My DH and I just got home from traveling 5,000 miles. My Quilters Travel Companion is the FIRST thing I pack every time we take a trip. Don't remember how many shops we visited but I 'don't leave home without it'.
Before every trip I also go to their web site and put in each state we will be going through to update the book. If a shop has closed or has a new address it will give that info & I just jot it in the ad. The cheapest place I have seen it sell is in the Chlotilde catalog. Sounds like a wonderful trip; have fun & buy lots of fabric!!
