have you ever been to candy land?
i was so overwhelmed on my first trip.
it was candy overload!!
there is an entire isle of moda marbles
and what feels like endless isles of flat folds
there are cotton/poly mixes for $2 a yard .. flannels.. knits... there is a lot for under $2 too!
digging is a part of the fun.. you can't tell what things are from the ends so there is lots of pulling and digging!!
the flat folds are the back half.. this is the front.
isles and isles of fabric.. new current stuff...
see... they even have the wide bolts, wovens, and pre-quilted...
this is the checkout.. and more piles you can dig through...
i told you.. it is like it never ends...
i usually avoid putting pictures of me on here.. cause well you are here for the quilts.. and pics of me.. well.. but i decided to give in.. just to prove that its me in the top one.. circa early 2007...
so where is this place? in LA... we learned about "M&L" in a local joanns... from a local quilter.. i asked where was a good place to get fabric and she sent me here.. with a warning ..
it is not a quilt shop.
they will not cut fat quarters.
there are limited notions and barely any patterns.
they don't know about quilting and can't help you.
the staff isn't very nice
there is no website, or newsletter
she said to lower your expectations on everything but the fabric.
i almost didn't go!!
she was right.. it is not a quilt shop.. but its fabric heaven!
as for the staff... they were not so bad on my last visit... but back in 2007... well.. ya know.
so candy land. seriously.
if you are in the LA area.
you have to go.
