I’m so excited I could burst – I had a dream come true! My ideal fabric store, Sewn Studios, opened its doors in February.

I love to make my own clothes but I haven’t had any fabulous fabric inspiration since St. Theresa’s Textile Trove bailed on Cincinnati’s Over-the-Rhine neighborhood a few years ago. Sewn Studios has all the glorious fabrics by the designers I particularly adore AND interesting sewing patterns – a whole new experience for me!! Oh, I’ve taped together patterns printed from BurdaStyle, I’ve eyed patterns at the Amy Butler site and bought a few from Purl Soho (which I love!) but I hated to pay shipping for a sewing pattern that I might not ultimately like once I held it in my hands.
Shopping local really IS so much better! Right here in my town, in my hands, next door to one of my fav coffeeshops, Red Tree, is a great fabric store. This is good living. This is EXCITING. Did I say that before?
