    Millers Dry Goods

    Just spent about an hour there and got out for just under 200.00. While it is a bit of a drive for me it will be my go to shop!!! I really thought there would be more people there, it being such a beautiful day; so it was nice to have some room to walk around. Got some yardage, a quilt kit and a fat quarter bundle. Very good prices and very helpful staff!!!

    Don't you love when you get to shop like that. You don't have to wait for people who stand around unable to choose. I do try to go in with a shopping list. Sounds like you had a great day shopping.

    I love going to shops that have different items than what I can find locally.

    I love shopping(or just looking) there. It's about hour+ from me and I get there a few times a year. Always friendly and helpful. Took my SIL from Florida there a few years ago, thought I'd have to pry her out of the place. She nearly bought out the store!

    I went to a new opening of a sewing machine/vacuum store yesterday and got sticker shock when I saw Hoffman batiks at $15.99 a yard !!! They cut me (3) 1/8 yard pieces but told me this was ONLY because of the grand opening. I then went across the street to Hobby Lobby!! Glad you had fun !! I sure did !!

    Ha I say that all the time I want to crisscross the country like a quilting grid wouldn't want to miss anything.

    Where in Ohio do you live? I'm just outside of Ashland Oh. Millers has been my go to shop in Holmes county for many years. I really prefer it to Helping Hands in Berlin. It still has maintained its "old timey" feeling and is not as "touristy" as the others. The people there are very helpful too. You should subscribe to their website and news letter.

    I LOVE Millers! I get their monthly newsletter and am planning a trip there this week. They usually have a lot of pre-cuts as well.

    I visited Millers this summer also. Loved it. And, my husband was just as happy at Keim Lumber, which was within walking distance.

    I have heard this shop mentioned often but had no idea where it was located. I would be a long day trip for me but... if I could blend it with another adventure, it would be worth it. Glad you had a good "shop".

    OK I like Miller's Dry goods but I really like Somewhere sewing . My guild has a retreat in Charm every year. We have hit most of the quilt shops in and around Berlin for 8 plus years. We stay at an Amish farm called Charm Country inn. Love that family. We stay 4 days and we sound like a sweat shop sewing. I would highly recommend them . There is a small shop called Pine tree quilts. Very small but nice people.I try to stay under $400. FOR the weekend lol

    I'm with you WMUTeach.........I live in Three Rivers, MI. Would be quite a day trip but if I were to find a few other shops in between and an over night stay and a stop at Lolly's (one of my favs) in Shipshewana on the way home would be perfect.
