At our July meeting we were lucky enough to have the fabric shop come to us! Actually our LQS closed it's doors last April :( So now we only have Hobby Lobby and Walmart for fabrics. lately I've become a fabric snob and don't buy fabric at these stores, not for quilting anyway (well not much, because on occasion you can find the good stuff.) The lovely ladies of Grand Bazaar Fabrics came by and brought all this yummy goodness with them:
I was extremely self restrained especially since they brought a whole lot of Amy Butler with them. I was good and spent a mere $20 on these beauties:
Masterpiece by Alex Anderson by Superior Threads and it set me back about $8! This was a tough decision for me to spend $8 on a teeny tiny spool of thread or to buy another 3 fat quarters of yummy fabric.
I finally tested out the thread last week and so far I LOVE it! I promise I'll tell you more about it later.
One thing I love about LSQG is show and tell time. The ladies of our guild are busy little bees and they never fail to disappoint with showing off, in a good way of course! I wonder how many of them are retired? I don't think any of them have toddlers at home taking up valuable quilting time except for myself and my friend Joy.
Here are some of the beauties form Show and Tell:
Do you belong to a quilt guild? Are you an active member? Do you like it?
