I'm going to try to start posting some of my favourite things on Fridays. It may not be every Friday, but I do hope it will be regular. I may be talking about a new book, a new pattern, a fabric line, a tool, anything really. For this first one I have chosen a store.
Mad About Patchwork is a Canadian run fabric store that is here in town (well technically just a wee tiny bit out of town). When I first placed an order I didn't pay attention to where it was and when my package showed up two days later and I saw the address I laughed. Pam, the owner, is one of the founding board members of the Ottawa Modern Quilt Guild along with myself and a few others. Through our get togethers for the guild I feel I can call Pam a friend now and I consider myself lucky.
Pam carries a lot of current modern lines like Charley Harper and Botanics, and sells them at awesome prices (not something that is easy in Canada). She also carries a huge range of Kona solids which is good, because I am always buying from her at the last minute and have never been disappointed. These pictures are some of her solids from a quilt show she had a booth at.
I do hope that maybe you will take a moment and check out Mad About Patchwork… I know you won’t be disappointed :) (and since everyone seems to always add in these caveats… no I haven’t been paid and Pam doesn’t even know I am writing this :))
