    San Antonio, TX quilt shop

    I will be in San Antonio, TX this weekend visiting my daughter. Any suggestions for LQS? Especially interested in Asian prints right now.
    Thanks!

    I go to Memories By the Yard on Mainland (off Bandera outside Loop 410). They have a good selection of fabric (asian included). The people that work there are very friendly and helpful. I know there are a few other quilt shops in San Antonio but I have not been to them. There is also a great shop in New Braunsfel called The QuiltHaus which is really quite good and worth checking out. Have a great weekend in San Antonio and enjoy your fabric shopping.

    Memories by the Yard, 8015 Mainland Dr, 210-520-4833, www.memoriesbytheyard.com

    Three others are listed that do not have ads in the book so don't know web info, etc.

    Las Colchas
    San Angel Folk Art Gallery

    Hope that helps!
    So many quilts, so little time.

    Good friends are like quilts - they age with you, yet never lose their warmth.

    Thanks, Everyone! Lots of choices! I was in Kerrville 2 years ago and didn't even think about them having a quilt shop. So many choices, so little time!

    I don't know if people check the posts they've replied to, but I visited Memories by the Yard and they closed the doors before we got out of there. They had western fabric, go figure. I couldn't find any in Atlanta, GA, but they have it in Texas. Once again, bought fabric without a pattern. They were very patient as we dragged out countless bolt trying to coordinate and come up with a pattern on the spot.
    We also visited the Quilt Haus. Lovely store with a kitchen store on one side and a card shop on the other. We had a great time! Thanks for the referrals!
