    I have a quilter friend going to New Orleans for a medical conference soon. Are there any quilt stores in New Orleans she could visit? Don't think she will have a car so it would have to be somewhere central. Thanks

    I'd suggest to have her google NO "quilt shops" or check the chamber of commerce in the area. This can get her started. I'm sure someone on the Board from near the city could answer. I have googled quilt shops several times and the sites are still up for places I know have closed so always call before going. Hope she gets some good results!

    To the best of my knowledge there is nothing down in the French Quarter, up Canal Street or around the river walk. You can ride the trolly but that mainly takes you up to the Garden district which is residential. I may be wrong, wouldn't be the first time, but I've spent a lot of time in New Orleans (pre Katrina and after) and haven't seen any quilt shops.

    Your friend may not be staying down there (around the French Quarter) though. These are a couple sites that come up in a Google search with a New Orleans address, but they may not be anywhere near where she's staying;

    I absolutely love New Orleans for so many reasons. I hope your friend has a wonderful time. Just tell her to stay on the beaten path and be careful after dark. ;)
