S is for... from Finally a Farmgirl
This is a cute little design reminiscent of postage stamps I think! Measuring only 132 x 57, this finishes approx 8 x 3-1/2 on 16/32ct fabric. Coded for DMC.

It'd make a charming 4-sided cube - stitch Santa and Snowman on opposite sides and flakes on the opposing sides! It is presented as a small chart.

Gifts to You from Homespun Elegance - click to see more Gifts to You
from Homespun EleganceHomespun Elegance has a new Cinnamon Stick Design, and this year, it's Santa, stitched in tons of pretty threads on 10ct Tula! Calling for Weeks #5 Pearl Cottons, Rainbow Gallery's Wisper for the fur and beard, and lots of flosses, he finishes an impressive 10 x 13... so he makes a generously-sized pillow! Santa's gift list is for a lucky stitcher. It reads, Samplers to Stitch, Sweaters to Knit, Rugs to Hook, and Quilts to Piece.

Offered as a chart, we have all the cute embellishments (a wooden spool on here, some tiny scissors, brass buttons, etc) included, as well. Very cute, this one BELONGS in the home of every stitcher!!!!

Victor's Stocking from Just Nan - click for a larger view Angel Stocking from Just Nan - click for a larger view The Just Nan Stocking Collection

I just want to highlight -- in one place on our site -- Nan's lovely collection of Christmas Stockings. Each have been annual releases, and cover 8 years! Timeless designs, each is prettier than the last. Lots of horizontal bands, pretty stitches, beads and crystals, you'll notice that the top bands do not feature names. If you like, you can add that to the top of each... but I like that small tag that can hang off the side... a really classy way to announce the owner!

The Angel Stocking features a center area that will fit ANY of Nan's 15 Annual Angels... so you have LOTS of choices for this one! (You could stitch the whole family angels, using the same main stocking design. This leaflet includes one angel design.)

Little Victor -- Nan's first grandson -- arrived almost 5 years ago, and his stocking does differ from the rest. He has that darling teddy bear, and lots of tiny motifs from Nan's other Christmas designs! More color for Victor -- he IS kind of a bold little personality -- so he deserves to be different from the rest!

Anyway, quite an eye-catching collection of elegant stockings, totally different from the usual whimsical stockings available... stunning hanging from an elegant, traditional mantle! Each is offered as the leaflet with embellishments.

By The Chimney from Prairie Schooler -- click to see more By The Chimney from Prairie SchoolerThe Prairie Schooler presents their 4th annual Santa kit! (no... the small annual card #25 for 2008 is NOT here yet... we'll let you know when it comes!) Designed for Crescent Colours hand-dyed flosses... each year, these are stitched on 28ct Natural Linen, and finish approx 5 x 8. This year's limited edition design is stitched with Cupid, 3 skeins of Blackbird, 2 skeins of Spinach, and one each of Magnolia Blossom and Rosy Glow.

I love the scene... I think this is the best of the 4 designs so far!!! Offered as the chart, linen and flosses, we do still have 2005, 06 and 07 available. They are limited in production, so I don't know how long the previous designs will be offered to us. THIS ONE IS CUTE!!!

The Christmas Needlework Shop and Holiday Carols! from Mill Hill - click to see more

The Christmas Needlework Shop and Holiday Carols! from Mill HillMill Hill has released the 2008 set of Christmas Button & Bead kits... we've been treated to these for years and years, and this set is one of the BEST! We have two new additions to the 12-pc Christmas Village Series -- Carolers and the Needlework Shop! The four new Carols are stunning!!! Jingle Bells, Deck the Halls, Silent Night and Joy to the World are very eye-catching, and so full of bold design element.

Wonderful color, the words are plain, each design is full of pretty stitch and bead detail... and I think you could even stitch the middles of each design as individual ornaments! Always offered as complete kits of 14ct perforated paper, the chart, flosses, lots of beads and a Mill Hill hand-made button, each finishes approx 5 x 5. Our shop models will be presented on 28ct linen, like always, so we've chosen fabric colors that match the original paper background colors. You're going to need all of these!!!

