friday morning, before the official sewing summit festivities started, i took part in a little bus shop hop with 50 other women. and i shopped.til.i.dropped. literally. we visited two shops that i seriously couldn't get enough of. if you ever find yourself in SLC, you must check out Material Girl Quilts and Pine Needles. they are fab.u.lous.
first up: fabric. my stash at home was in need of some blender fabrics, so i was on a mission. lots of fat quarters.
i also picked up a couple patterns that have been on my wish list for a while.
there were lots and LOTS of fabulous door prizes on our shop hop. my prize was this adorable Halloween jelly-roll. so i had to pick up a fat quarter and charm pack to go with it.
at this point i was totally satisfied with my purchases, but i still had room in my carry on. the solution: yarn store! i picked up a few yummy fall yarns to make some cowls.
this doesn't even include the fabulous sewing summit swag bags! more on that later. :)
hope you are all having a wonderful weekend!
