What's the name of the shop? How much longer will it be open? Sounds like it may be a road trip for DD and me.

Sorry to hear another shop is closing it's doors. They are getting further and farther apart. My closest is more than 50 miles away. Am always surprised that quilters don't support them, but then I am just as much to blame. I just can't drive 100 miles round trip to buy the "better" material I need right now to finish what I am doing. Sad state of affairs but it seems to be part of the economy of today.

I spent several days in Princeton for a wedding a few years ago and there were two nice quilt shops in town. What is the name of the one closing? I remember my time there fondly - it was a nice town.

We just had one close in "my neck of the woods" the line of "shoppers" was down the strip mall , had to be at least 200 waiting to get in . I peeked in and saw that they had marked down 25 % . Since they were only letting so many in at a time, one person had to leave before another went in.... there was nothing I wanted that bad to wait all day.
I was sorry the shop was closing, it was one of my favorites.

Which shop in Princeton????

A few years ago fellow QB'ers and I had a "meet-and-greet" in Princeton and we visited two shops. Would love to know which one it is.

Oh I really hate to hear that. I never took the time stop in on my travel to Ladd Peru. Doggone it. It is too far for me to travel too now and sounds a bit too late. I try to support our area store, spreading my purchases throughout the area. However, I don't have time to use what I have now.

That is a bummer to say the least. I live in Staten Island NY and because the rent is so high a quilt shop cannot survive, not to mention very few quilt in this hustle and bustle of a town. I sure miss NC where I had so many lovely shops.

Hey all you Illinois girls. The LQS in Hillsboro is moving and has most of their stock 40 - 50% off right now. They lost their lease and are looking for a building but need to get rid of as much as they can because they don't have a place to store it while they get a building ready.
