Fabric Galore shop grand opening!

My friend and I had a fun day in Blairsville today. First, we checked out the Hugs and Kisses quilt group who make quilts for children and nursing home residents. Right up my alley! We met the nicest quilting ladies, all busy making new quilts to give away. You just can't beat quilters for heart, can you? Stephanie will go sew with them next month, but I will miss it due to a conflict with my trip to Florida to work the quilt show. I'll be sure to be there with fabric and machine in March, though. I'm itchin' to be stitchin'!
Next, we popped in at the new quilt shop, Fabric Galore, and the crowds were there, all smiling and happy. The new shop is big and bright with loads of space for fabric. They are getting fabric in, and I am looking forward to visiting often. The classroom is wonderful! It has a large open space with the tables for sewing. There is a Gammill in the back of the room, but Patricia (the owner) says they aren't quilting for customers. I don't care, it is a great place for the machine, and I bet she loves having it there! Best of luck with the shop...we need a quilt shop in town. I hope the quilters patronize it and help it grow. Thanks to Pat and the girls for a fun diversion today.
Quilters love a new shop in town.

More fabric, and one of the cutting stations.

You can see how much potential this shop has for growth!

Oh, Melinda! Dawgs.....

Lots of Dawgs!
