    I have a Jo-Anns about a mile away from my house. VERY handy to just zip over whenever the mood hits me. Hancocks is about 7 miles away. There's a "sew and vac" store that has quality fabric that's about 1.5 miles away.

    there's on nasty LQS that's about 2 miles from me. Another much friendlier LQS about an hour or so drive away, and a JoAnns about 20-25 minutes from me. The LQS that I really like to go to though is about 2 hours away

    Jo-Ann, 5 minutes, Hancock's, 5 minutes, Hobby Lobby, 10 minutes, LQS, 10 minutes, BUT LQS is moving to a new location, (which actually should be better, and, hopefully, BIGGER WITH MORE FABRIC!!Then LQS will be about 15 minutes.

    My SIL lives in Iowa, and travels for her job all over the midwest, and she is always calling, emailing, or texting me about the great quilt shops she visits! *jealous*

    LOL -depends on your definition of "fabric store"

    1 LQS - 7 miles
    1 JoAnn's - 4 miles
    1 LQS - 4miles
    1 LQS - 3 miles (on way to day job)
    1resale shop - 1 mile
    1 personal stash mini store - 0 miles
    100's of online shops - 0 miles

    And I joined the 2011 Fabric Moratorium. What WAS I thinking :?:

    I am so jealous!!! The closest Joann's is about 2 and a half hours away. Walmart is an hour away and the lqs is an hour in the other direction.

    I have a JoAnn's about 20 minutes from where I live, but I hate the area it's in! Way too much traffic!!! It's right across the road from a large mall, and the store itself is in a large strip mall which is across the road from another large strip mall!!! It's pretty nice, but I miss another one I used to frequent that was about 25-30 minutes away from me. It closed its doors last year. :cry: :cry: I liked that JoAnn's much better. :?

    About 20 miles. The community I live in only has a couple grocery stores, many pizza places, three fast-food places, numerous bars and auto parts stores. To do any kind of 'real' shopping I have to go about 20 miles, no matter which direction.

    LQS is about a mile away; Joann's is 20 miles away. There are some Amish quilt shops within ten miles, but you have to go there on a sunny day because they don't have electricity and it is difficult to see the fabrics on a cloudy day.
