Quilt Shop Horror Stories-The Other Side of The Coin

Now that I've told you about the worst quilt shop I've ever been to, maybe we should visit the other side of the coin. Do you have a favorite quilt shop? I have been to so many wonderful shops, that it would be nearly impossible to pick one favorite, but one that is near and dear to me is one that the rest of the quilting world will be hearing about very soon!

One of my picks for best quilt shop will be getting the recognition it deserves in the next issue of Quilt Sampler. I am so excited for them since it is the shop that introduced me to quilting in the first place. I am so lucky that the first shop I had ever been to, was such a wonderful place to learn and shop! The staff is an amazing group of women and the owner is just about the smartest, classiest woman I have ever met.

Sadly, another of my favorite shops will be closing, but until the "official" announcement is made, I can't say anything else about it.

I can't wait to get the new issue of Quilt Sampler, so I can say, "That's where I shop!".


  1. The other side of the coin: I love the Attic Window Quilt Shop in the Grand Rapids, Michigan area. Of course, I blog for them so that goes without saying. But, really, it is a large shop with lots of space for classes, a variety of fabrics, patterns, books and teachers, and Chris (the owner) and her staff are very friendly and helpful. I hope when you are in that area you will stop in and say Hi.

  2. I can't wait to get a copy of Quilt Sampler and hear your insights on this store, as well as your other favorite stores.

    But I'm sad to hear that you will have a store near you going out of business. We all need to try to buy more, take a class, and essentially help support our favorite stores in these economic times.


  3. Quilt Sampler is my all-time favorite magazine. I can not wait for this next one to come out and have been looking forward to it.
    I too have had a quilt horror local one is not all that great.
    Can't wait to see the shop that got ya hooked!
