Announcing The Silver Needle's 35th Anniversary Scissor Circle!
DOVO Solingen - click for more A Trio of Limited Edition Gold Embroidery Scissors by DOVO
Directly from Solingen, Germany - Exclusive to The Silver Needle

The Silver Needle's 35th Anniversary Scissor Circle - click for more To celebrate our 35th Year in business, we have commissioned three different styles of embroidery scissors from our favorite scissor manufacturer - DOVO - of Solingen, Germany! What a fun Birthday Celebration for us. Our gift to you is a Scissor Circle!!!
Beginning in late June of 2019, our first style will ship... mid August the second is scheduled and October will bring the 3rd. (Those blanks aren't even back from the forge yet!)
We chose three super-favorite styles that DOVO has never produced in their brushed gold finish before. The scissors will never be available to anyone else... they are exclusive to The Silver Needle ONLY! It is our One-Time 35th Anniversary... so once they are gone, they will be gone forever!

The DOVO company has been manufacturing fine cutlery for almost 140 years. The embroidery scissors they make are painstakingly precise in measurement and balance. Their tips are sharp - be careful - you can cut yourself with these! The cutting action is soooo smooth - something about the featured brushed finish of our Anniversary Set feels like nothing else. DOVO scissors are simply lovely to look at, hold and use! These are definitely a treat for any stitcher!!!

Our scissors are forged from Stainless Steel, machine and hand-honed into perfectly smooth pieces. Treated to a "Gold Plating Bath," we end up with beautiful, sleek cutting instruments for our needlework. Since these styles were never *in the production schedule* till we commissioned them (it took 2 years to get to this point!)... they are being made NOW... only for us!

Presenting our 2019 Anniversary Scissors: The Antonia, Margaret and Pauline. Named after my Grandmother, Aunt and Mother, we named our scissors so they'd be easy to identify... and not be just more 'pretty faces' in the world of scissors! Here we go:
  • Antonia - A sleek and slender 4-inch stainless steel scissor... over the years we have had this style in other finishes, but never the gold plated and then brushed finish that gives these such an elegant patina. Antonia's blades are 1-1/2 inches long. While this style is only 1/2 an inch longer than the more prevalent 3-1/2 inch styles... that extra half-inch REALLY adds a lovely feel. (Named after my maternal grandmother - Antonia was actually very short and stocky by the time I was old enough to know and love her. She came from Slovenia at age 18 to marry my grandfather. They were separated for the first night by the gate at Ellis Island!) $80.
  • Margaret - Wow... this is a wonderful little 3-1/2 inch scissor. The blades are CURVED. NO... you don't get a 'curved cut' -- remember there just a razor-sharp, and very thin edge that is touching your threads as each is cut! The scissors are straight, but the blades curve 'up' a little, which gives your hand much more room to 'get in there' to get a close cut. You can maneuver your scissors much closer to where you want to be. Might seem strange, but you'll love how they feel. Margaret's blades are only 3/4 of an inch long, but the length on the way to handles gives you lots of leverage, very precise and nice to use! (My Aunt Margaret wasn't the 'curvy type' gal... but she was the single sister, she had a glamorous job downtown, and spending the night at her house was the BEST! Together with my Mom, she loaned me my SN starter $$!) $80.
  • Pauline - This is DOVO's most popular scissor style - they refer to these as their Extra-Thin-Tipped Hardanger Scissors. We have had them in brushed stainless, but never the exquisite gold before. Just stunning and a delight to work with, the super-fine and tapered tip is amazing... you'll recognize that the minute you try to cut something super close and fine. These are a perfect 3-1/2 inches in size! (Pauline was my mother - she was an awesome lady, totally fun to do stuff with. She used to come to Market with me in Silver Needle's beginning years, and like these scissors - she was my Favorite!) $80.
So... Treat yourself to perfectly lovely needlework scissors. I am sure you have lots of fun designs in your stash to stitch fobs or scissor cases for them... if you don't... we can help with that, too!

Each scissor will be $80. If you join our Scissor circle... your first two scissors will ship at $80 each... your third scissor will be a TREAT for only $50! If you collect the 'ladies' singly - if we have any left after the circle completes - they will all be $80 each.

Happy 35th Birthday to The Silver Needle!!!!
    To be clear for our Scissor Circle members:
  • When we ship the first scissor, we will charge your credit card $80.
  • Then when we ship the 2nd scissor, we will charge another $80.
  • Then when the final scissor ships, we'll charge the final $50 - Enjoy!

