    Quilt Shops from Buffalo,NY to Toronto

    I will be visiting my sister in Buffalo and we thought we would go up to Toronto Labor Day weekend. What are your favorite shops to go to? We'll be hopping all the way to Toronto! I've searched the Internet for shops & sent out some emails to see if they're still open but I found some that didn't have a website or email address listed. I would appreciate your help. Thank you

    Here's a few stores that I try to hit when I am in the area. It's been a couple of years so I am not sure they are all still in business. Since fabric is so much more expensive in Canada and we have a cottage in eastern Ontario, I've never crossed the border at Niagara Falls to fabric hunt. I've heard there are some nice shops.

    Pine Grove Quilt Shop, Delaware Ave, Buffalo
    Quilt Farm, Colden
    Favorite Fabrics (an online store that let's you visit if you call ahead), Orchard Park
    Carriage Quilt Shop, East Aurora
    Aurora Sewing Center, East Aurora
    Marie's, Lockport
    Sew What in Williamsville

    Enjoy your trip and your visit with your sister!

    There is The Quilting Bee in Fonthill on HWY 20. IrishNY is right though fabric prices here are often quite a bit higher http://www.thequiltbee.com/ It's a nice store though and has lots of lovely things to buy

    The Quilt Farm and Favorite Fabrics are always on my list when I am in that area.

    IrishNY - all these shops are still open. NY & PA are finishing up Row by Row NY & Row by Row PA shop hops that ran from July to Labor Day weekend & covers both states. I will have to set up an apply for favorite fabrics. I'll be going to these shops on Thursday & Friday while my sister is working! Should keep me out of trouble!
    dnorton- this shop will be my first stop after crossing the border. I sent out 9 emails yesterday, so far one shop replied that she had closed and four weren't able to be delivered. Thank you all, looking forward to a fun filled vacation.
