Have you ever been to Vanderhoof?

Have you ever even heard of Vanderhoof? Probably not, unless you live in British Columbia. And I bet there are more than a few British Columbians who haven't heard of it either! It is actually a small logging and farming town in the geographical centre of BC, about an hour west of Prince George.

Why I am I rambling about such a small town?!? Because they have two wonderful quilt shops (which are magnitudes better than the shops in Prince George), and I went on a field trip yesterday to check them out.

Here are my lovely finds:

 From the bottom: Sandi Henderson Farmer's Market, MoMo Freebird, an Art Gallery Oval Dot (oh, so soft), Kona Cotton "Tomato", a Kaffe Fassett Dot, Heather Bailey Bijoux and Amy Butler Belle.

 A lovely Corduroy (bottom) and a Michael Miller print for a skirt for my daughter.
And some gorgeous Kate Spain "12 Days of Christmas" for a Christmas Table runner.

It was a great day and it was wonderful to see vibrant Quilt Shops in such a small town. I wish I could say the same for Prince George.

Have a great Saturday and happy sewing.

Visiting quilt shops is always fun! You got some great fabrics. I love the Kate Spain Christmas fabrics you picked out.

I think it's so funny how such a small town can have such great quilting shops and Vancouver only has one (expensive) shop! Lucky you! Next time I'm up that way I'll stop in!
