It was such a beautiful day that went on a road trip today to Lititz, PA. We were on a mission to get garlic butter from Stauffers of Kissel Hill (Bill got a tip from someone at the Reading Terminal Market that their’s is the best). We should not have waited until 2 pm to pick up a tomato pie from The Tomato Pie Cafe (thanks to Christine for the referral) because they were sold out. Next time. Lititz is the home of Wilber Chocolates and we got their Buds! And, I was able to finally visit Needlepoint For Fun. They’ve been open a little over a year now and I hadn’t gotten there.

Trish was a gracious host showing me around the one room second floor store. What they have is lovely and displayed very well. The canvases adorn the walls and pre-packaged kits (intended for basketweave) are scattered throughout the store begging to be taken home. If I didn’t have so many projects now, I certainly could have found a piece. There aren’t many choices for threads but they kit in their wholesale NJ location which must have more stock.

They have several pieces showing decorative stitches (to encourage people) and Pat provides the stitch guides upon request. Very nice work.

Trish is also the finisher who does lovely work on pillows and ornaments. Her husband is an excellent stitcher and does the blocking. They had a unique display of Zip n Stitch pre-finished round ornaments (Christmas and Halloween designs) and small stockings. No matter what store I go to, I almost always find something that I have never seen before.

Bill picked the Nutcracker Soldier round ornament to go with our small nutcracker collection. Look at the lovely pillows near the window. I love the blue dragonfly pillow.
