Started the Victoria Day weekend by sitting in a line up to cross the border for and hour and a half. Got down to Portland in time to check out Pioneer Quilts. I found this lovely shop on my last trip down south and will make it a regular place to visit. They are located 12117 S.E. Stevens Cr. In Happy Valey Oregon www.PioneerQuiltShop.com If you are on the 205 take the Sunnyside Road and turn on Stevens Cr.
On Sundays quilt shops are not open in Oregon so I missed visiting several shops that I enjoy. In Springfield we went off to visit At Ruth B's antique shop only to find that they had closed their doors! Something to Crow About also was closed for the day.
Next stop was Chico California where we found that Honey Run Quilts had closed! We went down the block to The Rabbit Hole http://www.rabbitholequiltshop.com/ at 2697 Esplanade where they told us that Honey Run had moved in with Cathy's Sew & Vac 2418 Cohasset Road. They have 2000 square feet in their new location. Sorry no pictures of either Chico store.
In Bakersfield Strawberry Patches has moved into a bright new shop just across the parking lot from their old store. They are located at 6439 Ming Ave. Suite C. http://www.strawberry-patches.com/
Note their old address is on their website.
A tray of sweets for all to enjoy.
