    The Sewing Room / Tea Time Calicos is located in Beaverton in the Fred Meyers complex right off Hwy 217, and Canyon Road.

    There used to be a number of GREAT QS in the area, but so many of them couldn't keep up with the rise in prices. You might also try the Mill End Store. I've always been able to find things at nice prices. Good Luck

    Be careful if you do a search though. A lot of quilt shops are closing and coming up on a search does not mean they are still open. Voice of experience here.

    If you want to go to the Disneyland of quilt shops, go to Hollyhill Quilt Shoppe in west Linn OR. You can't believe how gorgeous it is. A feast for the eyes. The address is: 1914 Willamette Falls Dr. They are closed Mondays and Sundays. It is well worth the trip. If you like thai food, there is the best restaurant on the same block.

    I forgot to mention, many of the Moda Fabrics design team go to Hollyhill to teach seminars. They love it too. I went to one by Joanna Figueroa. My BFF and I go for special occasions. Again, it is gorgeous!

    These places look great. We are collecting phone numbers in addition to addresses PokerDiva, just in case! We did google quilt shops, but quilters always know the best ones locally! Thanks everyone for your input

    The quilt shop in Clackamas is literally behind the Super 8 hotel, right off the highway. It is a smaller shop but they are friendly and helpful. Unfortunately, I can't remember the name either!
    My mom and I went to the Fabric Depot while we were visiting my daughter and it blew me away! I need to go back next time we visit. Good thing I didn't know there was a Mill End Outlet....LOL

    Thanks everyone. We had a great weekend. Started at the Fabric Depot, then we went to The Sewing Room, Hollyhill, The Pine Needle, The Common Thread, Mills End, and the Quilters Corner. We actually went to The Common Thread twice actually. It was a great weekend and I found a ton of stuff I just could not live without! :-D

    Well I'm pretty late to the party, but for future reference... I love Cool Cottons. It's a small shop, but has the most wonderful collection of fabric. The owner is a super nice lady. I was thrilled to find a Japanese fabric that I had been eying on the internet, but wanted to see in person. Another nice shop is Bolt in the Alberta neighborhood. If you visit Bolt, be sure to eat at Pine State Biscuit (Cool Cottons is near the other Pine State location on Belmont St).
