Luckily for me, most of the Oregon quilt shops are located in convenient clusters that aren't impossibly far from home. Notice that I'm not describing them as close, because some of them definitely aren't. But I'm taking it one shop at a time and hoping to make it up to Washington for a day trip before time runs out.
Earlier this week we took a road trip that included most of the shops on the way to Grandpa's house. I'm hoping to visit the Central Oregon shops on quilt show weekend and the Eugene shops soon after that.
One of these shops was new to me and a couple weren't participating last year. It's a fun excuse to check out all of the shops. Some I may not return to, at least not until next year's road trips. Others I'll get back to at the first opportunity. Have you ever come across a shop that changes a dollar a yard more for clearance fabric if you pay by credit card? That was a first for me.
