I forgot my camera again…I must apologize. Some lessons I apparently must learn over and over. Although the first thing that hit me walking into Tater Patch Quilts was sound: the laughter, greetings and murmuring of many women milling around this store. And this isn’t a tiny store. I’ve never seen so many women in a quilt store before, I wondered if there was a shop hop or something going on! It turns out it was their monthly Saturday Sampler. (which explained the 60+ women) Robin and Diane, that comedy tag team, shared new quilty stuff, read customer helpful tips, gave some great simple project ideas and ended with a show and tell which quite a few women participated in. Okay, I’m thinking, I’m impressed. This is a destination quilt store. Feeling blue? Hang out at Tater Patch for awhile and you’re sure to leave with a smile. Take a gander if you have half a chance, you won’t be disappointed.
I taught my Miniature Quilt & Collage class there Saturday. Love seeing all the wonderful ephemera everybody brings. Incredible lace, delicate as a spider web and a valance of tatting…that’s alot of tatting!
This one gal was using a line from Moda, Charisma by Chez Moi. I didn’t take notice of it until she had a few blocks done. They looked old, I look at the fabric again, but it doesn’t look old. Hm, interesting.
