Patriotic Parade from Petal Pusher
Here's the next season of the same darling farm animals all decked out for their annual parade! They are the same pig, cow, horse, sheep and chickens. Just like Halloween Hoedown and Holiday Hoedown... these little guys all come in individual charts, but can be stitched together.
Just the cutest, you'll love the names too: Uncle Ham, Moo-other of Freedom, Ewe Lil' Firecracker, Patriot Reins and Chicks on Parade! Stitched on 32ct Sand and coded for DMC, lots of places you could add metallics and beads if you want! This is one busy farmyard of animals!

New Designs by Hello from Liz Matthews
Mill Hill's 2021 Annual Charmed Santas (The 23rd Annual Set!) and Charmed Ornaments
More fun beaded and stitched ornaments for your tree this year... we've noticed that Mill Hill isn't using a lot of beads this year... we think COVID and supply are the issue! So... GET OUT your stash of old finished kits - seems nobody can toss those little leftover bags of extra beads - and rescue these with more beads!
Punch Needle & Primitive Stitcher Magazine - 2021 Summer Issue
We love this magazine! 98 Super-heavy and glossy colored pages (don't you just love opening these up, closing your eyes, and smelling that yummy ink and paper?1) packed with 13 Punch Needle projects and 12 Cross Stitch pieces. This issue's Vonnie Pfeiffer finishing section is an 8-page spread for 'mattress' pin cushion assembly.
Featured designers in here are Rovaris, Shakespeare's Peddler, Teresa Kogut, Blue Flower, Barbara Ana, Lindy Stitches, Stitching With the Housewives... the list goes on and on. Darling projects, full sized pics and templates, BEAUTIFUL pictures... everything with a summer or patriotic theme. Do not read this in the bathtub... you run the risk of dropping it in the water, and it's too awesome to get wet!
A Mighty Fortress
from Heartstring Samplery
Heartstring Samplery continues her Sunday Stitches Series of favorite and treasured church hymns. A Mighty Fortress is the 6th in the series of 12.
Offered singly - you can get which ever ones you want... or collect the still-being-published set of 12. The set - so far - is pictured on our inside pages... this one is a lovely addition! It can be stitched on just about anything, and uses hand-dyed flosses or DMC - your choice.
God Bless America, Bristol Berries II, Mermaid Crossing and Summertime Berries from Erica Michaels
Linda Stolz has 4 new releases...
Capodimonte Porcelain Pins
Found while cleaning our front cases! We have some GORGEOUS hand-made porcelain-topped pins by Capodimonte, that need to adorn just the right pin cushion! Completely handmade in Italy, the certificate that comes with them explains that they are 'produced in the laboratory of Porcellane Carusio and entirely made and hand painted by master craftsmen using traditional processing of Capodimonte porcelain and provisions of the Law 188/90 (Ceramics Artistic and Traditional) with colors called 'third fire' that by cooking to 780 Celsius ensures lasting stability.'
That's all a little hard to read, but just know that these elegant pins feature beautiful hand-made porcelain flower tops, each is unique and prettier than the last! Sets of 3 pins, they are all slightly different and one of a kind.
Patriotic Barn Trio
from Waxing Moon Designs
Waxing Moon has another trio collection of smaller designs - this time we have barns for the summer. Finishing about 4 x 5 on 30ct... they're pretty cute when you stitch them all and finish into a 3 or 4 sided triangle or cube stand-up. Takes less display space, and you still get to enjoy all of them at the same time.
Because of the saw tooth edging, they look like postage stamps... and would be perfect to work up on 14ct perforated paper... but even better - the NEW 18ct Paper!
from Fairy Wool in the Wood
Here is a fun design that is made up of 8 smaller insets. Stitched on 36ct Country Vintage Mocha Linen (any count will do) it finishes 8 x 12.
Coded for DMC, this is a perfect design to break up and finish into individual pin cushions for a fun basket or tray display. Super charming that way... you get glimpses of a seafaring family and life at the beach!
New Arrivals from Plum Street Samplers.
Paulette has been busy creating... so here are her latest new treats!
Christmas is Coming - According to Mill Hill! Our 2021 Annual Christmas Kits are here!
The Winter Series of the larger 5 x 5 designs offers a stuffed cookie jar - full of yummy baked treats; a bear with a exploding head (The Holidays can do that to you sometimes!); Santa totally wiped out on his couch on Christmas Night - I love the Big Dipper in the sky! Next is a winter bike scene - it's a challenge to ride a bike in the ice and snow... but it's does present a pretty picture! Christmas Break features a fun window scene, and Cafe Grande is the latest in their charming Christmas Village set of houses, businesses, and churches. We carry that entire line of Village kits... I think there are 2 dozen in the Christmas series, and a dozen each in the Spring and Fall Villages - and we have 'em all! These kits all include the chart, needles, DMC flosses, Mill Hill beads and a MH button, and they are all worked on 14ct perforated paper. Use the paper for our little sled ornaments if you want, and do these on 14 or 28ct fabric as an option.
The Smaller Winter Holiday Collection continues Mill Hill's hundreds and hundreds of 3 x 3 ornament designs. The kits come with a magnet backing so you can stick them on a filing cabinet or the fridge... but most cut these out around the edges and use them as Christmas tree Ornaments. Cute as can be, this year we have a rocking reindeer, a pretty snail-mail Christmas Card, a swirly tree, a puppy mailing his letter to Santa, a puppy paw - you might want to attach your doggie's pic to the back of this one... make it a momento, and a perky little fox. Each of these comes with the chart, paper, beads, a glass Treasure embellishment, the magnet backer, and DMC floss. Lots of fun to keep you stitching!
from Twin Peak Primitives
Smell the Sea and feel the Sky - just don't get sand in your stitching bag! This is kind of a fun piece by Twin Peak Primitives... I see three bands of design in here... so lots of possibilities. The top row features spools of thread with those shorebirds, bitty cabanas and the fishermen on them. Notice the clothesline there with the scissors and needles on it? (and the bitty swimsuit!) The crabs are super cute, and the row of whales down below just makes it a busy sea-scene.
Presented as a leaflet, the stitch count is 170 x 119 - so 10-1/2 x 7-/12 on 16/32ct, and it calls for regular DMC floss. Easy to add some hand-dyeds , you could do the crabs in metallic, or the tiny swimming fish... or add buttons here and there if your stash 'overfloweth!'
New Reprints from The Prairie Schooler
Fragments in Time for 2021: Tales From The Sea
from Summer House Stitche Workes
Here are small designs #5 and 6 in this year's Fragments Series. Beautiful brilliant colors of aqua, golds and brick reds, it's been a pretty set so far, with more to come.
You can see them all together, and download her freebie border chart to stitch them into one piece. Our auto-ship continues on these... so we can catch you up if you want them all!
Vintage Postcards from Sajou
We have assortments of needlework-related postcards to make into thread palettes! Our sets of 6 - 4 x 5-3/4 - stiff cardboard cards are all one-of-a-kind, and feature antique needlework ads and pictures of vintage needlework tools.
Just beautiful, punch holes on one edge and make thread cards... or just enjoy them as-is anywhere you want. Inside a sewing case is fun... they are framing-quality... you could frame a few. Include them in a needlework shadow-box display, you could always mail them to friends! They'd be pretty in travel photo collages... just don't decide they are 'too pretty to use!' Packs of 6 cards each... fun and unique... from Sajou of Paris, France.
The Kitchen Counter
from Hands On Designs
A new trio of smaller designs for the kitchen is coming from Hands On Design. Presenting in three single and separate charts, the first is titled *Lick The Bowl.* Cathy's promo says *Life is what happens at the kitchen counter... cooking, eating, visiting over coffee, and a bit of retro wisdom!*
Each design will measure 5 x 7, is stitched on 32ct Antique White (or 16 Aida), and uses good old regular DMC floss! (317, 415, 437, 760, 964, 992 and 2 of 350 will be needed for all the pieces.) You'll get parts of a bonus design with the trio of charts -- so when your set is complete -- you'll actually have 4 designs in all. Fun colors, fun subjects, the first one releases the second week of June, the others will follow mid July and mid august.

