My next stop was Wheeler Oregon. The quilt shop in Cannon beach had given me a copy of the "Quilt Run 101" for February 2008 - so I was set up with a great list of quilt shops along Highway 101 for the rest of the trip.
Creative Fabrics does not have a web page for me to provide a line. Wheeler is a very small town with the one main road being Highway 101. The main shopping area is only about 3 blocks long. Creative Fabrics is a great little quilt shop. It has a selection of non cotton fabric as well as a good selection of 100% cotton quilting fabric. The staff were friendly and I went there twice - I decided I needed more of the fairy fabric and needed to go back. When I went back I bought I more than I had planned. That is always a sign of a good quilt shop - you buy more then what you went in for - LOL
I loved the fairy fabric and I bought one yard - and then on thinking of the quilt that I planned to make with it realized I needed more. I love the fat quarters of the Chinese fabric. I'm not sure what I will do with it, maybe a bag. I also bought some fabric here that has been given away already - so not in the picture.
The quilt shops in the U.S. seem to have lots of pre-cut yards and half yards - not just pre-cut fat quarters. I don't see that a lot in the shops in Canada. I like the pre-cut yards. I found it nice and easy to pick up a couple of yards - if it had not been pre-cut I probably would have picked up fat quarters instead. Of course the cost of $9.00 a yard makes it easier to pick up as well.
These are a few pre-cut yards I picked up at Creative Fabrics. I definitely liked this shop.
