Mark your calendars! January 24th is Visit Your Local Quilt Shop Day! And in honor of this prestigious day I would like to share my favorite local shops.
I can't pick just one since there are a few I haunt :) My three favorites are Quilted Treasures, a "Gem in the Pines", The Little Shop, and Sam's Fabric (which isn't a quilt shop per say but they have a huge selection of novelty, dots, stripes and Kona cottons.) Unfortunately, I don't have a picture of the Little Shop, but here are the two I go to most.
I love supporting small businesses! Without them we would only have mainstream conveyer belt type mega marts that have no soul! Sorry.....but yea I really love my local shops. Its always so nice to go in and chat with the owners, poke around, and get some really great buys. These places have turned into a home away from home and I'm sorry, but you'll wont get that at the "you know what mart" fabric department.
So get out there and SHOP LOCAL FIRST!
