Finch Sewing Studio

A couple of days before actually meeting blog friend Lisa (An Abundance of Projects and Plans) in Leesburg, my son and I had gone there for lunch and a walk around the historic district.
Imagine my delight (much to my son's dismay) when I saw this.
Now what crafty person could possibly pass up a sign that reads "Fabric & Yarn" ???
Finch Sewing Studio operates from one of the historical homes in Leesburg.
Closing time was in 20 minutes so I could only do a quick walk-through.
I absolutely loved the framed doilies on the wall of the second floor landing.
Upstairs there were two rooms, nicely decorated, filled with yarn and fabric.
A very cozy and inviting atmosphere.
Definitely wish I would have had more time to browse.
But didn't want to delay closing time, so made my way to the counter with my purchases.
Hopefully I won't have any problem unwinding these hanks since they are made of linen.
Going to try my hand at some simple decorative embroidery.
If you are ever in Leesburg, Finch Sewing Studio can be found at the corner of  Loudoun Street and Wirt Street.
Happy crafting,

I smiled when I read your description about the dismay of your son knowing you were going to browse in the fabric shop..what a great looking shop, I love all the hoops with lace and embroidery. Looking forward to seeing what you create. Looks like a wonderful town. Xo

You made a beautiful selection. Do you know what you are going to make with the linen yarn?

Hi Tammy, what a nice place to visit. I would love to go there too. I try to visit crafty places on vacation when I can. I know you spend time in Colorado, have you ever been to the Lamb Shoppe in Denver? I think you would love it. How nice to meet up with Lisa too, she is a lovely person. Your trip has been lots of fun!

While your son may have been relieved that you only had 20 minutes to stop and shop I can imagine you would have loved to take longer :) I have not used linen fiber before. I will be interested in hearing how you like working with it. Wishing you a good creative week! xx

Yes, I bet your son was thrilled.
What a great store. Love the doilies and that wee sweater.
Hope you are well.

Did your son admit later that he enjoyed looking around at that cozy store? Those doilies are great, and what a perfect place to hang them. Makes you pause as you turn at the landing. What a shame that you weren't able to browse further. It looks like they had lots to admire there.

I love the wall display with embroidery hoops as frames! In your pictures it reminds me of a collection of treasures found in many walks along the shore when the tide has gone out.

That shop looks like it would be fun to browse and touch. I never can resist touching yarn in the shop. Thank you for sharing your photos with us, it makes me want to visit too.
Blessings,
Betsy

I've never seen so many embroidery hoops displayed on one wall at one time. Very effective. Thanks for the walk thru and taking us with you. :-)

oh Wow what a wonderful store you found-wish you could have had more time to look around-but at least you had the chance. what will make with the linen-I have some for weaving which I have yet to work with-I think its kinda tricky

After reading your post I want to go to Finch tomorrow. It is such a lovely shop. I'm glad you were able to visit it and I'm so happy it was what helped us meet!

Not having ever been to Leesburg it looks wonderful and full of amazing history. Love the shoppe you found. Those hooped doilies are fabulous. Linen yarn? It looks gorgeous.

Amy at love made my home said...

What a fabulous shop! Of course you had to explore that!! xx

Oliva Ohlson said...

Heaven...yarn and fabric in one place!!! The doilie embroidery hoop wall display...what a great idea!!! Beautiful historic town.

Kim Andersen said...

What a cool place - I could spend hours there!

I love old houses and buildings and what a great one to be a fabric and yarn store! I have not yet tried Quince & Co. yarns but they are always raved about as responsibly sourced. What are you going to make with those lovely skeins? The book looks very interesting! Drop cloth? Great idea as it is inexpensive for a big amount! I was looking into slip covers for furniture since it is so reasonably priced. What a great little shop.
