old store

Yesterday and Today


Wow – time has flown by so quickly. I cannot believe we are coming up on the 4 year mark. When I walked into the store for the very first time I had no clue as to what I was doing. I wasn’t even sure I wanted to be there. The place was small and cramped but filled with color and tons of inspiration.  I was nervous, scared and in over my head.

Diving in head first, I never looked back. Never. It has been a complete joy, a gift that has saved me in ways. It has been my therapy. The people I meet; the staff and the group of regulars who are my family have been there for me in ways I never had even envisioned.

Two years ago when we moved into our new space, you were there for me – hanging threads, moving one store into the new space. You spent hours putting the store together even as I was rushed away with an emergency.  I came back a week later to find a store completely filled with canvases, supplies, yarn and threads. I can never say thank you enough. I am one lucky person. I truly am.

Fast forward to today – 2 years in our wonderful space that is bright and inviting. Every once in awhile you will hear me mutter that I would love more space to do more things. In time, I say, in time. Its all good.  It is pure happiness. It is pure love.  I love meeting new people, newbies to the Needlearts while still learning from all of you that come through our door.
