shopper alert

I took a day off from work today and ran errands, and managed a stop at the local fabric store.  Want to see what I found?


I should have bought some of that pom-pom trim.  For what? Lamp-shade decorations?
But I think pom-poms might be cheerful.

It is February, after all.
Happy Weekend!

  3. I was able to view it and enjoyed it. Thanks for posting. Fun to see how you shop. And I'm jealous you have G Street to visit! I'll watch to see what you do with fold-over elastic.

  4. "that'll be good for something"... I think that's how my stash (and many others I suspect) started! I laughed when you said that. That looks like a fabulous shop .. and sounds really cheap too.

  5. I restarted firefox and was able to see it!

    Wow, how fun! What did you buy that was over $20 per yard? What fabric store did you visit? Anyway, it was a hoot to virtual shop with you. :)

  6. My partner was sitting next to me when I watched your video and he said "so that is what goes through your head when you walk around these stores" I told him all sorts of things go through my head.

    Looks a great store

  9. Thanks for doing the vid. I'm so jealous of your proximity to such a fabulous store. There is one fabric store near me that isn't a Joanne or Hancocks and it doesn't have much that is under $30 a yard. Thanks for the vicarious thrill :)

  10. Loved your video and had no problems watching. It was great to put a voice to the face. I haven't been to G Street in years but it looks much the same, an amazing selection of everything.

  11. I didn't have a problem watching (using Google Chrome as my browser and I've got a PC if that helps). Very fun! I'm with Shams...what was $20 per yard? It was nice to put a voice to the face. I thoroughly enjoy your blog! I'm of to my own sewing emporium (Fabricland) today as there's a sale and I need to buy some supplies for my classroom (teach Fashion Studies to high school and jr. high students). It's fun to shop with someone else's money, but I get to do all the looking I want.
    Happy sewing

  13. I enjoyed the video! Were you shopping with one hand and holding a camera with the other? Maybe you should adopt the cyclists' trick of mounting a camera in your helmet. What, doesn't everyone wear a helmet shopping?

  14. Enjoyed the video! It has been a long time since I have been to G-Street. Your shopping video reminded me I need to go soon!

  15. Oh Robin, this was so much fun. I loved to see the shop and I loved it so much more that you behave just like I do when I enter a fabric shop! I always love discovering new stuff and end up with things I need for other projects. Pity that shop is nowhere near where I live. I would have loved to go.
    Thanks for the video and it was nice to hear your voice.

  19. shams, the trim for $27.95 per yard was the hook and eye closure. gulp! I will be using it on the black cardigan, and I only needed a quarter yard.
