Where should a needlepointer live in Houston?  Moving soon, need
price ranges of residential areas and locations of shops.

The price isn't as important as the locality of the
needlework shop - right??

Ooh, good question.  Unfortunately, in Houston, the better shops I
know about are in more expensive residential areas.  

Turrentines, which is good for needlepoint (not so good for x-stitch)
is kind of between Bellaire and Meyerland.  Bellaire's an older
community as Houston goes (Houston kind of grew around it) -- it's
close to the Galleria and it's not too bad getting downtown -- but
it's going through suburban renewal, and the lots closest to the
elementary school (yes, lots -- most of the older houses are
considered tear-downs) are going for $130-140K.  New houses (most of
them pretty big) range from $350-500K.  Meyerland is a little better.

Needle Accent (a WONDERFUL shop) is in a shopping center (Woodlake
Square) that is on the south edge of the Memorial area -- another
kind of pricey one.

And then there's Twinkle's, which is across Sage from the Galleria.
(Need I say more?)

If you don't have to drive into Houston, there are places like
Spring (there's a shop in Old Town Spring which is supposed to
be terrific -- haven't made it there, though) on the north
side of town, and another in League City (which is another couple
of exits south of Johnson Space Center, on the south side of
Houston.  A lot of people that work at NASA live in League City.
Both Spring and League City are more reasonably priced places
to live, but if you have to commute into town, you'll spend 2-3
hours a day of valuable stitching time doing so!

There are other places I haven't found yet, I'm sure (for one thing,
I look for x-stitch places more than needlepoint).  When are you
moving?  Have you been here before?  (Enquiring minds want to know.
:-)))

I love it ! Now we are even planning where to live based on the location
of stitching stores !  (As those in the MD region know, I live only ~1
mile from my favorite shop, The Stitching post, in Catonsville, so this
idea certainly works for me.)

I have to warn you, though.  What you think you may be gaining in
convenience, you will most certainly be paying for in increased spending,
as in, "It's so easy to drop by the Post, I'll just run in for that one

picture.

Good luck.

I don't know if my first reply made it because i got cut off!  Try the
1960/ HWY 6-290 area!  I have alot of crafts shops by me, Michaels, Hobby
lobby, crafts etc..are just a few, plus a few local shops, Idle Hands is
within 5 min. and Stitches and more about 25 min.  The houses range in
any price range depending on the subdivision.  the community is growing
and is a nice area, with resonable commute to downtown.   Take Care!

What's wrong with that?  When we came up here to look for a place to live,
we started by visiting apartments.  After we found one that we liked a lot,
we spent the rest of the day driving around until we found a needlework
store (for me) and a comic book store (for him).  Once we knew there was at
least one of each within a reasonable distance, we went back and signed the
lease.  (Of course, his is 2 minutes away and mine is 20 minutes away.
Maybe next time I'll have to choose more carefully.)

and her first EGA meeting.)

Hi Mary!  Boy, can I relate to this!  I live within walking distance
of my store!  Apex, NC has a really nice small town feel to it with
a small town main street and everything.  And on this main street is
a store called The Hen's Tooth!  I'd say about 2 or 3 blocks from
my house!!

Very very dangerous!!!  =)

There is a shop in Webster, Tx. ...Cross Stitch Country, 16960 Hwy. 3.
(Clear Lake/Nasa area.)  I live in Texas City and go to the one in League
City and this one.  It's a nice size shop w/ a good selection.
