The Little Shop
Since the late 1950s, The Little Shop has evolved from a fabric shop to a quilting center that wraps needle-wielders in a comfortable, creative, and supply-packed environment. Its comprehensive roster of rotating classes keeps curious quilters and beginning thimble-holders satisfied, challenged, and armed with new stitching skills. Crafters with armloads of books, makeup, and Dawson's Creek fan fiction can sew durable supply tote bags ($25 for two classes) or breezy, chic scrunchy Kathy's bags ($25 for two classes) to lighten their loads. Or, sewers can ditch hands for the precision and speed of motors with a two-session machine-quilting class ($30).
