Sue Spargo Trip

A few weeks ago 5 friends and I made an overnight road trip from Indianapolis to Uniontown, Ohio, which is just south of Akron.   Our destination was the Sue Spargo store.  There were a couple of quilt shop stops in Dublin, Ohio, on the way.  Since we were a group of 6, one of the girls called ahead to let them know we were coming.   There is open sewing on some Wednesdays in the classroom next to the shop so we got to meet others that were working on Sue Spargo projects.

Here is the main part of the shop.  There is lots of wool, ribbons, buttons, and thread.  

Here we are in the shop.  I'm on the left.  My basket has some goodies in it.  You will notice that you don't see much wool in photos on my blog.  OK.  You haven't seen any wool yet.  That didn't stop me from buying a few things there.

They took us on a tour of the back room.  Here is some of the wool.  The back area is mostly for mail orders.  We were allowed to go back there and shop off of the shelves.

Just look at these beautiful colors.

The wool is dyed in house, and we got to see the room where it all happens

Here are just some of the ribbons and trims in the back area.

These are all of the different type of threads.  

Here are samples from the shop that were for sale.

More ribbons waiting to be packaged.

Here are just a few of Helen's blocks that she made in a class with Sue up at Mackinaw Island.  Helen brought her blocks along to pick a sashing fabric.  They featured Helen on Sue Spargo's 
Instagram page on Featured Friends Friday.  Helen is an awesome stitcher.  I always enjoy seeing what she's working on.

I know you want to see my haul.  Here are a couple of pieces of Tula Pink that I bought at one of the quilt shops where we stopped.

Here is what I bought at Sue Spargo's.   I have a lot of supplies.  Now I just need to make it into something.   
Shamefully, what I bought that day is still in the bag.   I keep hearing it's going to  be a long, cold winter so I'll have plenty of time to work on a wool project.

Thanks for stopping by for a visit.

I hope you are finding some time to stitch today.
