Stitchville USA

Hello Minnesota!
  How is your week going? It is cold here but at least there is no blizzard approaching. I feel sorry for my friends in the Northeast. I hope that everyone is home safe and spending some time stitching.
  
This is something that you don't see in the Carolinas. Ice fishing! It is a big deal here. In my travels to St. Cloud I also saw a pair of wolves out in a field. You never know what you are going to see do you?
   So my flight got in before lunch so I spent my lunch break here..
Wow! Wow! Wow! This store needs to be on every stiitcher's bucket list.
Look at the fabric!
Where to start? Look at all those models!
This store is a full service needlepoint store with all the fibers that you might ever want and fully stocked. If you need 3 skeins of one color of WDW or GAST threads they have it.
   I was also very impressed with the availability of some older designs. Many stores do not stock older designs and order low quantities so that they can turn their inventory. If you are looking for an older design this is the place to call..
This is what came home with me. I love the Bent Creek Zipper kits and I love 
snowmen. These are great travel pieces.

Well time to go to work.
Happy Friday my Friends!

Chris

Chris: This is my favorite store, I can order just about anything and they will try to get it.
I have been shopping with Stitchville since many many years ago.
Debs aunt used to have this shop in a very small space almost the size of a small kitchen room.
They even had pictures hanging from the cieling.
Deb has done a wonderful job when she inherited this lovely business.

I visited Stitchville in the 1990s and bought SO much. I need to go back. It is an amazing place.

Congrats on scoring the older Bent Creek Zipper kit.
Can't go wrong with a BC Snowman. :)

I plan to get there one day. I think I would be in there a very long time.
So cool that you saw two wolves.
Stay warm.

Wow, great shop, just look at all those pieces of fabric and models. Love the ice fishing too!

Brigitte said...

The pictures of this shop are just breathtaking. At least for me who rarely ever has the chance to enter a needlework shop. I think I could spend days in there, without coming out a single time, lol. You brought some nice new charts home. I love the Chilly Winter by By the Bay.
