Bent Creek Charts
6068 S. Sheridan Rd. Tulsa, Ok. 74145 (918) 493-1136 (888) 543-7004 E-Mail
Note: our Bent Creek pages have grown so large in size that we have divided them up into two pages: Charts and Kits.
New things are added to both pages, so don't miss out!
These are some of our customers' favorites! Bent Creek has a primitive and 'earthy' design style, that they've used to create some timeless designs. Simple, yet creative, you can embellish many of these with the specialty threads and embellishments on the market. Patriotic, Samplers and Alphabets, Halloween, Christmas... they cover everything! Lots of overdyed flosses are called for! The kits, especially the "Zippers" are so popular! Enjoy Browsing!

Other Cute Kits
Precious Friend, Make the Days Count Row, Pop of Spring
Bent Creek has three new designs...
- Precious Friend is a chart - the 4-1/2 inch design is worked on 32ct Lambswool linen with Weeks or DMC threads. *Of all possessions a Friend is the most Precious.*
- Make the Days Count - Don't count the days! The latest in BC's ROW set of designs (I think there are 28 so far!), it's just a really nice reminder to tuck in an unexpected place! It finishes about 2 x 17 on 32ct linen and is stitched with hand-dyed flosses. No buttons called for on this one... but I bet there are a lot that would be cute on here.
- Pop of The Season - Spring - This is the first of the 4-seasons of round trees, there is a small digital image inside the chart of the other three trees coming. It is full of bright blue butterflies. Winter is a round tree of snowflakes, Summer is full of pink flowers (which is totally NOT a Bent Creek Color - but they did it! And Autumn's tree is full of little blackbirds. Presented as a kit of 20ct linen with #5 pearl cottons, it's a breeze to stitch. Each of the 3 other trees will come with a single cut of fabric as well, so if you want to wait and stitch all 4 in a row, you'll need to save the smaller cuts that come with the kits, and get one larger cut. No release dates shared for the rest, but they ARE designed, so they'll come!
The Best Day Snappers
The Bent Creek girls have created 4 small scenes for the seasons and added a sentiment: "Write it on your heart that Every Day is the best day of the year."Each of the 5 seasonal panels feature a cool subtle patterned background that adds a lot to the overall effect.
The Spring Chicken has a checkerboard, Winter Snowman features diamonds, the verse has wisps of wind, Summer has horizontal lines stitched in graduating colors to simulate a sizzling sun and Autumn has blowing leaves all around that cute owl.
Small designs, each is approx 3 x 5... so stitched together, this will be about 15 x 5. Presented in 5 individual small charts.
Snapper: World of Color
OK... a new 6-part mini set of designs surrounded by a border, I think this is actually going to be very cute! Each of the 'colors' are presented as a small chart -- the first is red -- and they include that color of small button and a snap embellishment. (They can also be stitched alone.)
The main border chart that surrounds everything is separate -- 335 x 80 in stitch count, it finishes approx 22 x 3 on 30ct Week's Straw Linen, and it comes with more snaps and seven colorful buttons. The Auto-Ship is now completed for this design.
The Snapper Liberty House
Bent Creek has sent a three-story house -- just like North Pole, The Haunted House, and The Green House -- only it's on ONE chart! Real cute, we see the Oval Office on the first floor... I don't think they've signed the Declaration yet! Second floor features Betsy sewing the first flag... there's a little mouse there watching! Third story features the White House museum -- portraits and such.
Offered as the chart with a few button and snap embellishments, the stitch count on this is 78 x 188, so it'll finish approx 5 x 12 on 32ct. Each of the other Houses have released in small card chart format, but because this one has all the designs together... unfortunately the price reflects that... and is quite a shock. (Kind of like its own Fireworks!!!)
The Red Thread Snapper Series|
Bent Creek has begun this year's set of Snapper Cards... a set of 12 designs -- seasonal/monthly in theme -- featuring a very important Red Thread in each small pic.
There is a freebie border chart, with special embellishments, that wraps around your 12 small designs, telling the story of The Red Thread -- based on an Ancient Chinese Belief. 'An invisible red thread connects those who are destined to meet, regardless of time, place or circumstance. The thread may stretch or tangle, but it will never break.'
So, January's little snowman has a red scarf that will twist and meander through the year, tying all 12 designs -- that are destined to be together -- together!!! Small cards are available separately and include their own snap embellishments. Border chart includes the clay and extra snap embellishments.
Individually, the designs finish approx 2-1/2 x 2-1/2 on 32ct. As the set, stitched inside the neat border, the whole thing will finish approx 4 x 33 inches. Stitched with a combo of DMC, Weeks and Gentle Art Flosses. So, pick up what you want, as you can... or order the set all at once... and we'll do the rest! (all except the stitching!!!)
The last in the Summer Snapperland set is finally here! The first design is darling... it's a tiny beach house, complete with a whale weathervane and little red crab on the sandy beach!
Offered as the small individual card, there are snap embellishments included for the each design. As with Spring and Winter Snapperland, Bent Creek has designed a really neat border chart, so that you can stitch all four designs in this mini-set as one bigger design. That border design reads, 'Turn your face to the sun, and the shadows fall behind you.' Along with the sunshine and shells, there are seahorses in the border design as well, and the special embellishment package contains more snaps, clay sand dollars and a sea scallop.
