Welcome to our Shop Exclusives Page! We have so many great things in the shop that are special only to us. I've chosen a few to highlight here. ENJOY!
Whoo-Dunnit? from Val's Stuff
Val's Stuff in conjunction with Just Another Button Company has done a cute design for The Silver Needle!!! A double-duty thing... you get a bookmark design *It's a Mystery to me!* to tuck into the pages of your in-progress read, AND a super-cute book cover decoration! The JABCO girls are a whiz at printing artwork on perforated paper.
The big owl against the night sky is printed on paper. His 'arms' are more paper, and the little book is even more paper, stitched and backed with felt. Attach the green leaves to his head, add the clay buttons, stitch the 'arms' a little and attach. All of this is shown mounted on the cover of a book... to make a really cute decoration on a bookshelf.
So, a bookmark and a separate bookcase decoration! Val and JABCO did this for us as a Shop Exclusive at the recent St Charles MO Needlework Galleria consumer stitching show. Their kit includes a ton of stuff... the bookmark chart and perf paper, button, ribbon and felt, as well as the book cover printed perf paper and backing sheet, more buttons and felts... you'll just need to add your own floss. The book cover piece fits a 5 x 7 frame... in case you don't have a spare book to decorate!
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!!!
Presenting with Excitement: Stitching in the Garden!
from Blackberry Lane Designs
Blackberry Lane's Marie Driskill designed us a SURPRISE companion pattern to her Circle of Friends design 'Alphabet Stitches' she did for us this past year! Same colors, same fabric, same size... we are so excited to present our Exclusive *Stitching in the Garden* chart by Marie! We can't believe she just 'whipped it up' for us, but she did!!! (If you were part of this last Circle -- you have Alphabet Stitches.)
Stitching in the Garden is offered as a chart -- it has a lovely Country French Girl surrounded by her border of violets. On the back of the cushion, her stitching basket is there... just a bit of gorgeous color to treat the backside of your cushion! Stitched on Picture This Plus's 32ct Wren linen with lots of hand-dyed flosses and a few DMC flosses, it finishes approx 4 x 4.
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
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
*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
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!
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!!!
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!
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!
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!
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
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.
Secret Needle Night
These are delightful little designs we create every month, available as complete kits. We mail them right to you for only $17.50! Each is seasonal, full of cool threads, fun fabric, and neat embellishments. Very cute, and quick to stitch... they are monthly Limited Editions, that are a trademark of our shop!
Check out the collection and learn about our automatic monthly program!
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!
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!
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.