Stitching is My Happy Hour and Happy When Stitching

Choose one or both of these... they both get the message across!
Choose any fabric from your stash, grab either DMC's or handdyeds... each finishes about 3 x 7. Just for fun!
Craft Room My Love
from Cuore e Batticuore
This is such a cute little piece.... it needs to hang in your *Crafting Place of Honor!* There is a tiny hoop, cute pin cushions, a bitty sewing machine, scissors and skeins of yarn... If you're not into doing the whole piece, just pick out motifs and make little pin cushions out of them.
The entire stitch count is pretty big - 287 x 182 (18 x 11!) - so those smaller projects sound kind of good! Presented in a chart by Cuore e Batticuore, it calls for DMC flosses.
New Patrioics from Heartstring Samplery - Due Any Day!
from Barbara Ana
This is a wistfully pretty piece - obviously our girl has a head full of dreams - just like the title of the piece announces! Stitched on a deep blue fabric (or choose anything you like), it is all worked with DMC floss, and finishes approx 8-1/2 x 4-/12 on 32ct. (The Stitching with the Housewives girls dye a lot of this color - they use a RIT dye from the grocery store!!!)
Anyway, this design is fun... stitch it for the happy Dreamer in your life! I love everything about it!
Acts of Kindness Pinkeep
from Scattered Seed Samplers
Isn't this a sweet thing? A small 3-1/2 x 5 cushion, it is stitched with either DMC or hand-dyeds.
Gentle Art Simply Wools would be awesome on this as well - make those bunnies a little furry. Can you see that tiny bunny on there bringing the big rabbit the tulip? Offered as a chart.
*Anything is possible with sunshine and a little pink!* Isn't this a happy piece? It has a coconut drink with a little umbrella for that sunshine, palm fronds and a darling handmade polymer clay flamingo pin!
Paola's piece is stitched on a pale green fabric color using DMC flosses. It finishes approx 6 x 7 on 16/32ct, and the flamingo button is included with the chart! Happy sunshine with a little pink!
Brightly Colored Needle Tins!
Don't you just want to soak up all these colors? Magnetic Needle Tins complete with matching Stitch Dots... each measures 1 x 3 x less than 1/2 an inch.
Lids slide off... just a great way to store needles.
Presenting Red White & Bloom from With Thy Needle & thread
Brenda Gervais has released info about her next set of *seasonal smalls* - they companion Love Notes and Jelly Bean jubilee. Red White and Bloom includes a Lady Liberty, Uncle Sam, busy little bumbler bees, cheery sunflowers and even a family of eagles. All the designs are small, but Brenda promises that they'll make a big statement when you display them together in a tray or basket. (She says it is delightfully fun to find little trinkets and decorations to include with the cushions because it really makes your stitching POP!)
All garden-y in theme, Lady Liberty has sunflowers as tall as she is, Sam is fashioned to look like a garden Whirli-gig, and his hat is even a planter. A bunting-draped watering can is home to a another sunflower, and the Mom and Dad eagles are perched and waiting for a festive party! Lots of the same colors of flosses are called for in both patterns, so no need to buy more thread. (Onyx, Pea Coat, Red Rocks, Grits, Oscar, Pamlico, Blue Suede, Grecian Gold, 611, 712, 3771 and 3778.
Happy Birthday America! from With Thy Needle & thread
Brenda Gervais is previewing another little chart design - a miniature stitched birthday cake to America - featuring a very festive eagle! (But... you could finish this as a small pin cushion as well.) Measuring just 3-1/2 inches round on 36ct linen, it is stitched with bits of DMC floss and hand-dyeds of Grits, Palomino, Loden, Pea Coat, Red Rocks, Blue Suede and Grecian Gold.
Brenda is supplying her alphabet-printed linen you see on the drum sides in the chart. The featured trim is by Lady Dot - Vintage Mini Pom, which is available separately. The chart gives sources for the 2 x 4 cardboard 'cake box' form, and the candle-stick wooden 'cake plate' base. Brenda says her finishing instructions will give you a 'prefectly-shaped cake with no wonky bumps or lumps... super easy, and no sewing machine required!'
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.
New Summer Designs Coming
from Hands On Design
New Heart in Hand Arrivals
Cecelia Turner has released several cute new things... all available in leaflet form... here we go!
Wow... We have a new shipment of FLAX for Spring and Summer 2021!
Last year was kind of a 'bust' for needing fun and new clothing... we really missed going to Market to see the new lines. (Welllll, there WAS no Market and there was no new) But Spring is here... we're getting our feet wet again, and filling a few of our racks with some bright Azure Blue, andMagenta!
