    Driving from TN to Florida Keys

    I will be driving from the Knoxville, TN area to the Florida Keys in July. I'd like to break up the trip (14+ hours) with some good quilt shop stops. I've got the following suggestions on my list - can you add any more?
    Quilt Place in Rockledge, FL
    Byrds Nest Quilt Shoppe, Ormand Beach, FL
    Cinnamons Quilt Shop, Jacksonville FL
    Sew & Quilt Shop Bunnel, FL
    A Scarlet Thread, GA
    Thank you!

    The Quilt Place in Rockledge is right off I-95 so it's a great place to stop. It's nothing terribly fancy but they have a HUGE selection of great fabrics. Enjoy your trip!

    If you're driving south from western TN, there's Bayside Quilting in Panama City, FL.

    I think there's also a quilt shop frequently mentioned from Dunedin, FL (north of Clearwater and St. Pete).

    Or maybe I'm thinking of Suwanee Quilting in Trenton FL, west of Gainesville.

    Also look at

    I grew up in Rockledge, FL and my mother (Dona) works at The Quilt Place. If you stop there (and I recommend it.....the amount of fabric is close to overwhelming)......tell her Tracy said hello!

    If you are going through Chattanooga, check out Chattanooga Quilts in Ooltewah, a sweet little shop. Or, if you go soon, check out Sew Be It down in Ringgold. This amazing shop was totally destroyed in the 2011 tornado and quickly rebuilt, but will be closing I think in September. Everything is 30% off right now.

    If you come back up the west coast there are some nice shops in Ft Myers and Punta Gorda/Port Charlotte. Google a search for shops in FL and you'll find a lot!

    Do an Internet search on every state you will be going through.

    If you have a Iphone or smart phone, you shoud be able to search for quilt shops or maybe check for an app in the apps store.

    Don't know what highway you're taking, but A&E Pharmacy in Pensacola has a great selection of quilting materials, patterns, and other craft supplies. Yes, I know, I was skeptical myself when I first moved here and was told about it. Just the name would raise question marks, but try it - I think you'll not only like it, but love it!

    If you are going by there, Seaside Quilt Shop in New Smyrna Beach is great. They have just added additional space. Hope you have a safe and wonderful shopping experience at all of those mentioned! Also there is Quilt shop of Deland in Deland. Another great place with lots of little shops and eating places around. Have fun!

    Another one is Suzanne's quilt shop in Moultrie, GA right off of Interstate 75. She's moving so has a great sale going right now. woohoo! You might need to add a couple of days to that trip to hit all of these. But I have been to all of these except Suzanne's and they are great. What quilt shop isn't great???

    There's "Quilters Choice" in Jupiter. 2 or 3 miles east of I-95 on Maplewood Drive (a few driveways behind Home Depot) which crosses Indiantown Road which is an exit on I-95. I hope that's clear. It's really very easy. Nice shop, nice people, fabrics, books, etc.

    Definitely A Scarlet Thread in McDonough, GA. It's a short distance off of I75S so easy to find. Love the store but my experience with Cust Svc has been both very good and very bad. Also Intown Quilters in Decatur GA if you like brights. They aren't too far off I285, the "perimeter" or beltway around ATL. They're on the east side, the way you'd probably choose to go if you want to use the perimeter instead of going through the city on I75/I85. There are other shops too in the metro ATL but these are the first that come to mind as being very accessible. Have fun!

    If you can swing by DeLand, FL, there is a great quilt shop there. It's just called Quilt Shop of DeLand. The owner has her own line of fabric and it's a shop with lots and lots of ideas. Not just limited to quilts, but also dolls and so on. DeLand is the home of Stetson University and the downtown where the shop is has retained it's identity. Meaning not everything has been torn down and done over as is so much of FL. Lots of good eateries there, too. Bring an umbrella as we are in the middle of the monsoon season. LOL Happy and safe travels.
