    You must hit Rosie's Calico Cupboard. Huge shop, lots and lots of fabrics, good prices.
    Try Googling quilt shops in San Diego.

    I know, I know, I know, choose me!
    Cozy Quilt Shop in El Cajon. 2940 Jamach Rd. Suite H.

    I went yesterday and as soon as I walked in I heard two Hello's. They have always greeted me when I walked through the door and although it has been several months since I had been there they called me by name. The staff are all friendly, knowledgable and if they dont have the answer to my question, they know who to ask or where to go , for the answer. :lol: :lol:

    Tell them about the Quilting Board. I mentioned it yesterday and I am sure they would love to know who you are. Welcome to our neck of the woods. I live in Spring Valley. ;)

    Both of the ones mentioned are great. I also liked Quilter's Choice in Chula Vista when I visited.

    Neither one of these are real close to Shelter Island.

    Rosie's Calico Cupboard is at 71st on El Cajon Blvd.
    Cozy Quilt Shop is in Rancho San Diego on Jamacha Rd.

    http://www.rosiescalicocupboard.com
    7151 El Cajon Blvd. San Diego 92115 (approx. 20 min.)

    http://www.cozyquilt.com
    2940 Jamacha Rd. El Cajon 92019 (approx. 30 min.)

    Here are the links. You could do mapquest to get driving directions from your hotel.

    Where will you be staying? Is this your first time in San Diego?

    We are staying at the Bay Club Hotel and Marina. We have been to San Deigo about 3 times but it was about 10 years ago. We are going to the Zoo and then I want to go to Rosie's for fabric and since it will be my birthday, thats my gift. After that its the beach and just relax.

    I just did a mapquest:

    Rosie's Calico Cupboard is 14.08 miles away, 22 min. drive.

    Cozy Quilt Shop is 20.11 miles away, 28 min. drive.

    I hope you can get to both of them. :D

    You will LOVE that hotel..it's right on the bay..the military ships come & go & it's just so awesome to see them come through the channel.
    I live up the street from Shelter Island! Rosie's is a must. It's about 20 min. from the hotel.

    Not as nearby but Quilt in a Day is in San Marcos as is Paradise Quilters and a little down the road in Vista is Fat Quarters. You could make it a quilt run!

    You can take me to the Zoo when you go. Lived in San Diego several years ago and went to the Zoo at least twice a month. Absolutely fascinating. Always wondered who was in the zoo, people or animals.

    Skavanau,

    I live in Vista(San Diego County), and there are about 20 quilt shops in the county each with it's own speciality. If you want to 'PM' me, I can get you more information for most of the shops.

    We were in San Diego to visit my brother & neice back in late 70s (yes long time ago) & the Zoo is a must do. I'm sure it's changed some, but fabulous. That was before computers were out & I wasn't into quilting yet. My how times have changed.

    The Zoo has changed quite a bit since then! All for the better, too! I love the new way of showing the animals, make sure that you go by the new elephant exhibit!! The kids loved it! Take the tour bus, it's well worth the money.
    Have fun in San Diego! We are taking two of the grandkids to Sea World in July. :thumbup:

    Hey Sharon,That's a bummer about Rosie's.

    Let's run you up the coast instead of inland:
    From I-5:
    Starry Night Hollow, in Encinitas, 895 Saxony Rd
    Aretoy, in Oceanside, 1656 Ord Way
    then across the 78:
    Fat Quarters, in Vista, 728 Civic Center Dr
    Quilt in a Day, in San Marcos, 1955 Diamond St
    Quilters Paradise, in Escondido, 1451 Montiel Rd, Ste 140

    I love all five of these shops, and the staff are all friendly.

    If you want some other shops (I have more favorites), pm me and I will give you my phone number, and could possibly even meet up with you, I'm not working until August 30th now.

    Chris
