Default Going on Minnesota trip--any suggestions where?

We'll be in the Minneapolis/Rochester/Albert Lea triangle for a week 6/24-7/1 and from an internet search I made a list of some quilt shops I'd like to see if time, but if there are any quilt shows or events or must see quilt shops, please let me know. Thanks!

Quilt Cove - Eagan - nice little shop. Colorful fabrics. Lots of kits.
It's near the new Twin Cities Premium Outlets, if you're interested in that sort of thing.
Personally, the outlet place is someplace I'd go once, just to check it out. But other than that, it's boring. The usual stuff one sees at outlet malls.

Glad Creations - Bloomington - also very nice. More traditional in feel.
Eagle Creek Quilt Shop - Savage - large selection of fabric, more traditional fabrics

A new SR Harris opened up in Burnsville, on Hwy 13. Fabulous! Colorful, bright fabrics. A great selection of I Spy fabrics. A great selection of just about everything, actually! Beautiful display of marbles and watercolors.

I just got back from there and SR Harris is a fantastic place to go. Make a trip up there
every year just to go there.

I'm putting SR Harris on my list for the next trip into the Cities. I quit going down Hwy 13 to Burnsville after the fabric outlet store closed.

Our daughter lives in Shakopee, but she's not a quilter...has never even had an interest in sewing. I will, however, prevail upon her to get me to Eagle Creek Quilt Shop the next time we get up there. (We're about 3 hours from her...live in SW MN). And Calico Hutch in Hayward is a nice shop! My DH is the one who asked me if I'd like to stop (we were on our way home from visiting friends in WI at the time). He didn't have to ask twice!
