Fabrics Along the Way

In February 2013 I went into a fun shop at Mongoose Junction in Cruz Bay, St John.  Fabric Mill.  The proprietor had some beautiful batik fabrics and really cute casual clothes.  Wouldn’t it be fun to collect fabrics along the way to make interesting souvenirs?

Have you found a shop in an interesting place selling interesting fabrics?  Why don’t we try to collect names and pictures of fabric stores with unique offerings in our travels? We all know the “big name” stores and they serve a great purpose.  Maybe we could support smaller unique stores as well for unique items.  (I asked the proprietor if I could take this picture and she really appreciated being asked so keep that in mind if you are taking photos in someone’s shop.)
