Z Fabrics is in downtown Portland, a city that was bigger than she expected but an easy drive in and out.
The street address (477 Congress St) took us to the public library where across the street was the biggest statue I have seen outside of Europe, easily 4-5 stories high. Fortunately the resource librarian was able to direct us on how to get to the store. It was not far.
The shop is small but full of unique fabrics from vendors we do not see at a typical quilt store. Elizabeth bought two fat quarters that appealed to her and a half-yard which she thought might be a compliment to the row from the shop in Tilton, NH (the turtles).
If you enjoy beading, a bead store is next door and we had great lunch sandwiches at a funky little café called Dutch’s down the street.
