Crystal Snowlady Mouse and Blizzard Needle Slide from Just Nan
Just Nan's newest tiny mouse ornament is a companion to last winter's Frosty Chillingsworth Mouse. She is stitched on white 32ct linen, and finishes a petite 1-1/2 inches in size! She's wearing a sparkling snowflake hat and pretty pink scarf.
Her winter sweater dress features lavishly beaded and sequined snowflowers... well however LAVISH one can get on a cute little petite 1/2-inch dress! That same dress also features bluebirds stitched over one perched in tiny fir trees!
Chart includes beads, silver tail, Nan's signature button base, sequin flowers, more sequins and pearls... and pins for her arms!
At right, she is shown perched atop Nan's Pink Ice Cube. She ships to us February 1st. (If you are on Nan's Ornament Auto-Ship from us - she'll magically appear in your mailbox a few days later!)
Blizzard Needle Slide
Nan's latest tin needle case, this one features frosty snowflakes garnished with holographic stars against a deep blue background. Top of slide 'slides' open and closed, and the magnet inside keeps needles securely inside!
Cupid's Chocolate Shoppe... Our January 2020 Secret Needle Night Kit
Our January Secret Needle Night design is ready for Valentine's Day! We made a little chocolate shoppe complete with yummy treats and lace curtains in the windows. Velvet, Pearl and Fyre Werks metallic ribbons, a very quick stitch this month.
The complete kit contains the chart, 18ct linen, novelty threads, needles and beads... and even a recipe! Mona's optional finishing kit will transform your 3-1/2 x 7 stitched piece into either a rectangular or drum-shaped stand-up (and you get those cute little pins stuck in there either way)!
Honey Bunny Sampler
from Artful Offerings
Thoughts of Spring in the air already? Artful Offerings has a sweet new piece that might make that easier right now! Ms Honey Bunny is stitched on 30ct Weeks Linen color of hand-dyed linen with various shades of hand-dyed flosses. She finishes approx 8 inches square. Can you find the four-leaf-clover hidden in the pic?
Just a fun piece, you get a little graphic texture from the diamond shapes on the rabbit... wouldn't this be fun stitched with Gentle Art's Simply Wool threads?
Walk on the Beach and Charity for All from Erica Michaels
The newest Erica Michaels releases are here.
Bathya 1680 Sampler
from Hands Across The Sea
Wow... this is an incredible sampler... stitched so that it is reversible - front to back! Stitched over two and three threads, it finishes 7 x 24 on 40ct. Not for a beginner, probably not an intermediate stitcher either, this chart is INTENSE!
Nicola's charts are huge in here, great stitch diagrams, actual-sized pics of the actual stitches... the booklet itself is gorgeous! Nicola has 5 pages of history and information about the sampler and what was happening in the world in the 1860's... a fascinating read!
You could always get the chart now, add it to your stitching bucket list... and then maybe start with one of the motifs and make a single pin cushion. Then, get adventuresome and make a companion... then maybe tackle the sampler!
Kind Words & Peace Band Sampler from Heartstring Samplery
Beth Twist has a couple of new charts that have arrived in the shop.
Presenting the Fragments in Time 2020 Series: Shaker Virtues
from Summer House Stitche Workes
Beth Ann Seal has released teaser pics of her first two (of eight) coordinating pin cushion designs releasing in 2020, that will make up her set of Fragments in Time. Due to arrive in late January, the set begins with Harmony and Serenity. Stitched on 32ct Flax Linen with a really unusual and pretty color palette of hand-dyeds, each matching cushion is trimmed with Lady Dot Chenille trim in licorice color. You can join all 8 designs together inside Beth Ann's freebie border chart (that is coming to her website), or make the individual cushions.
Threads needed for all are: Weeks Dye Works Lichen (3), Hunter (3), Flatfish (2), Blue Jeans (2), Gunmetal (4), and 3 skeins of Classic Colorworks Barn Door. One pack of the chenille will trim all pillows, and all are backed with Weeks hand-dyed wool of Red Pear. Future cart shipments will be March 2020 for #3 and 4, late May 2020 for #5 and 6, and late July for #7 and 8.
Mill Hill's NEW Perforated Paper - Amazing Gray!
