New fabric stores to explore

Just spent two lovely days in Asheville, NC with my sister and three good friends. While touring the Biltmore Estate I couldn't help but notice there were no signs of anyone there doing any quilting. Hmmmm. They have beautiful tapestries from Europe and many other textiles but I didn't see one quilt. Perhaps some of the servants may have done some quilting but nothing pointed that out.

The estate and grounds are absolutely gorgeous. You can imagine how much they loved to sit on their balcony and look out over the Blue Ridge Mountains. Simply breathtaking.

No fabric shopping until today. Managed to stop in one quilt store in Asheville and one in Hendersonville, NC. Just a small purchase this time but there are more shops to explore. I can't do any sewing right now but nothing says I can't add to my collection. Some friends are telling me I shouldn't buy any more fabric but where is the fun in that?


  1. Nancy - I'll be camping in NC next month and am planning to go to Asheville and the Biltmore, too! You can fill me in when you get back.

  2. I'll be happy to do just that. Thanks for commenting. I know someone is reading what I wrote!
