    I am trying to find quilt shops in Valparaiso, and whenever I do a search on the web, only brings one shop up!
    We are going to wedding in June, does anyone have any suggestions, or a website to go to find more?

    Thanks for your help!!

    I think someone else on the board lives near Valpo hopefully they will be able to give you more help . Depending on what way you drive you might be able to squeeze Ericas in .

    We have just one shop in Valparaiso, IN called Needle & Thread. It's a great shop and the owner, Marlene is fantastic! You might catch her at some of the quilt shows in NW Indiana as a vendor.

    They used to have a Hancocks but now Valpo residents use Michigan City or Merrillville JoAnns or Hobby Lobby across from the Merrillville mall (Westfield) when they're looking for the bigger stores...or shopping online.

    You will love Shipshewana, Indiana

    Also if you have time go to Nappanee, Indiana not too far from Shipshewana!
