Let me tell you a little bit about my favorite quilt store….
Now, just like any other proper fabric addict, I’ve been to my share of quilting stores. But Valli and Kim’s has me by a stronghold. I am in absolute heaven every time I step through those magical doors. Stephanie and I are thrilled that the store, run by a sweet husband and wife team in a rustic, tiny Texas town, chose to sponsor our blog.
Amy, Tula, Carolyn, Anna Marie, Bonnie and Camille – All my favorite designers in one place? Surely I must be dreaming. (quickly followed by the thought – crap…this is dangerous!)
I simply cannot walk in there without 3-4 yards of fabric I did not plan on getting. This past Sunday was no different. I went in for 4 solids and left with 4 solids + these Amy Butler gems. I mean C’mon….they were literally glowing and calling my name. They really needed to come home with me. Right. That. Second.
My favorite part? Meeting another longarmer in the area named Laura. She had a pint sized princess with her and my little girl Danielle, couldn’t help but want to make friends with her little girl. Since Danielle was such a good girl letting Mommy browse through each magical isle (as if I’ve never been there and walked that same isle hundreds of times before) she earned herself a little treat.
Valli and Kim’s is right next door to a place called Crepe Crazy. So it was only fitting to head there and enjoy a Nutella and ice cream crepe afterwards. Laura and her little one had the same idea so we sat together and let the girls be girls. All in all – it was a perfect day. New fabric, new friends and ice cream – it doesn’t get any better than that.
Until next time – Happy sewing Ya’ll!
