The Starlight Stitchery began its life in July 2018, when owners Amanda Turk and Pamela Shigeoka purchased Friendship Crossing LLC, a counted cross stitch shop that had been in business in downtown Corvallis, Oregon, since 1988. In March of 2020, we transitioned to being an online only shop that provides delivery in Corvallis and shipping all over the world.
This is an anti-racist cross stitch shop. We support BIPOC along with the LGBTQIA+ community and consider ourselves feminists. We are committed to being open to all and do not allow or condone discrimination of any kind. This shop will never carry patterns that include racist, sexist, or homophobic symbols or text. We strive to purchase goods only from businesses and individuals that share our values.
Amanda and Pamela are both crafters who enjoy cross stitch and embroidery along with knitting and crochet. Amanda is trained as a librarian, and Pamela has an advanced degree in English literature. Both live in Corvallis.
