San Francisco is a very diverse city. I don't remember a lot of quilting in the city when I lived there. If you are into dyes and other sewing related goodies visit Dharma Trading in Berkeley. Drive so you can go to the Fourth Street Grill.

If you are willing to travel a little out of the city, Always Quilting, Laurel Leaf and Scruffy Quilts are in the San Mateo/Burlingame area, about 1/2 hour south off of 101.

there is a very active guild in SF, they put up a great quilting show every couple of years. I would get in touch with them for suggestions of the best quilting shops in the city. I leave in the bay area, plenty of fabric store in the suburbs!

IQuiltnFL is right about Dharma Trading.. very fun.
Fourth St. in Berkeley is a fun shopping experience too with lots of interesting shops.

A few years ago I found a tiny shop in Chinatown, SF that sold home linens... hand embroidered hankies, pillow cases etc. I bought several hankies to make a christening gown.

Britex on Geary St is not a quilt store per se but has a small quilting cotton section. What it does have is 4 or 5 floors of just about every type of fabric you could want (home dec, wools, bridal, etc.), more buttons than you've probably ever seen anywhere else and tons of trims. It's just a fun place to browse.

These are some stores in Berkeley: Stone Mountain and Daughter, Discount Fabrics, Lacis (lace and trims) and New Pieces. I live in the Sacramento area, my friends and I take the train to Berkeley, so much fun!
