Like a kid in a candy store..........

I know we all have things we adore and places we love to visit.  In my case I adore visiting fabric stores and I feel like a kid in a candy store looking at everything.

I have been busy taking sewing classes at a local store called Country Concessions Quilt Store.  I was there at the beginning of the week to purchases some fabric!!  I took some photos while in there.

The building looks so quaint doesn't it?  Where the large windows are on the second floor of the building to the left is where meetings and classes are held.

 Look at all those sewing machines.  They sell Pfaff machines.
 Look at all those colours of thread.
 This is what you see to the left of the door when you walk in.   It's where all the Tula Pink fabrics live!!
 Another section with lots of goodies.  I see they have got a number of felt heavy duty pressing boards.
 Here are some of the batiks, love the colours, but never been a fan at batiks. 
 They have just got new signage.
 The "Queen" seemed pretty happy watching the world go by in the car while I shopped.
They don't have an online store yet, but it is in the works. Country Concessions is located in the village of Cookstown, if you click on this link you can read more about Cookstown.

I nearly forgot, here is what I bought!!  I bought the coral fabric and the black and grey fabric on the left of the photo.  You will see what I am making next week.

You'd definitely be happy in there.

I think I just might be tempted to overspend in that store. Love the fabrics you bought and will be looking forward to seeing what you make.

God bless.