Wow... we opened our new e-mail and thought - Cool! A neat, new, exciting color of paper. (We have 36 now... so really need another one to keep track of!) But we always love new stuff... and new paper color #37 matches DMC 644 - so it's actually a VERY welcome addition to the Mill Hill collection of perf paper!
Shiny metallics, painted finishes, some that resemble hand-dyed fabrics... there is a color of 14ct perf paper for everything! See the whole collection on our Mill Hill pages!
Mill Hill's 2020 Button & Bead Kits Arrive This Week!
I know there are hundreds and hundreds of these fun stitched and beaded designs from Mill Hill - but here are more, and everybody loves them! Presented in full kit format, you get the chart, DMC flosses, all the beads, the 14ct perforated paper, needles and a ceramic button for embellishment. Finishing 5 x 5, you can frame the paper stitched versions. If you substitute fabric, like we do, they make charming little doorknob or cabinet-pull hangers. You can make block stand-ups for a windowsill... or stick a magnet on the back of them, and garnish your office filing cabinet!
This season, we have a new Main Street business - a florist. Baltimore Oriole joins the Wren, Hummingbird and Swallow they have introduced from previous seasons. There is a white orchid - it goes with the Hydrangea, Geraniums, and Violets that are already out - and that peacock is pretty striking too! It's a fun collection!
The Little Spring Bouquet 2020 Kits from Mill Hill
Here are the smaller ornament-sized designs by Mill Hill for Spring 2020. Finishing only 3 x 3 - just as detailed as the larger designs - you get the same 14ct perforated paper, all the flosses and beads, and usually a tiny brass charm or Mill Hill Treasure to embellish. Literally hundreds of these still in production; you can see most of them cascading down our Mill Hill pages.
Complete kits, they continue - year after year - to be great values and really fun to stitch. We do ours on the supplied perforated paper, then back them with sticky felt. Cut them out - around the stitching - with cheap, crummy scissors. (The paper dulls them and the felt gunks them up - so don't use any scissors you care about!) Then, use them as magnets or ornaments. We used to get pin backs in the older kits - those babies would go through the laundry with that sticky felt on the back - and come out totally undamaged! Always cute... I love that little gumball machine!
from With Thy Needle
Due in the shop the second week of January, Valentine's Day and St Patrick's Day Hoopla designs will round out this cute set of 7 holidays!
Joining Easter, 4th of July, Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas... Brenda's 3-inch designs make perfect pin cushions, and have been shown mounted inside 3-inch wooden hoops as well. All presented as charts, they've all been cute and quick to stitch.
We Built a Snowman Globe from Bent Creek
This is the 2020 Annual Snowglobe design by Elizabeth and Marsha. (actually the 19th in their series!!!) Every year, we are treated to a snowglobe design stitched on 18ct linen with Pearl Cottons and flosses. We've had Eskimos, Gingerbread Houses, Skaters, Elves, Reindeer and Cozy Cabins... the Nativity, Polar Bears and Penguins... 19 different themes!
All kits, including the fabric, threads and chart. They all finish about 5 x 5, are super fun and quick to stitch, and finish into festive holiday decorations!
The Flurries: Wintery Wonderfuls and Merry Moments from Bent Creek
These are small charts that each feature two SMALL designs that are supposed to be mini snow globes or those mini dome-globes (you know, the ones made out of plastic that are bitty!) The mini globes measure 24 x 25 stitches - so if you stitch them over one thread - they'll be an INCH in size.
The mini domes are 18 x 24 - even smaller! Look past the finishing a little, and imagine a little bit smaller, a little more subtle... stitched on 32ct linen. The designs are petite and detailed, very cute! Charted for DMC or hand-dyeds.
Valentine's Day is right around the corner... and Heart in Hand is Ready for It!
These are due in the Shop the week of January 6th.
Aunt Amy's House
I think this was released by La D Da in 2016 - that's the date on the sampler. We have a shop model of it, and when we went to the website the other day to look it up, we discovered it was never ON there! It's really charming... so we need to pay attention!
Stitched with DMC and Weeks hand-dyed flosses on 32ct Parchment linen, it finishes approx 9-1/2 x 11-1/2. The house is cool, the alphabet is pretty, the border is balanced, dump the date and put in your family name instead! (Lori won't be upset!) It's lovely!
