fabric souvenir shopping in pennsylvania
This weekend my family took a VERY brief road trip to Pennsylvania. We stopped in Amish country, I ate an incredible chicken cheese steak, and visited Valley Forge. I'm a huge fan of the time of the revolution, so being in this part of the country that is so rich history was so good.
But these days I can't take a trip without at least trying to drop into a fabric store. This is the souvenir shopping I like to do.
I actually got to go to two fabric stores, and there were more in the area. This is the benefit of driving a little out of your way to Amish country. We were planning on going closer to Lancaster, but ending up stopping in Intercourse, PA (we'll avoid the jokes).
Zook's Fabric Store (Sauders online) was where I bought my souvenir stack. The store is in a house and they have a huge selection. And amazing prices.
It was the Kona solids that really called my name. They were all $5.49-$5.99 a yard!
I chose a rainbow of fabrics because I couldn't just select one or two.
And I may have found a few others too. No specific plans for any of these yet, but I mean...squirrels!
Because I often attach memories to items, when I pull these fabrics out to use them, I'll remember that they came from this trip. Which also means that as I use them I'll be stitching memories into whatever I'm making. And I love that.
Again, do check out Zook's/Sauders online or on your next trip to Pennsylvania!
