Ah, yes, the crochet blanket that never was, and yet someday still may be. Maybe you have one too?
Anyhoo, what started in a basement in 2006 is now 7000 square feet of gorgeous yarns and fabrics in Ft. Collins, Colorado, where locals can even shop in person. As a longtime sewist and quilter, Sheri knows her fabrics. She stocks lots of organic fabrics (Cloud 9, Birch and Monaluna), Moda, Riley Blake and more. Today my head is turned by Riley Blake's Honeycomb dots....
Browsing the shop, I also noticed lots of cute baby and children's novelty fabrics, including Ed Emberley's Happy Drawing (I've used those lions a lot!) and his newest collection, Picture Pie.
Besides selling fabrics by the yard, The Loopy Ewe offers affordable 8-piece bundles called short stacks. You can buy them in color themes to bulk up your stash of yellow, for example, or in themes based on collections.

I don't think I had come across Grey Abbey before (top left). It has a Scandinavian feel, don't you think? Love the flat, repeated motifs.
And then, let's not forget the yarn! Check out the Loopy Cakes collections, affordable superwash merino presented in color themes like Rustic Barn, Starry Night and 80's Totally Awesome. How fun! I really can't even choose which ones to feature. For the sake of color-love, go look at them all.
The Loopy Ewe has a sweet rewards program which gives you a $25 store credit, every time your orders accumulate to $250. (Plus other fun rewards - you can read about the program here.) So that could come in handy... especially if you both yarn and fabric cravings.
In celebration of their new sponsorship, The Loopy Ewe is giving away a Short Stack fabric bundle of your choice. Anyone can win, anywhere in the world. To enter the giveaway, add a comment now through noon (eastern time) on Thursday the 24th. Tell us if you work in fabric and yarn, or just fabric. I bet there are lots of us who dabble in a bit of both!
Our lucky winner is #165, Kchabr55. Congrats! I'll be in touch.
