A couple months ago, my Bay Area Modern Quilt Guild friend Amy a la Mode linked to a Groupon coupon for $20 worth of goodies for only $10 from Bobbin's Nest Studio in Santa Clara, California. Well, who can pass up a deal like that? I got a chance to go redeem my fabric a few weeks ago and really enjoyed my trip to this tucked-away little shop. Here's a peek at their fabric wall (from the Bobbin's Nest website - I was far too distracted to remember to take a picture, of course):
As the name indicates, Bobbin's Nest really is a bit more heavily focused on knitting supplies and goodies. Even though their fabric selection was small, it was very thoughtful - you could tell they hand-selected fabrics they loved and thought others would enjoy as well. The ladies working were super helpful and friendly. They showed me some of their new fabrics and I ended up getting a couple of those.
If you're looking for solids or an entire set of fabrics for a quilt, you probably need to make more stops than just Bobbin's Nest. But, if you need some cute attention-grabbers to go along with the basics you've found, or if you're looking for an inspirational fabric or two, definitely check out Bobbin's Nest Studio. I will definitely return!
