Hi, stitching friends!
A bit about myself. I live in Hobart with my husband and
our five cats. We love to hike and visit the UP of Michigan regularly. Up until
September I worked for an IT department at a university in Chicago. I’ve been
stitching (amongst other crafty endeavors) since I was a kid!
I’m so excited to be on this side of the counter providing everyone with the items they need to make beautiful things. I know I have big shoes to fill, but I am up for the challenge!
Hope to see you soon and happy stitching!

Once again, I need to apologize for the delay in writing to you! The sale of the shop is not final but is still progressing, just not as quickly as we thought it would. In the meantime, come in and meet Sarah (almost new owner) and see all of the wonderful Online Expo items that she ordered for you. There are so many great projects!! If you want a preview or cannot visit in person, just go to our website to see them. Click on “Our Catalog” or “What’s New” at www.houseofstitches.com. There are beginner ornaments that are stitched on pierced wood, Autumn/Halloween projects galore, Colorful Cats and even designs that are displayed on rolling pins! In case you missed them, we have the 2022 Just Cross Stitch Christmas Ornament Magazine and Halloween Magazine and the 2022 Wee Santa and Prairie Schooler Santa!
And while we are thinking about Christmas and holiday stitching, let me urge you to have your projects in by Halloween. Frames are sometimes taking longer to arrive than they did in the past. We don’t want anyone to be disappointed!
As always, we are grateful for your continued support!

More new designs are headed your way! Just go to www.houseofstitches.com and click on What’s
New. We added new things on the14th and more will be posted on Monday, the 29th.
One of the most exciting additions is the 2022 Just Cross Stitch Ornaments
Magazine! As usual it is filled with
great ornaments, finishing ideas and recipes.
The biggest news that I have for you is that House of
Stitches will have a new owner on September 1!
(I will let her introduce herself in the next newsletter.) After 35 years, it is time for me to spend
more time stitching, baking, spending time with my family and organizing my
stitching room. I know you will enjoy having
an energetic and enthusiastic person supplying your stitching and framing
needs. She has jumped right in with
ordering from the online Needlework Expo! I hope you will give her the loyalty and
support that I have enjoyed from you. It
has been a pleasure to make so many friends and “supply your habit”!

I hope you are having a great summer (or winter if you are in the southern hemisphere)! It is going to be very hot and humid here for the rest of the week. So, as always, it is great stitching weather.
We have more new charts to tempt you! They are arriving nearly every day! Go to www.houseofstitches.com and click on What’s New (www.houseofstitches.com/whatsnew.cfm) or click on Catalog and type Aug22a. There are projects with a summer theme, Christmas designs, the latest Little House Needleworks and Nutcracker Village installments. I just realized that I forgot to include a picture of the summer issue of the Stoney Creek Magazine. If you would like a copy, put a note in the customer comments of the online order form.
It has been fun to see so many of our distant friends this summer. Plan to stop in if your vacation travels pass through our area. You can stretch your legs and enhance your stash at the same time!
