We're Open!

The new store is unpacked and ready for primetime viewing. It really is a very cool space that I think you are going to enjoy. All the stuff that made the old store so me is still here along with lots of fun new things to explore. The walls are still my funky shade of lime green that just makes everything happy. Some of the floors have tiger carpet. (More to come later) All in all a very good move.

The move was especially good thanks to the help of a group of very dear friends who kicked in and went well beyond the call of duty to get us unpacked and prettied up in just 48 hours!!! You girls rock!

I've attached lots of pics and will add more in the next few days. Our big (and I do mean big) sign is being installed on Thursday. That will make it super easy for you to find us.

Let's go for a tour of the front room.....



Our pretty armoire is the first thing to welcome you as you enter. Currently it is all decked out for Halloween.



The chandelier made the move safe and sound. Every needlepoint store needs its icon.


The wall to the right of the front counter will feature our current and upcoming clubs and classes. In other words, this is where the action is!



Models, gifts and treasures are here to tempt you.



One of our big canvas walls is currently all Christmas. You know I love Christmas!



What? A doorway? A hall filled with DMC and Anchor threads? More areas to explore.


At the back of the front room, can you see, there's another room with more canvases!!! This will be the trunkshow room. All of our designer catalogs are here too, so this is the perfect place to hang out and plan that next great project.

There you have it. Tour du jour part one. Pictures of the exterior and the classroom and the counted canvaswork room to follow as soon as I catch my breath.

thank you all for loving the shop and what we do in it!

Wow, it's impressive how you moved so quickly and are so settled already- must have been a lot of hard work! I'm really happy about the location change- it will be more accessible for sure! I'm also happy to see all the wall space for canvases- the old shop was adorable too, but you really need the wall space to show off the canvases.
