Silver Creek Samplers has 6 new Releases... Due in the shop the first week of September
Diane has charming designs -- kind of her signature feature are the words she always uses that are incorporated into the design. Everything is offered in chart pack format... and as always a lot of them are suitable for multiple different fabric colors and counts... makes your decisions harder!!!
  • Zip It - Well... Whimiscal and fun... stitched with hand-dyeds on anything neutral. Would be fun to make a little stand-up block out of this and garnish the finishing with actual zippers!
  • Kringle Flying Academy - 'Rooftop Landings since 1823.' (The Night Before Christmas was published in December of 1823! First place to announce Santa landing of rooftops!) Great colors on this holiday piece, it'd be fun to add metallics to the moon and snow! We have lots of gorgeous smoky, mangy blues for that night sky.
  • Mary Rotters Spelling Lesson - This is really cute... read those entertaining spelling words!
  • A Perfect Match - Moving from creepy Halloween into Love and Happiness... this might make a cute shower or annniversary gift. You could leave off the hands and arms to make it 'less wedding' if you need to, and just more 'daily feel the love!'
  • Button Your Lip - 'Before you let unkind words slip - grab a button and button your Lip!' Kind of a companion to Zip It... the finishing idea of simply putting the stitching into the jar of buttons is kind of different and EASY!
  • For Unto Us - 'A Child is Born.' - Could be a Christmas piece or a new baby announcement... probably changing the manger/arbor over the letter O would make it more contemporary and less Christmassy... but either way - A new baby is a big deal!

Pansy Patch Quilts is beginning a new 9-part series of Autumn houses - just like her Gingerbread Cottage Set! Here are the first two (you don't have to get all 9 and stitch them all - it's OK to pick and choose favorites - less stress!)

Pumpkin House and Chrysanthemum House charts are ready now... next two release November of 2023, next two in January of '23, and final three release in March '23. Lori has a fun freebie border chart to join this set together if you want to go that route, but they are shown as individual pin cushions on the chart covers as well. Anyway, pretty Fall colors, lots of fun quilt motifs decorating the houses, neat top and bottom borders... leave off the names of the houses if you want - and insert your own initials instead! Each house measures 97 x 87... is stitched with DELICIOUS colors of hand-dyeds (DMC conversions included) and finishes approx 5 x 5. Lady Dot trims are featured on the cushions.

  • Mrs Beesley's Summer House from Pansy Patch Quilts and Stitchery - A cute little sampler - 'The skep is to the bee what the churndash is to a quilter.' Just a bitty 7 x 7 on 36ct... a few hand-dyeds... a quick stitch!
  • Little Red Schoolhouse Pinkeep from Pansy Patch Quilts and Stitchery - Love This! It's worked with a single red color of hand-dyed thread... on a natural color of linen. You have options! Stitch Count is 111 x 119 - so 6 x 6 would be the finished size on 36ct!
  • Autumn Crow from Pansy Patch Quilts and Stitchery - A sweet little piece, this is only 60 x 60 and is worked with hand-dyeds or DMC. Presented in a small chart format.
  • Bluebirds and Bluebells Sampler from Pansy Patch Quilts and Stitchery - This pretty sampler measures a whopping 251 x 332 - so on 36ct will finish about 14 x 18. The pattern includes finishing ideas for the pin cushion and scissor case - kind of a reminder that you can make lots of fun things out of all the different motifs and borders in this. Lots of hand-dyeds.

Little Cuties from AB Designs - click for more Hocus Pocus and Little Pumpkin Friend from AB Designs - click for more HoHoHo from AB Designs - click for more Every Little Thing from AB Designs - click for more
Christmas and Halloween Designed the AB Designs Way!
Amy Bruecken is releasing 4 new charts for stitching fun... due in the shop the first of September... we are taking reservations for them now.
  • Little Cuties are 4 little ornament-sized penquin, snowmen and red bird pieces - just 25 x 41 in stitch count. Itty bitty - on 28ct they are less than 2 x 3. Weeks flosses, the pillow ornaments on the cover pic offer cute finishing ideas. All 4 designs are in the pattern.
  • Hocus Pocus and Little Pumpkin Friend - Ms Pocus is stitched on splattered Lugana - but she'd be cute on a wild hand-dyed fabric color as well. DMC for her, she's only 88 x 75 - so about 4 x 5. Little Pumpkin Friend is only 30 x 37 - and he'd make a cute poke for your candy dish.
  • HoHoHo puts us in a Christmas Spirit - He's done on 32ct petit point natural linen with Weeks Dye Works hand-dyeds. I love the soft greens and the deep reds this year... he's not even 5 x 6!
  • Every Little Thing - I can just hear those song lyrics in my head... again the soft greens in this one. I see wreaths on the front doors, but don't really get a Christmas-vibe with this... so I think you can stitch this to hang all year long! 181 x 73, It'll finish 13 x 5 on 14/28, and uses Weeks handyeds.

