Sewing & Fabric | Everything is Bigger in Texas

Posted by Laura Kelly on Mon, Jun 25, 2012 @ 08:57 AM

Believe it or not, Miss Julia and I are wrapping up our 3rd and final week of Summer Camp in Dallas.  It has gone by so fast! Just 5 more days of patterns, pins and pajama pants for me here in Texas, and then it’s northward ho! I must say though that Texas has been great to us, and we will miss it.  Not only are the people kind, the campers enthusiastic and the food scrumptious, but this state certainly does have its fair share of fabric stores too!

This past week my fellow Machine Sewing instructor Miss Sophia treated me to a trip to her favorite fabric warehouse – that’s right, WAREHOUSE that is chock full fabrics and textile delights.  It is called Super Textiles and has millions of yards of fabric and just as many buttons!  I was ecstatic, and managed to control myself when I was there…I only bought 12 ½ yards of fabric! Sheepy wandered off while we were there, and I eventually found him purchasing buttons (they were really tiny ones).  I hope that on our travels back up north we find more great fabric stores.  Although with everything that Sheepy purchased, I am not sure if we’ll have any room in our van…
