If you ever make it to St. Cloud, MN, the shop you want is called Grubers. It is wonderful and the people are very friendly. If you are looking for fabric, (and who isn't?), there is a place in Brooklyn Park, Mn. that is quite overwhelming. The name is S.R. Harris and it is about 40 minutes from the Mpls./St. Paul airport. Bring an extra suitcase, lol.
