Meg, The only thing I can think of is to "google" some towns where you will be and see if they have quilt stores. I do this quite often and have found many that way.
Hope this helps
Hugs, Ruth

Hey farmgirls: Most quilt shops have a book called "Quilter's Travel Companion. It's in its 11th edition. It lists quilt shops in every state. Take a look at it when you are in a quilt shop and locate those quilt shops, or best yet, buy the book. $19.95 by Chalet Publishion 2506 Robinson St. Colorado Springs, CO 80904

The best shop I have been to is in St. Cloud, MN, called Gruber's. They have an amazing selection of fabric and patterns, and even some yarn, punch needle, and rugg hooking items. When I visit home I always have to make a stop there!

There are a couple of great quilt shops in southeastern Arizona. Cow-Girl Up Quilts is located at 344 E. 4th Street in Benson; (520) 586-1616. The Squirrel's Nest is located at 4049 Camino Principal in Sierra Vista; (520) 417-1070. There is also another quilt store in Sierra Vista but I am not sure of the name and location. The Squirrel's Nest also carries yarn and has classes. Took a class on there locker hook rugs, which I totally enjoyed -- have made a a couple of rugs using cotton material and yarn. Would like to make one using both material and yarn together, a project that is on my "to do" list. Somehow my "to do" list keeps getting longer and longer!

We had a small quilt shop, well actually two. One moved to Arizona and the other store went out of business. These shops were not in our town but in the nearby city. Since I own a lot of fabrics, my sons created an online fabric store to sell my fabrics.

Hey Carole!

I was just going to mention Cowgirl-Up Quilts in Benson! LOL!! What a great store she has! I have signed up to take a class on making a fabric wallet. I also LOVE The Squirrel's Nest! I have been going there ever since she was in town in Sierra Vista. Whenever I need really good yarn or knitting needles, I have to make a special trip to Sierra Vista. It's a good thing I don't live closer to Sierra Vista, I could spend WAAAY too much money in there!

I know of a quilt shop that is not even in a town. It is called "Needle in a Haystack" and is located near Severy, Kansas on Highway 96. There is a big silo next to the shop. It is about an hour from my place so I've only stopped there a couple times on my way to Missouri or coming back from there. It is a good size shop with lots of fabric, etc.

Checkerberries Quilt Shop
997 First NH Turnpike
Northwood, NH 03261

Found this little place while driving through some of the countryside of New Hampshire. It was darling! and they had a great variety as well as sample projects and quilts and stuff I hadn't seen anywhere else before. I bought some pieces of fabric and enjoyed just looking around. The staff were lovely!

Their website is at www.checkerberriesquiltshop.com

The Woolen Willow in Williamstown, WV...it was featured in a back issue of BHG Quilting Magazine. It is a really cute shop and I love the fabrics...I can spend hours in there!

We could use some quilt shops around here. We live outside of Pittsburgh Pa. Thank goodness for online shops.

If you are ever in North Idaho stop by Mrs. Sew and Sews Quilt store. St.Maries Idaho. When they say that great things come in small packages they were talking about Mrs. Sew and Sews.

If anyone gets to Ohio ... there are 2 very sweet shops near me.
Forever in Stitches is in Bluffton, Ohio on Main St.
Heavenly Stitches is in Lima, Ohio on Greeley Chapel Rd.
Both are great little hometown shops.

Oh my gosh.... I have been there. It is fantastic - you are right.... it is stacked from end to end and from floor to ceiling. I love it. Such great memorys... I sure miss PA.


Judy Kelius, one my favorite antique quilt dealers, writes, "that a new find that is not to be missed is Obie's Country Store on Route 23 in Goodville, not far from the intersection with Route 625 (about a mile from Shady Maple towards Morgantown). Other than some penny candy and a few odds & ends, it is crammed (and I mean jammed!) with fabric. There are also new quilts for sale. This has the largest selection of preprints and novelty fabrics that I've ever seen plus lots of quality quilt fabrics. The challenge is finding what you want - there is a LOT of fabric in this place. Prices are much cheaper than the quilt shops. Check it out!"

New to the Sisterhood so I am now adding one of my favorite small town quilt shops - Quilts & Kreations in South Amherst, OH (on Route 113). Big shop, lots of neat stuff and great classes.

After much frustration trying to find a selection of organic fabrics I could touch... I decided to open my own Fabric Studio.

I have a basic believe that fabric is what you make of it. My shop is filled with organic and traditional fabrics and patterns for quilts, aprons, and garments. I also make and repurpose products and do repairs for people!

So if any of you are ever traveling I95 or I495 in the area of Amesbury MA come find me! I am only a few miles from both highways in a very alive little downtown.

The Quilted Raven (www.quiltedravenalaska.com)and The Quilt Tree (www.quiltree.com) in Anchorage, Alaska are both worth visiting if you're in the Anchorage area. The Quilted Raven is smaller but it's in downtown Anchorage and offers more "Alaskana" products that would make good souvenirs/gifts. The Quilt Tree has a huge selection of fabrics and has a good sized selection of yarn (in their Yarn Branch "mini-store") and offers lots of classes--that's where I learned to applique and knit. I hear that The Far North Yarn Company (www.akfnyc.com) is a good yarn shop but I haven't visited yet.

Thank you everyone!

I'm planning to head out on a roadtrip soon so I wrote down the names of many of these delightful-sounding shops!
I can't wait!

I haven't found a favorite quilting store here in So Cal, but there is a great fabric store in Anaheim called M&L Fabrics. Very dangerous place for me! I was just there on Sunday :)
I did do some shop hopping while I was in Alaska, and my favorite so far was Quilt Kits Alaska in Kenai. I had done a wolf quilt a while back, but the included fabrics made it look more like a Malamute. She had a kit with fabrics of her own choosing and it came out gorgeous, very wolfish. Plus I got to experience a real Alaskan earthquake at the store, and Mt. Redoubt was smoking on the horizon.

My favorite quilt shop is in Dahlonega, called Magical Threads. My next favorite is in Seattle , Undercover Quilts. They get fabric that as much as I love my shops in Georgia we cant get. That is why Quilt shows are so cool. You get to see what every one else has. I also like Georgia Sewing and Quiling in Buford Ga. There are others that are good too. But those are my favorites.
