I've loved hearing about this trip from all of you that I've talked to. Katrina, Natalia, haven't talked to Jen yet. I'm so jealous of the fabulous time you all had together!!!! I so look forward to stories from your next Attic Needlework get together. And pictures of all the beautiful finished bags as well!

Sharon McQuistion

Your little stow-away loves you to pieces! So cute!


Thank you for sharing photos of the Attic Needleworks. I'm on the East coast so it seems so very far away to me. The samplers on the walls are gorgeous!! Seeing them makes me want to go stitch.


Oh my goodness, what a fun time you had! I love the little cutie in your bag. Look at all the love! It always does a girl good to have a getaway like that. Thanks for sharing!

Debra Scott

Looks like such a great time!!! I love it when you share with us.


Sounds like you all had an amazing time!

Robin in Virginia

What a wonderful weekend you had! Thank you for sharing the pictures and the links of your adventure.


Thank you so much for sharing this wonderful time for you and so beautiful pics You make me dreaming ♥♥


There is nothing that can compare to a stitching trip with the girls. So glad that you had a wonderful time.

I am one of those people who is terrified of flying, BUT this post is honestly one of the best PRO flying posts I've seen. Just to be able to hop on a plane to spend a weekend with old friends and SHOP and STITCH and of course EAT - really sounds wonderful. And to think it's only a couple hours to most places within the US. I may have to just face this demon eye to eye one day soon and go on a little weekend adventure like this. Loved your pics and enjoyed living vicariously through your trip to Phoenix. Happy stitching!


I want your little stowaway. :D

Wow! Isn't traveling and stitching, shopping, and eating with friends the best! Wish you and your friends could drop in once a month for Sampler Sunday...such fun! Old World Quilts is my favorite too. Thank you for showing the Christmastime Sampler and Katrine Thomsen....over two on 52/60 count linen. It was delightful to stitch. Have fun at market next weekend! I will miss popping in to see you!


It's the perfect time of year to visit Phoenix! I've been fortunate enough to visit The Attic twice, though the 2nd visit was really quick. I'm looking forward to seeing the new shop someday. It sounds like the perfect girls weekend!

You must show us your Troll Bead acquisitions - if not here maybe Instagram?!


I'm so lucky to have the Attic as my LNS!


What a fabulous weekend Paulette! I have got to get to that store and see it in person-it looks amazing.
Fezz is so adorable sitting there in your suitcase, I bet he missed his mama.

Melody Bryan

sounds like a grand time with the BF's - glad you had a safe and fun time - Mel


Hi Paulette (and friends),

It was so fun on Sampler Sunday all of us stitching, eating, drinking, stitching, eating, laughing and showing our wips.....

It was great fun talking with you also. Can't wait until you can come back again. Cute stowaway, btw!

Lynn Jones

Seriously, 52/60ct linen! There's just no way, I haven't even tried the 40ct yet! Either way it's a beautiful sampler. I loved all the photos from your weekend. Girlfriend outings are the best!!


The Ann Topley 1802 sampler reminds me of your Colonial Garden design...the dark fabric and bright colors! Love that one. And I love your new designs too! I am in Tucson and have only visited the Attic once...I really want to get up there again for a longer visit!! So glad you could enjoy our beautiful AZ winter!


What a wonderful getaway! You were in my neck of the woods. I've never been to that particular quilt shop, but of course adore Attic Needlework! Serranos and Crackers and Co are both great! Did you shop for Trollbeads at Cornelia Park? That's where I go, adorable shop!


Looks like a perfect time!! Some day I hope to get there! So lucky you are to have great stitching friends! I'm quite envious! ;o). And I love your would-be stowaway!
