When I moved my store from Ohio to Virginia, I did not add the needlework kits, etc. to my web site. I am sorting through the boxes and posting those that are still useable. These items are all at least 25 years old and have been in storage most of that time. They would be an inexpensive way to learn needlepoint, cross stitch, or various types of embroidery.

Keep checking back, as we will be adding things to the web site regularly.

We have re-enabled shipping options to Europe, the United Kingdom, Australia and New Zealand.

All packages to destinations outside the U.S. will ship using a service called Global Post. This is a service where I send packages to a collection point in the US, then they are bundled and shipped to other countries by Global Post for customs clearance. Once customs are cleared, the local post office delivers your package.

I do not collect any taxes (VAT) or customs duties owed on international shipments. You may need to pay these before your package will be delivered.
