Notion Commotion

     Today, I along with some friends attended a "Notion Commotion" day at Ann's Fabrics in Canton, MA. Ann and three members of her staff had recently returned from Quilt Market, a tradeshow for quilt shop owners and others in the fabric industry. They brought back some of the newest patterns, rulers, tools, and notions. The shop was filled with quilters eager to see what they had discovered at Quilt Market.  Each lady in the audience certainly appeared to be doing her level best to help boost the local economy. 
     I signed up for a class and purchased some fabric, a wallhanging kit with a patriotic theme, a wire rack to hang this wallhanging on my front door, a pattern for a small sewing traveling case, and a package of Bali Pops. For those non-quilters who are reading this blog, a Bali Pops package contain forty batik, fabric strips. The package I bought was labeled "Mango Margarita." You can use these strips to make quilts, but I'm going to use these bright, tropical colored strips in an upcoming tote bag class. 
     All in all, it was a perfectly lovely way to spend the day.
