    Red face Disappointed

    I haven't been to my favorite quilt store since mid December. I went there today to get fabric for my son's quilt and I managed to choose 17 fabrics and had them cut in just under 30 minutes. I didn't even get to purr and pet all the other pretty fabrics. I guess that is what I get for knowing exactly what I want and knowing that they will have it. Love Tater Patch Quilts in Merrill, Oregon! It took me longer to pick out five different fabrics for the backing at JoAnns - maybe that is because they don't carry Moda fabrics.

    Living 120 miles from a fabric store makes any time I get to spend in one wonderful!! I just always worry that I forgot something.

    That's a long way to drive to get a fabric fix. Good thing you can pet all 17 at home now.

    I shop online a great deal from USA fabric shops. I do so miss the foundling of the fabric before buying but a trip from here to there is a little extreme for a purchase. Oh for the day when e can feel fabric through the computer screen or smell new fabric.
    Finished is better than a UFO

    Nothing like being able to touch fabric. Think it's a great need in all of us quilters/sewers.

    Yes Tater Patch Quitls sure is a nice store, stop there once in a while on our way to Cederville,Ca.
    Freedom is costly and quilting keeps us busy...

    I know how it is to be so far from nearest fabric store---I'm in Lewistown,Mt and closest 1 is in Billings, Mt 125 miles away. Definitly make a day of shopping when I go!

    I can't remember just where it is, but I get fabric in MT from Glacier Quilts. You could check out the address online. They really treat you right

    If I lived 125 miles from a fabric store, I'd either use mail order or move! You must love your ranch! Please post pictures of it!
