Fabric Fieldtrip: Sewtropolis (& last day to enter giveaway!)

This week while the boys were at VBS, I snuck off to see Nikol at Sewtropolis.  Nikol, the owner of Sewtropolis & Marie started the Minneapolis Modern Quilt Guild and most months we meet at Sewtropolis.  Sewtropolis is a sewing studio in south Minneapolis. 

Yesterday when I went in I found this shelf of Joel Dewberry's line in front.

There is a large display of Aurifil thread.

There is a large selection of patterns...

And even more patterns! Many of these and the store's fabric are sold on Sewtropolis' Etsy site.

Here's a shelf of Amy Butler fabrics.

Tula Pink's Prince Charming line of fabric...

A nice selection of voiles...perfect for the hot summer everyone seems to be having.

Various solids...

And lots of laminated cottons, too!

So what's missing? I totally forgot to take photos of the studio sewing space!  Check out Sewtropolis' website and blog to see more photos and learn about their classes.  They offer a wide variety of classes including general how to classes, quilting, homegoods, sewing for baby, apparel classes and even kids sewing camps. 

In case you hadn't figured it out, I am highly distractable.  Yesterday when I stopped by, Vanessa was there too and the three of us were talking about some of the guild challenges included the Habitat challenge and the Kona Solids challenge... and my mind was going in so many directions I spaced out photos of the studio area.  Guess that means those of you that live nearby will have to just go check it out yourself!

And today is the last day to enter my blogiversary giveaway... go here if you want to enter!