We have three colors of cotton/linen denim Jean Jackets, and some super-fun green and soft lavender stripe pieces. I didn't get a lot, just enough to freshen and excite! A few pictures here, all the details, colors, sizes, etc are on our FLAX page. Go take a peek if it interests you!
Presenting 18ct Perforated Paper by
by Mill Hill
This is a new size of paper for stitching. 14ct Perf Paper has been around for over 150 years... but this 18ct is NEW! Perfectly sized for the Petite seed beads, it comes only in white right now.
Truthfully, we have no hints as to upcoming designs... but that's no reason not to have any! Something fun and new... 2 strands of floss would work on this... see what's in your stash to try on this! Comes packaged just like the 14ct - two 9 x 12 sheets - for $5.00
Bakers Gonna Bake...
from New York Dreamer
In the Summer too! Another cute rolling pin design by New York Dreamer, I guess bakers live everywhere... even the waterfront!
Presented as a chart, 75 x 160... 32ct, it calls for either DMC or hand-dyed flosses. Cute!
Baked With Love
from New York Dreamer
This is a stitched rolling pin cover! It has little valentine cookies on it, along with sugar and flour and it says *Baked With Love.* Stitched on 16/32ct with DMC or hand-dyeds, it's actually pretty cute, and will fit around a classic 18-inch rolling pin.
I do have to share... when I opened The Silver Needle 37 years ago - in 1984 - I carried little Aida cloth blanks to stitch and cover wooden rolling pins! We sold a TON of them. So here I am, 37 years later, still at it I guess! This chart is a little expensive though... be aware of that, but otherwise... what a fun gift for a baker!
Sea Box from Rovaris
Oh Look - Livia's Limited Edition Sea Tray!
New supply has arrived!
*Sea* is stitched in the middle of this charming 5 x 7-ish stitched medley of underwater critters and foliage. Seahorses, a crab, and a big octopus... it's a busy little underwater scene.
Along with the chart, you get this cool 7 x 7 x 2-ish inch wooden tray. It features that display area for your stitched cushion, and three holes to hold your needlework implements.
Livia is including the striped finishing fabric you see, and a bunch of cute seaside charms that are dangling there off the cushion. The two included wood tools supplied are one seam ripper and one frogger.
Fun Needlework Accessories from Sampling of Memories
These Scissor, Thread and Needle Keepers feature vintage artwork from ads by DMC and Sajou. Dressed up a little with a mini-stork scissor charm, each metal square measures 1-inch in size. Pretty little do-dads to have! We'll send a combo of the two or make them match - if you have a preference for one of the other, please let us know in the order form's comments box.
Pansy Bunny and Her Pansy Rose Cube - New Spring Arrivals from Just Nan
Boardwalk Revue, Bunny Rabbit, Bee Bungalow, Acorns Among Us, and Love You This Much
from Fern Ridge Collections
The Fern Ridge ladies - Pat and Peggy - have been busy during the lock-down BEADING their fingers off! We have 5 new Peyote Beaded Fobs to prove it and 4 matching stitched needle cases! The fobs are always the showy-glitzy half of the sets, so I am cheating here and showing you the glamour and sparkle. Our models will be finished in a few weeks - at which point I'll have much more fun pics to show you, but for now... here we go!
Each of the fobs comes as its own complete kit. I have taken P & P's classes at market, and can tell you that (once you get past the first three rows of the Peyote!).... it is super-fun and the neatest thing to do. (You cannot do these in the car!) You hold this in your hand to create...and you work from the straight bottom edge up to the pointed top.
P & P present these as either a color chart to follow (I like that) or a page of horrible run-on numbers that knitters love - and know how to follow! It's just so funny to see how different minds follow instructions! So, you finish the (approx 1-1/2 inches) of flat beading, attach the top decorations and scissor clip. Then, you get to string all the flashy and cool beads all along the bottom to make that one or two-inch fringe. They give you the actual bead pictures in the instructions, so you know what (pre-labeled) beads go where. The most challenging part of the fringe is keeping the finished strands out of the way of the one you're stringing! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the finished products... I'm just so impressed with myself for making them!
The 2021 Annual Mill Hill Autumn Bead Kits Have Released!|
Wow, Plenty of time to work on these before the frigid Fall temps hit! Mill Hill has sent their collections of small 3 x 3 and larger 5 x 5 beaded-on-paper designs that are perennial favorites!

