I am a lifelong resident of Wisconsin. I live in La Crosse and there a several wonderful quilt shops that are nearby. A Stitch In Time is in Onalaska, Quilt Corner in Sparta is just 25 miles, Yellow Bird Shop in Lansing IA is just 30 miles. All three are top quality shops. I would also recommend the two shops in the Wisconsin Dells area, Quensisential Quilts in Reedsburg and Baraboo. Being that I live near the Minnesota border, there are several shops I visit as well. I am fortunate to have so many nice shops that are nearby.
