So um, any one here know any good stores where I could go pick up some supplies?  I'm at my Mum's place and would rather not trek down to the Garment district to get stuff to craft...Anyone know places uptown?

I got my stuff at Annie & Co which is at 1324 Madison Ave which is between 93rd & 94th streets (its a second floor store)

They were very helpful and nice there and they had tons of stuff.

 Rita's Needlepoint Shop, on East 79th St, either just east of Third or just east of Lexington, sells DMC floss and many #3 and #5 pearl skeins. they have some specialty floss as well, plus Kreinik threads.


edited, because today, thanks to Absinthe's recommendation, i went to Annie and Co., as i was in that neighborhood. wow, thank you! they were so nice that i almost want to learn needlepoint (and when i asked if they offered classes, they said i could just come in when i felt like it and they'd teach me). they carry Anchor and DMC, but i didn't check their stock out very carefully because i was too busy ogling the large variety of specialty threads that i'd only heard about, if that.    if you like to stitch on Aida they have a lot, but almost no linen. well, you can't have everything, and i am thrilled to find a new york store that stocks Caron Watercolours. all this, and two resident dogs, too.
