            Hello
            I am not in Virginia but I am a stone's throw from it. I live in Eden, NC and shop for my fabrics in Martinsville Va. when the shop hops are going, I travel the lovely Va area from Lynchburg, Roanoke, Salem, etc - fun weekend trip for hubs and me.
            Glad to see other close by quilters.

Mom quilts alot - she is really good too! taught me how to store my stash! sis doesn't - she is a labor & delivery nurse - says she doesn't have any energy left for sewing - I think she just hasn't gotten the bug yet!! ladies in our family "get it" at 45 and she is only 43! hahahahahahah

                      My mom was raised in Richmond. She met my yankee dad at a USO dance during World War II. They married and moved to his hometown in Pennsylvania. Mom was quietly homesick all of her married life. When my dad passed away (19 years ago), she and my sister moved back to Richmond. I visit twice a year for a month or longer. We actually lived there 3 years when I was in elementary school. My grandmother was ill with heart trouble and Mom, my sis, and I left PA to take care of her. When she died Mom tried to get Dad to move to Richmond but he wouldn't go for it. Kind of a crazy situation. Won't bore you with the details. Anyway, I love Virginia! I often think I'd like to move to the Blueridge Mountains when my husband retires. Don't think I'll be able to get him to go for it, but we'll see. I love Williamsburg and Charlottesville, the Blue Ridge Mtns., etc. I have lots of fond memories of my times in that delightful city, so full of history.

                            Hi Rebecca
                            Shop Hops are at different times of year for different regions I gather. Here they are in the spring and also fall - how it goes around here is this:
                            area shops within the state will host shop hop and when shoppers come in they receive a drawing into a grand prize or two. Each shop has a special during the shop hop - it is great fun. My dear husband loves to do the Southwest Virginia hop through Lynchburg down towards Wytheville Virginia. It is at least a two day shop hop for us - haven't been able to do it in the past few years because of the folk's health care but I do intend on doing it soon. If I can keep my Mom healthy enough for a few days this spring whenever they have it, she's coming with us! LOL.

                              I am just outside of Richmond in a small area known as Sandston. About 3 blocks from Richmond International Airport. If anyone is looking for a quilt shop in the Richmond area, I highly recommend Quilting Adventures! They are in a small shopping center known as Willow Lawn. I take classes there and primarily buy most of my fabric there, if I am not buying precuts from MSQC. Also, I just checked out Millstone Quilts in Mechanicsville this past weekend. They specialize in Civil War area fabrics, if that is of interest to anyone.