Stitched on 32ct Rue Green Belfast Linen... each design finishes approx 3 x 3. Stitched together with the freebie border, the entire piece finishes approx 5 x 15. SOOO cute!
We will finish the year with Autumn Snapperland... a 4-part set that includes its own border chart and embellishments. You can still get all the preceding sets, as well!
'There are always flowers for those who want to see them!' Spring Snapperland has arrived -- a 4-part set of small charts -- it features an optional freebie border chart that fits the 4 designs together surrounding them with that wonderful quote I just mentioned!
Stitched on 32ct Twilight
Blue Belfast Linen in lots of overdyed goldens, oatmeals, mosses, and browns... the Spring Snapperland set has 4 small card designs. Each includes a pack of metal snaps -- the required embellishments.
Stitch each individually... or join them together within the charming border design... it features its own embellishment set that includes some clay ladybug and bee buttons, and lots more snaps. Get everything open-stock... or join the order all at once... stitch the parts you like best -- which, for me... is ALL OF IT!
Just starting this series? Then be sure to check the original set, Winter Snapperland.
'Autumn is a second Spring, when every leaf is a flower.' Bent Creek's final celebration of the Four Seasons -- in Snapper Card Designs! Presented in 4 small individual designs, Harvest Time is the first, with the barnyard and scarecrow outside. Autumn Walk is the second... the trees wander and follow the hikers a bit. Pumpkin Hunt and Turkey Farm finished it up!!!
Each square design is a small 'Snapper' card, that includes a snap as its embellishment. Tying all these small squares together is the complimentary border chart and embellishment package... just like we have been treated to for Winter, Spring and Summer Snapperlands!!!
A really cool series... we just finished an auto-ship for the rest of the cards in this set.
You'll recall Snapperville... the set of 6 houses and businesses... a little town. Then, we were treated to Spring, Summer and Winter Snapperlands -- each of these containing 4 card designs, the border chart and embellishment packs. Quite a collection... each of the seasons or little town are charming, and definitely customer favorites!!!
Walking in a Winter Snapperland|
or... as we call it: "Chillville!"
The Chalet is first in Bent Creek's set of 2006 Snappers entitled 'Walking in a Winter Snapperland'... we at the Silver Needle are affectionately (and thus shortening the name) calling this new set "Chillville!" A new set of 4 small card Snapper patterns, The Chalet is the first of the designs. Charming and cozy stitched just by itself... Chalet is the first panel of the main design that's tied together with a freebie border chart supplied to us by Bent Creek. The border is similar to Snapperville, and says 'One kind word can warm the three winter months...'
The embellishment pack contains the extra snaps, snowflake buttons and a white winter bird. Stitched individually, each card's design will measure approx 3 x 3. Stitched with the surrounding border, the entire piece will measure approx 5 x 17.
The Winter Chillville fabric cut is actually a 1/6 yd piece of linen measuring 12 x 27, slightly larger than 3 inches of allowance of each side... but economical to cut!
The Snapperville Series
Wow... this is the cutest new set of six designs... each is part of a village affectionately named Snapperville!!! Offered over the next 4 months, Bent Creek is releasing 6 small cards... each cute by itself... but even cuter stitched together with its mates. Each card features a set of snap embellishments and measures approx 3 x 3 on 32ct Natural Linen.
There is a master chart -- a FREEBIE with Snapperville card purchases -- it has a swirly border, some skinny pine trees, and this verse: Teach us that we may feel the importance of every day of every hour as it passes. Very "Benty Creeky," we like to say in the shop... this is stitched in both Weeks and Gentle Art flosses, and finishes approx 4-1/2 x 23-1/2 when all is done.
The embellishments for the master chart feature silver snaps as the stars in the sky over Snapperville, and clay buttons of a blackbird, brown bird, star, and little gold berry. Endearing!
The final card in the tiny village scene has arrived to finish out the village of Snapperville. The freebie border verse that we offer with this small set speaks of taking time to appreciate the finer things in life. You could stitch each of these six designs individually, but together with that border design, this is one of Bent Creek's more charming creations. Our Angie stitched the shop model... isn't it cool?
Make the Day Count Row
Make the Days Count - Don't count the days! The latest in BC's ROW set of designs (I think there are 28 so far!), it's just a really nice reminder to tuck in an unexpected place!
It finishes about 2 x 17 on 32ct linen and is stitched with hand-dyed flosses. No buttons called for on this one... but I bet there are a lot that would be cute on here.
A long and narrow reminder of the reason-for-the-season... angels. the three wise men, and Holy Family... the stitch count of this is 310 x 30.
Choose any fabric you like; charted for DMC or hand-dyeds... this finishes approx 19 x 2 on 32ct. Presented as a chart.
*A Journey of a thousand miles must begin with a single step.* Good Advice to face the challenges of life! Bent Creek's newest chart features a forest of evergreen trees dotted with cardinals and snowflakes. Their verse is hidden in the alphabet letters... and they have highlighted the word BEGIN in there -- which actually spells that way in alphabetical order!
