California – February 19th

Wednesday was a fun and crafty day! Our first stop was M&L Discount Fabrics is Anaheim. This place is huge, I think we spent over three hours there. About half of the front section of the store is devoted to quilting cottons but there is also a great selection of fleece, minky, lace, and special occasions fabrics as well as patterns, buttons, and notions. We spent most of our time on the back section of the store though.


There is a HUGE section of flat fold fabric, most $3 per yard. Most of it is cotton but there was also a ton of t-shirt jersey, upholstery fabric, denim, and more.


Seriously, look how tall some of these stacks are! We could barely see over them.


It’s a bit of a pain to look through, especially when you find a fabric you like that’s waaaaay at the bottom of the pile. Our poor arms were getting really tired by the end of our visit. The price is right though, and they actually had some nicer quilting cottons and linen-look fabrics.

With sore arms, we headed over to Wildfiber in Santa Monica.


The store is adorable and well organized and the staff was very friendly. I don’t do much as far as crochet or knitting, but my mother was very excited to see and touch all the beautiful yarns.


There was a cute place to sit and work and lots of lovely examples of work.


They also carry a selection of books, buttons, and knitting needles.


Finally we headed over to Sherman Oaks to play some mini golf at Castle Park. We had so much fun we decided to make mini golf a part of every visit from now on. We played through course three, so we have to other courses to check out when we make it back.