HellofromLizMathews - 1999 Releases by Elizabeth's Garden Revisited!
Here are 4 charts by Liz Mathews - She'd published them 20 years ago - but if you missed them then, here they are now! Presented as charts, coded for DMC. All finishing in the 4 or 5 x 8-inch range on 32ct, they're charming!
Do some Satins in the grassy areas of Night Time and Bee Kind. Do some Algerian Eyes or Rice stitches in the 'landscape' of Nantucket. Add some antique-colored beads to Pennsylvania Bird. All four of these are petite and organized... specialty stitches or threads would look great on them!
Baby It's Cold Outside!... a Hand-Embroidered Dish Towel
Oh, we have a darling winter-time dish towel kit that is right in season! Some mittens, a few snowflakes, and a little cup of hot cocoa, such a cute kitchen towel to make your kitchen a happy place! Bareroots has a whole year of cute little dish towels that feature easy backstitch embroidery on them... and we have them all ready to go!
Along with the 17 x 27 cotton dish towel, you get the actual-sized needlework pattern, flosses and rik-rak trim for the ends.
WE now have the coolest stuff to help you transfer your designs, too... see below!
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!
from Stitch N Needs
You have several months to work on this little guy before next Christmas! Stitch count on this is 82 x 93 - so it finishes about 5 x 6 on 32ct Natural, and it is stitched with DMC and Weeks Dye Works threads.
A new design by a new designer from Australia - Tinmalar Win. We think it's charming!!!
Holly Days Collection
from Shannon Christine Designs
Shannon Christine has a set of 5 designs, all are titled after Christmas songs. Stitch them individually or joined and surrounded with the border included in the package. (See pic at right.) You'll recognize the songs, and enjoy the swirly font and floating snowflakes everywhere.
Stitch this on something darker (a gray or brown or natural) rather than lighter to catch all that white... and maybe add some opalescent thread to make it sparkle a little?
The entire piece measures 152 x 118 - which would be 10 x 7 on 32ct. Not real big, but pretty charming! We gathered all the charts in the set together, and printed the border chart - including it all together for you!
Thanksgiving Greetings and Winter Wonderland from Hinzeit
We're way past Thanksgiving... and it took me all this time to finally get these two charts through our doors! By Hinzeit, these are two seasonal 'greetings' just like so many others we have had in the shop for years! Our wall of Hinzeit models is happy to have two additions!
Both finish (like all the rest) about 3 x 13 in size. GREAT color, nice bold design style, each comes with an embellishing charm. Consistently popular designs, presented as charts... lots of other choices on our Hinzeit page.
from Val's Stuff
Val's Stuff has a pair of snowmen ornaments worked on 14ct perforated paper that can hang around after Christmas and stick around till your snow melts! Presented together in one pack... you get both charts, both pieces of perf paper and black felt backing.
You'll need some DMC from your stash. Both finish approx 4 x 4, and look great just perched on your kitchen windowsill - they have such bright colors in them!
Pop's Filling Station & Peppermint Parlor
from Country Cottage Needleworks and Little House Needleworks
Little House and Country Cottage Needleworks have both sent more parts to their on-going Christmas Villages...
Charming New Designs from Madame La Fee
All the way from France, even though her instructions are written in French, you can always read the DMC floss numbers and match them to the symbols! All 4 of these finish about 12 x 12 on 16/32ct fabric... our shop models of some of her other things are generous in size and really lovely.
On the Village scene, you can stitch just that square take-out of the church. The bear on the NOEL piece is about 45 x 45 stitches and the locomotive on there is about 30 x 45. Very do-able as ornaments, her shading is really nice. The Vin de France and Souvenir de Paris charts could be special remembrances from past trips!
Special Delivery and En Route Pour Noel from Les Petites Croix de Lucie
Oh we love these two designs by Les Petites Croix de Lucie... she calls them her "Vintage Collection." Absolutely charming, she has great shading in these, which makes them all the harder to stitch!
The girl (108 x 140) has 26 different shades of DMC, then blended needles of 8 more colors, the backstitch is all done all over the place - not following the horizontal and vertical chart lines.
Santa (108 x 140) has 32 shades and only 6 blended needle colors!
