Being a quilter in Central Oregon is heaven! We have 9 shops all within a 45 minute drive and they all have their own appeal. And now, I have added Portland to my quilting life! I will be sharing my shopping, my projects, my mistakes, my successes...all things quilt!...so come join me in my world of quilting, books, movies and restaurants!
It is the love of fabric that drives us to seek out fabric stores where ever we travel. I may have been a little out of my element in Britex. 4 stories of all things sewing...can you imagine an entire floor of notions! The few customers that were there on a Saturday morning with me were designer types. Stylish with that haughty look. Even the sales clerks seemed like they were styling...and the look on their faces when I told them I was looking for wool that I might felt! Sacre Bleu!!!
What is truly amazing is that this store and the needle point store in the slide show have been around since I was a youngster! When I was a kid my parents would take us to SF and we'd have the run of the town...anywhere you could walk or take a bus. I visited Golden Gate park annually...and going to China Town, walking around eating roast duck that had moments before hung in the window. I attended numerous symphony performances, operas (my mom's favorite) and of course the Ice Capades! It is a different town now. Although I felt safe enough on my own during the day...night is another story.
Enjoy the slide show...there is nothing better on a sunny day than San Francisco...except for Portland! lol