The model is stitched on Weeks 30ct Confederate Gray linen with various hand-dyed flosses. It finishes approx 18 x 4. You can put this on most anything you want... and I think it'd be an awesome to design to showcase some neat unique green threads from your stash!!! Presented as a chart with 5 small flake/flower buttons.
Think Happy Be Happy Row
*Our life is what our thoughts make it: Think Happy, Be Happy!*
One of Bent Creek's ROW designs, this can be stitched on just about anything you want, and calls for 6 hand-dyed or DMC colors. (Easy to change those out as well... in case you want something brighter.)
The stitch count is 281 x 29 - so on 14/28ct, this finishes approx 19 x 2. Might be kind of fun on 18ct over two! Jazz it up alittle -- add more buttons. The chart comes with one purple heart button. Whatever -- lots of possibilities!
I Love You More Than All The Stars in the Sky -- The ROW
Bent Creek's newest ROW pattern, this one finishes approx 1 x 12 when worked on 32ct. We're love the verse, but we're thinking you might want to brighten this up a little -- the stars are purple and gray... they could use a little perking up!!!! An easy fix for a lovely thought!
Offered as a chart with smattering of crystal seed beads.
Gnomes in the Garden Row
Oh my gosh... isn't this the cutest thing? A row of those funny gnomes who hide in your garden, only one is actually working!!! Offered in chart format, this is stitched on 32ct Natural Linen in overdyeds or DMC flosses - your choice. Finishing approx 2 x 17, the chart comes with one brass flower charm.
THINK of all the cute clay stuff we have to dress this up! Worms and bugs birds, little flowers and vege buttons, see what you have on hand, then give us a budget! DARLING!
Quaker Noel Row
Here in plenty of time to stitch for next Christmas, Bent Creek has a new alphabet row that incorporates Quaker-inspired motifs into a Christmas theme. I like those trees on the ends. Offered as a chart, the stitch count is 277 x 33, which finishes approx 17 x 2 on 32ct.
Again, lots of possibilities to add little buttons and what-nots... although Quakers were simple people who didn't believe in embellishment and extravagance!
This is a cute row... we rarely get circus-themed designs, so this is a refreshing change! Lots of bright overdyed colors, they've packed the ringmaster in here, the tiny acrobat on the high wire, trained elephants, the big tent, the flaming hoop that something has to jump through (!) the lion-tamer and his lion, the strongman, the circus clown... and festive floating balloons everywhere!
The chart comes with one green star button, but I bet you can come up with lots of other fun embellishments for this! Finishes approx 2 x 17 on 32ct, Cute!
Lots of clovers scattered about -- but only ONE with 4 leaves! I see two leprechauns in here... and lots of gold coins! Offered as the chart, this finishes long and skinny just like the rest of the rows.
Clay button embellishment package is coming... really dresses these up with cute bits of color!
Easter Bunny Row
Another of BC's famous Row designs, this one is full of rabbits and chirpy little chicks. Baskets and flowers scattered throughout, this is offered as the chart, and stitched on 32ct, it finishes approx 2 x 17.
There is an embellishment packet coming of clay buttons to dress this up a bit... will have more info about that in a week or so! we'll keep you posted!
It's been quite a while since we've seen a lonnnnnnnng row of the alphabet from the gals at Bent Creek... so this was a nice surprise when we opened our fresh shipment! Offered as the chart, stitch ROWmance in either DMC or overdyeds, it'll finish quickly into a 2 x 17 confection!
We always had a cute pack of button embellishments available for these rows... I haven't heard any word about that yet... I'm looking into it! Anyway, ROWmance actually features a *tiny verse*... there is a little bee in there, and he's flying around the heart that says B mine! Cute!
OK... another long and thin line of the alphabet... this one features a few stitching motifs.
Like all of the other BC Rows, this one would be really happy if you'd add a bunch of colorful buttons to it!
Finishing approx 17-1/2 x 2 on 32ct linen, change some threads, add some fun charms and things from your stash, even a DINKY pair of scissors would be cute on here! Offered as a chart. A separate clay pack includes pin cushions, spools, quilt blocks and little stitching basket that look *so* cute scattered about on this!
'The patter of little feet, a voice so soft and sweet, Sweet Child of Mine' is the verse on this cute birth record! Bent Creek has a new *row* pattern that can actually be worked in any colors you wish, and personalized with that Sweet Child's name and birth date. Offered as a leaflet, the finished piece measures approx 3-1/6 x 16 on 32ct.
Normally, the Row Series is garnished with lots of fun clay buttons from Just Another Button Company... but this one doesn't have any...yet! If we're talking about a girl... we have precious hearts, flowers and 'girly stuff' that would be cute... and if you want something with dogs and worms on it... we have that too! I think this is a PERFECT row to get creative with your featured baby's future traits! Remember that fabrics can change too, so think about room colors. Real Cute!
Seasons of Change Row
Bent Creek presents a nifty 'Row' through the year of seasons! Offered as a leaflet -- just like all the rest of the 'row patterns' -- this one finishes approx 2-1/2 x 23 on 32ct Natural Linen, and is stitched in a combination of Weeks and Gentle Art overdyeds. I especially like all the details in this one! Snowflakes begin the year -- flowers appear in the Spring -- waves surround the lighthouse -- and falling leaves blow Autumn off the right-hand edge!
