I am so excited. I went to WalMart today (well, that isn't what was exciting) to find embroidery thread. Now understand that I believe Aberdeen has the smallest if not closest to the smallest WalMart store ever and it keeps getting smaller and smaller in the area of notions.

Mark your calendar you Northwesterners for the Fall 2008 Quilt Shop Hop. It starts October 24th and goes until November 2nd and it covers the southwest portion of Washington state. So, whether you live in Seattle or Spokane, if you are a quilter and love quilt shop hops, check out http://www.sw-washingtonshophop.wetpaint.com/ & bookmark it as right now the site is a bit weak but I am sure it will have more on it the closer it gets.
The hop is being sponsored by Gee Gee's Quilting in Yelm and you can check out her shop at www.geegeesquilting.com. Mark it on your calendar and be sure to tell Gee Gee's that Ranny Jean of Aberdeen sent you. While she doesn't know me, you can still tell her where you got your info.
