The Seam Shoppe    Key West, Florida

Last month I was in Key West, Florida on Vacation.  I found this unique quilt shop on Truman Avenue.  They do lots of specialty upholstery in addition to quilting and quilting supplies.  As you might expect, they carry lots of tropical and Hawaiian prints. Cindy waited on me and helped me pick out a couple to add to my stash – certainly fabrics you don’t find everywhere.  If you go to visit the Seam Shoppe be prepared to have tricky parking – I couldn’t really find any.  Of course being a downtown Key West shop that is somewhat expected.  Despite the parking, it’s still worth going to have a look.  They also sell their fabrics online at www.tropicalfabricsonline.com
