One of the blessings of writing about quilting is that you touch and are touched by quilters around the world. Living in a period of history where the advancements of technology allow us to get to know others who are interested in the same things we are is a gift. No longer do we have to settle for quilting around the quilting frame with those within a few miles of us. Now we can share, learn and laugh with quilters in other countries. When I send my musings to the web editor, I never really know who is reading but occasionally I am blessed with a visit from a friend I have never met.
It was such a surprise when I got a call from the Stitchin' Post that there was a quilter from the UK who was in town and hoped I would be able to meet her at the shop. Janet has been quilting for 40 years and is my kind of quilter...she loves it all!!! Currently she is finishing up a king size quilt and has also followed me down the Buttermilk Basin rabbit hole!!
We spent some time sharing stories and encouragements...but...what I really wanted to know is what kind of shopping does a quilter from the UK spend her money on???
Well...it is pretty much the same as any quilter this side of the pond would work...we quilters are more alike than different, LOL. And, because I spent a bit more time in the shop than I had intended, I contracted the quilt virus and bought a couple more items....that I swear I really needed!!!
Stay tuned and travel along with us on Quilt Roadies.
