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!!!!

Have you ever wished you had backing fabric and trims to finish a small project?  That you had them in your stash and didn't have to go running around searching for just that right piece of fabric and that right trim in the right color?  Well, now that's possible with a new product from Lady Dot Creations, priced at $13.00.

There are  currently 5 themed bags of finishing goodies:  ICY for those winter projects; SPOOKY for Halloween; HOHOHO for Christmas; AUTUMN and PRIM.   Each bag comes with 2 or 3 pieces of velveteen approximately 9x10 and 3 or 4 lengths of coordinating trims, styles of trim will vary with the pack.  Could be chenille trim, eyelash trim, rick rack, pompoms and an extra bonus.  ( I have to apologize for not knowing the actual number of pieces.  I'm just so excite0......d about getting them in I forgot to ask quantities when I ordered them.  I need these finishing packs just as much as you do.)00

I just think this is such a great way to have some stash on hand to be able to completely finish the project that you've just stitched.  I'm a 'lazy' finisher.  I love to stitch and if I finish one, I can just pick up a new or WIP project and continue stitching.  I've lately got hooked on some of the flosstube videos and I'm so envious that they show new stash, WIPs  and then the FFO (finally finished object).  If I have these finishing packs on hand, I might be more motivated to finish that little pillow to add to my display bowl or basket.

Here are peeks of the current packs available (more will be coming out at market in March 2018: pastels, summer and patriotic which I'm waiting for).  Stop by and check them out.  They should be here by the 15th of December.
