Last Stop on the QA Blog Giveaway (Today Only!)

30 Mar 2011

Greetings and welcome to the last stop on the Quilting Arts everything-must-go blog giveaway! Change is in the air and things certainly are bustling at our Stow, MA offices as we pack, and pack, and pack, to get ready for our new location in Sudbury, MA. As the day winds to a close, we may be a little tired from lifting so many boxes full of crafting supplies, but we most certainly haven't finished giving away prize packs full-to-the brim with awesome quilting supplies to our readers! 

To win one of the 3 prize packs that I will be giving away at 5:00pm TODAY, please leave a comment below answering the question:

What was furthest you've traveled to buy an item for your quilting studio?

Please note, due to the timing of this giveaway, we can only ship to U. S. destinations today. Sorry to our international folks, but we thought it was better to give away free stuff rather than not give it away at all, and this is the only way we can ship. (If you live outside the States, and still want to play along, maybe you can have your goods shipped to a friend in the U.S. who can then ship to you.)

Good luck!

I live in Texas and there's actually a few quilt shops near us.  I've been fortunate that I haven't had to travel far or could order online.  If you count ordering online, then I believe that's New York.  If not, then about oh...30 miles or so. :)

I traveled two  + 1/2 hours by car to look at a sewing station, but finally bought one closer to home (about an hour away).  But really, wherever we quilters travel, we are always looking for stuff.  You already knew that, didn't you?

Ummm, three hours to my grandfather's house to pick up my aunt's old Singer treadle machine?  Except I didn't buy it...but I'll have to pay to get it working again!

After flying from Houston to Atlanta on business, I made it a point to drive my rental car north to Marietta to visit Little Quilts so I could get some of the fabric featured in their books. This was not a quick or convenient trip, but well worth my time.

I regularly travel 220 miles to Portland, Or. for supplies. If I can't find it there, then it is mail order and I have had packages come from all over the world including: England, France, Holland, Australia, & Japan. Living in a rural area forces you to be creative and learn to seek out alternative methods and tools, but sometimes you want/need the supplies mentioned in an article, book, or dvd. Then there is the lust factor - need I say more? LOL!

In Los Angeles, it is easier to speak in amount of time to get to a place vs. miles because traffic is so delightful here.  I have driven 2 1/2 hours to get supplies, fabrics, etc.  I think that would be the greatest amount of time spent driving.  With the internet, I have ordered fabric, fibers, etc. from all over the world which I LOVE LOVE LOVE doing.  For a greater distance I often dream of going to Europe for the sole purpose of allowing my creative side to soak everything in to inspire my muse and then to shop like a fool for fabric, papers, etc.  This has been a dream then upgraded to bucket list thing and now I might upgrade it again to a NIKE, "JUST DO IT!" thing.  Rock on Quilting Arts!

I live in Louisiana but my brother lives in North Carolina. We've driven up there a number of times to visit him and luckily for me, on our first visit, I spotted Mary Jo's Cloth Store in Gastonia simply driving past it on the interstate!

I convinced my husband to take me there during our visit -- poor guy spent hours carrying bolts for me on my first visit (and we may have actually made two visits that week!). I made it to Mary Jo's on every subsequent visit to Charlotte, even if I had to go by myself.  It was always an adventure -- even if it involved a trip of more than 750 miles to get there!

Sadly we haven't been back to Charlotte (or Gastonia) in years but I still have fond memories of my visits to both places! (And Mary Jo's has a website, in case I ever run out of the fabric I collected there!)

So far, the furtherest I've traveled for my QUILTING supplies has been NC.  We live in FL and travel each summer to NC.  DH plays golf and I meet with quilty girl friends, visit as many quilt shops as we can find, and take a few classes.  Mary Jo's in Gastonia, Randy's Quilt Shop in Greensboro, and Marty's Patchwork Cottage in Black Mountian are my FAVORITE NC QUILT SHOPS.
