Exciting new cross stitch charts from Prairie Grove Peddler. Remember, when your store purchases $100 at retail in cross stitch patterns, we offer a substantial freight allowance on your entire shipment! Keep on Stitching! Beth
One of my favorite holidays is the 4th of July. It's summer, it's colorful, and it celebrates our freedoms in the USA. And I'm a big fireworks fan, too (the ones at the park, not in my neighborhood). It's also a good time to stitch, so get out those projects, relax out on the deck or backyard with a big glass of iced tea and cross those X's to your heart's content. Lots of great patriotic patterns are available and your customers will enjoy stitching them all summer long. Happy Stitching! Beth
Yarn Tree has redesigned the Large Plastic Floss Key to include a tab that will hold the floss number band off your skein of DMC or Anchor floss. Or if you are organizing another type of thread, you may use a sticker and write your number on the sticker which is included in the pack. Large Floss Keys (or holders) are packaged in 50's, 100's, or a bulk package of 1000. Keep on Stitching! Beth
This is the perfect season to cross stitch (I will say that about any season!). But if you don't know how, our Learn to Cross Stitch in 5 Minutes video is a good way to start. Another great way is to contact your local needlework store and ask them to teach you. It doesn't take long to learn to cross stitch and the results will turn out well, even for a beginner. Yes, anyone can learn to cross stitch! Better yet, counted cross stitch relieves stress and you end up with wonderful gifts or decor for your home. Happy Stitching! Beth
Thank you to the retail needlework stores for their support. We've had a great year and hope that you have as well. Thank you also to the cross stitchers who support their LNS! We will celebrate the holidays with our families from Dec 24th until Jan 4th, reopening to serve you January 5th. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! Keep on Stitching!! Beth
The fall stitching season has been a busy one for us! Hope you will get lots of time to stitch while you are enjoying your holiday get-togethers with family and friends. The new red polka dot Christmas Stocking from Charles Craft is quick to stitch and you can still get it done in time for Santa. For other stockings and Christmas decorations to stitch, click here.
With our new 2009 Yarn Tree catalog reaching the stores and fall weather heading into winter, it is time for all stitchers to get started on their Christmas gifts! Hopefully you have already started planning and stitching, but if not, there is still time. Head to your local needlework shop. They will be delighted to get you going on one project or 12. They can even teach you to cross stitch if you don't know how. A gift from your hands is one that will touch the heart (and is easy on the budget). Keep on Stitching! Beth