A Needle of Silver
from Hands On Design
We hosted Cathy Habermann during our annual 2018 Summer Stitching Event... and here is a tiny benefit! To honor the gals at The Silver Needle, she incorporated our shop name into her verse: A Needle of Silver & a Heart of Gold. She has designed us a pin cushion that measures 76 x 77 in stitch count.

Included with the chart is a bit of aqua felt to mark the place to poke needles and pins... and we just love it! Stitched on 32ct Antique White Belfast with DMC flosses of yellow, aqua and mossy greens. Offered as a chart. Thanks Cathy!!!

Bunny Boards -- click here to see more! Bunny Boards!
Does your stitching basket or sewing case need a palette to hold a current project's thread collection? This simple rabbit outline, decorated with just a few 'scribbles' of definition is immediately recognizable as a cute bunny that would look great peeking out from a sewing case pocket!

5 Inches in height, and almost 3 inches in width, there are 10 numbered holes on her to attach working threads (or the leftovers from that special project that you store inside it's finished pocket.)


Miniature Scissor Blocks -- click here to see more! Miniature Scissor Blocks
OHhhh... we have the cutest miniature scissor blocks! Made from assorted woods, these little 1-1/2 x 2 x 2-3/4 chunks feature a slanted top, complete with ruler slot. Along with that slot, notice the larger hole near the top? That holds a pair of 3-1/2 to 4-inch embroidery scissors. Then, notice the two smaller holes? They store needles. Each of them as a tiny magnet in their bottom -- just enough to make your needles *cling* so if the block get knocked over, no needles errantly spill to the floor.

Not big, not heavy, just functional and cute! The slit can hold a small pattern, or one of our rulers or paddles that double as thread organizers. If you order multiples, we'll try to mix up your woods, but try to match ruler and organizer woods to blocks. All of these are just the coolest things!

4-Inch Wooden Ruler Thread Organizer -- click here to see more!
4-Inch Wooden Ruler Thread Organizer
*Needlework soothes the soul and inspires the mind* is the advice offered on one side of these 4-inch thread organizers... while *The Silver Needle* is the other advice for good living on the other side! Measuring 1-1/2 inches x 4-1/2... your calibrated ruler includes 5 holes to loop threads for works in progress.

It slips into the slot of our miniature scissor block, so even if you have no threads looped on it, the ruler is still there... and it's stored neatly in your block. Pretty Handy!


Wooden Time to Stitch Watch Wooden Thread Palette -- click here to see more! Wooden Time to Stitch Watch Wooden Thread Palette
I love this antiqued pocket watch design! 2-1/4 wide by 3-inches high, it again features 12 holes tor a few of your threads. Another treasure that comes in and out of our doors -- enchanting! Our shop logo is featured on that back of this -- very small, engraved just like the design on the front.

Webmaster's Note: We have some of these delightful wooden goodies for you on Accessories, Gifts & Gadgets, page 4 and more on our Exclusives page. Check out both pages to see them all!


Very Berry from Erica Michaels - click for more Very Berry from Erica Michaels - click for more
Introducing... Very Berry!
from Erica Michaels
Linda Stolz of Erica Michaels has designed an EXQUISITE wool strawberry... stitched on 30ct silk gauze!!! Designed to be a scissor fob or tiny pin cushion this little 2-1/2 x 1-3/4 confection is *way too pretty* to eat... and I'd never stick pins in mine!!! Here are all the details!

Stitched in Continental Stitch (just the first half of a Cross Stitch), your berry calls for 5 different shades of Gentle Art's hand-dyed Simply Wool -- you'll be stitching with one ply of thread. The stitched berries that wrap around the piece are little checkerboards of Mulberry and Buckeye Scarlet, the blossoms have hints of golden Brandy in them, and the leaves are a deep Blue Spruce, all against a Roasted Marshmallow background! A miniature strawberry patch on your Very Berry! Next, the berry top features matching Weeks Dye Works hand-dyed wool leaves!!!

Very Berry from Erica Michaels - click for moreVery Berry from Erica Michaels - click for more Charted for regular stitching, you could do this on linen... but our exclusive kit contains 30ct silk gauze instead! (Bigger holes than linen -- NO KIDDING!) When you are finished with the stitching, the long side is joined into a cone-shape, and the top is drawn/gathered together, with tiny wool leaves attached to the top! Just darling!!!

