Stitchery X-Press is celebrating 40 years of business in 2022. Cindy started selling Cross Stitch supplies to Marine officer wives In 1982 as a young newlywed to her pilot husband.
What started as a hobby and to bring in a few extra dollars has grown into a full time business over the years. Stitchery X-Press is now located in a large warehouse in Clearfield, Utah. We are 30 miles north of Salt Lake City near Antelope Island on the Great Salt Lake.
In 2016, the long-time owner of Fabric Flair fabric dyeing company asked Cindy to carry his fabrics. She decided to make a trip to Massachusetts, and her life changed. She now has over 2000 exclusive fabrics with Fabric Flair in 14 to 40 count. And, will be adding more and more of these exclusive fabrics to the website. In the meantime to see all of them join the Facebook group Cross Stitch buy and sell – Stitchery X-Press.
We are a full line Cross Stitch store carrying fabrics, floss, patterns and kits from all over the world.
In 2019 Cindy purchased the remaining inventory of Precious Moments Cross Stitch Patterns and thousands of patterns and kits from Cross My Heart, both leaders in the growth of the counted cross stitch industry.
With the vast knowledge of 45 years of stitching experience and her hands in the industry for so long, Cindy can assist in locating hard to find patterns – and she may just have them in deep storage. A true gold mine of cross stitch to be added to the site in the future.
Cindy has been selling online since the late 1980’s on online marketplaces. She opened one of the original cross stitch shops on eBay, where she became a member of the Voices of the Community, a small eBay mentor and focus group. This led to a volunteer position as a PayPal Ambassador, a select member focus group that spoke at events across the country about the benefits of online selling and buying.
Cindy decided to return to her roots of cross stitch and came full circle selling off all the collectibles and antiques she was selling on platforms to come back to her love of cross stitch. As Cindy says if we do not have we will try our best to get it for you.
