My Favorite Quilt Store. This is a hard question for me since I have been avoiding the stores since I am "no buy". I was also away from quilting a bit and got out of the habit. Let me tell you that I love all quilt stores. They all have a personality of their own. I like to look at all shops just to see what kind of character a store has. I also like just the "right" level of customer service as well. When I go into these shops I love when you are greeted with a warm "Hello, how are you today? Is there anything special you are looking for?" I don't like to be hovered over but if I turn to look for someone to help me I like that I don't have to play "Hide and Seek" to get that help.

With this said I will mention a few stores that I frequent. Quiltmakers in Dallas, Texas. Quilt Country in Lewisville, Texas and The Carriage House Quilt Shoppe in Plano, TX. They each have their own personality. They all have a nice selection of fabric, books and patterns. Each has a little something that no one else has.

Which one of these has a post office inside? That is the one I've been in and it's a neat store. My guys left me there while they went back to the Harley SHop.

So many choices! You are blessed. I really should go exploring and find a few more options, but I so love the one I go to all the time, I never get motivated enough. I love my time at home even more than I do the shopping time! I know - that's a bit odd, but I really am a home-body at heart.

I agree about the character of a store it is most important. Also that love perfumey potpourri smell wins me over every time!

Okay, so when do we want to get together and do a shop hop of our own? I haven't been to all of these places. I have only been to the Carrollton store and then of course Suzy's in Garland.
