communingwithfabric when she visited me from the West Coast in April. One of the many high points of that visit was when we drove to the famous Fabric Mart, along with Carolyn( sewingfantaticdiary) and Noile (noile.net). It was a very special time for me and I really missed them all when I made my first trip since then back to Fabric Mart today, though not enough to keep me from buying enough fabric for all of us! The owner Robert remembered our group well and said to say HI--he also mentioned that after they blogged about his linen knit it sold out quickly----BLOGGERS have POWER!
FM started a special sale this week that they have for in-store customers only (might be worth making a trip to Pennsylvania for). They have a whole front room full of fabrics on round tables (which they call "the rounds"), some of which have been on-line and some of which haven't, either because they didn't have enough to sell it on the web or didn't think it would show nicely when photographed. Anyway, there is some seriously good stuff there and it's always at pretty good prices BUT from now til June 17 it's 50% off that already low price. Do you wonder why I stocked up??
I wore the top that I made from their fabrics that I entered in their Julie's Picks Contest:
I'll be blogging soon about the new fabrics I bought today and my plans for them. Til then keep on sewing!
