We got to Oklahoma today and visited three great shops. The first one was "Oklahoma Quiltworks" in Oklahoma City. What a great shop! I forgot to ask how long they have been in business. They have all kinds of groups that meet in their great classroom. (Kids camps, guilds, feather weight groups, etc.) The owner, Toni, carries many different items including very cute items from Australia. They have online shopping, Facebook, and instagram. I noticed for the first time nice music was playing in the shop. I thought the way they folded their fat quarters was interesting. This is a must stop place. We drove on to the shop "Sew & Sews" also in Oklahoma City. They sell fabric as well as machines! (Pfaff and Viking) and they service them on site. They have been in business for 14 years! They always carry Christmas fabric. In fact they have a Christmas room! They carry 5,000 bolts of cotton fabric, Minky backing, wide backs, and cork. Their Kimberbell is 50% off for a couple mor days. They have an online store and have lots of classes, and provide Long arm services. The service dog "Lacey" may greet you. These two shop are very near Lake Hefner.
Our third shop stop, I was not prepared for. As my husband was taking the photo the owner popped out of the shop and stood next to me. From that moment on there we're super happy vibes. The owner, MaCrae, (a fun Scottish lady), is sooooo fun. She has been in business for 3 years and shares her business with Bandit. She has an online store, class rooms, and kids camps. Please make this a stop. Oh, and she is featured in Quilt Sampler magazine. Our last stop for the day in Tucumcari, New Mexico. Off of Route 66 she has been in business since of 2008. Snowbirds are welcome and anyone shopping from out of town receive a fat quarter with a Route 66 print. This cute shop carries mostly south western fabrics from 5 vendors. They have a very large classroom, Block of the Month classes and quilting groups meet here. She plays relaxing good music here. Very nice owner. We drove on to dinner to a local recommended Mexican food resturant. I recommend it. The internet is verrryy slow here so this post won't go out until Tuesday night instead of last night.
