    My understanding of this is:

    (1) dmackey has offered to compile a list of quilt shops and stores/shops that sell fabric/quilting supplies that are open to the public

    (2) the information will be coming ONLY from board members - the information will only be as accurate and complete as to what dmackey receives from the members and her transcription of the info

    (3) reviews of the shop, service, etc. will NOT be included

    (4) specialties of the shop - such as civil war prints, 1930's reproductions, etc, may be included

    Now I'm confused as to how to make #3 and #4 compatible

    I think, almost by definition, that a list of this sort will always be incomplete.

    I am simply compiling a list of shops that members are aware of that are currently in business and their locations for those who travel or for those who were not aware of what was in their area, so they can easily find the shops and I have offered to keep it updated. That's all, nothing more, nothing less. I certainly hope it is better than nothing.

    We all have had problems with shops at one time or another, but that doesn't mean they should be excluded, and no one is required to include all available in their area.

    I would like to see this thread go back to it's original intent, and that is a request for members to send me information requested in my original post about current shops, so I can compile the list.

    Thanks!

    Diane

    Yes, it will always be incomplete, but it will be the most comprehensive available if there is good participation and it will have dates of inclusion.

    I don't understand your confusion between 3 and 4. Three is judgemental and four is any specialty offered.

    Members,

    I simply offered to make a list of CURRENTLY exisiting quilt shops, for free, kept updated, and asked for your help to create this list by sending me the local info on the places you shop.

    It seems my request is creating quite a bit of unintended controversy and a simple request is turning into a debate.

    Please continue to send me posts as outlined in my original message and keep this thread simple, so I don't regret making the offer. There has been more posts debating this list than there has been requested information.

    Thank you kindly for your consideration.

    Diane

    I was thinking in terms of expressions like

    GREAT selection of civil war prints!!!! :D :D :D (which is - in a way - judgemental)

    as compared to

    Approximately 10 feet of shelving devoted to civil war prints - mostly by (manufacturer name) - (and this is boring but probably not judgemental)

    p.s. didn't we have another thread going w/ quilt shops listed by state? Appreciate you wanting to complete a list for us just hate to see you do something thats already going....maybe we could combine them?

    Bearisgray,

    I would change it to: Civil War prints

    I intend to have a column in the spreadsheet for SPECIALTY/SERVICES, and will keep it short and sweet.

    Thanks,

    Diane

    What, exactly, is a Google spreadsheet and what is needed to access/copy/save same? I've never heard of it and am far from a computer novice. Thanks.

    On Google, you choose DOCUMENTS and then choose the type. I use the spreadsheet quite a bit. I have my class reunion group database on there, family birthdays, addresses, and I use the documents to store all my files that I need to access outside of my home computer.

    You can share the documents with others or make it public. You can control who has access to changes too.

    It is a very easy way to share info with others without creating a web page, and it gives me a way to back up or store files that I wouldn't want to lose on my hard drive.

    And how would we all access this info? Do we have to have a Google log-in? And how do we copy your info to our own hard drive?

    That is a fantastic place for her to get a start! Thank you for grasping that. Hopefully the drama behind a very kindhearted offer will stop.

    Thank you Diane for attempting to assist the board members with this type of information. I know I will have a great appreciation for it. Before I went on vacation last month, I had to hit the net and search out quilt stores for each place we were going to. How nice it would have been to "flip open" your link and QUICKLY see what was where.

    Hi JJean,

    Please send the name, exact street address, town, state, zip, phone and web address. I am not using current internet lists because I cannot validate if they exist or not without a lot of work. I need the requested info from those of you who shop at the locations so we know it is an exisiting business.

    I work two jobs and cannot spend the time searching the web or making phone calls. If members send the requested information, then I can copy and paste into a dated spread sheet and that will reduce the amount of work involved.

    Thank you for understanding.

    Diane

    This list is current. The shop hop just happened. Changes are noted on the bottom of the page. I visited 16 of the shops and have friends who collected patterns from each of these shops. It is a usable list.

    Can/will you include the area codes, too?

    If we're not from the area, we don't have a clue - - -

    Hi all,

    I live in Sherbrooke, Québec, Canada and I love to shop at CountrySide Fabrics. It is only about 50 miles from where I live and the service is great. You can find it at 1780 Vt Route 105, Newport VT. Their phone number is 802-334-8879. Unfortunately, they don't have a website. Hope this information will be useful. Great idea to compile this list. Thanks.
