Ogden, Utah

I was on my way to Salt Lake City, Utah a while back to visit my daughter and had some time to kill, so I decided to stop off in Ogden to check out the LYS there. The Needlepoint Joint, located on historic 25th Street, is a store I’ve shopped at before, but it was an in-and-out visit to the store (never a good idea), and it had been on my mind ever since.

If you haven’t been to Historic 25th Street in Ogden lately, you are in for a treat.

They’ve restored the store fronts and blocked off the street so there’s lots of room to walk around and enjoy the booths and street artists.

The Needlepoint Joint is easy to find.  Just follow the yarn bomb markers until you arrive! This is a beautiful store. Lovely interior, lots of gorgeous samples and lots of yummy yarn as well as needlepoint and embroidery threads and supplies. On my second trip here, I was able to spend a lot more time.

The staff was great (and patient) helping me make my decision; Manos del Uruguay’s Silk Blend which is 70% merino wool and 30% silk.

I only bought one skein, but was able to make the most of it (I literally had 2 yards left). Here is the final product, Autumn in Peachtree Cowl, designed for my sister who lives in Peachtree City, Georgia.
