Forget-Me-Nots was established in June 2011. The independently owned needlework store is located in a historic home that owner Lisa Houck remodeled. The Grove, OK store is 1800 square feet with a view of Grand Lake.
Forget-Me-Nots specializes in counted cross stitch but they also carry needlepoint, stamped cross stitch and embroidery, Brazilian embroidery, Huck/Swedish weaving, Yarn, Punch Needle, Crewel and Tatting supplies.
Forget-Me-Nots was born when a friend of Lisa's decided to retire and close her needlework shop. Lisa purchased her cross stitch inventory and began the process of opening a store.
Lisa and her husband had a piece of property from a previous business that had a little rock house on it.
"It was so cute outside, but a wreck inside. In February we began ripping out walls and starting over. One month before we were to open the Joplin tornado hit an hour away in the area Greg and I grew up. This was a setback and we opened 6 weeks later then expected. We finally opened the doors to the public on May 27th, 2011.
Since then I have met so many wonderful stitchers. I love when they come sit on the front porch with me to share a glass of tea, enjoy the lake view and stitch."
Forget-Me-Nots has a beautiful classroom and lots of places to just sit and stitch. They are currently trying to plan yearly or bi-yearly retreats on the lake.
Forget-Me-Nots carries a large supply of cross stitch and are building their inventory of embroidery and needlepoint. They also carry gift items, a few gourmet foods and antiques.
