These are the fabrics I bought at United Notions (Moda) today. It was the first time I've been to the Dallas warehouse and it was nothing short of textile heaven. When I walked through the front door, Moda Vicki greeted and ID'ed me (you need a resale license to shop). Then Vicki gave me the grand tour. Oh, I wish videotaped it for you. On the way to the warehouse there is a room designed with the latest and greatest Moda fabrics, creations, and patterns. Then there's a library with fabric samples from every single Moda line. My fabric lovin' heart started to beat so fast and I knew I was where I was meant to be! I tried to act all relaxed but my giddiness couldn't be hidden. I think I may have skipped and twirled. Not really, but I did think about. I hoped I would run into Modalissa but it didn't happen.
Moving on with the tour... Vicki slowly pushed the solid steel warehouse door open and angels sang. Oh, friends. Aisles upon aisles upon aisles of bolts. Gorgeous bolts. Every color, every pattern, every style you could ever want. And then. Vicki said, "Have fun!" And in the blink of an eye, she disappeared. Are you kidding me?! "I am never leaving," was my first thought. I started to browse the aisles for sophisticated, sassy fabric. It was so hard to choose. But I'm thrilled with what I got and can't wait to sew fabulous things. I showed Brad the fabric I selected when he got home from work. His response was "Cool. Looks good." Apparently not a fabric junkie.