So... you either like doing that, or hate it, but wow, either way, the designs are awesome! (You could always Decopage the cover pics on something! That is REALLY CHEATING, but it's fun to think about!)
from The Workbasket
This is a set of 4 geographical samplers by The Workbasket. I think the motifs in each are really cute and unique, and offer something DIFFERENT to stitch! The chart contains the four 42 x 70 designs.
Woods has a little fox in it. Mini Desert has a roadrunner a snake, cactus and I think a scorpion! Mini Bay has a mermaid, pirate ship and a little octopus, and Mini Mountain has an eagle, moose and big brown bear! Might be fun to stitch for your cabin by the water or the mountains!
Merry Christmas Pin Pillow and Ho Ho Ho Santa Drum
from Dames of the Needle
Dames of the Needle's Elizabeth Ann Talledo has released two really neat charts that deserve a look! They are both the same size - finishing approx 3-ish by 12 inches on 32ct - and she has finished them into long, skinny pillows or cute little stand-up circular drum shapes. I need you to look beyond the cover pics a little... they simply don't do these justice. Both are stitched with only one color of thread - and meant to contrast the color of the background fabric.
Merry Christmas (taupe on red) features an old-fashioned font with a Merry Christmas greeting, and a bird nestled in evergreens. Snowflakes glisten in the background.
Ho Ho Ho (navy on natural) is Santa in his sleigh being led by flying reindeer! You have CHOICES here with thread and fabric colors, thread counts.... everything!
The designs are charming and classic just the way they are... but WOW... add some metallics! Change the color combinations! Vary the finishing! Very nice... you should probably get both charts, because we can't choose the favorite one around here!
from The Tralala Collection
Oh, I think this is a charming picture, because I love the little line of reindeer! Stitched with Gentle Art hand-dyed cottons, the stitch count is 152 x 66, so approx 9-1/2 x 4 on 32ct. You can see that she's stitched those deer in vertical rows - it looks like they have on blankets!
Anyway, notice the soft colors, that this design appears to have 3 sections. Stitch the Santa by himself, or the church and trees, or even just that little row of deer!
The 2020 Needle Travel Mania Guide is here.
A very cool little 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 x 1-1/4 inch thick directory, this is a comprehensive listing of over 5000 quilting/knitting/stitchery shops all across the US. Alphabetized by state, there is a roadmap of each state with each shop bullet-marked on the map. Not all shop listings have all their shop information - but you have enough here to check out websites, or call ahead and find out of they'll be open... what specifically they carry... all sorts of good info that makes a stitching road trip really fun.
The maps let you figure out how close you are really coming to some of the shops - so you don't miss a good one. If you're in the car a lot - this is for YOU! We sell bunches of these every year!
Some December Winter Treats from Shepherd's Bush
Chalk Full #4 - Snowy
from Hands On Designs
The next 'seasonal Mason jar' design, Snowy, is on the way to us. My favorite isn't the jar design... it is always the bonus pin cushion Cathy includes!
Stitched on any charcoal-colored fabric (there are several count options available on the market) these will all finish approx 4 x 6. Cute in a little chalkboard frame! The pin cushion features Lady Dot ribbon trim and Just Another Button Co Pins - both trim and pins are available from us separately.
Enjoy the flavor of the season, the cute finishing, with a little less stitching! We expect to ship out our auto-ships late that week.
Frosty's Night Out from Blackbird Designs
Barb and Alma's latest leaflet features Barb's charming vision of a cheerful Frosty Snowman! He is stitched on Murky hand-dyed linen by Picture This Plus, and measures just 4-1/2 inches in size. You can make him into a perky drum shape, or a flatter pin cushion shape, nothing is set in stone.
The book includes, though, a super cute paper mache' HAT BOX finishing treatment. The box comes from Hobby Lobby (# given in the book), and Blackbird supplies pictures and finishing details to make that cute finish. We love the colors of Weeks hand-dyeds in here, we love that little Frosty face... just all of this!
Let it Snow Music Sewing Set from Mani Di Donna
Simona has designed another darling music box. The three-piece set begins with a scissor case. Included with the chart is a gorgeous beaded fob and pearl beaded handle for the case. Next, there is a stitched needlebook to match the round box.
THEN... you stitch the Santa and sleigh design that wraps into a 3-inch-ish diameter box. The tree on top is made of wool, it is the lid for the box, and it spins around when the music is playing.
