12/22/2020-MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL, AND PLEASE STAY SAFE, and HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
GENERAL WEBSITE UPDATE,
Late 12/21, had a website issue, which caused us to loose all canvas items with the exception of some Harpers, Crewel and Prework. I was able to save the Harpers before the backup deadline, so they are still in the system. (THIS IS NOT AT ALLTHE COMPLETE LIST) but we saved what we could in the time frame that we had.
If you are looking for a canvas, the best thing to do, is just call.
The Harpers will be in first, but we were notified there will be a price increase as of the end of the year, so if there is one that you want, any order placed by the end of the year, will get the current year pricing. Now the downside of this, the pricing on the website is not accurate at all. With the website issue, the prices that you will see, may or may not be the price for that canvas, so again, my apologies, but I will fix this asap. Please call for the accurate price, and we will place your order for you.
This has been a difficult year for all, with COVID and changes relating to this, and affecting all our families. As many of you know, we lost my dad in March just before COVID restrictions hit. My mom is still with us, but not handling the loss of my dad very well.
The shop is open by appointment only, due to COVID. Hours are basically the same, but there are a lot of medical issues with my mom which can pull me away from that normal hours schedule.
With many of us having health issues, and the shop size, multiple customers here at the same time, makes social distancing really impossible. So I am always willing to assist anyone, but please call for any appointment first. We are usually booked at least 10 days to 2 weeks out in advance. When you call, I will ask what your needs might be as, I am getting a lot of people who are looking for things that I do not carry at this time, and I do not want to schedule appointments for people to waste their trip here. When you come in for an appointment I will check your temperature, and PO2 level, and you must have a mask.
If you are looking for a canvas, we have a list of designers on the front page of the site, check them out, and if you see something there, let me know and I will get pricing for you. We are not really open for browsing through our inventory, mainly due to COVID and space limitations. We are doing out best to load inventory on line as time permits. Goal of this is to make it easier and safer for everyone.
Finishing deadlines have come and gone for this year, so if you want something finished for Christmas 2020, we are way beyond that point. Unfortunately due to COVID, our finishers are very backed up and are not taking any more items in at this time for Christmas. Anything that is brought in will be sent out and finished on a first in basis after the Christmas rush is complete.We are focusing on the website, so if you are looking for anything in particular please do not hesitate to call, or email us. There is a contact link on the website for questions that is working very well. Phone issues do exist and are a problem, as I am getting a ton of spam call daily that fills up the voicemail so if you are leaving a voicemail that is not being returned please try the website contact to reach me.
Have a safe and wonderful Holiday and keep stitching to stay sane....
HAPPY NEW YEAR
The shop will be closed from January 29th, 2020 through February 20th, 2020. For online orders placed, they will be filled on the 20th of February. We will be receiving emails during this time, so any questions that you have, we are more than happy to assist.
For customers looking for Paternayan on the website we are moving it under the "Wool" category. That area will show the most up to date quantities. Upon our return, we will be adding Colonial to this category as well.

WE HAVE A VERY LARGE NUMBER OF DESIGNERS THAT WE WORK WITH, IF YOU NEED SUGGESTIONS, LET ME KNOW, I WILL ASSIST.

WE WILL ORDER THIS IN FOR YOU, AND THEN ASSIST IN FIBERS AND STITCH SELECTION SHOULD YOU NEED THIS.
AS MANY OF YOU HAVE BEEN SO KIND ASKING ABOUT BOTH OF MY PARENTS, I WILL GIVE YOU AN UPDATE, THEY ARE DOING OK- MY DAD IS IMPROVING, SPIRITS ARE GREAT, MY MOM IS ALSO DOING WELL, WITH THE CHALLENGES THAT SHE IS FACING GOING FORWARD. MOST IMPORTANTLY THEY ARE TOGETHER.
THIS MEANS FOR YOU- MY CUSTOMERS THAT THE SCHEDULE OF "APPOINTMENT BASIS" IS GOING TO CONTINUE-GOING FORWARD-, UNTIL SUCH TIME AS MY PARENTS ARE SETTLED INTO A DIFFERENT LIVING SITUATION THAT IS SAFE FOR BOTH. I HAVE HAD TO ASSIST FOR HOURS AT A TIME, IN A VARIETY OF DIFFERENT CAPACITIES, AND THIS HAS TURNED ANY REGULAR SCHEDULE UPSIDE DOWN.

ALSO, AS OF JANUARY 17TH, THE SHOP WILL BE CLOSED, AND RE-OPEN ON FEBRUARY 13TH. SHOULD YOU NEED ANYTHING FROM THE WEBSITE IN THAT TIME FRAME, AND IT IS IN STOCK, IT MAY BE SHIPPED AT THE END OF JANUARY. IF YOU CAN WAIT UNTIL AFTER THE 13TH OF FEBRUARY, THAT WOULD BE IDEAL.

