I see that several bloggers have always said they take their out of town friends to the Tempe SAS. They have said it's the best. I have not gone to the others... just the Tempe SAS.

So glad you liked it Joanne. I went their often when my kids were in the musicals during their high school years... when I was sewing costumes. It's a sewers paradise for Halloween costume making!

Wow, your location looks a little more organized than the one by my house. We don't have the ric-rac on rods like that! It's all lined on shelves!


It was DEFINATELY worth not re-washing your hair!!


Ohhhh, all that RIBBON and ric-rac! In my case, that stuff goes on cards, not clothes, but it's still very cool seeing it all together like that!

Ric-Rac, Ric-Rac, Ric-Rac, Ric-Rac!! I LOVE to SAY Ric-Rac!! :0)

Have a wonderful weekend, friend. The year is already seeming too long....but it's gonna be GOOD!


Joanne, when (see? I used "when" instead of "if"! There's still hope!) you come to Singapore one day, I'll bring you to an awesome place near my house where you can find a large variety of fabric and another place where you can find lots and lots of crafting items! I think you'll like it ;)
