    I found the Quilter's Travel Companion online. They list quilt shows, guilds, shop hops as well as local shops in the area. It's great! Granted not all shops are listed, but it is a good start when you are traveling and need a quick reference for a quilt/fabric fix.

    I haven't posted a link before. I hope this works:

    Thank you so much. I had an outdated book and will travel from the tip of Texas to Missouri in June. I really wanted to stop at some shops, but mostly in Missouri.
    Somewhere in all my clutter I have some original Kansas City Star Newpaper quilt patterns that my DH's mother saved. She died when he was 9yrs old, so I never refer to her as my mother-in-law. I can hardly wait. I can feel myself walking into the shops, being greeted my sweet ladies, and walking out loaded with FABRIC!!!!

    Oh good! I'm glad it will help you find more shops. YOu all are welcome. Thanks to this website, I got to see two quilt shows while traveling through Oregon and Nevada. The one in Reno was especially good because they held their quilt show at a historic automobile museum. Quilts for me and cars for DH!

    It's been a few years since I was there, but I remember some very nice quilt shops in Missouri. Enjoy!

    I'm sorry to hear that although I am not surprised. I have come across quilt shops with no website at all. Yep, back to the old reliable - the Yellow Pages. :D

    The Quilter's Travel Companion is a great resource. The online edition only lists those shops who paid to be on the website. The book has over 1500 more shops than what shows on the site. I don't have a website, but I have an ad in the book. Expressions By Ewe in British Columbia. By the way, if you are travelling to Alaska thru B.C. please stop by.

    Thank you for that. I am going to order a copy of the book. Just have to check if they have a secure web site otherwise will phone them. Would love to visit Alaska if I have enough time.
    Thanks again,
    Sharyn
