Today I met up with some former weaver friends and a new 'friend', Jackie! to head to the Fabric Art Shop!
This is Jackie, Jan, Betty and I all spent out after shopping!! Yes, those are purple bags and yes, the building and much of the inside is in purple! This was right up Jan's alley as she is known as The Queen of Purple! Need I say more!
The Fabric Art Shop is such a cool place! I've only been there once before in 2010 ( you can read that post here) and I thought it was a great store then. I'm more impressed now since they moved to a larger building...which means more product!
Really, we were all a little overwhelmed so we each grabbed a basket, put a few items in our baskets and told the cashier we'd be back!
Then off to lunch we went! After getting refreshed with a great meal and conversation, we went back to the store and started scanning every aisle. This place is huge and I mean huge!!
|Betty & Jan are looking over some products...and the fabric you seen behind them is only one side of three or four aisles of fabric!!!|
|Jan said she was in the Witness Protection program and I couldn't take her picture...I don't think the mob reads my blog so Jan should be safe! Besides, Betty's already turned you in - she can be bought - see that smile on her face!|
|Just more threads, buttons...you name it! They have every type of thread you want!!! I was in heaven!|
Now the old store had a great bathroom in purple and green..you can see pics on my old post...and this new bathroom is also in purple and green but it's missing this door!!! They didn't bring the door with them! Too bad! It was great! Is this adorable or what!!!
I have to admit, one of the cute items in the new store bathroom is the toilet tissue rolls are all wrapped in tissue paper!!
Yes, I take pics of bathrooms...just check out my blog and you'll see quite a few pics of them!
These are just a few items I purchased today. I know my friends back home would love this store...they have everything you want for traditional, modern and art quilting...in addition to beading, dyes, paints, whatever!! I picked up some Jacquard paints and the new pigment powders I've been wanting to try. It's probably good this store is in Florida or I'd be shopping every week or two back home!!!
I did have a blast today and sure hope the four of us can get together again before we head north! Thanks for a great day Betty, Jan and Jackie!!!! You all rock!
