Classy and trendy... the collections all feature loose, relaxed, pigment dyed linen and linen/cotton gauze. Very Organic, Very Artzy-Fartzy, Creative and Fun!! Sizes range from petite to really-not-so-petite... and everything looks great on everyone!

I couldn't get everything in every size... (yet!)... so check out our FLAX page... see what you think. Come in and try it ALL on!

The Dublin by Craftlite -- click to see more
Introducing The Dublin by Craftlite
Craftlite has a *dynamite* new Table/Floor Magnifying Lamp... kind of blows the rest out of the water! This little guy can be a desk lamp -- either free-standing base or the optional table clamp -- or two additional extensions make it into a floor-standing lamp. That gooseneck arm in nice and firm, it is long and has a great reach. Next, the light itself -- it features 21 LED lights that surround the magnifying lens completely! They look like a Hollywood movie sign! (The comparable Mighty Bright lamp features only 12 lights.)

Dublin plugs into the wall... but also features a portable battery pack... that is NOT hidden way underneath in the hard-to-get-at base. Both the battery pack and the AC power adapter are also included. Super-compact... the box is a mere 10-1/2 x 15 x 4-1/4... the entire thing weighs only 7-1/2 pounds, and that 5-inch lens features the standard 1.75X magnification. The Dublin is super-duper loaded with great features, and those 21 LED lights will blow you away!!!!

The Dorset Table Top Magnifier Lamp -- click to see more The Dorset Table Top Magnifier Lamp by Craftlite
This is a WONDERFUL little lamp!!! Our second shipment has arrived and we are once again excited about this remarkable lamp!

It has a weighted base, and plugs in to regular wall outlet. You can see on the arm bends halfway up for adjustment. Then, where the lens meets the arm... THAT is a heavy-duty ball joint, so the lens swivels and turns *just how you want!* See the little flip-up lens cover? It stores safely in a sunny room, stays clean, and can't get scratched (by kitties or the cleaning lady) because the lens is covered when not in use. 4-Inch lens, 3-diopter magnification, with little 5X mag area.

BEST PART is the natural daylight balanced 12 watt circular tube bulb surrounding that lens. Your work area is so beautifully lit... you are going to be SO HAPPY! Also, really cool, is that the bulb is recessed around that lens on the bottom side, (and covered so little fingers can't fiddle!) so if you are in a darkish room, and the TV is on... nobody else in the room is bothered by the glare of your lightbulb on the TV screen... they can't see it! A sleek, petite thing, it comes right out of the box ready to plug in -- no assembly! Base measures approx 6-1/2 inches in diameter, arm reach is about 12 inches, I'm estimating weight at approx 3 1/2 pounds, available in white... (The lamp I took home to write words about did not go back to the The Silver Needle!!! It's really cool!)

Daylight Ultra Slim Lamp  -- click to see more Daylight 5 spoke floorstand Ultra Slim Lamp from Daylight Company

A WONDERFUL magnifying lamp option... once you try this... you'll never want to stitch under any other lamp again!!! Manufactured by Daylight Co, it features a light that is 'broad-spectrum' and delivers a true color that doesn't tease your eyes and confuse color.

The best part, however, is the glass, 7-inch, 3-diopter (1.75x magnification) lens. Absolutely incredible to work with... the lens is bigger than the standard 5-inch. Because of the 7-inch size, the lens is curved less, so your view has less distortion.

Available in white, the fully adjustable swing arm top features that wonderful light and lens, along with a fabric drawstring bag to cover and protect the lens, and a table clamp attachment. Absolutely wonderful... EVERYBODY has been so happy with this lamp... I'm pleased to recommend it to you! Please note: additional shipping charges may apply.

Miniature Vintage Pincushion
from Sudberry House
I've been seeing this little guy for some time, and finally ordered some for the shop. What a pleasant surprise they are! Sudberry House delivers a 2-3/4 x 4 x 1-3/4 inch box (it kind of reminds us of a tiny manger) with a design area on top of 2-1/4 x 3-1/2! Almost an inch deep inside, you can finish the top -- and still have a tiny storage area underneath the pin cushion lid.

I don't know what we'll put into ours yet -- probably a small Blackbird design... doesn't matter... this is just the cutest little thing! Look around for something small to stitch, the box/tray/(manger!) comes with the padded piece to mount needlework.

