As you know I am on "staycation" this week and have gotten some sewing in as I had hoped. Yesterday I decided to go to Floyd, VA. This is a laid back community, home of Blue Grass and clogging, farming and even hippies. There is an old schoolhouse that was converted into a fabric store with apparel, home dec and quilting fabrics. How long has this store existed, I don't know. When I moved to this area over 10 years ago, I was told I needed to go there. They also have a great selection of buttons, fabric trims, patterns, sewing related books and magazines. It is about an hour away from where I live and I decided I was going there as I had not been in a couple of years.
Fabric selection is usually varied and you never know what you are going to find. Yesterday I found quite a bit that needed a new home. I will say they have a large selection of lining fabric in various colors and I have quite a few in my stash and only picked up three colors this time around.
Here is a photo of my fabric haul
