Grieving a Local Quilt Shop
Readers, we all love Quilter’s Mart. Amiright?! We’ve got you covered here at good ole QM. But today we’re going to talk about your favorite local brick and mortar quilt shops. Or actually - correction - we’re going to talk about one of mine.I’m sure you all will understand when I say that there are certain fabric stores that you walk into and you just feel at home. You immediately feel inspired, and there are a million things you could turn into a project just glancing around. And when you’re starting a new quilt, you think of that special place right away.
But alas, Fabric Depot went the way of so many local shops. Now, when I begin a new project and need to go see and feel fabrics in-person, I find myself without a brick and mortar quilting home! Has anyone else gone through this? I feel a bit adrift in my quilting creativity without my trusty local store!
So, my dear friends, in addition to your Quilter’s Mart patronage, please don’t forget to support local quilt shops! And please, tell us about your personal favorite shops in the comments below!
