“Would you like to have a look through this?”, Christine asked me as she handed over her Hancock’s catalogue. No time to read it at work, so she suggested I take it home to look through it at my leisure. Christine is a good overseas customer and often places orders with this company.
So Hancock’s came home with me and I spent a happy half hour flicking through the many colourful pages. There was everything from Halloween fabrics, Japanese designs, lovely florals of every hue, black and whites, Civil War reproductions, French country, Americana and Christmas designs. My favourites would have to be all those beautiful Hoffman Batiks.
Perhaps one day I just might make it to Paducah, to see the American Quilter's Society Annual Quilt Show. Then I could stop off and visit Hancock’s as well. However, I would probably be overwhelmed with so much choice and wouldn’t be able to decide what to buy. I could just imagine it – shall I have some of this, or this, or what about that one? I’m sad to say that this has happened to me before when I’ve been in a quilt fabric shop overseas, I am such a procrastinator. Perhaps I’ll just make do with looking through the catalogue. As I won’t be buying anything, I won’t have the agony of making any choices. Oh, I feel better already!
