The Greater Atlanta Shop Hop was a real experience for me! It was my first time and I was excited to visit all 10 shops in the Atlanta area. I started my journey on the day I picked up Princess Bernina. Before I went to the Atlanta Sewing Center, I stopped at the Quick Trip and played a scratch off….and I won $100! I knew then it was going to be a great weekend!
My first stop was Intown Quilters, which is my regular stop for all my fabric needs. This is what I got:
My photo bomber…Zeus. He was determined to get my attention. Now here is the best part of shop hop…every shop you go to you get a little grab bag with coupons, fabric scraps, candy and a free pattern! If you spend more the $30 in a shop you get a free strip set. Well I did not spend $30 in every shop ….NOT RICH! HELLO!!! So instead you can buy the strip set for $6 in each shop. That sounded like a plan! Here is what I got from Intown:
Next shop was, Sweet Home Quilt Co. No where close to my house but I think I would go back!
Stich N’Quilt was the cutest shop and it had a room full of cat fabric! The owner was this sweet lady who informed me …she tweets! Made me think about my Grand …aways trying to let me know …she still got it! LOL
A Scarlet Thread was amazing! They had a great selection of fabric …alot of batiks, which is not really my thing. They also had some design wall fabric that is a must have for my sewing room. I just got a strip set there.
Next up is Red Hen Fabrics. They had their fabric arranged by color. It was amazing!
Little Quilts was not little at all! They had a great collection of modern fabrics! I happen to find a jelly roll of Chicopee…. I LOVE CHICOPEE! Plus I got a free charm pack and some really cool coupons.
Georgia Sewing & Quilting was very far for me in Buford Ga. I will see them next year! I got a strip set and this very cute sewing set.
Tiny Stitches has a great selection of modern fabric and I when I saw all these dots I had to get them!
Last but not least is Patrick’s. This shop is also far from me but I will be back! They also sell plants, feeds and all kinds of nuts! I grab a bag for my Happy Husband and he loved them!
Here are all my strip set! All ten… I will be using all of these strips in my Maple Leaf Rag Quilt. More details about that later.
Well that is the full Bounty! I think this month I will be doing a lot of sewing!
Until next time, Sew Pretty!
