I celebrated here in Vegas Yeh! I don't have my Nikon D80 here so the picture quality is a bit low...but I just couldn't wait to show my fabric haul. I went to Henderson to Quiltique. I found some great fabric there and the staff was awesome and friendly!
As it turns out I went to 3 quilt shops yesterday. First on my list was the Christmas Goose. They had tons of charm packs, honey buns, cupcakes...Moda central...plus patterns and wool galore. One problem...they were not friendly at all. They were in their own little world. Once I did decide to buy 1 charm pack and 1 yard of fabric, the gal met me at the cash register, she started to enter my purchase and mid-way turned around to speak to another employee. I stood there waiting for them to finish their conversation and then as if she'd forgotten what she was doing she turned around with a look like "oh you're still here.." totally rude in my opinion. I could have easily spent $$$ there...but I was disgusted by the 'feel' of the shop...as if me being there was an inconvience.
So I thought I'd head to Nancy's. That's quite a ways out in terms of driving in Vegas. I did not buy anything there. No one said hello to me while I was in the store or asked if I needed help...it's as if I wasn't there. It was strange. So I checked my face in the car and my clothes. I was wearing black pants, pink top...clean, no food in my teeth....I look normal. So the only reason I could come up with is that they didn't need my business....so I didn't buy anything there.
I made a stop at Micheals (we no longer have one near us) and Jo-Ann's...but left empty handed. Total bummer...until I stopped at Borders books. Gracie wanted a Petal Fairy book.
So I'd say overall I found some good things, with a few 'bummers' in between. Here are some pics of my loot. I plan on making some really cool things for MODA bakeshop tutorials...I've got to get sewing!!!.
Wow...Fresh is so beautiful...I didn't grasp it looking online...when I saw it in the Fabric Boutique...I HAD to have some...love it.
Both gals at the Fabric Boutique were friendly but didn't hover....they had sales! yes 20% off anything with red in it...that certainly helps. There was a different feel to this shop. So I bought a few things, Thangles for my MIL, a few yards of Oh Cherry Oh!, Fresh! and Patisserie. I behaved myself...um kind of.
Like I said, I've got an aweful lot of sewing to do! oh I am sooo excited. I have a million ideas ....