Nutcracker Ballet from Mill Hill - click to see more

Presenting the Nutcracker Ballet! from Mill HillMill Hill has released a wonderful set of 6 small ornament-sized beaded and stitched decorations for Christmas! Celebrating the Nutcracker Ballet... each 3 x 4-1/2 ornament is stitched on 14ct perforated paper with DMC flosses and Mill Hill beads. Offered as individual kits, we have Uncle Drosselmayer, Clara, The Mouse King, The Nutcracker, Sugar Plum Fairy and The Prince.

Stitch just one or two, or all six for your tree.. they'd be kind of fun hanging in the same general area. They don't use any metallic threads, and I personally think there are lots of places that you could add some -- just for fun. See what threads you have in your stash, and get to work! Think about stitching a whole army of Nutcrackers -- you could change uniform colors. Think about stitching the Sugar Plum Fairy for all the little girls in a dance class! This is a timeless set of great little ornaments! Offered as complete kits of chart, perforated paper, flosses, beads and glass Treasure embellishment!

Christmas Eve Couriers Santa's Sleigh from Mirabilia -- click to see moreChristmas Eve Couriers Dasher from Mirabilia -- click to see more Christmas Eve Couriers from MirabiliaMay we present a most charming set of Santa's Reindeer??? By Mirabilia's Nora Corbett, this is an exquisite set of 8 charts -- each of one of Santa's devoted reindeer -- dressed and ready for Christmas Eve's Special Deliveries!!! 'On Dasher, On Dancer, On Prancer and Vixen... On Comet, On Cupid, On Donner and Blitzen...' Comet, Prancer finish the set!

Nora has designed this lovely set of reindeer, that each share the same stitch count, so therefore, the same finished size of approx 5 x 6-1/4 on 32ct. Beautiful DMC colors, each features some Rainbow Gallery Wisper thread -- for deer tails, bits of metallic, and Mill Hill glass beads and treasure embellishments for some extra sparkle! Choose Twilight Blue as your fabric... we have it in several counts.

The little reindeer are colorful and charming... very festive! In my minds eye, I see Dasher and Donner as a set, Dancer and Blitzen as a pair -- because of their trees, and Vixen and Cupid together. Of course, you can choose any that you want, and certainly all 8! They are elegant... wouldn't they be pretty pillows on your chairs this year? Offered as charts with embellishments (intact packages of the beads and treasures) offered separately. Just put your cursor over each image to see its name.

A Quaker Christmas Offered by ByGone Stitches -- click to see moreA Quaker Christmas from ByGone Stitches
Offered by ByGone Stitches, we are treated to this decidedly intricate Quaker-inspired spot motif sampler... with a bit of Christmas tossed in! Available in chart format, the whole piece measures approx 20 x 13 on 32ct, and is worked in only three colors of overdyed threads.

Now... study this a bit. The chart is very clearly done... you'll probably want to highlight the three different colors with highlighters. Next... realize that this has potential to be a family sampler... by simply changing the JOY, PEACE, and NOEL words and various scattered letters to those that have significance in your family. It doesn't have to be 'Christmas' if that's not a goal in your decorating scheme, or stitching schedule!

The design is awesome -- such great balance and symmetry -- especially for a spot-motif piece -- it's just elegant! As is, it calls for 20 skeins of Crescent's Balsam Fir, 2 skeins of Cupid and 1 of Ye Old Gold. Look at your decor, choosing your favorite green, a touch of red and gold... and order enough thread at the onset to finish this! All crosses, offered as the chart... this is stunning!

