    I am sending you a link and a pic of my favorite shop. I like it because the ladies are friendly always have coffee brewing and some type of dessert. they are always willing to help and will have a private class if you request one and they can fit it it. they aim to please. :D :D
    At one time I worked in this shop.
    I am doing A BOM with them now and they are picking great fabric. They carry reproduction, civil war and wool kits. They are so creative. Their color combinations sometimes catch me off guard and I say why did I not think of putting those colors togethrr. They will cut you a FatQ from any fabric at your request. They tear their fabric but will cut if you request.

    The name Las Colchas (Spanish) translated means The Quilts!!!!
    They do ship all over in case some of you are interested :D :D :D

    Here is the link show me your favorite shop if you can
    http://www.lascolchas.com/

    That looks like such a sweet shop!!! (And cookies and coffee?????)

    My favorite shop doesn't sell online (yet) but they have reasonably priced fabrics, kits and the nicest owners and workers I have ever seen. I take whatever I'm having problems with to them and they always help me. The name of the shop is Quilter's Nest, located here in Evansville, Indiana -- within 3 minutes driving time of my home. Yep, that gets me in trouble :D

    Here is my favorite Local Store :

    http://www.ericas.com/

    they are very friendly and helpful. They cut the fabric and will also do a fat quarter from any fabric if you want it :lol: I recently wanted to do a paper piecing class and then had only been doing it during the day, but I asked about an evening class and the next month they had it in the evening :lol:
    But sadly no cookies or coffee :roll: On their 35th anniversary they had cake , punch and munchies :wink:

    I went there at the April's Shop Hop. Nice place, but kinda of the beaten track.
