Great Places To Feed Your Fabraholic/Notionholic Tendencies

12 09 2008

If you are always looking for the next Fabric/Batting Heaven or Notion Nirvana, I have some great suggestions for you. Most of the stores have online shopping. I don’t have any association with the shops; they are shops that I think give great service and have great fabric and other goodies.

Creations Quilt Shop, Kerrville, Texas

If you ever get anywhere near the Texas Hill Country, you have to visit this shop. You can plan on seeing fabulous fabric, great quilting ideas and a staff that will make you feel like a queen.  BTW: They have beautiful batiks and cool kits. http://www.creations-online.com

Fat Quarter Shop

The best online source for fat quarters, 1 yd cuts, patterns, and fabric that is going to be new and exciting. I LOVE to visit their web site and their blog. AWESOME service! http://fatquartershop.com/

Las Colchas

Are you looking for reproduction fabric? Unusal designs for quilts? Las Colchas (spanish for The Blanket) is located in historic southtown area of San Antonio in a turn of the century Sears Roebuck kit house. Darling location, awesome fabric, reasonable prices. http://www.lascolchas.com (they also have a link to their blog on the site)

The Quilt Haus

Deanne Quil has done an exceptional job of buying awesome fabric for children’s quilts, beautiful batiks and the newest fabrics available from the largest vendors. Deanne also has designed quilt patterns that are fun and easy to piece. Located in New Braunfels, TX, the shop has an online store. http://www.quilthaus.com

Quilter’s Point

If batiks are your weakness, this is the shop for you! They specialize in batiks and have an awesome collection. They also have a wonderful staff and are a vendor for APQS. Their website has recently been revamped. The store is also actively involved with Threads of Love, which provide quilts and clothing for premature babies.  http://www.quilterspoint.com

Notions, Thread, Books, DVDs

Columbia River Quilting: These folks are fast, efficient and have competitive pricing on books, etc. They had the best price for a TOWA gauge when I was comparison shopping.  http://www.columbiariverquilting.com/

Kings Men Quilting Supply: Another great source for just about everything you could possibly need for quilting. They have good prices on thread, media and magna glide bobbins. http://www.kmquiltingsupply.com/

If any of you have any other suggestions of quilt shops or notions vendors, I would love to hear from you so that we could post those as well.

This last line is NQR, but please remember the folks who are in the path of Hurricane Ike here in Texas and then into Louisana and Arkansas. It is going to be nasty.
