Last week I had the privilege of traveling with 2 of the moda sales reps that cover parts of Washington and Oregon. Diane and Bob Toycen
Bob had made Diane license plate holders with fun sayings. This one says check out moda at Moda Bake Shop.com. The car was loaded up and we started on our way to see some of the local “color”. I rode along to just a few of the stores. Man oh Man, I am so jealous after seeing the variety of stores in this area.
We stopped at Fibers & Stitches in St. Helen’s, Oregon. Just the outside of the building was enough to make you have to stop and see what is inside.
Quiltworks MW in Bellevue was a feast. Where Materials meet Inspiration…..
Full of the unusual and different. I couldn’t help but love their Moda Bake shop display table. The sign read, All you DESIRE self-serve dessert table. Too cute!
They also stock a FULL range of beads and buttons. Too far for me to take some jewelry classes but I would if I could.
Another stop along the drive was The Quilting Loft, a fabric boutique. Cute shop in a very
trendy area. Apparel, kids things and a great variety or fabrics and patterns. Angie also has machine quilting services and is very involved in charitable events.
I found out that right down the street from here is where the boats from
The Deadliest Catch dock.
(this is one of my husband’s favorite shows so I felt it was my duty to stop for some pics)
Stopped here for a drink and a T-shirt.
Found a boat for my husband or just a funny picture.
I had a coffee from the Starbucks headquarters. Saw the Amazon building also.
Sisters Fabric in Chehalis, Washington was one of our stops. They were excited that
the UPS man delivered moda’s William Morris collection during our visit.
A huge fan of Fig Tree fabrics as the front window proudly displayed several
quilts featuring Joanna’s fabrics. And yes all you fig tree fans she does mail order!
Momma Made It is a delightful shop specializing in reproduction fabrics in Longview, WA.
If they do not have the reproduction fabric you are looking for it probably does not exist.Recognize Edyta’s (Laundry Basket) quilt in the background?
( thanks Diane for being such a trooper and letting me take so many pics of you!)
Thanks to all the stores for making me feel at home and letting me shop!
Tough, I know but someone had to do it.
