I finally found the new location of a sweet boutique-The Sewing Party. It is now located off Ridge Route on Ridge Route ( how's that for confusing ) near the back of a little industrial center. The boring facade does not prepare you for the wonderful treats inside. Love of fabric and all its potential is what I take from this store. Fabric is grouped by textile designers or descriptions like 'shabby' or 'contemporary'. This makes it easy for their target customers of quilters to find the multiple mix of fabrics necessary to complete a quilt. NO emphasis on garments here-it is all about pillows, quilts and purses. But, alot of these techniques can easily be applied to clothing and nice fabric is nice fabric. Prices run from $9 up to $10.50 a yard with a back sale wall of $4.50 per yard.
The fabric here is absolutely beautiful ( do I say that about EVERY store? I just adore fabric ). And while you won't find zippers and thread and buttons and garment patterns you WILL find examples of wildly wonderful pillows, Japanese embroidery, and lots of creative class offerings.
