…or at least that’s what my hubby calls it!!
Let me show you what it looks like and how it works…
Here is what the App looks like on my iPad…it’s on the right, in the middle called “Quilt Shops”.
Ok…so let’s pretend that we are driving down the I-5 and I see a road sign that says Red Bluff 30 miles away. I get out my iPad and tap on this Quilt Shop App…and the map pops up…(if it doesn’t just type in the town’s name and hit SEARCH)…Presto…a map of where you are heading with red pin dots appears..these pin dots represent the QUILT SHOPS in the area!
Touch the red pin with your finger and PRESTO…you get this…key the address into your GPS and you will be at the shop before your hubby knows what hits him!! It works like a charm!
If there are a lot of quilt shops in the area, you will get a list like this…see it shows you how many miles away they are!!
I touched the last shop and got this…I wanted to show you that a lot of the shops have also included their websites…just touch their http: link and PRESTO you are reading all about the shop! From this info you can tell if it’s your kind of quilt shop! That’s how I found “Something to Crow About”…my kind of shop!! (See yesterday’s post for pictures!!)
This App is FREE!! But be warned, your hubby might just call it the Despicable App!! Not to worry…he’ll get over it!
Everyone has been asking to see the loot that I bought from ‘Something to Crow About’…well I really do hate to KISS and TELL but…in the 15 minutes that I was there I managed to take over 40 pictures and buy the following loot…
The pattern to ‘Plaid Stars’ by Something to Crow About.
I loved the sample quilt done up in plaids and civil war fabrics!
The Winter Quiltmania fresh off the boat from France…
This sweet wool mat pattern…!
Again it was the sample on the wall that sold me…love the stars on the tongues and the crows on the branches…and then there was that hand dyed mottled wool…sigh….
I bought the kit to make this Jan Patek pattern…
It was the fabric that sold me…Crossroads by Jan Patek! I loved it because it wasn’t Christmasy! It was Wintery and very sweet!
Seeing it made up was the clincher! I had to have it and the price was right!
So not a lot of damage but not bad for 15 minutes of tearing through the shop like a mad woman!
I was ready and waiting on Main Street’s curb with plenty of time to spare! Whew!
Now where’s my iPad and that despicable App? Next stop is…?
Hey..only eleven more days to go until that jolly fat man in the red suit squeezes down your chimney with his big bag full of fabric!!:o)
Hope you have a good one! ~P
