For Thanksgiving, Andrew and I went to Wichita to visit his family. Because both of us are pretty serious introverts, after being with family for awhile, we need some alone time. Because I’m Type A and super prepared, I had planned ahead of time and determined we would drive to Yoder, KS, on Friday morning to visit a quilt shop. Then we would head back to Wichita and visit two more shops. The plan worked perfectly.
We left Wichita about 9am and stopped at Starbucks. Demelia’s Quilt Co. opened at 10am and we got there just a few minutes after opening. I’ve talked about this shop before and I’m going to rave about it again. It’s freaking fabulous! There were not having any Black Friday sales, but they have an AWESOME sale section. It was huge…probably 20-30 bolts. And they were all $5 per yard. Plus, they had $1.50 FQs and some additional remnants.
I’m not sure if you can tell, but it’s a tone on tone with sewing notions! Isn’t that just so cute?!?!
After finishing up in Yoder, we drove back to Wichita and went to Needle Nook. If you haven’t checked out Needle Nook, Google it. I found out about this shop because of the bra making classes that are offered by the owner, Ann. Basically, if you sew and need better bras, you should look into it.
I found some great knits that I plan to use to make leggings. I’m a huge fan of leggings because I don’t like pants/jeans. Don’t worry! I make sure my bum is covered when I wear leggings. Tunics were invented for a reason.
Finally, we made a quick stop at Material Girls. WHAT A FABULOUS SHOP!!!! Their selection is HUGE and it’s super modern. They also have a great $5/yard sale section.
I picked up some Hushabye by Tula Pink when she was still working with Moda. The Moda Bella was for a project and the two FQs were just pretty.
Overall, it was an extremely successful shopping trip and Andrew and I both enjoyed the time to recharge. Andrew is such a great sport when fabric shopping. He helps pick stuff out and makes suggestions and holds my fabric and waits by the cutting counter while I shop. I wish I could take him fabric shopping with me all of the time.