  • Autumn's Hymn is her ode to the Stitcher's Autumn. Our Stitcher is stocking up with thread - check out the horse-drawn wagon with the spools, the gigantic tomato pin cushion and that DARLING LITTLE FOX perched atop all! They are all enjoying the natural Fall beauty by stitching outside in the yard - the chipmunks and birds all over the yard are staying out of the way - for now! Pretty colors of good 'ol DMC - 8, 300, 356, 413, 422, 435, 500, 680, 730, 831, 838, 841, 918, 950, 2, 3012, 3022, 3046, 3051, 3857 and ecru. It's a pretty scene!
  • Seasons of the Heart - Autumn - This is the third of 4 seasons of hearts. Spring and Summer exist - Winter will probably be released March of 2023. Based on a heart-shaped frame surrounded with seasonal plants and animals, each is super cute and colorful. Autumn features a tiny hedgehogs and owls, along with corn, apples pumpkins and sunflowers. Really nice colors of basic DMC!
  • Magpie and the Moon - Jeannine loves her little bird - ready for Autumn. Showing off festive plumage along with seasonal berries and leaves, she's perched on her branch underneath a watchful moon. 90 x 90 Stitch count, DMCs and hand-dyeds.

  • Esmeralda's Academy of Charms - The newest annual spooky house! 'School is back in session at Esmeralda's Academy of Charms. All the children are busy learning all the spells and tricks for Halloween. They are making spells to conjure ghosts, ghost cats and wicked spiders. Even the cats are working hard to learn the perfect flying techniques.' Something fun to stitch to make the Halloween Season even more festive, the Praiseworthy Stitches Ladies always do a new house every year... full of hand-dyed threads and usually a smattering of clay button embellishments, a few beads and a little metallic (makes great spider webs!). We have lots and lots of gorgeous hand-dyed fabrics in multiple counts that will work for this house, so there are size options!

Presenting Fragments in Time for 2022 from Summer House Stitch Workes
Beth Ann Seal's 5th Annual 2022 set of 8 small cushion designs is inspired by the antique samplers (late 1700 to 1840) of Pennsylvania's Susquehanna Valley. Lots of color this year, this set of 8 small charts all coordinate and make a very eye-catching set of bowl-fillers. Stitched on Weeks 32ct Straw Linen, (1/4 yard) the whole set will need Weeks hand-dyed flosses (but coded for DMC as well) of Cadet (2 skeins), Carolina Cecil (2), Cinnabar (2), Moss (3), Lichen (2), Chestnut (3) and Parchment (2). So far, two different rayon ribbon trims are featured on #1 and #2... don't know if we'll be able to keep up with that or not, but we'll try!

If you want to see the other 4 years of Fragments - we have them all nicely organized on our main SH page... they are all so much fun to see all stitched together! Auto-ship will be offered, starting with 1 and 2... May brings #3/4, July brings #5/6 and September 2022 finishes with #7/8.

Her pin assortments differ from the cover pic. Look over our offerings... closest options are: BOO Pins, Halloween Pin set of 3 and Halloween 2021 pin set of 6.

Cross Stitch Quilt #19 Flag from Susanamm - click for more Cute Pumpkin from Susanamm - click for more Cute Pumpkin and Cross Stitch Quilt #19 (Flag) by Susanamm Cross Stitch
We're crossing the holidays with these two new releases by Susanamm Cross Stitch. Really cute pieces both are presented as charts. Susana's charts can be a little challenging as the flag, for instance, is full coverage, and her symbols are quite similar side by side in the chart. Coded for DMC.
  • Cute Pumpkin is stitched on Weeks Havana hand-dyed linen - a khaki color of Aida will work too. Coded for 33 shades of DMC, it measures 132 stitches square - so it finishes about 8 inches square on 32ct. It looks like fun to stitch... you might just need to blow up the chart a little to tell the symbols apart... but there is lots of solid, so it's easy to work on!
  • Cross Stitch Quilt #19 - Measures 126 x 168. Doesn't matter what you work on, as it's all covered - so chose something you LIKE to work on! The stylized flag has a checkerboard background that you really can't see in the pic - it looks REALLY cool when you can look at the pic closely though. Quite an eyecatching piece, it uses 10 different shades of DMC red, blue and ecru. This will finish approx 8 x 11 on 32ct.

