I am going to be in St. Thomas on April 9th. I am a quilter and am wondering if there are any quilt or fabric stores on the island. Your help is greatly appreciated. Diana

Dana,
There are several very nice fabric shops here. They don't have the stateside variety in heavy fabrics but have tropical weights, perfect for quilting, in numerous styles. Let me know before you get here and I will send you a list of them with directions ...

Well, I am successfully avoiding work this afternoon so here we go ... St. John: the place in Mongoose is The Fabric Mill . They have a great selection of tropical weight cottons with tropical prints. Seem a bit pricy to me for clothing but in small amounts of color and print for quilts would not probably break the bank.

St. Thomas - Fabric in Motion - sort of like the old time fabirc stores before places like Cloth World sprang up. Good selection of cotton, linen and tropical weight wools. Special "party" fabrics. I don't go into sticker shock here. Downtown.
The Fabric Store - similar to above. Downtown
Lone Eagle in Smith Bay is where I buy most of my stuff. It's down near Coki Point. Again - no sticker shock here.

Don't know a thing about St. croix, sorry.

Does anyone know of any place that sells beads in St. Thomas or St. Marten? I will be there the last of February.

On St Thomas in the Royal Dane Mall is a store called "Laska" and they have a large selection of beads. They also give beading classes at the Reef should you be interested. Ask for Stacy.
Good luck.
