Where are all the needleshop stores...

UPDATE : I have opened my own needleshop store in Ottawa. 

Visit at

Here, in Ottawa, Ontario, we used to have one wonderful cross stitch store. Now it's closed.  Then, the other one that was further east closed...  Yes, I do buy some supplies online but I really like to see the merchandise, the floss and all the new stuff from the Nashville market. I found a Needlework shop in Syracuse. (3 hours away)  We go there form time to time to shop.  Is the online world destroying our small shops?  Even Wal Mart does not carry Anchor floss anymore.

Here is the progress on my box :

I hear you about the LNS. We have very few left around here too. In fact, I called one just a couple of weeks ago only to be told that they've switched over from stitching stuff to knitting stuff and the lady was so rude! Sigh.

Loving your progress on Treasures. :D

I have a couple of stitching friends in Ottawa
Next time you are in southern ontario check out Knowldege and Needles in Brighton. She will also Mail to you.

It is always best to call first to make sure she is open if you are coming down for just that reason.

I'm in the same boat, I'm trying to find the cross stitching background fabric in colours other than cream and white and it's nearly impossible! I'm also located in Ottawa. Any suggestions? Feel free to contact me at amandadotstevadoatgmaildotcom. Thanks!

Has anyone heard from Alexandra ? I ordered some merchandise from her a month ago and have been trying to contact her to find out what is going on with my order. No reply. When I tried to get to "The Stitching Shop" site, it now says the request is bad. Any information would be helpful. Thanks, Heather
