The Bristly Thistle, a new needlepoint shop, has opened on Fourth Street. Fans of the old Classy Needle will be thrilled about this. Many of our guests are stitchers and were regular customers of the Classy Needle and were quited saddened when it closed. I haven't been able to see what the hours are on the shop but I know that they have a "Sip 'n Knit" at Indigo Alley on Wednesday evenings from 6-8. Hmmm... I might have a bit of trouble later in the evening but many of these stitchers are darn near pro, plus they might not sip as much as me.
