One is The Village Sampler in Big Flats. Route 13 to Route 17, C***St.
Exit 49. It's on C***St., but I don't have the exact number. That is
about a 30-40 minute drive. Country Store in Gang MIlls (on the "main
drag" I'm told) is in the same area (607 936-8945).
There's also a fairly new store in Trumansburg, a short drive up the west
side of the lake. Willow Tree Fabrics: nice solids, not too much in the
way of notions. Interesting fabrics from Latin America, if you're
interested in something unique. It's on the main street in Trumansburg.
Grandmother's Thimble (29 Kattelville Rd. Binghamton (607 648-9009 800
646-9009) is actually in Chenango Bridge. I haven't been there since the
business was sold late last year but last time I visited it was very nice.
Great selection, helpful staff.
People swear by the Strawberry Patch Calico Shop in Columbia Crossroads, PA
(717 549-6111), although I've never been. Supposed to be the greatest.
I include phone numbers so your friend can call and get directions, hours,
and so on. Too bad she didn't come 6 months ago. We had a great little
shop in Varna that closed in January. Sure, we have Joanns but hardly the
same quality, service, and selection. [Sigh.]
