Ottawa Street

In the city near where I live there is a street that is just full of fabric stores. There are stores with quilting fabric, drapery and upolstery fabric, bridal fabric and fabric to make dance costumes. I am sure if there is any other kind of fabric you could find it on Ottawa Street as well. I was there recently to buy fabric to recover the cushions of a glider rocking chair that had been given to my daughter-in-law. There were a couple of new signs put up since the last time I was there — they are very appropiate for a street that has so many fabric stores.


Notice the buttons at the bottom of the community bulletin board.


The bright colored rings near the base of this sign caught my eye and then — I looked up — I am impressed with the creativity in this sign. The next 2 pictures are close-ups to show you more detail.



By the way, I found some great fabric for the cushions in exactly the right color for only $2.00 a yard. I bought 5 yards which is more than enough — just in case I make any mistakes — and I got it all for a bargain price.

  1. A street devoted to fabric stores! I would think I’d died and gone to heaven. My best “fabric store experience” to date is a trip to Brighton Fabrics in San Francisco — four stories high and jam-packed with fabric.
