This weekend we went to the play, Church Basement Ladies, A Second Helping at the Plymouth Playhouse. While we were in the cities I got a tip on a great place to go and find deals on fabric. It's called S R Harris in Brooklyn Park and it's insane. It is a 30,000 square foot warehouse with floor to ceiling fabric. I really didn't know what I was getting myself into, all I knew was that there was going to be a lot of fabric and you cut it yourself. After 45 minutes of being somewhat overwhelmed I checked out with my mere 1/2 yard of fabric, 5 yards of trim and 1/2 yard of lace motif. When the check out girl said $8.00 I asked her if she got everything because that didn't seem right, she assured me it was correct and all bolted fabric is always 1/2 price. Well, I wanted to turn right around and check out the wools and silks a little closer but we had other things on the agenda so I just made a mental note that I'm going to have to go back. Unfortunately I had left my camera at home and my cell phone back at the hotel so you will just have to trust me that is something to see.
I didn't manage to get much done in the car this trip. Part of the time I was driving and part of the time a was sleeping but not at the same time of course, so this is all I accomplished.