I like the boxes around the motifs, I like all the color, I like all the activity... I think this is one of my favorites! Bent Creek also calls for clay buttons on here... a little redbird in the winter, a couple of stars and hearts for the spring and summer and delicate little falling leaves for the fall. It's a 'gotta-stitch!'
'Of my love be sure' is the perfect verse for this wedding remembrance! Offered as a leaflet, in the same 'row' format as Bent Creek's other designs, this is stitched on 32ct Summer Khaki Belfast linen in soft, dusty shades of overdyeds. It calls for Whitewash, Cocoa, Old Red and Blue Paint, and Harvest Basket... but you could always alter some of that to match the home's decor.
Finishing approx 3 x 18, there is an alphabet included to personalize... and as of posting time... we have no extra button embellishment set. I know there will be one... probably full of lots of hearts. Something young and fresh... not too much stitching... this is really nice!
Happy Christmas Row
Happy Christmas to All! Bent Creek's newest holiday greeting is offered in leaflet format, with the darling clay embellishments, as an additional treat! Stitched on 32ct linen in Weeks Brick, Rum Raisin, Bark and Juniper, along with Dried Thyme Sampler Threads, it measures approx 2 x 17.
The clay buttons are especially festive this time around, because there are so many new ones included! There are some awesome trees, a 'swirly thing' and ornaments, a cookie and a swirled candle -- real, real cute!
Let Us Be Thankful Row
We like this one! Another in the Row series, you could stitch this, and finish it into a super-long little box-shape and use it to dress your dinner table! Stitched on 32ct Vintage, it measures approx 2 x 17.
Offered as a leaflet, it's worked in overdyeds, and is an 'easy stitch' because there aren't too many color changes. (The overdyeds do it for you!) Our friends at Abecedarious -- Bent Creek's local needlework shop in GA -- always do a wonderful job embellishing these rows with fun buttons... so that set will be available any day! So... we're thankful to Bent Creek, the ladies at Abecedarious, and overdyed flosses!!!
Trick or Treat Row
Trick or Treat... Smell my Feet! Quite the welcoming greeting around Halloween Time! This is just the cutest, stitched in an array of Weeks overdyed flosses. This time around, the words are stitched in three different colors -- Bark, Swamp Water, and Onyx, so there's actually quite a bit of color in here!
The button embellishment pack is now ready, too. Available as the leaflet, this finishes approx 2 x 17-1/2 on 32ct, with clay available separately.
Gosh, this is cute!!! The newest 'Row' pattern by BC... you might want to stitch this for a special teacher, but then again, you might have to stitch multiples!!! Worked on 32ct Summer Khaki in yummy overdyeds, there are lots of fun school-stuff things on here. Check out the "i before e" rule in there!!! The colors in this are soft and well-worn, like a 'well-loved!' textbook, the motifs are cute, and the whole thing is perfect for your favorite teacher!
Bent Creek's local shop -- Abecedarious, in Atlanta, always does fun 'extras' for these row designs full of Just Another Button Company pieces. With TWO A+'s... the frog, apple, and even the worm... this must be quite a special teacher! Check out the little stack of books, too! This clay pack is stuffed full of extra treats for BC's Row this time around! Cute! Offered as the leaflet with clay buttons and placement sheet separately.
The newest long 'row' chart has arrived... a quick stitch of Easter Eggs, with a simple verse. As always, there will be a cool clay button embellishment pack available this week, that will dress this up quite a bit, and add a bit of whimsey!
Offered as a leaflet, it finishes approx 2 x 17 on 32ct Lambswool Linen. The 11th of the Row designs... most of the others feature just the alphabet, but Valentine and Easter feature a little verse.
The latest alphabet row has arrived... only it's not just an alphabet. Initials carved lovingly on a tree are surrounded by hearts and the Classic Question! Measuring approx 2 x 17 on 32ct Vintage Linen in rich Maple Syrup and Lancaster Red overdyeds, the colors are very Bent Creek.
Once again, ABCedarious -- Bent Creek's local needlework shop in the Atlanta area has decorated this row with Just Another Button Company clay! We don't have a price on it yet, so it will show up in your shopping cart as a zero-cost item until we get them in. The placement sheet will come with the button purchase.
Valentine Row is available as a leaflet.
Yet another charming long alphabet garnished with neighborly houses and trees, this is just as cute as all the seasonal Row designs! Finishing approx 17 x 2 on 32ct Summer Khaki Belfast Linen, stitched in both Weeks and Gentle Art Overdyeds, the colors are so rich and pretty.
Once again, ABCedarious -- Bent Creek's local needlework shop in the Atlanta area has decorated this row with Just Another Button Company clay!

Joining Kitty Cat row... these doggies measure just 1-1/2 x 17-ish on 32ct Natural Belfast linen. Stitched with overdyeds, the design features shoes, bones, and a newspaper, all tucked between the little dogs of every color! The gals at Abecedarious in Atlanta have once again done a seasonal assortment of Just Another Button Company Clay Buttons -- taking the doggies all through the year -- that is stuffed full of color and charm!!! Definitely the most expensive part of the design... it's worth it, because so are your little 'puppy-babies!!!' (Note: Michael of Bent Creek has told me that Kitty Cat row has been the top selling leaflet in Bent Creek's history!!! I wonder if Puppies will top it???!)
