The Mystery Bus Shop Hop was a great success. The 17 women participating looked forward to see the next shop
on the trip.  We visited 11 shops in Illinois and Indiana. Each shop had a different atmosphere and variety of items. Some shops had demos for us.  Also, we had some great meals at 3 shops.  We also had some wine and cheese at one Shop for a snack. I am planning another mystery bus shop hop in July.

This Friday and Saturday is the first week in the Central Illinois Shop Hop --- Shop will open at 9 a.m. and close at 7 p.m.  Stop by and see us.  We will have some snacks to eat.

Mark your calendars for the Paducah Quilt Show in April!!  We will be taking a bus down on April 25 (Friday) to see the show.  We will have a overnight stay and on Saturday will go to Hancocks Fabric and other places.
