Hands Across The Sea, GiGi R and Bargain Bin Updated!

Happy New Year! I am not sure about you but 2018 flew by and I suspect 2019 wll be no different based on order activity this first week in January. Stitch and Frog relocated to more spacious digs late last year and things are almost back to normal wharever that is. It is quite an undertaking to relocate a shop plus keep running the online website so I appreciate your patience as we worked through the various tasks to get it all done.

Hands Across The Sea

This wonderful designer has released three new cross stitch charts recently and even if you do not think you will stitch them any time soon, I encourage to you add these designs to your stash as a collector's item. She produces the designs with colorful booklets and adds a nice bookmark to each. I have noticed that as more new releases come out, the designer is beginning to retire other designs to make room for the new ones. So, if you do collect sampler patterns, I would recommed purchasing now versus later. The three designs are Jane Bannister 1855, Harriet Hartland 1782, and the wonderful Mary Clayton. The designer has updated us that she will have four more new releases at the Nashville Wholesale Market in March!

GiGi R Designs

GiGi R released Mary Knowles the Finding of Moses in December. It is very popular and you will see why. A reproduction of a sampler from 1824 that GiGi R was able to purchase during an open air market. There are so many motifs to stitch and enjoy in this design.

Ink Circles

And in case you have not seen this new release, Dog's Declaration, do take a peek. I can't keep it in stock - just placed a third order that should arrive early this coming week.

Bargain Bin

I continue to add items to the Bargain Bin and most recently With Thy Needle and Thread charts. While we rarely discount these designs (at the designer's request), I simply need to make more room for more new stuff so check it out as you may just find the one you have been wanting to stitch. As with all items in the Bargain Bin, first come, first serve as once the deeper discounted items are sold out, we remove from the website and do not re-order at that price.

Postal rates are increasing January 27, 2019 and not sure if we will need to increase shipping or not. We have implemented for all orders over $50.00 that insurance is now included. We offer insurance during checkout for orders under $50.00 and I strongly encourage purchasing insurance. 

Finally, the annual wholesale Market in Nasvhille is coming up the first weekend in March so designers are busily getting ready for their new releases at the event so something we always look forward to seeing.

Thank you again for being our customer and supporting us! Marty
