    Should I thank each person for a reply? What is the correct etiquette here? Thank you for your welcome.

    My research tells me- Feb 9 and Mar10, 2013 best nights (dark moon) to see the lights. Could you please ask your Granddaughter do they get a good showing in this months? Yes it is going to be very cold, may as well get the full experience of Alaska and my moneys worth. Thanks x

    Lived in Alaska for 54 years before moving to Florida in 2007- Your picking the coldest time of the year for a visit. Northern lights can be a hit or miss, nights have to be clear and then they are usually very cold. As for quilt shops, Anchorage has a few (look in yellow pages) Kenai has the "Kenai Sewing Center" which was packed to the gills last time I was there. They have just too much to drool over. Small store in Seward (where I had lived) there was one in Palmer & Wasilla, Eagle River, but who knows what has changed since I lived there. Enjoy your visit & welcome to the board.

    The Northern Lights if out will be seen best not in the city near street lights. If you are in a nice unlite spot you will see the beautiful light "show" much better.
    Meanwhile enjoy the show below...

    When i visied Alaska in early February several years ago, there was only 15 minutes of sunlight a day. The days were a gray cloudy color temperatures were 72 degrees below zero and they had at least 4 to 5 feet of snow on the ground. It is beautiful but as others have stated dress very warm and remember to plug in your vehicle when not in use.

    Blessed be

    My DD had a contract job in Bethel, Alaska for three months. She will never go to such a remote area again to have to live there but said Anchorage was nice to visit.
    Got fabric?
