    When the snow is deep she can always travel south.

    It just so happened that the quilters from this small town had invited her to the fair. The fabric is all top quality & I think cut fabric is a final sale. She also goes to Quilt Retreats.

    I do remember seeing a traveling quilt store in a quilt magazine several years ago, I really like this idea, we have a lot of quilters up here where I live, and one creative quilter goes to market and has turned her quilting studio into a quilt shop, its only about 15 miles from me where my regular quilt shop is about 35 miles from me

    That sounds very interesting too. I think this is a terrific idea for people that have to travel so far for a quilt shop.

    The quilt bus is where she got her idea from. I hope she does well as the service is certainly needed in remote areas.

    :lol: Here in England, a 'semi' is shorthand for a 'semi-detached house' - ie, one of two houses joined to each other by a party wall, so when I read the title of your thread, I thought 'what's so strange about that?' And they say we speak the same language! :lol:

Just wondering if anyone else has seen this? This one travels around in Saskatchewan, Canada. She had beautiful fabric & lots of it. I will try & add a picture of the truck when my daughter is here to help me.
    Oh, gosh, that sounds so nice! Sounds like it would be beautiful to look into a trailer to see bolts and bolts of beautiful colours and patterns.

    I wish we had something like that here (it's 45 miles to the nearest fabric store here).

    I'm not so sure of that. The fabric in stores makes long trips by truck and so does mail order fabric, so it's built into the price of the product.

    This is just a more closely connected to how it gets to the quilter!
