Craft South Fabric Shop Visit

Outside Craft South quilt shop in Tennessee

I enjoy exploring new quilt shops to see the quilting fabrics they offer, meet new people, see what is new in the quilting world, and understand more of what makes a fabric shop fun and inviting.

Anna Maria Horner’s shop in Nashville was my most recent.  She moved from her previous location to this new location within the last year or so. It was easier to get to, parking is by the store entrance, and a great space all she offers. Her quilts are magnificent and the store is waiting to be explored!

On the left when entering the main shop area, stairs rise to a storage area. The rotating green hardware bin displays various fat quarters and other fabric cuts and scrap bags for sale. Around the ceiling, quilts made from Anna Maria’s fabrics are displayed.
Shelves of fabric bolts and quilts displayed around ceiling area.
Bright, colorful bolts of fabrics are displayed in this area. Behind the ribbon shelf is the cutting table.

To the back of the shop is the classroom area, where a knitting class was being held the day I visited.
Patterns, thread, and other fabrics
Finishing the 360 degree view of the shop, shows the threads, patterns, and more unique fabrics available to purchase.

I imagine at this point you are wondering if I purchased anything. Yes, I did! I’m in the process of designing a new quilt pattern and the fat quarter bundle of Anna Maria Horner’s fabrics is just what I want to use for the quilt!

I was so happy to take a trip, getting out of the cold to a sunny place, visiting family, and make a long-overdue visit to a quilt shop.

Do you have a recommendation of a quilt shop that people should visit when traveling? We’d all enjoy hearing about it.
