Yesterday I took my kids to the Minnesota History Center for the day... And, like any good quilting mom, I decided while we were in St. Paul, we should check out the nearest fabric shop.
Treadle Yard Goods is located on historic Grand Avenue. They carry quilting and apparel fabrics, patterns & notions. The store has a very urban hip feel to it.
Near the entry they have a huge selection of oilcloth.
I also found the first selection of Kokka/Japanese imports that I have seen in Minnesota, at least since I've known what they are.
Additionally, Treadle has a huge Amy Butler inventory, Joel Dewberry and a lot of Alexander Henry fabrics.
So what did I get? I certainly showed more restraint than on previous visits, so that was good for the wallet. Lately, I have been drawn to owls so I got a small piece of a Kokka owl print and then a larger piece of this Alexander Henry large scale strawberry print that was in the sale corner.
And if you live in the area and shop with children as I do, you might like to know they have a toy corner and there is a Kowalski's (upscale grocer)a few blocks away for a snack for the kiddos on the trip home.
So where was your latest or favorite fabric fieldtrip?
