Needlework Supplies & Accessories
Starting September 1, 2019, the shop will not be open on Mondays. We aplogize for this, but family commitments demand my attention on Mondays.

Summer construction has started!
Exits from I69 to 46 only allow eastbound travel for the next 75 days. 46 is 1 lane in each direction. Please plan your detour route before leaving home!

(map is NOT interactive)

The easiest routes are:

From the north on I69/IN37, take Exit 123 for College Ave/Walnut Street, it is a 2-lane/2-way highway (also known as Old 37).  Stay on this road until you get to the stop light at IN45 & IN46 (there's a McDonald's on the left just before this intersection). You will want to turn RIGHT (west) onto IN46.  This will take you through the construction that is going on at the IN46 & I69 interchange, and then on to Fancy Works.

From the south on I69/IN37, take Exit 118 for IN48/3rd Street, you will want to turn LEFT (west) at the top of the exit ramp (there are two left turn lanes, choose the right-hand one). At Curry Pike (there's a CVS on the right at this intersection), you will turn RIGHT (north) and stay on Curry Pike until it ends at IN46, then turn LEFT (west) to get to Fancy Works.
