Okay, so this is the second quilt shop we visited while in Holland, Michigan. I'll admit this store is even more of a puzzle now than it was when I visited. This is how the store looked from the front. The building was huge, and I couldn't get a picture of the whole thing without putting the camera in "pano" mode.
Field's Fabrics, based in Grand Rapids Michigan, has seven retail store locations throughout the West Michigan area. Field's Fabrics first opened in 1953 as a Dry Goods store. Fabric sold very well and eventually expanded to become all fabrics and notions. Field's Fabrics carries a vast selection in almost every category of fabrics along with many fabric related supplies, many of which are also available worldwide. New fabrics and supplies are constantly being updated both in-store and our online selection.
Okay, so it's not exactly what I thought, but it isn't a quilt shop per se...it's a store for anyone who sews anything. I'll say I didn't see much related to embroidery there...no floss, as an example...but certainly one could find anything else, including patterns for sewing garments.
So what did I come away with? Well, I selected this one for my regional fabric. And I was happy with my choice until I made my way to the register.
