Hi,
We were there this week. There was a very nice man who answered all of my questions and cut my fabric for me. I live near Keepsake Quilting up here and Rainbows End feels like KQ with a different flavor - so to speak. It felt a little silly buying flannel in Florida in April while it was about 90 degrees out but I just loved what I found.
Any info on quilting groups or guilds would be appreciated in that area would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
lots2do

I do. I love that shop. It is a little ways from Tampa but well worth the trip.

You live in a lovely area. We left NH last Saturday in the snow and so appreciated the weather and temp. when we got to Florida!

I used to live in New Port Richey FL and Rainbows end was the closest LQS. If I remember correctly it was about a 45 minute drive to get there. I loved that shop.

Don't live there but have a condo on Anna Maria Island. I think RE is run by sisters and a brother sometimes works there... Or maybe a mother & daughter w/ son/brother sometimes there?

I live in Rochester, NY and visit my daughter in St. Petersburg. The Rainbows End is always on my list of places to go when we visit. It's a lovely shop.

Next time you are in town let me know we have some great shops. Not as big as RE but just as great.

I always say that if Rainbow's end doesn't have it, stop looking. I only go there if I can't locate what I need.

But as a friendlier shop and not so pricey, I prefer Country Quilts and Bears in Clearwater, and Happy Apple Quilts/Crafty Threadsin Oldsmar (mailing address, Tampa).
