Today’s fabrics are more original and innovative than ever; many are computer designed and digitally produced. This offers creatives working with such fabrics a lot of options for their crafts. It also encourages simple fabric souvenir collectors to go looking for interesting and stimulating swatches. Some shops have turned into tourist stops and are taking their unique locations to encourage customers.
