Hi Ladies (?) I’m new.
I live near Kansas City, Mo. We have lost our very fine independent fabric store, Cy Rudnicks, due to retirment. Autumn sewing approacheth. What is a girl to do? Chain fabric stores that cater to Crafts and boring synthetics don’t satisfy my needs or really even interest me! I know this sounds ‘elitist’, but when I spend my time sewing, I want the result to be better clothes that I can afford to buy off the rack.
I have bought some yardages on line. Some I have loved, Others, well, when you can’t see the colors, feel the fabric, and smell the goods to see if they have been finished with intolerable chemicals, well let’s just say MISTAKES have been made. Sad, sorry, expensive, mistakes.
My sister, niece, daughter and I go for a “Girl’s week-end” of teas, spa visits, ladies lunches and room-service every August. This year Denver! I had the bright idea that maybe we could do some Autumn fabric shopping at the same time. I went on line and was dissapointed to find few fabric shops within walking distance of our Denver Hotel. Even “Denver Fabrics”, seems to be in another town.
My question to my new Threads e-friends is: Where would you suggest would be a good place for a “Girl’s Week-end” that might also include fabric shopping? Surely, you know of some wonderful city with an airport, a nice hotel with in-house spa and room service, with-in walking distance or a short taxi ride from some fabulous independent fabric store!
We usually go in August, we could adjust to March. Thanks, Gail Ann
