Yesterday, Sunday August 14 Silver Spring Sewing Sisters took a much-needed field trip to Jo-Ann Fabric & Crafts and Super Goodwill in Columbia, MD. We took a brief store tour where the ladies learned all about Jo-Ann Fabrics and what they have to offer. We looked at everything from their floral department to seasonal items all the way through to their doll and jewelry making supplies. The ladies were totally enamored with the endless creativity the store evoked. Most were surprised to find there were so many options outside of the basic fabrics and notions wall. We even left one student behind who immersed her self in the home decor department. She met up with us later at Goodwill. Next week is a big sale at Jo-Ann where Simplicity patterns are $1. My guess is many Silver Spring Sewing Sisters will be headed back that way to grab some pattern deals and fabrics for our upcoming classes.
After we left Jo-Ann Fabric & Crafts we headed over to the Super Goodwill in Columbia where a few ladies found some items they could refashion and some they could just wear outright. The store had lots to offer with a huge selection of pants and blouses. We all had a great time and can’t wait to do it again. Maybe you will join us on our next field trip. We have a few coming up: the Langley Park area, NYC and LA. Just depends on how adventurous you want to be 🙂
