My 15 year old son and I spent the past two weeks visiting my mom and sibs in California. Time spent together went way too fast.
Mom isn't a quilter so I didn't bother with quilt shops with exception of one that I always check on when I'm in mom's town. Again, this was a bummer of a visit to the shop as the gals still have no personality and I find the most unfriendly. They do have two longarms that were sitting empty and I want to say the owner/mother was teaching one student something while her adult daughter worked on something by the counter in filthy bare feet and no care to appearance. I think I said something to myself like, "Wow, really?" I'm talking Bay Area!!
