Bus Trip Shop Hop

Well I tried to send a post from my phone and it did not work so now I'm home, rested for a day and I'm rearing to go. It was a lot of fun and wonderful to see so many quilt shops I have never been to. I was what they called the bus "mom" and there was 33 of us on our bus. I was able to get pictures of most of the 11 shops we went to.
Friday was our first day, and we left Sager Creek Quilt Shop in Siloam Spring, Arkansas at 6:45am and had 4 shops to go to from Tulsa Oklahoma up to Witcha Kansas
Our first stop was the Quilt Sampler in Tulsa. I was not awake enough to be thinking because I had forgotten I wanted to take photos of all the shop to show, so I have none of this shop.
Then we drove on to Guthrie, Oklahoma to Sooner Quilts. They had a very large flannel, 30's and western sections.





I apologize for the pictures, sometimes the fluorescent lightening interfered and then sometimes it just wasn't big enough to get a good shot. Knowing we were all coming (500 total) they would have a lot of merchandise out, making it at times kinda tight.

Next shop was Completely Quilts in Ponca City, Oklahoma. This was a very nice shop with a very large selection of embroidery thread for your machine.



This shop was hard to get photos, a tad small and very full. Amazing how much they had.

Then our last stop for the day was at Hen Feathers in Wichita Kansas. They had a little of everything, especially a very neat collection of chickens.




I wanted this Chicken so bad.




Well that was just a very small taste of those 3 shops and  have 8 more to go. I will post day 2 later.


Till next time
