Celebrations of Needleworks St Charles

Hello!
Last weekend was way too much fun in St Charles





We met Karen of Rosewood Manor designs

Then there was Stacy Nash




We went to historical downtown for some shopping, found Stitches Ect.





There was some really neat stores, I found these metal signs for my Halloween wall




Ok, ok I'll now show what all I bought at the show



Karen and Stacy even signed my charts I bought from them, very cool

I bought a Dublin light also, love the magnifier, that will come in handy, I'm sure


It's a stand oblivious, plus a table stand and also comes with a clip, awesome!



On the way home we found Mom and Me Forever shop, love all the linen she had in stock,it was a very nice store and owner, can't remember what town it was in, but it was in Illinois


That is Lois and Anna from Madison, Wisconsin and then me, boy! did we have lots of laughs all the time spent in the car
All in all it was a fabulous 3 day excursion and would do it again

Thanks for visiting
Ill be back soon with a spooky finish

Kathy A. said...

Wow - that looks like an amazing time. And meeting some designers too. Way cool!
Love the new stash.

Phyllis said...

Great to see the pics Ranae. So sorry I missed meeting you. I was there most of the day Fri. except for a break for lunch on main street. We were in the lobby after the show closed for a while. I was having a hard time getting a connection on my computer, so just missed your messages. :( We stayed at a hotel over by the Bass Pro Shop. I got to go up the arch on the way home Sat. and it was so neat. I hope I can go next year and maybe I'll be better organized and can meet up with you if you go.

Lucky lady! How cool to get autographed copies right from the designers' hands!

Margaret said...

What a fantastic trip! Lucky you! Love seeing all the pics. Thanks for sharing!

Nan said...

It was great to see you. Considering all the possibilities I think you showed considerable restraint in your stash enhancement.

Catherine said...

Looks like fun!

I got to see karen of rosewood manor a few months ago and bought old glory as well. I posted what I bought there. I also did an interview but have to figure out how to upload it to you tube. Isn't she great. I bought the big flag one with all the state quilt blocks.

Deborah said...

Wow you girls had a wonderful time on your trip to the trade show - what a stash haul and shop visits too - couldn't be a better trip. Enjoy your weekend - melody

Lynn said...

What a wonderful retreat! You are so lucky. I love your new stash additions too. I miss being able to walk into an actual store and purchase charts rather than online. I also have to tell you how much I like your recent LK Halloween Rules. You did a fabulous job on it Ranae!

Looks like a fun time. I've shopped at both those stores, too... when I went to a retreat there two years ago.
