When I heard that Whipstitch was opening this weekend in West Midtown, I got ridiculously excited. I've perused the Etsy shop before, but didn't realize a brick and mortar location was opening so soon or so nearby! Even though I already have yards and yards of fabric stashed away, I had to go check it out.
The shop is located in the recently renovated Brick Works area on Marietta Street, next to the very yummy Toscano and Sons.
Mmm there was this adorable popcorn cart outside!
Love his handmade shirt and her Liberty bag.
On Friday, they kicked things off with a viewing of Handmade Nation. In the lull before the documentary, I ooh-ed and ahh-ed over the assortment of brightly hued patterns and prints. They carried so many of my favorites!! A vast collection of Alexander Henry, Anna Maria Horner, and Robert Kaufman among many other amazing designer prints.
Bolts and bolts!
I loved this piece on display. A perfect way to showcase some incredible prints!
The displays were very eye-catching.
I was also super excited to hear that sewing, quilting, and serging classes would be offered. I have been dying to invest in an industrial machine but haven't had a good enough reason to, until now.
Ooh and the sewing lounge itself is super cozy. This feels like the perfect place to go to feel inspired and have access to all the materials and wisdom you need to complete a project!
I suppose a post wouldn't be complete without a reference to what I wore yesterday. Here is an outtake I decided to be brave and post for you, loyal fans.

If you are in the area, you should pop by! The shop is everything I could have ever asked for. Check it out while they're in full swing this weekend!
