Some fabric sources in the Atlanta area

Our meeting today included some interesting resources for fabric, including Bella Fabric and More (Alpharetta, next to JoAnn's) and Fabric World (Stone Mountain).

Bella Fabric offers online, as well as bricks-and-mortar shopping:
Bella Fabric & More
955 North Point Drive
Alpharetta, Ga 30022

Fabric World has evidently been around a while, and selection/quality is hit or miss. Every few months or so, they receive fabric from designers and other quality sources. The trick is to know when to go. Kay has agreed to notify her 30plus closest friends (guess who?) when this happens again. They are not online, but here is their address:
Fabric World
1555 E Park Place Blvd #C
Stone Mountain. GA 30087
770 413 7655

Intown Quilters
Also Kay asked me this morning where I purchased the fabric in one of my samples. It from the *Liberty* line from Michael Miller, a company that normally markets only quilting-weight fabrics. This is not your typical quilt cotton - it is similar to the gray floral Liberty of London I also showed - light, soft, perfect for hot summer time.

I purchased it at Intown Quilters, not at Discover Sewing as I had thought. I expect that other quilt stores carry this line from Michael Miller too, but Intown supports ASG and is just a fun store. They provide ASG members with a 10% discount.

Happy sewing!

Pam Howard's Shirt Class

Finished my shirt. The poplin fabric was a challenge, but I'm ready to try another!
