    Hi,
    I'll be traveling to a quilt show in Austin, Tx in a couple of weeks. We plan on stopping at a quilt shop in Brenham and two in Giddings. Does anyone have a favorite shop in Austin near the Palmer Center that We shouldn't miss?

    Happy Quilting,
    Helen

    Unfortunately, there are no LQS's near Palmer Center. The Quilt Store is a few miles north of there on Anderson Lane...wonderful shop.

    If you're also going south of Austin, there are two wonderful shops in New Braunfels, about an hour south of Austin on Interstate 35. The Quilt Haus on Business 35 and Oak Leaf Quilts downtown near the Plaza (and near a fabulous bakery!).

    There aren't any shops I know of downtown near the center, unless brand new ? - but there are several north of downtown. The Quilt Store and Sew Much More are both on Anderson Ln off I-35 N, and Honey Bee Quilts is off 183 N (Research Blvd) at Anderson Mill Rd / Jollyville. There's also a shop up in Round Rock, can't remember the name ... and the ones mentioned prev down in New Braunfels. Also a very nice shop up in Georgetown - Poppies ? Haven't been there in awhile ...
    Too much to see in a day, that's for sure ! Have fun ! :)

    Hi .
    Some of the shop you might be visiting will have booths at the show. We will have over 70 vendors at the show. And if there not there we will gladly give you the direction to there shops.
    I will be in the RW&B booth at the show. Come by and see me.
    You will love the All around theBlock shop in Gidding. Also Gerlins.
    Texas has a lot of good shop that aren't to far from each other.

    Thanks for your help,Ladies. If we have enough time, The Quilt Store and Sew Much More look promising. Honey Bee Quilts will have a booth at the show. Bobbie, we'll be sure to see you at the RW&B booth.

    Happy Quilting,
    Helen

    Be warned if you're allergic to cats, you don't want to go to

    I notice that on her website, no problem.

    I visited a shop in Eureka Springs, Arkansas that had a large rabbit on the counter. The rabbit took your credit card and gave it to the owner.

    Ready to Sew is located in Cedar Park. Their phone number is 512-260-4100 It is a wonderful quilt shop. It is laid out nicely, i.e. there is actually room to check out the fabric. I don't like shops that are so crammed that you can't appreciate the fabric because it is stacked up everywhere. Ready to Sew has a wonderful homey feel to it with a topnotch owner and staff. The fabric is displayed nicely and they offer a great selection. I hope you will be able to go there if you have time.

    This is kinda an old thread, but I had to put this with this one. Some friends and I went quilt shop hopping, and we went to one called Stitch Lab - http://www.stitchlab.biz/shop_home.html

    This shop is awesome; it has a lot of 'mod' fabrics and fabrics that you 'normally' don't find in other shops. They also offer classes, and the shop keeper is a hoot. :)
