A few of the auto-ship programs The Silver Needle, Fine Needlework Materials, everything for cross stitch

Our Auto-Ship Programs


There are several on-going series of Cross Stitch designs that have become our customer favorites. They come from some of our favorite designers, and are released at regular intervals.        
Our auto-ship programs for these various sets let you be among the very first to receive them, as soon as they're released! We do add a nominal shipping charge to them, but since they generally go US mail, it's not cost-prohibitive each time.

Choose several options with our autos:
  • Purchase past kits, which ever ones you like.
    (except Secret Needle Night... details follow on that!)
  • Join our auto with the current kit available.
  • Join our auto with the next-to-be-released kit.
  • Think about Gift-Subscriptions!
  • What a fun thing to give to someone special! Choose a few months of something... or even a year subscription... we can bill you, and ship the stitchery to anyone you wish, for you! Just let us know in the comments box on the order form that this is a gift, and give us the shipping information.
We keep your credit card on file, and automatically charge and ship you the kits the day they arrive to us. They show up as little stitching surprises in your mailbox! If you need to cancel for any reason... it's not a problem. Just let us know before the next kit in that particular series ships to you!

(Note: when you order an auto-ship, it will show up on your order form as a "zero-cost" or $.01 item, as we won't charge your credit card until we ship.)
Catch-Up & Continue will enable you to get ALL the previous designs in a series with your first shipment and then continue on monthly through the rest of the series. $$$ Amounts may vary and some add up very quickly!




The Haunted Mansion with Rooms 1 and 2 from Tiny Modernist - click to see more The Haunted Mansion by Tiny Modernist
This is a cute cut-away of quite the busy, haunted Halloween mansion! By Tiny Modernist, this first chart features the house outline, roof, moon, and everything going on in the yard. Each of the 6 rooms (that are blurred out in this pic to keep them a surprise!) is offered in a separate little chart (but those are ONLY $2 each!!!) The main house is worked on 32ct Haunted Linen by Picture This Plus. It finishes approx 10-1/2 x 14.

Each of the tiny room designs finishes approx 3 x 4, and they are all cute by themselves -- in case you don't want to stitch the whole house. I happen to know Room 1 is Dracula in his bedroom. Room 2 is Miss Witch -- she's cooking something green and bubbly! Room 3 Is The Library -- and it's haunted by a ghost! Room 4 Is Dr Frankenstein's lab. Room 5 Is the front porch, and Room 6 is the dining room -- complete with skeleton guests!
Main house chart along with Rooms 1 and 2 ship August 22nd. Rooms 3 and 4 ship Sept 19th and Room 5 and 6 ship Oct 17th. Might just be easiest to join our auto-ship for this. It is DARLING!!!!!!





O Tannenbaum from Erica Michaels - click for more Adeste Fideles from Erica Michaels - click for more Caroling Berries from Erica Michaels
Linda is beginning a new set of pin cushion designs - 8 berries with 8 rectangular versions! OK... lots of details here. Themed for Christmas Carols, there are 8 charts releasing from July to November of 2018.

Each chart contains a Carol Berry design to FINISH as a berry, AND a squared-off version of that design for a rectangular cushion in case you don't want to do the berry shape. Choose any fabric you like - this entire series will be monochromatic - so you can see in the pic that choosing a pretty hand-dyed thread is perfect for these.

Adeste Fideles (O Come All Ye Faithful) and O Tannenbaum are available now. Future Carol Berries will be: Angels We Have Heard on High, Deck the Halls, Silent Night, Jingle Bells, We Three Kings and Joy to the World. (We have lots of coordinating Weeks threads and Lady Dot trims; Linda mentions that a fat quarter of fabric will be fine to stitch all of your berries or rectangles. Maybe get the first two charts and THEN decide on your fabric/thread/bead/wool/trim colors. Super classy little things!!!

Introducing Daisy Mouse on her Summer Mouse Garden Scissor Roll! from Just Nan
Daisy Mouse on her Summer Mouse Garden Scissor Roll from Just Nan Just Nan is announcing a new set of designs -- a series of scissor rolls called Mouse on a Roll -- and Daisy Mouse is the first!!!! Shipping the first week of June (that's like 3 weeks from now!), Daisy (approx 1-inch in size) is stitched on Weeks Dye Works 32ct Blush Linen. She is guardian of her Garden Roll (approx 10 inches long but only 2 inches high when rolled) that is stitched on Weeks 32ct Lilac Linen with DMC floss.

Darling, darling, darling, Daisy's garden scenes decorate the outside of her roll. There is a birdhouse scene surrounded by lavender flowers. Another scene features a hanging flower basket above her koi pond. There are sunflowers around a shiny glass gazing ball, and a blue pottery pot beneath her rose trellis. Tiny daisy chains separate the scenes which are grounded with bargello grass patterns. The scenes are embellished with white and lavender pearls and a gold lotus flower closure.

