When we took down the old Stitching the Night Away we moved over to a Facebook community because it seemed like an easy spam-free solution for the group. And it was working out fabulously until very recently when Facebook made some huge changes on how pages you’ve liked are delivered to your newsfeed. [Read more…]

We went up and down aisles and wrapped through big sections of different sorts, I even browsed the frame selection for awhile. We were at the point where we it seemed we had been down every aisle when I looked at my husband and said, “Did you see a needlework section?
