Hey Donna I love Magical Threads in Dahlonega also. I don't live close enough to go very often though. I can go if we go riding for the day up that way. Do you know of any other shops close by?

I went to my first quilt shop this past Sunday and it was so much fun! It was The Quilted Hill in Yamhill, OR. Absolutely gorgeous setting, beautiful fabrics, very helpful owner and a perfect day.

I was talking with a couple ladies from church on Sunday about wanting to try quilting so they invited me out that afternoon, helped me pick a pattern and fabric and gave me hints on cutting. Now to get it all cut and put it together. Such fun!

One good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain.

Country Lady Quilt Shop in Roseburg, OR. She has a huge batik section, which is the only section I even look at! But I know that she has lots of other fabrics, too. She offers classes by various people. Has books and other quilting paraphernalia.

Sylvia's Quilt Depot off the Parks Highway between Palmer and Wasilla, AK. I was just there and her batik section is getting bigger and bigger. That's where my mom bought the fabric for my birthday quilt. Sylvia offers classes (my mom has taught some) and does some block of the month quilts, etc.

I'm so glad you posted this thread. Having just moved here a couple of years ago, I was not aware of a quilt shop that is in the next town over, but my interest in quilting is coming back -- Sew Together in Richmond, Michigan. I peeked in the windows the other night when we were out to dinner at the restaurant across the street. Can't wait to visit.

My closest quilt shop is in Anderson. It's called "The Quilt Shoppe". They have a great selection of fabrics, but they seem to have a water problem. The last time I was in the store, there was a heavy, heavy musty smell. I bought some fabric, hoping that the smell would come out with washing. So far it hasn't...Any ideas?

There's a quilting/sewing shop that just happens to be owned by the mother of two of my good friends from high school - Rainbow Fabrics - in Wray, CO ... I doubt anyone would ever be going there as a tourist, but if you live in the area it is a great little shop. They also sponsor an annual quilt show.

I like the fact that quilt shops pop up everywhere, its fun to explore what each one has to offer. For vacation souvenirs now I buy fat quarters from a quilt shop in the town we are staying. I prefer small businesses than the big stores. The staff is friendly and they know there stock/product so are really great at helping you find something. Its fun to do because when I use the fabric in a quilt I can remember the fun from the trip. My favorite quilt shop so far is Quilter's Cove in Newport, Oregon. Simply because I hit the motherload of lighthouse and beach themed fabric.

Just a little 'Heads~Up' to you ladies in the Inland NW of Washington,,,
The Buggy Barn, Reardon WA. is having their annual Quilt Show in August... it is a 2-day event with the most
fab-u-los hand made quilts by quilters from all over...and they have a sweet little 'vendors corner' in the barn... The event is held on Aug. 24/25 so if you are out this way,,,or want to be,,, you have to check it out.
It is on Tramm road, in Reardon, WA... but you can google: Buggy Barn Quilt Shop for all the info.
I do believe there is/was an article on the 2 sisters (owners) & how the Buggy Barn originated in a past MJF mag...if memory serves me...

In the mean time,,, keep on laughing & stitching! It makes for a happy heart. (gb)

There is a fun online challenge called FabShopHop where you look for the bunny at each of the shops to be eligible for a prize drawing. Lots of fun getting to know quilters and their shops. www.fabshophop.com

Thanks everyone for mentioning quilts shops. I love exploring for quaint quilt shops. It's so inspirational.

If anyone is headed to way up north of New York state, more specifically Lake Champlain - Village of Rouses Point, I own a quaint quilt shoppe called Fibre Junction. I specialize in 19th century reproduction, primitive/folk art, Retro, hand dyed wool and batik fabrics. If you do stop by, let me know that you are a Farm Girl! I enjoy meeting up with my fellow sisters!

I am not sure how I missed this one...But here I am...and I LOVE the shop Loose Threads in Milton WI...it was an old school. It gives me such comfort to go there and pick fabrics- and I spend way way too much money there. It is right on hwy 26....great shop, gals working there and plenty of parking!! This year will be classes for me there too.... fun fun fun!!!

Whenever I go on vacation and are in small towns I always visit their quilt shops. Two shops that I found so charming, helpful, fully stocked, up-to-date merchandise and had an extra fun time at are:

The Icehouse Quilt Shop
509 Norway
Grayling, MI 49738
Phone: 989-348-4821
http://www.theicehousequiltshop.com

Such sweet people. They really enjoy helping you and let you look around for a long time if you are browsing.

Quilting Bee
120 S. Santa Fe
Salina, KS 67401
Phone: 785-823-9376
What a staff of fun women. So kind and it was great conversation!

These downtowns are rural and are like stepping back in time. They have great places to explore also. Thank you for this topic! Annie

There is also Quilting by the Bay in Panama City, FL. I was trying to talk them into opening a shop in my small town called Quilting Among the Pines.

Beary Patches Quilt Shop
214 East Harford Street
Milford, Pennsylvania US 18337



This is a great shop I found while traveling out of NYC to visit a relative.
I use http://www.QuiltingHub.com because I trust it's quilt shop information more than any other source.
Try it to find quilt shops either in a place or along a travel route.
Or use the search page http://www.quiltinghub.com/Find to find events, guilds, shops hops, sales, and more.


Enjoy!
