    Coming to a city near you!

    Hey everybody out there in "Quilting Board"land! Hope you all are enjoying this time of year! I have frequented this board for the past 3months, and am somewhat addicted. So, I thought I would try something on here. I am a flight attendant, and therefore, have the opportunity to visit several cities across the U.S. It gets really boring sitting around a hotel all day long, so I thought that some of the nice people on this board may have some suggestions on his/her favorite quilt shop? I would love to be able to start visiting more while working. I can't wait to see the responses I get! Thanks in advance! Kevin

    You should see some of the KC area shops. There is a nice one is less summit about 45 min from the air port.
    when life gets you down go and talk with a little kid. They will help you work out even the worst problems with their simple logic.

    Kevin, I'm about an hour south of Chicago. My favorite LQS is Top Shelf Quilts in Frankfort; very friendly & helpful. If you're making a road trip to the south boonies, try them, B & J quilts in Kankakee, Roberts in Joliet. A couple of others west of I55 along I80 are The Fabric Center in Morris, D's Quilt Shop in Peru & Quilters' Garden in Princeton.

    Dallas/Fort Worth TX has too many to mention. Quilt Country in Lewisville is a favorite as is Happiness is Quilting in McKinney, Quilter's Dream in Colleyville and Cabbage Rose is Fort Worth. enjoy!

    I have had good luck looking in the phone book yellow pages.

    We live in a very small place (138 registered voters) about 1 to 1 1/2 hrs to any town and I always try to find a phone book; however phone books seem to be getiing a bit scarce anymore.

    Good luck on your quilt store visits!
