I love to go to Black Mountain Yarn Shop 
in Black Mountain, NC...
My friend Kathy Guenther now loves it to.
We made it a stop on our Thelma and Lousie adventure
on the way to QuiltCon!

We also found fabric !
Yes, the name of the store was misleading but we saw
a billboard for it and then a local in the
yarn shop assured had quilter cottons.

And it did with reasonable prices!

There was lots of MODA...lots of it!
I spotted a bit of Lotta Jansdotter and
a few other Modern designers.

This is a BIG store and had all kinds of fabrics!

If you like batiks...they had those!
and lots of Novelty prints

Doctor Who fans would be excited!

And some GRUNGE made it all worth while!

If you travel this summer and are near Asheville, NC
be sure to check out Black Mountain 
Its just 30 minutes East of Asheville and worth the trip!
it has it all!

I know QuiltCon is just a memory now...but its still worth talking about.  
It was my first...and all I thought it would be!

I was one of the first thousand to register, I received 
this cool bag full of swag!

Get a load of these "Dashes" (Churn Dash Quilts)