Want to see it play?
Inside the box, there is an old-fashioned cranking-handle musical movement (not one of those icky electronic ones!)Stitched on Weeks 32ct Cocoa Linen with DMC flosses, the chart has lots of finishing and assembly photos for all the pieces. So, included with the chart, you get the musical movement and the two beaded decorations for the scissor case.
A Merry Christmas Samplerfrom La-D-Da and Primitive Merry Christmas Pillow from Abby Rose
Newest Reprints by Prairie Schooler
Tons of Fun from Heartstring Samplery
Beth Twist has been releasing all sorts of unique and creative designs these past several weeks.... float your mouse over the individual images to see their names.
Christmas the Cross Eyed Cricket Way with Sophia's Scotties and Over The River!
Vicki Hastings continues to deliver us the most charming designs... her first needlework market (to be a designer) was in September of 1983, and it was MY first market as a new cross stitch shop - I was checking out the industry to open the Silver Needle! Up to books #347 and 348... she draws ALL of her designs, colors them, and THEN charts them to dazzle!
New Treats from The Blue Flower... Sleeping Bee & Winter Valentine
Jeannine McGowan has another glorious bee design to companion her Quilting Bee design... this one is kind of a 'winter' bee... it has snow on the hive and evergreens loaded with berries in the background. Stitched on 40ct linen, it will fit into an 8-inch round opening, and is stitched with both Gentle Art and Weeks hand-dyed cotton flosses. Soft buttery golds, winter whites and luscious dark evergreen colors.
Winter Valentine features two love-birds in the snow. Cardinals, add the mistletoe if you want! This measures 105 x 77, so would be about 5 x 7 on 32ct. It's stitched with regular DMC floss - but two different colorways are presented, as well as the sweet sentiment!
from Shakespeare's Peddler
Here is Shakespeare's Peddler's newest reproduction sampler - Hannah's Sampler. Theresa found the original in terrible condition, but could tell she loved the leafy border and the charming farmhouse - next to the brick wall - covering that little babbling brook. Very pretty colors of reds and greens in here, the row of diamonds below the alphabet are done with Rice Stitch. Those bricks in the wall and the waves in the water are all loosely placed in the original... so neat... you can do that too. Stitched on 36ct Weeks Straw Linen with silks (Gloriana, Needlepoint Inc and Au Ver a Soie) or DMC, it measures a generous 16-1/2 x 15-1/2 in size.
Teresa came to Tulsa for a weekend retreat in our new 'She Shed' Stitching Room... and presented this sampler as our Silver Needle exclusive. (Our class included three small take-out designs from this charming piece... so the weekend was really a treat.) 'Raggamuffin #3' refers to her third antique reproduction piece that came from a really ratty, mangy, and damaged sampler that just needed a little love! So... Hannah's original sampler as well as her reproduction now hang happily at our shop... and she'll be here for years to come!
Do You Hear, Hark & I Saw from Shepherd's Bush
Do you remember these? Here are three re-prints of Shepherd's Bush's 2011, 2013 and 2014 ornaments that appeared in the Just Cross Stitch Annual Ornament Issue Magazine! This means that you might already HAVE these charts... but then there is the question of FINDING them... in case of the need to stitch!
Presented on 5 x 8 card stock, each has a little clay embellishment that we are including (you probably never got those as they released.) Each is stitched on 30ct Weeks Parchment and finishes approx 3 x 3.
Antoinette Curera 1862
from Reflets de Soie
Isabelle's newest reproduction sampler is here... I just cannot pass these by! Measuring 388 x 304 in stitch count, it will finish approx 21 x 19 on 36ct, and can be stitched in silks or DMC cotton floss. The border is glorious... the flowers are all the same... but not one IS the same!
The 5 motifs in the center consist of an elegant swan, two country cottages, and a pair of lavish florals. But your eye is drawn right to that center bird! Not for every house, not for every stitcher... but wow... all of Isabelle's like this one are stunning! Presented as the leaflet with the option of silks presorted and tied on Reflet's pretty thread cards.
Punch Needle & Primitive Stitcher Magazine - the 2019 Christmas Mega-Issue

Upcoming Releases from Hands On Design: Due in the Shop November 25th
Your 2020 Needlework Enthusiast's Book of Days is here!