Offered as the complete kit, we have included the chart, gauze, 8 complete skeins of Gentle Art's Simply Wool, Weeks Dye Works wool, and your needle. Complete assembly instructions are included, along with stitching tips for the gauze! I'm holding the precious little berry in my hands in some of our pics... you can see how petite it is, and how very special and unique! *Thank You, Linda* for designing something so awesome... just for The Silver Needle!


Sweet Honey from Shepherd's Bush -- click to see lots more
Announcing: The Town Square!
from Forty Cross Stitch Designers
A darling set of 40 tiny shops, businesses and churches that together, make up an awesome Town Square and Village!!! A collaboration between different designers and vendors at our Summer 2006 Wholesale Needlework Market... everyone got together, and designed a particular building as part of the overall village.

I can't remember off the top of my head who did what... but I do remember that Shepherd's Bush had a Honey Shop, Mosey 'n Me did the bookstore, Crescent Colours had the saloon, Lizzie Kate did the Candy Shop, Sweetheart Tree had a Sweet-shop... there is a knitting shop, quilt shop, frame shop (East Side Moulding did that one!), a general store, haberdashery, a button shop -- done by Just Another Button Co!. The town hall, jail, fire station... Bent Creek did the fish shop... I could go on and on! Sandie's Sweet Shop

Anyway, offered as a set of 'freebie cross stitch charts' to those shops attending the show... Silver Needle is following Elegant Stitch's idea of loading all of these charts onto one CD for you... so you can have them all in one place, and print any or all... as many times as you wish! (We weren't sure our copier was up to all those thousands of copies anyhow... and nobody jumped up to baby-sit it while they ran!)

Because of the time and effort involved in producing the set and duplicating the CDs, we have them available for $5.00 each... with a Silver Needle purchase. No limit to the number of CDs... good inexpensive stitcher surprises here! Ready to print in .jpg format... this is such a treat!

Cross Stitch Shop Several of the designers had special embellishments on their houses... we have most all of it, so when you get your Village, and decide which you're going to stitch... you can order any necessary fabrics, threads, buttons and charms from us!

Sorry we don't have a composite pic of the whole Village... nobody had stitched one for the show... but enjoy several of the individual pics we do have!


Victorian Mourning Pins - click to see more Victorian Mourning Pins
AKA Little black stick pins! I'd never seen these before, till they appeared in Netty Nightshade's Pumpkin Furniture!!! (Any good stitcher or seamstress has pins and needles stuck in her furniture!)

Presented in a clear dish with a screw-top lid, 150 black straight pins measuring 1 inch x .85mm are nestled inside. Perfect for Halloween pin cushions and sewing cases, or something very 'antiquy'... they have a flat, matte black finish that matches our black scissors.

Ultra-Fine (Beading) Threader
A super-duper thin wire in melted into this plastic threader, securely attached to thread teeny needles, perfectly! Used in quilting, beadwork, heirloom sewing and fine needlework, the super-fine, diamond-shaped wire is designed for threading 'Betweens #12,' 'Sharps #11 and 12,' Milliners #11, and Beading #10 & 12. Absolutely wonderful... you'll want these to keep in every needlecase you own! Ours are packaged 2 to a pack, in a clear, protective plastic case, which includes an outer sleeve. Really cool!


Ultra-Fine Threader

All-Purpose Threader
A great all-around needle threader... these will thread Tapestry needles as well as many others. The durable design features a wire that is fused into the plastic housing, along with a recessed cutting blade on the opposite end! There is even a small hole provided in case you want to attach it to a favorite chatelaine or project! Ours are packaged in pairs in a protective plastic sleeve and case. Very handy!


All-Purpose Threader

Needlework Threader
The heavy-duty version of our other two threaders, this one is perfect for Tapestry and Chenille needles. Used for needlepoint, cross-stitch, hardanger and embroidery, it's perfect for perle cottons, yarn, ribbons and specialty threads (like some of the heavier Rainbow Gallery ones!). The square design of the threader allows the thread to 'spread out' as it passes through the eye of the needle, so there is much less stress, (and less breakage later on!) It features a recessed cutting blade, as well as a hole for attachment to a chatelaine or sewing case. Packaged by the pair in a wonderful clear plastic protective sleeve... they slip into a clear case for extra protection.


Needlework Threader

The Threader Collection
A trio of needle threaders, each with a specific use. Specially packaged for The Silver Needle in a handy, clear storage sleeve. $7.50 pkg.

Ultra-Fine: for quilting and beading needles.

All Purpose: a good general use threader with a built-in cutter.

Heavy-Duty Threader: for larger threads and delicate fibers, too. Also has a built-in cutter.