Kitty Needle Minder from Puffin & Company - click to see more Little Lambie Pie Needle Minder from Puffin & Company - click to see more Little Lambie Pie and Kitty Needle Minders from Puffin & Company
These are SO cute... handmade of copper, nickel and brass, these magnets would be happy on your refrigerator OR your needlework -- keeping track of needles and threaders.

Smaller companions to the Puffin's Thread Separators, each has a pair of those super-duper strong micro-mini magnets attached to their backside, so they perch anywhere a magnet can! They're approx 1 x 1-2 inches in size... very nicely done.

Hand Made & Distressed Hornbook Frame - click for more Mini Thread Organizing Paddle Hornbooks
These are the CUTEST! Featured on Needlemade's Black Cat and Priscilla's Pocket's From Every Mountainside designs... this small paddle doubles as your frame and thread organizer. Measuring only 3 x 6 overall... it features 4 holes for threads... and a charming *chunky* design statement. Each is hand-made, and available in various woods... our selection varies in color.

LOTS of personality with these, find anything small to mount. Simply cut a board, wrap needlework around it, trim with a bit of cord if you wish, and you're finished. Just an ENDEARING little wood piece!

Miniature Wooden Hornbooks! -- click to see a more Miniature Wooden Hornbooks!

Here are two small wooden cut-outs that mimic the shape of antique hornbooks, which were used in the olden days as an alternative to a textbook in school. Papers and lessons were attached to these little 'paddles', the handles tying to students belts and such, for easy transport to and from school. Stitch something small and mount onto these.

You can have the handle at the top -- makes a cute area for an ornament hanger loop. You can have the handle at the bottom... and make a tiny sampler to display on it! They'd make fun tree ornaments, they're neat tucked inside a pretty sewing case. They'd be pretty framed in a needlework-themed shadow box... basically, there are tons of things you could do with these. No specific designs call for these... just find something cute in your stash!

Tiny one measures 1 x 1. Small one's paddle area measures a mere 2-1/2 x 2-3/4, handle is another 1 inch. Larger hornbook measures 4-3/4 x 3-1/4, with a handle of 1-1/2 inches. Too darn cute!

Julia's Stitching Frame Julia's Stitching Frame Julia's Stitching Frame from Big Island Woods
This is a wonderful new stitching frame hand-made by one of our customers, Julia, along with her brother! It is so simple, so uncluttered, and SO EASY to assemble and use! You get two side bars -- approx 3/4 x 2 x 14 in size. See the three holes? See the screws on them -- and the four little scalloped black finger knobs? You get 2 roller bars.

Don't panic to learn that you use that blue painter's tape (it's low adhesive... and a sample piece is included with the frame) to attach the edge of your fabric to the bars. The bars fit into the holes of the side bars, you use the super-easy-to-grab scalloped knobs to tighten those bars around the rods... roll the bars to tighten... and you are ready to stitch!

You can adjust your stitching area because of the holes on the sides, and you can even bring in your sides a little if you want. Actually very lightweight, the whole things weighs less than 1-1/2 pounds and it breaks down to the four sticks and knobs to fit into a cotton drawstring pouch (made by Julia's Mom, included.) Nice and smooth, NOT a messy contraption to use... easy to carry, I think you'll be very pleased with this!


Q-SNAPS
Cool little gadgets, Q-Snaps are INDISPENSIBLE! They are a very lightweight frame, designed to hold your needlework fabric tight, and straight on the grain...for neater and easier stitching.

There are several sizes available... and each set in interchangeable with the others... but the newest is this teeny little one, which is pictured. Sometimes you just need a LITTLE something! Hard to decide on the best combination of sizes!!! Available are:

Baby Q-Snap

Kind of a handy little wrap, this is a simple, Plain-Jane blanket to wrap around your Q-Snap frame, to keep the fabric clean and tidy! Instead of handling your needlework fabric so much,and running the risk of soiling it, this little elastic fabric band just tucks around all... ZIP-ZAP!

Offered in several different sizes to fit our most popular Q-Snap frame sizes, colors of cotton fabric vary. The 8 x 11 is not a packaged Q-Snap Frame size... you make that one by mixing your sides from the 8 and 11 inch frames.