Tree of Life Sampler from With Thy Needle -- click to see lots more Autumn's Acorn Gathering from With Thy Needle -- click to see lots more Be Ye Thankful from With Thy Needle -- click to see lots more
Three New Arrivals from With Thy Needle & Thread!
  • Tree of Life Sampler - A lovely sampler - not too big either! Rose, butterscotch and gray colors, Tree of Life measures just 89 x 112, is worked with DMC and all three hand-dyed floss companies. On the 32ct Weeks Beige hand-dyed linen it calls for, this will finish just 5-1/2 x 7-1/2. Pretty floral motifs and the cute little house, Brenda shares that while taking the antique needlework out of its frame to better see the colors on the backside, she found a Spencerian Penmanship Lesson hand-sewn on the backside of the sampler. Was it a school lesson by the same set of hands as the sampler? Did she learn stitching and penmanship at the same school? We'll never know. Choose a smaller count of linen if you like... this will be charming no matter what you choose! Presented as a leaflet.
  • Autumn's Acorn Gathering - Two plump little squirrels - they've been scampering and foraging in your backyard all summer getting ready for Fall. Stitched on 36ct Winter's Brew hand-dyed linen, using various hand-dyeds and DMC, each of these little guys measures just 56 x 77 - so just 3 x 4! You can finish them into cushions or little block stand-ups... they'll be so happy perched near a bowl of baby pumpkins and those little candy corn cobbs!
  • Be Ye Thankful - I love the pumpkin in the urn! This is worked on 40ct Country Vintage Mocha linen, so finishes about 5 x 4. Again, a mixture of asst DMC's and the hand-dyeds, this is fun for the season. Scattered acorns and wandering vine of Bittersweet, all the colors blend for a pleasing presentation. Presented as a chart pack.
Gardenside Sampler & Tree by Liz Matthews - click to see more Wildflowers from Liz Matthews - click to see more Sunshine by Liz Matthews - click to see more
Liz Matthews has been busy with quite a few new releases...
  • Gardenside Sampler & Tree is a pretty summer-y sampler with a border of thread spools and scissors. The pattern features her tree-finishing of part of the sampler... just like her series of The 12 Days of Christmas. We saw the stitched models all lined up on a table at Market - smaller than we thought they really were, these stitched trees are CHARMING! (On 18/36ct, the trees are only 6 x 8 - and that's at their largest points.)
  • Wildflowers is shown stitched on both a dark and light background fabric... and Liz has changed the colors in each! Midnight and Morning... there are only three shades that are different. These finish about 6 inches in size on 32ct.
  • Sunshine - *You are my sunshine, my only sunshine!* These are stitched off-center on your fabric, in one shade of a golden hand-dyed floss. The models on the front cover are mounted in 8 x 10 frames - so that gives you a size idea... These are the same 'flavor' design as Old Friends and Gather Here. Super plain... your frame choices can really dress them up if you want!

#9 Woodpecker from Cottage Garden Samplings - click to see more Trick or Treat from Cottage Garden Samplings - click to see more On the way to us... New From Cottage Garden Samplings!
Trick or Treat and The Woodpecker. We expect these the last week of July.
  • Trick or Treat - Halloween is around the corner - although the weather is just as scary RIGHT NOW! Check out this neat design - you have nine small cushion-sized designs that are all joined with a spider-web border! The whole piece measures 169 in stitch count, so each square is 56 - so 3 inches on 18ct. Beautiful little designs in here... I love the owl, and at first my eyes didn't see the bat or the ravens, but I saw those webs! Coded for DMC and Weeks.
  • The Woodpecker is the 9th in Vinniey's Year in the Woods Series. This continues to be a colorful set of stylized animal designs - not all necessarily common to a lot of us - with great color and visual impact. Sophisticated in personality, they all measure the same size, and can stand alone without the rest of the set stitched and in attendance! Unique subjects, great textures... can't wait till we have the final three! Presented as a chart, coded for a few Weeks hand-dyeds and rest is DMC.

Here is our tiny Springtime edition of Nan's Magnetic Mice perched on little tins!
Glory Bee is wearing a bumblebee costume featuring black and yellow stripes, garden greenery, white flowers and a cute little bee skep on the back. Nan has used peanut-shaped beads to make tiny bee bodies, and added gold beads for sparkle. Glory Bee is wearing an amber glass flower bead hat as well. She is magnetized so she clings to the top of her tin... and inside that cool tin is a charming 1-1/4 inch square Bee Needlebook. Honeycomb center on that... a lovely hand-painted gold bee charm in the center... and felts on the back to hold needles. n All very petite and super cute!

You will need a 9 x 9 cut of 32ct linen... and if you plan to stitch all 4 in the set... purchasing all 4 cuts of fabric together insures they match nicely. (We are out of the Linen linen at the moment... so auto-ships will not include fabric.)
Nan has sold out of Peacock Mouse on a Tin, but we have a few left.

New Arrivals from Hands On Designs
Cathy has some summer releases that look like they'll be fun to stitch and finish!
  • Clover & Hive - Luscious shades of honey yellow, mossy green and soft lavenders... between the hives, clovers and little bees, this is a busy place! Choose a pale green fabric and your Classic Colorworks hand-dyed flosses and get busy like the little bees!
  • Beach Please - Here's a fun idea - this piece is made up of 15 tiny little motifs all arranged together to make the main presentation. Each square is 18 x 18 in stitch count so changing your fabric count will change overall sizes on these. Stitch just a few into fobs or cushions or make the pillow - the model is shown on 32ct Light Mocha Belfast linen and is stitched with just 10 shades of regular DMC floss! Cathy also worked each block on perforated paper, mounted them on foam core board, and arranged them in a shadow box frame! What a neat idea!
  • More Beach - A pair of designs sharing the same colors and motifs, this is stitched with Week's Dye Works hand-dyed flosses. 'Come to the beach where the sea is blue and little white waves come running at you.' The companion smaller design reads 'Less Mondays, more beach!'

The Antique Lock Trilogy Kits from Mill Hill - click for more
The Antique Lock Trilogy Kits - Measuring 3 x 4 on the 14ct perforated paper - these companion their seasonal KEYS from last year! Pretty to hang in an entryway... we like the deep, rich colors, and the fact that while they are seasonal, they are a different subject motif than we are used to! From the left: Spring, Autumn and Winter... no Summer offered in this set - it's a TRIO!

