Hi Fellow Stitchers!        

     With apologies to Lewis Carroll ....

The time has come,' the Walrus said,
       To talk of many things:
Of shoes — and ships — and sealing-wax —

Of the closing of
Stitches N Things

    It has been 2 years since I began negotiations to sell my business.  I've been approached by more than 8 prospective buyers ... 4 of them who were actually serious. After negotiations have failed, I have had to make the decision to close Stitches N Things and my Internet business. This was the hardest choice that I have ever had to make.  There has been a lot of tears involved.  And this is the hardest newsletter I've ever had to write.

     Liquidation of shop inventory will begin immediately -- ALL IN STOCK merchandise will be 25% OFF.  We will NO longer be restocking items OR taking special orders.  Your previously ordered items will not be discounted.   USE COUPON:  CLOSING   to see the discount applied

     The 25% Discount WILL ALSO APPLY to items on our SALE page and on our SNT CLASSICS page ... these items are already discounted, but you WILL receive the 25% off on these items as well! 

   USE COUPON:  CLOSING to see the discount applied


     We are obviously filling Online Orders, but will ONLY fill those items that are actually "In Stock".  We have been working this month on trying to update what is actually 'in stock', but have not been able to get to everything .. yet.  It's still a work in progress with our removing what we do not have in the shop and putting in-stock quantities on everything.   Please note, even though something is shown on the web site, it is not necessarily in stock. We ARE trying to get it all listed!!!

    If you have a Gift Certificate, you need to use it as soon as possible. The last day the shop will be open is Friday March 31, 2023.

    If you are on AUTO SHIPS for charts, we will continue to send those to you as they are released in February AND in March -- no discount will be applied to Auto Ships.

     We ARE attending the Nashville Needlework Market Trade Show the 1st weekend in March.   After 30 1/2 years of being in this industry, I NEED to see everyone - designers and shop owner friends - one last time.

     And .. because you ARE my friends, the one last thing I can do for you is letting you get the newest of the new!  Since I will not be purchasing items for the shop and I will be purchasing NEW NASHVILLE RELEASES ONLY FOR YOU, we will be doing things a bit differently.   Your NASHVILL Preorders MUST Be PREPAID.    Let your friends know.  That way, as soon as we come back, we'll be able to pack your orders right up and get them off in the mail to you!  And ... as a final gift to you for your support of  my shop over these past 30 1/2 years ... your Nashville Orders will be Mailed To You At No Charge!!!


So ... Watch For Nashville Advance Item Notifications added to our What's New Page as we begin to get them ... or search using keyword:  Nashville

(there's hardly anything there yet ... but ... they will be coming!!!)

How do you get these you ask?  It's so easy .. when you place an order during the month of January/February, all of that months freebies will be automatically included with your order.  When you come into the shop, simply ask us for the 'Freebies Of The Month'.   Or, you can send us a SASE (legal sized, 1/8" x 9 1/2" self-addressed stamped envelope) and we'll mail them right off to you!




    So .. I guess that's that.  Please let your friends know of our closing.  I can't reach everyone myself. 

    I don't think there will be "weekly" newsletters from this point on, but I WILL be in touch!   And above all else ... STITCH HAPPY ...
