The Duo Lights from Daylight - click to see more The Duo Lights from Daylight Company
Oh wow... this is a neat little light! It is LED and dims for 4 different light levels. It is SUPER lightweight, and comes as a table clamp, or stable standing light. (The floor version is due in at the end of May.) It has a cord... so not battery chargeable.

What makes it really neat is the light design itself... it is two little 10-inch long 1-inch round sticks that spread apart in the middle, so you can direct your light where-ever you want! (My first thought is having it on your table at a class - and both you and your friend get a light!) The design is such that the light is directed down... not right in your face. The on/off switches are just touch buttons at the ends of the light sticks.

The table version weighs just 1-3/4 lbs... (28 ounces) while the clamping one LESS THAN A POUND! The goose neck is covered in soft white plastic sheath, it looks so nice and smooth and clean. The clamp for that model is a SCREW clamp. It is not a pinch-grip thing... you don't have to squeeze it to death to get it to work. Right above the clamp base, you see a cylinder that is about 2 inches high... that is a 'screw'... so simply turn it to release the clamp, which can open as much as 2 inches!
I really like this light... no magnifier, though. Lightweight, VERY packable, clean, white, daylight balanced light... really, really nice!


Q-Snap 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:

How many times have you run your Q-Snap clamps through the dishwasher to shrink them tight again??? Here are new clamps to make life easier!

Replacements for broken or those loose-fitters, the 5-3/4 size fits your 8 x 8 frame sides and the 8-1/2 fits the 11-inch sides! Each package contains 2 clamps of the same size. Just something we've added to our gadget wall!

Mini Stash 'n Store Trays - More Colors!
You may have seen the gigantic version of these in fabric stores... but these are HALF that size and measure in at a petite 2 x 4 x 1-1/4 inches in size! White plastic 'tubs' with a colored silicone lining... the little 'flower petal openings' in the silicone waves hold your 3-1/2 embroidery scissors, pens, larger needles, laying tools, even your glasses!!!

The soft silicone just nestles around anything you stick into these, but it pulls right out of the tub so you can wash it, (if you spill your Diet Coke in there by accident!) Just the most handy little table-top caddy, keeps everything right in one place, ready to grab!
Note: navy and gray are no longer color options.

The Gypsy Sit Upon - click for more The Gypsy Sit Upon
We think these are the COOLEST things! We haven't had them in stock for a few years, but found them again at Market! They are soft plastic pillows - 12 inches in diameter and 2-1/2 inches thick - designed to make you more comfortable when sitting for long periods (or short, for that matter!). Place one *behind your back* - upper or lower - which ever feels best for you. Then sit comfortably while stitching, quilting, reading, driving, surfing the net... whatever!

Softly inflated flexible disc (deep purple) prevents fatigue and reduces pressure on the tailbone. Helps relieve lower back pain, strengthens core muscles, and improves blood circulation. Nubby texture (see the little nibs all over one side???) allows cooling air flow and promotes improved blood circulation. Durable purple rubberized material remains soft and pliable... 'One Size Fits All!' Comes already inflated, will not deflate.

The smallest one is 8 x 10 x 2-1/2, medium one is 10-1/2 x 13 x 3-1/2, and the largest is 13 x 15-1/2 x 4. They're soft and lightweight, you can see through them, and they're cute - especially if you over-achieve and add some cute personalization stitching to them.

WOW, these are awesome-turbo-super-nice heavy-duty plastic zippered pouches! Made from that heavy clear plastic you find on purses and backpacks, each is trimmed with VERY heavy-duty bright and cheerful polyester 'canvas' fabric.

Our sets of three matching pieces measure 16 x 16, 12 x 13, and 6 x 8. The middle-size one holds a full-size Prairie Schooler leaflet! And the big one... wow! See? The big one at right is holding 6 boxes of Girl Scout Cookies!

SEE YOUR STUFF in these... each top zipper is heavy-duty black... the sizes are nice and roomy, and because of the way they are sewn, they expand quite a way out. Very Nice for a lot of different uses!

The Double Zippy Pouch -  click for more
The Double Zippy Pouch
We are in love with this new size of plastic zipper pouch. It measures 9 x 13-1/2 and features two zippered compartments.

The main side fits a standard Cross Stitch leaflet, while the smaller compartment that measures 5 inches high fits the smaller card designs.

