About Pocket Full of Stitches...
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.
market was being held in Dallas two weeks later. They got very busy, found a store

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
Just in case you wondered!!
