The Whale’s Tail Quilt Shop in Ketchikan is an easy walk from the cruise ships dock by the downtown area. I visited the store when I was teaching on a quilting cruise to Alaska. It is located in the Salmon Landing building which is a little mini-mall with several stores. The shop is upstairs in a gallery area and they have an inviting display of several quilts hanging around the edges of the walkway and in the stairwell. Here’s a pictorial tour.
The store is well lit and easy to navigate.
They have a wide selection of patterns, many of which are Alaskan themed.
Then there are the Alaskan themed fabrics with all the wildlife.
Make a point of stopping by there if you are in Ketchikan.
