Road Trip – Sew Sassy, Urbana, Illinois
While on a visit to see my brother in Central Illinois, we stopped in Sew Sassy. It is located in Urbana, Illinois. We found it to be just a short distance from I-74 in Lincoln Square. It is a little hard to find as we didn’t see a sign, and it wasn’t very clear that it was inside a mall of sorts. Being very dedicated to our mission of finding the shop once we set out for it, we were eventually successful.
As you can see in the picture above, it is very welcoming right from their doorstop. It was the first days of the Illinois Shop Hop. There were quite a few customers inside but they were very welcoming and helpful. They are participating in the 2017 Row by Row. It took a very blurry picture of their row – I apologize:
Sew Sassy Row by Row
The row shows a road crossing the finish line (and cute little stuffed animals hanging below it which were too cute!). They offered us the row as a pattern or kit, and we left with the pattern.
The shop offers a good selection of fabrics, especially batiks which were on sale. They also offer patterns, notions, sewing machine and a selection of classes. We also found a good selection of wide quilt backings.
Sew Sassy Models
Marian was very helpful and friendly. She told us about several classes she teaches. The shop has many models to tempt and inspire you. This one caught my eye, and reeled me in:
I love the colors in this quilt, as well as the quilting and finishing. We may need to add an airplane, gray and yellow quilt to our to-do list. ~smile~
