We had a lot of fun at the Grand Opening of Missouri Star Quilt Co. Their new store is beautiful and the turn out was huge! Here I am with Jenny Doan and her daughters Natalie an Sarah. I got so excited when we got there that I forgot to take a picture of the outside of the store……guess we’ll have to go back! We aren’t home yet, we’re still in Hannibal, MO but will head home today.
We have been having so much fun and eating lots of wonderful food and would you believe I’ve been going to bed early! Not as much high speed internet playing as I had thought.
I also got to meet a blogger friend! Builder Bob was standing outside the store and 2 women came up as asked him if he was Builder Bob (made his day). Then they asked if Connie was here and he said would I be here if she wasn’t???
This is Rina who came from south of Springfield with her sister Tammy and brother CA. She even brought me a gift but you’ll have to wait until I get home to see it. It was really fun meeting her and I’m sure we’ll get together again.
Jenny Doan’s sparkling personality is exactly the same as you see in her videos, she always has a smile! You can see her son Al in the background running the busy, busy register.
Fabric was flying off the shelves and there were free patterns from Moda.
Look at these displays of thread! Beautiful!
There were quilts hanging everywhere!
I meant to take a picture of the room where the videos are filmed but forgot….see how crowded the store was! You can see a better photo of the crowd here at the Missouri Quilt Star Co. blog.
At 2:00 they had drawings and gave away all kinds of books, fabrics, wall hangings and a grand price of this quilt! You wouldn’t have believe how hot it was with all the people there! Unfortunately I didn’t win anything but Rina and her sister Tammy both won prizes.
Builder Bob ended up having a great time…….he had fun talking to all the other guys who were outside where there was free hot dogs, water and chips being served by Jenny’s husband and dad. We had a cooler in the car and I think having a couple beers made his day fun…..crazy guy!
When I get back you’ll get to see ALL the goodies from my trip!
