Sale: Nancy’s Sewing Basket

Sew cool on Queen Anne, for 33 years.

By Seattle Met Staff September 1, 2011

The ribbon room and button selection at Nancy’s Sewing Basket are pretty much legendary, and now is a great time to check them out.

Where: Nancy’s Sewing Basket

What: Open since 1978—that’d be long enough to remember several times when sewing was proclaimed cool and then not, and then cool again (and thus long enough to not care a wit about cool)—this Queen Anne institution is celebrating 33 years of ribbons, buttons, calico, taffeta, and general craftology with an anniversary sale. All fabric and patterns are 25 percent off, and there’s a chance to win a $50 gift certificate by guessing which of employee made which party-dress-and-fascinator display.

When: The sale starts Tuesday September 6 and runs through September 18.
