2013 ESSENTIAL TOPS SEW-A-LONG FINISHED PROJECTS

SISTERS WITH SCISSORS

THE SISTERS WITH SCISSORS made another excursion to the Atlanta area early this morning. Our first stop was to a newly remodeled Hancock store in Morrow, Georgia (right outside of Atlanta) where we received a grand tour. (Remember, my three sisters are all Hancock employees.) It was such a beautifully designed store. I did take pictures there but don't know what in the world happened to them.

Our second stop was Gail K. Fabrics in Atlanta and oh my goodness. Of course I have only seen a store like this on the internet so I was too overwhelmed. FABRIC WAS EVERYWHERE, even towering to the ceilings. Several weeks ago we had made a trip to Atlanta only to find that Gail closes her store at 4 p.m. on Saturdays. It was worth the trip back up there just to be able to see all of this.












We ended our trip at Super Joann's in Fayetteville, Georgia, not without talking about future sewing plans, excursions and sew-a-longs though. It was quite a day, and now I'm back home ready to hit my sewing hard and heavy once again.
