    Default Las Vegas area shops?

    My mom and I are going to Las Vegas next week and we're planning on spending time going to quilt shops. We're renting a car and are not opposed to a road trip. We were thinking that we could go to California, Arizona, Utah or the rest of Nevada, but we have nothing to lead us in any particular direction.

    Does anyone have good suggestions for us?

    I jsut got back from 3 days in LV. There is a quilt shop in Henderson...a neighboring city to LV. It is on Stephanie street. I am not able to go there cause my husband doesn't want to be bothered, but... I read/hear it is pretty nice store. But do a google search for another one... I forget where it is... on Charleston Rd I think . But other than those 2 I dont' think there are any more in LV. As for CA where I live... th ere is a cool one (so I hear) in Rancho Cucamonga...where I just moved away from after 35 years! And one in Upland too..right next to RC. Google them. This is the Inland Empire area of CA... is that where you are going? Other than that... just google the cities you are going to be in and see what you can find.

    But LV is fun...well, kind of. It's glory days in the 70's/80's are gone and that was when I first started going and it was so much fun! THe lights on the strip at night were the most amazing display you could ever imagen. Now.. the strip looks more like downtown Los Angeles with all the high rises and NO LIGHTS!!!! No Huge lighted marquees of the stars and performers. And no more $1.99 breakfast of steak and eggs and no more $1 hotdogs and cocktails and things like that! I miss it so! But for a first timer...it will be all you know so enjoy it. Hoover Dam is cool...right outside town and that new bridge they just completed about 3 years ago.. I wanted to drive across it and it was AMAZING...how they ever did that and made it "stay up there" and all ain the side of a mountain and the way to get there is almost a mini freeway in itself! Pretty cool. And you can walk across the bridge..the bridge crosses the Colorado River... just past the dam. VERY cool. They built it to aleviate traffic across the actual dam...you can stilll drive across but it is more for visitors than actual traffic...that is what the bridge is for now. Now you might give Boulder City a google for quilt shops... they might have something. It is a small town just outside LV to... historical and all. That is where everyone lived w hile building the dam in the I believe it was about the 1940's. And check "downtown" Fremont Street. That is the ORIGINAL "las vegas". Then with the Rat Pak and Hollywood came to town, all that created "the strip" in the 50's/60's which is Las Vegas Blvd...where the lights were as amazing as "downtown"...just more of them. Then in the 80's, they started adding to the strip with the resorts style casino/hotels of which are still there...Treasure Island, MGM, Excaliber, Luxor etc. And in recent 2 decades they have demolished most of those casinos from the past.. they just dumped Frontier.. one of the last ones... Circus Circus and Flamingo are the last of the "oldies". Then Trump and Wynn came to town and they have (in my opinion) ruined what Las VEgas is all about. It looks like downtown LA.. high rises, no lights, glass/mirrored covered buildings they call casinos/hotels... and they are so outrageously expensive ($300 a night minimum!) that the town is nearly going bankrupt as people just don't have the money to pay that these days. Got a little carried away there. I have fond memories of the city... lived there for a year while back. IT was a good time in a good place. Now.. I can go several times a year if I want/can afford to. I joined a slot club (free)while there, and for out of towners...every two months I get 2 free nights and $10 food credit at this one hotel.. very nice.. .off the strip. So I go and enjoy my time. Lot of shops to wander around... Ceasers Place has some great ones nad most of them have a strip of shops in them.. most of the shops are out of my price range, but fun to look at and just to "people watch".. it is fun. Last time we went to the Mob Museum... very interesting. Check web sites for some free or reduce admission tickets. Atomic Museum is there.. pretty cool about the history of the A bomb as that area was the major testing grounds. Didn't mean to get carried away...I just enjoy the town in my own way and know how to play the town on a budget! Have a fun time whatever you decide to do! Oh yeah... you were asking about quilts! I get distracted sometimes.. but just having spent 3 days there last week... just on my mind!

    Oh wait... Julian California...between LA and San Diego... that is where Eleanor Burns lives... of QUilt in a Day. I love that little town. I didn't know at the time that she lived there as I wasn't quilting at the times I always went (day after thanksgiving every year!) But it is a wonderful ittle town and lot of antique style shops and I think she has a quilt shop there as she lives there. Might check into that if you are in that area. In the mountains, apple orchards, antique shops, handmade shops and an old silver mine! What more could you ask for !

    Also you can check these sites: The new Quilt Shop Locator app is here and FREE!
    Quilt Search Engine
    How to Hop | virtual shop hop | fabric shops | quilt shops | FabShop Hop

    I have books that list quilt shops in all of the US that I take with me when traveling (my Li'l Sis currently has them though).
    Sometimes, when there's a raging fire,
    it's best not to try to put it out with gasoline.

    Bolder City just south of LV has a very nice quilt shop (not cheap) and other thrift and antique shops all within walking distance of each others.

    There is a quilt shop a couple of hours away in St. George Utah called Scrap apple quilts. I love that place and was there just last week. St. George Utah Quilting Store

    If you want a fun treat and you like plays, Tuacahn https://www.tuacahn.org/Online/default.asp is right there and fabulous. People come from Las Vegas to see these family friendly plays. In fact last week at one of the plays we sat next to a lady from Las Vegas and said she never misses them and always brings guests there when they come into town. I used to own a home there (St George Utah) and one of our sons had a business in Las Vegas. So between us we might be able to answer any questions you might have. Have a great time.

    There are two nice shops here in Vegas, The Christmas Goose and The Fabric Boutique. Both are in reasonable proximity to each other, but quite a way from the Strip. Not a problem if you have a car. I have not been to the store in Boulder City, but if you were driving to Hoover Dam you go right through town and it would not be out of your way. Hope you have fun!
    Quilts may come, and quilts may go, but the stitches stay the same.

    Thank you everyone! I think we're going to spend one day going to the Las Vegas area shops and another going to St. George. Are there any other "can't miss" shops within a few hours driving distance? We're thinking of heading down towards Lake Havasu City one day as well.

    The Quilted Works Quilted Works | Your one-stop quilt shop is in down town St. George. I really like Scrap Apple Quilts that I mentioned before. It is the first exit as you come into St George from Las Vegas. A friend of mine mentioned another quilt shop there that was good that I hadn't been to. I'll find out and let you know.

    Oh Thursdays here in Henderson there is a Farmers Market from 9-2 and you can walk by the Heart memorials(picture)... The cafes have 50 am breakfast for 1.98 or something and you can do the turn around Lake Las Vegas threw Boulder City. Afterwards your back where you started near the Downtown Sowing Company. Then you can and hit the market at 90 that's the opening time. There are tours at the Dam and at the Lakes Tourist Center. I dont recommend going down to the docks unless they have paved it recently. But You might like it lots if you have good company its kind of an acquired taste, I like everything so you may want to pick and choose what you do There is the Station Casino and earlier in the week they have cheap rooms and the mall is right across the way there if you come in fall there's a pumpkin patch and stuff.Click image for larger version.
