Hi, there! It seems the groundhog didn’t do us any favors with its prognostication yesterday (at least, not for those of us who are ready for warmer weather). But, at least, we have a few more weeks of not needing an excuse to simply veg out in front of the T.V. on Sunday afternoons and stitch.

Store Spotlight: Grandma’s Attic
While The Seven-Year Stitch may be the only shop of its kind in Tallulah Falls, it isn’t the only embroidery specialty shop in Oregon. Grandma’s Attic in Dallas, Oregon is a charming shop I think you’d enjoy visiting. The shop even won the Dallas Chamber of Commerce Small Business Award in 2001 (something for The Seven-Year Stitch to aspire to).
Grandma’s Attic was founded by Rachel Greco; and in addition to having a physical location, the store has an online shop to meet the needs of stitchers who live outside of Oregon. (Does anyone else want to sit in that chair, cuddle up in the quilt and chat with Grandma?)
According to their site, Grandma’s Attic has one of the largest collections of reproduction fabrics on the web. The store has large redwork and embroidery selections. The online site also features an “Ask Grandma” section and a recipes section that boasts Mamie’s Million Dollar Fudge.
