The Silver Needle Tour – Part 1

Last week I was in Tulsa, teaching with my sweet friend Linda from Chessie and Me at the Silver Needle Summer Stitching Event, and what a fabulous time we had! Lindy and her team did a wonderful job, and I was really overwhelmed with how welcoming every single person was. What a huge group of attendees! And we all had fun chatting, stitching, eating, laughing – all the good stuff!

Just around the corner from where we were gathered was the Silver Needle shop itself, and I thought I'd give you a little look-see, in case you've never been! (And if you're ever passing through the Tulsa area, you have just got to stop in and visit!) I took a lot of photographs last week, so I'll need to break up the blogging into a few different posts. 

If you see something you like, give Lindy a call, and she'll be happy to help you out!































I'll stop here for now, but I hope you enjoyed the first part of your mini tour! I'll try to get back here soon with the rest of the shop pictures and a few from the actual retreat itself. And by the way, Sabrina drove up from Dallas and arrived during the last half hour of the fun – just in time to help tear down and clean up! But afterwards, she and I spent the next couple of days doing a few things around Tulsa, and then driving up to the Pioneer Woman's Mercantile. And let me tell you.. I was in caffeine heaven!

Until next time!

    If I see something I like? I like it all! I have always envied stitchers in the US having these amazing shops available – but honestly – if I lived within touching distance of this place I would be a pauper in a few short weeks! Irene xx

    I was at the event with several of my Kansas friends and loved meeting you and Linda. It has been on my bucket list for a long time. You had such wonderful projects for us!
    The shop was wonderful, such a variety of designers, fabrics and displays. Everyone was so helpful and kind.
    Hope you can make it to one of our Heart’s Desire camps sometime.
    We would LOVE to have you!

    A few years ago on our drive from Phoenix to Manhattan, KS we detoured to Tulsa and my DIL met me at The Silver Needle. It is an awesome shop, but I have to admit I was overwhelmed! I keep telling her we need to make the detour again; there is so much to see there, it’s awesome!

    I so enjoyed your pictures from the Silver Needle, Paulette. What a wonderful crosstitch design with the words from the first verse of the old hymn “Jesus paid it All”.
    The year was around 1865. The words came to the writer while she was in the choir loft during a long pastoral prayer. Soon she began to think of her need for salvation and the lyrics began to flow. Afterword, she shared them with the pastor who loved them. The lyrics went so well with a tune organist John Grape had recently written the pastor united the two.
    I’m so glad you got some time to spend with Sabrina and The Mercantile. Did you’re caffeine include cinnamon rolls? For me that is Heaven. 😊
