Stitchery X-Press founded in 1982


I started selling cross stitch patterns to other Marine Officer’s wives at our base in California in 1982 and the business has traveled with my husband’s airline pilot career. We now run our business from our warehouse in Layton, Utah.

We have sources to find out of print books and may even have the one you are looking for in our warehouse that we have not gotten listed on the site yet so please contact us if you have a request.

I have the needlework knowledge base and Jim gets the packages to you. We are happy to help you with any requests for patterns or kits you may not be able to find.

I am also a stitcher and when I have time I will be adding educational videos and posts to help those that are starting out. I am also happy to take requests of what you want me to write about whether it be technique, fabrics, floss, etc.

I will also have a blog about Meet the Designer and you will be able to meet designers and get to know them a bit better.

I am the mother of two boys, Steven age 28 and Thomas age 14 and have been married for 34 years. Yep, Thomas came right before our 20th anniversary. It put a new meaning on retirement. Steven and his wife Cierra help out when needed and Steven is the handyman around the shop when there are things I just can’t get done. Thomas has been working as our shipping manager since he was 3.

I have owned stores in Parker, Colorado and Layton, Utah. I was also the manager of a large needlework store in Watchung, NJ for a number of years and still sold mail order to those customers I had from our military life.

Being in the needlework industry for well over 30 years means we have a lot of out of print and hard to find books. We also own a cross stitch store on eBay. We have over 1500 items in our eBay store, where we have over 28,000 positive customer responses. And don’t forget we ship worldwide!

We decided to open this store to sell the 1,000′s of patterns we have and help you find great deals on current and out of print patterns. We will be adding new patterns that are the hottest sellers weekly. We want our buyers to have a one-stop shopping experience.

Please don’t hesitate to call and ask any questions you may have.
