In March we attended CABS and met Alison Zacharkiw the owner. Unfortunately, Alison was not there when Elizabeth visited but it will not be her last visit. While a bit of a drive from Herndon, where Elizabeth lives, this shop is so nice it is worth the travel time and traffic. Light, large, open and full of beautiful fabric choices, it is wonderful to know that such a great fabric shopping opportunity is within a 40 minute drive. Capital Quilts’ row this year features the White House with quilts encircling it on the iconic black iron fence.
After leaving Maryland, she drove to Fayetteville, PA. While there are many quilt shops in Pennsylvania not many are along Interstate 81 and of the few that are, not many are open on a Monday. So, Elizabeth stopped at Sew’n Place. Sew’n Place is on state route 30 which is a good connector road between 15 and I81.http://www.dcnr.state.pa.us/forestry/stateforests/michaux/)
