Fabric Shopping in Austin

Yes, you read that right. There is now some serious, quality fabric shopping in Austin, Texas.
Mom and I spent the afternoon on Thursday making the rounds to our favorite stores: Sew Much More, The Common Thread and TexStyles.
We hit Sew Much More for the great sale. I ordered a bias binder, Mom got a part she needed for her Elna, a Chalkoner, and we each bought a rolling cart of drawers so I could better organize all my trims.

Our first fabric stop was The Common Thread on South Lamar.
Jeannie has a great selection of quality fabrics--silks, bamboo/lycra knits, quality flannels, organic cotton blends.

Mom picked up an abstract print rayon/lycra jersey, a cotton peacock print from the Victoria & Albert Museum and a GORGEOUS Valentino print on silk charmeuse.

The makeup bag I made for Mom with the peacock fabric. I monogrammed the "S".

The fun flannel print I picked up for a new pair of pajamas.

If you're in the need of some gorgeous fabrics, real petersham, or Russian/French veil, stop by and visit Jeannie. She can also order lots of fabrics if she doesn't have exactly what you are looking for.

Happy Sewing!
