Sew Biz

Sew Biz, in Radford, VA is an interesting shop.  Housed in an 1890 building that used to be a hotel, the architecture is truly unique for a quilt shop. 
And on top of that there is so much to see in this shop it is truly overwhelming.  Everywhere you turn there is another nook or cranny filled with fabric, notions or yarn. The quilt below hangs in the entry area from the mezzanine level.
Brick archways that connect the rooms echo the arched shape of the windows.
This picture is  taken from the stairway to the mezzanine level looking down at the windows.  Fabric bolts even line the stairway landing.
On the upper level, there are more archways and tons of fabric!  There is so much to see - did I mention that it's overwhelming?  Maybe I was just too tired that day, but there really was a lot! 
Downstairs in the back of the building is a spacious classroom.
The short hallway to it is lined with fabric and yarn.
Their "Home Sweet Home" row features bird houses. I forgot to take a picture of the row but you can see a bit of it in the kit pictured below.
As their license plate says, keeping up with everything in this shop must keep them So Sew Bizzy!
