    I am travelling to St. Cloud and Forest Lake next week, I won't have a lot of time but I would love to stop by a quilt shop or two..

    Does anyone here have a favorite quilt shop in either of these two cities?

    I just googled quilt shops in St. Cloud, MN and it came up with several. You might want to check that out to. That is what I did for my trip to Maui here later this week and I now have a quilt lesson all scheduled for when I get there. Have fun on your trip.

    Forest Lake has Silver Lane Quilting ...it's on Hwy 97 between the city of FL and the freeway (35).

    Oh, yes, Grubers in St. Cloud is AWESOME!!!

    Yes, St. Cloud is a wonderful town. Even though I live 2 hours from there, that is where I go to shop when I need to get to a large town for shopping. Like everyone else said, Grubers Qult Shop is wonderful. I think there actual address is Waite Park But they are located directly behind the CrossRoads Mall which is on Division Street. Mill End Textiles is located just a coule blocks from there. I also always go to Crafts Direct (also with an address of Waite Park--and is located by Menards and the Pepsi plant). Gruber's is a wonderful Quilt Store. I know not to even go in it if my budget doesn't allow for any quilting material when I am in St. Cloud--as they have so much that it's hard to get out of the store without buying something! Enjoy your MInnesota visit.

    Grubers in Waite Park on the NW corner of Hiway 15 and 3rd St. N.is wonderful and huge. But also you should go to Aunt Annies Quilts and Silks in Avon, MN. Just a 20 min. drive NW of St. Cloud, on 94, to Avon. Take a right at the top of the exit ramp, head down the main street and it'll be on the left. It's wonderful too. St. Cloud also has Mill End Textiles, 2 blocks west of Grubers, Hancock Fabrics on the SE corner of Hiway 15 and 3rd St. N. and JoAnns on Division and 33rd Ave, in St. Cloud. I'm from St. Cloud and prefer Grubers and Aunt Annies- they are the best, I think.

    You may also want to go to Craft's Direct in Waite Park. It is the MOST awesome craft store and have lots of quilt fabric, patterns and every other crafting thing you could imagine!

    Yup, I forgot this one. Still Grubers and Aunt Annies have the nicest fabric.

    Grubers in St. Cloud is big and I can spend a good hour looking around. The one in Forest Lake is small but if you are lucky Doug Leko will be working. Amazing young man that knows his quilting. I think if you google Doug Leko you can look him up. If you are near White Bear they have two shops. The Bear Patch (big)and Rosebuds Cottage (little).
    Have fun.