By Needlework Press, these are just the neatest journals to have and use! Each year (only till December-ish - she sells out of these every year by then), Vicki presents a 12-month calendar embellished with a few needlework motifs and lovely thoughts. The emphasis is on the two facing pages of each month.
Each day has space for you to record stitching hours, keep track of your stitching events and trips calendar, or maybe your excursions to the best needlework shops! You can keep your shopping and wish lists in here... you can store notes about what your friends want... future stitching schedule (some of you DO have a definite stitching/finishing goal schedule!) Log addresses for websites and contacts for friends, keep track of projects and their start and finishing dates, ANYTHING you want to remember about your stitching!
Have you tried the new Ball Point Needles? Now Available in #26 and #28, Too!
By Sullivans, these little babies are really DIFFERENT! They actually have a tapered tip, with a tiny ball point on the end. That little ball glides over your fabric threads and goes right into the holes easier than a regular tapestry needle! Then, because of the funny-shaped tip... if you want to use them to rip out stitches, that tip grabs your threads very easily!
Offered in packs of 2 needles, each... we had only the #24's, but #26 and #28 have now arrived. Get a pack, see what you think!
Away We Go
from Country Cottage Needleworks
This is super cute! Nikki's newest, this is worked on 32ct Chalkboard Black fabric. There are quite a few dark charcoal and black-ish fabric options on the market now... so we can find you something that you can SEE on... don't be deterred by this dark background.
Finishing 8 x 6 on that 32... this is coded for DMC and Classic Colorworks floss. I love that little Santa on there! Wouldn't he be cute stitched with just the words below and made into a little drum?
Jim Shore Pint-Sized Figures Ornaments
Artist Jim Shore - presented in Cross Stitch - via Mill Hill. We have six new ornament kits... each finishes approx 4 inches tall. Charted by Mill Hill, they are stitched with DMC floss on 14ct perforated paper and feature smatterings of Mill Hill glass beads for a little sparkle.
Something for everyone... choose the Santas, snowmen or the kitty and puppy! We like these paper pieces because they do not weigh down the tree branches. You can hang them on the very tips of the greenery so they can be seen. Orrrr... try attaching them to a wreath, that's another cute way to display and enjoy!
The 2019 Shepherd's Bush Christmas Stocking - Parker's Stocking
Parker's Stocking features a shepherd boy on it, along with his snowman buddy that has a fun, striped top hat. Tiny snowmen, a sleepy little village and Santa in his sleigh are the featured rows accenting the main design.
Like all the rest, 18ct linen, #5 Pearl Cotton, and his cool packet of special charm embellishments. You will need both the 12 skeins of Weeks hand-dyed pearl along with the 5 skeins of DMC Pearl. (Have you ever switched the row motifs between stockings? Everyone likes that Santa and reindeer row... you could insert THAT row into one of the other stockings you know! Shake it up a little!)
Sugarplum Fairy Mouse & Embellishments
from Just Nan
Expected in around the middle of November, this year's Gingerbread Mouse comes straight from the Nutcracker ballet on tiny gold wings. Sugarplum Fairy Mouse wears a pretty hearts and flowers costume embellished with white pearl and gold crystal beads plus touches of Moonstone #4 Braid. Her headpiece is a combination of 2 pearls and a star, and she carries a star-studded flower wand tied with a wisp of rose floss.

Cuore d' Angelo
from Cuore e Batticuore
Look at this precious group of little angels! 5 Girls and 1 boy, each one has different hair, different wings, and a different outfit, but they all have the same charming face, size and shape.
Stitched on 36ct Natural with only 8 different shades of DMC floss... each finishes a little under 3 x 4.
The actual-sized heart-shaped finishing template is included... and I think that the striped cord that is shown is available at Hobby Lobby!

Three New Designs from Jeannette Douglas Designs
Madame Chantilly for Halloween and Christmas!
Gosh, these designs are cute! We struggle with great pictures of the stitching though, because the covers are lovely, but pale in color. You'll be able to see them a lot better if you click through, and then click on the individual images to see the larger versions.
Seven New Designs from Brenda Gervais offrom With Thy Needle!
