It's Visit Your Local Quilt Shop Day
I have always been an advocate of shopping at your Local Quilt Shop. Not only are they a wealth of inspiration, but are close at hand when you are of need of fabric or supplies.
If you are in the Kansas City, Missouri area, it would be worth your drive to the beautiful small town of Excelsior Springs, where the Wooden Spool is located. The shop is nestled in the heart of down town among other quaint shops.The owner Jamie always greets you with a smile and is willing to help you in any way she can. She carries the latest fabrics, a nice variety of threads, patterns, books and notions.
True inspiration comes from the ever changing samples that adorn her walls. Beautiful projects of all sizes. Generally a kit is provided, but you will always find the book or pattern and fabric variety to choose your own unique style.
She keeps her customers busy with, Block of the Month's, Mystery Quilts, classes and clubs.
Don't forget to visit your Local Quilt Shop and tell them how much you appreciate them.
