All Because of Counted Cross Stitch

As this story begins, my husband took a job in Columbia, Maryland and I was not a happy camper, to say the least. So we bought a house in Marriottsville, Maryland and I set out feeling my way around the area. What I found was an area of the country that offered a wide variety of things to keep me entertained and I enjoyed myself very much.

Of all the little cities I visited, I found this quaint little Counted Cross Stitch Shop in Ellicott City and when I stepped inside, I discovered I was at home. The owner was a charming lady from the United Kingdom and she taught me how to do counted cross stitch without a hoop. Because of this, I was able to cross stitch quicker and of course I was buying more patterns. So to make a long story short, I was paying all kinds of money to have my cross stitch pieces framed.

When my husband's company went out of business, we returned home and I decided to go to school to learn how to be a picture framer. I learned all kinds of things from that class but the first thing I learned was, the cost to have a store front business. So my husband helped me to learn how to make my frames and now I make frames for other cross stitchers.

After being on the craft show circuit for over 12 years, I made my way to the internet and a few years later, I found Etsy.

If you live in an apartment, urban neighborhood or a high traffic area and there is not a secure place to leave your package, You Must Make Arrangements for the secure delivery of your package to another secure address. If you are working outside the home, have it delivered to your work address. If you have a family member, friend or neighbor who is available to receive the package, all you need to do is to give me their address. Once the United States Postal Service delivers the package to the address you provided, I will not be responsible for the Theft of Your Package.

Although, you will want someone, who is an adult you trust, to sign for this package.

When your package ships, you will be given a Expected Delivery Date and a Tracking Number when I ship your package. You can check the tracking number everyday, it will let you know where the package is each step of the way of the delivery process. On the last day, it will say Out For Delivery. This Is Important, that you or someone you trust is available to receive the package on that day. Again, if you work outside the home, have the package delivered to your place of business. Leave the alternative address in the Message To Seller area of the shopping cart.
