    As a Canadian Snow Bird, I will be spending the winter months in Florida, between Fort Myers & Fort Lauderdale. Since we shop at both cities I need some advice as to where to shop for quilting fabrics. Your help would be much appreciated.

    I already wrote what's available on the SE coast (from Jupiter to Miami) in this post:

    http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-79514-1.htm#1964095


    While I haven't checked out every shop on the west coast, I will tell you that the http://www.quiltlovershangout.com/ is one of my favorite shops. It's located in a sort of deserted shopping center behind a Perkins(?). If you enter right by the Perkins, it's towards the shops in the back to your right.
    I really, really like the Hangout.

    Not far from the Hangout, is http:www.susieqquilts.com‎ - I've never been. I don't know why since it's so close. Next trip for sure.

    http://www.sewstudio.com/ is in Naples, not far off of 75. I think they used to have a shop in Ft. Myers too but it, like many others in the area, closed in recent years.

    I'm sure others more local to the SW coast can add to the list.

    Enjoy your stay!

    And if you can edit the thread title to reflect "Florida Fabric Shops," that would probably be more helpful to other readers.

    Duh. Maybe that's because I put the wrong link in the post upthread.

    Try this link to the list of SE Florida (Jupiter to Miami) quilt shops:

    http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-79514-1.htm#1964095

    Sorry about that.

    Here's the link for the shop http://sewwithlaura.com/

    I didn't include them in my original list of shops because I never think of them having a large fabric selection. But, yes, I have heard the customer service is great.

    But I'll stop by to check it out - I'm always up for a new fabric experience.

    Um, Dunedin is on the Gulf of Mexico, near Tampa, which is the west coast. It's about 2.5 hours north of Ft. Myers.

    @Thea:
    Thanks for the heads up on the brand new shop in Boca Raton. It wasn't there this past summer.

    Actually Laura's is not a quilt store. When I think of a quilt store I think of bolts and bolts of fabric. She does have some fabrics but not a whole lot YET. I DO AGREE that Laura's is a really great store and the hospitality is awesome. I drive from Okeechobee to shop in West Palm Beach and Laura's will greet you by name and often a hug. They have alot of sewing, embroidery supplies and are a dealer for Babylock and Brother. If you are looking for feet for your machine, thread, embroidery designs go to Laura's. They also do repair and service on all makes of sewing and embroidery machines. Laura's is one of my favorite sewing stores too but is not the traditional quilt store.

    A favorite quilt store that I love is JamPatch http://www.jampatch.com/ and I think it is in Stuart, not far from Jupiter, Florida. It is right off US1. If you are in the West Palm area, I love My Quilt Shoppe, http://www.myquiltshoppefl.com/index.asp on Jog Rd. And ButtonWood http://www.buttonwoodquilts.com/ on 10th Ave, I think. These are really nice quilt shops. I shop there frequently when in the area.

    Wow! And it's only a couple of minutes off 95. That's worth a day trip.
    Thanks.

    I spent an hour in there one day and wandered around just looking. Very over whelming! Never did buy a thing! I will go back someday.
    They had three long arm machines just going all by themselves. Fascinating. I did see lots of fabric in there I wanted but found those online much cheaper. Quite an experience after being used to tiny little stores.
    :-D
