Here it is - my NEW phone number: 215-513-9373

Couldn't keep the entire number since I was moving into a new area code; did manage to keep the last 4 digits.

Some things are moved already and more this week with the final move on Saturday. Heard something about rain - so please say a prayer that it only rains on Saturday after 5 PM . Thanks.

I will be here - open - of sorts - till Friday. Then everything gets moved Saturday. Last to be packed will be fabric and floss. Models being packed today plus frames. Charts Thursday. Boy, I didn't realize how much 'stash' I have here at the shop.

Gotta go and get changing my address with suppliers and get packing more.

See ya, Carolyn

Well, Here they are, fellow stitchers! Pictures of the new shop - just 7 days away till the big move. Next week, we'll be packing in earnest. I will be open at the new shop on Tuesday Oct 27 - some boxes may still be sitting around but they will be taken care of quickly. There will be lots to do and time to do it.
If you come into the shop anytime from Oct 27 to Nov 14, you will receive a 20% discount on any one item of your choice. (You could take this 20% savings and go check out the Lederach Tea Room across the street. I haven't been there in ages but I hear the food is good.)
I will have a GRAND OPENING on Fri, Sat and Sun, November 27, 28 & 29.
Come in and check out our specials and register to win one of two Gift Certificates given away that weekend.
Hours remain the same, T-S 10-4, Th 10-7 and 1st Sun 11-2. Hours for the Grand Opening will be posted closer to the time.
Our current phone number will be automatically transferred to our New number. I will be able to give that to you next week.
Don't forget to check out our new digs. Talk to you next week.
Keep stitching!

Hi, Everybody! I'm back to work after a really great cross stitch retreat weekend. We had a fabulous time. I had classes with Alma and Barb from Blackbird Designs and Jeannette from Jeannette Douglas Designs. They gave us 2 really nice projects (there goes my 'to do' pile) and then we received other projects throughout the weekend. Shepherd's Bush gave us a pattern for a pumpkin 'bag' and Charland gave everyone a beautiful sterling silver acorn necklace. It was relaxing and beautiful. Weather cooperated and was warm. Didn't take a 'walk' on the beach- don't know how my new knees would handle the loose sand but had a great view of the beach from our hotel balcony. It was soooo relaxing but it's great to be home.

Don't forget, the shop will be open this Sunday from 11-2, to make up for my Sunday off, last week.

Rosewood Manor charts have arrived at the shop. More charts are due to arrive today. Here's some of them: Blackbird's Halloween Greetings, Midnight Watch and Joyeux Noel ( a really cool book), Midnight Stitching's Quaker Welcome, Country Cottage Needleworks's Pie Menu and Pegasus' Favorite Dog Stocking Collection.

Well, gotta go and get some more sorting and packing done. The move has been scheduled for Saturday October 24th. That week will mean some serious packing so get your floss and fabric now. Then come out on the week of October 27 and check out the new 'digs'.

Bye, for now. Carolyn
