Looks like Weches (population 26) is north of Houston in the Davy
Crockett National Forest. If you're flying into Bush Intercontinental
(aka Houston Intercontinental) Airport, there are really only two shops
that would be "on the way".
Three Stitches is at 7822 Louetta--take I-45 north, exit at Louetta,
turn left (west) on Louetta and go several miles. Watch street numbers
to know when you're getting close. The shop will be in a small shopping
center on your right along with Molly Malone's Pub. Stitches and More is
in Spring--go back to I-45 on Louetta, turn left (north) on the feeder
road, but don't bother to get on the freeway as you want the next exit
anyhow. Turn right on Spring Cypress Road (follow signs to "Old Town
Spring") and watch for the shop in a small shopping center on your left
just a little ways past the school.
If you're flying into Houston Hobby Airport on the south side of
Houston, you could stop in at Stitchcraft in Bellaire (a pocket city
inside of Houston). Take the I-610 loop west and north, exit at
Bellaire, turn left (west) under the freeway. Stay in the left-hand lane
and make a slight left where the road forks at a traffic light. You'll
need to be in the left turn lane, but it's only about a 45 degree turn,
not a right angle turn. The shop will be on your right about half a
block down from there in the Bellaire Triangle shopping center.
The three shops above are all closed on Sundays and Mondays, and I'm
pretty sure are open 10-5 other days.
Harbour Stitchery in League City is also a nice shop, but would be a bit
more out of your way as it's off of I-45 about 30 miles south of
downtown Houston. It's hours are the same as the others, except for
being open on Mondays and closed on Wednesdays.
When will you be here?
