Stop #2 Patchwork Pig...

Hmm what can I say about this shop....adorable...adorable pigs...just adorable...
Here is DD1 again modeling with the fabrics...she loves to be in the fabric pictures..
They had so many styles here, batiks, 1930's reproductions, civil war, Thimbleberries, Moda Marbles, coordinates, Kaffe Fassett and on and on. There were so many books and patterns that I couldn't look through them all. They also have a large sale area of $4.99 a yard fabrics including Kaffe fabrics. I didn't get any as I don't need any to finish a project. I missed a lot in this shop and I am sure I will find more if I get another chance to look around.
I love their fabric covered letters. One thing they didn't have a lot of, was samples...I was kind of disappointed by that, because they had SO much of everything else.
Here is my meager purchase there....variagated Mettler thread, silk pins and one yard of a Thimbleberries fabric to finish a table topper.
We did stop at one other place called the Fabric Warehouse. It was not too appealing for pictures so I didn't take any...I did buy a yard of fabric covered with vinyl Moda Strawberry Lemonade for DD2's bibs and a splat mat. Now we did go to JoAnn's and Barnes and Noble the next day and I found a few good items there. Some fabric, great after Easter deals, and some new amigurumi books and felt softie books, I hope to show that stuff soon.