Holiday Harmony Kits from Mill Hill - click for more
Holiday Harmony Kits from Mill HillMill Hill has just released an AWESOME set of small bead kits -- all musical instruments -- perfect for your tree or small gifts! Each instrument measures approx 2-1/2 x 3, is stitched in floss and beads on perforated paper, and is trimmed with a brass embellishment. Choose between a Violin, French Horn, Mandolin, Harp, Drum and Trumpet. Stunning for tree ornaments, these would be perfect to give to so many people as small Christmas gifts, too! (Think of the choir director, and everyone else in your group!...and the music teacher... or the musician!)

Very traditional and elegant in feel, the colors feature rich browns, deep reds and greens, along with lots of glistening gold beads and metallics! Offered as complete kits of chart, needle, paper, flosses and metallics, beads and charms, these are really a bargain because of all the colors of threads and beads included! Lovely!

The Christmas Village in Buttons & Beads from Mill Hill - click for more
The Christmas Village in Buttons & Beads from Mill HillOh gosh... Mill Hill has designed 6 new houses to join last year's Village series of Button & Bead kits! These are DARLING!!! Offered as complete kit on 14ct brown perforated paper, loaded with beads, flosses and a ceramic button or two, last year's set was so popular... that I know this year's will be too! Stitch them all individually (we love to use 28ct Natural Linen) or stitch them together in a long strip... they are elegant!
  • Queen Anne has frosty blue colors and candles burning in all the windows.
  • Skating Pond is a 'break' in your village... it's part of the activity happening outside!
  • General Store has peppermint posts!
  • Apothecary is lit up -- might be a 24-hr pharmacy!
  • St Nicholas Cathedral is white and glisteny. Lots of white and ice beads in this one!
  • Village Bakery is closed... but it's sign is a delicious gingerbread man cookie!
  • Very well done... pick a few from last year, and add some from this year... and watch your tiny village grow and grow!

    2007 Appalachian Santas
    from Mill Hill2007 Appalachian Santa Kits from Mill Hill - click for moreEvery year, Mill Hill does 3 old-time Santa ornaments in simple cross stitch with a little bead embellishment. This is the 9th year to add to the set of Musical, Mountaineer, Polar... all of the previous 24 are pictured on our MH Kits pages. Stitched on 14ct Perforated Paper, each finishes approx 3 x 4-1/2, and makes a charming hand-made addition to any Christmas tree!

    Allegheny has a teddy bead in his sack, Blue Ridge is holding a raccoon and Smoky Mountain features a cat.
    Simple, with Olde World appeal... we keep selling the first year's set just as much as the newer ones!!! They are an awfully good value, as well... maybe that's why!

    Big Nick from Sisters & Best Friends -- click to see more Big Nick from Sisters & Best FriendsSisters & Best Friends' newest Big Santa... he goes with the other 4 they already have published! Packed FULL of bright, cheerful color, this year's Santa features beaded trim on his package and a beaded rope -- with Swarovski crystals -- that closes his bag. Check out the tiny mouse perched atop the kitty... all in front of the window!

    Offered as a leaflet with embellishment pack of beads, crystals, clay peppermint and holly, some stars and buttons, Big Nick measures approx 12 x 12 on 28ct, and is stitched in regular DMC flosses. I just love the colors and the shading... such a big puffy chair, such cute trees and that sack... and such a teeny little face on Nick! Charming!

    Ariel from Just Nan -- click to see lots more Ariel
    from Just Nan
    Just Nan has released her 15th angel... and this time... we have a border that surrounds Ariel, and all of her predecessors! Offered as a leaflet, Ariel is the same petite and delicate angel Nan has always designed for us.

    Her border is universal to the rest of the angels, and the leaflet supplies color conversions for highlights in that border, so it will compliment the angel of your choice!!! Ariel is also another angel option for the center of Nan's Angel Stocking design!

    Christmas Day -- click to see lots more Christmas Day from Prairie Schooler
    Five more ornament-sized Holiday motifs are gathered together in the Christmas Sampler version of Prairie Schooler's new set of Foursomes!

    The partridge is cute, the snowmen are, too... I like the way each comes to the very edge of the design. It fills up your ornament... you know if you do those individual squares over one on 32ct, they will measure only a teeny-weeny INCH in size!!! How cool is that?!

