I want to give a thumbs up to two quilt stores that are within driving distance from my home. Both have a great fabric selection and all the tools and supplies you could desire. I'm not affiliated with either one or even take their classes, but they are a great resource that any quilters near Chattanooga should know about.
Lavender Lime Quilt Shop, at www.lavenderlimeinspires.com/ is the biggest little shop you have ever seen. It is tucked away in a strip mall and from the outside just wouldn't seem to have room for all the great stuff they stock. If you're near East Ridge, TN stop by.
Sew Bee It, A Quilter's Garden, at www.sew-bee-it.com/ is located near Rossville, GA. It has recently changed hands, and while I haven't visited the store since the new owner took control, I used to go quite regularly and loved it. Their website has a virtual tour and the store doesn't appear to have drastically changed. They have a great selection, a varied class schedule and good classroom facilities. I think they're worth a look, too.
Me, I'm going to fight off the impulse to browse the stores for a while. If I just didn't have all those great online stores bookmarked..................
