UPPERCASE Magazine Event at Brooklyn General Store

On Wednesday, I headed to my local quilt store, Brooklyn General Store, for an event they were hosting with Janine of UPPERCASE magazine.  Janine was in town to talk about her new Feed Sacks book and other fun, creative stuff.


If you remember from my recent holiday wish list, I had the Feed Sacks book on it.  I didn’t get the book for Christmas, but it worked out!  Wednesday was the perfect opportunity to get my hands on a copy.


I cannot wait to dig into this book.  I have a goal to build my feed sack fabric stash and one day make a feed sack quilt.  It’s gonna happen.

I took a few photos of the event and the gorgeous store to share with all of you.  If you are ever in New York, it’s worth heading across the river to our fine borough and visiting Brooklyn General Store.  I highly recommend it.


I don’t knit but I can appreciate a wall of beautiful yarn.


A bucket of vintage fabric scraps: something I can get behind.


All the heart eyes for stacks of ribbon.


You know I couldn’t leave without perusing the fabric.  I so wanted to buy some of this Liberty of London, but I stayed strong and only picked up the book while I was there.


And finally, we all got a little goodie bag from UPPERCASE magazine for coming.


Thanks, Brooklyn General Store and Janine!
