McAlester, Oklahoma is what my husband and I refer to as a little big town. You can’t quite call it a small town, but its not big enough for a local Joann’s Fabrics or Michaels.
Fortunately, it is small enough and yet big enough for there to still be a need for a local quilt shop in town and I absolutely love that! This week I finally ventured inside the little quilt shop on the other side of town from where I live and it was a delightful experience to say the least. The owner is a sweet older woman, who spends most of her time in the shop on her quilting machine. Business must be doing good because when I asked her if they did classes she replied, “When I have time to. I’m always on my quilt machine, I’m six months behind.” So good for her!
Also, it was a breath of fresh air to go into a quilt shop where the prices on fabric weren’t through the roof! I am so excited to go back and support the quilt shop when I need more fabric for the Zipper and Project Bags I sell online. Her prices are so affordable.
Also, she has a small inventory of DMC embroidery floss, so I will try to use her as a resource as well before shopping online. I ended up buying some fabric from her shop and assured her I would be back soon. <3
