Fieldtrip!

Standard

Hi, Everyone —

Sue and I decided to extend our Seminar experience a little bit more by making the trek to Ridgewood Needlepoint’s new digs in Wyckoff, NJ.  This new location is decidedly closer to us and has the advantage of convenient free parking and lovely natural light.

The view from the door!

Once inside, the store still carries an array of beautiful threads and painted canvasses.  I took my Lombard Street canvas and was looking for threads to implement a different idea for the bricked street — how amazing that this was the day that Eileen Aird, the prior owner and the creator of my wonderful Lombard stitch guide, was visiting in the shop from Tucson!

The Happy Shoppers!

After a couple of hours in the shop, we took their recommendation and had lunch at Cafe Amici — a few blocks away and a waiting line for lunch!  Delicious!

Of course, we had to stop at Mrs. Stitches when we got back to Mendham!

Cheers to all — hope to see you at next week’s meeting.  Sue and I are both making steady progress on our Seminar pieces — are you??

  1. Sounds like a fun day – and a great day to wind down from Seminar. Hope to see you at the September meeting so that I can drool over everyone’s class projects. Someone had the nerve to schedule a meeting for me in Hackensack starting at 4:30 but I’m thinking of packing a picnic supper so that I can just head to Basking Ridge directly when the meeting ends.
