Gossypium: 1. Scientific name for the cotton plant. 2. A fabulous quilt store in Issaquah, WA, that I visited for the first time last month.
From Gossypium's web site http://www.gossypiumquilt.com/ :
"What is 'Gossypium?' It’s the scientific name for the cotton plant used to create our quality cotton fabrics. Gossypium also refers to a gathering place to create and catch up with old and new friends. Quilting is both an art form and a relationship between you and your fabric, and at Gossypium we strive to be an integral part of that relationship by supplying you with quality materials and personal support."
Since a picture is worth a thousand words, I'll just show some pictures from Gossypium. Enjoy!
Have a colorful day
