The years are catching up with me and I decided it was time to close or downsize.  I did not want to close the shop and retire and this  opportunity presented itself to move to Limerick and I thought that this is the route I should follow.  My new address will be 308 W Ridge Pike Limerick, PA 19468 and my phone number will be 610.454.9373.  To those of my stitchers who have been with me for a long time, this will be like going home.  The only difference will be instead of entering my shop from the side porch, you will need to continue around to the front door.

All this will take place the last week of August and over Labor Day Weekend.  Just Cross Stitch will be closed from Wednesday  Aug 30 through September 7.  I will officially reopen the shop on Friday September 8.  The First Friday Halloween Stitch will be postponed from the 1st to the 8th.

At this point in time, hours will remain the same:
    Wed thru Fri:  10 to 4    Sat:  10 to 3  and 1st Sunday of the month:  11 to 2

Don' worry, we will still be offering Gentle Arts, Weeks Dye Works, Classic Colorworks and DMC solid flosses.  Our large selection of linen and aida fabrics will move with us.  And we will continue to cut fabric to size and serge the edges to prevent raveling.  Also moving:   Mill Hill Beads and charts and some shop samples.  We will be getting rid of a lot of shop displays so if you are in need of a spinner rack or display rack to use in your craft room or help display your product at craft shows, come in and check us out. We have also have extra DMC wood cabinets and they too will be for sale. Prices will be reasonable.  Also, some of our shop samples will be for sale.

The only item that will be discontinued is premade frames.  All those in the shop are 60% off, so measure some of those unframed projects and check to see if we've a frame to fit.

We will continue to do framing and finishing.  You will still be able to bring in a piece and order a frame for it and do the mounting yourself.  Or we will be happy to mount it for you.

Changes are coming.  I know they are hard but I believe this is the best for me right now and you will continue to have a shop in the area.  Cross stitch is such a tactile craft and I know  a lot of my customers want to see and feel the fabric and check out the colors of the floss and you will still be able to do that.

I don't believe that any of the changes to the shop, except for the location, will interfere with me providing you with the same supplies and services you've been receiving over the last 21 years.

Stay tuned for more moving updates......

 This posting is time sensitive.  Deadline for ordering is Saturday August 5.

Once again, Lizzie Kate is coming out with a Christmas Mystery Sampler.  There will be 3 monthly parts, shipping the beginning of September, October and November.  Each part will contain a coordinating bonus project:  a 2 sided scissor fob, a pin pillow and a mini sampler.

Spirit of Christmas is stitched on 32ct Heartland linen from Picture This Plus, a new neutral fabric created just for the mystery sampler.  If you don't stitch on 32ct linen, you may also order a piece in 28ct or order it in 14 or 16ct aida.

The stitch count for Spirit of Christmas is 95w x 191h and will use colors compatible with her Holly and Hearts Mystery Sampler from 4 years ago. A thread pack with an exclusive new color from WDW can be ordered ordered which contains 11 skeins of floss.  You will be able to order an embellishment pack that will include goodies for Spirit of Christmas and the bonus pieces.

Charts (3) will retail at $9.25; WDW floss bundle $28.60; embellishment pack $17.25; linen $14.00 and aida $11.00.  Buy charts, fabric, floss and embellishment pack and receive a 10% discount.

Just give us a call or email with Spirit of Christmas in memo so I make sure to read the email.  And I will verify your order.  Orders must be placed by Saturday Aug 5 so I can meet her order deadline.

You must include what items you want and fabric size.  If you order chart, fabric, floss and embellishment pack all together you will  receive a 10% discount.

Don't delay.  Reserve your special holiday piece NOW!
