Recommended Online Shops

Very often I'm asked by new stitchers where to find a good online shops.   All shops listed in the link below are either my personal favorites or were nominated by many of Blog's readers. Here's the link to my Best Needlepoint Shops 2014 article.

Those who don't live in the United States but who enjoy the U.S.-style of needlepoint can have a hard time getting supplies.  With the assistance of friends who live overseas and online sources, I am starting to assemble a list of shops that are helpful to those who need things shipped to them outside the U.S.  NOTE THAT THIS LIST BELOW IS FOR SHOPS THAT SHIP OVERSEAS!  If you are a U.S. customer, check the list in the link above.

In alphabetical order, here they are:

123 Stitch
(more a counted canvaswork and cross stitch shop with lots of scrapbooking and other craft supplies but quickest shipments to Australia)
http://www.123stitch.com

Amy's Golden Strand
(Amy Bunger's shop; items came safely packed with a free stitch diagram but communication can be lacking)
http://www.amybunger.com

Fireside Stitchery
(excellent service and fast shipments to Australia)
http://www.firesidestitchery.com

London Bead Company 
(particularly useful for shipping threads and beads from England to various European countries)

Needle in a Haystack
Great shop!

Needle Case Goods
This Etsy shop used to be brick and mortar but now is online only.  Nancy Wagner the owner carries some painted canvases and needlepoint charts plus lots of Weeks Dye Works and Gentle Art Sampler threads as well as great Pieceworks Needles, scissors, linen, perforated paper and more.  Geared toward cross stitch, Nancy is always happy to help folks grab threads that more needlepoint oriented shops might not carry.
