    I am going to be in North Carolina in the next couple of weeks and was hoping some of you might have a favorite place to direct me to for quilt shopping. Do any of the textile mills that are still there have factory shops? I am gonna be in the Raleigh/Durham area.
    THANKS!

    Almost next door!
    I heard that there is a new one in Apex, NC, but never heard the name of it. Possibly someone else knows the name.
    There is a good one in Cary called ETC Crafts on E. Chatham Street in CAry, NC. I shop at Bernina World of Sewing on Glennwood Ave in Raleigh. My favorite is not in Raleigh but in a little farming community called Selma. The shop is the Whistle Stop Quilt Shop. A lovely place with a wonderful staff. She was featured in American Patchwork and Quilting a few years ago and has a web site too. A new shop that is on line as well as retail is Wish Upon A Quilt. She is only open 10 to 2 from Tuesdays through Saturdays. Her prices are cheaper than the Bernina store, but its hard for me to get to since I work 7 to 5 most days. If you have time to spare, pm me and maybe we could meet for cofee one day.
