I was working at a LQS this winter for a few days.....I couldn't believe how many people came in and told us the quilt shops in their area had closed. Southern Oregon has lost a lot of shops!!!! I don't know about the northern part of Oregon. According to one woman, 5 shops in the Klamath Falls area has closed in the the last 5 yrs. and another told me the sw coast is down to 1 shop!!!!
