On a recent trip to San Francisco I stopped at one of the BIGGEST fabric shops I have ever seen. Britex Fabrics. I did not just stumble upon this, I admit that it was premeditated (much to the other half's dismay).
|Britex Fabrics - Geary Street, SF|
The building itself is 4 FLOORS! One of which is like an Aladdin's Cave haberdashery with every type of button and notion imaginable.The other three are home to local and internationally designed textiles with fabulous staff manning each station.

I was served by a fabulous gentleman who helped select colours, measured me up so I bought the right quantity for my planned Missoni dress and even posed for a photo. What a star. Thank you man in Britex, I apologise for not getting your name. A lady upstairs on Floor 3 also spent a good 20 minutes choosing the right colour banding for the neckline and showing me how to sew it!

A brilliant experience and a great purchase made. All I have to do now is figure out what the heck to make with it..... What should one do when pondering such things....a root beer in the sunshine. :-)
