Quilters on Vacation: South Carolina & Georgia
From Gail M-L:
Here are some interesting quilt shop signs from our family trip to South Carolina and Georgia this past March Break. My husband did some research to find some good quilt shops for us to stop at on our travels. How many of you would like to frequent the "Cut Loose Lounge"? "Sew Be It" was in Ringold, Georgia.
We stopped at "Sew Much Fun" in Columbus, Georgia to give Linda, a quilter who works at this store, a table runner that I had made for her for the Quilted Table Yahoo Group Spring Table Runner Swap. The store was closed, but she opened it up just for us.
"People, Places and Quilts" was in Charleston, South Carolina. This store had beautiful fabrics as well as very friendly and helpful staff. I purchased a kit to make the brown and pink quilt shown in the picture. (I have not started to work on it yet...)
I actually did a little stash enhancement at all of the stores we visited. The three antique quilts were on display at a museum at Colonial Williamsburg, Virginia.
