On Friday I drove for almost 3 hours, making 3 turns and landed in the small town of Brunswick, MO.
And there it was - Sew Sweet Quilt Shop - one of the most adorable quilt shops I've ever visited (and there have been many!)
With 2 floors (and an elevator to get you there!), the fabric, patterns, samples and inspiration blew me away.
With a warm, friendly staff that made me feel at home immediately.
And I love seeing shops venture out into fabrics other than quilting cotton. Home dec and laminates by some of your favorite designers...
The fun part of the trip was hanging out with some talented, fun and eager to learn students. We made modern Dresdens...
And got a start on some Sunburst quilts
One of the highlights of my weekend was meeting and getting to know Tula Pink.
We stayed at the same B&B and I so enjoyed basking in her quirkiness and passion for quilting.
As we left the event she told me to email her ~ I think we're friends?!
More happy faces: Dear Sewful Participants
As much as I love teaching, I'm always a little jealous of the opportunity to sit and sew for a whole weekend. It didn't take long for me to fire up the sewing machine and make some progress on my latest Sunburst once I got home. . . . Cindy
