THE CROSS STITCHER'S HAVEN
Welcome to my corner of
the web. My name is Mary K and cross Stitching has been one of my favorite things in the world to do for the
past 20 years and a great stress reliever. My favorite designers are Marilyn Leavitte
Imblum and Nora Corbett. I also like Marty Bell and Just Nan. I've just discovered
needlerolls. I've collected alot of interesting information on stitching from the Web and a
lot of places to shop or learn new things and hope you'll find it interesting too. So sit
back, smile and click and let's work on enhancing our Stash.
Okay let's start by
working on our Stash first. Here is a list of some really great CROSS STITCH SHOPS
ON THE WEB
A really wonderful place to
shop. Lois is great. Fast courteous service and she has needlerolls. If you don't have a
Local LNS to shop at you can't go wrong shopping here.
What can I say about these ladies, fast friendly service and if you haven't seen
their catalog you just don't know what you are missing.
The Victoria Sampler
I just love this
place. So many beautiful things to stitch and they have classes too. Yes you can do them
cyber style. I haven't tried any yet but I hear they are a blast and turn out beautifully.
This one always have a lot of specials going on and has that lovely hand
dyed linen I love. They also have a great idea for getting all you UnFinished Objects done.
I've tried it and I love it.
This is were your local LNS orders alot of their stuff from. The have a complete listing of shops that carry their stuff. You can go there to see what's new and them go to you LNS to buy it.
Okay now we have the
stash taken care of now let's work on were you can find other people doing the same
things you are as well has places you can go to post questions and tips you may
Mirabilia and Lavender and Lace
This a must go to board if you do LL or Mirabella. I have found many answers to questions I have when I ask them there. Also Marilyn and Nora post there from time to time
Paula Vaughn Fans
I haven't really done any Paula Vaughn but have several in my Stash. My friends tell me this is the place to go to get tips and meet other PV fans.

A good place to shop and a free drawing each month as well as a bulletin board.
