Luckily there is a Trader Joes at the first exit in CT so she did her grocery shopping for the staples needed at the lake house while she waited. No crowds shopping at 9 AM!
Well worth the wait for the doors to open at 10, The Quilt Shop by Lois is small yet bright and pleasant. The fabric selection at this store was gorgeous, she certainly knows what appeals to quilters, especially those with a bend towards modern quilt designs and clean, clear large prints.
After driving through the rest of Connecticut and switching to Interstate 91, Elizabeth stopped at A Notion to Quilt in Shelburne, MA.However, this year she now knew the owner, Becki Stratton. Becki had attended CABS in Virginia this past March.
