    Wink Visiting New Orleans for a day on cruise ship

    I will be visiting New Orleans for a day in March and would love to have a bit of fabric therapy whilst there! Can anyone advise on shops to visit? Many thanks.

    Welcome to the QB, Nettieb. Sorry I can't help you with your therapy. Sounds like a great time, though.

    Mes Amies (sp?) quilt shop is great. It's small but full of stuff and great staff. Last time I was there they has several FW's for sale also.

    Mes Amis is great and they've had some fabric on sale 35% off until she sells out. Also there is the Quilted Owl on Jefferson Hwy and Bright Hopes Quilt Shop on the northshore of Lake Pontchartrain (about a 45 minute drive from New Orleans but a lovely drive across the lake-$3 toll to get back). There's also a Hobby Lobby on the northshore. I think you'll be happy with all three. Nice ladies at all shops.

    That is a really fun city. Enjoy your trip.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.
