Our guild sponsors a mystery ride twice a year. This past Saturday, we piled into the bus looking forward to a fun day of shopping!
Our first stop was The Victorian Cupboard and Sewing Studio in Methuen, Massachusetts.
This was such a cute shop! It wasn't a large shop but it had the nicest fabrics and accessories. I plan on visiting this shop again.
We were greeted with coffee and pastries. I think everyone enjoyed our first stop.
Our second stop was the Hampstead Middle School in Hampstead, New Hampshire. They have an annual craft fair that has a huge following.
There were many different crafts represented at the fair. I'm always amazed at the ideas people come up with. Why don't I think of these things?! Lots of fun items!
We had a great lunch at the Atkinson Country Club in Atkinson, NH. Donald Trump made an appearance here the day before our mystery ride.
Our last stop was Stitched in Stone in Kingston, NH. I was excited to see a store with yarn as well as fabric.
This shop was loaded with fabric and patterns. There was quite a line at the cutting table. A lot of us bought fabric since we enjoyed a 10% discount.
By the end of the day, I was exhausted! I bought a few things and had fun hanging out with friends. These trips are always a fun time and this one was no exception.