Tomato Garden Adventure from Artful Offerings - click for more Tomato Garden Adventure from Artful Offerings
Well, this is a piece full of imagination! Clouds in the sky, the flag blowing in the stiff wind... the little bunny-farmers and working hard to tether their hot-air tomato balloon so they don't lose their little buddy - the other bunny in the watering-can basket!

See the count-down numbers in the background, the sturdy little benches held together with antique keys, and the tiny berry anchors on the ropes? Stitched with a combination of Weeks, Gentle Art and DMC flosses on 36ct linen, this finishes approx 11 x 7-1/2 in size. Just the cutest and most festive thing for tomato season, it's presented as a chart.

The Seamstress from Perrette Samouiloff Stitchery from Jardin Prive - click for more Stticher from Luminous Fiber Arts -- click to see more
Three Charming Designs for Stitchers!
  • The Seamstress by Perrette Samouiloff is a neat design. Choose your favorite color of hand-dyed thread (or solid DMC if you'd rather) and stitch this glorious medley of everything dressmaker! Just like some of the other 'stitch-related' designs we have, you can take small motifs out of this and make some REALLY cute pin cushions, or do the whole thing to frame and hang. Choose any fabric you like... on 14/28 this finishes 9-1/2 x 11-1/2.
  • Stitchery from Jardin Prive - Here's a fun design of everything 'cross stitch!' Stitched with DMC, on 16/32ct, it finishes approx 9 x 14. It'd be cute as a door sign to your stitching room. It'd be fun inserted into the front of a stitch pouch or tote bag... or even on a stitching mat. You COULD stitch some of the individual words - like needle or cross stitch, and finish that smaller area into its own pin cushion, literally cutting off stitching around it - that's kind of a fun design angle! Offered as a chart, choose any fabric you like for this.
  • Stticher from Luminous Fiber Arts - Just something cute for a Stitcher! Pick your favorite fabric, choose a color, find some old buttons, and you're ready to stitch this fun sign. I think it needs to hang above a special stitching chair or hang on the door of your 'lair!' It'd be cute stitched into the front of a fabric envelope tote, too. Measures 53 x 120 - so it'll finish a little over 3 x 7 on 32ct.

Presented as full color charts, you can do any of them by themselves, or join them all together for a festive grouping.

I took a pic at Market of the whole set... they're definitely cute! We do have an ongoing auto-ship on these, and can catch you up with these first 4, then sending the final three later this fall when releases finish.

  • #138 Gita in Barca - Translates to Boat Trip - There are RABBITS on this ship, being tossed by the waves - coral ahead, lighthouse behind. The second pattern included is the Summer word with beach cabanas. Charted for DMC, that little rolling ship is exciting!
  • #139 Gita in Barca Cusinetti - Another that translates of Boat Trip - this one has 4 pin-cushion designs with a backstitched border design. Use that border as the sides to a mattress-shaped cushion - you can see one in the cover pic! Summer, Beach and the light house - coded for DMC - I just want to be there - whatever beach it is!
  • #171 I Love the Sea - Two small designs, one is a light house, the other is a back view of a girl standing on the beach holding her sand pail. Both measure a mere 30 or 40 stitches without the wording... coded for DMC. Just charming!
  • #170 The Beach is my Happy Place - It really is... only I am in Oklahoma! I can only imagine the peace and relaxation of a gorgeous place like this. If you have one... stitch this! DMC, 225 x 131... something fun for your beach house!

Siren's Tart from Plum Street Samplers Live on Little from Plum Street Samplers New Arrivals from Plum Street Samplers
  • Live on Little - *How great the blessing and vast the art, to live on little with a thankful heart.* Just a gorgeous New England house by the sea... I could live there, and my heart would be thankful - I promise! Paulette's daughter did comment that 'whoever is living in that house is most certainly not 'living on little!' Measuring 307 x 207, it's stitched on 36ct Hogbristle Linen by Fox & Rabbit using Weeks hand-dyed flosses and lots of DMC. It finishes approx17 x 11-1/2 - huge! An alphabet is included to personalize the flags on the sailboat - I love the border, the sea, the house, and the whole whale and lobster thing at the bottom!
  • Siren's Tart - A little 3 x 4 piece - 36ct Weeks Dove Linen, with Weeks flosses, our mermaid is stitching a letter S - for Siren. Her sewing box happens to be a treasure chest... which Paulette suspects we all have and LOVE!
Magnetic Color Wheel Minders by Accoutrement Designs - click for more
Magnetic Color Wheel Minders from Accoutrements
Wow... is THIS a fun little thing! Meant to be a Needle Minder - it's actually 2 inches in diameter, about 1/4 of an inch in thickness, and it weighs about an ounce and a half. It is LOVELY! Basically it's an enameled color wheel with a rotating overlay (the white wheel part) that offers instant info for color matching!

We had to Google all about the Color Wheel... which was fun. We learned that this little gizmo can show you color combinations that look good together, besides being pretty and fun to play with! A little on the heavy side just to have on your fabric to hold needles... it'd be awesome by your stitching lamp.

Beach from Madame Chantilly Summer from Madame Chantilly Summer and Beach
from Madame Chantilly
These two just go together, don't they? A pair of 'signs' with coordinating mini-cushions, I think you need to buy a beach house to display these in after they're stitched!

