Wisconsin Road Trip and a BIG Sale
We’re going on another mini road trip this weekend and it involves a BIG sale. I don’t know – can a one day extravaganza be called a road trip? Maybe a better choice would be a day trip; nevertheless, fun and laughs will definitely be had by all!
Nancy’s Notions in Beaver Dam, Wisconsin is having a “Sewing Weekend Super Sale” in their warehouse and retail store. You might be familiar with Nancy Zieman from her television show called “Sewing with Nancy.” Wow, huh?! It starts on Thursday (today!) at 8:00 a.m. and ends at 5:00 p.m. on Saturday. It takes us about two hours to drive there, so we will have an early start on Saturday morning – no sleeping in allowed. But who could sleep in with all those sales calling our name?
What’s on our list to look at/purchase? Well, Sue says that she can always use fat quarters (only $1.25 when you buy 20) and buying 20 is NO issue. I am 100% sure we need a Olfa spinning cutting mat and some of those cute little clips. I also want to just look at the sewing machines . . . just looking! Plus new specials are added daily, so who knows what other gems we will find?!
Not only will we be hitting Nancy’s Notions but also another quilt shop in West Bend, Wisconsin. It is right on the way home . . . so it would be a shame to not stop and check it out, right?! The name of the shop is Royce Quilting. My only concern is that it is only open until 4:30 p.m. on Saturday and what if we’re still sale shopping? Then we’ll have to stop in another day. ~smile~ Hopefully I will be able to share a report on all our treasures as well as news of another not-to-miss quilt shop next week.
