|Hi, we are glad you found our website and
would like to welcome you to our family owned online cross stitch supply store.
This website has come about from a great love of cross stitch and years of
searching and buying over the internet. My sister (Colleen) and I decided
to open our own web store which incorporates all those features that we
wished the other cross-stitch sites had. Our intention was to keep the
site simple and easy to negotiate, easy to order and to provide a happy
one-stop and safe online shopping experience.
Having lived in the New Hampshire countryside I know how
difficult it is to find a store within a 50 mile radius who can supply me
with everything I need from floss, fabric and wide selection of charts and
kits, all in the one place and at a price I can afford - we have
endeavored to provide all of this on our site. Most of the products and
designs on our website have been added at the suggestion of our customers
who regularly email us with requests.
Our website has been in operation since 2001 and in March 2003 we opened our "Bricks and Mortar" store in
Grantham (New Hampshire). In 2008 we relocated to a larger premises also in Grantham, NH and then again in 2012 to larger premises again. In 2013 we decided to move the business to Spring, Texas where we are today.
We have an
area where you can sit and stitch (a retreat where
stitchers can meet and spend some time stitching and catching up with
their fellow stitching friends). We welcome get togethers and if you wish to hold a gathering at our store, please let us know and we will be happy to provide some complimentary snacks and refreshments. A feature of our store is our huge wall of fibers which is
being added to all the time.
Whilst we attempt to keep in stock the most popular items we
are unable to carry every item you see on the website - our mission is not necessarily to be the fastest on the net but to offer the greatest selection - there may be a short wait while we order an item in and for that reason we
will provide free shipping for customers who come in looking for a
particular design that is not in store at the time of their visit or call ahead to preorder an item before you visit. We also
have many shop models in store and these are being added to every week.
Our thanks to Cath, Darlene, Sue and Evelyn who have stitched many of our models, their work is very much appreciated.
Our site (and business) is still growing and we will continue to
expand our selection of cross stitch and needlepoint supplies - so
please check with us frequently to see what
we have added to the site. We also welcome any suggestions
and ideas (in fact we would love them!) to make your online shopping
experience an improved one.
We hope you enjoy browsing the website ... and please us visit again soon.