Soft lettering, both feature a smiling little crab. Mermaid on one, a lighthouse on the other, they care coded for DMC and will look good on a natural or oatmeal-ly colored background fabric. The larger designs will finish approx 11 x 6, while the little cushion designs are just 2-1/2 inches!

Candy Corn & Pumpkin, Day at Sea Shore and Sewmore the Crow from Stitches by Ethel
Stitches by Ethel is a new designer for our shop - she's just released her first 9 charts - and we've featured three of them here. (Click the pics to visit her new page to see the rest!) All are offered as single charts, with a nice stitched model pic (not a digitized image) on the cover and a clear, colored chart to work from. We like these!
  • Candy Corn and Pumpkin features a little mouse offering his crow friend a Halloween treat directly from his pumpkin snack! Measuring just 81 x 55, this finishes approx 4-1/2 x 3 on 18/36ct, and is coded for regular DMC floss.
  • Day at the Sea Shore features a little sand crab offering HIS crow friend a starfish snack! Cute as can be, this one measures 95 x 60 - so 3 x 4 on 18/36, and can be done on a sandy, gray or bluish-colored fabric.
  • Sew More The Crow - Stitched on Weeks Tin Roof hand-dyed linen - you can make your tomato green like this one, or change it to red - just adjust your little button colors a bit. Super cute, I think this little guy could haunt your Autumn stitching. Measuring just 60 x 48, he's 2-1/2 3x 3 on 36ct!

A trip to Italy via your Needle!
from Artmishka Cross Stitch
Isn't this a charming set of 4 small designs? By Artmishka Cross Stitch... directly from Italy... I just love them!

Presented as 4 individual charts - each measures 68 to 71 stitches - so just about 4 inches in size on 18/36ct. Coded for DMC, she has provided you with two charts in each - one without the backstitches, so you can SEE the regular crosses on the charts, and then the second chart with backstitch placement. Just makes me want to go to Italy!
Christmas is Coming - The Mill Hill Way!

The 2022 Winter Series Button & Beaded Kits
Our massive collection of 5 x 5 beaded and stitched designs is growing with these 6 new designs! If you've been in the shop, you are quite familiar with our 'Great Walls' of stitched kits - all on various colors of 28ct linen. Each kit comes with DMC flosses, a load of Mill Hill glass seed beads and 14ct perforated paper (which is super easy to work on.) We started doing our models on 28ct linen just for fun, and like them just a well on fabric... so we offer separate cuts of material as well, just in case. Aurora Borealis features the new Mill Hill Glow-in-the-Dark beads - so it really does look a little more 'glisteny.' Santa's Clothesline is super cute and colorful. The Blue Jay is full of frosty opalescent whites and crisp blues - good to enjoy all winter long. Ski Dog is darling - he's waiting for you to HURRY UP! Snow in Love can stay up through Valentine's Day, and The Village Schoolhouse is the next edition to the charming Christmas Village Series... but alas... EMPTY for Christmas Break!
The Winter Holiday Ornament Collection for 2022 from Mill Hill - click for more
The Winter Holiday Ornament Collection for 2022
Another cute set of 2 x 3 or 3 x 3 ornament and magnet-sized designs. Each is presented with the chart, 14ct perforated paper, all the necessary DMC flosses and Mill Hill beads and a glass or crystal Mill Hill Treasure embellishment. Simply cut the paper off right outside the design - and you're finished! (Don't use your delicate embroidery scissors to cut. Choose something a little more heavy duty - like our Dr Slick SN65 synthetic scissors - larger handles, they are super-duper and will even cut leather!) Enjoy a cup of hot cocoa with a marshmallow snowman! The Garland has tiny danglers - so will look good on the very tip of a branch. Winter Barn comes right out of a Hallmark movie and Cheers celebrates New Year's. The Cuckoo Clock has Santa filling stockings on Christmas Eve - all in that bitty design area! - and the Ceramic tree is meant to offer a nostalgic look into the decorations of Christmas Past.

The 2022 Annual Santas! from Mill Hill
This marks the 24th Annual Trio of Paper Santa Ornaments! So these are number 70, 71 and 72 in the set! Over the years, this series has shown what Santa does all year long... and where he comes from! We've seen him vacationing in Hawaii, he's been mountain climbing, at the South Pole, playing musical instruments, and just traveling the world over.

Each kit comes with the chart, 14ct perforated paper, DMC floss and Mill Hill beads. They all finish about 3-1/2 inches high, and are really fun to find on the Christmas Tree.