Separate spaces for patterns, fabrics, threads or scissors... we think it's a great development!!!!


Colorful, Double-Compartment Mesh Pouches
Vinyl Project PouchesHey... these are COOL!!!!! Here's a set of 4 zippered nylon pouches -- 4 different colors, 4 different sizes, TWO pockets in EACH! Weighing *nothing* the Apple Green Baby measures 6 x 8. One side is the black mesh with the green back. You can see what's inside this pocket. Unzip the pouch to find ANOTHER zipper in there... open THAT for another nylon pocket -- cannot see thru that one! Next is the Navy Blue one -- 12-3/4 x 5-3/4. Then, Red-- 8-1/4 x 10, and finally the biggest -- the orange one, measuring in at 10 x 13.

These are very fun! Use 'em for stitching, make-up, scrapbooking stuff, school supplies, coupons, whatever!!! Sold as the set of 4 pouches - so you get one of each color and size!



These pouches are WONDERFUL organizing bags for your projects! A heavy weight and thread reinforced plastic, they are clear enough to be able to see which things you have inside of them! Choose from several sizes... they come in multiple colors. (Our shipments are assorted, so we will be sending you assorted colors as well.) All are pretty, light colors!

Mini Mesh Zipper Bags
This seems to be the 'year of pouches!' I found another size and style of zippered pouch to help organize your smaller needlework projects and tools. These little guys measure 5 x 8. They feature TWO pocketed compartments, and TWO zippered closures. I've taken a pic of my hand in each of the pockets... don't know if you can see the difference or not.

The front pocket is clear vinyl on the front. The middle 'wall' and back of the pouch is colored fine mesh. A really nice size for a small project, or just for scissors, candy and tissues! They're lightweight and super-handy to keep little things safe and 'locate-able' in your bigger bags!

An Invasion of Pin Cushions!
Oh my gosh, we are overwhelmed with CHARM around here! It's hard not to fall in love with all these little hand-made cuties! The cupcakes are topped with beaded and pearl sprinkles... the owls have the cutest little wooly feathers, the penguins have nice fat little behinds, and the piglets - with their pointed ears and curly little tails - are just the best peeking out from everywhere!

Each cushion is hand-made of various fabrics and embellishments. All (except the cupcakes) are filled with sand so they are 'heavy' to your hand. They nestle perfectly where-ever you set them. The cupcakes are in actual silicone baking cups and are a little lighter in weight, as they are filled with poly-fil. Asst fabrics and colors, we'll try not to choose duplicates in any style for you!
NOTE! You can click on each pinccushion image above and see a much larger image that will show you the color and pattern variations on them.

Fun New Hand-Embroidered Dish Towels from Bareroots
Oh gosh these are so much fun to stitch... you transfer on the design, and then just regular straight stitching with a few Lazy Daisies... and PRESTO... a pretty towel nobody wants to use!

But DO use them, they are nice towels, and they'll make you feel good! Towels come with the pattern to transfer on (use our Sulky Stick 'n Stitch transfer film), the flosses and rik-rak for the edge trims.

Stick 'n Stitch by The Sulky Co - click to see more
Stick 'n Stitch
from The Sulky Co
This is the COOLEST STUFF to transfer your designs for stitching (or punchneedle)! Basically, it is a rinse-away film that you COPY (as in 'Xerox!') your line drawing onto. Then STICK it (it's not real gummy or sticky - just clingy enough to stay in place) on your towel or whatever you are working on.

You stitch the design, then wet the 'film' and it disintegrates, leaving your stitching! You never have to trace a design ever again! We love it! The package comes with 12 - 8-1/2 x 11 sheets, plenty to make lots of cute towels!

The Bench
Footstool, The Bench from K's Creations -- click for a larger viewFrom K's Creations, this is a cool, collapsible foot stool that's just the right size for us stitchers! Raising your feet a little off the floor can take so much stress off your lower back... you'll be amazed! Easy to fold up and tuck into your tote bag, this smoothly finished oak stool measures just 5 1/2 x 11, and 5" high.

The legs fold up under it, and a fancy bolt fastens them in place, making a bundle that is only 3" thick! It takes 2 seconds to unfold... and is just the right size to tuck under your feet while you're stitching! Perfect for stitching weekends, traveling, whatever!