Christmas Critters from Rachel's of Greenfield
The 2019 set Felt Embroidery Ornaments by Rachel's of Greenfield are here! This year's set features forest animals on small 'woolfelt' mittens and stockings. Each ornament measures about 3 x 4, and is done with small pieces of the felt that you buttonhole stitch together. The complete kit contains the actual sized cutting templates, cutting layout info, threads and embroidery instructions to make all 6 ornaments in the pic.
You can finish them as open mittens and stockings if you wish - that way Santa has more things to fill! We have lots of other cute ornaments sets available - make sure to check them out. Always favorites for an old-fashioned Christmas tree!
Bling Tree Sampler
from The Victoria Sampler
Oh wow... this is a cool, old-fashioned tree! Thea designed it with childhood memories of her family's glitzy trees every year... the only thing we aren't getting is that lovely pine aroma! First, stitch the tree - in three different green shades of silk. Next, add the words to O Christmas Tree and all those fun specialty stitches to the background - if you want to. Third, decorate your tree with all the fun trinkets, beads, sequins and buttons supplied in the accessory and silk pack. (Packet contains silks, perle cottons, metallic braids, beads, sequins, sequin flowers, buttons... quite a bit of stuff!)
Thea tells you to decorate your tree whatever way YOU want to... and you might have some special charms or buttons left over from something else that need to be included. Stitched on 28ct, the entire piece finishes just a bit over 6 x 8. The model is on Clay, but lots of other neutral colors would work well. The finishing treatment on the leaflet cover is a flat fold style, easy to store from year to year without taking up a lot of space. Complete finishing instructions (with 10 pics) are included, as well as the stitch diagrams for the fun decorations in the background. A super-pretty little piece, it's just enchanting! Leaflet runs $14.50, Silk and Trinket pack is a little more 'festive' at at $85.
New Curly Girl Kits from Mill Hill
"Witty & Whimsical." Everyone loves the Curly Girl artwork! Mill Hill has the cross stitch license for them... so we get charming needlework kits full of DMC floss and Mill Hill beads. Each is stitched on 28ct linen, and finishes about 7 inches square.
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.
Un Pupazzo di Neve per Te & Christmas on the Beach from Cuore e Batticuore
Oh gosh, these are two new and super-cute designs from Italy. Don't feel bad if you cannot pronounce the titles - we can't either! But we CAN understand the DMC numbers in the color key - and that's all you really need.
Joyeux Noel or Merry Christmas from Jardin Prive
This is a charming design THAT YOU CAN STITCH IN ANY COLOR YOU WANT! Worked with one color of your choice (hand-dyeds do really well with these kind of designs), on whatever fabric you want, you can really change the overall effect of the finished piece. Think about natural linen and working this ALL in opalescent, white and gold metallics? What about navy fabric, with all those metallics, or solid shades? How cute to put everything in its proper colorway!
The design is enchanting... you have a lot of possibilities making this your own! Notice they have charted a Merry Christmas greeting for the topper row as well.
New Arrivals for Halloween and Christmas from The Drawn Thread!
Cynthia has been busy with a trio of new things... two larger designs that are motif medleys, and another smaller botanical.
Beaded Holiday Ornaments from Mill Hill
Mill Hill's new bauble ornaments for 2019 are here! Stitched on 14ct perforated paper, each of this year's designs is a slightly different shape, but all finish the same charming 2 x 3 inches. Completely filled with glistening Mill Hill glass seed beads, they are really fun to stitch and look great on your tree.
I especially like the fact that they weigh basically nothing, so if you are a 'real tree person' you can hang these on the tippy-tips of your branches, and they won't weight down your tree! Presented in complete kits of 14ct paper, DMC floss, needles and Mill Hill glass beads.
The 2019 STICKS are here from Mill Hill
Whimsical designs by STICKS, these are super-colorful and cheerful. By Mill Hill, each is presented as a kit of 14ct perforated paper and loads of DMC floss, along with a few Mill Hill glass seed beads for design garnish.
They all finish 7 x 7, and the frames for them are available as special order. If you are a fabric-lover instead, choose your favorite 14 or 28ct - the correct size for your beads.
