Sample spree

Last night was sample spree, the shopping frenzy where quilt shop owners and those who came with them can buy the latest and greatest new stuff: fabrics, patterns, other goodies. People get in line hours in advance, I kid you not--totally unnecessary because once we open the doors at 8 pm every one is in within 5 minutes.
Hundreds attend and the lines wrap around the building in two directions. Here is an idea of the eager crowd:


  1. Wow -- quite the crowd!! So what kind of fun things did you find?!?! :)

  2. New patterns, a few groups of jelly roll strips, and silk yarn and ribbons. Now I'm on to see the show!

  3. Looks like you are having fun. How is your knee holding up? One word: Ibuprofen! :0)
