We have an on-line catalog of many of the items we carry in our brick & mortar shop, but really only a fraction of them as it would impossible to list everything. You'll find our fabric, threads, embellishments, accessories and gift items in the on-line catalog. We don't plan to ever add the entire store inventory to it. We do not have a real-time inventory system. With over 130 threads alone it would simply take to much time to ring up a customer, whether they were in our shop or we are mailing an order. Think of how much fun it would be to stand behind a customer buying 120 colors of DMC floss and us having to scan every single skein and you get the idea.

If you wish to order something not currently in the on-line catalog you can use the form at the bottom of this page, use our Manual Order form, put that information in the "Special Instructions" when you checkout, or give us a call. We try to keep a good portion of these items in stock, although with the amount of product we carry it's impossible to have everything in stock all the time.

Prices in the online catalog are subject to change and we reserve the right to charge the new price so your order total may be different from the online receipt. We try to keep the site as up-to-date as we can but that's not always possible. Often when we re-order items prices have gone up and we don't know that in advance. If that is not acceptable to you, please note that in the Special Instructions or give us a call to confirm a specific price.

The shopping cart is secure (128bit SSL) and you can send us your credit card information securely over the Internet. If you've not used our on-line catalog before we suggest you read our Ordering Information page, which has details about using the cart, estimated shipping costs, etc.

Selecting one of the following items or categories will allow you to order from the on-line catalog. If you want the search the website for something like a thread number, use the Search feature on the left of this page. Several catalog items (fabric, books, embellishments and designers) will not show up in that search because they are in their on searchable databases. Click on the appropriate link to search those types of items.

If you're not sure what the stitcher in your life would like we offer Gift Cards in any amount. Please visit our Gift Cards page to purchase, add value to an existing card or register a Gift Card.

Do you need to provide us with new payment information but don't need to place an order? Click the Update button below and it will add an empty item to your cart so you can checkout with having to make a purchase. Then click on the Checkout Now button to proceed. Use the form "Update Payment Information On File" when you check out. If you need to change your shipping information as well, use one of the regular Credit Card forms when you check out.

                        Merchant MallIf we don't have a cross-stitch designer listed that you're looking for, be sure to use our Hoffman Merchant Mall pages.
