Visit to Scrap Apple Quilts

I traveled to St. George, Utah today with my friends Jean Boyd (Patterns by Jean Boyd) and Anita Zobens (Cotton Mill Threadworks). We are registered in the Superior School of Threadology for the next few days.

We flew into Las Vegas , then took the St. George Shuttle through spectacular desert country (does anyone know what a talus cone is?). We arrived at our hotel, dropped the luggage, and took Bob Purcell's (owner of Superior Threads) offer of a ride to a wonderful quilt shop - Scrap Apple Quilts!

Our shopping spree begins!

We found the staff were cheerful, warm and welcoming to us tired travellers. The selection of batiks was outstanding. Scrap Apple is celebrating it's birthday, and had a huge sale on. My favorite find was rick rack! And yes, I bought lots.

After a happy 1 1/2 hours in the store, the owner Shirley Baptist offered to drive the 3 of us back to our hotel. Talk about Utah hospitality! We really appreciated her kindness.

Tomorrow we begin the School of Threadology, and my next post will tell all...
