    I was in TX and this woman told me about this great shop in MI that has rooms of batiks. But of course I have forgotten the name and place except for MI.

    Want to do a little weekend and thought that would be a great place.

    Anybody have an idea what LQS I am talking about?

    TIA

    No, but I'll be watching!! Hopefully this shop is just over the border and not all the way in the UP.

    Found this site which lists a bunch of shops in MI. Not sure how recent it is ....


    http://www.quiltvisionusa.com/MichiganQuiltShops.html

    And on this page I saw the following that showed large selection of batiks on their advertising ....

    http://www.milesofstitches.com/

    http://www.quiltsnstuff.net/

    of course it could even be one of the others and they just don't mention batiks.

    And then there is this store which mentions 6000 bolts!!!

    http://www.countrystitches.com/

    Where are you at in Illinois??

    Woodstock. I was some lists too. I thought it might be the 6000 bolt store.

    I go to Willowbrook now to get batiks.

    Sew Elegent in Port Huron? I think (but don't know for sure) that this one is bigger than Country Stitches. Seems (seams ;-) ) like it is.

    hope you find out the name of the quilt shop

    maybe you should make a list of quilt shops in Michigan and save a list on your my pages

    I am working on shops for Indiana on my pages also

    Can't think of it at the moment, but I believe there are a few big shops in the Saginaw area.
