Stash Enhancing

Jane wants to know what Needlepoint shop I visited in Atlanta. We made a trip to In Stitches. The shop is owned by Bam Coleman, a former native to my area in the mountains of NC. I did not realize that when I walked into the shop but I was warmly greeted by one of her associates who offered her assistance and provided a thread conversion chart for some fiber I was looking for. I also told her I wanted to browse a bit. I was pleased to see all the fibers on display as well as room after room of wonderful canvas. The wall of Splendor was gorgeous as were all the other threads I found throughout the shop! Liz of Tapestry Tent had a trunk show and I managed to find the above stocking cuff that I could not live without and a couple of packages of Renaissance Designs angel hair. I had a very nice conversation with Bam as well and have signed up for her newsletters for possible future classes. There were lots of great stitched samples along with a great sale rack. I hope you get a chance to stop by.

Beautiful! Tapestry Tent does wonderful angels and I know that you will make something great from this, Pat. The colors are fabulous and I love the profile design. I'm glad you had a lovely trip. The angel hair thread is new to me, too.

Can you go back soon and do more pictures?

Jane, always one for the eye candy in CH

Hi Pat,

Oh my, Tapestry Tent!!!

Did you know that the trunk show would be there when you scheduled your visit?

Melissa Shirley Designs is coming to my LNS this month (July) and I know I'm going to get into trouble. But I'll have a lot of fun stimulating the local economy! :-)
