On the drive down to Los Angeles today, we stopped in Carpinteria and I took a look at a quilting, and yarn store that I have heard about. If you like bright colors this is a beautiful place to go. It is one of those places where there is so much to see you just can't take it all in. I would sure like to live closer to this one. But maybe it is better that I don't.
Roxanne refurbishes featherweight machines and paints them really fun colors. One was red with white poke a dots. There were some very interesting appliquéd faces one could attend a class to learn. She had patterns you could buy also.
