The next shop was Country Stitchin' near Waukon. This is again, out in the country, but well marked and easy to find. It is a pretty large shop with a wide selection of fabrics. The gentlemen sitting on the bench in the front of the store was also at the previous shop but you can't see him in the picture. At Forest Mills, he asked why I was taking pictures and I told him it was for my blog. When I showed up at the shop in Waukon, he wanted to know if I wanted his picture again, so here he is. He was traveling with a group of quilters who were traveling in the white van you see in the picture.
On to Decorah and to the Pine Needles Quilt Shop. This shop used to be in Cresco and moved to Decorah. They have a very nice shop on the main downtown street. Lots of room, lots of fabrics of all kinds, kits and precuts. The shop was a American Patchwork and Quilting Shop Hop shop in the past as well.
The last quilt shop for today is Quilter's Garden in downtown Cresco. This smaller shop has quite a few panels and I find a panel of fabric that coordinates with some of the music themed fabric that I already have. Bonus points for me! Eclectic mix of fabrics and very good service.
Time to stop shopping and start delivering! I drop off the graduation stuff in Rochester and drive to Brooklyn Park to drop off the rocking chair, only to discover I was given the wrong chair!!??!! Back home I go, will try to get this straightened out tomorrow. Sunday hours for the hop are 11:00 to 4:00, so probably won't get to very many shops. Monday I will need to buckle down and get busy getting to the shops!
