This week the bikes have been rolling through Iowa on an annual event called RAGBRAI. It started in 1973 by 2 guys who invited friends to ride along for 6 days across Iowa from west to east. It is now 7 days of riding, averaging 472 miles and attracts participants from all 50 states and many foreign countries.
Yes- there are quilters who participate! In fact we heard there were lots of biking visitors to Prairie Star Quilts in Elk Horn Tuesday when they rolled through. Here’s a typical summer day photo of Julie’s shop.
And here’s a photo in front of that shop on Tuesday!
Enjoy your summer and don’t forget to download our Quilt Shop Locator app so you can check out the quilt shops as you roll by to your favorite vacations spot!
