The History of Our Store
The store is owned by Eva Donnelly. The store staff includes Leslie, Lisa, and Sue. The webmaster is Jessie.
After several years as a stay-at-home mother and a seamstress, Eva decided to open her own store. A few months later, after location searching, renovation, and supply order, A Stich In Time made its grand opening in April of 2002. At first, only needlepoint and cross stitch supplies were sold. However, the following year knitting yarns and crocheting supplies were brought in by popular demand. In the spring of 2005, A Stitch In Time had its second grand opening after moving down the road from PT Barnum Square to Grosso's Corner. In the summer of 2006, A Stitch In Time stopped carrying counted cross stitch supplies.
