The Stitching Bee has been up and running for 19 years. I could not have done it with out the support of my family, friends and stitchers. Many thanks for all you have done.
The future of The Bee!
The cross stitch business is changing. I have been outspoken on this subject because I feel it may cause my business to close. Designers and distributors are doing Exclusive clubs and kits which are not available to every shop. That means I can not get the kit for myself or my stitchers. This is driving my customer's to other shops. And we are not talking a $8 dollar patterns, we are talking a $50 kit. Will The Bee be able to survive?
Wouldn't it be nice if the cross stitch business would be fair? I so much would like to meet the needs of my stitchers. I would like to stay in business. I love the creativity of cross stitching and the wonderful projects people stitch. Hopefully, things will change but we don't know the future of cross stitching or The Bee.

Just want to shout out to all the wonderful people giving Stitch shops information out on Facebook! It is so wonderful and much appreciated! I haven't posted in a long time because I find social media changing so fast. I have been busy posting on The Stitching Bee Facebook page so like us. Please support your local shop. It is getting very difficult to stay in business! I have enjoyed my 18 years of business and would like to continue. Stop in at The Stitching Bee and see the wonderful models we have up! Or bring your stitch and stitch for a while!
