About Us

Store History:
After several years as a stay-at-home mother and a seamstress, Eva Donnelly decided to open her own store. A few months later, after location searching, renovation, and supply order, A Stitch In Time made its grand opening in April of 2002 in the PT Barnum Square in downtown Bethel. At first, only needlepoint and cross stitch supplies were sold. However, the following year knitting yarns and crocheting supplies were brought in by popular demand.

In the spring of 2005, A Stitch In Time had its second grand opening after moving down the road from PT Barnum Square to Grosso’s Corner. In the summer of 2006, A Stitch In Time stopped carrying counted cross stitch supplies.

In 2017, the store changed locations again and is currently located at 10 Stony Hill Road in Bethel.

In 2019, Eva decided to retire and ownership of the store transferred to Judy Gowell. We are looking forward to the coming new year under Judy's leadership!

It is very exciting when we become a headline in the local newspapers! In September 2005, the Bethel News-Times featured us in an article. Click on the image on the left to read!

In December 2007, A Stitch In Time was featured on the America’s Knitting website. Below is an excerpt from the article:

“Bethel is a town in Fairfield County, Connecticut, about sixty miles from New York City and it is home to Cannondale bicycles, Duracell batteries, Meg Ryan, PT Barnum and a yarn shop called A Stitch In Time! Eva Donnelly is the owner and she has lived in Bethel for 30 years and owned the store for many years…”

We continue to grow by bringing in all the newest yarns and canvas we can find. If we do not have what you are looking for, we will help you find it or order it for you!
