Needlework shops in Houston

As with many of you, we have been thinking and worrying about our friends and family in Houston, Texas, and surrounding areas since Hurricane Harvey began late last week. Our hopes, prayers and wishes, like yours, are for everyone to be safe, and for relief from the floodwaters to come quickly. 

The needlework industry is one big family. Stitchers, shops, designers, and teachers in the devastated area, reach out to us and your needlework friends. Our hearts break for your beautiful city, its people and pets. "It absolutely is worse than it seems," says stitcher Tara on Kreinik's Facebook page. 

We have seen many Facebook enquiries about the status of needlework shops, whether they are ok, and open. Thank you to the stitchers who have posted updates. Judy's Stitchery Nook in Harlingen was spared the worst. Chaparral plans on opening Wednesday August 30. ABC Stitch Therapy seems to be fine, but they can't get in yet (as of August 29). Past Times Needlepoint is heavily damaged. While we haven't heard from all shops, we encourage you to contact each store before venturing out—and of course don't venture out unless it is safe to do so (and keep in mind there are many road closures). These include: 

As of this posting, JoAnn's (fabric and craft stores) have notified us that the following are temporarily closed due to Hurricane Harvey:
  • 1102 - BEAUMONT, TX
  • 1268 - BRYAN, TX
  • 1283 - HUMBLE, TX
  • 1402 - HOUSTON, TX
  • 1418 - HOUSTON, TX
  • 1433 - HOUSTON, TX
  • 2152 - WEBSTER, TX
  • 2206 - SUGAR LAND, TX
  • 2226 - KATY, TX
  • 2292 - SPRING, TX
  • 2387 - NEW BRAUNFELS, TX
  • 2415 - HOUSTON, TX

Needlework designers

For all of our designer and teacher friends in the areas, you are in our thoughts and hearts. Check in when you are able. Kreinik will be a vendor at the upcoming Destination Dallas needlepoint market (wholesale only). We hope to see you—and hug you!—there.
