I am happily exhausted. Today was Fabric Acquisition Road Trip, aka FART. Five of us met at the appointed time to head to Kings Mountain, NC, the home of Faust Textiles. The drive back included stops at Mary Jo’s, Gastonia, NC; Sew Much Fun, Lovell, NC, and QBee Quilts in Charlotte, NC. We were pleasantly surprised to find clearance fabrics at Sew Much Fun on sale for 60% off.
We stopped for a delicious lunch at a new restaurant located aside Mary Jo’s. We were all impressed as the waitress did not write anything down. Despite five very different orders with special requests, everything was amazingly correct. And the food was good.
My goal for the FART was fabric for Quilts of Valor, kennel quilts and pillowcases.
