On Wednesday I mentioned that The City Quilter was having a 20% off sale (psst: it’s still on today). And yesterday was also Visit Your Quilt Shop Day, which a lot of people blogged about. Between the two of those, well, I practically felt an obligation to go see what they had. I’m sure you … Continue reading Fabric Friday