Kitty Cat Row
OK... I'm a 'dog-person' but this is pretty cute, just the same!!! A long row of placid cats is tucked between the alphabet letters. Available as a leaflet, once again the gals from Abecedarious -- a shop in Atlanta -- have customized this design with a whole assortment of clay buttons to take your kitties through the seasons from A to Z!
Stitched with lots of golds, browns, grays -- the little mice! -- , and touches of greens and mulberry (the yarn balls), notice the 'Z' cat is sleeping! Tons of cute buttons from Just Another Button Company, we're offering the chart separately, and the buttons with placement chart, if you're interested.

Lots of teeny holly leaves, pine cones and light bulbs... you'll love the set!
Another very long and thin alphabet by Bent Creek, Spooky Row is full of the cutest Halloween motifs! The cauldron at one end... and my absolute favorite -- that little buzzard/vulture guy down at the other -- this is stitched in black, browns, oranges and creme overdyeds.
Spooky Row by Bent Creek now has a package of embellishments! A darling set, it includes quite a few new clay pieces from Just Another Button Company. Notice the cute Jack-o-Lantern guy, and those new "Wild" pumpkins! Cute, each Row-Pack, dreamed up by the gals at Abecedarious in Atlanta, really adds a lot of charm to this series of Bent Creek Rows!
The entire series of "Row Designs" is so much fun to have! All our models are hanging together in the shop... and they look great!

This is Bent Creek's design... only decorated with a delightful set of clay buttons! Again we credit the artistic talents
of the shop Abecedarious (pronounced: a b c darious!). Such a fun selection of pumpkins, acorns leaves and blackbirds... you'll need this! Really cool!
The Halloween Branch
The final installment of the Halloween Branch is here... oh my gosh... it finishes off with a DARLING little haunted house on the tip of the branch! There is so much going on in this piece... what fun to stitch! Measuring 5 x 11 on 32ct, you can choose any fabric you like, and you can use either DMCs or overdyeds from your stash.
OK... Bent Creek has now finished 4 of these Branches - and we have them ALL -- COMPLETELY! Check out the Original Branch, Christmas, Patriotic and now Halloween. All four are really cute sets of smaller charts that all fit together... we can send parts of any of them... or wholes!
Liberty Belle Squirrel is part one of Bent Creek's new Patriotic Branch series! Patterned just like their other two Branch sets, this will be offered in 3 parts, all in chart format with a few button and snap embellishments. Stitched on 32ct linen, the entire piece will finish approx 5 x 11, and is worked in both Weeks and Gentle Art Sampler Threads. The border pack contains the 5 star buttons you see on here... the rest is a surprise!
I'm not sure you can see from the pic, but that little squirrel is holding a sparkler! (remember when we used to *run* in the backyard with those burning hot, sharp, pointed things flying everywhere??? I think children have way MORE than 9 lives!)
UPDATE: Bent Creek has sent the final installment of their Patriotic Branch 3-part design -- JUST in time for the 4th! It finishes with a white bird house perched on the end of the branch. Quite a cute piece, the whole thing finishes approx 5 x 10 and is stitched with your stash of overdyeds. Each chart includes a couple of snaps and a button or two. Something fun to display all year long!
The Christmas Branch
Bent Creek has started a new Branch set of designs... all the fun things you'll find tucked on the branches of a Christmas Tree! I guess it's an outside tree... because there is a squirrel on here. (I wouldn't want that in my house, but we did have a mouse that came out of the tree one year, and the dogs LOVED it!)
Anyway, this promises to be another cute set of small designs -- this first installment includes the border and embellishment packet. Finishing approx 5 x 10 on 32ct, uses overdyeds from your stash. Our Auto-ship has now concluded. Fabric is not included... as you have so many choices! Pick a favorite!
Bent Creek has introduced a new set of Snapper Designs. This one, entitled 'The Branch' is presented in 5 total parts -- this main border design, with space inside for 4 more 3 x 3-ish designs. 'We can learn a lot from trees... they are always grounded and always reaching heavenward.'
Offered in a set of 5 small charts... the owl, tree, border and button embellishments come in the first chart, then the Bees, Squirrel, Kitty and now Bird House, each come as separate small charts with a snap embellishment. This has been a real popular piece; check your stash to make sure you haven't missed any of the parts!
A big statement concerning LUCK... this baby finishes a whopping 11 x 13 on 18ct over two... but can always be stitched into a more petite size on smaller fabric! Stitched with size 5 Perle Cottons, this works up super-quickly, and is really fun because you cover a lot of fabric very quickly!
The Shamrock is stitched with Weeks hand-dyed perle -- the color is Collards -- and the chart includes 3 'gold coin' button embellishments.
The newest gigantic Bent Creek creation... these are stitched on 18ct linen with Weeks Hand-dyed #5 Perle cottons, along with some solid DMCs. Even though this Valentine is *uber*... it was gentle in delivery... the little mailbox is intact!
