A Chance Meeting


Did you feel the tremors yesterday in stitching blogland??? Two stitching bloggers met by chance!  

I went to Inspired Needle on a lark yesterday.  I was on my way to meet some friends and had one hour before I needed to be there.  I also needed a skein of thread and a piece of fabric.  So, I made a rare Saturday morning pit stop at Inspired Needle.  

I walked in and received my usual standard greeting of "Hello, Ms. Duet" by the lovely Cathy R., owner and operator of Inspired Needle.  There was another shopper in the store who turned and said, "Laura?"  

This other shopper turned out to be none other than Jeanne of Willow Tree Stitcher who lives in Arizona!!!!  She was on her way from a family visit in Illinois to Midway Airport and had some time before her flight so she stopped by to check out Inspired Needle for the first time!!!!!

What a wonderful coincidence!!!!!!  I wish I had been able to stay longer to look at charts and talk stitching!!!!  Jeanne, it was wonderful to meet you and I hope your trip home was uneventful.  It sure made my day to meet you!!!

That's unbelievable!!!! I always told my kids that you better behave everywhere you go because you never know.........lol!! It's an interesting thought of how many times we may pass another blogger & never even know it!! Proof our cyber friends do exist!

OMG - How awesome to run into Jeanne in Cathy's shop especially since your visit was on a whim. Cathy is the best - she comes to FL once in a while and has joined our EGA chapter as a plural. She has a bunch of us down here addicted to Inspired Needle and she has the BEST customer service in the land as far as I'm concerned. Cheers to all 3 of you! Mel
