News Updates–Stitching Supplies, Classes and More are coming!
December 1, 2013 – Thank you to everyone who helped make “Shop Small Business” such a success this past weekend! If you didn’t get a chance to come in, you still have the whole month of December to stop by and see what’s new. We are consistently adding new products (Petite Scissors, Mill Hill Kits); new threads (Burmilana, Sea Grass, Floche, Paternayan, Cosmo) and new charts/designers (Filigram, Tempting Tangles, MTV Designs, Seba, Wiehenburg Designs) and a whole lot more! We are ordering painted canvases and find playing with all the threads so much fun!
The Country Cottage – Frosty Forest (9-month series) - #1-Racoon Cabin has arrived and we have the chart, button and fabric. If you have signed up, it’s ready to be picked up. We still have a few available if you still want to join in, give us a call or send a quick e-mail.
Little House Needleworks – Calendar Girls (12-month series) is due to be released mid-December. Sign-ups are still being taken if you want to join in on this one!
Inspirations #80 just arrived today, so they will be shipping the first of the week. They have outdone themselves on this issue.
We are also happy to announce Janet has joined our team who will help you with your painted canvases to suggest threads and even write a stitch guide for your project. Janet is fun, knowledgeable and enjoys helping you with your canvas projects.
We will try to post the new classes coming up for 2014, but here’s a sneak peak: Janet will be doing an Introduction to Canvas on January 4, 2014 (2:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m.) to give an overview of what Canvas is and how much fun it can be. Starting January , Janet will also be teaching Beginning/Intermediate Canvas (5 sessions). Additional Open Stitching will be available at No Charge! New classes for 2014 will be listed under “Classes and Special Events Registration.” See what’s coming up for 2014 !!
We have had more requests for the Home Sweet Home kits, so we will hold the group rate through December, but January 1, 2014, the price will be going up.
November 18, 2013 - Heads up for Black Friday! We will be opening early – 10:00 a.m. to help everyone for the start of their holiday shopping (for your friends or yourself)! Let us know what you want for the Holidays!
The inventory for the shop and the website are getting closer to being done and having everything “dumped” on the website. We hit 30,000 items this weekend so we are really excited about getting all those threads, charts, canvases and the list goes on….onto the website for your shopping pleasure! In the meantime, don’t hesitate to e-mail or call us if you don’t see what you need. We probably already have it in stock!
NEWS FLASH: We are finishing up the last “Home Sweet Home” kits for threads/fabrics. Thank you for everyone’s patience as we were overwhelmed with orders for this project. Hopefully, when you get your package, the wait was worth it all! If you still want one in time for Christmas at the group rates we have posted, let us know before the end of November. December 1, 2013 the price will go up to reflect pulling all the threads/fabrics individually. So get your kits while they are at the lower group rate.
September 16, 2013 – It’s here! The new “Home Sweet Home” book has arrived and we are processing the orders in which they were received. We hope to have them all out soon. The kits are also coming along, so start watching for them to arrive.
We also have received the Lizzie Kate new Halloween Mystery Sampler and still have some available. Let us know which type of fabric you want and we can ship that right out.
Some other great news! Paternayan Persian yarns are now being produced again and we have all 150 colors that are now available. We are on the list to receive the other 300+ colors as soon as they are available. They are luscious, so let us know if you need some. The color names/numbers are the same as the old Paternayan, nothing has changed.
We are also special ordering painted canvases; if you’re looking for some, let us order them for you. Our prices are reasonable and we have now been tagged by our local customers with the name of ”the thread mecca” in Denver. It’s a wonderful compliment! If you’re looking for any special threads, just call or e-mail us! We ship all over the world.
July 30, 2013 – We received an update from our distributor about the “Home Sweet Home” book due out the end of July…..
”I’ve just received word back from the buyer, who’s indicated that unfortunately the shipment was delayed until 7/22/13, coming out of Shanghai. Which means that this shipment now is not set to arrive until the middle of August. I will keep you posted from here.”
So it looks like the middle of August before we will be able to ship those pre-orders. Stay tuned!
June 13, 2013 - We just received a nice note from Olga in Russia and just had to post it! We do ship all over the world!
Well, today I received a paсkage! I can’t belive it’s so fast! I’m glad that delivering method was Ems Express. Russian Post and customs can extend delivering for months.
I want to say thank you so much for my dream came true! I spent a lot of time scrutinizing threads! It’s so amazing! Every thread is so different and awesome! I’m so exciting! Everything is very carefully packed, thank you for great work! I’m really happy that I find your store!
Thank you, Olga
June 4, 2013 – A BIG Thank You to Mary Corbet and her blog “Needle’n Thread” for the nice commentary on our website. We hope she will come by and visit our shop when she gets a chance! We have now set up a special tab “LIMITED DEALS” that has all the Home Sweet Home information listed on it, including a way to pre-order the re-release of the book in July 2013 (you will not be charged for the book until it is mailed)! We are now offering two kit options: ”Threads, Beads, Charms and Sequins Kit” and a “Fabrics Kit” for the Home Sweet Home. We’ve tried to detail what each Kit includes under the tab for the kits, but if you have questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us!