Serious Scrap Bags! - click for more Serious Scrap Bags! - click for more Serious Scrap Bags!
We've found a gal who is making generous-sized scrap bags for us!!! Assorted fabrics -- never the same ones twice. These feature an emery filling (8-ish ounces?) in the 4 x 6 top pillow, and a thread/chocolate holder bag that measures 6 inches in diameter, 6 inches deep, with a 4 x 4 inch bottom.

The little bag does not detach from the fabric tabs, but you won't lose precious needles and pins when you dump your trash. Perfect to hang off the edge of your stitching table or chair, we're glad to have these in a larger size again!


Uncle Bills Tweezers -- click to see a larger view. Uncle Bill's Tweezers
We love these tweezers! We've carried them for 30+ years. I thought I couldn't get them again, found a source, ordered 18, and received 18 UNITS of them - which was way more than I planned! SO... I mention them, because stock is 'really good' on them right now! These are very heavy-duty, compact, super-precise tweezers, with a super-sharp pointed tip.

Because they are less than 2 inches long you have really good control of them. They are wonderful for picking out threads, so every stitching bag needs a pair. Every cosmetic bag, kitchen drawer and bathroom cabinet would love a pair too! Perennial Favorites! $11 each, for this year's Superbowl Weekend Sale... they are 3 for $30... and the 20% Off treat will still apply! How cool is that?


Crushed Walnut Shells - click for more Crushed Walnut Shells
This is what everyone loves to stuff pin cushions with these days... crushed walnut shells... also known as LIZZARD LITTER! 100% Unscented and sanitized crushed walnut shells, they actually do sell this stuff in big bags in pet stores as liner for small animal cages. We have 12 oz bags of it, (approx 2-1/3 C) which will generally fill two or maybe three 4 x 4-ish pin cushions. (depends on how full you want them.)

It makes your fobs and pillows 'heavy to the touch' so they feel really good. It gives them a little relaxed weight. It is ground large enough so that it doesn't 'leak' out of seams. So... visit the pet store for a lifetime supply, or just get a bag or two of this... *enough is as a feast*


The Calendar Series from Buttermilk BasinWhite Emery
99% Pure Aluminum Oxide... this is a super-fine grain emery abrasive powder that is used to stuff pin cushions and scissor fobs. A beautiful, clean white color... it's a cleaner, brighter filler than the traditional grey-black emery previously in our market.

Offered in a 4-oz package... 4 Tablespoons-ish to me... along with the emery material... you are treated to a WONDERFUL history and explanation of emery! (Rubies and Sapphires are made from the same substance... since the middle of the 1500's, there has been a need for this abrasive substance to clean steel needles. An entire page of really interesting info about this historic product is included, and I really, really enjoyed reading it!

Anyway, this powder is super-heavy to your hand, and is generally used as a needle-cleaning agent. It feels really good in your hand... as it weights your tiny fobs and cushions perfectly! Get some for your stash, to use for neat cushions, fobs and special sewing cases!


Made With Love Charms - click for more *Made With Love* Charms
I found some neat little 3/8 inch heart-shaped charms that say *Made With Love* on both sides! Nothing elegant, they are cool, however, because you can attach one to absolutely every thing you stitch... sometimes beside your signature or initials, sometimes... just an added trinket appearing someplace unexpected.

Tiny, shiny dressings to accent the fact that you've hand-made something special -- complete with love -- I thought they were kind of fun! Packed in bags of 12 silver-toned charms, they're only $3.95 a bag... but they look like a million bucks on your finished creations!

Olde Fashioned Safety Pins
These are the coolest little safety pins -- they look antique to me! A 'Pear Shape' to them... they are a 'curiosity' to add to pin cushions and something unique to add to the inside of sewing cases.

Just 3/4 of an inch, each our assortments feature 2 each of 14 different colors and 4 each of black and bronze for a total of 36 little pins.

They're colorful, fun, different, and just plain NEAT! Loop a bit of ribbon or an old button on them, pin to a cushion... charming!


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.


Make sure you see what we have on page 2, 3 and 4! Sterling Silver miniature stitch charms, threaders, tweezers, beaded scissor fobs... just all sorts of things! In the interest of having the pages load faster for you, we've split our treasures onto two pages!
