The Fancy Tiger

So when you go to Denver please please please put Fancy Tiger on your list. High on the list. Maybe on the list twice. It's that good. These are photos from my phone (not the best but you get the idea) that I took while walking around ooh-ing and aah-ing and touching everything and knowing I'd never be able to remember it all.
You walk in and see crafter's paradise spread out before you. Embroidery supplies, knitting, crochet, needle felting, spinning, fabric and more fabric and patterns galore...sigh. So much goodness in one bright happy place.
This might be the worst picture of the most adorable thing ever - mason jar pin cushion/sewing kit. Just a great idea. Perfect souvenir!
Even though I crochet pretty well I'd still like to learn to knit. Maybe some day when it's not 100 degrees outside. This also made me miss Knitch - is there another fun yarn store in Atlanta like it? If so please enlighten me!
Laaaaaa - can you hear the angels singing? Just a little? Such a well curated collection of fabric, including Japanese imports and Liberty of London, so very tempting, all of it. Loads of embroidery goodness in the front and middle of the shop, books and class space at the back - it made me so happy I had to go twice :-) The only sad part? I live so far away! Guess I'll have to just enjoy the blog :-)

  1. Fancy Tiger had so much less when I went there years and years ago (2008 I think). It was where I purchased my first Echino.
