The post from Cheryl E was from 1995...I doubt her list is still accurate. However we can make a new list on this thread!

I'm Violet and live in Rochester, MN. I started my own stitchy forum in hopes to meet other stitchers in my area, but there has been no interest. This is likely because there's no needlework shop withing 150 miles of here (boo hoo). If anyone ever wants to get together and stitch with me you can contact me on this forum, or go to the one I created. https://groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/semns

There's always Stitchville in Minnetonka--a mere 90 mikes away! :-)

*That's* the name of it!!! I was trying to think of it when reading
Violet's message.

Thanks, Jinx!

If worries can cure your sickness, prolong your life, or replace
happiness, then go ahead and worry! If they can't, why worry?

Enjoy every moment of your life...there is no second chance.

I just learned about Stitchville, USA in Minnetonka...someone on flosstube filmed a video there. It looks like and awesome shopo!

Unfortunately driving to Minnetonka can take up to a 3 hours from here when the horrible traffic of Minneapolis is figured in. It's not a drive I can make with my particular disability. Possibly though, my husband might be convinced to take me there for my birthday in May.

I haven't been there in awhile--I may have to put it in my agenda. When I
was in Florida on vacation I stopped at my LNS there and my daughter picked
out a pretty beaded mermaid pattern. The shop did not have all the seed
beads I needed, so I guess I have an excuse to go!

I would say plan to arrive not before 11 am, and leave no later than 2pm.
You should be safe in between! I think I mentioned Stitchville here a
couple weeks ago--I'm in Burnsville.

I guess expected Stitchville to be a small LNS and didn't realize how huge it was until I saw that video a couple days ago. My goodness, I nearly had heart palpitations seeing so much stitchy stuff in one spot! All those beautiful fabrics to touch and feel, the patterns, and the threads...it's my version of HEAVEN!!

We can only go up there on Saturdays as my husband works during the week, and the drive from Rochester to Mpls on weekends is excruciating no matter how you time it. It's been much worse in the last 5 years than it's ever been before...seriously, Hwy 52 is like 494 at rush hour the entire way. At one point there were discussions about putting in a high speed rail between our cities, but I believe there were cash flow problems on Rochester's end. Too bad, but perhaps the idea will resurrect at some point.

I know the route all too well! My parents and extended family are all in
and around Rochester still, so I'm driving 52 all the time. I always
thought the rail was a great idea so I hope it happens someday.
Stitchville moved locations some years ago. I'm not too fond of their new
location because it's in a busier part of the Cities and a little more
complicated to get to. It's definitely worth the trip though. Their
website is www.stitchville.com.

I'm so jealous. Even to be a few hours away. Nothing left here in
SW PA. Not that my stash needs any enhancing.
