Ms. Murphy first launched a mail-order cross stitch business to supplement her family’s funds and found, due to its success, she could open a brick-and-mortar business, Ye Olde Cross Stitchery. In addition to creating handmade crafts, she sells supplies for other creators. When she started her business, she was working out of her home, but soon her home became overrun with products and her family converted a building behind their home into a shop. Since 1984, Ms. Murphy has delivered on providing high-quality cross stitch, needlepoint, embroidery, books, charts and more. Furthermore, Ms. Murphy has been a bookkeeper for Mercury Press Printing since 1980.

During the Covid-19 pandemic, Ms. Murphy pivoted her business model to encounter the various obstacles at hand. Her business acumen is supported by being supported by a family filled with business owners. In five years, Ms. Murphy hopes to continue her work as the owner of the Ye Olde Cross Stitchery. She would like to continue what she does because she has no intentions of ever retiring. Even though at times her schedule is hectic, she still enjoys what she’s doing.
