Re: The Journey to Quilt Market Begins

I have never met a quilt shop I haven't liked. Of course there are ones that are liked, even loved more than others. I love getting lost in the colours and textures. I could browse for hours appreciating the talent and work that has gone into completed projects. Stores that let enjoy yourself without pushing for sales are my favorites and I usually spend more in these shops.
My two favorite shops are Hamels just outside Chilliwack BC and Along Came Quilting in Calgary AB.
Hamels I love for their rural setting and charm along with the variety they carry. I visit here whenever I am in the neighbourhood.
Along Came Quilting can always be counted on for their great nuterials, varietyalong with the friendly knowlegeable staff (this is my home store).

Re: Holiday Party Treats and Gifts to Make

It is hard to pick just one treat as a favorite. My mom would start baking weeks before Christmas and fill the freezer. When we were allowed them we could never wait for them to thaw before scarfing them down. Of all she made: date squares, lemon squares,carrot cake, gingerbread cake, date filled sugar cookies (a reciepe develope for my dad) and various pies and tarts the butter tarts had to be the best. I love raisins and she always put them in separte from the batter so there was always lots. No one made tarts like my mom, to bad the receipe was not written down and was lost when we lost her.