Finishes approx 13-1/2 x 11.
Uber Christmas Tree
This is an AWESOME design!!! Offered as the chart, you're supposed to stitch it on something big -- like 18ct linen over two, or 10ct Tula.. even 7ct Klostern would be neat. Worked with mostly Weeks Dye Works #5 perle cottons, this finishes approx 11 x 12. I love the elves stacked up trying to get the star on the tree top... I think it's bending over for them! (Wish my tree would do that for me!)
Just a real different, eye-catching piece, this would be great finished as a gigantic pillow for the couch, or something to perch under the empty tree, till Santa comes!
Is this guy cute, or what? He BEGS to be stitched on 10ct with specialty threads (Very Velvets and Fyrewerks)... but right now, he's pretty awesome on 18ct linen with overdyed flosses or size 5 perle cottons, (your choice!) Stitch count of 98 x 120, his colors are great, and because of all the solid areas... he'll be a breeze to stitch!
Offered as a leaflet... think about lots of pumpkin, squash, eggplant, and corn buttons to garnish down by his feet!!! REAL CUTE! Offered as the leaflet (Bent Creek's other 'Uber Designs' are pretty cute, as well!)
What a cute, huge, swirly pumpkin! Offered as a simple chart, this is just a big Jack-o-Lantern stitched with overdyeds on 18ct linen over two. OK... look at it.
Start thinking. Clay JABCO cat instead of the stitched one? Metallics in those bitty dots in the background? What about metallics in the swirls? What about halloween-y clay buttons scattered between all those swirls? What about black Fyrewerks for the eyes... and cute embellishments in the vine below him??? THIS HAS POTENTIAL... because it's a great basic piece!
A generous 11 x 13-1/2 inch piece, you get to stitch this one on 18ct linen over two threads and use #5 Perle Cottons in Weeks and DMC.
Regular crosses, the flag stripes have a bit of design to them, that's kind of fun. This would be pretty made into a pillow for the couch, or framed on the wall.
Offered as a chart.
I had never heard the term *Uber* (pronounced U BER) till this pattern came... and received a short education into current slang terms in the English language. Uber -- these days -- means really, really big. (as in Super-Duper!) Well, this egg *does* deliver that persona! I don't know if you can see the little chick standing on the top of the egg... but he is PRECIOUS! Then, you stitch your egg with different bands of patterns, and embellish one of the rows close to the bottom with a set of 7 pastel buttons.
Uber Egg finishes approx 11 x 13 on the suggested 18ct linen... using #5 perle cottons! If you choose smaller fabric, such as 32ct, it would finish approx 6 x 7-1/2 in size. Offered as the single chart with buttons, fabric is up to you!
Holly Quaker Stocking
Bent Creek's 8th Christmas Stocking design, this one is full of gigantic Quaker-inspired motifs -- kind of like a coverlet. Stitched on 18ct Natural Linen in shades of overdyed #5 Perle Cottons... if you're a floss gal... you can do all on the 18ct with 4 strands of corresponding flosses.
A pretty collection of greens and reds, the chart comes with one red button embellishment. In looking at this, you could add charms and such that match the stocking owner's personality, as well. Very pretty.
Check out the entire collection of Bent Creek Stockings, all in one place, too.
Twelve Days of Christmas Stocking
Bent Creek's 7th Annual Stocking design... 12 Days is a medley of motifs from the famous poem. I had to look a little for the five golden rings!!!
Offered as a chart, it finishes approx 11 x 16 on the 18ct Natural -- just like all the rest. Embellishments included with our chart include 5 red and golden buttons.
Making Christmas Stocking Selections? Don't miss seeing the entire collections of several different designer's talents! Christmas Stockings are an individual thing! Some want all in the family to match... some want different designs to 'match the person'... Check out our Stocking Page for lots of options!!! |
Christmas Eve & Christmas Carols|
Bent Creek's newest Christmas Stocking designs... these two bring the set to 6 in all! (Just scroll down this page to see the rest of them... they're all still available!) Jane (Christmas Carols) features a family of caroling snow people beneath the lamp post. Zachary's stocking (Christmas Eve) features Rudolph, himself, pulling Santa's sleigh!!!
Offered as leaflets, each stocking is stitched on 18ct Natural Linen using 4 ply of overdyed Weeks and Gentle Art flosses. Complete alphabets are provided for personalization... so you have no excuse to have these done by Christmas! A very nice set... they aren't 'cutesy, juvenile, or over-the-top involved'... just really nice family stockings! Each finishes approx 11 x 16 -- perfect for lots of loot!!!
Santa Train & My Favorite Things Stockings
Two new leaflets have arrived that offer charts for two of the most charming Christmas Stockings!!! Stitched on 18ct Natural Linen in yummy Weeks and Gentle Art Sampler Threads, each finishes a nice 11 x 16 -- which is large enough to hold Santa's precious gifts! Each one has a smidge of Just Another Button Co clay button embellishments, and they join the other two stockings that Bent Creek has already introduced.
Each of these is really nice... not trite or juvenile looking ... just really classic -- and that will last for years and years to come! Offered as leaflets with fabric and buttons available separately, our stocking cuts of linen are fat-quarter yards of linen, because that is the most economical way to purchase. You'll have enough linen left over for an ornament or two!
