I feel like I just found the end of the rainbow...

At the doctor's office this morning I was talking quilting, what else, with one of his staff, and she told me about a quilt shop just a mile away. This shop does most of its business on-line, but is also open for retail. I had never heard of it. Well, of course, I had to stop in (work can wait for another 15 minutes).

Oh, my gosh. It was fantastic! I love Asian fabrics, and there were hundreds of beautiful patterns. And batiks - wall after wall of fabric bolts. A whole rack of "food" patterns. And on and on. I was blown away. I can't imagine having this resource so close to home - only 20 minutes - it's actually the closest shop to me.

Their on-line address (which many of you might already have) is www.mybluebamboo.com . I can't wait to go there to actually shop. I need fabric for my baby turtle quilt pattern that I bought in Hawaii. I have no connection with this shop and I can't recommend them as to their on-line service, etc., because I have no experience with them, but I can say that their fabrics are wonderful.

Better get back to work, but I wanted to let you all know.

Wow, how cool Lois! I've been on their website many times through the FabShop Hops.

Have fun!

I know just how you feel. I felt the same way when the new quilt shop opened up around the block from me last month. I'm still so excited, I offered to work for her...very part time...if she ever needed any help. It actually sounds like she might call.

What an awesome find! And to have it so close, too. What a nice surprise.
