November Shop Hop
We had a great time last Saturday. Shop Hopper's were Deb, Cathy, Linda and Rhonda.
We headed to
for a stop at
Needle and Thread. A Civil war reproduction shop with a side business making
reenactment clothes. It was a very interesting
Next stop was
's Fabric of
Greencastle. Not as exciting as I remember but they did have some nice
Christmas fabric and fabric panels and patterns. Marion
On to the first shop hop in
, we pass a sign that says “Shady
Grove Fabrics”. Yes, we have to go back
and check it out. What a find! It is run
by a “German Baptist” woman, dressed much like a Mennonite. The small shop was brightly lit and full of
nice fabric. There were lots of panels
and Christmas fabric. They also had a
shopping cart full of fabric at $2.50 and $3.00. We did a lot of damage in that shop. Surely will visit this shop
Now to the first shop hop shop – Traditions at the White Swan in
. Demos, food, finished products for sale. The quilt pattern designed for the “hop” was
a Hagerstown plate
pattern. It was gorgeous. They did a demo and had a template that will
make it so easy.
They also had a large selection of wools and patterns for quilts and penny rugs. The wool quilt was awesome. They were very personable and the shop was full.
It’s about 2 pm and we are getting hungry. Looking for a place to eat, Mexican it is. Consulted “SADIE” (Cathy’s GPS) and she pointed us to a great Mexican restaurant. We knew it had to be good since it was crowded at 2 in the afternoon. Excellent meal.
Last stop was in
Nice fabric, wide variety. Cathy
Airy Maryland fabric. Their shop hop quilt was a maple leaf
pattern. We have the pattern for that
one too. University
We were home by 7:30 pm. It was a great day
