We are a knitting shop as well as a needlepoint shop. We also have supplies for tatting, crochet, bobbin lace, weaving, spinning, felting and other needlework.”
shepards bush: ” needlework haven located in Ogden, Utah, nestled between the shores of the Great Salt Lake and the beautiful snow-capped Wasatch range of the Rocky Mountains. Tina Richards Herman and her sister, Teri Richards, opened their unique retain shop in 1984. This establishment–a needle and folk art store–was named for a district in London and is housed in a renovated 19th century blacksmith and carriage shop in the heart of Ogden’s historic district. From the wildflowers and cranberries hanging from the heavy timber ceiling rafters, to the samplers and quilts adorning the worn brick walls–from shelves stacked with fine linens and homespun cottons, to the antique hutches brimming with hand-woven and dyed splint baskets, this store evokes a memory and nostalgia of a gentle life long past. ”
