July, 2022

 

             

              Summer has arrived and many are heading for the beach and enjoying the great outdoors. Vacation time is also here, so  expect

delays in our shipping orders. Many of our suppliers are shorthanded or close for a week or two during this month as well as next to enable employees to take their vacation, and designers also like the summer off and can ship slower than usual.

 

        Again on the business front, nothing has changed - all hand-dye companies are taking months to ship in our restocks, and

some have been having issues getting 40 Ct. Linen which is backing up their shipping even more. Sampler Thread and many Kreinik metallic flosses are still an issue as well as select DMC specialty flosses.  All are taking longer to get back into stock than we like. Many stitchers do not understand that most, if not all the supplies used in our craft, come from European manufacturers. Even patterns are getting delayed from overseas designers. There does not appear any end in sight with these delays. All we ask is for everyone's patience. We fill orders as products are received, and if you have waited a while for fabric, we give you a call prior to shipping just to be sure you are still interested. No back orders are cancelled unless you do not respond to our call at which time we then cancel the pending back orders, or you let us know you are no longer interested. We do understand no one likes to wait months to start their project - then we contact the next person on the list.

 

       Many months ago, I purchased the contents of a closed shop which is why we started the One Time Only Fabric Sale. I will

continue to add odd cuts of fabrics - Zweigart as well as fabrics from many hand-dye companies, until our stock is depleted. We have many discontinued colors and counts of fabrics that have not been offered for some time. Keep a watch in the coming weeks as I will be posting Anne Cloth afghans in an array of colors as well as specialty fabrics including Soft Touch which was used for place mats, bread cloths, and more. With that said, we are still taking inventory and finding items we did not know we had and deleting others that have been discontinued. Counters are on the items that are discontinued and will drop off our site as they are sold.

Currently our Retail Shop will continue to be opened ONLY on

and

Saturdays from 11 to 3 p.m.

 

***Watch your e-mails as we might be opening on Tuesdays for the month of July and August with special hours***

 

If you see something on our web site, it is always best to jot down the code number, title, and designer -

descriptions do not help us to find the item since we have over 4500 titles in our store at all times - many having the same names.

Also, with having a web site, items do sell out but can be ordered special for you as long as we have a code number.

 

For anyone who cannot muster our front steps, we do have a side entrance,

just let us know once you arrive, and we will gladly open the door for you.

Chairs are positioned throughout as well for anyone who wants to sit and browse through our racks and baskets of patterns.

We want to make your shopping experience pleasant and enjoyable.

 

Please direct any questions or comments through our e-mail - yeoldecs@comcast.net

or give us a call. We love hearing from our cross stitching friends.

 

Until next month,

Mary & the Staff of Ye Olde Cross Stitchery

 

 

 

Dates to Remember (upcoming)- Mark your Calendars

2022 - Major Holidays that we might close the day before or after include: New Year's Day, Easter, Mother's Day, Father's Day, Memorial Day, July 4th, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day, and Christmas Day. If there are any changes to this schedule, we will notify by sending an e-mail to all on our mailing and will post a note on our shop door. If you intend to visit our shop prior to any of these days, please call before venturing just to be sure that we are open - no one wants to make a useless trip.

In Shop - Holiday Framing and Sewing cut off is the weekend before Thanksgiving. No exceptions. This schedule enables our framer and seamstress time to finish your items in time for Christmas. We can take in framing after Thanksgiving, but cannot guarantee holiday delivery. The same goes items that need finishing. We all want to enjoy the holidays - so plan ahead to avoid any disappointments.

  Trunk Show Schedule - We will be scheduling two trunks shows this summer - Diana Graebner/Lynn's Prints is expected in August, and Sister     Lou Stitches - some time in July. Once everything is set in stone, I will be sending a special invitation to each of the shows.
