I've been to fabric heaven! Twice!

 The $2.50-$3 room.

 The $4 room with LOADS of Civil War reproduction fabrics.
 The $3 room.
 Another $3-$4 room.

Six rooms of fabric priced at $2.50-$4 a yard, 18 rooms of quilts, the sweetest little old man EVER, and all that fabric in the picture above for $208. That's 65 yards of fabric for $208. UNBELIEVABLE! The last time I went to see him was about three years ago. Ben and I went again a couple of weeks ago and then today I took my Mom, Mom-in-law, sis-in-law, and (other mama) Shell back for a ladies day out! We had so much fun! When Ben and I went I posted on Facebook that I had been and gave his address, then when we were there today I met a couple of ladies who had seen that post and went to visit him! YAY! If you are interested in taking a little trip to see him DO IT! Tell him that the pattern maker from Birmingham sent you! He is an elderly man who runs this out of his home, so if you plan a trip call first and make sure he will be there for the day. Here is his information:

Ooops, forgot to tell you which one I am...the one with dark hair that bought the beautiful white fabric for the baby outfit and blanket!! My name is Angie.

Angie, it was so nice to meet you too! I'm sorry I was so blood-red and shy for the first few minutes! LOL! One of these days I'm going to get over being so freakishly shy. One day.... :)

Hi, Samantha. I'm Judy-- the other lady. It was so fun to meet you and your family today. What a coincidence that we heard about this from your facebook post and then we all show up there on the same day. Take care.

Samantha Caffee said...

Judy, I know! How crazy is that?? It was so good to meet you two too!

xo,
Sam

I think I may feel a road trip coming on.

Samantha I am so envious of your choice of fabrics and yarn around your house - where I live in Australia there is little choice for either! I am tempted to try buying yarn online but I really like to feel it to make sure it's not "scratchy" I think I need a road trip to the earthy parts of my state to find anything crafty! I really enjoy reading your blog your family seems so lovely

last night I got a text from grand babe's mommy (otherwise known as my daughter) that said " Mother! Drop whatever you are doing and check The Handmade Dress's latest blog post!" My first thought was adoption related :-) I can't believe this! I live right down the road from Booneville. We are just down from the Brice's Crossroads Battlefield. I gotta check this out- Mimi's babes NEED new duds!
Thanks for the heads up!

I so agree with Claire. There's not a great deal of choice for great fabric and especially yarn here in Australia. I'm completely envious.

This brought back memories of going with my mom to "Mr. Edward's Garage" - a little old man in CA who ran a fabric shop out of his garage. That was 20 years ago. Thanks for the trip down Memory Lane!
