My Trip to Fancy Tiger Crafts in Denver and big news!


I’m writing this post from my hotel room in Denver, Colorado – where I have had an amazing week! Yesterday I got the chance to visit Fancy Tiger Crafts and experience the most modern and fun quilt shop I have ever been in.

From the very start, I knew this was nothing like the sleepy quilt shops that I know (and love) from home. I mean, check out the adorable Cotton + Steel thread collection that greeted me!


The next thing I saw was Amy Gibson’s beautiful new fabric collection – sewn up in modern quilts!

This is more than just a quilt shop, though. They also carry a full selection of apparel fabrics and patterns, plus YARN! Yes, lots of beautiful designer quality yarn.

But what did I ‘walk’ out of there with? Quilty stuff, of course! I picked up Jacquie Gerings new book WALK plus the Supernova quilt pattern that I’ve been stalking on the Fancy Tiger Crafts website. When I actually had it in my hands, I couldn’t wait to buy it any longer!

Oh, and I bought more thread. Sigh. I’m such a sucker for pretty colors.

One more thing I have to show you – look at their class room! How I would love to take a class here. 

But I couldn’t. I was way too busy. Doing what, you may ask???

I was filming another Craftsy class!!! I’m so excited that the filming is done (as of a few hours ago) and I can finally tell you that it’s coming! This is going to be so huge – I was totally stoked to be invited to be a part of something totally new for Craftsy. I can’t wait to tell you all about it, but I can’t share very much right now. I’ll just let you guess what it is from the picture above. 🙂

{wondering about my other Craftsy class? It’s awesome. Check out Colorful Patchwork Bags and Baskets!}

Ok! That was my very exciting week. What about yours? Any new sewing or quilty fun in your life? Did you make something with one of my free sewing tutorials or patterns? I would love to see! Tag me on Instagram @sewcanshe.
