Oklahoma Quiltworks was the first place I went to when we moved (almost two years ago! My goodness time flies.) that I felt like I belonged. They immediately welcomed me into their fold. They understood the "modern quilting" consumer. I was in heaven. Since that first visit I have gone on to form friendships with some of the people who work there, I have taken a class, joined a hand stitching group, found my guild, and frankly when I just feel like I'm going to burst because I haven't talked to a grown up in a day or two...they're there for me. And on top of all of that...they even welcome my kids! Not every store is happy to have a 2 and 3 year old walking through the establishment.
So, do I love my local quilt shop? Whole heartedly. The ladies at Quiltworks are part of my Oklahoma family. So, any day that celebrates them is totally worth it in my book.
