    I live on Cujoe Key. The last time I was in Ben Franklin in November they didn't have much fabric. The Seam Shoppe is about it. Cindy, the owner is very nice. Their new store, across from the old store, is nice.

    To see Key Dear go to No Name Key. You can see them any time of the day, the best time is in the morning or dusk. You have to go to Big Pine Key to get to No Name Key. The No Name Pub has great smoked fish dip and wonder pizza. I have not been to the Big Pine Key Flea Market in a while. They should be starting back up.

    Love Bahia Honda State Park. The best beach in the keys.

    Somewhere close to the Theater of the Sea, which is nice, is a great craft place I forget the name. Sorry.

    Hope you enjoy your time in the keys.

    We have a friend who lives on Cujoe, his name is Bob Boyd. He and his friend play island music in Key West. Do you know him?

    We went to the Seam Shoppe when we were on our honeymoon last September. We stayed on Isla Morada in the "Jetson's" house. We had a wonderful time. We went Theatre of the Sea and had a great time!

    If you're still in the keys and haven't found it yet, there's a yarn shop in Key West within walking distance from where the cruise ships dock. When I visited there in 2011, we had to walk up some steps to get to it. It was near an eating establishment I think. I think it was on the main street in Key West.

    We will be leaving tomorrow on our vaca. Since I like to knit and crochet I"ll check out the yarn shop and will keep a lookout for fabric shops on the other keys driving down.It's raining here now and looks like it will continue for a couple more days. So we're looking forward to the sunshine.

    If you are in Key Largo the first Saturday of the month we have a guild meeting at the Library, you'll meet lots of quilters and get lots of ideas of where to go and what to see, 10:00 amish (island time)

    Gosh, I would love that, but we will be back home by then. Thanks for the invitation though.

    I'd recommend a visit to the Mel Fisher museum to see incredible gold and silver treasure from the wreck of the Atocha if you get a chance.
