One last shop stop on our trip to Blacksburg was on the way home at Cottonwood in Charlottesville, VA.  This was a last minute addition when we decided to change our route home and found out that this shop was open on Sunday.
Their row and license plate were front and center.  A large version of their license plate hung on the door.
The row was hanging above the check out counter opposite the entrance.  Both the license and row are a nod to the campus of the University of Virginia, home of the Wahoos ('Hoos for short).  The mini quilts on the row are done in UVA's orange and blue.  A clever link between the owls "home sweet home" and UVA.  As the parent of a UVA grad, a must-have row!
There is a wide selection of fabrics, from traditional to contemporary, batik to blenders and 30's fabrics.  They also carry wool for penny rug type projects, and sell Bernina sewing machines.
Something for everyone.
The shop's winning row quilt was on display.
Sue's purchases included the row kit and license plate and some batik fat quarters for use in a current project.
We were happy to find this shop open on a Sunday afternoon!
