Hubby surprised me with a “Road Trip>” We left Wed, mid morning and went to Batesville, AR. to Marshall’s Dry Goods. It is a large fabric warehouse and is open to the public. I was disappointed when I got there and found out that 1/2 the store in the warehouse is only for business or if you want no less than 3 whole bolts. The prices were about 1/2 the price of Hancock of Paducah. I will go back to Paducah before Batesville, A much larger choice, newer fabrics, and better quality. I did buy a large amount but was picky about what I got. They weren’t the fabrics you would find at your favorite quilt shop. We did stop at a few Quilt shops along the way there and home.(This is how I set my GPS was Quilt shop to Quilt shop). Worked great. Now I don’t need fabric for anything for a while, unless it is a specific fabric to finish something, We visited Sew a Stitch in Rogers, AR, Sew Graceful Quilting, Rogers, AR.,Country House Quilting and Quilt Shop, Pea Ridge, AR, Quilts & Quilts The Fabric Shoppe, Branson, MO, Blue Top Quilt Shop Lamar, MO. Now I am tired and need to put this away. Just had to share. Oh we did go to Wilson Creek Civil War National Park, Pea Ridge Civil War National Park, and George Washington Carver National Park.
The next group of photos are my purchases. Now I am trying to find a place for all this. Such a great time.
