This is a “find your way” book when you don't have a GPS (Global Positioning Satellites) to guide you. The book is laid out in an easy to follow format.

The whole purpose is to take your QTC (Quilters' Travel Companion) book whenever you travel even if it’s only a few miles from home or all the way to California, upstate New York, to the far tip of Florida or the Bahamas and all the way to Canada. They got you covered!

Every State in the United States has their own unique section with a map that provides more than enough quilt shops for you to visit as you travel across this vast country of ours.

They try hard to keep you current for all the shakers and movers.

They do this by offering a newsletter that you can subscribe to…they call this their “Up-To-Date Club” where they let you know about newbie’s, drop outs, shakers and movers.

As you might imagine, in the quilting world nothing ever stays the same…it’s a fast moving bunch of women that enjoy every moment of their hobby.

If you still need to talk with someone, they provide you a telephone number for answers to all your questions. And if that is not enough, they also provide you with a telephone number and e-mail address.


  • The book is laid out alphabetically by state
  • It is a unique quilt shop directory
  • Printed every other year
  • More than 600 pages in the book
  • Over 2,000 featured quilting stores with ads, phone numbers and addresses
  • Over 1,000 quilt show listings
  • More than 1,000 shop addresses and phone numbers
  • Up-to-date information found on their web site or sign up for their Email Newsletters


  • The book is printed every other year
  • In order to "know before you go" you must visit their web site to get the latest information to supplement your book.

The Verdict:

  • The Quilters Travel Companion is a good listing for quilt shops, shows, retreat facilities and quilt guilds in North America.

I bought the pattern from you for the Alec's Civil War quilt and it is coming along great. But I have 1 question, did you quilt through the screen printed soldier pictures or just quilted around them. Thank You,

I saw on the yahoo group that you are going to post the pattern.  Thanks!!!  I really like your patterns.  I have already printed out a couple of them.
