Hi Stitchers,

 

As they say, April showers bring May flowers. Well here in PA we had terrible rains and wind all month long. Now the temperatures have started to give us warn, sunny days. With that said, On Friday, April 30th I decided it was hot in the shop and put on the air conditioner. Immediately one half

of our lights went out. I checked the electrical panel, nothing was amiss. Then I noticed that I had no phones. So immediately I called an electrician who thought the strong winds were the cause of the issue. Well it was not. Apparently some of the heavy rains we had seeped into our electrical box which caused the issue. Meaning, we need a new interior box as well as exterior box. Nothing like working half in the dark. Hopefully once we are back into the shop, at least the phones will be working and we expect the inside electrical work to be completed any day. For those who visited our shop on Saturday, thanks for all your understanding. We will be adding Friday hours from 12 noon to 4 p.m. to our open days starting May 14th,

and right after Memorial Day will be adding Thursday hours 12 noon to 4 p.m. as well. Hopefully, with COVID in my area starting to subside, we can get back to normal soon. I will be updating our home page with hours and dates as we add them since there is still more electrical work to be done that will close our shop for a day or two when the outside box gets replaced. As soon as we know anything, I will let you know. I don't want someone to make a useless trip to our shop only to find that we are closed. You can always check our Home Page, Google, and Facebook for any updates, and those of you on our shop mailing list will also receive a directive from us regarding any changes.

 

As I previously stated, since people are now getting vaccinated, we are finding people ready to move on with their lives. Same is happening with our suppliers. Some are now starting to ship faster and it appears overseas shipments are arriving sooner as well. We have started receiving shipments of fabrics from Lakeside Linens and Picture This Plus every other week which is catching up back orders from last year. Weeks Dye Works is also shipping fabrics that we have been waiting on as well. So if you all sit tight, your fabric might be on the way sooner than later. Unfortunately, I wish I could say the same thing for Sampler Thread. They still have issues with many colors of floss that we keep re-ordering over and over again. I know they dye on colored floss, and now that everything is loosening up, maybe they will get their base floss and we can finally move on after a year and a half of these issues - yes they had problems prior to COVID. And as far as Kreinik, they have added more employees and are trying to manufacturer more floss colors, but their base flosses also come from Europe which seems to be an issue with some colors and types. Again, a little patience, and I think all these issues should be resolved. Most took a year to happen, so waiting a few more months is is not a life time. If you need to put your project aside, now you can go outside and enjoy the fresh air. Hopefully in short order, this year will seem like a nightmare, and we can start enjoying the movies, eating out, and visiting with friends. Life does move on.

Vaccinations, Social Distancing, and Masks are helping to lower the cases of COVID-19 - your help is appreciated by all. Not only will it help you, but also others. Let's all work together!

 

As we continue to say to those visiting our shop - If you are interested in a specific item that you saw on our web site, please write down the title, code number, and/or designer. Giving us a brief description doesn't help with our assisting you. We keep a very large inventory of patterns, and cannot possibly remember each and every book that we stock or show on our web site. Items also sell out, or we could be waiting for restocks to arrive. Lastly, if you cannot muster our front steps, we have a side ground level entrance. Just give us a call and we will gladly open the door for you. We have chairs as well for anyone who wants to sit and browse through our racks and baskets of patterns.

We read all customer comments and suggestions. Some of the changes we have made to our site were due to customer requests. We continue to be a customer-oriented shop trying to help each and every customer. If you have a question, we are always available by phone and e-mail. We respond to all correspondence. For Facebook lovers, join us on our Facebook page for up-to-the-minute information. We post on Facebook to keep everyone informed of product delays, price changes, new shop models, and new releases. Also - remember we are only a phone call away for any questions you might have or send an e-mail. We respond to all correspondence.

Happy Stitchin' until next time,

Mary and The Staff at Ye Olde Cross Stitchery

We all want to enjoy the holidays - so plan ahead to avoid any disappointments.
