I can't believe it has been over two weeks since my last post, but with work and travel, my time has been short. Anyway, I wanted to share with you two quilt shops I visited while in the North Bay area of California.
Let's start with the Quilted Angel in Pelatuma, Ca.
You will note that at the bottom of this rack with the Superior Thread, that they also carry some YLI Silks. That's right, in quite a wide range of colors.... and no this is not all the thread, they had more racks than I got on camera.
I quess it is only fitting, because not only do they carry silk thread, but they also carry silk batting (which I just had to buy to try) and a delicious array of a silk/cotton blend fabric.
They also carried wool, cotton, and polyester batting. And you could buy it pre-packaged or off the roll. And if you need a ruler, believe me they had it. I have never seem so many types of rulers. But as I said, they had just about everything in this shop.
Oh boy, oh boy... got to finish my 15 month UFO so I can play with those silks.
Oh yeah, the folks at the shop were great... real friendly. And you could tell that the locals just hang out there. When I entered there were a few ladies just chatting away about the local school system. In the back, they have a kids area, with a TV and video games and toys and such to keep the young ones occupied as their Moms shopped or chatted.
I'll share the other shops with you next time.
