Hubby and I just got back from a mini vacay to Solvang. I was so excited that Buellton's Creation Station fabric shop is so close by. I had some special theme fabrics that I wanted to get for my oldest dd request for making mug rugs for her 4 bosses at Fire Dept. She wanted fire/flames/anything that would work. I was so shocked that the fabric shop had nothing in stock to fit our needs.
I love Creation Station. Have always found lots of stuff when they vendor at quilt shows. This was my first chance to see their brick/mortar store and it is cute and the fabric prices great at $6yd. But seemed their fabrics on hand were limited / small. I didn't ask, but guessing that the owner was vending at a quilt show and had taken lots of their stock with them.
A shock to me, I didn't spend a penny!
Tho I money I saved on fabric, I spent on specialty flavored oils and vinegars!
