loss of specialty shops…don’t like it
I know that ‘neighborhood’ fabric shops have been closing for years, but I can’t even find a brick and mortar store that carries decent lace. Remember, this is for doll clothes so I’m talking small, but still. JoAnn’s, Walmart, and Ben Franklin are near me but they cater to quilting and carry the same fabrics, and it seems the same laces, just different pricing.
I know I can order online, but I like to look up close and feel which is stiff and which is soft, and see detail and shade and construction, and you don’t get that online.
What happened? Do you think it will ever come back? I feel so sad for us.
