Greater Atlanta Shop Hop Bounty

Hey Guys!

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!

I put my cash in my pocket to spend just for Shop Hop! 

My first stop was Intown Quilters, which is my regular stop for all my fabric needs.  This is what I got:

I am in love with Melody Miller!  The raindrops are a Alexander Henry print….I keep hearing Raindrops keep falling on my head…. The pattern below is one I have been looking at for weeks.  I had to get it! Greater Atlanta Shop Hop

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:

That pattern looks super cool!

Next shop was, Sweet Home Quilt Co.  No where close to my house but I think I would go back!

They had a great selection of pre-cut there. 

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.

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!

I am just a girl trying to be crafty. Well really a woman but my thoughts are girly. I am embarking on a journey. I hope to complete all of my goals, share and learn from others.

  1. I only got 3 of the strips, I think. Good for you for getting them all!

  2. Great haul, Kare! I am doing the Quilter’s Safari in Oregon the end of April. It was so much fun last year and this year I’m taking a carload of quilters! It’s 12 shops spread out over a 130 mile stetch so we’ll do it on two Saturdays so we can take our time. 😉

  3. Wow, nice pile of goodies. Have fun putting it all together:)
