CALLING ALL CARS

Hey, kids.  Aunt Chrissy and I are going to be in the Cleveland area next month, and we're wondering if there are any needlework shops near The Cleveland Clinic?  I hate to impose on all of our fellow Buckeyes out there, but can you help a stitcher out?

Stewed and I are lumping it today and haven't made it out of our pajamas yet.  So much for cleaning the house and getting the laundry done.  Would it be so wrong to call this a snow day and zone out in front of the TeeVee?

I am, however, determined to get upstairs today to get something vaguely stitch related in my hands.  I feel like I haven't stitched in a year and a half.  Drat.

Stay warm and safe a dry, and we'll see you on the other side!

  1. I insist that you take a snow day today, and stay in your jammies all day! That's what I'm doing. Now, to decide what to stitch....

  2. OMG!! The Country Craft Cupboard in Berlin OH - well worth the 1.5 hour drive from Cleveland. It is the most fabulous everything craft store. They have stitching downstairs and felt and wool and quilts upstairs!! Plus there is Walnut creek cheese 2641 State Route 39 Walnut Creek, OH 44687 which is 8 minutes from Berlin - lovely jelly and/or Heini's Cheese Chalet, County Highway 77, Millersburg, OH which is 10 minutes from Berlin and has cheese samples!!
    If you only want to stay in Cleveland I have two restaurants you gotta go to Luckys Cafe at 777 Starkweather Dr - yes, you SHOULD have the mac and cheese!! and/ or The Melt - tons of the BEST grilled cheese sandwiches you will EVER have - they have several locations! Both of them have been on Diners Drive in and Dives (we don't live in Ohio but we do have family there) And you should always try to go to http://www.westsidemarket.org/ this is a wonderful market - the dried strawberries are to die for!!
    I hope all is well - worried about you visiting the clinic!!

  3. I was so excited about that post - I failed to use correct punctuation. *sigh* I hadn't even read your whole post before I was putting mine together lol So, all that stuff can be looked up online as well. Country cupboard is on facebook. I am calmer now - if you need more info contact me no problem!!

  4. I work at a FABULOUS Counted Cross Stitch Shop in Strongsvi Xlle and it is less than 45 minuted from The Clinitc. Get yourself to I 71 South and exit at Route 82 west (Royalton Road) Drove about 1 mile (past the mall, the center of town - Rt 42 and to the next traffic light) turn right on Prospect Rd and we are about 1/4 mile on the right side of the street in Prospect Plaza.. If you get to the railroad tracks - turn around. The address is 13315 Prospect and the TN is 440-572-3445. Open Tue, Wed, Fri and Sat 10M-5 AND Thurs NOON TO 8. I think you will have no trouble finding something interesting!

  5. I'm not from Cleveland, but I *do* love to shop there. The comment above me (from cl?) sounds like it's in reference to Just Stitching in Strongsville, which is a very nice shop. My favorite Cleveland shop is Crafty Ewe in Broadview Heights. It's also a bit closer to the Cleveland Clinic. Maybe 25 minutes away. Her shop suits my stitching style nicely!

    About 50 miles west of Cleveland there is a sweet little shop in the town of Vermilion, called Clare's Stitching Post. Clare is a very nice and helpful person, and Vermilion is a lovely small and historic town on beautiful Lake Erie.

    All in all, Cleveland is a pretty great place to be a stitcher! Several nice shops and lots of variety!

  6. Crafty Ewe gets my vote and there is an Italian bakery next door - fabulous! The place in Strongsville is okay...and I wouldn't recommend Berlin at all. Berlin barely has any stitchy things at all.

  7. Wool & Willow is very close to the Clinic. It's a beautiful needlepoint shop. Anne is the owner.

  8. Based on all the comments I think I need to make a trip to OH! All that places mentioned sound great ... and my mouth is watering for a grilled cheese. I saw that episode of D3...yum.

  9. Crafty Ewe in Broadview Heights is a GREAT SHOP! I visit it weekly. Lots of eye candy, great fabric selection -- it's my favorite!

  12. I'm sorry you have to go to the clinic, hope all goes well with your visit. A day in your jammies sounds wonderful. It is exactly how I plan to spend Jan. 1st.

  13. Crafty Ewe is my LNS! It is only about 20 min. from Cleveland Clinic....I-77 South to the Walling Road Exit, turn right....follow down to Broadview Road,turn right and its about 3-4 buildings down on right side. Here is their website: http://www.thecraftyewe.net/

    Let me know when you will be there and I will try to go to the Ewe and meet you!

  15. If you want needlepoint, I would go to Wool and Willow. It's the only needlepoint shop I find time for when I am in the Cleveland/Akron area. I am from Cleveland but my husband's family is in the Akron area.

  16. I bet it's really good, but somehow Heini's Cheese is not an enticingly appetizing name!

  17. Didn't mean to be anonymous but not sure how to be otherwise?? Going to try. Nope, still too feeble-minded to figure it out.
