Sizzlin’ Summer Sale!

It’s time to freakin’ RELAX and enjoy some quality cross-stitchin’, book-readin’, sun-drenchin’ downtime and take a break from ALL you do. Stitch something for yourself, just for the pure enjoyment of it. Why not?

To encourage your summer stitchin’, take 20% off all kits, PDFs and supplies–everything in our shop–through midnight Sunday, July 8th. Just use the sparkly promo code SPARKLERS at checkout!

Make like Betsy Ross and get to stitchin’!

p.s. If you got our enews, you’d be the first to know! Sign up and get COOL!!

Change in free font checkout

Our free PDF and PC Stitch patterns are now FREE WITH PURCHASE.

Unfortunately, Paypal no longer allows zero-total checkouts, so in order to download any of the free PDFs, you’ll have to make a purchase of something else on this site. There’s no minimum amount required, the least expensive choice is probably another of our $5 PDFs.

Sorry about the change, it was beyond my control!

To see which PDFs are free, use the SEARCH button at top and search for “free”!

You’re Doing It Wrong

Inspired by comments from haters across the internet and how Heather B. Armstrong (dooce.com) embraced the phrase and turned it around.

Also, while stitching this piece, I discovered it can be really fun to do it wrong! Take a break and mess this one up in your own signature way. Shut the haters up, then go on your way and continue with your usual doing-things-right!

New Designs!

I’m all caught up from the last two months and there are a lot of exciting things coming soon… plus I’ve also had some time to create some new designs! Keep an eye on the NEW page for updates. I’ll start with some PDFs and there will be new kits, too! Stay tuned. Here are the first two.

New Shipping System!

Good news and bad news.

The good news is that I’m in the middle of switching over to an entirely new way of shipping, which is like an old dog learning very exhausting new tricks. The new system will ultimately streamline orders so I can deliver quicker and it will also provide tracking numbers because so many of you have asked for them.

The bad news is that shipping right now is slower than usual (though it shouldn’t be for too long). Please bear with me, I will soon be up to speed. I’ve also been sick and have had a lot of other urgent issues vying for my attention while I try to improve the service you receive and enact several future projects, all at the same time.

In the meantime: If you need something to arrive by a certain date, PLEASE email me and let me know! I’m trying not to put an auto-reply in place, but be aware that it may take me 24-48 hours to reply. I assure you this won’t last forever–soon we’ll be shipping faster than ever (once I wrap my brain around it!)

THANK YOU for your patience and understanding during our growing pains!
