New owner, name at needlework store

The Spokesman-Review

Kelly Andrew a longtime needlepointer who has worked at various stores, has bought Counted Stitches, 1306 N. Mullan Road, Suite A.

Andrew changed the name to Northwest Stitchery and plans to have a grand opening on July 8. Counted Stitches was at Sprague and Evergreen before owner Margie Williams moved it to Mullan Road for about a year.

A 10-year Spokane resident, Andrew said she learned to embroider when she was 12 years old and is looking forward to being her own boss and running her own business.

“I love helping the ladies getting the pieces of their projects together,” Andrew said.

The store is being remodeled, but Andrew is keeping it open. It was stocked with a full line of patterns, threads, cloth and other supplies for cross-stitching hobbyists. The hours are Tuesday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Saturday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Andrew also plans to begin cross stitch and simple needlepoint classes in mid-July.

The phone number of the shop has been changed to 927-8840.
