Miss me everyone? I’m back from Hawaii! Official vacation photos to come, but for now I’m going to share my lightbulb idea I got during my trip.
On my last few days in Oahu, I went to Fabric Mart. It’s a HUGE fabric store in Honolulu that sells Hawaiian fabric at wholesale prices. Most of the stuff is about $5/yard. Lets just say I walked in, nearly died in fabric heaven, and walked out with 24 yards of fabric (yes Cousin, I got you some too).
Here’s some photos so you can live through me…
Anyway, so I realized how sad it was that I would rather go fabric shopping than go to the beach AGAIN. Mostly because I had gone to the beach so many times in 10 days that I was too tan. AND, I had a ton of bug bites on my beautiful legs, so I didn’t really want to show them off…
I decided that I want to put together a list of everyone’s favorite fabric stores. Not online ones, but ones that we go to in person. Local brick and mortar stores. I’ll compile the list here on my blog, so please please please if you have a great fabric store (or multiple ones!) in your area that you love to go to email me at amatricisATyahooDOTcom with the following information:
1) Store name, address, and website (if it has one)
2) Types of fabric the store sells (e.g. if it’s your one stop shop to get Alexander Henry, or batiks, etc)
3) Why you love it
4) Your name/blog/flickr link
Hopefully we can all use this list for when we go on summer vacations! Please pass this along through your blogs/message boards. The more the merrier!
