October 2009 Newsletter

Here is just a quick update for October. We are trying to be as "green" as we can be at Stitches... If you have an email address but are still getting a newsletter through the mail please help us by sending an email to and we will send the newsletter by email to save paper and postage. Thanks. If you lose the newsletter during the month you can also see it on our blog.
We are participating in the Scarecrow contest through the Chamber of Commerce. Come have a look at our display "Sew Spooky". We have lots of new fabrics and patterns and yarns. Come in for a cup of coffee, tea or cider anytime for a look, see. This is an exciting time to get your Christmas gifts underway. We now have all of our Stitching things together in our "Stitchery". These include counted cross stitch, floss, embroidery, Aida cloth, beading kits, iron-on transfers, etc. Coming in November will be our "Boutique" which will feature handmade gifts for sale.
