Eight Shops in Two Days !! - CHAPTER 3

Since we hoped to hit two more stores before 6:00, we rushed off to Akron and Cuyahoga Falls. I was behind the wheel, and battling rush hour traffic was no picnic, but we arrived at Blueberry Hill Stitchery just before 5:00.




This shop is unique, in that it is located in the rear of an office building. This picture is from the foyer and was very welcoming to see. Completely out of breath, we were reassured by the owner that she was taking stock/inventory and would stay open for us past 5:00.

The CEC A Summer Place, which I am currently stitching on, was on display, with all the DMC threads converted to over-dyeds. It was very striking!


I was also thrilled to find two Oberlins for my collection (I have stitched Maine, America, Cincinnati, and Spring), namely Summer and Music, as well as LK's Sunshine Sampler and the new 2007 PS Santa.

She was very apologetic about placing a phone order for fibers while we were there, but we're pretty self-sufficient and enjoyed our albeit brief visit .

At the suggestion of a 123'er, we headed off to Stitch, Piece 'n Purl in Cuyahoga Falls. We were having a blast!
