    I'm going to be in the Raleigh-Durham area next week for a business trip. In the off chance that I might have some free time are there any good quilt shops in the area?

    Whistle Stop Quilting Shop in Cary, North Carolina. Off of Kildare Farm Road. Nice shop. The owner is great. Just took a learning to quilt class from her. They are on facebook.

    I am glad you got a chance to stop there. They do have very nice fabrics.

    Wish Upon a Quilt is in Raleigh. That's my favorite. I can't think of the address right off, but they do have a website. Check for hours because Cathy closes early some days and is open later others. Thimble Pleasures is in Chapel Hill. There's a nice quilt shop in Wake Forest which is very close. There's a Bernina shop on HWY 70 which also carries fabric. There's also a quilt shop in Apex. These are just a few that I know of. There's another one in the Raleigh/Cary area that I think is called Sew Pleasures, but I'm not sure of the name and I don't know if Chris still has both shops or if she closed the Cary one. I think she still has both. I think there are probably quilt shops in Durham also. You might need to spend an extra day in Raleigh if you can. I do hope you get to go to at least one or two. If I can help you with directions, just PM me. I grew up in Raleigh and my parents still live there. I do hope you have a good time in the City of Oaks!

    I haven't been to this one. I hope I can go when we go to Raleigh for Easter.

    Unfortunately, I didn't have any free time while I was in Raleigh last wee. I have another business trip scheduled for the first week in June. Hopefully I can make some time then
