Angel Wing – Southport, NC

Hubby and I recently spent a week in Southport, NC.  What a marvelous coastal town.  Unfortunately, they did get some damage from Hurricane Florence, but just about everything was up and running. Lots of new roofs were being put on!

Our last full day hubby and I went our separate ways. I took a leisurely stroll up and down the main street of the city: Howe Street. Lots of shops of all kinds. Lo and behold – I came upon this shop filled with everything I love (except food!)

I was a bit skeptical before entering – how could this shop do all these crafts well? Will it be neat, tidy and well organized or a big mish mash of crafts?  It is a totally excellent, well organized and beautiful shop.

There were so many choices for needlepoint, cross stitch and embroidery threads. There were also weaving supplies. Some I had never seen before.

And the knitting – oh the knitting! A huge selection of all kinds of yarns, patterns and completed examples. And yes, I crumbled. I bought this beautiful chenille yarn to make a small blanket (hopefully with a little help from a friend or two!) See the light green and white piece draped on the chair? That’s the one!

The quilting section – although not huge, I loved every single bolt of fabric there. Everything was bright and up to date. Be strong girl – just buy the yarn! There was also a nice selection of notions.

The owner,  Donna, was camera shy. She does, however, invite you to come in person to meet her and enjoy this amazing and wonderful shop!
