Just came home from a short Alaskan Cruise and found the best quilt shop in the tiny town of Skagway AK. They have fabrics kits, boolt, special cuts of fabrics I have never seen befoe -- good quality and good prices as well
They have animal prints - bears, moose, whales etc - wooded scenes - birds - northern lights and for those of you who also knit and crochet - alaskan yarns
check this out: www.quiltalaska.com
www.changingthreads.com
their fabrics are high quality and not real pricey (1/2 yd for $5.25-$5.50) and they have some unusual kits as well. They ship USPS - what a great surprise I came home to !

oh my goodness- $5.25- $5.50 a half yard is (good prices) in your world??? i am so sorry---
that comes out to $10.50-$11 a yard!!! that is WAY EXPENSIVE in my world.
a really really good sale would make those prices maybe somewhere in the neighborhood of my willingness to even look...at those prices i can not afford to even click on their web site...wow-

You are definitely hard core! Go on an Alaskan cruise, and check out the quilt store!

I hope you enjoyed yourselves - I've seen brochures and talked to people who've gone, it's supposed to be beautiful!
