fabric shopping

If you think fabric shopping might excite you, then maybe a visit to Keqiao, China, should be on your agenda.

I happened to be in Keqiao for a few days earlier in the week, which is why this post could not be hung to dry in time. I was fabric shopping, a few days on end. You could probably spend a couple of weeks there and not see all there is to see. Just about any type, color and finish of fabric that might tickle the fibers of your funny bone is hiding in plain sight. That’s no yarn spin. It was enough of an adventure to say that I’ve had my fill of fabric shopping for, say, another three months (maybe).

this hall is a lot longer than it looks.  and there are hundreds of them in Keqiao

It was only a 3.5 hour drive to get there, long enough for at least one pit stop each way. Hope someone likes the fabric we bought. If nothing else, the cloth will make lovely pet cushions.