MANY OF YOU WILL REMEMBER MY MOM BEING A PART OF THE SHOP FROM THE EARLY 2000'S. YOU MAY ALSO REMEMBER MY DAD AS WELL. HE HAS SUFFERED A STROKE. IT IS NOT CRITICAL, BUT IT IS SERIOUS, AND HAS AFFECTED ALL OF US IN THE FAMILY,- WE ARE WORKING WITH MY MOM, TO KEEP THE TWO OF THEM TOGETHER, BOTH IN THE HOSPITAL AND NOW THE REHAB FACILITY.
WHAT THIS MEANS TO YOU, IS THAT THE SHOP HOURS ARE REALLY ON AN APPOINTMENT BASIS. I HOPE THIS DOES NOT PRESENT A DIFFICULTY FOR ANY ONE, BUT IF YOU ARE PLANNING ON JUST DROPPING BY, PLEASE CALL FIRST, AS MOST DAYS, I AM IN AND OUT, AND THERE IS NOT A REAL SET SCHEDULE, OF HOURS THAT I AM HERE ANY GIVEN DAY.

Dawn and Staff
As many of you know we have been located in beautiful Madeira, for the last 40 years.. As of MONDAY JANUARY 30TH 2017, WE WILL BE MOVING TO THE FOLLOWING NEW ADDRESS; 7577 CENTRAL PARKE BLVD. SUITE 324-326 & 328 MASON OHIO 45040
This new location is off of Cedar Village Dr, which is off of Mason Montgomery Rd. If you need directions from any area in the tri-state, feel free to call, we will assist you with directions.
Our goal is to provide you with the friendly service that will help you make your needlepoint project perfect. We also pride ourselves in having the largest selection of fibers and beautiful canvases in the tri-state area.
In addition, A Stitch Above offers classes, in both a group format as well as one-on-one. We are more than willing to work our teaching time around your busy schedule, whether it is day or evening. Our classes run all year, and we try to schedule events that will help you have your project completed close to the appropriate holiday.
We work with over five different needlepoint finishers, and three different belt finishers, all who are eager to provide you with the highest quality finishing at the best possible pricing. We are willing to have any customer provide their own fabric or custom cording. Our finishers are true professionals, who are in the business of finishing, (and not just a side business). They have no problem working with the highest quality fabrics, cordings and trims.
Our list of Designers and fibers is extensive. The links to Designers for our hand painted canvases will give you their websites, please record the item number and let me know, and I will get you a price as soon as possible. Out fiber inventory exceeds 100 different varieties. With these two combinations we hope you can find something from our shop virtual inventory. Special orders will require a deposit, and waiting times will be from 1 week if the items is in stock to 4-5 months if the is not in stock and needs to be painted for your order.
We can also custom paint a canvas or belt for you. Currently we can work with three different painters for this process. They can paint a picture of you favorite pet, you child, or just a saying that you have been wanting to stitch for years and just haven't found the right time to put it on canvas. Maybe a few spring flowers around your family crest, or initial?? We can do anything that your imagination can dream up. Let us paint it for you. Again, deposit is required, and we will consult with our painters in advance on time frames for completion.
Once you have chosen your canvas, we specialize in helping you with the right fiber for your canvas. We listen to your desires and can makes suggestions on fibers
to help make that canvas beautiful. There are always new fibers on the market that are wonderful to stitch with, why not let us show you how to use them. Our customers love what we suggest!!
(due to COVID- this is not a service available without an appointment-please call)
We can also help you with stitches
on your canvas choice, or maybe it has just been a while since that last project and you need a little refresher. We are here to help you. We want you to have fun with your project, and enjoy Needlepoint!
(due to COVID- this is not a service available without an appointment-please call)
Our hours are Monday through Saturday 11 am to 4pm. And please remember we understand your working schedule
and are more than willing to stay late, any day just call and let us know. (due to COVID- these hours can vary-please call for an appointment-please call)
Now a little about how the canvas and fiber purchases work on our site. When you order a canvas, if the canvas is in stock, it will be shipped immediately from the shop. However, we cannot possibly stock the thousands of items our designers have available. On our site you will see a link to the designer of you choice, and we request that you then contact us with that choice so that we can offer you a price and place the order for you. We will also at the time of the order, provide you with the expected delivery time for the canvas, and we will also expect a deposit for the canvas as well. This deposit is non-refundable.
Come and visit us at 7577 Central Parke Blvd. Suite 326 Mason Ohio 45040
