    Oh, there's a storm coming, at least according to my weather man on the news last night, so you may get snow yet. ;)

    I used to live in Tacoma and then lived in Bremerton for several years. I loved visiting Port Angeles, esp. the bread company there. Yum!! You sure live in a gorgeous area!

    I've been to "Quilt Something" in Moscow, Idaho. It's a great shop but probably too far away from where you are....

    Moscow is a great place but about an 8 hour drive from here. Well, I guess I can always use the local phone book :roll: :roll: :roll:

    Moscow is 565 miles from me. A bit far to meet for lunch or anything like that. :( Bummer! I didn't realize it was so far away. :P

    Check out:

    The Quilting Bee, on Mission just off the Pines off ramp
    A Heart Like Yours, on Sprague between Argonne and Pines

    A shop that used to be called "Simply Kits", they just changed their name, just off Sprague at Bowdish

    Sew Easy II, on Garland, west of Division

    And there's one more at the 'Y', - can you tell I don't make it to the northside very often!! Have a great trip, and PM me if you have any more questions about Spokane!

    And, a short trip just past the Air Force Base will take you to the Buggy Barn!

    Moscow is only about 1 1/2 to 2 hour drive from both Coeur d' Alene and Spokane. It's about 85- 90 miles, but perhaps still too far to go.

    I'll second Shelley on those. Pam Clarke closed last week or I'd mention that 1. My favorite out of those is the 1 on Garland
    Sew Easy II. Lots of novelties and just everything.
    Are you going through Ritzville on your travels home?

    The quilt shop at the North Division Y is called the Cozy Quilt. It's a great quilt shop, just like the others that have been mentioned. Then there's Bear Paw in Coeur d'Alene, too. That one is also very nice!

    Bear Paw - I LOVE that place. Their new store is WONDERFUL!! And - to keep the guys busy - there is Black Sheep across the street. That's the only way I get to spend any time there!

    Also in C'dA is Lyle's. It has a little bit of everything.

    WOW! Thanks everybody. That list should keep me busy next week. My daughter lives a block from Bear Paw (love it) and Lyles is really cool too! I always forget abt Hancock in Hayden. Had lunch in Ritzville last Sunday. What did I miss there?? We travel back and forth from Blaine to Coeur d Alene at least 4 times a year so can stop in Ritzville next trip. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year Quilting! :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup:
