Today, while journeying down Broadway I stopped into Fancy Tiger Crafts. As soon as a stepped through the door I fell in love and became obsessed. This store was made for me. I wandered the shelves of fabric bundles, organized by hue, mesmerized by the textures, patterns, and color combinations. Across from the fabric was (almost) ceiling high selves stuffed with every shade of yard imaginable. I'm still in awe.

Located at 56 Broadway, this wonderful abode hosts all things needle craft created, from sewing and quilting, knitting and crocheting, to spinning and loom work. I could get lost in this store for hours. Hell, my mind is still lost in that store. They provide classes in all of the above for a reasonable price.
While more expensive than more common crafting store like Micheal's and Joann's, the quality is in the product. The fabric feels richer than its counterparts. The yarn is made from genuine wool, rather than mixed fibers. Needless to say, I'm in lust, and on the brink of love.

I fell in love with this alpaca yarn. Better yet, it's from Cascade Yarns in Seattle, another love of mine. No wonder it jumped out at me, even though I didn't know it's origin until I got home. Warm mittens for the Colorado winter to come!
