Visiting Stitchville USA (in Minnetonka, Minnesota) has been on my dream list for quite some time. I had heard so many marvelous things about the shop. I was able to visit the shop on Friday morning since my class didn't begin until that afternoon. I quickly discovered that some of the Spring Fling-ers had the same idea.
The shop is enormous! Over 4200 square feet with over 1200 models! (Yes, you read those numbers correctly!)
Here are some glimpses inside the shop.
Those are beautiful wools on the bookcase.
...and the fibers, oh my! I don't think I've ever seen such a vast array!
...and there were even more fibers....I just couldn't photograph them all.
Here are some more models and "goodies".
...and look at the beautiful linens!
And if that wasn't enough, look at all the incredible goodies in this display case!
Here are close-ups of some of the things inside the display case.
Stitchville USA was originally started by Deb's aunt. When her aunt became ill, Deb decided to buy the shop. That was back in 1988, and the shop was only 800 square feet. Today it's five times the size of the original shop. I bet Deb's aunt would be thrilled to see what she has done with the shop to make it one of the premier needlework shops.