Five New Miniature Knotwork Pieces by Teresa Layman
Presenting an enchanting collection of 2, 3 and 4-inch 'rugs.' Each of these are ONLY one strand of DMC floss wrapped ONE time around your needle to make a bitty French Knot. Worked from a line drawing on the fabric - like Punch Needle Embroidery - you are simply 'painting by number' with your tiny knots - tucking them in there next to each other! It sounds awful(!), but these are actually fun to do!
They are presented as the line drawing on the special fabric, and small needles. You'll need DMC floss from your stash. (We had Teresa to Oklahoma years ago for a class on this... and maybe with our new classroom space... it's time for another visit!) Anyway, most frame these... but if you are a doll house lover, you might want them as rugs in one of your houses. (Butttt..... if you start one, and never finish it... make the part you did into a teeny scissor fob. You'll love it for life!)
Did you know Teresa has SOME of her designs charted for Cross Stitch? We've re-organized her page a little and highlighted the Cross Stitch offerings much better than before. She has delightful designs, charts are huge and clear... super cute! When you visit her page, we now have boxes to click ont to take you to either the Knotwork or Cross Stitch!
Teresa Kogut has Five New Designs
Ms Teresa does things in both Cross Stitch and Punch Needle... here are my favorites of her new ones... looks like she's in a Holiday Mood!
Presenting Christmas 2019 - The Mill Hill Way!
Look at the new things coming for this season - Super cute and fun!
Snow Globes from Mill Hill
These are the small 3 x 3-ish inch kits that make perfect tree ornaments. This season we're getting a set of mini snow-globes! I'm not sure which one is the cutest!
Presented as the complete kits of 14ct perforated paper, chart, needles, floss, Mill Hill beads and a little charm. They will be awesome on your tree!!!
The Annual Santa Collection for 2019 - South American Santas from Mill Hill
This is our 21st Annual Set of these!!!!! (That means we now have 63 different International and Sporting Santas!) Every year, we are treated to these paper ornaments that finish approx 3 x 4 inches each. Santa-all-during-the-year! Each kit comes with the 14ct perforated paper, DMC floss and a few Mill Hill beads. If you notice... they all have loopy or fringey beards!
Anyway, these are always fun on your tree because they are lightweight and colorful. Nice to make as gifts for someone who's traveled to the places featured throughout the years or loves the various hobbies of Santa. All the other 20 years of ornaments are still available, and we have them ALL! (We have an Amazon Santa this year... only he isn't holding a shopping box or have a drone flying overhead!)
Presenting this Year's Set of Trilogy Kits from Mill Hill
For 2019 we have a set of 26 mini-ornaments that are perfect to make into an Advent Calendar or use to decorate a wreath. Finishing only 1-1/2 inches square... each of the three kits contains either 8 or 9 mini designs. Based on the size of the designs, we think these would be PERFECT for young or beginning stitchers. Lots of design options in each kit... lots of individual projects... lots of bang for your buck!
Presenting Annual 2019 Santa
from The Prairie Schooler
Even though Pam and Nancy have stopped designing their leaflets, they do design our favored Santas every year! This marks the 36th year! Same format, size colors and size... after 36 years, you know the drill.
MOST of the other Santas have been re-printed into leaflets of 4 assorted years... we have everything available that is currently in print... it is all pictured on our PS page and organized for you!
Welcome the Snow
from Blackberry Lane
Another darling design - two charts in this pack! Welcome the Snow is stitched on 36ct Picture This Plus's Twilight hand-dyed linen over TWO or ONE threads - you decide.
One of the snowmen has bird feeders with several wrens and cardinals. The other has lots of sizes of snowflakes - over one, no birds. 25 Shades of DMC, they look the same at first glance, but have a lot of subtle design differences. Just the cutest!
Earrings for Stitchers!
Check out these darling pierced earrings that are perfect for stitchers and seamstresses! Miniature buttons, scissors, spools and sewing machines... each trinket decoration on the earring is about 1/2 an inch in size!
Offered in gold-tone or silver-tone (based on the price I am sure they are not solid gold or sterling), one set includes two spools and two sewing machines. The other set includes the buttons and two scissors. You can mix and match them however you want... both sets come in the silver or gold colors. Wear a button and sewing machine if you want... scissors and buttons, scissors and spools... whatever... I'm sure Santa needs to know about these!
Yes, there's even MORE!
