    Tips for first time visit to M*

    I will be going to Hamilton tomorrow. Any tips on how to enjoy it in a timely manner? I have approximately 2-3 hours to spend. I've made an organized list, but I'm overwhelmed with excitement and not sure I can stay focused and find everything I want. Is that enough time?

    2 to 3 hours to see 13+ shops? I think you would enjoy it more if you at least had 4 or 5 hours, otherwise you will be rushing so much that you are bound to miss something.

      Depending on what you are looking for hit those stores this time around and when you have more time go back to the other stores. I live in Kansas City and every time I go we spend at least 4-5 hours just to look around and see all the stores again :-)

        Not having been there, I would say just concentrate on the shops you think you will have interest in. Personally, I probably wouldn't be interested in the sports themed fabric, or copywrited cartoon/movie/Disney stuff, so I would skip those shops this time.
        Maybe there is a list of the shops, so you can do a little preparation that way.
        Have fun and don't panic!

          Maybe go to the Welcome Center, they one they just had the grand reopening for. From the video it looks like they have a section for each of the other stores in the Welcome Center. It should give you an idea of which stores you want to visit. Even if you don't spend much time in the stores you aren't interested in, you probably will have time to at least pop in and look around. Enjoy! and tell us about your visit when you get back!

              I know that you are probably already there. My advice is to go to the welcome center first. It has a small sampling of each store plus you can print off a card that you can hand to the clerk to scan when you check out instead of having to say your email each time you buy something. (The card can be kept and used every time you visit MO*.)

              If you are just wanting to see each of the shops, then it is possible to get through all the stores in 2-3 hours. However, if you are wanting to do a lot of shopping in many of stores, the time frame is not long enough. Also understand that not all of the precuts are kept in the stores but if you let an employee know what you are wanting, they can request it from the warehouse and will bring it to you. I would recommend doing this when you first get to Hamilton as it does take a while to gather the items up at the warehouse.

              Have a great time

                I had a fantastic time at M*! I had plenty of time to go through all of the shops. I spent most of my time at the Penney's (Solids) and Licensed to Sew shops. I had lunch at J's Burger Dive, which was yummy. I even spent some time in Man's Land while I waited on an order from the warehouse. All in all it took me 3.5 hours. I had a well organized shopping list, so I think that helped. Plus, many of the shops adjoin each other, so that makes it very convenient. If you're feeling extra brave, take your husband and twin four year olds. I did, and we all survived.

                  We actually had a mini vacation in Kansas City, so the drive was a little over an hour. My time was constrained due to another activity with the family. But, I made it work.