May 3, 2013 – We just got a sneak peak of the new “Halloween” special edition from Just Cross Stitch. We are taking pre-orders, so if you want one….go to “New Products” to reserve your copy!
Inspirations #78 is on it’s way….sign up now for one issue or get a better rate for subscribing! Our prices cannot be beat! Check under “New Products”!
We have also ordered the new Little House Needleworks Mystery Sampler (3 parts starting in June; kit includes the 3 parts, Weeks Dye Works floss and your choice of 30 or 35 count of Weeks Dye Works Straw linen). This is also listed under the “New Products” for either the 30 or 35 count fabric.
April 4, 2013 – If you are looking for the “Home Sweet Home” threads, beads or charms….we have the WHOLE kit here! We have found ALL the threads, beads and charms for this kit, so don’t let anyone say they’re not available…they are here! There are only a couple of the items listed that are no longer available (we called the manufacturer and verified this information). Contact us if you are interested in getting the WHOLE kit or just need any of the other threads you’re having trouble finding! We also have now heard the book will be reprinted and out by the end of July 2013! It’s a gorgeous piece and worth your time and effort to stitch.
March 10, 2013 – Have you started noticing new items and new categories that are being added? With the number of new sign-ups and orders, the word is getting out about our new website. Keep watching as we are just about ready to dump (for lack of a more sophisticated computer lingo) all the items from our store computer into the website! As of today, we have 19,000 items ready to dump! We will still have pictures to add and tweaking to do, but we are excited about getting everything on the website. If you have suggestions for us, please feel free to contact us….we love the feedback!!
January 14, 2013 – Happy New Year!
New thread colors!!
DMC 127 has come out with a new color to Celebrate 30 years! It is a beautiful varigated blue and it won’t last for long. We have it in stock! There is also a Sampler that will be available in the next few days that uses this gorgeous thread. Check it out under the DMC floss.
EdMar threads — Emerald Green — in all seven weights and now in stock. Fabulous color!
We are starting the New Year off with a trunk show from Carolyn Mitchell. Stop by the shop and see all of her wonderful samples. Carolyn will be in Denver, Colorado at the shop on Monday, January 21, 2013 from 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. . . . come by and say hi to her and pickup some of her beautiful canvas designs. She is a remarkable designer and we are all looking forward to meeting her. Refreshments will be served.
December 26, 2012 – Hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas and will have a safe and Happy New Year! We enjoyed the day off, but are back at it today. We want to thank everyone that has started checking out our new website and letting us know what they want! A Stitching Shop has grown this year and hope it will continue to grow in 2013! Remember, this website is a work in progress and there are some items that will show up on your final invoice, not the preliminary one that is e-mailed to you, i.e., shipping, handling, insurance and postage. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us. We also have posted the first classes of 2013 … just click on “Classes and Special Events Registration” to see what’s coming up! Check back often as we continue to add classes through the new year.
Something that is really exciting is we now have regular hours! If you’re in the Denver, Colorado area, stop by our 2,600 square foot shop to see all the goodies we have! Our hours are Monday – Friday (Noon to 5:00 p.m.) and Saturday (10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.). If those hours don’t work, just give us a call. There is usually someone here outside those hours. We also have added two new ladies to help with your customer service and finishing ideas. We welcome JoBeth Wisehart who has been stitching most of her life and we will post some of her finished projects so we can show you how many ideas she has for helping you down the final stretch of finishing your stitched project. Her work is exquisite and prices are reasonable. She is usually around on Saturdays, so stop by and say “hi!”
November 21, 2012 – Check out all the new books that have been added this week! They have been put into categories so you can find what you want with ease. If you know what the title is or a key word, just put it in search and it will come right up. We will be working this weekend to add additional items. Have a Happy Thanksgiving!
November 8, 2012 – We’ve been adding new products again! Check under Cross Stitch to see new “Permin Copenhagen” designs. Check under New Products to see the Kreinik pen kits that are brand new. There are also new cross stitch designs from Nora Corbett, Mirabilia; and Mill Hill Kits with new Debbie Mumm! Let us know if there’s something you’re looking for, but it hasn’t been posted yet! We do offer gift certificates if you don’t know what to buy for that special stitcher in your life.
July 26, 2012 – We are happy to see so many people visiting the website. If you see a listing for a type of product, but no products listed, they’re coming! It takes a lot of time to enter everything, but if there’s something you need, e-mail us as we have everything in stock and can mail it out quickly! Please contact us if you need anything! We want to be your one-stop shop for all your stitching supplies. We have just received in all of the Cosmo line (Floss and Seasons) … so if you need some, send us a note or give us a call!
