Barb & Lilly took a class from Eleanor Burns.
Micheal Miller had a superhero theme for their booth complete with a phone booth! Riley Blake had a den for the men. The Quilted Fish ladies had a great mad hatter theme.Here a picture of the line-up for sample spree, and this was even taken at the halfway point! For those of you that don't know what it is, sample spree is a chance for retailers to buy small amounts of fabric that isn't coming out for months! A chance to get samples done before the fabric actually arrives. It's like Black Friday for fabric retailers!

The first stop was "This is the Place" museum. We stopped at the Deseret hospital building in the park for a peek at their quilt display and for a show and tell by a local quilter.
Next stop was Pipers Quilts, beautiful shop!! Nice displays, quilts hanging out front and goodies to boot! What could be better?
Then we went to Gardner Village, a cute little collection of shops. Pine Needle was located here and really got the creative juices flowing. So much to look at, the shop was VERY nice.
Elaines Quilt Shop is set in a beautiful brick building with lots of space, yet still very cozy feeling. Definitely picked up some goodies there.
Quilts Etc. is one shop but in two seperate buildings across the street from one another. We had very little time here as we were running late but would have loved to have stayed longer. Lots of selection for every taste, a real find! After our long day, we decided it was time Tammy was initiated into loving Mexican restaurants. We headed over to Blue Iguana, which is owned by the same people that own Red Iguana voted best restaurant last year. SOOOOOO good. Tammy was not liking the look of the Mole dish though, look are deceiving. It was delicious!
Once we were back at the hotel, it was definitely time to veg out. First class at 8am, what a day it will be!

Glubers are one of the hottest items in scrapbooking from Winter CHA and have been back ordered for quite some time but we now have them in stock. What are Glubers you ask? Well, they resemble a giant glue dot that you can easily adhere fabric, ribbon or paper to to make beautiful flowers and embellishments for your pages.
There are 4 different styles to choose from.
We R Memory Keepers Cameos look gorgeous in the center of Gluber flowers as well as add a nice vintage Shabby Chic look to your projects.
