Before I came down to the shoppe today, I quickly ran over to my local needlework shop: CrossStitch and Frames Unlimited, in Hamilton NJ. [Mercer County]. And what sign did I see>>>'GOING OUT OF BUSINESS' sale. I have to say I am so sad to see this happen. Maybe I did not support them very much, but geez oh pete...they had so many threads, and miscellaneous pieces. I am so soo sew sew sorry they are unable to keep going. Please oh please...support your local shops...maybe a few pennies more will keep them going.
