    Quilt shops in my area are few and far between. We have 4! One is 15 miles away, one is 25 miles, the 3rd is 35 miles and the last is 46 miles, that is one way. The closest one is so small is doesn't have much in way of fabric, and they just opened up less than a year ago. We do not have competition here. But to get fabric we have to drive along way and spend a mint. If we want quality fabric, we drive the 25 or 35 miles and pay $8-$10/yard for fabric. The price is so high because there is no competition!! To help keep it low, so they charge an arm and a leg and some times a torso!! Wish we had more LQS in the area!! To those who do feel lucky!!

It's a day long trip for me, shop, go have lunch, and shop some more! DH always goes so he can carry my bolts!

    Ninnie where do you live? I'm in Lexington, NC. I've only been to Mary Jo's once.

    I love my LQS too. It's a fifty mile round trip drive, but I gladly make that trip. My quilt shop, along with having the most LUSH collection of fabrics, has a lovely little cafe attached to it. All of my quilting buddies, and I, have our lunch there, and enjoy it so much. The desserts are handmade and super good. But the best thing is the staff of the shop. They're very experienced not only with making quilts themselves, but with helping their customers with any problem or crises that comes up. They're terrific. I could stay there all day. The name of my shop is Suwannee Valley Quilt Shop, located in Trenton, Florida. It's in an old Pepsi Cola bottling plant. The building itself is a treasure. 8)
