Crossstitch shops in Seattle/Tacoma area?

My two favorite shops in the area are Cross-Stitch Corner in Bellevue, and
ThreadNeedle Street, in Issaquah.  I haven't been to the shop in Puyallup,
and I do not like the one in Auburn.

Cross-Stitch Corner is located at 138 105th Ave. NE, Bellevue, and their
phone number is 425-454-1862.  It is a smaller shop, but has a nice
selection and is centrally located.  Pat and the staff are very, very
friendly.

ThreadNeedle Street is located at 485 Front Street North, in Issaquah.  The
phone number there is 425-391-0528.  It is a larger shop, and carries a lot
of supplies for needlepoint, including a large selection of hand-painted
canvases.  It is a fiber heaven - almost every fiber you can imagine is
carried fully in stock.  I've heard from others that the owner can be
stand-offish, but I thought her friendly.  She is very knowledgeable as
well, in many areas of needlework.  Threadneedle Street is the *only* shop I
know that carries silk gauze in more than just the little kits.

I hope you enjoy your trip!  Where are you visiting from?