Inside, Nan says, 4 little helper mice are scurrying along the garden path to the scissor house -- a padded pocket for your 3-1/2 or 4-inch embroidery scissors. *Follow a mouse to the scissor house*! Daisy is adorned with flowers and a white daisy hat, she has a wired tail and is holding a miniature skein of floss!!!!!

Pattern comes with all the necessary embellishments -- overdyed sage green wool, her wired string tail, antique brass button mouse base, flower hat, beads, pearls and gold lotus bead -- along with the 8-page stitch guide with full assembly instructions. Fabrics and DMC offered separately.
WE WILL OFFER AN AUTO-SHIP for the rest of the Scissor Roll Houses in this series -- they will all release in 2019.





Letters from Mom from Jeannette Douglas September Letters from Mom from Jeannette Douglas October Letters from Mom from Jeannette Douglas November Letters from Mom from Jeannette Douglas
Letters from Mom from Jeannette Douglas
Letters from Mom by Jeannette Douglas -- click to see more But these can be Letters from ANYONE! Jeannette Douglas is beginning a lovely collection of small samplers -- all about 3 x 5-1/2 in size. They are sentiments inspired by thoughts she wanted to pass along to her daughter right after she left for school. The small samplers will surround this main center panel you see on the cover of the first design. Letters from Mom could read 'letters from Nana' or any other special someone you want to remember.

For the next 12 months, Jeannette will release small sampler charts 3 at a time -- something appropriate for its season -- with a bit of Cottage Garden hand-dyed thread included. You'll need the rest of the flosses from your stash. She's described each month's design thoughts in this main packet, and they are just heartwarming. You can finish this project by making this first design into a fabric envelope and storing all the mini-samplers inside the envelope, or join them all together in the lovely main sampler. Stitched on 36 Platinum Linen, the entire piece will measure 17 x 17. VERY pretty!

Each chart comes with some Cottage Garden hand-dyed thread as well -- I think you can see that color variation in some of the sampler borders.
September 2018 -- Dec, Jan and Feb charts included in auto-ship.
December 2018 -- March/April/May in shipment.

Jenny Bean's The Parlour
from Shakespeare's Peddler
Oh my gosh... you might remember this one... Teresa started with two parts of her eight, part three is now here! Each part is presented as a separate chart... this entire sampler is going to finish something like 4 FEET long on 32ct -- 170 x 810! Stitched on Picture This Plus's 36ct Wren... you'll need a half-yard cut. Shown here are parts 1, 2 and 3.

Part One: Alphabet -- well, an alphabet!
Part Two: Adam & Eve -- pretty classic as far as samplers go!
Part Three: Noah's Ark. I don't think any of the rest of the parts will be biblical... we asked!
Anyway, we HAD an auto for this... long ago cancelled that. SO... if you want to re-collect this lovely piece via Auto -- let us know!
No set release dates for subsequent parts, but each part's chart will run you $8. This collection released in Feb 2018, we expect a 12-month timeframe.

Beth is beginning a set of 12 charts -- one every month -- doing a HUGE collection of really TINY cushions and fobs! Itty Bitty -- (less than 30 x 30) like 1 x 2... berries, fobs, cushions, disks, flats, whatever you want them to be! Chart 3's theme is Stitching. Chart 2 is Springtime. (#1 is Valentine, which has just arrived.) When you are finished, you'll have something like 110 smalls! Give them to 110 friends, or nestle them all in an awesome wooded tray or woven basket. Make some two-sided, finish them flat for ornaments... ANYTHING!

Charted for Weeks flosses, do everything on the same fabric, or mix and match... you decide! Remember, they are small, so you can probably get away with 5 or 6 inch scraps, some even smaller! Get out your finishing velvets and trims... this is going to be an AWESOME set of designs!!!!
Joining from the beginning will include all the charts released so far at $10 each, subsequent releases will all be $10 each. This collection introduced in February of 2018... we expect it to finish in Feb of 2019.

The Short Stacks and Flap Jacks - Around the Holidays!
from Hands On Design
Sounds like a yummy breakfast meal is coming our way, but it's just a new set of pin cushion designs by Hands On Design! Cathy is doing a 6-chart set of super-cute drum and matching square projects. Oh Say Can You Sea is the first. You can see just part of the whole design -- that cute submarine floating by amidst the crabs and seaweed. She has the drum design printed on the chart's cover, so if you want to frame it instead, you can see how cute the entire stitched design is.

The round cushion -- the drum -- the SHORT STACK -- measures about 4 inches in diameter and 2-1/2 inches high stitched on 32ct. It is trimmed with Lady Dot chenille and topped with the coordinating velvet. The rectangular cushion -- the FLAP JACK -- measures about 3 x 4. The delightful set of pins poking from them is an optional coordinating set (NEW from JABCO) that will be offered for each set of designs. 'Oh Say' is here now, the rest of the five in this set will arrive every two months from now on. Stitched with Sampler Threads, the charts come with enough velvet to finish one piece -- either the stack or jack.

