1-19-update-NOW THAT THE HOLIDAYS ARE OVER, WE CAN ALL START OUR NEW PROJECTS FOR THE COMING YEAR. I HAVE HAD A VARIETY OF QUESTIONS REGARDING THE NEW CANVASES THAT I AM GOING TO PURCHASE-AND I AM MORE THAN WILL TO PURCHASE ANYTHING THAT YOU WOULD LIKE. WE HAVE A VERY LARGE NUMBER OF DESIGNERS THAT WE WORK WITH, IF YOU NEED SUGGESTIONS, LET ME KNOW, I WILL ASSIST. I AM NOT AT A POINT WHERE I AM PURCHASING A LARGE QUANTITY FOR A CUSTOMER TO CHOOSE FROM, BUT WILL WORK WITH YOU IN IDENTIFICATION FROM A DESIGNER, AND THEIR COLLECTION, BASED UPON YOUR NEEDS. 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.
AS SOON AS THIS CAN STABILIZE, MY SCHEDULE WILL BE THE FIRST THING TO RETURN TO NORMAL. AGAIN THANK YOU TO ALL FOR YOUR UNDERSTANDING, PATIENCE AND PRAYERS.
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.
12-18-HOLIDAY CHANGES; FIRST - I HOPE EVERYONE HAS A WONDERFUL HOLIDAY SEASON, WE HAVE SOME CHANGES HERE TO THE HOURS IN GENERAL-AS SOME OF YOU KNOW, MY PARENTS ARE BOTH HERE AND PART OF MY LIFE. 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 AND PROBABLY WILL WORK THIS WAY UNTIL THE END OF FEBRUARY. 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.
FEEL FREE TO CALL, AND I WILL DO MY BEST TO BE HERE FOR YOU, AND IF POSSIBLE WORK AROUND YOUR SCHEDULE.
HOURS THAT WILL RESUME HOPEFULLY IN MARCH-WILL BE AS FOLLOWS;
Monday - Saturday 11a to 4p
WED-WE ARE OFTEN HERE LATER -STITCHING GROUP-COME AND JOIN US-PLEASE CALL FIRST IF YOU ARE NEW-ESPECIALLY DURING THESE

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. For those of you who have ventured up to see us as we are in our various states of construction-confusion....well today has been the turning point. Our contractors have been wonderful, and fast, our only delays we due to the suppliers. Madeira Construction, I highly recommend them, they are wonderful, and they put this all together for me in basically 3-4 days. We are now unpacking and as you can tell hooking up cables and internet rapidly. Keeping on-line sales going throughout this process has been a challenge. We will shoot for a grand opening on the 13th, of this month, but as of this point we will open a trunk show box Thursday morning from Susan Roberts. This will be a very short trunk show, so if you are interested please do not hesitate on this at all!!
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 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. Stop in or call for a schedule of the next class.
We work with over five different needlepoint finishes, 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. We will link you to Designers for our hand painted canvases. Our fiber inventory exceeds 100 different varieties. With these two combinations we are sure you can find something from our shop virtual inventory.
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. Let us help you do it now!! 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.
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!!
We can also help you with stitches
on that 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!
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.
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 tine for the canvas, and we will also expect a deposit for the canvas as well. This deposit is non-refundable.
