Hi Fellow Stitchers!      

      First .. some very sad news.  LouAnn passed away this past Monday.  She has just started chemo but .. her heart just wasn't pumping enough oxygenated blood and .. gave out.  We closed the shop late afternoon on Thursday to attend the viewing. This was so sudden .. we weren't expecting that to happen. Our most sincere condolences to her family.

    And .. am very sorry there was no newsletter last Sunday .. my newsletter program just wouldn't connect and send. I'm blaming it on Mercury still being in retrograde .. I have the worst time with electronics during that.  (Don't know about Mercury Retrograde ... google it ... it's when I try to crawl under blankets and read 'real books' so my electronic Kindle doesn't die too!)

COMING MARCH 6th thru 8th, the NEEDLEWORK EXPO Virtual Market!!

   We're STILL adding the "New To Come" at the Needlework Expo to our catalog ... and would "like your preorders" by March 5th ....  IF you want to SEARCH EASILY on my catalog, just type in NEEDLEWORK EXPO in the Keyword Search Box at https://www.stitchesnthings.com/search.cfm and those items I have posted will immediately show up!    And again ... let us know if you see something you want!!


 Remember our current REVISED SHOP HOURS


OPEN Tuesday thru Saturday 10am-5pm EST

If coming from a distance ... Please Call First .... just in case one of us gets sick and can't make it in

     OK .. I think that's pretty much it.   Haven't stitched at all in nearly two weeks as we've been so swamped in the shop with just the two of us ... and I've been having to bring my reordering home with me ... and Debbie and I are adding what we get to the NEEDLEWORK EXPO Previews as quickly as we can (in our spare time at home).  Again, this is a Virtual Shop Owners Market only ..... designed to replace the cancelled-due-to-COVID Nashville Needlework Market -- and I'll be shopping like the crazed person I am -- Just For You ..... so let me know exactly what you want so I can order in the amount needed!!!!

        So .. Until next week's newsletter update ..... . STITCH HAPPY ...