We're beginning an auto-ship for this cute set! Auto-Ship will include the chart (with velvet), coordinating Lady Dot Chenille Trim and JABCO pin set each month! (We can't auto the fabric... too many choices)
Joining from the beginning will include all the charts and embellishments already published in this set. It debuted in February 2018, we expect it to finish in February of 2019.





#29 Leaf Sprinkles from JABCO #24 Burgundy Sprinkles from JABCO #18 Mudslide Sprinkles from JABCO #06 Lemon Drop Sprinkles from JABCO SPRINKLES! from Just Another Button Company
These are delightful little packages filled with at least 35 tiny hand-dyed buttons that coordinate with each other and your DMC and hand-dyed embroidery flosses. Tiny hearts, stars, flowers, circles, triangles and squares.... none of them are large in size, but HUGE in cuteness and decorative impact! The JABCO team has organized 35 different color-packs, and I must say, they are a treat to see all together! Some packs are more mono-chromatic than others... I think you'll be able to see what I mean in our pics.

Divided into three color categories, Fresh Colors, Neutral Colors and Organic Colors... I have listed MY thoughts (in parenthesis) on DMC color matches to each pack. After you've determined the DMC colorway, it'll be easy to match again to your hand-dyeds. Use these little guys to *SPRINKLE* and garnish pin cushions or sewing cases, or ANYTHING cute that needs a little button!!!!
$11.50 per pack

WE HAVE A SPRINKLE AUTO-SHIP! CALL US NUTS!
It'll be 3 packs each time for $30.

This auto began in March of 2018; we expect to finish in March of 2019.

Celebrating our fine feathered friends, Spring Fever is stitched with a medley of taupes and soft dusty blues. We are beginning our auto-ship for the charts... let us know if we should count you IN! *AND LINEN EACH TIME OR NOT!*
  • The Light Upon the Lawn -- Blackbird's #2 Loose Feathers *For The Birds* 2017 series has arrived. The same soft color palette of soft browns, caramels, denims and mossy greens as the rest will be in this series, it is stitched on 36ct Ale by Picture This Plus. Barb and Alma say the pattern's title is inspired by Emily Dickinson's poem, 'A Light Exists in the Spring.' In the poem she speaks of the light in spring being colored differently than the rest of the year... awaiting us to come into the garden to enjoy! Just so pretty!
  • She Sights a Bird -- Barb and Alma's third design in this year's Loose Feathers series is here. Celebrating the birds of your garden, this one was inspired by one of Emily Dickinson's poems -- 'perfect that this cat is surrounded by three birds!' In keeping with the denim and straw colorway this time around, this finishes approx 5 x 5 on 36ct Oaken hand-dyed linen.
  • All the Hills Echoed -- the 4th design in this year's Loose Feathers series of 9 designs, finishing approx 5 x 5 on 36ct Picture This Plus Oaken hand-dyed linen. The name of the pattern comes from a poem by William Blake, describing the small sliver of summer daylight left. The early evening echoes of children's laughter - just when they need to come in - but they're too busy outside playing!
  • Sing a Song of Seasons - - Blackbird has sent their 5th in this year's Loose Feather's Series - For the Birds. Following their color scheme of taupes and cremes, demins and dusty greens, this edition features kind of an out-of-control exotic floral urn with equally out-of-control blooms and sprigs! Finishing approx 5 x 5... no verses... no nothing... just pretty!
  • Pleasure of the Fleeting Year - The quiet Winter... awaiting the coming Spring... I think the dark windows in the house make this seem cozy, sleepy and close to dusk. Barb and Alma continue their series of houses and gardens... the main attractions being all the charming and different birds who frequent them!
  • Hear the Crickets Sing - Blackbird Designs' #7 In the 'For the Birds' Loose Feathers Series. This follows the same soft and faded dusty blue and taupe color scheme, and size (91 x 91 stitches) of the other 6 designs so far... but we have a little rose color tucked into the flowers. Charming all by itself, or together with the rest of the ongoing set, this is offered as a small chart -- just like the rest in the set.
This collection debuted in February of 2017. There will be nine charts total... no definite release dates scheduled.

