My husband and I are planning a small vacation in the south eastern USA in mid December. Can anyone recommend some good quilt shops in that area of the country? We'll be south of Arkansas since he wants to play some golf if he can. I'd like to get started on planning our trip before he changes his mind! LOL!

Thanks in advance!

Roxana,  Where in the southeast are you going?  I know a great shop in East TN in Sevierville called  The Cherry Pit.  Another further EAST in Jonesborough, TN called Tennessee Quilts.  Hope this helps you along.

Roxanna, If you can be more specific about the States you will be in, we can give you better info.   ???   Susan

Susan, thanks for your question. Good thinking!

We'll be heading toward Florida from central Arkansas. I'm going to ask him if we can go out through TN but he may prefer Mississippi, Alabama, and Georgia and then down to Florida. Hope you can help me. ... If I can convince him the TN route, we could go through TN, then the Carolina's, then Georgia, and toward Florida and then come back through Alabama and Mississippi and northern Mississippi. We have to be in south Arkansas on December 20. I think we will leave here around December 10 or 11. 

Hope that makes it more clear!

Roxana, "Quilters Travel Companion," is a great book showing quilt shops located in every state with directions, adresses and phone #s. I have it and use it when we travel and have found some wonderful shops that I would not have known existed. If you can, you can call ahead and make sure they are still open. I have found the book to be reliable, but one time the shop we went to in Virginia had closed after the book was published. You can get the book on the internet for about 20.00 When you finally decide what route you will be driving I will give you names and addresses of shops in Florida.   Susan

Roxanna,

My aunt in Florida recommends Fabric Art Shop in Lake City, FL, but hasn't shopped there in about 5 or 6 years.  When I lived in Orlando, I drove to Winter Garden to shop at Nancy's Quilt Shop.  It was towards the small side but carried a really good selection of brand name fabrics.  I always found great things to use.  Again, I would call first because I haven't lived in Florida for 15 years.

I also would recommend the Quilters' Travel Companion.  I use mine all the time.

Thanks for the suggestion. I had one of those several years ago but I expect it is out of date. I have an APP on my phone too that QCA puts out. I just haven't figured out how to use it yet. It doesn't seem to lend toward planning. Susan, how far south are you in Florida? If we skip the TN route, we may get further down in FL.

Barbara, thanks too for your suggestion.
