                    For the past few years our industry has experienced many challenges as all of you might or might not be aware. Hand-dyed fabric delays taking months to receive restocks, discontinued bead styles and colors, Mill Hill discontinuing their buttons, Mill Hill kit restock delays due to button replacements, and that is only some of the problems that shop owners are experiencing. Recently Kreinik was sold, and their business moved from West Virginia to California. So now more delays. Since distributors cannot stock everything, when we find a pattern is discontinued, we purchase directly from a designer if it is still available. We try to keep the best sellers in stock as usually patterns do not take long to get back into stock. However, sometime a designer might be on vacation, have family issues, or even sick and might not send our order timely. At our end, we send what we have and will back order an item - then send when it arrives. Our industry is made up of Mom's and Pop's who work out of their home. Many have a real job, and design on the side. Some have young children that keep them busy. Everyone has a life outside of Cross Stitch. Covid has also brought many new designers, floss companies, and hand-dyed fabric companies to our industry. So our industry is growing by leaps and bounds. Who said Cross Stitch is dying? Certainly not our customers. It is nice to see new designers as some or our older companies has cut back on designing while other shut shop. Those that are gone, we have counters on their patterns. If you need help is finding anything, give us a shout. We are only a phone call or e-mail away.

If you see something on our web site, PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE - jot down the code number, title, and designer -

descriptions do not help us to find the item since we have over 6500 titles in our store at all times - many having the same names.

Please do not put a phone in our face to show us a pattern - a title and code number works best.

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
