First, I went to Les Fabriques, my usual stop when visiting Charlottesville. I drove to the location and discovered an empty store front! My heart fell. I panicked. But then I checked online and learned Les Fabriques hadn't closed, it moved. The new location is much bigger and more luxuriously decorated. Here is what I picked up:
|teal cotton stripe; teal stretch woven; yellow knit|
It being graduation weekend, hotel rooms were scarce and overpriced. As a result, my hotel was about 25 miles from Charlottesville in Waynesboro. Naturally, I searched for independent fabric stores in Waynesboro and found Fabric Warehouse. This store and Les Fabriques are polar opposites. Les Fabriques is located in an upscale shopping plaza. Fabric Warehouse is located in a low rent strip mall which translates to lower prices. I picked up these two pieces for less than $25.00:
|magenta twill and cotton check|
So, I was not able to join the PR Weekend fun in New York City. But I was able to score nice fabrics in my own personal PR Weekend.