New Designs from Artful Offerings
Artful Offerings has a lot of new designs that are bold and eye-catching! I have NINE that we are adding to her inside pages... so have a peek at the rest, too! Whether you finish them as pillows, as she shows, or frame them, they're all darling!
  • American Sailboat Sampler - Katina writes, "This vintage-look Americana design celebrates Liberty, Freedom and the 4th of July! An eagle is perched atop the mast, high above the red, white and blue sails. Splendid golden laurel wreaths embellish the anchor motifs and a small upper case alphabet completes this simple summertime sampler." I love the graphic lines in this design - the stripes and dots on the flag sails... the swirls of waves and the balance of the anchors! Finishing approx 10 inches on 18/36ct, it is coded for DMC or hand-dyeds.
  • God Bless America Sampler - Katina's comments on this read, "God Bless America features a beautiful barn with spires, quilt-block-style stars and an eagle weathervane. An American Flag flies above the barn and the border features golden laurel leaves with red, white, and blue flowers." A grand upper case alphabet fills the sky - kind of like clouds! Measures about 9 x 9 on 18/36ct, and coded for DMC or hand-dyeds.
  • Patriotic Pinwheel Parade - This adorable colony of bunny-rabbits has decided to put on the most amazing patriotic parade using the paper pinwheels they have crafted! Each bunny is dressed in their finest red, white and blue apparel and ready to go. Mr Rabbit has been chosen to lead the parade and fly the colors, while toddler-bunny discovers new and creative ways to use a pinwheel! Finishes approx 11 x 5 on 18/36 - this is coded for DMC or hand-dyeds!

All the Things Cross Stitch from Anabella's - click to see more All the Things Cross Stitch from Anabella's
This is a single leaflet that features a larger stitching-themed piece and then 4 smaller cushion-sized designs to coordinate! At first you think the 4 singles are just copies of the larger, but they have re-arranged the motifs to make them all a little different.

Coded for DMC floss; all designs are worked on white. They would be cute mounted onto the front of a stitching pouch - you could even stitch parts of this on the plastic plaid pouches that Shepherd's Bush uses. Just colorful, organized and cute.

Bless and Keept from Sweet Wing Studio - click to see more Forever in Peace from Sweet Wing Studio - click to see more Forever in Peace and Bless and Keep
from Sweet Wing Studio
  • Forever in Peace - This is a really cool new design by Sweet Wing Studio... it LOOKS like it's full of specialty stitches, but it is simply stitched patterns of color! Our Flag.... stitch it with or without the words... it's pretty either way! Coded for DMC or various hand-dyed flosses, the flag part measures 60 x 90, so you could get that part 3 x 4-1/2 on 20... or even 2 x 3-1/2 over one on 28ct Lugana! And, since the chart is solid symbols... it's probably easier to stitch this off the chartpack cover - the picture is clear and big enough! This just really caught our eye... and shop model is already off to the stitcher!
  • Bless and Keep - 'The Lord bless you and keep you...' I can hear the church hymn in my head! Measuring 62 x 94, this is coded for DMC and/or hand-dyeds and finishes a mere 4 x 6 on 32ct. Choose a darker fabric so the white lettering shows up - as it does in the pic.

Presenting Dr Slick Razor-Sharp Scissors
Coming to us from the Fly-Fishing Industry are these incredible 3-1/2 and 4-inch scissors with huge "Gold Loop" finger holes, that can handle some pretty serious cutting needs! Wonderfully rounded handles with a nice weight to them, these feature larger finger holes and wonderfully fine and sharp precision cutting blades.Dr Slick SN60 3-1/2 Inch Arrow The blades feature a very fine micro-serration to them which keeps your threads where you want them when you cut them, and yet they feel as smooth as butter.

As far as the finger holes go, we have a comparison picture showing the difference between our DOVO embroidery scissors and the handles of these scissors on our scissor page... along with lots of other specific scissor details. Dr Slick uses words like 'hypodermic sharp' to describe their tips, and Tungsten Carbide vs Stainless Steel to describe some of the metals. All I know is that they have a really nice balance and weight to them, they cut like a dream, and the blades and tips are SHARP. Actually almost too big for my hands... I know lots of you will LOVE these!

So yours WILL look like this - same colors and fabrics, etc. You can't see the edging or back in the pic, but that features red baby rik rak, and a darling red/white and aqua floral backing fabric.

It's 'Get with the program - embrace and discover opportunity!' Actually kind of a fun piece, choose just about any fabric you want... add some gunmetally grey, bronze, gold or silver metallics (kind of in the vain of those new doors you should be opening), and get this stitched! Good loving advice from Mom. Measures 181 x 149 - so 11-1/2 x 9-1/2 on 32ct, this is coded for DMC or Classic Colorworks hand-dyed floss.

Anyway, two charming little samplers in here abut 9 x 9 each on 32ct. Teresa has new software and she's been busy taking glorious pictures, so these new books of hers are just lovely to page through! Presented in a leaflet format with fun musings by Theresa.
  • Cathcart Colquhoun 1785 - Theresa can't resist Eyelet alphabets - and just found this little sampler in December of 2021! She bought it, recharted it, and here it is - 3 months later! She loves the chunky people, and the fact that that little girl who stitched it - Cathcart - misspelled her name in it! 237 Years old, the original was done in wool thread. Re-charted for DMC, you can look at the Gentle Art Simply Wools for that wool alternative! Cathcart's sampler finishes 13 x 15 on 36ct. There is a bit of history in here, and after you read all of it, you're just in love with this fun little sampler! Again, a beautiful publication to page through and dream of projects still to be!
  • Jane Summer's Work 1831 This is a neat one. Theresa talks about all the favorite classic motifs in samplers - this one ticks all the boxes for her! Gorgeous pots and flowers, neat borders... this one is generous at 14 x 16 on 32ct. Which - - she says - - is a 'good size' for a girl her age when she did it 200 years ago! Huge chart, fun info inside about the piece!
  • Throw Wide the Windows is simply the small take-out of the house from the larger Jane Summer piece. If you like just that and don't want the stress of the whole larger chart staring at you - get the little version! I like the dark band above the house, and I think it'd be pretty repeated below too. Charted for hand-dyeds or DMC, this finishes just 6 x 11 on 18/36ct.
  • Antique Cats & Crowns - This is the 6th in Theresa's set of little 'Antique Things' collection! We have keys, teacups, rabbits and baskets, scissors and birds - and they are a lovely set of cushioned designs. Grab any fabric in your stash you like - find a color of thread that goes with it... each of these is adorned with a bit of antique lace - which is always fun to find at a flea market! Presented in a small chart format. There is a pic on the back cover of the rest of companion designs - as a treat!

