Juneau's quilt shop, Changing Tides was a wonderful stop on my quilt shop tour! Located on the second floor of the Senate Mall Building in downtown Juneau, this shop has a lot to explore and convenient benches outside the shop for my patient husband. I found tons of Alaskan fabric (yardage, fat quarters, half yards, special sets, panels, etc.), patterns, tools, art quilting supplies, notions, needlework patterns, and "Made in Alaska" items like cookbooks, jewelry, pincushions, and more! Lots of special items like Barbara Lavavellee fabric, panels, and mugs too! The owner, Jan Nardone, designs for several local artists including Barbara Lavallee and since Barbara's stuff is printed in Juneau, Changing Tides has the largest selection and the newest designs! I also found some great art quilting supplies like bundles of special couching threads and yarns!
Getting to know Changing Tides
In 1994, Changing Tides opened for business in Skagway, AK originally as a comprehensive needlework shop. They moved to Juneau in 2005. The shop is celebrating it's 20th year in business and it was certainly a lot of fun to talk with the Jan and employee, Alicia! We talked about art quilting, the lovely raven batik fabric bundles they have, and shared stories about getting our work seen. I especially loved the work they shared that was hanging up around the shop and the beautiful appliqué block of the month they are running!
Take a look at this great shop:
Make sure to stop in whenever you visit Juneau, Alaska or if you can't get there in person, check out Changing Tides' website! I hear a new website is in the works and should be going live soon! For now you can see a lot of the great products they have to offer and even place an order over the phone, by email, or by mail!
