    Hi there ladies and gents.

    I'm going to be spending the weekend in the SF Bay area. Are there any quilt shops that you'd suggest I visit.

    I have an addiction to batiks and Japanese prints, so New Pieces Quilt Store in Berkeley is on the list.

    Any others I should see?

    If you are near the South Bay, check out Eddies Quilting Bee. I think they have a lot of Asian prints and a lot of fabric in general but I've only been to a few LQS so far :)

    The Granery, and Carolea's comes to mind, but I haven't been to either in years.

    Stone Mountain and Daughter in Berkeley has a wide selection of quilt fabrics and other types plus lots of notions. Bring parking money. There's a Beverly's Fabrics in Concord on Clayton Rd. Have fun in the SF area. The weather should be very nice and the wildflowers are in bloom!

    New Pieces in Berkeley on Gilman. Just a few blocks east of Interstate 80 by Golden Gate Fields.

    Not necessarily a quilt store, but I hear Britex is worth a visit.

    I have never been, but I hear the Lacis Museum of Lace and Textiles in Berkeley is quite a place, especially if you are in to
    embellishments.

    The weekend was very low key and relaxed, and I only made it to New Pieces. What a great little shop for batiks. :) I'll definitely go back.

    One of the gals in the shop suggested Laci's like one of the posters here. I'll also have to hit Britex next time I'm in town.

    The friend inadvertently brushed minkee while we were at the cutting table, and he was fascinated with it. I think I know what one of my next projects will be. Something masculine, backed with minkee. ;) That should be a challenge.

    Lookie at what I bought!!! :) It's mostly for stash, but I may do a lap quilt out of part of it.
