Inspiring Quilters, Stitch by Stitch
Great discussion to start! Can't wait to find out about more quilt shops.
I really like the Country Store Quilt Shop in Watertown, TN. on Hwy 70. Gorgeous, good quality fabrics, huge selection. The owner is friendly and helpful.
My favorite shop is The Cherry Pit on Bruce St, downtown Sevierville,TN...Jane Washington and her staff are awesome folks, very knowledgeable and oh so friendly...love them all. But, since I live in Christiana,TN now which is Middle TN...we have 1 shop close by in Murfreesboro on Memorial Blvd...called The Quilt Connection...It's a nice shop...small but full of goodies...The owner is very sweet and knowledgeable...you would love this store~~~
Lelena, do you live in the Knoxville area? I always liked to shop at Machine Quilting by Iva in Sevierville and MamMaw's too...Holloway's is in Cosby,TN off hwy 321 from Gatlinburg, TN
Well to tell you the truth, I've never seen a quilt store I didn't like~~~;)
Marcia, will remember you and your family in our prayers.... with God, all things are possible!
My favorite shop is also The Cherry Pit in Sevierville, TN. I love all the ladies there. The atmosphere is "just right." I have already been to two of their "Quilting Schools". Holloway's is also great. Since I am on the upper east end of Tennessee, I am slightly limited in quilt shops. But, there is Tennessee Quilts and Jonesborough along with, I believe, the Quilting Bee nearby. All are wonderful. :D
Prayers also going up for your son and your family Marcia.
Thank you so much Lisa...it's helping so much...next time you're at the Pit tell them all I said hello...Happy Quilting....
Tim is heading for radiation now...he's had 6 chemo treatments and they consider him in remission but that means there is less than a certain amount of cancer cells present in the lymph nodes...non-Hodgkins lymphoma is considered incurable but it can go into remission and stay there the rest of your life...God works miracles everyday and I know he's working one in Tim...thank you for all your prayers....
Yes, Lalena, I live in the Memphis area (Bartlett). The quilt shop I mentioned, The Country Store Quilt Shop, is in Watertown, TN (near Lebanon, TN), which is in Middle Tn just east of Nashville. My dad lives in a neighboring county, and I found it on a visit to see him last September. They did have reproduction Civil War fabrics. They do not sell online.
As for the Memphis area and quilt shops: I have only found three shops. The Quilt Barn in Arlington, TN (in Shelby County) is a pretty good quilt shop. They offer classes ( I need to check these out), and they have a good selection of fabrics.
I get to Nashville now and then. I will check The Country Store Quilt Shop next time I go. I'm going to have to map these places out. Memphis is farther out since I am in Knoxville. But I have family in Fayetteville, Tn in Lincoln County.
