I loved everything about the store, starting with their cool logo. And, they were still working away when I visited. They already have a huge display of vintage notions, trims and tools. And, they'll be getting more. I was drooling! They're going to feature yarn and fabric, along with vintage goodies, and local artist items. Local folks can also take a variety of crafty classes.

I love supporting local entrepreneurs, especially those with the crafty energy and passion of Allison and Marlo. Of course, I had to bring them a paper flower bouquet made with vintage patterns and tissue:
You can follow Baltimore Threadquarters via their Facebook page. And, if you're in the area, plan to visit. They're in a great location, right across the street from the new Enoch Pratt Library branch.
I promise you'll leave inspired and energized to create - I sure did!
