The Stitchin' Post

About 10 miles from The Quiltery is The Stitchin' Post in downtown Lexington, VA, a town that is also home to both the Virginia Military Institute (VMI) and Washington and Lee University.
Outside the front window was a charming yarn-bombed bicycle.  As we learned from the owner, this was a left over from last year when they yarn bombed many of the businesses in town - it appears to have held up well.
The window declares this to be the place where fiber artists come to play.
Upon entering, we found that it was primarily a yarn shop, though they participated in Row By Row and had some fat quarters for sale.  As the owner told us, they are so close to The Quiltery that she just sends her quilting customers there for fabric.  But she does teach quilting classes, and has plenty of scraps available for anyone who wants to use them.
The row and license plates were on display.  Kathy was lucky enough to get the last row kit.
They had 2 license plates to choose from, or buy both!
The winning row quilt for the shop was on display.
Though there was not much in the way of fabric here (do we really need more?), the owner was delightful and we liked the row design.  Many quilters are also knitters, as both of us are, so would enjoy this shop as well.
