While I was visiting my family in Florida, I found a wonderful stash shop right in town and came home with a few things. I went in for more WDW Onyx for my BOAF piece but of course came out with more than just the thread! I got two skeins of the WDW Onyx, the frame for a wonderful SamSarah Stitch Every Day chart that I will show you later, two JBW Designs charts, Holiday Ornamentals and Christmas Motif Sampler, another SamSarah chart, Light the Way, that I've been admiring for a while as well as some fabric and the WDW Clam Shell that I didn't already have. This is a great little shop in Venice if you are visiting anywhere on the gulf coast from Bradenton to Ft. Myers. It's located on the island at 101 W. Venice Avenue and it's called Needlepoint Ivy. The owner and her husband were very friendly and knowledgeable and willing to ship anywhere. They also offer needlepoint canvases and supplies. I can definitely recommend this LNS to visitors and local Florida stitchers.
