    Hi Quilters, at the end of August I will be visiting Iowa. The area around Ames, Colo, Des Moines and Nevada. Can you give me the names of some fabric shops? Is there a Marshall's Dry good store nearby? Will be out there for four nights. Maybe I will see some of you.

    Thanks,

    I am in South Dakota, so don't have much info, just wondering if you would like to bring my baby sister from Charlotte, NC? Just teasing. Have a good trip. Jackie

    Ok, here goes. My favorites in the Ames, Des Moines area are the Quilting Connection in Ames, Cross Creek Quilting in Clive and The Quilt Block in West Des Moines. Not sure about some of the other areas you mentioned. Others will come thru with shops in those areas I'm sure! No Marshalls, sorry!

    I would guess she meant Nevada, Iowa. You would not have known that. But I'll keep these shops in mind for my next trip out west!!! I'm keeping a running list. :-D

    Fons and Porter is just west of Des Moines. If you have time you might want to check that out.

    North on I-35 and west on 20 to Iowa Falls Iowa. About 45 min.
    Up 65 from Colo straight to Iowa Falls.About the same time either way.
    You will not find a better fabric shop any where. Quality fabric.
    My friend from Mn. comes here to go to the shop.
    The Iowa Falls Sewing on Washington ave.

    They have wonderful reproduction fabrics I use for the doll clothes and doll quilts I make.
