A SPECIAL PLACE
Last week my sweet Hubby and I traveled to Hamilton, Missouri, the home of Missouri Star Quilt Company. We had a wonderful time shopping in all four of the fabric shops owned by Missouri Star and meeting the Doan family and everyone associated with Missouri Star.
Jeff told me to shop, and that's precisely what I did. Here are the gorgeous fabrics I brought home ~~
There is enough fabric here for seven quilts, which should keep me busy for the next two years. The unique thing about shopping at the Missouri star shops is that each one has a theme.
The main shop is quite large and has an excellent variety of newer fabrics, patterns, tools and gorgeous samples on all their walls. Two doors down is the Mercantile shop, which sells primarily Civil War reproduction fabrics, but also new lines that would lend themselves well to Civil War patterns. They also had an awesome selection of 1930s reproduction fabrics. This was my favorite shop.
There is also a shop that carries holiday/seasonal specialty fabrics (gorgeous selections) and another shop that carries solid fabrics, blenders and assorted other fabrics that are almost solids.
The very best part of our trip was getting to meet Jenny.
Jenny is such a gracious, friendly person. We were thrilled to meet her and the rest of her family.
This is a trip I hope we can take again and again.
