Saturday morning I headed off to a shop in Snohomish that I had been to a few weeks ago where I discovered a treasure trove of wool, homespun and reproduction fabrics and primitives. I didn’t have much time that first trip and had it in mind to go back as soon as I could. I’d been to the store a few times in the past several years, but knowing that we were going to move, I never strayed far past the inside of the door for fear I would buy things we couldn’t use in the new house! On that trip a few weeks ago I did stray past the inside of the door and was I ever glad! There was a huge display of wool, an entire room stocked high with fabrics, and more downstairs!
The shop is called “Speckled Hen”. Its owner, a very nice woman – Linda – happened to be there today. We had a terrific conversation and she happily agreed to let me take photos in the shop! If you’re ever in the Snohomish area, you really need to pay her a visit!
Check out the wool display! Linda gets her wool from Wicked Wool.
This is the fabric/cutting room. It isn't any bigger than a large master bath, but chock full of all kinds of homespuns and reproductions!
I'll take a yard of each, please!
There is even a display with one-yard cuts!
The fabrics on the bolts below are canvas, duck-cloth, toweling and the wonderful waffle fabric that Nanette likes to use for dish cloths!
This is the view when you step in the front door.
I spent the weekend catching up on laundry, ironing and mending and doing a little weeding to keep us looking good for house showings. In case you've wondered, we've still only had one showing. Both of us sort of feel like we're in limbo. We're learning to keep our emotions in check over this as we know for sure its going to take time to find a buyer. This afternoon we discussed that on the bright side, we might have one more summer of fly fishing on the Mountain Loop!
