Hey there, fabric loving friends! Today’s Shop Shout Out takes us to a sunny spot at a delightful fabric and quilt shop called superbuzzy, located in the beautiful coastal town of Ventura, California.

Back in 2018, I met Kelly, the owner of superbuzzy, at QuiltCon Pasadena. Not only did she showcase some of my quilts in her booth, but she also started carrying my patterns in her shop – and she’s still stocking them in her shop today! Fast forward to this spring, and I finally found myself with the perfect opportunity to pop into superbuzzy in person before heading a conference.

The first thing that struck me about superbuzzy was the incredibly welcoming atmosphere. Kelly has created a space that feels like a fun hangout space – perfect for browsing and soaking up all the quilting and sewing inspiration. Whether you’re a seasoned quilter with a mountain of fabric or a curious newbie just starting out, you’re sure to feel right at home here and hang out for a while! (You’ll probably also find something that you’ll want to acquire and bring home with you too!)

A Feast for the Fabric-Loving Soul

Now, to the fun part – the fabric! superbuzzy boasts a really great selection of quilting cotton prints and solids, with some truly unique finds you won’t see everywhere else. There are prints and solids you would expect to find at a modern quilt shop, but superbuzzy also curates beautiful fabrics and supplies from Japan and around the world. In addition to loads of yardage, they carry an array of pre-cut fabrics, bundles, and kits to jumpstart your next project.

They even have a treasure trove of fabric panels for those who love statement pieces, and a collection of yarn and embroidery floss for the multi-crafty quilter.yarn and fabric in a quilt shop embroidery supplies shelves in a quilt shop display of bag making kits and embellishment in a store

Speaking of fun, guess who I bumped into Holly Marsh, who is a friend (and fellow creative) of a mutual friend. We’ve heard about each other for years and it wasn’t until browsing at superbuzzy that we met in person.
