    Well, my DH and I decided to make a road trip to Howard Ohio to visit his sister and family. We left PA Thursday morning and got out there early evening. I told my SIL and niece that I would like to visit some quilt shops near them. So, Friday morning we headed out to Millersburg to Miller's Dry Goods Store - Fantastic shop, helpful staff - loved it! Then we went to Berlin and went to Helping Hand Quilts Shop then across the street to the Country Cupboard - both shops very nice - good selection of fabrics - helpful staff - reasonable prices!!! From there we went to Mount Hope to the Lonestar Quilt Shop - really nice got the large twister tool and project book - fabric from all the shops we visited and even got my SIL and niece in on the fabric touching and putting together fabrics for bow tuck purses they want me to make for them. We were heading back when we went by Zinck's Fabric outlet - OMG so much fabric unreal. I would have had to spend hours to see all the different fabrics!!! We all had a wonderful time and even though they aren't quilters they hung in there like troopers - patiently waiting while I checked out the fabric! Are any of you near any of these places? Just wanted to share my vacation! Made it home this evening and plan on sewing and getting projects sorted and organized tomorrow - So as soon as I can, I'll post some pics!

    I go too, once or twice a year. I really like the Helping Hands Quilt Shop. Glad you had a successful trip--and a patient family!

    It's about an hour from me. Love zinck's and millers has an unbelievable selection of fabric. If you ever get over toward Ashland, go to Country Charm Fabrics, just off rt. 250. Can't think of the lady's name that runs it but she is so nice and helpful. Also Hearthside quilts up in Kidron is a nice place.

    Believe me the next time we go out, I plan on going to the places you mentioned bakermom. It would be really neat to meet some of my fellow quilting board members. I see a mini shop hop in my future!!!

    Sounds like a really fun trip. It's always great to be able to go to different shops ! Each one seems to emphasize different things.

    Helping Hands Quilt Shop is the best place to go!! I try to go once a month, the ladies there are so helpful, I think it has to be my favorite shop to go to. I drive an hour to get there but it is so worth it. If I had to choose, that would be the only place I would go!! So glad you got to experience the great customer service!!! :)

    Another neat thing about Zincks is the bins with notions. Acouple years age I got boxes of the yellow-head quilt pins, 500 for 1.99. The last time i was there zippers were 10 cents a piece.

    The 100% cotton fabrics were between $4 - $6/yd., the batiks were $5.49/yard, flannels were about the same as the cotton and the fleece was $6.49/yard. The fat quarters were $.99 each. It was inexpensive, I got 4 1/2 yards of fabric for 22.97. I was pleased because I could have probably spent a WHOLE lot more!!! Let me know if you go and how you make out!!

    We ate at the Farmstead it was very good food and lots of it!! Their homemade peanut butter was delicious. It tasted like it had a marshmallow creme mixed in - Yummy! Yes the people were very nice and I'll definitely be back!!!

    Michelehuston,

    Do you know they are going to have an auction for the property at Helping Hands - not sure if they are relocating or what, but if you find out anything let me know!!!
