I just got back from Las Vegas early this morning, about 1:30 am to be exact. Even though I am a tad tired-the trip was awesome. The weather was clear, sunny and 40+ °C. But that didn’t stop me from dragging my boyfriend to a few quilt shops around town. Two of the stores were close enough to taxi however; it makes more sense to rent a car. This gives you adequate trunk storage for all your purchases. I visited the following three quilting shops:
The Fabric Boutique
Based on website alone, Christmas Goose (CG) and Quiltique would have been my favorite but after visiting all three, they were all good with pros & cons to each.
Christmas Goose- was the closest to our hotel (The Orleans’ Hotel and Casino) and the ladies working were very friendly. The store was clean, well organized and had a lot of cutesy items. I bought a kit based on the pattern Girl's Best Friend Lap Quilt by Ellen Replogle (book: Laps from Fats for Family & Friends) and a couple small notions. The only con for me was that they carried a lot of wool products which really isn’t my thing.
