My sister is not the most computer literate person that I know. It’s not that she’s not smart, she’s just not very good at the computer. To give you an idea, a couple of years ago she called me to help her figure out how to get an attachment out of her email. She had absolutely no idea how to download it.

The other night she was over for dinner and her 13-year-old son was playing on her phone. He told her she needed to get some apps on her phone because she had none. He suggested the app Around me, because it would help her find gas stations quickly and easily. (She is known for running out of gas.)

She asked her son what is Around me? I explained: “do you remember when I was able to locate a restaurant when we were driving to the outlet mall in Florida last year? All I did was open Around me, the app detected our location, and offered suggestions for restaurants.”

“Oh,” she said, “that sounds great.” Then she asked. “can it do the same for fabric stores?”

Him. I don’t think so. But I think you might have come up with a brilliant idea for an app: a fabric store finder. I gotta get on that.

One thought on “An app that locates fabric stores?

  1. There is a good one, I use it on my Android tablet, but I’m pretty sure it works on iPhones too..

    It’s put out by Quilters Club of America, and it is called, surprisingly enough, “Quilt Shops”

    Opens to a big button that says “find quilt shops – start search” Last time I used it, it automagically knew exactly where I was & showed me a list of 3 -4 shops within 50 miles, but you can also enter a city, state or zip to search. And best of all, it is FREE!
