Just Cross Stitch is going to discontinue carrying DMC perle cottons of all sizes.  The entire stock is on sale at $1.00 per skein or ball.  I have colors in all sizes...3,5,8 and 12.

Getting rid of this product will allow more room for existing stock.  Also it will mean that I will have some DMC floss display boxes for sale.  These are constructed of wood with plastic drawers and plastic inserts for the floss.  Just take out the insert and you can store anything you want in this drawer that measures approximately 11x13 and 2.5 inches deep.  Give me a call at 215.513.9373 if interested.

June 2016 Just Cross Stitch Magazine

This issue is now available in the shop.  Some nice charts are available in this issue.  Part 3 of the Hardanger Band Sampler is finally here.  There's a nice article on antique needlework perforated paper items.  They give an Adam & Eve sampler design done on the perforated paper but you could certainly do it on linen.   The Primitive Hare offers up a Bee Happy chart which is really cute. Niky's Creations offers 2 Strawberry fobs Christmas ornaments.  The Summer  season in chalk art from Hands On Designs continues the series with one more to come.  There are some nursery rhyme pictures and coasters for the avid chessman,  Check it out,,,,a pretty good issue.

Punch Needle and Primitive Stitcher 2016 Spring Issue

It is here!

Loaded with lots of punch needle designs.....did you ever think of putting punch needle on a wreath?  Well check out this issue.  Not quite my 'ideal' wreath but it does give you lots of ideas.  I can really see a punch needle patriotic  wreath.  There's also a punch needle rabbit pocket hanger that has wool tabs and buttons on the top that is really cute.

There are at least 6 cross stitch designs in the current issue.  Here's one by Teresa Murgida.  This may not be the ideal stitch for you but check out the embroidery additive at the top.  Think about using such an idea on your own piece.

Current issue is in stock for $8.99 each.  Call and reserve your copy today.  If you can't pick it up, we can mail it to you.

Cataract Surgery

It's that time again, to have my other eye done.  The shop will be closed on Thursday April 7 and Friday April 8 for the procedure.  I hope the surgery goes well and  I expect to be back in the shop on Saturday from 10-3.  SEE you then.  (When I had testing this last Tuesday, I was shocked at how bad the eye really is.)
