Inspiring Quilters, Stitch by Stitch
Hubby and I will be moving to Florida in about a month. Looking for shops, groups, guilds just about anything quilting. We will be living in the Palm Coast area.
I'm further south in Deerfield Beach. but look on the internet for guilds and shops. I know there are a few shops not too far away, and there's a website with Florida guilds. just enter quilt guilds florida in the search box. That's how I got started down here. We moved when we retired, 2004. We still maintain a house in Maryland as we have a daughter nearby and all of our grandkids are in Manhattan. Right now we are in Maryland and will return in the fall.
There are good shops in Orlando, Brunell, and i believe St. Aug has one. But definitely check the web. I live on the west coast so i can't be of much assistance to you. There is a great show in Jacksonville every year and also in West Palm Beach.
I live in Bunnell and thats right by Palm Coast . We have a wonderful quilt shop , the Sew and Quilt shop they are located on 100 in Marvin Gardens Plaza and there is one over in Palm Coast called the Birds Nest it is close to Walmart.
We have been here for about 9 months now so I have visited the Sew and Quilt shop, Bryds Nest has closed but Cut and Sew across the shopping center has opened...yeah!!!. I have found the shops in St Augustine and Ormond and Daytona. I would never have dreamed there would be this many quilt shops in a climate so warm. I also joined the quilt guild in Bunnell and one in St Augustine.
Cinnamon's quilt shop in Jacksonville...
oh my goodness-you NEED to go to Deland--fabulous small town great lunch spots (we LOVE Santorini--greek food) and the Quilt Shop of Deland. Make a day of it-go when they have a festival. Parking is easy-it is a nice drive and so much fun in a small town. My teens happily take the almost two hour drive over with me just to chat with everyone in town and eat at Santorini. Don't forget Quilt Fest inJax in the fall and the weekend retreats run at Camp Blanding. Want to cruise and quilt? Quilt shop of Deland has one and the patchwork bus trip in Sept is also great! Palatka has a great shop called Ms Ds...go for the Crab Festival in May/JUne and do both!
