Visit Your Local Quilt Shop Day

Mark your calendars and plan a trip to your favorite local quilt shop! I have several favorites that I would like to share with you... I live in the Twin Cities area and there are sooooo many great shops.... here are just a few that I love to visit....
Eagle Creek Quilt Shop
333 2nd Avenue West
Shakopee, Minnesota

A top ten shop ~ Quilt Sampler Magazine 2003
Best of Quilt Sampler Magazine 2007

I love to visit Eagle Creek Quilt Shop, the staff is super friendly and the coffee is always on...
It's located in a restored train depot.

This shop is located pretty close to me, so when I'm out of thread, or I'm out of needles, or  need
a fat quarter or two, this is my go to shop... Quilt Cove is located in Eagan, Minnesota

As you can see, it's full of samples and all sorts of quilty items!

My all time favorite shop in the metro....
located in White Bear Lake
It's a Top Ten quilt Shop 2001

Love Bear Patch Quilting for all of the lovely fabric and samples.
I can almost always find what I'm looking for here!

Right now the Quilt Dog is hosting a Quilt Doodle Trunk Show!
They are located in Cloquet Minnesota. Stop on by and check out my Trunk Show!

The Quilted Dog is also having a Quilt Doodle Tea Towel of the Month Club!
Stop on by and check it out!!!
I love my local quilt shopSo here are a few of my favorites... if you live in Minnesota, there are so many great shops! If I blogged on all of them...

Happy quilting!


  1. Thanks for giving me some stops on my next visit to the Cities. I used to live in Lino Lakes and loved to visit Bear Patch! Plus it's fun to spend the day in charming downtown White Bear Lake.

  2. I didn't know there was such a day. Perhaps it should be EVERY day ; )

  3. I wish I had a similar shop around the corner, here ;-)

  4. Hello! I'm visiting through Grow Your Blog. I'm quilter too and will definitely follow your blog now that I've found it!

  5. Hello Cindy, I am happy to visit you for the Grow Your Blog party! It is nice to meet you. Your blog is amazing as well as your fabric art!
    Those are some fab quilt shops! Is there anything better than walking into a quilt shop????
