A trip to the Wool Shop!

Still winding down from last weeks home show!  Everything went real well and I was more than pleased with the turnout!  I took a couple of days off to do some much needed shopping and was more than pleased to meet up with Michele and Kathy at the wool shop, located at 240 Grant Street in Chambersburg, PA, to return their few items that did not sell.  Kathy works at this shop and every Thursday they have a hook-in where everyone is welcome and you can bring along anything you would like to work on!  They are open 10am to 10pm!  Just take a look at this inspiring place! As you enter the room there is a hospitality table with a beautiful rug hanging above it! Not sure who hooked it but it sure is a beauty! 
A wonderful Sheep rug hangs over a cute antique cupboard and lots of other goodies! Look at the wool nestled in there! 

You will find walls and walls of hand dyed wools in so many beautiful colors! 
A cute hooked mat that Kathy designed and I think she said she does sell the pattern! 

More wool and to the right.... a wall of needle punch patterns! I had to bring one of those home!

Here is Michele busy working on a new needle punch design! Two crows and a flower!  I'm sure she has it almost done by now! LOL  Right Michele!

This is Kathy working on her saltbox house rug!  Follow her blog to watch how quick she will finish this huge rug!  It is going to be soooooooooo pretty! 

This is Joann finishing off the edges of all these mats and chair pads!  Look how fast her hands are moving! LOL!!!   Love love love the primitive look of her work!  I need to find out if Joann has a blog! is my chair pad that I finally got started! Now to keep working on it!  I do have some orders to finish up before that happens but at least it is started!  


  1. You are so lucky to get to Grant Street. I've been following along with all these talented women and it seems like the best place!

  2. what you've gone and done? I'm drooling...all that wool...all that wonderful, wonderful, wool...and punch needle...and that must mean Valdani floss lurking somewhere...! Lucky I know you were a hooker too??? Maybe it's just that it's been so long that I've pulled a loop I can't remember anymore! Have a wonderful weekend Teresa! Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin

  3. So glad to see you and Michele at the shop on Thursday. I bet Michele is almost done with her punch needle :). Hope you both make it back real soon! Oh, and Joanne does have a blog. if the link doesn't work, she's on my sidebar. Hope you are able to relax for a bit after your show.
