Quilting Stores in Courtenay/Comox

Doug and I are currently visiting in the Courtenay/Comox area so one of the first things to do is hunt out the local quilt stores.

Huckleberry's on Ryan Rd. was my favourite.  Great little shop with lots of selection and many new books that I was drooling over.

The Red Barn is located on Cliffe inside the Fabricland.  Lots of selection of fabric, but not quite the Quilt Store feel.  Fine for a visit, but I could live at the Huckleberry store.

While in the area we are exploring the beautiful countryside.  Today we road our road bikes around Comox, stopping for a photo op at Goose Spit.  Yesterday was a mountain bike ride at Nymph Falls on a novice trail.  A little more trail than I like, but fun none the less.  The day before we hiked in Strathcona.  A SHORT 16 km hike up a mountain.  LOL.  A Fabulous part of BC to explore.  Tomorrow we are off to Campbell River.  I here there's a quilt store on the way.


  1. That shop looks very nice. Did you take an empty suitcase?

  2. Looks like a great place, have a fabulous time.....

  3. Shopping and hiking a good combo. Did you find any treasures?

  4. My sister lives in Courtenay, so I have been to both of these shops when vacationing in the area. I loved Huckleberry's too, nice friendly staff there as well.
