Just found out today that the quilt shop in my small town of Chanhassen MN is closing and the Mill End Textiles in MN are also closing. I loved going into my quilt shop and talking quilts and patterns and looking, feeling and buying all their beautiful fabric. I also visited their Bernina machines and fantasized about owning one. The Mill End Textiles were a wonderful place to go for fabrics. Heaps of them all piled on tables. There is still a nice quilt shop in Shakopee MN that I can go to. Farther away, but I will make the drive once in a while. I don't mind buying on line, but you can't get to feel the fabrics and sometimes the color isn't exactly what you wanted. Are the brick and morter stores going away due to the internet?
