This Sunday, my mom and I ventured into Mega Fabrics downtown Chicago. It's wall to wall bolts of fabric. Suiting, shirting, stretch taffeta, upholstery fabric, raincoat material, tweed, cotton, tulle, satin. They have everything. We meandered through the maze of the first floor, blown away by the sheer number of bolts on all the neat racks. Then ascending to the attic, we wound our way past piles and fabric landslides. Unorganized mountains of fabric filled the basement. The experience was overwhelming and, in the end, unfruitful but a fun adventure for a Sunday afternoon.
