I've just returned from an amazing trip to Savannah, Georgia, that included spiked slushies, an education on architecture, and of course a few new craft stores to add to my list of favorites. Visiting Savannah? Get your craft on with these fabric and yarn stores. (Just don't go in there after you've slurped those spiked slushies. Bad things can happen to your bank account.)
After you drool over the fabrics, swing by The Book Lady a few doors down. Their selection of craft books isn't great, but they have plenty of other categories, including a sweet Flannery O'Connor section.
The Frayed Knot has some beautiful sample projects on display so you can really feel some of the yarns feel when they're knitted up. Drop by on Tuesday or Thursday nights for their weekly craft and crochet groups. I picked up this pretty trio of Cascade Cherub Aran Sparkle when I was there, but I'm not sure what I'm going to do with it yet. Shawl, perhaps?
If you're a movie buff, eat at Laurie's next door where scenes from Forrest Gump were filmed.
Measure was the super cute sign. I just happened to spot it on our way to tour the Mercer House. This fabric shop has a nice selection of leather and apparel fabrics, plus some really cute trims.
Shout out to my patient travel companion Alex who accompanied me to all these stores without any complaint -- and even got pretty excited over some of the fabric.
Know any other good Savannah craft stores? I'll put 'em on my list for the next trip.
