Fabric Fieldtrip: Treadle Yard Goods


While my boys were at their classes at the Science Museum of Minnesota last week, I visited Treadle Yard Goods on historic Grand Avenue in St. Paul.  The store has broad variety of fabrics to choose from.

Treadle had a nice selection of Anna Maria Horner prints.



Also Amy Butler fabrics, too.



Here is their selection of Japanese imports...there aren't too many stores in the cities that carry many of these fabrics. (above in the background is part of their Kona cotton and Kaufman quilters linens)




And like my last visit, they have a large variety of oilcloth fabrics by front door to draw passersby in.




This time I took particular notice to the large variety of novelty flannels that they carried.



Check out this ribbon selection, it is nearly impossible to walk by and not touch or purchase something from this display.



In addition to all the quilting fabrics, Treadle also has quite a few apparel fabrics... here are their linens.


Again, I forgot to take photos of the pattern and notion areas but I do think those are geared more towards apparel sewing at this store..but no matter there is certainly plenty of other temptations for the quilter!

I want that store by me!!!!! We are lucky enough to have a couple of nice quilting shops within our area. One is more traditional and the other is definitely the more art typw quilting. They have fabulous classes at both, but I especially love the ones at the second one.

I have to get my hands on that green fabric with the white tree. Now this is what I call eye candy!

Wish we had a fabric store like this near where I live. It looks like you could spend hours in there! It would be hard to pick just one piece of fabric...lol...Love the looks of this store for sure!!
