In the course of our normal work as a fabric company, one of our great pleasures is to visit quilt shops across the country. We show our fabric and hope to get sales but we also get to spend time with the owners and staff and share in their passion and joy of teaching, quilting and running a fabric store.
Most of the shops across the country are located in normal shopping centers and it never ceases to amaze me how the store owners transform the cookie cutter shop into a warm and inviting sanctuary for crafting. Todays post is about a store that is a bit different and is blessed with a location and building that is something special!
The building was part of a complex built in the 1900′s and was used as a cafe and a place to show silent movies. The whole complex has been lovingly restored and now houses a restaurant, theatre, arts and textile center.
My good friend Andrea Meegan is running the shop and brings many years of experience as a quilter, teacher, pattern and fabric designer and is also just a super great person! You can see Andrea here speaking to Terri in the classroom setting, each cubbyhole showcases a class/project that the store offers.
Here is another view of the project wall.
Upon entering the store you are greeted by the high wall of fabric, complete with moving ladder like the old fashioned libraries.
You also have a nice sitting area complete with wood stove.
Look at the beautiful color wall!
High ceilings, original woodwork from the early 1900′s, restored to perfection-loads of fabric and notions!
Just an amazing store, just opened recently. If your travels take you to the Texas Hill Country, spend some time and visit this must see destination shop!
