Textile Tuesday


Look what I found open in Juneau, Alaska! it was a cute shop called Changing Tides. 




It was brimming full of lovely fabric and many samples. I liked that they showcased many things "Alaska". 

Here is the one piece I bought. 
 Here was another store in Skagway. Loved the name of the shop. Sadly it was closed.

And towels are textiles, right? 
I forgot how much fun it is to come back to your room to find a towel animal!








It was such a fun week and the weather was great for an Alaskan cruise. We didn't get rained on one time!

And one of the highlights was seeing Glacier Bay. 



It was a terrific week.

If you want to see more of the active excursions we did, check out my other blog HERE

Love to you all!

  1. Those towel creatures made me giggle. So cute!
    I have heard that the fabric shops in Alaska really specialize in Alaskan themes--but I have never been there to see for myself.
    The scenery is spectacular. How nice that the weather cooperated. Alaska is on my bucket list!

  6. Love seeing these photos. We did an Alaskan cruise in 2004, but I didn't get a chance to visit any quilt shops while there. I got to walk by a Skagway shop but didn't have time to stop if we wanted to make it to our scheduled shore excursion. I would do that trip again in a heart beat. The scenery was so wonderful and the cruise ships treat you like royalty. Loved the different towel animal every day!

  13. We went several years ago but it was late May and the weather was AWFUL!!! Need a re-do on that cruise but in July next time! I went into the Rushin Tailor when we visited--cute shop! Can't believe they're not open every day that a ship is in port!
