I am flying to St Petersburg January 30th and will be there a week. Any suggestions on what/where quilts shops I "must" go to ? Anyone living there want to meet up ? Not sure what else I will be doing while there, as I am meeting up with my parents and originally we were going to do Disney ( I have never done Disney :-( ) LOL but not sure if we will make it there. Want to drive over one day to Daytona :wink: thanks for any suggestions

Hmmmmm how do I stow away in sharon's suitcase? Do you think she will miss the clothes I will have to take out so I can fit in there? :D:D:D

There are a couple members over that way. I don't know St. Pete well, but if you end up in Brandon, the Joann's there is huge. Their quilting section was bigger than most LQS.

Go to Rainbow's End in Dunedin. It is huge. When I lived in Tampa I HAD to go over there every couple of weeks. You'll love it.

You MUST go to the Rainbow Ends Quilt Shoppe in the area. I'll pm you the addy. It has over 10,000 bolts of fabric, patterns and all.
