Missouri Star with friends


It has been a wonderful trip so far to the Missouri Star Quilt Company.  It was a gorgeous day today in Hamilton, MO and has been so much fun. Good friend Kelly drove up from Kansas City to join us for the day, which was an added bonus.  We all started the day at a very nice shop in Cameron, MO and then our bus arrive in Hamilton about 10:30. Had most of the day to explore all of the Missouri Star shops, and had some very tasty food in the local restaurants. I'm glad I planned ahead and left my suitcase half empty so I had room to pack away my purchases for the trip home tomorrow. We will have 1 quilt shop stop in Omaha, which is about half way back to Mitchell.  

One highlight of our trip was the trunk show by Jenny Doan yesterday evening. She is so entertaining, and creative.  Two and a half hours went by very quickly as she told stories, shared quilts and techniques. Just fabulous!

  1. The shop in Cameron is nice. I remember purchasing a lot of patterns there. They had some beautiful quilts on display.

    I'm thrilled that your trip has gone well. I'm eager to hear more about the fun things you saw and learned.

  2. I was just there last week. Then we went to jamesport which I think is about 15 miles away. There we went to 2 Amish fabric stores. Some of the same fabrics as Missouri Star, just a little cheaper.