Amazonia by Laurel Burch for Mill Hill! - click for more
Presenting Amazonia from Laurel Burch for Mill Hill
The Mill Hill People have adapted 4 new designs by Laurel Burch in to Cross Stitch. Animals from the Rainforests of the Amazon... aren't they awesome? Worked on 14ct Olive Green perforated paper, the colors in these are stunning - the animals are bold and stylized - and they are just dynamite!

Complete kits include the chart, paper, flosses, beads and needles. They are not solid beading - just enough glitz to highlight textures and give these animals personality. We have Giraffes, Leopards, a Mom Monkey with her baby, and Zebras - with wild eyes! Mill Hill makes frames for these... available separately.

We have added new designs to our The TraLaLa Collection page.
All are presented in chart format, most are coded for European hand-dyed flosses and/or Gentle Art Sampler Threads, and DMC. You can always Google conversions, but from the chart cover pics you'll get a pretty good idea of what you like and can use. Click through to see the rest.
    NEW! Ornament Fraises - A sweet strawberry pincushion perched among birds, berries and spools of threads, the main design finishes about 6 inches square on 36ct. Don't miss the two small fobs in the cover pic! Take-outs from the main design, more spools and berries.. very cute and quick. This is the newest design.
  • Souris Bobines features six tiny stitching mice - all tucked between spools of sewing thread. There is a real cute spool pin cushion in here, and scissors poking out of a spool as well, stitch this all together or take out some of the motifs. Measuring 205 x 58, it'll finish 3-1/2 x 13 on 32ct... so actually pretty generous in size!
  • Fraises de Noel - Measuring 95 x 151 in stitch count, each of these berry-shaped cushions will finish approx about 3 x 5, I THINK! Math is kind of hard to figure out on a CONE shape! Santa and his reindeer, and a little snowman amidst flakes and winter flowers... these are coded for DMC or Gentle Art hand-dyeds - just really cute! Both designs in the chart.
  • ABC Fraises - A sweet 5-inch pin cushion design, it measures 85 in stitch count. If you do it over one on 28 Lugana, it'll be only 3 x 3!

Christmas Alphabet by Romy from Romy's Creations - All the way from Italy!
The Christmas Alphabet - This is the first half of the alphabet stitched into pin cushions or ornaments - one for every letter. By Romy's Creations, they come two letters to a chart pack... and so far we have A through L! Super cute... you can peruse the set so far, and see of you want just some or all of them. Romy is from Austria... and she does her own line of hand-dyed flosses, so we'll have those available for this Christmas set for a limited time. The charts are coded for DMC as well. Each letter finishes about 3 x 3... and you should invest in about a half yard of fabric to make sure they match. We have an auto-ship for he remaining letters ... check out that option, too.

Needfuls, Colonial Blooms, Philadelphia Vine and Schoolgirl Samplings from The Scarlett House
Scarlett House's new offerings are here... click the pics to see more as well. As always, Tanya's charts are beautifully presented in chart format.
  • Needfuls - A charming collection of cushioned designs - each one measures 100 x 100 in stitch count. Tanya has a coverlet-inspired piece, a quilt, a cushion to feature your favorite old buttons, an English sampler alphabet, and finally the one in the forefront - with all the fun antique tools pictured! It's easy to miss the stitched tape measure and spool borders on there. All are stitched with Classic's hand-dyed flosses. The chart pack includes all 5 designs.
  • Colonial Blooms - LOVE this... two different fabric options are presented, and believe it or not, both are stitched using the same colors! (except that Collards is used in the lighter version only.) Luscious blooms spilling everywhere!
  • Philadelphia Vine 1755 Sampler - We don't have much info on this one yet... but it finishes 10 x 15 on 40ct... it looks very English to me - all the traditional colors, borders and motif shapes... and it has a very good and sound verse!
  • Schoolgirl Samplings - A nice trio of cushions - kind of reminds me that pieces in a set CAN be done on different fabrics and still compliment each other. You could do your initials and age and date on one... and do them for all the past stitchers in your family - or just USE your family names so you don't have random, strange names peeking out of your filled bowl of cushions! Really a pretty idea... and HERE is something to use one of your grandmother's silver trays for - don't the creams and reds look good against that tarnished patina?

