I just accompanied my honey to his 55th high school reunion back in his home state of Minnesota.  Visiting his cousins, going out with old friends and the culminating event of the reunion… I figured I was earning a few points and could throw in a little stop for myself, so I looked for a place that would peak my textile interest!  I found the perfect place at Stitchville U.S.A.

As some of you may know, I admit to one addiction… thread.  I’ve never seen such an amazing array of hand stitching threads!  The floor space of this shop is considerable… and filled not only with luscious stitch materials, but also needlepoint and cross stitch kits.  Here’s some of what you’ll find:

Not only do they have all sorts of kits and pre-printed canvas, they even have their own framing department!

My new purchases!

It’s always tough to pick out which threads to buy, but this time I have a piece in process that I was able to buy for.  I’m currently stitching an African Wild Dog, so all the lovely neutral colors will set it off beautifully.

If you want to visit Stitchville USA on your next trip to Minnesota, it’s located at:

Ridge Square South, 12945 Ridgedale Drive, Minnetonka, MN 55305

Or check out their website at http://www.stitchville.com/

Unfortunately with Covid, they aren’t holding their classes right now, but I’ll definitely check in the future when we head back to MN.  My husband has mentioned how he’d love to move back to Minnesota one day… I’ve never been tempted before, but with finding Stitchville, I may need to reconsider!
