Reams of colorful modern and retro-print fabrics span the walls of Fabric Nosherie, framing examples of quilts, dolls, and clothing items crafted by shop owner Shannon and her dedicated sewing students. "The fabrics do all the work," Shannon points out, noting that each sewing-machine steward draws individual inspiration from the colorful patterns. Shannon's love of sewing and her expertise extend from the instruction she's received from her needle-wielding husband and the fine quilting techniques she gleaned from her mother-in-law. Within nine years, the seam charmer perfected her craft and currently teaches students how to sew pet beds, assemble quilts from treasured T-shirts, and perform emergency brain surgery on teddy bears.