  • Peony Bouquet is Kimberly's Market Exclusive Limited Edition design this year. Presented in fully-kitted format. Stitched on 36ct hand-dyed linen, it features a very soft vase of lavish blooms - all stitched with soft, dusty colors. Kimberly has included antiqued lace trim, coordinating backing fabric and hand-dyed velveteen to make the scissor pocket she shows on the pattern. A very pretty little cushion, it'll finish approx 4 x 5.
  • Dutch Rose Kit - another beautiful little floral cushion design. Again stitched on 36ct hand-dyed linen, this one includes the charm, silk ribbon and hand-made antique lace trim. A little smaller than Peony at 3 x 4-ish.
  • Patriotic Heart Kit - A softer take on stars and stripes, this complete kit offers you 36ct hand-dyed linen (I think it's putty - but not sure.) The coordinating hand-dyed ribbon and ball trim to match the threads.
  • Memories - Kimberly did a fun beach-y thing... Memories features three different framing borders of waves, crabs, seahorses, seaweed and tiny swimming fish. 'Our memories of the ocean will linger on long after our footprints in the sand are gone.' The beach chair is neat - there is a whole little scene along the bottom. Stitched on Weeks Dye Works 36ct Confederate Gray hand-dyed linen using Weeks cottons, this will finish about 8 x 10. We have BEAUTIFUL pin and button options by Puntini - little sand dollars and lighthouses... all sorts of cute mini things - I think they would be great together with this design!
  • Dutch Rose Garden Sampler 1849 - Wow, look at these gorgeous motifs scattered about in this! Stitched on Weeks 36ct Parchment Linen with multiple skeins of 17 shades of Weeks hand-dyed flosses, this will finish about 14-1/2 x 15-1/2. If you don't think you're up to a larger piece like this - DO THOSE MOTIFS as individual cushions! What a gorgeous set of smalls to nestle in a bowl... use Kimberly's finishing ideas from the rest of her cushions as inspiration for yours. This is just an exquistite piece - presented in chart format.
Vintage Acorns from Jeannette Douglas Acorn Tray Set from Jeannette Douglas Matter in Hand from Jeannette Douglas Quaker Star Delight from Jeannette Douglas
New Arrivals from Jeannette Douglas
Jeannette has 6 new releases that came home with us from Market. All available as leaflets this time around... most are coded for DMC's and hand-dyeds... here we go!
  • Vintage Acorns - This is the 5th in the Vintage Series, roughly the same size as the rest (Flowers, Birds, Stars and Animals). It is a lovely medley of all things ACORN! Finishing only 7 x 8 on 40ct... you can choose just about any neutral fabric for this and enjoy stitching with the hand-dyeds from Weeks, Gentle Art and Classic.
  • Acorn Tray Set - What a fun combo of designs matching the Stitch Tray, and Flower Tray. The plump drum-shaped pin cushion features a large acorn with specialty stitches to accent the tiny band sampler inside the tray. Then, add the teeny scissor fob, and you have a three-piece set of smalls. All feature trim by Lady Dot, and since Jeannette has chosen lots of luscious hand-dyed silks for this - there is a thread pack available as well.
  • Matter in Hand - This charming sampler (139 X 164) says CROSS STITCH in 8 languages! Jeannette knows we love to hold 'matter in hand' - our needle in one hand and linen in the other. Just like her Christmas and Halloween samplers, she has Cross Stitch spelled in French, Spanish, English, German, Dutch, Italian, Chinese and Russian... because she knows that needlework crosses all language barriers for sure! Stitched with hand-dyed cottons, or her DMC conversion.
  • Quaker Star Delight - A charming splash of little Quaker Stars cover both the mattress and drum cushions in this set of smalls. Stitched with Weeks and Classic hand-dyed flosses, they feature Lady Dot velveteen and chenille, and Jeannette does include those micro-buttons featured on the mattress with her leaflet.

Lady Katherine Kitty and Sir Perceval Puppy - Hello and Goodbye!
from Summer House Stitche Workes
This is a pair of stitched needle cases that features the front of the cat or dog on the front, and their backside on its backside. Then, open your stitched case to find little mice stitched on the inside 'endpapers' of Katherine's, and little dog bones inside of Perceval's.

Too darn cute! Worked on 32ct Flax linen with good old DMC floss, they measure 6 x 4 when open - so a mere 3 x 4 when closed. What a fun place to use a cute animal charm or button if you have one.
Little Sherpa Scissor and Accessory Holder - click for more
Little Sherpa Scissor and Accessory Holder
On my GOSH, this is the CUTEST little scissor holder! I have put our 4-inch Margaret DOVO scissors in here along with a package of needles so you can gauge overall size. Slightly weighted and stuffed, it features a fabric-lined slip-pocket that will hold scissors, knitting needles, a stiletto, thread rippers and catchers, a pen or pencil - just whatever tools you need safely stowed beside you.

When you aren't stitching, your things will look happy and organized poking out from him - especially tucked up on a shelf away from curious fingers. His total length is about 6 inches, he stands 3 inches high and about 3-1/2 inches wide and weighs about 4 ounces! SO so so cute!

Delighful by Mary Englebreit
Charted by Imaginating
Well, this says it all!

Measuring only 66 x 92, it will finish approx 4 x 5 on 18/36ct, and is worked with a whopping 7 shades of DMC floss! I think we all need this!

(We added some new pics of a couple of Annie's ornament designs - originally charted in pink, we changed colors to red to really make them POP. See what you think!)
