To help small businesses stay in business, there is a movement to get people to shop the smaller stores on Saturday. Even though I was here at Center Diamond, Cannon Beach, OR, on a Sunday, I had to buy at least 5 yds of fabric along with some buttons.
I found Center Diamond’s ad in a quilt magazine and they offered a scrapbuilders special. Each month, you would receive about 8-9 4X4 swatches of fabric from their newest lines. I hoarded these swatches for about 10 years using some occasionally. Finally, I made the decision to donate the swatches to my church so we could make prayer quilts.
But back to Center Diamond – look at those fabulous colors. Makes me wish I could retire now and just sew. But if you ever get up to the Pacific Northwest, check out Center Diamond on Hemlock St. There is a quilt run in November and they are listed. Happy sewing.
