    must see quilt shops in Ohio?

    My DH and I are planning a road trip through Ohio next month. Are there any "got to see" quilt shops you would recommend? Maybe we could take a detour and visit the ones that come highly recommended? Thanks

    Phranny, my friends and I took a trip to eastern Ohio last week. In a small town called Courtland there are 3 quilt shops. Each one offers something different in fabric lines. They are near Warren, OH. I can't find my map with the names on them but if you Google "quilt shops, Courtland, OH" they should come up. Have fun and be safe!

    Don't know just where you will be going but look up Holmes County Ohio. It is Amish country with lots of good quilt shops in the little towns. I love going there. Good luck and have a wonderful time. Mayme

    if you're near Waynesville (about 20 miles east of Middletown) go to the Fabric Shack. Waynesville is a small town with lots of antique shops.

    Tootle famish country Ohio.There is an area that has a place called Sinks where the famish buy their fabric.The prices are good and the variety even better but it's not your typical quilt shop(more like a fabric warehouse) but there are several high end quilt shops within a few miles of it.Have a great trip!

    PawPawPatch Quilt Store in Mt Vernon(30 min NE of Columbus)!!! I stopped there this summer and she has a wonderful selection - and a good eye for mixing fabrics.

    Fabric Shack is also a must in SW'ish Ohio. Fabric Shack is one of the largest in the area.

    From an Ohio quilter, here are my favorites: 1. Shiloh/Plymouth area - Country Fabrics - Huge selection and great prices - Mennonite owned. 2. Holmes Co: Miller's Dry Goods in Charm, between Millersburg & Berlin; 3. between Berlin and Sugarcreek is Zinck.s - again nice selection and good prices - also fleece, lace, flannel, buttons, etc. 4. Downtown Berlin is Helping Hands Quilt shop - nice selection but high prices - has a bargain area downstairs. Other small shops and shopping in Berlin - heart of Holmes County and Amish life in Ohio. Enjoy

    Thanks everyone for your replies! Looks like our road trip will head us into the Berlin direction. DH is very patient with my new addiction, and I do want to be as efficient with my shopping time as possilbe.

    All of the above and Grandma Fannie's in Berlin and further east in Dover Oh is The Material Girl Fabric Outlet - fantastic selection and great help with choices from the owner, Wendy. Holmes, Tuscarawas County area has lots of shops.

    You must make a stop at Fabric Shop in Waynesville, OH just north of Cincinnati. You can get to it off of interstates 71 or 75 via state route 73. They have a fantastic selection of fabric. They also sell online. http://www.fabricshack.com/

    Good friends are like quilts - they age with you, yet never lose their warmth.

    Fabric Shack is my favorite here in Ohio by all means. They are so nice and accommodating. Right now, they're holding a bolt of fabric for me til Saturday. They've been holding it since Wed.

    If you're close to Huber Heights there's Sulphur Grove Quilt Shop and in the neighboring city of Beavercreek there is The Mason Jar. Both are pretty small, but nice. I like the Fabric Shack in Waynesville, too. Of course, Waynesville has lots of antique & gift shops. It's fun to make it a day in Waynesville.

    The Inn at Walnut Creek has great priced rooms, clean and good breakfast. Wonderful views. When we went it was $69 per night. Renees down the street has great food according to husband. Also got great meals in Berlin. The coffee shop is a nice central place for husband to rest/wait/read newspaper and they have good coffee.

    Country Craft Cupboard in Berlin is a great little shop with things I was never able to find anywhere else. Be sure and check out the basement. Across from Helping Hands.

    I go twice a year (5 hours away) for two retreats and love the whole area.
