The Inspired Needle

This last week I had the opportunity to go to Chicago with my DH. When we travel my DH always humors me and takes me to stitching shops along the way.
On the advice of Cathy B we made a trip to The Inspired Needle in Lemont, Ill.
Here is a picture of Cathy (the owner) and myself. I had such a great visit with Cathy and sure wish that I could visit her shop more often. I feel like I have made a great friend in the short time I talked with her. She has a wonderful shop and she is just so friendly. I will make it a point to stop there again next time I am in the area.


Here is a pic of my DH and me at the shop. If you get a chance check out Cathy's blog and shop website. She wrote some very nice things about my visit with her.


Thanks for stopping by and Happy Stitching.

Great story!!! I wish I would have been there when you stopped in!! Isn't Inspired Needle one of the best shops ever???

I just returned from our monthly Sunday stitch in and it was a blast!

Happy Stitching!

I love how she called you a "Stitchin' Rock Star"! How great is that?

Thanks for mentioning her shop. I get to Chicago now and then (I'm even headed there next week), so maybe I'll drop in at the Inspired Needle. Thanks for the idea!!

Glad you had a good trip. It looks like a fantastic shop and I wish I could visit but it's a bit too far for me!
