The Quilt Basket in York was the shop (we think) that best got into the Shop Hop event.  They had a large map of Nebraska with flags at all the towns in which there was a participating quilt shop.

One half of the shop was dedicated to quilts from past Shop Hops.  It was fun to see the different patterns and fabrics in each quilt.

Common Threads in Syracuse, was packed with charm.  In fact, Michelle and I found the whole town of Syracuse to be very enticing and left more money in that area than any other!

This particular quilt shop is located in an old bank.  The space still has the heavy metal vault door and an ornately painted safe, both original pieces.

If you are looking for batiks, The Fabric Fairie in Auburn is THE shop!  Tons of samples made up in the artistic prints and more patterns and books than you'll know what to do with!  VERY inspiring!

We were lucky to get 2 shops in Auburn!  Needles I was east (?) of Fabric Fairie, about 5 minutes.  What a change from the average 1 hour that was between most shops!!

I loved how these guys stuck to the theme of the hop "Cooking Up Great Quilts" by putting their kits in large wooden salad bowls with tongs.  So cute!!

Did you see the previous shops?

hi mel
I would love to have a quilting shop in buenos aires! unfortunately we only have a neighborhood where we can buy fabrics, but it's quiet difficult to choose; I have posted it in my previous post, piles of fabrics everywhere, and mixed :(
