    Is there going to be a needlework section? I dearly miss the old Stitchery House in FWB.

    Have you heard if they are going to handle fabrics by Heather Bailey, Amy Butler, etc.? You can only get those online or at A & E Pharmacy in Pensacola. That would make my day if they do!!!

    I also miss the Stitchery House...was just thinking about them yesterday...can't find good needlepoint and cross-stitch anywhere around here!

    For cross stitch supplies my two favorite online stores are:

    European Cross Stitch

    Stitching Bits and Bobs

    I love being able to get a kit for all the more exotic bits of a Chatelaine design from European XS, but I really miss getting to browse around the big racks of charts and touch the pretty fibers and fabric like you can at a bricks and mortar store.

    Where is this rumor coming from? This would be exciting indeed.

    I'd love to not have to drive to PC every time I need something...or to be able to actually SEE fabric before buying it....

    That was the owner's idea too! Not having to drive from one end of the panhandle to the other for choices!

    Target date is 4/3 - On Hwy 20 In Plaza where Freeport Pet Clinic is - at other end!

    I've also seen a sign for 'Fabric Zoo' on one of those strip malls on the north side of 98 Santa Rosa Beach-ish.

    Anyone checked them out yet?

    Ditto, and no.

    From the sign I thought it was more drapery/upholstery/inferior desecrator fabric.

    I am really trying to resist going after work.....although I can justify the trip, I need to stop at the vet's office and get cat food....
