    Hi everyone, I'm visiting my daughter in Seattle this week, and I was wondering what would be the best quilt shops to visit?
    I'll be waiting to hear from you. Kathy from Texas

    Hope you have a great time. Be sure to bring your warm clothes! :lol: I would love to help you, but I am TERRIFIED of Seattle. I drive the extra hour to go to Portland instead! If you can talk your daughter into a day trip to Portland, they have a WONDERFUL store there-Fabric Depot. I can literally spend hours and hours there. They have a website too-not all of their fabric is listed. In fact, you can put an order in now (with the sale) and pick it up while you're here-no shipping! Hope you enjoy your trip-I'll be heading your way in a couple of months!

    Here is a link to the Shop Hop that just happened in the Great State of Washington. I am brand to quilting and have never been to any of them except for a long time ago with my Grandmother to The Quilt Barn in Puyallup, WA. They have since changed locations and I hear it is GREAT! I will be checking it out this week.

    Not familiar with Seattle's quilt shops, but if you have access to a car you might consider taking the ferry to the Kitsap Peninsula. There is a wonderful quilt shop in Kingston, where one ferry docks, then a few miles from there is Quilted Strait in Port Gamble, which is one of my favorite quilt shops. There is also a nice shop in Poulsbo and Material Girls in Silverdale. That would make a nice day trip from Seattle.

    Wow! Thanks for the list. I've lived here all my life and hadn't a clue! I'll have to go check some of those stores out south of King County. What fun!

    I go to

    Quiltworks Northwest
    Keepsake Cottage Fabrics
    Gathering Fabric

    Quiltworks is big and they also have a large section of Bernina's and beads.

    Keepsake is my favorite. They are very down to earth and they are located in the Country Village which has many unique shops. Just watch out for the chickens =0)

    I have only been to Gathering Fabrics once but she has a good selection. Elenor Burns had just visited there when I stopped in.

    If you do, let me know and maybe we can meet up. They're all within an hour's drive for me.

    Oh Western WA, how I love and hate it. :) It was home for nearly 22 years, and all my family is there, so part of my heart will always reside in that wet and soggy place. On the other hand, how amazing is San Antonio?! (that's rhetorical ;) ) You are lucky to call it home!

    I haven't done any fabric shopping while I was in WA but I have ordered from a really great shop in Mukilteo called Seawatch Fabrics. They specialize in batiks and Asian prints. I made a fairly large order with them a couple months back and I can't even begin to say enough good things about the fabric and the service. I would love to see their store.

    Have a wonderful and safe trip!

    Whenever we get to Pikes Place Market I have to head to Undercover Quilts. It is a small shop jam packed with beautiful fabric and very friendly helpful owners. I always find something I can't live without!

    Ksellers, if there is any chance you will be south of Seattle there is a wonderful quilt shop in Chehalis, WA called Sisters Fabrics. I try to stop in there when I'm going to Seattle.

    I'm working on a project in downtown Seattle (live in New Mexico) and when I can I visit Undercover Quilts, which is located in Pike Place. It's very sweet and has some lovely fabric we don't see in the southwest.

    I'll second that. They have a HUGE selection of wonderful flannels.

    Wow guys -- thanks so much for the info. I think I'll go to Undercover Quilts tomorrow, as we are going to Pike Place. I'll try to get to some more as the week progresses, but we're going to Victoria for the weekend.I have been given the Royal Tour of Seattle today and have had so much fun. I love the cooler weather, and even the small showers were nice after being from San Antonio in the heat wave and drought.
    Thanks again, Kathy Sellers

    If you get a chance to get to Yelm, there is a wonderful quilt shop call Gee Gee's. You name it they have got it. I have never seen so many patterns and the fabric selections is out of this world. I'll go again on my next trip to Washington.

    The Quilt Barn in Puyallup is great, I use to always go there when I visited my parents in Bonney Lake. There's a nice shop in Orting also.

    I was in Seattle about 6 weeks ago and discovered Underground Quilts. I ended up spending about $250.00 there and she shipped it back to my home for $10.95. We were headed out on an Alaskan cruise and I didn't want to carry it. I did the same thing in every port of call that we visited...and had them shipped them to my house. When I got home, I had a great time reliving my vacation by going through all of the packages!

    Mckenna Ryan moved to Bainbridge Island. Great ferry ride.
    If you go you'll have to let me know how it is. I was on Bainbridge then found out Mckenna was there after I got home. :roll: Now next time I go over I gotta go back.

    I grew up in the Seattle area. I now live on the other side of the state. It doesn't rain here much. Never thought I'd miss the rain but I do. I'm in wheat country and miss my trees and rain. And Mt. Rainier. Glad I go over a few times a year to enjoy the beauty of that area.
