Stash Diversity in Columbia City

Last Thursday, walking around Columbia City ArtWalk after dinner at La Medusa, I saw this:

YARN? In Columbia City?
How have I never heard of this?
“Uh, hon, I’m going over there…”
Well, it is not a yarn shop and doesn’t pretend to be, it is a quilt shop with a little corner of yarn:


That really is all of it, the rest is not cut off in the photo.
You can see the fabric encroaching on the bottom shelf.
At first I was not sure what the point was.
She has Cascade 220, which, if you’re gonna stock one yarn, it probably ought to be Cascade 220. A few other yarns, a few needles, like I said, not sure what the point is.
Oh.
Right.
It is to lure Knitters-Who-Do-NOT-Quilt in to her shop where she knows we will swoon at all her Very Cool Fabrics:




and buy something even though we do not quilt and would not ditch our husbands for a quilt shop (he did come find me later).
She knows we stash and it is a tiny fall from stashing yarn to stashing fabric.
In fact!
I just realized.
Her shop is called Stash.
Subtle.

It worked, I bought some flannel to make jammie bottoms for the kids:


I bought the last 3 yards, went home, searched patterns, found I need 2 yards per jammie, went back and bought 3 yards of a coordinating print so I can do the fronts in hedgie and backs in the coordinating, and I am now going to make 3 jams, including one for me.

looks like hedgehog spines? sorta?

“YARN”, it said.
“YARN” on that durn sandwich board and now I have 6 yards of flannel.
Dangit!

Come to think of it, I do need some Cascade 220…

Beautiful selection of fabric and a convenient place to grab some Cascade 220 or some sock yarn in a pinch.
