Me, I've been to Fabric Mart before so I knew the treasures that were waiting for us to behold! Still I didn't take into account that we would be dragging luscious fabrics that had just come off the truck to the cutting table...or taking a trip into "The Basement" that housed wholesale heaven...or even that everything on their website would be a touch away...so I went a little B-I-T C-R-A-Z-Y!
Yeap, that was me standing in the middle of Fabric Mart transferring money from my savings to my checking account on my iPad as my friends cheered me on!!! So do you wanna see what the fabric piggy bought home with her???
(l-r: silk blk/grey/white voile, white sheer silk crepe, beige striped silk faile
brown woven silk, beige floral woven silk, brown sandwashed nylon
and a chambray silk shantung)
(a grey wool sateen, a silk/wool herringbone, a black wool sateen
a salt & pepper wool blend boucle)
and of course the linen jerseys:
Most of my silks were purchased from the table that was in the front of the store for $4 a yard...yeah, I know, right? Most of my wools are from the Jones NY offerings that Fabric Mart has an abundance of...but what struck me the most was the friendliness of the staff at Fabric Mart. From the owner, Robert coming out and taking a picture with Sharon (notice the glee on her face!)...
To everyone who stopped to say hi, get their picture taken with Sharon or who asked us, "What we could do to make shopping with Fabric Mart even better?!" This was a fabricaholic's dream trip!
Sharon and I started calling each other Sister Wife because we both were saying how much we L-O-V-E Fabric Mart! And tho' she says that she loves them more...just know that I've loved them longer and deeper than she could evah imagine! *LOL*
It was the perfect way to spend an afternoon! Great fabric in a great fabric store with a great fabric store staff and most of all GREAT friends...it was the perfect MasterCard moment! I know cause mine caught fire shortly after we left the store! *LOL*
