Sewbussted's Material Witness Episode 2/The Fabric Nook

I just could not be more excited!!! The second episode of Sewbussted's Material Witness is up and it was so much fun to do. I think...I hope...you'll enjoy it as much as I enjoyed putting it together.

In the preliminary video, I shared that I wanted to combine flying and interviews. I did not fly to this location. Granby, Colorado is nestled in the Rocky Mountains. I have had a little mountain flying instruction, but only a little. Flying in the mountains, especially the Rocky Mountains, is quite different from flying at lower altitudes in a small airplane. 

The Fabric Nook is owned by a lovely lady, Tina Holley. In my opinion, her store is truly the gem of not only the town, but the entire county.   



The store has a very interesting history, which you'll hear in the video, and I think you'll enjoy meeting a sewist with a rich history all her own. 



What I love most about Tina's story is that she stepped out, and took a chance at her dream. Once she made that step, she has not looked back, and her excitement is contagious!  

We mentioned the original wood floors. As you walk through the store, you can't help but feel the history.


The Fabric Nook is the ONLY place where you can find a zipper in the entire county.


We also mentioned that Tina participated in the Row By Row Quilting Experience. Below is a picture of "Through The Aspen." A few kits are still available and if by chance you would like to order one, you can find the Fabric Nook HERE. Just scroll down and you'll find the kit! 


Thanks so much for stopping by. With each video, I've learned a little more. I'm excited for the next!!!

If you ever find yourself in Colorado, by all means, stop by and see Tina. She'll be so happy to meet you, and she'll make you feel right at home :)

  3. Sweet video Rhonda! Thank you for sharing. Surprisingly here in NH there is not as much as I would like for fabric (except for quilting:{! But there are a couple. Delectable Mountain Cloth is in Brattleboro VT and is a tiny beautiful store worth checking out. She only carries natural fibers (beautiful silks, bridals, Italian cottons, linens,etc.). I bought the silk tulle for my daughter's bridal veil there but couldn't buy the lace because it is not all natural! It is such a beautiful and unique shop in a beautiful little town. If you are ever up that way, it would be a wonderful place to highlight.

  4. Absolutely loved this video! When you first mentioned your idea to do the SewBussted series I thought what a good idea, but your people skills makes it even better than I had imagined. You don't just highlight people's skills and talent; you highlight their personalities as well. Thank you so much for doing this. What a blessing you are to the sewing community!

    1. Thanks Kelley 😊 My husband got a kick out of me as when I was getting the video ready to post, he heard me laughing and asked what I was laughing about. "Just enjoying the video," I replied! Here I knew what was going to happen, but it was still a joy to watch 😊

    1. Thanks Chris! I have at least 4 more in the lineup, so they will continue to come 😊 What excites me is how different each person is and how different what they do is, so I think it will be very interesting to watch and discover all the wonderful things that are happening in the sewing world. As for the top I'm wearing, I will post a picture of me in the top next week along with a link to the free pattern. Thanks for asking 😊
