Earlier this month, I went to Nashville and Memphis with some of the girls. We had the best time. Laughing . . .eating . . drinking.
First, we stopped at Nashville Needleworks. What a fabulous shop! My friend Janice, who owns Old Town Needlework in Scottsdale had “shop size envy.” They have a huge stitching table, so many threads and canvases. I was trying to be incognito when I was there but was instantly recognized. Too funny!
We didn’t go just for that. We spent two days at Amy’s Golden Strand with the AMAZING Amy Bunger.
When I first got hooked on needlepoint, about 13 years ago, Amy Bunger was the bees knees and still is. My friends and I talked about “renting Amy” and going down to her shop for class. This has been on my bucket list for quite some time. So, after I finished radiation this Spring, I decided that life is too short and that we were heading South!
Amy’s store is like a museum in terms of the stitching. You could stare at one piece for hours! The Zero Degrees North Home Study she recently did is exquisite! Every time you look at it you notice something else.
I worked on a few different pieces over the two days and picked Amy’s brain. She is a wealth of knowledge. If you ever get the chance, grab a few friends and rent Amy for a few days. You won’t regret it! Well . . . you might regret all the fabulous food you’ll eat but that’s about it!
