Where are all the needleshop stores…

19 Mar

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. 😀
