I was finally able to live out a dream today. Now that I live in LA, I got to visit Sew Modern. It was a modern quilter’s paradise and if you are ever in the LA area, you must stop in! I audibly gasped and very nearly fainted when I walked in the door. Inside, it holds all the modern, designer, fabrics that I could only oogle online when I lived in NorCal.
(As a disclaimer: this is REALLY how I feel. Just like all my blog posts, I was not compensated or even asked to write this. I like to keep it real, that way!)
I am going to be ALL OVER the longarm machine in the back of the shop. You can rent it hourly, or take a class (yes, please!).
I’m on a total fabric freeze right now, but I couldn’t drive the whole way there without buying SOMETHING, right? I honestly could have taken a yard of each fabric in the store, but I decided to focus on text prints. I’ve had a major obsession with them lately, so this pretty little stack quenched my fabric thirst. I also picked up the Amy Butler Weekender Travel Bag pattern for a future project and some Best Press, so I could see what all the hubbub is about.
Thankfully, Sew Modern is still quite a drive for me, so that may help my purse a bit. The LAMQG meets there each month, so I know I’ll be back often!
