If you are like me, and your crafty eyes are sometimes too big for your crafty stomach, and you’ve got more fabric and do-dads than you’ll ever use, and you happen to live in the Portland area, give them to Knittn’ Kitten! It is your local fabric, bead, and craft supply thrift store.  

I just donated this rather large tote full of fabric, plus a few new and vintage patterns that, despite my eagerness at the time, I know I will never ever make.

Even if you don’t have anything to donate, the shop is certainly worth a peek.  They have a very interesting inventory of inexpensive crafty goodness: patterns, stickers, great yarn (lots of wool), fabric, and many many notions.  They also have some vintage clothes and bric-a-brac for the home, a little of everything.  Though, I must say that my favorite bit has got to be the vintage linen room.  Were it not for the fact that I’m not buying anything until June, I’d have gone a little nuts in there.   

The store is owned by a lovely mother and daughter team, Ethel and Rome.  A real gem – check it out!