Complete kits of chart, 14ct perforated paper, DMC flosses, needles and Mill Hill beads and buttons, these are a great value. Witch's Brew features a black fat cat button; Playful Cat has a bumble bee button. Spooky Gate is definitely our shop favorite - it features a skinny black cat button - and all those fantastic colors in the sky. Outdoor Adventure and Autumn Swing remind us of the great outdoors (and bugs in Oklahoma!), and Floral Pumpkin is inspiration for my front porch decorations! Each finishes about 5 x 5... and if you want to substitute linen for them - choose 28ct. We assemble our shop models into little hanging pillows.
2021 Autumn Harvest Collection from Mill Hill
These are the little 3 x 3 ornament-sized designs that are fun on your Christmas tree - or finished as magnets to cling to your frig or file cabinet. Complete kits of 14ct perforated paper, you get the paper, chart, beads and threads, along with the needles. The little moon is cute - it matches the bigger pumpkin from last year. Rosie Racoon is darling! Fall Flamingo goes with the summer one we already have! Pumpkin Delivery is ready for the Guiness Book of World Records - that pumpkin must weigh a ton! Fall Fun has a sign to the corn maze, and Halloween Owl has that spindly little spider friend!
Announcing AB Designs' next 2021 Stitch-along - A Year of Snowfriends!
This monthly series will begin this June. Amy will begin with the main chart and July. Then, every other month, you'll get two more charts, till it finishes next year. Charts include embellishments.
The sample is stitched on Weeks 20ct Tin Roof hand-dyed linen, but we think 18ct Natural will work well too. You can use floss - or bits of your #5 Pearls left over from stockings and other fun projects you've finished!
Our Warm & Wooly auto is finished... so this is next year's project!

