Every couple of weeks I find myself in a quilt store perusing the latest that the store has to offer. As I am lucky to have four stores in my area I can choose a store based on what I am in the mood for. Each of the stores has its own feel and focus. While one has a great selection of books, another has batiks to die for. And then there is the store that has an amazing selection of beads, paint, bobbles and bangles. What is a girl to do with so many choices? Wouldn´t it be great if all of my favorite things could be in one fabulous store?
Okay, since this is my fantasy, my dream store would be filled with lots of books, embellishments, useful quilting tools, as well as a wide range of fabrics from around the world. Since quilting is not my only love, I would also include yarns for knitting as well as clothing patterns. There would be lots of natural light for choosing fabrics as well as fun and snappy music playing in the background. Comfy chairs scattered around would offer the visitor a chance to lounge a bit while shopping.
Now it´s your turn. What do you look for in a quilt store? And if you could have a dream store what would it include?
