{Tour The Shoppe Tuesday}

Lately I have been covering the left side of the store as you enter in the shoppe doors.

I am going to do things a little different tonight.
I want to look to the right this time.

The majority of this section if full of wovens.
Don't get me wrong it does have a little splash of different fabrics.

For instance:

Some cottons consisting of "Looking Back" & "Blessings"

It's also packed with a little bit of wilderness/winter flannels{Creekside Flannel} or{Let It Snow}

There is also the super SOFT & cuddly Woolies Flannel.

And I can't forget the wonderful Sweetwater lines. Remember the super adorable "Pure" line full of blue & browns for little boys?!??! Same line!

There is also the spot where you can find all the buggy barn books...

Excluding a few others, the whole corner of the store is pretty much full of woven fabric.

Lots & lots of it!

And I mean A.L.O.T.
More to choose from I say!

But a big thing I want to point out is this little corner here:

Looks like a wall of patterns right?!??!

Well, it's a very important wall of patterns.
You see, all those patterns you see there is where you will look if you see a store sample and want the pattern for it! All in one spot. Wonderful!

Well, if you turn around, there's some there too :) LOTS of store samples = Lots of patterns!

I hope you are all planning a little trip Thurs/Fri/Sat for the big sale!

{Tour The Shoppe Tuesday}

Week I
Week II
Week III
Week IV

So the first few weeks of the tour was more 'row by row'. This week is a little different.
This week there are alot of rows I am covering.

Six to be exact.

Hope I don't lose ya ;)
Before I show you the pictures, I have to apologies for the over exposed pictures. I had changed my settings recently on my camera and forgot to fix them when I took these pictures! Oops!

I am still on the left side of the store, but to get a better picture of all the aisles, I am standing on the end of the rows.

Love all my red arrows?!??! I think I got a little red arrow happy!

This row is mostly filled with "Scenic" fabric. Tons of flowers. But the cool thing you can find is nature too! If you are making a quilt and need a fabric that look like it! See second pic....

Cool huh?!?!?

Row Two::
Enter the start of Civil War.

Row Three::
Civil War & Patriotic

Row Four::
Buggy Barn Fabrics

Row Five::
Seasonal-Fall, Halloween
On the other side of the aisle you will also find the western section & a section full of roosters! :)

Row Six::
All of our Benartex fabrics & our wall of kits.

See all those Pattern books hanging up at the end of the aisle??? That is where all of our Art to Heart books are kept.
I may have mentioned a time or two about our kits to some of our quilt samples. Well, if the kit isn't by the sample hanging up, you will most likely find it here!

Back Wall::
To end up this little (okay, big) section of the store there has to be a wall. In the shoppe's case it's a big wall (HUGE!).
Here you will find our Thimbleberries Collection.

You will also find some Japanese prints and our black & white & red section.

This ends today's tour, don't worry-we aren't done with this side of the store. Yet.

I know, there's more?!?!?!??! Oh, we have only put in a dent to the fabulous-ness of this shoppe!
