Fabric Bliss

On Saturday I visited a new store in town, Fabric Bliss at 828 Santa Fe Drive in Denver.  It's the artsy part of Santa Fe and it's a nice area to go for a walk.  Colorado photographer, John Fielder's store is across the street.

Fabric Bliss a charming shop that caters to both knitters and sewers.  It's bright and cheery and I was greeted with a warm welcome.  Being a lover of Rowan yarns, it's the first thing I focused on when I started browsing.  The yarn is on the right-hand side of the shop:

There are a couple of other brands of yarn, but the Rowan yarn was one I hadn't seen before, so I made a beeline for it.  It's a new yarn, just launched this spring:  Rowan Amy Butler Belle Organic, 50% wool and 50% cotton.  The store had both the DK and Aran weights.  I left with a ball of the DK weight in Cornflower Blue, #002 to swatch with.  More on the yarn another time.

On the right-hand side of the shop are the fabrics and sewing supplies:

On the left is Aurora, the owner and right is Kayla, her assistant.
I'm not a sewer but there were things that would tempt me if I was.  Aurora's cheerfulness and enthusiasm are infectious.  Her shop has lots of room to grow and to add more products and I look forward to a return visit in the not-too-distant future.
