    I will be in Denver-Estes Park area in late September for a wedding. Never been there before. Can you recommend quilt shops to visit?

    Here's some to try out:

    In Estes Park:

    http://www.cottageblissestes.com/index.html
    http://www.mtnladyquilt.com/

    Denver area:

    http://www.threadbearquilts.com/ (Longmont)
    http://www.greatamericanquilt.com/ (Denver)
    http://www.fabricexpressions.com/ (Littleton/Denver) http://www.harriethargrave.com/default.asp (Wheatridge/Denver)
    http://www.emilyssewing.com/ (Lakewood/Denver)

    Need any more suggestions? Along the "front range" of Denver and into Wyoming there are many very nice shops. You'll have a good time exploring, I'm sure!

    In Addition, you might want to check out:
    Creative Needle - Broadway & Ridge Road
    Holly's Quilt Cabin - County Line Road and Holly
    Tomorrow's Heirlooms - 132nd & I-25
    Sewciety - Castlerock, Co
    High Prairie Quilts, Parker, CO

    I frequent Great American as well as all of the above when I am in their areas. I have not been to Sewciety, but know people who have. There are several nice shops down in the Colorado Springs area too that I have been to & like very much.

    Happy Shopping & Quilting,
    Susan

    If you're there long enough look for the Denver Museum, they had a permanent quilt collection when I was there in the 90s Also the Rocky Mountain Quilt Museum, which in addition to quilt exhibits has a neat shop

    I frequent these shops as well and can vouch for them. There is a store called Denver Fabric that has all kinds of fabrics for good prices.

    Denver Fabrics used to have tons of cotton/quilting fabric, but they had a big sale a few years ago and got rid of all of it. They have started getting in some batiks and juvenile fabrics, but just a small amount.

    I was in Denver last week visiting my son and family. I always make a trip to The Great American Quilt Factory when I am there. We also went to Golden to the quilt museum. Each time that I have been there, they are displaying different quilts.

    Gee, they didn't have all of those places when I lived there. Mayby next time I visit I can visit some of them.

    Then again, I was not quilting then so was not looking for them. Thanks.

    Yes, quilting is strong in Colorado and lots of places to browse in on the front range. But, will save you a few minutes, Great Am. Quilt Factory closed this early spring 2011 and Emily's Basket is having a closing sale right now, many others are still there and going strong. Enjoy your trip. Kathy

    Does anyone know about Harriet's treadle art shop? It looks like it is just off the interstate and about 10 miles (or minutes) from the airport.

    NOOOOOOOOO !!!!! I live in Las Vegas and spend a lot of time in Denver. I'll be moving there next year. I LOVE Emily's Sewing Basket! Such a wonderful staff! Sorry to see them go.

    Another favorite place is Golden Quilt Co. It's just a block away from the Rocky Mtn quilt Museum on a great touristy main street in Golden.

    I loved Great American Quilt Shop when I got to Denver, but they sent email out several months ago saying the shop was closing (wish I could have been there for their sale ).
