Question Needlepoint Supplies

The store I used to buy needlepoint supplies (in the shopping center with the Chop House Restaurant) closed a couple of years ago and I'm tired of trying to get stuff over the internet. Anybody have any sources closer than Nashville or Chattanooga?

There was a place called DoubleCross. It used to be on that stretch of Papermill that runs from Kingston Pike to Northshore but I think they got lost in the construction. Google turned up a new address for them farther down on Papermill.
4028 Papermill Dr Ste 9
Knoxville, TN 37909
865-909-0613

I used to do cross stitch and was thinking about starting up with it again but never got farther than noting the name of the shop as I drove by.

I cannot live without my needle and fabric/yarn suppliers!

Nancy,

Call The Knitting Nest in downtown Maryville. They may know of needlepoint supply stores. There is a FABULOUS needlepoint supply store in Kingsport called The Carriage House. http://www.timesnews.net/article.php?id=9007092 They carry needlepoint, cross stitch and knitting supplies as well as framing and gift shop.

Ah, fellow x-stitchers here! Here is a link to a cross stitch thread on this site. I have posted several pictures of my finished and framed cross stitch pieces there. I have so many more that are completed, rolled up, and tucked away in a drawer. I haven't stitched in years however. I still have scads of supplies, books, floss, etc. I joke that I now may just frame my books!
Any Cross Stitchers Here?

SMG

Default Needlepoint supplies

Thanks guys - sorry I didn't get back earlier, but my computer DIED . The repairman said he thought it was the jack for the plug, but until I get it fixed (if possible), I have to use somebody else's computer.

Now I really need to needlepoint to relax, LOL

Dixie Darlin in Pigeon Forge, some of the nicest people work there. They have a website, but I always enjoy trailing thru the shop. 865 453 3104 They will mail you anything you're in dire of need right now. I lived in Knoxville and it never took more than a day or so.

Thanks for the recommendation. I checked out their website and it seems they carry a few hard to get things I've been interested in getting. It may be worth a trip to pigeon Forge to see the store.
