For the last 13 years, a group of quilt stores on the Central CA Coast put together a group sale. Starting in Ventura and going to Paso Robles, 15 shops are involved. Besides great sales, the stores do prizes and events. Some even dress up the weekend. One was done as a "casino." Another was a playground with hopscotch game taped out on the floor.
But there's this one store that's the rebels. They don't participate normally. At least they haven't for the fast couple of years. However, that hasn't stopped them from decorating up and having a great time of it.
The Creation Station in Buellton, CA is run by Patrick and Dawn. They run an eclectic, vibrant and interesting place full of fabric (no, really?), patterns, and much more.