    Good Saint Nick -- click to see lots more Good Saint Nick from Prairie Schooler
    'Up on the housetop click-click-click, Down thru the chimney with good Saint Nick.' The 4th in the new Prairie Schooler Foursome set of designs... this features the main sampler the same size as the Autumn, Winter and Christmas designs... but its foursome of Santas finishes slightly larger (5 x 7) than the others.

    Same great PS colors, I really like that portion at the bottom of the main piece... you could taker that out and just stitch IT! ... or the Santa at the top coming out of the chimney!

    The 2006 Prairie Schooler Santa is Here -- click to see lots more The 2006 Santa is Here! from Prairie Schooler
    The 23 Annual little Santa card has arrived... and this year our Man-of-the-Season is sewing stockings! In the same small card format as every other year, same color scheme, this year's is a charming addition to the set! We have all the rest of the previous designs available... STILL!

    Prairie Schooler has re-printed past years in a 9 x 12 format with 4 years of Santas together, as they have run out of the single cards... so you may have to double up on one of two to get the whole 23 year set. Over the years, we've seen these done into Afghans, bell pulls... you name it. Kind of special remembrance for me, personally... Prairie Schooler was a new designer at the second Market I ever attended, in Atlanta, in the Summer of 1984. They created quite a stir... and introduced their first Santa card at that show!

    Also of note, are the two Limited Edition Santa Kits that Prairie Schooler began last year. Both are currently available -- they are offered as the design along with complete skeins of Crescent Colors hand-dyed flosses, linen and needle. A special thing for PS simply because they have always used a DMC color palette... both the 2005 and 2006 Santas remind me of those in Good Saint Nick!

    Santa's Tree Punch Needle from Teresa Kogut -- click to see a larger view Santa's Tree
    from Teresa Kogut
    Finishing approx 4 x 4, this is stamped onto very dark and distressed Weaver's cloth, so if you leave a bit of border showing... it'll look old and neat. Santa takes 15 skeins of Weeks overdyeds -- lots of deep reds and greens!

    Teresa Kogut is a new addition to our Punch Needle Department! Her designs have such personality... you can just 'hear' what all the characters are saying in her pieces! Be sure to check out the rest!
    Winter Snapperland Banner - click to see more Walking in a Winter Snapperland
    or... as we call it: "Chillville!"

    from Bent CreekThe 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.

    Now... we are beginning a new auto-ship for this set of "Chillville's" 4 patterns. You'll receive The Chalet, the fabric cut, the embellishment pack, (no price as of my words this morning) and border chart with your first shipment. The other three will just contain the cards. Anyhow... join the auto.. this is going to be CUTE!!! 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!

Finishing approx 5 x 8... Dear Santa is full of Prairie Schooler's timeless balance and primitive flavor. Deep reds and greens... some brighter cremes and more greens... something about PS's Santa designs defies dates -- they never seem to look 'yucky-old!'... just 'wonderful-old!'

    Check out last year's Here Comes Santa Claus... same colors, same size... we can still get him! (The annual small Prairie Schooler Santa card usually releases July 4th Weekend... THIS is a different guy!)

Cute, cute...lots of teeny beads and a gold charm or white snowflake embellishment, these look really nice on the Christmas tree... because they're a nice size. Finishing approx 2 x 3... check out some of the previous sets from years past, too!

    Mitten Games from Crossed Wing Collection
    What a charming winter scene!!! Reminiscent of Crossed Wing's Frosty Feast design, this is a detailed, shaded snowman, complete with a wooly green scarf and hat set. His faithful companions, the dog and bird, are stitched with just as much detail and color shading as he. Crossed Wing really has a flair for the realistic, and this design is full of that flair and has fantastic winter charm!!! Finishing approx 4 x 5 on Snow Squall Linen, Mitten Games is offered as a chart, with linen separately.
