this art of ours. I have heard from the UK, Australia, and South Africa, and our USA! Before we left Cedar City, Utah, I stopped in STITCHING IT UP. She is a featherweight affectionato! The owner’s husband used to paint and referbish them. He quilt to do his full time job. I told her he needs to quilt his full time job and work on these sought after beauts. Anyway, the shop is small and on a very cute Main Street. It’s very popular though. They have been in business for 15 years, have many kits, 2 longarms, have classes, and have Brazilian Embroidery supplies (beautiful). We then headed to Santa Clara, Utah. We went through the gorge that crossed over the Virgin river several times. It was very beautiful but we did see 107°. We got to THE CLOVER PATCH QUILT SHOP. Jill the owner says they have been in business for 14 years and have the lowest prices around. Most of her fabrics were $9.49! They have precuts, solid Konas for $6.99, and their classes start in September.
We went on to St George, Utah, to QUILTED WORKS. They have been in business for 19 years! They have an online store, lots of fun kits, a long arm, and a great selection of fabrics. We hopped on over to SCRAP APPLE QUILTS. Parking is a little tricky but doable. You should see this shop. They have been in business for 16 years. Shirley, the owner said they are a full service shop. They have 700 batiks. They hold retreats for up to 12. The customers there said it’s the BEST! I noticed when I got out of the van the cicadas were very loud. Our 5th stop was THE CHRISTMAS GOOSE QUILT SHOP in Las Vegas, Nevada. They have been in business for 30 years. They sell reproductions, wools, many types of fabrics and quilt labels. They have an online store and they have two long arms. Our last shop of the day was QUILTIQUE in Henderson, Nevada. It is a huge shop thst has been around for 19 years! Super friendly and great parking. Kara, the owner has an art degree and it shows. The shop is bright, clean, and well organized as well as welcoming. Their kits are all tested by them. They do online orders, have classrooms, and sell longarms. I left there with a bag of goodies for my retreats.
