Lil Red Hen in Paola, KS. It's not a huge shop but I love the selection of fabrics, that the owner will order any notion or pattern you need and the all around fun, happy spirit of the shop.

Martina said...

That is an easy one, lol! It is the Cotton&Color Shop. The people there are so friendly, have great advice and the shop is full with yummy fabrics at (for Switerland) resonable prices! Yay!

Betsy said...

Quilts on plum lane in Dade city florida. Very quaint and has lots of primitive style projects

My favorite quilt shop is Mariner's Compass in Bath Maine. It is just so inspiring. Thanks

We really don't have a local quilt shop. The one I enjoy going to is Front Porch Quilts in Prairie Du Chein, WI. It is a cute little house with fabric in every room. There is lots of sample quilts and projects to look at and get ideas of fabric combinations. Thanks for the great giveaway.

Sherry VF said...

Well, I like Creekside Quilting because I can always find something I need/want there. They also collect scraps and deliver them to an organization that makes quilts for the homeless. svonfumetti at yahoo dot com

It's hard to choose just one favorite quilt shop, but I love visiting Grubers in Waite Park MN--tons of fabrics to choose from, zillions of inspiring samples and a great staff!

Quilt Market looks like sew much fun. Someday......

Mary Jane Link said...

It looks as though all your very hard work left a lot of very happy attendees and quite a few of us jealous that we could not attend!

Sarah said...

Well, I don't actually know about any local quilt shops; I don't have the budget for buying fabric, so I don't go to shops, I find scraps or use what I've been given. I have been to some wonderful shops in Bird-In-Hand, PA, though!

Mary Jane Link said...

The Quilted Forest! Besides being a great shop, I love to walk my twins there in the double stroller and their spacious store allows plenty of space for us to stroll around while we shop!

Better not forget the great service!

Judy1522 said...

My favorite LQS is Quilter's Corner Store in Beaverton, Oregon. It is a small shop but the owner has done a great job of stocking the store with fabulous fabrics. She also will take suggestions for fabrics which you would like to see in the store and does follow up on buying it. There are great project kits that are quick to make and her prices are very reasonable.

Beth said...

My favorite local quilt shop is Momma Made It in Longview, WA. It is a shop devoted to Civil War repros and it has the most wonderful vibe. The fabrics are gorgeous, and displayed really well. There are samples all over the store along with books that appeal to every stage of quilter. Sharon, the owner, and her staff are friendly, knowledgeable, and really welcoming. All in all, a delightful place to be and a real asset to our community.
