Many of you are on facebook and know I have a page, Just Cross Stitch, PA.

Well, now I have a group page entitled  Just Cross Stitch, PA Surplus Cross Stitch Supplies.  We will be posting pics of charts, fabrics, etc that we no longer have room to display, especially since the move to a smaller shop last September.

Go check out the page for some good bargains and stay tuned for future postings.

Lots of new goodies are pics:

Abbey Rose is starting a new series....LONG MAY SHE WAVE.  Part 1 is above and part 2 is below.  Part 2 is available as a single chart or with a round painted box with 1776 on the top.  The circle piece below is mounted in the lid of the box.  We have several box kits arriving available for purchase, which includes the pattern.  Reserve your box today as supplies are limited.

Another chart entitled LONG MAY SHE WAVE....this one from Barbara Ana.  I love her 'patriotic' crows.

AUTUMN KEEPER is another Barbara Ana design.

Blackberry Designs has created a series of witch hats.  You know me and how I love here's a couple more to add to my stitching stash.  OOPS AH' RIBBIT,  SOOO BOO-T-FUL, WHOO'S THE GOOD KITTY AND WHOO'S AH' SCARRRED.  Make the hat or just an ornie.  She's such a good designer with so much detail!

Mani Di Donna has done what I think is a beautiful patriotic design.  Yes, if you read it, there is a grammar error.  She is a European designer, hence the mistake.  Not really a big problem, you'll just need to rearrange the words as  you stitch them.  LIFE, LIBERTY & HAPPINESS is still a great patriotic piece.

Another reprint from Prairie Schooler is VILLAGE GREEN....a much sought after pattern.  Now you'll be able to own a copy without breaking the bank to purchase the OOP chart (even if it is reprinted only on  glossy paper).

With Thy Needle and Thread brings us SUMMER IN BALTIMORE.  Future releases are expected for the remaining seasons.  SPRING IN BALTIMORE  is already here.

Homespun Elegance brings us PATRIOTIC PEACE.  Would be a quick stitch and finish for upcoming Memorial Day  and Fourth of July.

Plum Street Samplers is releasing 5 new designs shortly and some of them blend in very well with the Farmhouse theme this year.





SAMPLER LESSON THREE.   This was originally released as a kit and is released now just as a chart.

There will be a few changes at Just Cross Stitch for the next couple of weeks.  I'm going to be having surgery this week and I will be out probably through the end of March.  Ronnie, the owner of Party Magic Plus, where I share space, will be taking care of the shop for me.  She will do her best to assist you in your needs. 

Since Ronnie does party decor, she sometimes has orders, especially on the weekends, that she needs to deliver and set up.  So, if you are coming out to the shop, please give Ronnie a call ahead and make sure she will be at the shop and not out on a balloon delivery.  Her number is 610.489.1014.

The shop hours will change to 11 to 4 during this time.

Take care and keep stitching.  See you in April.

I guess you have heard the news by now.....the designer of Lizzie Kate charts is retiring.  Alan and Linda Ebright will be closing their business as of the end of March.  After that date, whatever is left at our distributors will be all that is available.

Her last design....Spring Smalls (completing the series) will be released on March 1.

I will be placing an order at the end of February for special charts, inspirational boxer kits or button packs that you may want.

Don't dawdle, check out her website and select those items you've been thinking about and get them ordered.  She has stated, that knowing she was going to retire, some designs have not been reprinted and are  available in limited quantities.

Place your order now.  Call me at 610.409.9373 or email your order to

Thank you  Lizzie Kate for all your wonderful designs.

Yes, I know I've been bad about keeping my blog up to date.  Follow me on Facebook and you'll see new things coming into the shop.  In a kinda 'dead' zone now while designers are working on their pieces for Market release the first weekend in March.  So not much is being released.

But we will be having a SUPERBOWL SALE here at the shop in Limerick.  The entire shop will be discounted by 20%.  We still have a great selection of fabrics and I still carry the entire line of Gentle Art Sampler Thread, Weeks Dye Works and Classic Colorworks threads.  We also carry the entire line of solid DMC colors.  

Come check us out and get a project to last you until Market.

As for those waiting for the LHN Farmhouse series, it should be arriving this week.  As soon as charts arrive at the distributors, they go right back out the door. For those of you who requested the floss packets. they are here.  I'm just waiting for the first chart to arrive.

See you over the weekend for the sale and keep stitching!

SATURDAY FEB. 3   from  10 to 3
SUNDAY     FEB. 4    from  11 to 3

It's that time of year again....a new year only a handful of days away.  I want to thank all my customers for a good year and to wish you a very Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and a very Happy and Healthy New Year.

A lot has happened this year personally and in the shop and we will continue to see new things for the shop next year.  There are already plans afloat.  I just have to get some computer knowledge to get them under way.  It's tough teaching an old dog new tricks especially when it is yourself.

Next week, Wednesday Dec 27 through Saturday Dec 30, Just Cross Stitch will have it's PRE INVENTORY SALE.   Everything in the shop, except DMC floss, will be 20% off.  Frequent Buyer cards will not be punched or redeemed.  We will be open regular hours:  WED thru FRI 10 to 4 and SAT 10 to 3.  Do a quick inventory of your stitching needs and plan to start some new projects next year and stock up on supplies. 

See your at the SALE!!!!
