I love finding the little ole independently owned fabric shops when I travel. A few weeks ago I went to Austin, Tx for a work conference and this time was no different. If we want our community to thrive, we must support each other!
First up, was The Cloth Pocket. They had the best lighting due to the front of the store being completely windows. Perfect for viewing all the fabrics!
They also have a really fun logo on their window. In this photo they have their blinds down due to the crazy intense sun!
They don’t have a ton of fabric but they offered a variety of fun prints, some knits, and of course notions.
Best of all, they have an amazing classroom space! I didn’t get to take a class but their website offers quilting, alterations, and apparel sewing classes! They teach sewing with knits and wovens! They even offer the option to rent a sewing machine!! Check out there classes here: https://theclothpocket.com/collections
I picked up some Boston terrier canvas, a dinosaur print and a wolf quilt pattern! I am so excited to sew something up with them.
Juliet helped me and we chatted about fabric and sewing and how great the community is. If you get a chance definitely check out the cloth pocket!
Later in the week, from Juliet’s suggestion I checked out Me and Ewe! Such a cute name for a little sewing and yarn shop! It sat nestled back behind a realtor In a neighborhood. They had a super cute space where I automatically felt at home.
I ended up picking up some art gallery fabric that I made into some lander shorts! You’ll see those tomorrow on the blog!
I hope that if you are in the Austin area you’ll check out one of these shops!
Happy sewing friends!!
