I love to cross stitch and always go the the Needlewoman East shop when I'm in the Falls Church area. This shop has been around for years and they have personalized service and a huge selection of needlecraft products. I always find different cross stitch type kits that you just can't find at the 'Big Box' stores. The atmosphere of the store is homey and usually the owner is present. I recommend you make the trip if you are in the DC area. You'll be pleasantly pleased.
