Rookie Moms Challenge #4: Visit the fabric store

Easy fabric projects for moms

We have instructions to make some very easy projects:

In Berkeley, we frequent Stone Mountain and Daughters. The discount fabric shop on Ashby and San Pablo is also a great choice. In El Cerrito, there is JoAnn Fabrics tucked into the plaza near Trader Joe’s.

Where do you like to go to get your fabric and crafty supplies?

    After being a customer of Stonemountain & Daughter for more than ten years, and a parent for 6, I just learned that they have a small play area to occupy children while you shop. Not for toddlers who wander around, but great for 4 and up who will stay there.

    I’ve been going to A Verb for Keeping Warm on San Pablo in between Actual Cafe and that cupcake shop, ever since I took a sewing class there. They are smaller, but soooo nice and helpful.
