Welcome to our new Virtual Store
Our physical location is in Mason Ohio (approximately 20 miles north of downtown Cincinnati) If you need directions, we will provide those to you below, and feel free to call us at the shop and we can direct you to us from anywhere in the city.
As many of you know, our hours have changed over the past year, typically they are 11-4 Monday thru Saturday. In addition, I also take care of my 91 yr. parents. As my dad suffered a stroke almost a yr ago- (12/2018) this has brought about a variety of challenges that many of you are aware. As a result, the hours are somewhat tentative, as I am frequently called away for emergencies, that arise. As many of you also remember this began to occur while the shop was still in Madeira, and was one of the major reasons for the move, and downsize to this location. My request to accommodate my customers in the best way possible is to please contact me in advance of stopping by the shop. I always love to have customers drop in, but I would feel bad to have any customer drop by just to find that I am not here. Phone is 513-271-2712, and if I know you are on your way, I can let you know my schedule, or make arrangements to be here for you.
Fibers on the website We will focus on growing a large fiber stock which will continue to be enhanced over time. If there is a fiber that you have been looking for check with us, we may have in on our plan to stock, list - or we may add to that list for you.. With all special orders we will require a deposit that is non refundable.
Also as you are looking at the fibers on the site, the pics will show the fiber, and if there is a price not showing below that individual color, that is the quick way to indicate that the color is out of stock. If that is the color you want, please let me know, and if it is not on order, I am more than happy to order for you, and ship to you as soon as it arrives.
Paternayan update; Also as many of you are aware, the company that has been producing Paternayan over the last 8-10 years, is out of production. Several months ago, they notified us that they were looking for either a buyer or partner. Since that time their website has also been taken down. I do still have a huge inventory of the product and it is going fast. So if you have any desire for the product, please contact me, I will probably not be putting this on the website, as it will most likely be going too fast to put on the site. Replacement- is Colonial Persian; Their product has been in production for years and is almost identical as the Paternayan, with the same number range. They do not have extensive color range as Paternayan, and there have been some complaints about the whites. This product will be placed on the website, and any questions that you have regarding this product, please feel free to contact me directly. You can also go directly to Colonial Needle, then threads, then Colonial Persian to see the color range. As of this point, they are not offering a printed color card. I will update this information here as it is available.
Canvases-on the website- We will sell Harper's from the site-as well as canvases that are part of our current stock.
In regards to Harper's- we show the entire line- but due to the # that we sell we do not list what is in stock on the website. What is important for you to know - When you order, we may have the canvas in stock, and if we do, it will be shipped immediately. (you will receive confirmation of your order)-. If it is not in stock it will be ordered immediately, from the vendor. When the order is placed we will receive some idea as to the time frame on your delivery. With the Harper's this time frame can be narrowed if they have one in their stock. If they do not and one must be painted, then your delay may be extended out to approx. 6 weeks.
With all orders we will take a deposit which is non refundable. We will also communicate with you as to the status of your order as often as you wish, via email or phone, please just let us know what makes you feel most comfortable.
Trunk of Treasures Canvases on the Website-these will be loaded into categories by type of item, (ie. cross stitch, then into categories such as with or without fibers, started or not, completed, etc.

The next light is Cedar Village Dr, here you will turn left, and you will immediately see 2 3-story buildings on the right that are red brick with the CMC logo. Our building is the one closest to the lake, and the 1st one as you turn into the parking lot, or the one to your right.
