It's Local Quilt Shop Day

Are you a quilter? 

Do you appreciate quilts made by others? 

Or, is there someone special in your life that is a quilter?

If you answered yes to any of these questions then today is an important day!!

I am a quilter, sometimes I think I should be in a 12 step program for fabric addiction!!  I love fabric and it really didn't hit me until I moved and my oldest son called me after moving some of my "stash" and said he was going to create a new reality show called "Quilter or Hoarder - You Decide".  I do have a lot of fabric.  After I settled into my new place I donated 6 68 gallon rubber maid totes of fabric.  Now, if you saw my sewing room you would scratch your head and say "really?, You still have a lot of fabric".  I am now going through it again and so far have another Rubber Maid tote almost full to donate.  This is mostly because my tastes have changed and I am getting more selective in what I purchase.  Now, I only purchase fabric if it has an immediate intended use.  

But, that being said, today is Local Quilt Shop Day and I may be convinced to drop by my local quilt shop and see if I can find a backing fabric for the quilt I am making for my granddaughter.  

A few of my favorite shops in Maryland are:

Bear's Paw, 8812 Orchard Tree Ln, Towson, MD

Capital Quilts - 15926 Luanne Dr., Gaithersburg, MD

Material Girls - 6750 Crain Hwy, LaPlata, MD

Please support local shops, they are the back bone of our community and create satisfying and meaningful jobs for people with special skills!!

Women are not opt to take quilt making anymore. The local quilt making club is closing. Throw away .... Style changes. Family will take Apple pay in lieu of an old blankie.