Just like all the other Gingerbread Mice, she comes as a small chart with her tail, halo, wings, her brass button base, a 'Joy' banner and a smattering of gold beads for embellishments.
Bluebird Tweet
This little Spring Guy is stitched on 32ct Little Boy Blue Belfast in just bits of DMC floss. He comes with wire legs too! *...a swirly tail, twisted wire legs and a berry in his beak. He can hang by his tail but prefers to stand on his cute little legs. We provide the wires and instructions to make the legs, plus the gold tail, beads, felt for the beak and a burgundy pearl 'berry'.* Finishing a mere 3-1/2 x 2, remember stitching gets folded in half... so he's less than 2 x 2!
Juliet the Bride
Just Nan is releasing the CUTEST little bride mouse -- Juliet -- who said *Yes to the Dress!* The latest in Nan's limited edition ornament collection, Juliet's lovely hand-stitched and beaded dress, tulle veil, along with her crystal and beaded rose bouquet are all your hand work! She has an elegant gold tail hanger and brass button base, so she won't trip up the alter! Stitched on 32ct Belfast linen with bits of DMC floss and metallic, the total stitched area is a mere 2 x 3! EVERY bride this year needs her very first ornament this Christmas... perfect for a shower gift... and darling on any Christmas tree!
Witchy's Sister Mouse -- Miss Witchy Mouse has a younger sister who follows her everywhere!!! Nan has painted her hat charm with orange trim and garnished it with a black crystal. She's given her a tiny purple broom that has a bitty ghost helper riding along!! The kit comes with the chart, painted hat, silver tail hanger, orange beads, brass button base, ghost sequin and felt for the broom. (You'll need a round toothpick for the broom handle!)

Gingerbread Reindeer Mouse -- Another of Nan's cute stitched mice -- this little guy needs to hang close-by to all your Gingerbread Angel and Jingle Mice! He is a reindeer -- complete with tiny reindeer antlers and red reins. He has a Rudolph-red nose, and is wearing a Christmas Sweater to keep him warm on The Important Night. Stitched on 32ct Picture This Plus's Gingerbread Linen with DMC and just a touch of gold metallic, he finishes a mere 2-inches in size -- the same as everyone else in his family. Offered as a chart with tail hanger, beads, nose, and brass button base, he is precious!!!!!
Mr Nutley Owl & Embellishments
Mr Nutley Owl is Oakley Owlet's big brother. He is not larger -- just older and wiser -- and that is why he is known as Mr Nutley. He has glowing copper eyes and wears an acorn cap -- a real one that Nan has collected on her evening walks along the Georgia coastline! Included in Nutley's kit are 2 colors of beads, copper eyes, and tan felt for his base, along with the uniquely-Mother-Nature-made acorn cap!

Offered as the chart with embellishments, you'll need a bitty cut of linen and DMC flosses from your stash. Mr Nutley finishes approx 2-3/4 inches high stitched on 32ct Country Mocha Vintage Linen, AND he is a limited edition Just Nan Ornament!
Gingerbread Mrs Santa Mouse
Mrs Santa joins last year's Gingerbread Santa mouse! She is wearing a striped and beaded Christmas dress with a white collar and holly trimming at the hem. She has a cute little mopcap perched on her head, and she's holding a tiny gingerbread man cookie -- right from the oven.

Stitched on 32ct Gingerbread Linen by Picture This Plus, she comes with her special beads, tail, button base, and cap material. You'll need a little stuffing a bits of DMC floss. So... cute!!!! Another little mousie to add to your collection, Mrs Santa comes as the small chart with embellishments.
Hazel FunWitch Mouse is cousin to Miss Witchy Mouse and Witchy's Sister Mouse! Hazel's goal is to ride so high she can sweep the stars from the sky! Her colorful dress features stars, spiders and a ghost pumpkin. She wears a purple hat trimmed with a swampy-colored green crystal and rides a broom of orange Weeks Dye Works Houndstooth hand-dyed wool! Stitched on 32ct Stone Grey Belfast, she finishes just 2 inches tall -- stitched area is approx 2 x 3. When she isn't flying through the sky, she prefers to sit on her Witching Hour Cube.

Secret Needle Night
from The Silver Needle
These are our shop-exclusive monthly kits! Each month, the first Wednesday, we release a specialty thread kit that we have designed ourselves, chosen fun fabric, threads, and embellishments, and kitted the whole thing! We even include a recipe for the desert served that evening!

They're always on large count material, always seasonal or holiday in theme, and limited edition kits. When each Secret Needle Night is finished, its kit is retired forever!

We've been offering Secret Needle Night for almost 18 years now... and have the past 5 years or so of projects up on our Secret Needle Night page. All the details are there... all the pics... take a look! Hope you'll join the program!

We automatically mail them each month, on that first Wednesday, so they show up in your mailbox... a surprise every month! Overseas mailing isn't a problem, either. We send loads of them each month... all it takes is a padded envelope and a customs tag on our end... and they're on their way to you!
So, you see... every month we have something really fun and cool waiting to send off to your stitching fingers!

Visit our Secret Needle Night page to see more history of the program, and see if you want to enroll. You can sign up to receive it every month, to receive just specific months, or for a one-time trial. And don't forget gifts! What a great monthly surprise for a friend! Enjoy!
