    After seeing several posts today from New Yorkers I started thinking about which Quilt Shops in NYS we would recommend to others to visit. Even though I have lived here a long time I don't have any idea about shops located outside my area. When I travel I am always on the hunt for other quilt shops to visit in NYS but I often have a limited amount of time. So which shops would you identify as "definitely one not to miss" from your area?

    Here in NYC you have to go to THe City Quilter. I used to have a summer house in the Adirondacks and there was a great shop The Quilting Bee in Queensbury. Did you know it?

    Quilters corner in Ithaca NY is nice. They moved to a new store about two years ago...beautiful fabrics and great classes.

    In Esperance NY, don't miss The QuiltBug. Kris is such an accomplished quilter, the fabric choice fantastic and usually there are fresh cookies as well! A truly great combo.

    The Quilters Attic in Pine Bush and Pieceful Choices in Vernon, N.J. on the boarder near Warwick, NY. Both of these shops have a good selection of fabrics, tools, patterns.

    I agree, I have taken a class there and they are wonderful! So much patience.

    My next favorite is "The Joyful Quilter" in Glenville, NY. I am presently taking a class there and again, they are wonderful at teaching. So much patience! They just opened a new building, bigger and better!

    Both shops have a wonderful selection of fabric, I could never choose between the two.

    I did frequent it but it closed several years ago. Now Adirondack Quilts is the place to go - you won't be disappointed. It's in Glens Falls in the old Shirt Factory building. The building is worth visiting as well since they used to make men's shirts there...it too shut down several years ago but there has been a revival and it now houses many artists and the quilt shop. Great use of the space.

    I'm origanally from Buffalo and when I go back these are on the top of my list.
    My favorite are :
    Favorite Fabrics - Orchard Park NY ( an online , but they let you come in and shop) ... awesome selection great prices, staff is very frendly . Do check the hours prior as an on -line does not have same as a regular retail store.
    The Quilt Farm - Not too far from Fav Fabrics - Really diverse selction , great location in the farm country , really in a converted barn .. its full of fabric. You will think you are lost when you go to this one.
    Homespun Boutique - Ithaca- nice selection of quilt fabrics, garment fabrics , and awesome yarn.
    Quilters Corners - Ithaca - On the same street as Homespun ( State street) .

    I have quite a few "got to go to" favorites!!!

    Tiger Lily in Utica has a good selection of a little bit of everything.

    If you are looking for flannel there is Heartworks in Fly Creek (near Cooperstown). They have a large selection of other fabrics too.

    Pieceworks in Oneonta is a great shop too!! Fantastic sales!!!

    The Fieldstone House in Sidney is a huge barn with 2 floors filled to the brim with any and all quilting fabric you can imagine. Anything you need she has!! The only complaint I have is that she never marks anything down. Full price always.

    In Syracuse you can't miss Calico Gals and Mission Rose. Both are fabulous shops with great selections.

    If you want "Adirondacky" fabric from a quaint; unique shop you have to go to the Black Bear Trading Post in Inlet!!

    I know there are more but these are my fav's!!

    I now live in AZ, but my family lives in the Ithaca area of NY. I knew about Quilters Corner (if that is the one that was at 5 corners up by Cornell), but the others I haven't visited. Will have to look harder when I go next time :-D

    I love Pucky Huddle in Candor NY. Just north of Binghamton. I also like Marterial Rewards in Dansville. There is one in Big FLats I think called The Quilt Basket, not sure about thatone.

    Oh, how I miss the upstate NY shops, especially since one of only two of our local shops here is closing. My favorite upstate shops are Joyful Quilter and Adirondack Quilt.

    Log Cabin Fabrics in Ravena, and The Quilt Basket in Wappingers Falls are two I haven't seen mentioned yet.

    Also, Gloversville Sewing Center, in Gloversville - I love their selection of batiks. There's also a shop in Marcellus, NY that I liked a lot when I visited the Finger Lakes last fall, but I can't remember the name, sorry! Ahh, Patchwork Plus, thank you google.

    My favorite is Sew Nice in Norwich. I have been to a few others, but this is by far my favorite. They have beautiful fabrics and awesome teachers for their classes. I just signed up for a block of the month and drug my mom with me, and by the end of the class she decided she wanted to take it too because they are so informative on better ways to help with things that might give you a little bit of a problem. I used to have big time issues with HST but now with their help I made them perfect squares for my block!! Check them out!

    I like Gloversville Sewing Center in Gloversville
    Adirondack Quilts in Glens Falls (Queensbury)

    You should PM Barn Bum. She knows of some great Mennonite shops in the Finger Lakes Region.

    I love Pucky Huddle--aside from great fabric choices, she brings her golden retriever in too! Also, in the same area, more or less, is Patchwork Angels in Endicott. Wonderful selection, wonderful women.

    Patti's quilt shop in Glens Falls is a great shop. Patti has just remodeled and added more space for fabrics and classes. She is also a Janome dealer and has an on-site technician to help if there is a machine problem during classes. There are three shops in Glens Falls.
