#11: Go Shopping for Quilting Supplies!
A little known fact about me- I love to quilt! My mom and I quilted day in and day out when I was in middle school and high school. I first learned to quilt by hand and later moved on to machine quilting. I love batiks, applique, strips and curves, convergence quilts and McKenna Ryan Quilts (pictured above). My mom still belongs to a local quilting club that meets every week. Thus, I understand the joys and pleasures of scouting out new quilting shops when traveling. A quilting stash is never complete. There are always more fabrics and more patterns to be found (despite what your husband may think…) Lucky for you, there are tons of great quilting shops in the area!
Here is a list of some quilting shops in Northern Colorado, listed in order of distance from The Ranch. My personal favorites are The Fig Leaf, Quilting Hands, The Quilted Corner and Quilter’s Stash. NoCo readers, if you have opinions about these shops or know of other good ones, please respond as well!
