A Quilters Oasis   Mesa, Arizona

I had the opportunity this fall to travel to Scottsdale, Arizona.  While I was there, I of course, went on the search for a local quilt shop to visit.  I found A Quilters Oasis in Mesa.  Mesa is about 30 minutes from Scottsdale and was easy to find.  Owner Kathy Reynolds was in the day I visited and welcomed me to her shop.  Kathy is originally from Sterling Heights, Michigan so we made a hometown connection.  The have beautiful fabrics and sample quilts on display.  She particularly likes Batiks and she has one of the largest collections I’ve seen.  She also pointed out the quilt behind the cash register made by one of her employees. It is an award-winner:  you can see why when you look at the picture I took, just beautiful!  Put Kathy’s shop on your list if you’re visiting the area this Winter.
