Those who find themselves in or near Center Harbor, NH will find all kinds of excitement at the Keepsake Quilting Summer Tent Sale. (I'm pretty sure there's no Winter Tent Sale.) 70% off fabric! There are some allusions to the fact that it's more than just quilting. Knitters, you know them as Patternworks. Cross-stitchers recognize the name from Keepsake Needle Arts. (But the poor scrappers, Keepsake Paper Crafts is going out of business.) You can read about last year's fun here.
I can't be there this year, maybe next. I'll get my cousin the engineer (yes, she's gone back to work!) to start thinking about how best to cram fabric into a zip-top bag (apparently you can buy as much as you can get in a bag for $5.)
Highlights include a fabric auction, games, and great prices. Because in New England, people are cheap and you have to price things low.
