Local and Not So Local Baltimore Needlework Shops -- August 23, 2007

I was planning on posting this information several days ago but I was slowed down by a bad head cold. I'm finally feeling better and I'm hoping that this will be helpful to someone traveling to Baltimore for Seminar!

We are very fortunate in the Baltimore, Maryland area that we have several local needlework shops. Each will be offering a variety of trunk shows, shuttle service, extended hours, and may be hosting designers. Please refer to each shop’s website for the latest and greatest information and for their regular operating hours.

If you are staying in town for a few days or if you are planning another visit soon, here are several shops that are not so local!

Each of these shops is 1 – 2 ½ hours driving time (depending on traffic) from Baltimore. I have pasted the information below from their websites or from the online yellow pages. Please contact each shop to confirm location, and hours.

- Cynthia, I failed to tell you how helpful this post was to me. I never made it to any of the shops except for the branch store for Needles & Threads of Ruxton, sadly, but that was due to a lack of time and energy to fight the traffic
