Nova Scotia Quilt Shops and Fabric Stores

Bad weather or holidays or even a great sale can effect a quilt shop's business hours.

Always call ahead to double check a shop's hours for the day of your visit. Gas is too expensive and your time too valuable to make a trip only to find that the store is closed for the day.
