NeedleTravel App 1/6/15

January 6, 2015--Have added a new app to my page on the right titled "Favorite Apps and Tools".   I just learned about this app called NeedleTravel while reading FaceBook's Needlepoint Nation posts .  It's a free app (iPhone only) published by Syntress, LLC and just recently updated on November 3, 2014.

It's a great tool when looking for needlework shops which carry items for needlepoint, cross stitch, embroidery, quilting, yarn, etc.  You can also get the full address and telephone number of a shop as well as directions from your "current location".  Cool.

I only hope the designers keep the app current since shops come and go with an alarming frequency.


  1. It doesn't work for Canada. I'll keep it in mind if I ever have to go to the USA

  2. It is available on android phones. I have not tested it in a travel situation but it does identify stores by any zip code (by 10, 25, or 100 mile radius). Seems to be accurate for my area (Philadelphia). Melita
