It's now official:

Runs with Scissors Quilt Shop in Citrus Heights, CA is open! Miss Citrus Heights even showed up!

Marie & Mark Duncan are the nicest people and their new shop is beautiful, filled with beautiful fabrics and all you will need to start your next (or your first!) quilting project.

Liz, Sydney and I drove down on Sunday. We became part of the crew that included friends and family from far and away. Here are Marie's niece and nephew, Chris & Nichole busy rolling fat quarters late, late into the night.

The shop was full for the Grand Opening, the Chamber of Commerce was there for the ribbon cutting. There was cake and all manner of goodies. Sydney poses with the fruit bouquet.

Here's another view of Marie's lovely shop. I bought a FQ of all 24 bolts in this Red, Pink & Black line. Liz demonstrated the AccuCut and cut out enough Tumbler shapes for me to make a Queen Size Quilt for MY bed. It is going to be so pretty.

Be sure to come to Sylvan Corners in Citrus Heights (Corner of Auburn & Old Auburn) to Runs With Scissors Quilt Shop. Tell that Crazy Redhead that BrendaLou sent you!

You ladies got my son (Chris), daughter (Nicole) and wife all quilting. I can't complain. I now have a beautiful 4'X 5' hanging in my office. Do you remember the guitar / music theme fabric. Very nice! Thank you for supporting Marie.
