Announcing Camp Gottastitch 2017! Cross My Heart is pleased to announce our date and location for Camp Gottastitch 2017. November 3-5 we will once again be heading towards the Berlin Grande in Berlin, Ohio for our annual stitching weekend. Our theme this year is the Emerald City and we are having a blast planning things that you would find in a cross stitch shop in Oz. This also marks our 20th Camp—and lo and behold—the 20th anniversary is—you guessed it—the Emerald anniversary!
Camp price will include Friday night and Saturday night lodging, Friday night heavy hors d’oeuvres (i.e. enough to make a meal off of!), Saturday night meal, snacks during the day, unlimited water and iced tea, camp kits, prizes, entertainment and more! The hotel provides a free breakfast buffet and there are many places close by to eat (and shop). Double occupancy rate is $346, single occupancy (or you plus a non-stitching companion), $446. If you do not have a roommate but would like one, please let us know and we match you up with another camper.
Registration is now open! You may register by clicking the Camp Gottastitch button on our website, crossmyhearltd.com or by coming into the shop. A $50 non-refundable registration fee is due at the time of registration with the balance due by October 1. We will accept any payments at any time.
Oi. I know. And it’s going to get messier before it gets better. We’re trying out new themes and fussing with an online cart option and all sorts of planning and messing and cutting and pasting. and frogging. But – when it happens – it will be really, really good!

You all have been so very patient with our web geek as she tries to get everything up and loaded. We’ve added a calendar and are working diligently to bring a very basic shopping cart to fruition, one that we will add products to over time. Just a few more weeks – we promise!
Jennie and Carol have been away at the Great Lakes Region The Embroiderers’ Guild of America seminar, Sweet Stitch Chicago. Three lucky ladies, Kathy Rees, Denise Regent and Lori Schreiber each won a great gift bag full of stitchy stuff. We’re excited to be able to bring our shop on the road but will be even happier to return to you!
Due to a server move, the Cross My Heart website is undergoing a major re-design. We hope to have the new site up by the end of March 2017. In the meantime, keep up with us on facebook!
