Check out Appletree Fabrics in Auburn, then there is Quilts & Treasures a little further away in East Longmeadow and about mid-point a really cute shop in Wales (on Rt. 19) - Meeting House Fabrics. In a converted church. They did a great job of re-purposing it too.

Have fun.

Don't forget to stop in Charlton- the Charlton Quilt Shop is in a renovated old white church right off Route 20, and the staff is lovely. They do have a website. The upstairs has fabric and is decorated with wonderful antique and vintage sewing machines. Downstairs is the repair shop and classes. I've driven there a few times from Albany, NY and I need to go back for an antique Howe Model A boat shuttle. If you are looking for antique parts call ahead as the owner has many parts at home as well as in the shop. Parking is behind the church/shop. There are some other shops in the area but I haven't had time to visit them. They are along the Route 20/ Mass Pike corridor, and can be found by a web search. Another nice shop is Southhampton Quilts (in Southhampton), and I think there's a shop in Holden I haven't visited. You'll be near Sturbridge Village, and there are a lot of antique shops in the area. Close to the NY border is a small very friendly shop called The Pumpkin Patch in Lee.

You'll be going right past me to MA. Someday I'll make it out your end of the state, and will need advice from you. This is truly a nice Board to belong to.
