This morning, Kirsten, Tracy, and I went to the Phoenix Quilt, Craft, and Sewing Festival at the Arizona State Fair Grounds. And let me tell ya… it was like product overload. If you wanted it, you could find it. And you left with stuff you didn’t know you wanted in the first place.
A new-to-me booth and fabric shop was Above All Fabric. Based in Tucson, they made the drive North to let me buy some of their fabulous fabric. That is my Henna Garden 1/2 yard getting cut there… (I usually only buy in 1/2 yard increments. I’m odd like that.) And trust me, with the three of us in their booth, we (meaning the K&T team) did serious damage to their inventory ;)
But you know what makes this shop awesome, besides their $5 shipping on purchases? The shop owner, Melanie. With a name like that, she had to be pretty darn cool. Yup. You should have seen the awesome pleated skirt she was wearing made from some of the fabulous fabric finds at her shop! Check out the blog for fun ideas and deals.
We made a pretty good team maneuvering out way through the crowds with two strollers. Both kiddos are mine, Kirsten’s cute kid was home sick with a sick dad. Oh, the sacrifices we make for fabric buying opportunities!
Seriously, I was worn out when were done (I’m not going to suggest it was more due to the fact that I went to bed at 5:00 this morning. It was a good book, okay???) and so were other members of our crew.
Overall, I restricted my spending very well, but my wish-list has grown to absurd amounts. I will be starting some more projects soon, though! Can’t wait…
