November, 2022



Happy November. The trees have finally changed to Autumn brilliance and Thanksgiving is only a few weeks away when we

all visit with family and share our blessings. Then onto to the Christmas - how time flies. Our retail Shop will be opened the Friday after Thanksgiving, November 25th from 12 noon to 6 p.m., however will be closed Saturday, November 26 due to the Bristol Borough Christmas Parade which shuts down the main streets and makes it impossible to reach our shop. Regular shop hours resume the following week.


In each newsletter I mention about the challenges that we face as shop owners. Show shipments from Picture This Plus and

Lakeside Lines taking 9 months to a year to get back into stock as well as delays in receiving Sampler Threads, Gloriana Silks, and Thread Gatherer flosses. All are supply issues these companies have been facing for the past two years. Now we have added Hand-dyed Jobelan and Mill Hill Metallica beads to the growing list. Wichelt, one of our largest distributors, is still taking 3 to 4 weeks just to process our orders, then it takes time for the shipment to arrive at our door. Let's keep our fingers crossed that 2023 Also - as we state "Please plan ahead" due to the mentioned issues - we ship the day our shipments arrive. We will hold all back orders until the ordered product arrives - and we only change for what we ship. If you decide you no longer want to wait for the back order, a simple e-mail or phone call is greatly appreciated.

Also on the business front, we are still adding odd pieces of fabrics under our "One Time Only" sale as well as adding items to our Dollar Days Sale, plus putting counters on patterns and kits that we are discontinuing under our Clearance and Discontinued tabs. If you get a change to visit our shop, you will see we are well stocked with all brands of flosses, and tons of Zweigart, Wichelt, and all Hand-dyed fabric brands.

Plus our racks and baskets are stocked with patterns and chart packs as well as an array of Kits - something for everyone.

Thursday & Friday from 12:30 to 6 p.m.

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.

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 -

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 Saturday after Thanksgiving due to Bristol's Christmas Parade (streets are shut down and makes it impossible to get to our shop), and Christmas Day. If there are any changes to this schedule, we will notify everyone 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 cutoff is the end of October, and and Sewing cut off is end of September. No exceptions!. This schedule enables our framer and seamstress time to finish your items in time for Christmas. We can take in framing after Halloween, 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. **DUE TO THE HOT WEATHER, THESE TRUNK SHOWS WILL BE RESCHEDULED TO A LATER DATE
