Today I am not speaking for Surrounded by Scraps or even The Creative Bungalow. Today's plug is for my absolute favorite LQS here in Portland, and yes I may be a bit biased (and in full disclosure, have been working here for nearly 4 years now). The great little shop in the SE Portland craftsman house, Cool Cottons, has launched an online store!
Can now be found on the World Wide Web...
Those of you who have had the opportunity to visit the shop here in Portland and have met Marie know what a unique place this is and what an amazing eye she has for finding the best of the best prints. After working at a couple of other local quilt shops for several years I told myself that the only fabric store I would work at in the future is the one store that never hires. So I figured I was out of the business (which honestly would have been fine with me at the time). But about 2-3 months after I left my previous job to concentrate on Surrounded by Scraps, that "never" turned around. Marie was looking for help just one day a week. It turned out to be a win-win. And continues to be.
So we're ready to start this new adventure and looking forward to "meeting" more of you quilters and sewists from far and wide. But keep in mind that even though the Cool Cottons fabrics are now available from your computer screens, to get the true Cool Cottons experience there's nothing like a visit to 2417 SE Hawthorne, Portland, OR!
