I was overjoyed to find that there was one within 10 miles of where we are staying. I can't imagine why I never did this before as this is my 3rd time staying where we are. I think this is the first non-online shop I have been in in the past 2 years which is a sad testament to how many of our LNSs have closed.
But maybe the third time is the charm because I spent 2 hours poking through a dusty room digging out some great stash. I went to Town-Ho Needleworks in Brewster if you're ever going to be on the Cape. While I think it is primarily a needlepoint shop, they had a very decent selection of charts and an amazing variety of threads thanks to the needlepoint focus!
Here are some photos of what I came away with:
I just couldn't resist this Cricket Collection when I saw it in person. It's amazing how much more you buy when you can actually see the chart design! LOL Or at least that's how it works for me.....
I bought three Halloween Prairie Schooler's All Hallow's Eve, Cats, Bats & Witches and Sweeping Cobwebs as well as a fat quarter of 32ct Lambswool and the DMC to start them in case I didn't bring enough projects with me (which I did of course)!
Prairie Schooler Reindeer Round Up, BBD My Gift to You and a Cricket Collection I had never seen titled A Walk in the Woods. It's #53 and was published in 1988 so I'm wondering if it's OOP and that's why I had never see it. It's such a pretty pattern.
Knotted Tree Red Bird Fraktur and the Crescent Colors floss needed to stitch it.
