Needlework Shops in Tulsa

I arrived in Tulsa, safe and sound after a very long drive.  First things first, I needed to hit the needlework shops!  I didn't really "need" anything, but need has nothing to do with it. 

The first shop on the list was the Silver Needle.  I had been there before, and this visit was not different.  I wanted a laying tool.  I was greeted by Lindy, the owner as I walked in the door, who asked how she could help me.  I told her I was looking for a laying tool, to which she responded:  Cross stitchers don't use laying tools.  I assured her that I did use one depending on the project.  She did manage to show me a few in a case.  I chose one, wandered around the shop for awhile, then paid for my purchase and left. 

The next stop was Stitchworks, across the street.  I had also been there before.  No change in that shop either.  I did find a few things while I was there.

The third shop I visited was Stitches, which is a needlepoint and yarn shop.  I had been there before, and I was saddened to see that the shop was only half the size it was since my last visit. 

 I did manage to make a purchase or two in each shop.

I live about 3 hours from there and have heard it is a great store! Maybe someday I can meet a group of stitchers there for stash shopping!
