New York Quilt Shops

Last month, I was traveling for work in New York.  I, of course, visited several quilt shops.  I told myself that I would only buy fabric that was either a) on clearance or b) so unique that I hadn't seen it anywhere else before.  I did not leave a single shop empty-handed.  I did not take my own pictures at a couple of the shops because I was either out of time or forgot, but I will post about all 4 shops.

The Joyful Quilter - Glenville, NY

The Joyful quilter was a spacious shop.  Rarely, do you find a shop that has plenty of space to peruse the fabric while still having plenty of fabric.  This shop had a small clearance section that was worth a look.  Their fabric was laid out in a logical way and the staff was friendly.  What more could you ask for?

The Happy Quilter - Valley Cottage, NY

This quilt shop was very cute!  The person on staff was amazingly friendly and helpful.  I found some great fabrics and will definitely visit again if I'm ever in that area.

Sew What's New - Islip, NY

I have been to this shop more than one.  They have friendly staff and a great selection.  I asked about a finish the bolt sale and was told that they normally don't, but hang on and they will ask.  The lady looked at the half full bolt in my hands and said "sure, why not!"

My kind of shop!!

The City Quilter - New York, NY

What can I say about the City Quilter.  I love this shop.  the fabric selection is amazing!  I always find something that I just have to have.  the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff seems to be a hit or miss situation.  I have been to this shop twice.  The first time, they were nice and helpful.  the second time, not so much.  Maybe after my third trip, I'll take an average. :)
