All About Pocket Full of Stitches...

     Pocket Full of Stitches came into being in September 1983,almost in the blink of an eye.  Rhea and Nancy, sisters-in-law, were talking about not being able to find the variety of needlework they wanted to do.  Rhea's kids were in school all day and Nancy, a newlywed had just moved back to Lubbock.  So, they decided to open a shop filled with the stitching that they loved.

     A TNNA market was being held in Dallas two weeks later.  They got very busy, found a store front (when a leasing agent asked about their prior experience - Rhea popped off, "We like to shop!"), secured a tax # and left for market.  And here they are 24 years later - still stitching and having fun.!




We often refer to Pocket Full of Stitches as PFOS.  This is a word!! At least here it is.  It is pronounced:           p-foss

Just in case you wondered!!
