Too, my Local Needlework Shop (LNS) has encyclopedic knowledge of all things related to stitching and
knitting. Her Mardi Gras sales are phenomenal. The Saturday Group, the Thursday
Group, the classes with Tony Minieri, Doug Kreinik and Ruth Dilts, tons
of threads and gorgeous painted canvases have fostered creativity and
given a warm glow to my credit card.
The Stitch and Frame Shop
is located in Rock Hill, SC. They carry wonderful linen
and threads for counted thread embroidery and almost every cross
stitch chart known to man. There are beads and charms
galore and excellent framing services.
Barbara Suess teaches Japanese Temari,
an embroidery technique for producing geometric designs on round
balls. Terrific photos and extensive references on temari
and more are on her site.
