A BIG thank you!!!

Guess what we celebrate on
April 1st?
Well, living in a house full of extremely funny men, we celebrate it with some kind of fun spirited prank...
But more importantly it is the
at this location
19 years ago!!!
We worried that it probably wasn't the best day for a grand opening, being as it is a day of practical jokes and hoaxes.  But here we are - 19 years later.
I was very pregnant when we opened the doors and Taylor was so small he ran around with a fisher price tool belt on and felt like he built the place himself.
We have been around so long that many of you don't know that we came here from a location just 4 miles away.  We have actually been in business 37 years!
Joy must have been just a child when she opened this place...

It's been awhile.....

Boy I wish that I understood how to use a computer!
Somehow as Taylor was working on a new website for the store
and I was trying to figure out instagram I froze up our blog!!!
Sooo...after help from the kids (they can always figure out my computer issues) we are up and posting again.
Sorry for the absence...I will try to leave well enough alone with the computer!

New Lizzie Kate...

A new kit
At Our House
Kit includes pattern and hand dyed threads.
You supply the fabric.

A storage idea....

One of our great customers came in yesterday with a really good idea.
She brought in her storage bag.
She made this to store her seasonal framed pieces.
It is made from an upholstery remnant, labeled with a hand stitched tag and has a fleece bag insert that she wraps around her picture before slipping it into the bag for storage.
 Great idea Denise!  Thanks for sharing it with us.

A great deal....

These have been around just too long.
We sold out of the original pattern for this cute pillow but we have 2 pillows left.
They are Trail Creek Farm pillows.
It is designed so that you can attach any stitchery on the front with 4 covered buttons.
The pillow area is 11 x 11.
The design you attach should finish up about 9 x 9.
Surely you must have something in your stash that would work!
The pillow was originally $40.00
but we priced these at
This is a picture of the front and back - the pillow includes the pillow form.
Hurry in if you would like one.
