On Friday, we devised our own "shop hop" and visited four shops on our way up to Center Harbor, the home of Keepsake Quilting which Jackie dubbed "mecca for quilters." Our first stop at The Quilt Patch in Bedford set the playful tone of the whole day. The proprietor, Sue Trask, had just opened the store and watered her garden as we arrived. We spent a ton of money, laughed, consulted, pondered, drove, criticized the GPS and even had a wilderness adventure that will go down in family lore. ;-) Getting to Keepsake Quilting was so much fun.

|Cute country shop in Andover. All quilts in the shop go on sale at half price after Thanksgiving, and they were beautiful. Good place to get holiday gifts.|
