 Just in from Stacy Nash Primitives are several new pinkeep patterns.  I know some of  my customers have had their fill of pinkeeps, but I just love them.  They are usually a quick stitch and an easy finish (but I just need to start finishing those I have completed).  They can be used as bowl fillers or just sit anywhere...table tops, bookcases.  Above is Ann's Sampler Pinkeeps, followed by Silent Night Pinkeep, Merry Christmas Pinkeep (I don't care that much for alphabets, but I will be doing this one) and Mary's Pinkeep.  All available now at Just Cross Stitch in Lederach.

Sue Hillis has taken our brown sleds  and created a more traditional ornament.  She's not only painted them, but as you can see, she's padded the design, now stitched on fabric as opposed to perforated paper, and added trims, ribbons, bows and buttons.  Christmas Ride and Christmas Sweets are available with 2 pages of very detailed instructions on painting and templates for cutting and trimming the sleds.

After 20 years in business, I've collected many cross stitch charts here at Just Cross Stitch and it's time some of them go and find new homes.

So, from Wednesday November 9 thru Saturday November 12, we will be having a Fall Cleaning Sale.  The entire shop will be discounted 20% and selected charts will be offered at 50% and 75% discounts.

Stop by and start your holiday shopping for those stitching friends and don't forget yourself.

I'm sure you'll be able to find a chart or two at a discounted price.

2016 Christmas Finishing Deadline

Get stitching and finish up those projects you want for Christmas this year.  The finishing deadline for framing and sewing is Saturday November 26. If we get your piece by this date, we will guarantee it to be finished by the week before Christmas at the latest.


There have been a lot of cute charts out recently and these are just a few new to the shop

Blackberry Lane brings us Moonlight Haunting.  The overdyed fabric from Picture this Plus is just perfect for this piece.

Erica Michaels has added the Nativity Berry and the Honey Berry to her strawberry collection.

Hinzeit has several new small ones out.  Let It Snow, Merry Noel, Black Jack ad Frequent Flyer (a witch).

Broom Rides comes from Homespun Elegance.

Christmas Time from Needledwork Press is the 3rd in a series of Time to Stitch.

Scattered Seed Samplers brings us a cute pincushion A Stitch in Time.  I read the instructions and the entire piece can be constructed by hand without a sewing maching.

Stacy Nash has several new ones and this is House on Pumpkin Hill.  She also has Good Stitching Witch, Redbud Cottage, Be Kind & True and Boxwood Manor.

Dark Shadows and Creature Feature are from Sue Hill Designs.
