    If you are willing to get a little outside of Denver proper, one of my favorites is Lyons Quilting, in Lyons, CO.

    One of my favorites is Hollys Quilt Cabin in Centennial, CO. It’s pretty close to Denver.

    I love to go to Holly's Quilt Cabin when I go to Denver. I also like Wooden Spools which is on the south side of town on Broadway Street. They have a unique business model. I enjoy the people there.

    I think she was referring to Wooden Spools. as being unique. It is actually at 2805 S Broadway Englewood, CO. Maybe just a block south of the city line. I have lived in south Denver for .... oh, lets, just say a long time. According to https://www.woodenspools.com/about-us/ (Not affiliated with link) they buy "stash fabric" and I think they might have a line of new fabric, I have heard of people trying to find fabric to finish a quilt and hadn't been able to find a "proper match" until finding something that would work there. It has been quite a while since I have actually been in there.

    Don't miss the Rocky Mountain Quilt Museum, just outside Denver in Golden. They always have very interesting exhibits. The gift shop is small but sells nice reproduction fabrics.

    My reference to an unusual business model was about Wooden Spools. These ladies buy back fabric from people who have decided they do not want to use it. It must be new and unwashed. Then, they catagorize it on the shelves and re-sell it. They clearly state, by signs, fabric that is quilt store quality and that which came from discount stores. I have found great fabric there. They also do this with yarn. They give classes, have demonstrations, sew-in days. It is a happy place.

    I checked this previous list. Great American and Harriets have been closed for several years now.

    My go to quilt stores are:
    Creative Needle - medium sized store stuffed full of fabrics. Huge selection of batiks-solids, + more.
    Wooden Spools - quilterpurpledog gave a very clear and concise explanation of this store.

    Both if these stores are located in the suburbs of Denver.

    My other “go to” store is NaLa’s in Fountain. It is located about 1.5 hr South of Denver (20 min South of Colorado Springs). Smaller store, great variety of fabrics.

    Google quilt shop in Colorado and you will get a list and also guilds. In
    Denver there are shops on the same street. The Great American Quilt Factory closed several years ago. Welcome to Co and have fun.
