    Red face Sarah from Houston

    Hi! I'm a lifelong craftaholic! I love making things and have tried just about every craft out there. I learned to sew at a young age (I'm 31), but I mainly made apparel. I started quilting a few years ago once I saw all the new fabrics coming out that suited me style. I like working in solids the best, but I don't have many in my stash at the moment. I also knit, crochet, embroider, cross-stitch, paint, draw, sculpt, make jewelry, work in digital media, and am eventually going to combine all of that into one monstrous project. I want to learn needle-tatting next. When I see something I haven't tried before, I never think "That looks hard", I think "I bet I can figure out how to do that!"- that's my general attitude and approach to life, too.

    Anyway, this looks like a great, active community that likes to jump in and help each other out. I hope I can add to that.

    So... anyone in Houston or the surrounding area have any tips on a good LQS? I go to Quiltworks (lovely batiks selection and lots of more traditional fabrics) on 290 near Cypress (Spencer Road, I think), but I'm looking for other places to try, since I'm buying more and more fabric online. I'm drawn more to modern style, and a great solids selection would be awesome. Also don't mind shops farther away that might be good for a day trip. Thanks!

    ETA: Here's my flickr page, which is mainly pictures of some of my more recent projects: http://www.flickr.com/photos/hemlock_tea/

    Hi Sarah welcome to the board. I'm on the beautiful Gulf Coast of Florida so I'm waving across the water! No help with shops in the Houston area, but are you familiar with the City Quilter? Great shop in NYC. They have great selections of urban, modern and contemporary fabrics for quilting, home dec, garment sewing etc. in their online shop. Check them out, glad you're here!

    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.