Snowman and Holiday Home Stockings
These are two of seven new releases by Bent Creek! Snowman Stocking joins Holiday Home as Bent Creek's first two stocking patterns. Stitched on 18ct Natural linen in frosty shades of Oatmeal, Shaker White, Lavender Potpourri, Old Blue Paint, and woodsey tones of Chestnut and Bark along with a few other wintery overdyed flosses, the stockings finish approx 11 x 16-ish inches! Embellished with clay buttons, the leaflets contain an alphabet for personalization. The fabric cut we're offering is large enough for one stocking and enough extra to add a bit of length, if you wish, and you may want more than one skein of some of the threads! Cute and blustery...
Other Cute Charts
Precious Friend is a chart - the 4-1/2 inch design is worked on 32ct Lambswool linen with Weeks or DMC threads.
*Of all possessions a Friend is the most Precious.*
Here's a cute pumpkin originally published in 2000! (So, check your stash to make sure you don't already have it!)
It'd be cute stitched and finished into a cushion - just to perch on top of some real pumpkins. And if you stitched it over 2 on 18ct linen, you could make a little weighted door stop, too!
Oodles of Summer and Look For The Beauty
Bent Creek has released two new designs:
- Oodles of Summer is full of barnyard animals all hanging out with the sunflowers. Measuring 61 x 81, it'll be just 4 x 5-ish on 32ct.
- Look For The Beauty... in Everything is the charted design that was Bent Creek's half of our summer Stitching event in 2019. They presented with Heart in Hand, and this fun little piece was one of our projects! My original pic has some lace flowers in it - lace came from Lady Dot Creates.
The chart now has those flowers graphed for you instead... and we think it's just as cheerful and fun. Stitched on 32ct Country Vintage Mocha Linen, this finishes about 5 x 10. (If your colors in the pics are totally different... know that I took the model pic in the shop - the real, original stitched piece. The other picture is from the chart cover, which to me, is more washed out looking than the real thing!
Retro-Re-Prints: NOEL & Merry Christmas
Oh, we had shop models of these back in the 'olden days!'
- NOEL is the classic BC cabin in the snow scene... we had this stitched on 10ct Natural Betsy Ross Linen with specialty threads - and Mona had made it into a half-circle box stand-up! Measures 87 x 76 in stitch count... add some flake embellishments between the letters, some opalescent for the snow, there are already pretty hand-dyeds used for the trees and cabin. Coded for DMC and Weeks threads, the original published date for this was 2000!
- Merry Christmas - Just a cute tree, this is coded for both Weeks and DMC, and measures 76 x 111. This one was originally published in 1995! How many things in your house can still look good 25 years later (besides you?) Still really cute, they did some larger X's and Rice stitches in the tree greenery for texture - you'll see when you get the chart.
Do you remember this? Bent Creek published it in 1995 - so it's 25 years old! A beautiful little flag, it measures 91 x 65 in stitch count - so 9 x 6 on 10ct, 6 x 4 on 32... or even 2-1/4 x 1-1/2 over one on 40!
It uses just DMC of 815, 822 and 823... and the letters from the alphabet make up all the stars. The stripes have no pattern to them - just stitches here and there to get that raggedy flavor!
The Flurries: Wintery Wonderfuls and Merry Moments
These are small charts that each feature two SMALL designs that are supposed to be mini snow globes or those mini dome-globes (you know, the ones made out of plastic that are bitty!) The mini globes measure 24 x 25 stitches - so if you stitch them over one thread - they'll be an INCH in size.
The mini domes are 18 x 24 - even smaller! Look past the finishing a little, and imagine a little bit smaller, a little more subtle... stitched on 32ct linen. The designs are petite and detailed, very cute! Charted for DMC or hand-dyeds.
NEW from Bent Creek
We inspired Elizabeth and Marsha a little when they came this past summer for our stitching event... so we have two new treats from them! We are thrilled to see fun stuff from them again!
- Smiling Back Jack says: 'Jack O lantern smiling bright, wishing you a haunting night!' You have a YEAR to get this stitched, but I bet it'll take only a few hours! The buzzard on top of the pumpkin is pretty cute, so choose any fabric, maybe stick him and one of the verses on the front of a little cushion, and stitch the other part of the verse for the other side? Presented as a chart and coded for all the hand-dyeds or DMC, stitch count is just 100 x 44, so it'll finish a fun and petite 3 x 6 on 32ct!
- Fall Lla Lla - Wow, this plays with your mind a little! At first I read Fa La La and wondered what leaves had to do with Christmas. Then the llamas register, THEN I finally read the words again, and I GET IT! I love it! Quite on the whimsical side - that's Elizabeth's humor showing right through! A small chart, coded for hand-dyeds or DMC, it measures just 50 x 46... so 3 x 3-ish when finished. A cute cushion to throw into your basket of smalls, and see if anybody reads it and gets it too!
Today is a Good Day
Here's a stitching opportunity. Kind of a blank canvas here - Customize this to make YOUR Day Good!!! Change out that black for COLOR! Add a birthday cake if 'today' is a birthday. Add some cute colored buttons, or use some metallic threads to brighten this.
