Eight quilt shops in 2 days! October 21-22, 2011
We met in Williamsburg, IA before dawn and headed to our first stop at Yellow Creek Quilt Designs in Pearl City, IL and then on to Prairie Stitches Quilt Shoppe in Oswego, IL for lunch (and shopping!). Next stop, The Quilt Merchant in Winfield, IL. Our last stop for Friday was Life’s a Stitch in Janesville, WI. They stayed open late for us and served us dinner! We stayed overnight at a very nice Comfort Inn Suites in Milwaukee. I had every intention of working on my hexagons but I was too tired to sew. I did manage to take a couple pics and post them on Facebook!
Saturday we were up bright and early heading to Ye Olde Schoolhouse in Cedarburg, WI. Mill House Quilts in Waunakee, WI was our next stop for more shopping and lunch. And then we’re heading back to Iowa stopping at Vintage Threads in Dyersville. We’re all tired and worn out but the last stop at the Woolen Needle in Williamsburg ended our spree with a fabulous dinner provided by Carla and Annette.
It was fun and interesting to see all the different types of stores, the displays and merchandising. If you’re in their area, be sure to stop by!
