Join the American Sewing Guild for this one day trip to the Minneapolis area for a day of checking out Treadle Yard Goods (St. Paul) and SR Harris Fabric Outlet (Brooklyn Park). Bring along comfortable shoes for shopping to find that “just right” piece of fabric!

The day begins with motor coach pickups at Altoona and Ames before making a quick stop at the Albert Lea Travel Center before making our way into Minneapolis! Please bring along a finished item of apparel or a current project that is being created to share with everyone during a “show & tell” time while traveling. A morning snack will be served enroute to the travel center.

Our first stop will be at Treadle Yard Goods which is a full service fabric store specializing in natural fiber fabrics for apparel as in silk, wool, oilcloth, linen, rayon, cotton & bridal laces. An amazing array of notions, patterns, buttons (from around the world) are also available. Lunch (on your own) will be available from food spots around the area of Treadle Yard Goods included in the two and half hour visit here.

Our next stop will be SR Harris Fabric Outlet which has been in business since 1966 and housed in a warehouse of 30,000 sq ft. They offer decorator fabrics, apparel, quilting cottons trims for your couture creation! Also carried is home decor fabric for upholstery and drapery products. They also carry a plethora of stuffing for projects that need structure. A bit over two hours will be spent at SR Harris Fabric Outlet.

Once everyone has “shopped til they dropped” a catered evening meal (included) will be shared at Bachman’s Floral. Sit back and relax while enjoying this outside “but inside” garden area. A little time for shopping before everyone bids farewell to the Minneapolis area!
