UCC has a nice selection of higher end fabrics, and home spun yarns. They are less heavy on scrapbooking supplies than some of the specialty crop shops that I have seen - but that is good. What they have is a lot of space, equipment, and a well stocked library for information. They run classes. The new fall schedule will be out in a few weeks for classes starting from September.
The Swap-o-rama-rama was tremendous fun. I did nothing that I had planned! Instead I helped a bunch of people make fully lined with an inside pocket tote bags from assorted skirts, pants and (mostly) shirts. They chose the combinations and I sewed. I also zig zagged over iron on applique. I think next time, I'm going to try to do a jeans-into-skirts station.
Jayn very busily created a new soft toy, and spent a lot of time doing needle felting, making a dear little scene with a tree and a figure.
