Shop Stories: Batiks Etcetera and Sew What Fabrics (Virginia)Posted on December 27th, 2011 Teresa No commentsTweet
Nestled into downtown Wytheville, Batiks Etcetera and Sew What Fabrics sits in a house built in the 1840s. Having housed families and travelers, it now holds 4,400 sq. feet of fabrics, notions and patterns.
When Carol Britt started her company 29 years ago with fashion fabrics and notions, but has since reached out and expanded in ways she never expected. With the addition of Batiks Etcetera and designing her own patterns, Britt stays busy. But she loves it. “I am tenacious…and am always looking to chage things up.”
And that she does. Her shop, based in a less populated area, she’s at the intersection of two major interstate highways, making it a perfect stop for traveling quilters and a must-see for batik lovers.
Should you be passing along I-81 or I-77 in Virginia, take the time to venture in Wytheville and pay a visit to a shop you’ll be glad you stopped for.
