Historic reproduction samplers are a specific focus with designs from the 1600's to the 1800's from The Essamplaire.

Special order requests are always welcome. Some special orders may require a downpayment.

Visit our Class page for a complete list of offerings for the coming months. Classes are in session on selected Monday Evenings from 6:00 pm until 9:00pm and Saturday mornings from 9:00 am until 12 noon and are generally limited to 8 students.

On the first Wednesday of each month, we hold a stitch-in beginning at 9:30 a.m. which lasts until 4:00p.m. Members of the Youngstown Chapter of the Embroiderers' Guild of America are part of this group and they encourage others to join them for a day of chatting, stitching and laughing.

We call our evening group, meeting the first Monday of each month, the "Monday Night Stitchers". "Stitchers" meet from 6:00 pm until 9:00. (Call the shop to be sure that we are meeting if the weather is inclement.)

Please call the shop if you are interested in booking a day for your group!
