Learn, Share, Shop. MAKE. In Kansas City

Calling all sewers, stitchers and fiber enthusiasts of Kansas City! There is a new shop in town and I want to yell about it from the rooftops and cry out into the streets. Alas, I barely have an outdoor voice so I'll start by sharing the news here.

Through the magic of Instagram, I recently connected with Elizabeth Nelson, the owner of Modern Makers. She is a Landscape Architect & maker (turned small business owner) who has opened the Kansas City fabric shop that we have  all been waiting for. 

Kansas City has a rich fiber arts community but in recent years, there has been a significant gap in access to high quality fabric and supplies that only independent sellers can provide. The products that Elizabeth carries are top notch and beyond anything that can be found at the big box stores in the suburbs. 

Seeing Elizabeth's daughter play with a customer's child in the play area brought back such fond memories of going to the fabric store with my Mom as a child. It's evident that so much thought is put into each square foot of the shop. You leave with a sense of joy in the products offered and pride that our city can support small business owners. 

Classes and workshops are offered in the classroom that is located in the back of the shop. You can register for a variety of sewing and quilting classes that are taught by local artists.  I'm so pleased to announce that starting in November, a new series of Hey Paul Studios classes (by way of Eat Drink Stitch) will be offered as well!
