Saturday Stash: A New Shop!

I love it when a new quilt/yarn shop opens nearby! Today is the grand opening of "Fabric Bliss -- the Colorado Springs Edition."

The original Fabric Bliss is located in the Denver Santa Fe arts district. In keeping with their "artsy" roots, the Colorado Springs Fabric Bliss is located in the West Side of Colorado Springs, where there are many art galleries, artsy shops and great restaurants.

The Dishcloth Diva, Deb Buckingham, and I were at the shop minutes after they opened for the first time on Tuesday.

Look! Modern fabric on the right-hand side of the shop! You know how I love a shop that has fabric I haven't seen anywhere else.

And yarn on the left! Madelinetosh, Pigeonroof, Shibui, Dream in Color, Cascade, Abuelita, and Lion Brand. (Plus, a sock knitting class with the Dishcloth Diva herself!)

I bought yarn for My Little Sailor's next birthday sweater. (It's a surprise, so no photos!) 

Sharon (L) rings up Deb's purchase of a lovely Abuelita hand-dye to make a sample for Deb's next book!

In Colorado Springs, Fabric Bliss is located at 2616 W. Colorado Ave, Suite 21. Hours: Tuesday - Saturday: 11a - 7p, Sunday: 12p - 6p Monday: Closed. Phone: 719.646.2370

I finished piecing my next Scrap Squad quilt today -- quilting, binding and blogging tomorrow for Quilty Pleasures blog!
