Best quilting shop of the #resistance: FABRIC SMART

So you’ve never quilted? Hell, it’s the new knitting — which, as we all know, is the new cocaine. But Fabric Smart isn’t any old quilting shop — they’re a kick-ass fabric store with classes, camaraderie and — since the days immediately following the 2016 presidential election, the quilts in their windows have quietly preached resistance. The first quilt? A safety pin. And the quilts have only gotten better since then. 5401 Gulfport Blvd., Gulfport. 727-914-8850. —CS
