Take a trip to Rainbows End Quilt Shoppe in Dunedin, FL. It has over 18,000 bolts of fabric, lots of patterns, books, notions, you name it! Its a quilter's heaven and haven for those of us who reside in fl but for those come and visit take a trip there, you won't regret it! (Well maybe your pocketbook would, but oh well :)

What a great shop! So bright and sunny! Great location for all the retired folks down there. We are panhandle Florida people so I have no reason to get there, but maybe one day!

Oh yes! My first trip there was today. MOST of the fabric is $9.50 a yard (I didn't buy anything at all! :shock: ) But they have less expensive stuff too. One bolt I looked at was $4 a yard, in the way back of their back room. I feel completely like "the fabric that got away" as it's a bit of a drive for me. :cry:

They are right in the middle of redoing their website to another location as well as moving the first room all around, it's a big undertaking, trust me mom kept teasing me about getting "stuck" - as I was following the fabric and not always looking where I was headed. ;)

When I learn that the new site is up I'll let everyone know so they can order. :)