The sentiment is good, the font is funky and fun, the heart and flower in there beg for a little pizzazz... see what you can come up with! Then, finish it into a block or easel stand-up so you can display it all over the place!!!
A chart that suggests *Let us see what Love can do.*
Finishing approx 5 x 5 over two on 30ct, this is coded for DMC or hand-dyed flosses. If you stitch it smaller, you could make a heart-shaped little cushion!!!
Easter Bunny Trail
This is supposed to be a front door... the 374 Bunny Trail at the top is the street address of the Bunny household. They have a lot of kids... wee babes in the upstairs bedroom, Mom working on another one, tons of kids on the first floor -- hopefully just a sleepover and not seven more bunnies in the family!
Then, there's Dad, answering the front door with a carrot cake!!!! Finishes approx 5 x 5 on 30ct... choose any fabric you want for this... coded for hand-dyeds and/or DMC floss.
The Thankful Owls
Oh my gosh, these little guys are so cute! A pair of owls dressed up as a pilgrim and Indian... they ARE grateful, thankful AND blessed! That fork is great, too! They just look like they are SO disguised... you'll never know they're owls! Presented as a small card chart... just a fun 'little something' for Thanksgiving!
Wedding Cake - Your Color
Wedding Cake - 'Your Color'! A simple tiered cake with special initials and date... you choose the colors of the wedding to work this in!
Offered as the small chart, this finishes just 2 x 3, and it would make a SUPER CUTE gift tag!!!
The Little Irish Cottage
A BITTY 24 x 24 thing... stitch this on anything you want! Less than an inch over one on 28 or like 3-1/2 inches on 7ct! Bits of flosses from your stash, the roof is regular Cross Stitch with straight stitches over it to make it appear thatched. Check out the Lucky Landscaping as well!
Cute, this is presented as a small chart.
The Little Igloo
Oh, another charming ITTY BITTY design, this one is a wintery sky surrounding a little igloo -- complete with a dinky penguin that is only 7 stitches high!!! The entire picture measures only 24 x 24 stitches -- all of these are absolutely charming!
Offered as a small chart.
The Little House of Ginger
Almost not-in-the-Nick-of-Time for Christmas... you'll be a whole year ahead of schedule with this!!!
Oh, this is CUTE!!!!
It's one of Bent Creek's *Littles* charts and has a total stitch count area of only 25 stitches. Using a combination of DMC, Weeks and Gentle Art hand-dyeds, it's a sweet bitty design that could even handle a few beads for candy bits -- if you have any in your stash. Otherwise, just plain stitching in this petite little piece, which is presented as a small chart.

Just a charming set of designs... I think we have finally gathered them together for you

Here is a beautiful set of seasonal designs! Each has 5 little panels depicting things special to its particular time of year! Each season finishes approx 4 x 9 1/2" on 32ct linen... but look soooo good on large counts, too! Each is stitched with Week's Dye Works overdyed floss to really give it depth. Wouldn't some fun, nubby or metallics be fun on these? There are tons of clay, ceramic, and glass embellishments the I can think of, too!
Wow... this is quite nice! A Quaker-inspired piece -- it's about 1/10th the size of most of the intricate Quaker samplers that we see, so it's finishable!!!
With a stitch count of 80 x 80, get out your overdyeds and stitch that darling turkey! Offered as a chart, it includes a trio of golden star buttons. We like this one!

You know, there is enough room to stitch something like *Boo Who?* in the upper right-hand area! Or... separate that little owl -- he's precious!
Stitch this on almost anything you like -- the chart calls for Gentle Art and Weeks flosses, with DMC alternatives... so even Perle Cottons on something gigantic would be possible.
Offered as the chart, there is one dark red star button included, but this design offers so much opportunity for more -- so see what is in your stash!!!
Peapod Baby Sampler
Welllll.... this isn't exactly a pea vine, and the embellishment isn't a pea, but little sleeping Matthew looks pretty comfy in his hammock bed anyhow!
Quaker Easter Egg

On 32ct, it will finish approx 4 x 5 and is stitched in either DMCs or our stash of over-dyed threads.

Santa -- The Littles|
Here's a fun little chubby guy that finishes really dinky! (Hence, the 'littles' in the title!) Offered as a small card, if you stitch this guy over one thread on 28ct... he's LESS than an inch in size! (You could make a teeny scissor fob.) Over two on 28, he measures 1-1/2 inches square.
The card comes with the small brass star embellishment, and the design uses just bits of overdyeds from your stash. Cute!
This is the cutest one of these! Check out those little doodle-ladybugs on there! Finishing a whopping 2 x 19... this whole set has been fun, because it's perfect to hang on that skinny wall everybody has between two door frames! The other three Soapboxes are pictured on the back cover, so when you get this, check your stash, and make sure you have the other
three! You could even get industrious, and stitch all four side by side on one chunk of fabric, add some clay buttons, and make quite an impressive piece! Summer Soapbox is presented as a leaflet.
This is a beautiful long, skinny flag stitched entirely in overdyed flosses. On 28ct, it finishes approx 2 1/2 x 14... so it'd be a lot of fun to hang in a long skinny place!!!