Lobstah Dinnah Ornament
from The Elegant Thread
This is the CUTEST thing! By The Elegant Thread, stitch this cute little red lobster - he's 2 x 3 - and put him inside his mesh cage - he's ready to bring home for dinner! (Or you can hang him on your Christmas Tree, or perch him somewhere in your kitchen!)
Presented as a complete kit, you are stitching him over one thread on 22ct hand-dyed aqua blue linen. It's a pretty coarse weave, so it's not hard to see. Next, sew him together into a little pillow - the red and cream checkered backing fabric and interfacing are included. Then, roll the plastic mesh - included - into his trap, tie him inside there with the bit of included twine... and you're finished! This is SO creative and cute... I'm in the middle of nowhere in Oklahoma... I've never set lobster traps in my life, but even I know this is *a winnah!*

The chimney is a cupcake... and can you see the elf climbing on the roof? On the front side, you can see him just to the right of the cupcake - I think he's sneaking a snack.

Now, look at the back of the house... there's the little guy on the roof again!

by Heart's Ease Examplar Workes
This has been one of Theresa Baird's exclusive class pieces that is now available in chart format. Just a gorgeous piece, Theresa's inspiration came from a Betty Ring sampler that sold at a Sotheby's auction for over a million dollars in 2012.
She was enchanted by the mansion with the cedar trees, the barnyard with the animals, the young lady sitting straight and proud atop a horse, the farmhouse on the hill, and the flanking baskets of fruits and flowers.
It measures 257 x 355, and is worked in silks. The chart is 38 pages... it is full of stitch diagram detail, and actual close-up pics of some areas. Not for the faint of stitcher - not the quickest stitch either! Just an EXQUISITE needlework design to tantalize the brave!

Let Freedom Ring from Lila's Studio
This is a beautiful piece that will finish an impressive 15 x 19 on 32ct. Released in 2017... we've had it, but I didn't pay attention to it until recently. Just lovely, Independence Hall is so pretty with the trees in the background. All the windows, the arches, the hand-dyed threads making the bricks look real... the billowing flag and cracked Liberty Bell... this piece makes quite a statement!
25 Shades of DMC along with 6 hand-dyeds... the building is Classic Colorworks Calico Kitty, and the trees are Endive, both of which require 4 skeins of thread. Lila has done an excellent job with the chart - it's huge, full of contrast and has symbols next to each other that are EASY to tell apart. Just whip this right up - it'd look great in the Family room or an office!
Yes, there's even MORE!
