As promised in my previous post, this post will be about TEXTILES!
A couple of months ago, my dear quilting sister Dana was visiting the Denver, Colorado area (see post Greetings from Colorado) and we got together with her and her daughter Kaite (and darling grandchild) and went to a magical crafting shop in downtown Denver – Fancy Tiger Crafts.
This was my first visit to this shop as I am new to the Denver Metropolitan area.
Upon entering the shop, I quickly realized that if your needs are related to the textile arts – they have it: spinning, knitting, needlework, other needle arts, dressmaking, quilting, bag making, etc.
Here detailed look inside their shop (which we suspect is outside the normal space-time continuum because we spent a lot longer in the shop that we thought we did…).
Knitting, Spinning, Crocheting, Felting, Wool Craft
And don’t forget the spinning wheel!
Dressmaking & Garment Sewing
Other Fun Stuff in the Shop
The shop also had all sort of fun things – like cool tote bags:
And Crafter Merit Badges!
I bought this one:
I loved the decor – here are a couple images of the fun and funky decorations in the shop:
Photos of Friends Shopping
Here are a couple photos of my friend Dana delightfully shopping at Fancy Tiger Crafts for the first time:
Her talented crafter daughter Kaite and Kaite’s delightful 4 year old daughter selected this fabric during our shopping adventure for matching outfits:
We tried to leave the shop after we made our initial purchases several times. Something kept drawing us back as we tried to leave the shop. I think we revisited the counter/register at least twice!
A Return Visit
After my initial visit, which I did post some photos from on my @tierneycreates Instagram account, my Central Oregon friends Wendy and Pat sent me gift cards for Fancy Tiger Crafts!
So a couple of weeks ago I returned on my own and bought some goodies:
All pieces are canvas weight and I am thinking about some cool pouches or tote bags with these remnants.
If you’ve following my blog for a while and Dana’s name sounds familiar, she has been featured in several other posts include the series of posts – Tula Time! (someday I need to post her completed Tula Pink All Stars quilt as well as my friend Judy’s completed quilt); and more recently Fabric Fangirl Frenzy.
