Kelly Ann's and Oh Sew Persnickety

The last 2 stops on Sue's "rowed" trip were Kelly Ann's Quilt Shop in Warrenton, VA, and Oh Sew Persnickety in Haymarket, both wonderful but very different shops.
Kelly Ann's welcomes you even before you walk through the door, with it's sidewalk decoration and old town character and charm.
Kelly Ann is the Virginia coordinator for Row By Row, so she is definitely A-Buzz!
Her Row By Row "Misbeehaven" greets you as soon as you walk through the door.
You can see from the photo above that the shop is a feast for the senses.
Though it required discipline, Sue managed to get away with just a couple of fat quarters and a magazine in addition to the license plate and row kit!

Located in the small town of Haymarket, Oh Sew Persnickety is a newer shop, open since February 2015.
This is not your traditional quilt shop.  It features the latest in fabrics from Alexander Henry, Art Gallery, Blend, Cloud 9, Free Spirit, Michael Miller, Moda and Riley Blake, and carries trendy clothing patterns as well as quilt and bag patterns.
It's clean, contemporary interior reflects the fabrics and other merchandise for sale.
Sue found this graphic print knit to use for a dress pattern she bought last year.  Since it seems she failed to get a photo of the completed row,  below is the photo from the Facebook page.  The row was designed by Polly Monica.
So that's it for Sue's "rowed" trip.  Soon we'll be sharing some shops that Elizabeth visited on her trip to New Hampshire.
