WDT, Part 2: {Still in} Atlanta
Whipstitch Fabrics


Atlanta was good to us. We were there for less than 24 hrs. but seemingly did and saw so much! Well, I do realize now that I should've posted these in chronological order, but in the interest of keeping things exciting, let's go back in time about 4 hrs., shall we? Before we headed to Intown Quilters, Jon and I stopped in to see our friend Deborah at Whipstitch Fabrics.

The modern, open and sort of urban feel of this space really spoke to my design style. I felt right at home from the moment we walked in. {of course, seeing a huge display of knits front & center definitely helped with that warm & fuzzy feeling}

Deborah and I hit it off like we were old school buddies. We chatted and laughed about everything under the sun. I got to meet some of her sweet staff members and took a quick tour of the shop before picture time. This photo was really dark at first but I wanted to include it because I thought it was so cute...

Ahhh... much better lighting over here by the front window...

Haha... here I am totally freaking out over a vintage Singer that was identical to one I almost bought at an antique show recently. See, what I mean? We're like two peas in a pod, that girl and I!

Deborah, thanks so much for having us, for the delish hummus & pita snacks and for recommending that amazing brew pub Jon and I spent the rest of the afternoon at watching the World Cup semi-finals and eating antelope burger (well, Jon did, I just had a bite).

Next up... Bernina University, Sydney's runway debut and a not-to-be-missed giveaway! Stay tuned.
