NEW NEW NEW


Wow, what a week for new stuff. I have found some new sites that are awsome, went to a new Needlepoint store and learned some new skills.

The needlepoint store is under new ownership. It is called The Needled Canvas in Marietta Ga.

It is under new ownership and Gail, the owner has gone out of her way to make it the friendliest and most helpful needlework shop I have ever been to.


It was here that Colleen took an entire Saturday to teach me the basics of needlepoint. I can cross stitch and have done some crewel and surface embroidery, but have never needlepointed. LOTS to learn. Colleen is a great teacher and will be doing basic needlepoint classes in August.


If you live in the area you NEED to come to this shop.

New Sites:
