January 2022



              January has arrived and so has the cold weather - it actually felt good to have a few days off in a row that I could stitch. I will be posting new shop models once they are framed. As many might not know, we have been having issues with our inventory program for some time. Well things came to a head in November, and we were forced to get a new program fast. Since that time, we have been trying to inventory everything in our shop. If you have ever visited us, you will know that is a very large undertaking and it is taking us much longer than we expected. Hopefully within the next three months, we will know what we do and do not have in stock. Also, I will be posting under a "One Time Only" tab on our website, one of a kind pieces of fabric many are hand-dyed fabrics as well as discontinued Zweigart fabric . These are off cuts, or odd sizes. I will be adding some each week, so check back often. I have added counters so they are deleted as they are sold.

Also, once our inventory is completed, I will be adding more items to our Dollar Days tab.


            As I say again - Lakeside Linens and Picture This Plus are taking 9 months + to get back into stock. They are out of 40 Ct. Linen and have been for months with no idea when they will receive more. Also, all flosses from The Gentle Arts and Gloriana Silk are taking weeks to months to get back into stock. These issues are supply and dye issues with no end in sight. Again, as I always say, order well in advance or sub these products if you want to start you project sooner rather than later. Mill Hill has increased all their bead prices as well as all their Kit prices. Zweigart has increased some of their fabric prices as well. Our suppliers always tell us what is new, they never give us an advance warning when prices are going up. We only find out when we place a restock order. We have been experiencing delays with receiving patterns and kits from overseas. All items are sent the day they arrive. Again - order well in advance to avoid disappointments.

After Christmas Sale


We still have an array of Pre-made Frames as well as towels and bibs.

Stop by if you are interested - once these items sell out, they cannot be restocked.

Check our One Time Only tab for fabrics that are on sale as well


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 -

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


Until next month,

Mary & the Staff of Ye Olde Cross Stitchery
