Fabric Shopping

I love it — I know you do, too. When I was at the Silver Creek Picnic last weekend, I saw a bumper sticker on one of the beagler’s trailers that said: It’s not a sport — it’s an obsession. I have an elderly friend who is a trapshooter, who always says of his chosen pastime: It’s not a hobby — it’s an obsession. I could say the same about quilting! But, oh, what a therapeutic obsession! . . .

When I step into a fabric store, time stands still, the fabric fumes take over, and I load up and melt plastic without a second thought for anything else in the world! The high lasts for hours afterward!Corner Quilt Fabrics

As we were on our way to said picnic, we spent a couple hours cruising on I-70 in central Missouri. Going down the road, minding my own business, having a lovely convo with my cowboy in the pickup truck, out of the corner of my eye I caught sight of a billboard for Corner Quilt Fabrics in Warrenton, MO. Naturally, it struck me silent in mid-sentence, and my cowboy didn’t even have to ask what happened. He just took the exit and pulled up in front of the quilt shop without saying a word — what a champ!

This was at 7:00 in the evening, so imagine my appreciation at their late hours. They’re open from 10:00 – 8:00 Mon-Sat, and from 11:00 – 6:00 on Sundays. Not to mention they’re part of an outlet mall, so you can do lots of other shopping while you’re right there. 

Anyway, of course I bought fabric. I had to restrain myself, because this was at the beginning of the vacation, and I didn’t want to spend all my money and have to turn around and go home right then. But we’re on I-70 occasionally, and I think I’ll be stopping in again. If you’re ever in the Warrenton area, be sure to drop in and check them out.

  1. I did not know Warrenton had a quilt store at the outlet. Of course, I don’t think I have been to that outlet since being in love with quilt stores. (I have only been seriously quilting for a little over a year). I may have to get the hubs to stop there whenever we finally reschedule the girls’ six flags trip. We live in JC, so you were all but in our neck of the woods!
