The Fabric Shop & Hop on Saturday, May 26, 2012 was a lot of fun for Cherry, Evelyn, Gloria, Narda, Bobbie, Alora & Melvin, and Cheryl! We departed from the Harrisburg Mall at 9:55 a.m. and thank you to Cherry and Melvin for driving.
Our first stop was Bird in Hand, PA. We shopped at Omar & Sylvia Petersheim Quilts & Fabrics, Log Cabin Quilt Shop, and The Quilt & Fabric Shack. We were delighted to get everything that we need for an upcoming table runner workshop including a discount for the Creative Grids 60 degree triangle ruler.
We took a break from shopping and had a wonderful lunch at Dienners. The food was delicious and one of us was introduced to a dish known as Chow Chow. The conversation was lively and one of the highlights was a funny story shared by Evelyn.
Our next stop was Intercourse, PA. We saw a lot of Amish horses and buggies along the way. We were amused by a passenger in one of the buggies who jumped on the floor to pray for his safety on the busy highway. We shopped at The Old Country Store, Dutchland Quilt Patch, and Zook's Fabric Store.
We purchased fabric for current projects and stash for future projects. As we were admiring our purchases, Narda shared how much she enjoys looking at and feeling the fabric she purchases before she cleans it and puts it away. We chuckled and pondered this during our "fabrigasm" discussion.
The Creamery was on the way home so we stopped for ice cream and free samples of Shoe Fly Pie and Mocha Cream Chocolate Cake.
We had a great time and look forward to the next one!
