About two and a half weeks ago my husband and I had the pleasure of going to Vegas to have a short "get away" weekend. Of course the one thing we had to do while in Vegas was to visit a quilt shop or two to check them out/support the local businesses within the area.
We were able to visit two. The first one we visited was Quiltque.
I was able to pick up two one-yards for the rainbow bargello quilt I am currently collecting fabrics for. The store was vibrate, full of the more modern fabrics. They had a large area for the Berninas they sell, as they are an authorized dealer, and a large classroom. The store was neatly organized, and the project kits were right next to the samples, which is always helpful when someone would love a kit. The front windows brought in a lot of natural light, and it was airy and cheerful. Nice big shop, I just could not find a lot of blenders, which is what I was looking for.
The second shop we visited was the Christmas Goose.
At this location I found lots of fat quarters (neatly folded and put in a pack of 12 for a reasonable price), and an indigo for my bargello quilt. The fat quarters in the Reproduction prints will be used for a quilt that I am planning on EPP. I'm chomping at the bit to get started, but first I need fabric, and second I need to finish another quilt before I start. This shop was filled with some modern fabric, lots of blenders, and a ton of reproduction fabrics. Their kits were located pretty close to their samples, and they had some wool projects, and a scrap basket, fill a bag for X amount. They had a decent sized classroom, and every available place had an item(s) on it. The space was well used, and it felt homey and well loved. A sizable shop to visit just off of the strip.
Overall, my husband and I had a great time in Vegas, but of course we were happy to be home.
