    You must hit Rosie's Calico Cupboard. Huge shop, lots and lots of fabrics, good prices.
    Try Googling quilt shops in San Diego.

    I know, I know, I know, choose me!
    Cozy Quilt Shop in El Cajon. 2940 Jamach Rd. Suite H.

    I went yesterday and as soon as I walked in I heard two Hello's. They have always greeted me when I walked through the door and although it has been several months since I had been there they called me by name. The staff are all friendly, knowledgable and if they dont have the answer to my question, they know who to ask or where to go , for the answer. :lol: :lol:

    Tell them about the Quilting Board. I mentioned it yesterday and I am sure they would love to know who you are. Welcome to our neck of the woods. I live in Spring Valley. ;)

    Both of the ones mentioned are great. I also liked Quilter's Choice in Chula Vista when I visited.

    Neither one of these are real close to Shelter Island.

    Rosie's Calico Cupboard is at 71st on El Cajon Blvd.
    Cozy Quilt Shop is in Rancho San Diego on Jamacha Rd.

    http://www.rosiescalicocupboard.com
    7151 El Cajon Blvd. San Diego 92115 (approx. 20 min.)

    http://www.cozyquilt.com
    2940 Jamacha Rd. El Cajon 92019 (approx. 30 min.)

    Here are the links. You could do mapquest to get driving directions from your hotel.

    Where will you be staying? Is this your first time in San Diego?

    We are staying at the Bay Club Hotel and Marina. We have been to San Deigo about 3 times but it was about 10 years ago. We are going to the Zoo and then I want to go to Rosie's for fabric and since it will be my birthday, thats my gift. After that its the beach and just relax.

    I just did a mapquest:

    Rosie's Calico Cupboard is 14.08 miles away, 22 min. drive.

    Cozy Quilt Shop is 20.11 miles away, 28 min. drive.

    I hope you can get to both of them. :D

    You will LOVE that hotel..it's right on the bay..the military ships come & go & it's just so awesome to see them come through the channel.
    I live up the street from Shelter Island! Rosie's is a must. It's about 20 min. from the hotel.
