Support Your Local Shop

Vicky makes an important point about shopping at real needlepoint shops instead of Amazon.

There are other reason why Amazon isn't a great place to shop:  needlepoint books in particular are wildly overpriced.

Amazon's treatment of its warehouse workers is suspect as well.  Next time you need something, try using a small business instead of a behemoth.  A real needlepoint store will thank you!

You are so right about the overcharging of needlepoint books on Amazon. I saw some that were going for $400 or more. I believe the sellers think because a book is out of print someone will pay an exhortative price to get one. I wonder if anyone pays those prices.
