    Well it has been 98 days and the shop will re-open tomorrow! I am positive there has been a tremendous amount of physical and emotional effort in getting it back up and running. It is located off exit 348 in Ringgold, GA on Alabama Highway. If you are traveling in our area, be sure to stop in and say hello.

    (I am not involved with the shop other than being a customer and admirer!)

    I have been in this LQS a few years ago when I was living in Marietta Ga. A friend of mine was with me and we have a picture of each of us in the front of this shop. We both found awesome fabric there to make us our quilts. Am hoping to be back in the Marietta area within the next few months and if so I will be sure to plan a trip to this shop once again. Is it in the same place?

    Yes it is on the same site. If heading north to Chattanooga, take exit 348, turn left and follow Alabama Highway for about a half mile and it is on the left.

    U know, here is a thought......mayb u can take that pic of u and your friend and copy it and put in a frame to go on the wall in the shop to show old shop, I think that would b a nice "shop warming gift" for something that was cherished for sure, what u all think???

    That is exciting news! I will stop by next time I am in the area. The devastation from that storm is just unbelievable. Amazing the spirit and courage of people to get through the storm and move on.

    Would love to stop by, but it would be a bit of a drive from California, so I will just send my good wishes.

    I am planning to shop there today! After the tornados hit there and lavender lime closed due to the economy, I had to buy fabric online. It's nice, but I like to feel and see it before buying. See you there maybe? :)

    I do not live in your country. Please tell that lady i think she is wonderful to pick up all her losses and carry on again. And to all you people passing there, kindly support her and wish her well from me in South Africa.
