Q. How long have you been a stitcher & how did you first learn about stitching?
A. I started embroidering when I was about 10, I learned to crochet at 13 & knit at 16. When I got married I did printed cross stitch. Then I found counted cross stitch and never looked back. In 1985 I helped start a local EGA chapter and took all the classes I could to learn all the different techniques.
Q. How long have you been in business?
A. I became involved in a partnership in 1992. After about 1 1/2 years the partnership dissolved (very messy) and I started on my own.
A. I offer counted cross stitch, needlepoint, and yarns for knitting and crochet. I also do custom framing and finishing.
Q. Who are some of your personal favorite designers?
A. Lizzie Kate (I love adding buttons to the designs!), SamSarah Design Studio, Amy Brueken Designs, Little House Designs, and Raise the Roof.
Q. What types of events do you offer at your store?
A. I do a pajama party twice a year - after the hotel shows. I feed everyone dinner, we do a class, and then I open my suitcases with all the new products. I also have a stitch/knit night every Tuesday evening and Friday afternoon. We also observe World Wide Knit in Public Day and we have done a yarn bombing.
Q. Besides stitching and running your business, what are a few things you enjoy in your free time?
A. What free time? I stitch and knit all the models for the shop so there is not a lot of free time, but I also do some bookkeeping on the side and I do the books for a restaurant, a lottery store, and a gentlemen's club.
Q. What are your three favorite movies?
