Lancaster County, Day 3

Our last day in Lancaster County was again rainy, but not quite a gloomy as the previous days. We spent the day visiting two quilt shops in Denver PA that were recommended by other stitchers and quilters.

The first was Burkholder's Fabrics where we found some lovely fabric and some instructions for some very cute Dresden Angel ornaments. Some of the people in our group just pulled up a chair and made themselves comfortable while others shopped.

Our second stop was at Sauder's . I must say, it was quite an experience. The very large store is in the basement of a house, and there is no public restroom, just an outhouse out back. The bulk food and spices that are also sold there were a bit of a puzzlement, but the prices for the fabric were very very reasonable.

After stopping for lunch at Miller's Smorgasboard again, and checking out their quilt shop, we headed back to the hotel for an afternoon and evening of stitching.

Of course there was a session of show and tell so that we could all admire each other's purchases.

Thanks, Barb, Carol, Elaine, Lynn, Pam and Sue, for a great weekend!

How odd to sell bulk foodstuffs at a fabric store. Rare!

It sounds like such a lovely weekend, Eva. I've really enjoyed reading about it!
