    There are some neat directories that list Quilt Shops by state, city, and area. I kept one in my car for a long time, so that I would have it for road trips to find the quilt shops in every area. Some Quilt Shops have the directories for sale.

    hello-
    send us photos of you in front of the shop and we can pretend to be there with you. I would recommend "The Quilt Place" in Rockledge, Florida and "Creations" in Kerville, Texas.

    Kevin,

    When you one to Detroit, let me know. There are a couple of shops that I would love to show you. One in Tecumseh, Fenton, and Berkley. Those are my favorites.

    If you fly into Boston you can take commuter rail to Franklin Center (about 45-50 minutes) and walk across the street to Emma's Quilt Cupboard & Sewing Center. It's a cute shop with helpful people. There's a nice coffee shop within walking distance too Dolce Vita.

    Thanks!! I'll have to check them out the next time I go visit my son who's in college out there. He lives in Wyoming. I've been to the one near his apartment in Wyoming - forgot the name. small fabric collection but they also sell sewing machines.

    Jumping in late here, but if you fly into Philadelphia there is The Little Shop in Haddonfield, NJ; Olde City Quilts in Burlington, NJ and Pennington Quilt Works in Pennington, NJ. The first 2 are (relatively) easily gotten to via public transportation (train/subway) directly from the airport. Happy travels.

    Kevin, I hop you get some great spots to visit. Not so many in Boston that I know but if you head to the south shore there are a few more. Here is one to start with: Heart in Hands, 235 Columbia St. Weymouth, MA is a beautiful small shop (closed Mondays)

    I was going to suggest the 3 Dudes as well. When visiting my family I've shopped there. The the guys who run the place are more than helpful.

    In Mpls, check out Blue Bamboo! I don't think I've ever seen so many bolts of fabric in my whole life...

    Jinny Beyer's shop is in the vicinity of the BWI airport. It is a great shop and if she is there, get to talk to her. She is a great lady. She designs fabrics for RJR and has them in her shop as well as her patterns. Don't miss it!

    If you're in the Baltimore area (BWI) Seminole Sampler is 10 minutes from airport- I suspect it might take longer to rent the car!!

    You might even find some shops with "sit and sew" where you could join them with your projects. Then you could meet some of the area's quilters.

    When I go to a place and want quilt shops, I go to the internet. Print the addresses and I check them out.
    Each day is a blessing, so do something you love each day.

    When you hit Los Angeles, you HAVE TO go to M & L Fabrics in Anaheim, CA.

    Be sure to wear comfortable shoes and bring water, you will be there for hours. It is practically across the street from Knott's Berry Farm and very near Disneyland.

    Kevin - you ever land in Portland, Oregon, be sure to go to the FabricDepot. It's a MUST DO! Acres of GOOD fabric - they sell LQS quality fabric -- named fabric (like Moda). I went for the first time this last fall and almost hyperventilated!!!!

    My favorite shop does not have an airport near it, but if you ever are near there you will have to see it. It is worth going out of your way. It is in Rupert Idaho. I cannot remember the name of it, but it is the only one in the town. It is right downtown and sits on one of the corners near the town square park.

    What cities do you usually travel to? If you post on this board where and when you will be I bet there are other quilters who would like to meet up with you and show you around. It is such fun to meet other quilters! I live south of the cleveland , ohio airport and north of the Akron Canton ohio airport. there are several shops in both areas. Let me know when you will be in either area and I would really like to meet you. You can PM me if you want.

    Sadly our biggest/best quilt shop in Denver closed their doors
    last year "The Great American Quilt Factory"

    I didn't get the chance to go to that quilt shop very often, but I
    LOVED it when I was able too.

    But than DIA is not very close to anything since it is so darn big.

    Louise - Ya-ya to Zachary April 13 2015. I collect mugs from the U.S. and around the world. Also collect handmade pincushions, sewing/quilting themed fabrics, and fabric in general.

    In OKC, there's Oklahoma Quiltworks (Penn and Britton Road) and Savage Quilter (60-70th?? and May Ave)... neither are particularly close to the airport, but if you have a day, both are worth the travel... If you have even more time, run N up I-35 to Guthrie (take the Sooner Road exit) go West not even a mile to Sooner Quilts...
    All three are great shops!!
