Day 3 of the blogging challenge: What is my favorite store? Depends on what kind of store? My favorite physical store is Target. I can get a wide variety of items at reasonable prices. For books I like Amazon. Sorry brick and mortar stores, but for so long I was unable to get Borders or Barnes and Noble to order many of the series I like to read and Amazon always seemed to have them with minimal waits. It is also the only place where I can get the bags that fit our trash compactor. Amazon has my vote if it means no leaky trash!
For needlework, I make a big list and hit Stitching Bits and Bobs during a sale for cross stitch materials. If you like counted canvas I highly recommend The Scarlet Thread. About two years ago I started going to a stitching group there on Tuesday nights. It was tons of fun and I have made great friends and there was always good shopping to be had. Unfortunately, Sara Leigh had to shut the physical shop, but she and her partner Dawn resurrected the store online. They no longer carry cross stitch, but they have an amazing selection of counted canvas pieces and materials. They are awesome to work with and are happy to make suggestions or help with kitting a piece or changing out colors. I would highly recommend them for your next counted canvas purchase!
