  1. Just discovered your blog… it’s fantastic! I am in my late 20s and love to sew garments too – I sometimes don’t know how a pattern will turn out, so it’s nice to see all of the patterns you’ve tried and what they look like on a real person! Anyway, I just moved to Rochester, NY and Ithaca is a good 45 minutes away so I was wondering what your thoughts were on Homespun for apparel fabric… Is there a good selection? is it worth the 45 minute trip or is it just a cute shop to visit if you’re in town? I’d appreciate any advice. Thank you! ~Laura

    • Hi Laura! Sorry for the delayed response. I’m so glad you find my blog useful and thanks for checking out this particular page. I should update it! In any case, I was actually really impressed with Homespun and the large number of apparel fabrics they had. I bought two pieces: a beautiful rayon that I hope to finally do something with this fall and a colorful wool that I might use for a spring coat. I would highly recommend a visit! High quality stuff. There was another fabric store in town too, but it was closed when I visited. And, of course, Ithaca is totally worth a visit on its own — the gorges, the great old houses… It’s a treat!

Hey, thanks for commenting! I truly appreciate it and always try to respond back. :)
