Yellow Bird Fabrics owner Amy Powell Royer studied apparel and fashion at Utah State before traveling to Guatemala to learn weaving on a back-strap loom, as told to City Weekly. Casual crafters and seasoned sewers alike can revel in the finds of Royer's keen eye among a copious stock of unique fabrics and sewing supplies in her vibrant boutique. Polychromatic cottons ($7.95–$9.95) can become casual garb, and upscale silks ($9.95–$49.95) and linens ($12.95–$14.95) can transform into an elegant dress for attending a charity ball or a mayor's yard sale. Sewers can stock up on necessities, including thread ($3), zippers ($1–$5), and notions ($1–$19.95), before perusing designer fabrics from Anna Sui, Vera Wang, Marc Jacobs, and Maggy London. Lace ($9.95–$149.95) and rare ribbons ($0.50–19.95) seal in the elegance of a hand-wrought bridal gown or a physically unsound parachute.
