I made the 2 hour drive north tonight to join my mom for the monthly "Quilt til you wilt" Friday at our local quilt shop. I do consider this place to be my 'local' quilt shop, even though its 2 hours away. My Aunt is the store manager, and my mom moonlights at the cutting table on the weekends. This place is my home.
This event is completely worth the two hour drive. Nothing better than quilting, good food, and small town gossip.
