This weekend Barbara and I cruised on down the I-15 to St. George to visit the Superior Threads Warehouse. They were having a Thanksgiving Sale and it doesn't take much more than that to count me in. I was delighted to find, that upstairs from the warehouse is a fabric shop.
Oh my, I just love it when stores put bolts in color order. They just look so pretty. Pinks and purples.
So many blues . . .
And oh, the blacks and whites!!!
Then I found the shelves of Riley Blake and Moda. This is where the fabric petting really began. And after drolling for some time, we finally headed downstairs to check out the thread, you know, since that was the reason for the trip :)
Now wharehouse pictures aren't all that fun for looks, but Oh how I wish I could show how many aisles stacked with thread were there. Rows and rows and rows!!!
Superior Threads has so many choices of thread and the folks there were so helpful. It can be a little overwhelming for newbies like us and so their assistance was so great! We have been having problems with some shredding of a certain thread and after chatting for about 2 minutes came to find out that we were using the wrong size needle for it. Learn something new every day :)
In the end, we left with a ton of spools, all in wonderful creamy neutral colors. (That is really what we needed). But the spools are down at Barbara's and I forgot to take a picture. Sorry :)
All in all, it was a super fun little trip!!! And smoothies for the trip home was the perfect finish :)
I am hoping to finish up a quilt back so I can get down on the long arm today and use some of those new creamy neutrals :) Do you have any quilting plans for today??
