Kind & Gentle Woodland Holiday Sampler from Artful Offerings - click for more
Kind & Gentle Woodland Holiday Sampler from Artful Offerings
*As the snow gently falls in a not-so-far-away place, a group of kind and gentle woodland animals gather to help each other decorate a feather tree in the forest - for A Christmas holiday celebration.* By Artful Offerings, the alphabet and tiny dots of stitches fill the sky with the falling snow, while everyone in attendance is here wearing their Christmas Jammies! Only two more ornaments to hang on the tree. Once again, Karina's artwork is full of wonderful balance. The horizontal lines in the border, deer jammies and feather tree let your eye travel across the design, while the letters and flakes softly interrupt - like little snowflakes!

Stitched on 36ct Seraphim Antique Lace hand-dyed linen, the chart calls for a mixture of Gentle Art Sampler Threads and DMC, and it finishes approx 11 x 7-1/2. A darker linen would be pretty for this - stitch the letters and flakes in a lighter color... or go for a lighter dusty winter-colored grey background... this is a pretty piece! Presented as a chart.

This Joyous Season from Plum Street Samplers A Mount Vernon Christmas from Plum Street Samplers Polar Rack from Plum Street Samplers
New Releases from Plum Street Samplers - due in the shop the first week of December!
Paulette Stewart has sent pics and teaser notes about her new designs...
  • This Joyous Season - Using the Christmas Carol Joy to the World as her inspiration, she's done a big red brick house with a rooftop of pomegranates. The flag behind is the Australian flag (not sure why!) but she's included a charted US flag as well. 182 x 168 - Measuring about 10 x 9 on 36ct, it calls for DMC and Weeks hand-dyeds. Lots of pretty design elements in here... you get that bottom row, the cute sleigh on the right and the awesome verse and billowing basket at the top, not to mention that cool house! (We have the 36ct Up in the Attic hand-dyed linen by Fox & Rabbit - for a limited time - fat quarters $41.50)
  • A Mount Vernon Christmas - Paulette's little dogs are named George and Martha! This pinkeep features their could-be-Mt Vernon home with a snowman perched on the roof. Paulette knows she has a 'thing' about filled rooftops... she just can't leave them empty! She lamented about the possibility of one finding a snowman on their roof and the impending snow melt and roof damage situation that would follow... but designed this anyhow! Enjoy! 112 x 62, It'll finish approx 6 x 3-1/2! Weeks hand-dyeds and Lady Dot's mini Vintage Rik Rak trim are featured.
  • Polar Rack - The latest animal stack... she has these little guys dressed in fair isle sweaters. Look a the baby bear way up there high... but LOOK at the bitty bee! He's wearing a Santa hat! (You could leave that off if Santa has already come to your house, but it's so darn cute!) This one is done on 36ct Eucalyptus by Fox & Rabbit... with Weeks, and features Lady Dot's Snow Eyelash Chenille trim. (We have the 36ct Eucalyptus linen for a short time - fat quarters $41.50.)

I'll Keep You Warm from Val's Stuff Snowtime from Val's Stuff
Snowtime & I'll Keep You Warm from Val's Stuff
Val has two new wintery designs, bright in color and quick to stitch. Each is stitched on 14ct perforated paper with DMC from your stash. The kits come with the chart, paper, back mounting felt pieces. The featured buttons and the poke includes a painted wooden skewer as well.
  • Snowtime is her winter segment of the 4-seasons Plant Poke set - mount this little guy on the provided stick and poke him into 'your bloomin' plant!' He finishes about 4 x 4, the red poinsettia is made of felt!
  • I'll keep You Warm is just a cute sunny thing to perch on your windowsill, or attach to a wooden block. It finishes about 3 x 5. Get creative with your finishing... these are too cute!

Winter Blooms, Tudor Ermine, Cozy Christmas Cat, Holiday Card 2021 - New Designs from The Blue Flower
  • Winter Blooms - They 'bloom amidst the Winter's snow.' Stitched on a wintery-gray background, this is a plump pot bursting with glorious flowers and leaves. Finishes about 5 x 7 on 36ct, Jeannine chose a mixture of DMC and some hand-dyeds.
  • Tudor Ermine - What a gorgeous border surrounding this delightful little Ermine! The entire design measures 97 stitches square - so a little over 5 inches in size on 36ct. I love the wintery evergreens, the pine cones and red berries with the snowflake touches. Just 9 shades of DMC floss, the trim is Lady Dot's Sizzle Chenille - that bright, rich red!
  • Cozy Christmas Cat - He has a tiny snowman decorating his shawl! Just 3 x 3, only 6 shades of floss... this would be pretty with that Red Sizzle trim as well.
  • Holiday Card 2021 - This little llama is all decked out for the Holiday! He's wearing his hand-knitted sweater, with coordinating scarf and socks (complete with tassels!) One version has his Christmas Tree, but both have the fun string of Christmas lights. Stitched on Lambswool linen - there are several counts to choose from, so you can make him any size you want!

Punch Needle & Primitive Stitcher Magazine - Christmas-Winter 2021 Issue Front and Back Covers - click to see more
The Punch Needle & Primitive Stitcher Christmas-Winter 2021 Issue is Here!
Always a lovely treat to page through... this year, it features 30 projects - 15 Cross Stitch and 15 Punch Needle.I always try to page through to choose just one thing to feature, and always give up - because there are so many.

Huge pictures, actual-sized cutting templates, project info right there with the pics, almost no advertising clogging up the pages, and that thick, glossy paper (that even smells good!) Just a treat to page through! This issue always runs more than the others through the year - it contains almost double the content.

Joyeux Noel #2016 from Une Croix, le temps d' un The' Deer With Mushrooms #2109 from Une Croix, le temps d' un The' Row of Gnomes #2110 from Une Croix, le temps d' un The' Row of Snowmen #1717 from Une Croix, le temps d' un The' Gingerbread Village #2018 from Une Croix, le temps d' un The'
Charming Winter and Christmas Scenes from Une Croix, le temps d' un The'
These are lovely designs charted for DMC floss and stitched on any neutral fabric color and count you choose! Truthfully, they are a challenge to describe to you because some literally have no title, and everything in the instructions EXCEPT the DMC numbers are in a foreign language! (We don't really NEED to read anything in the charts - the symbols and DMC colors are the same everywhere, it's just a little un-nerving!) Each design has single stitches scattered in the background to resemble snowflakes... you probably cannot see those in the pics, but it adds a pretty effect. Very understated... this designer has a couple of other VERY FAVORITE designs, so click the pic to see those too.
  • Joyeux Noel #2016 features a doe with her two fawns tucked between some woodland springs. Stitch count is 129 x 139 - 8 x 8-is on 32ct.
  • Deer With Mushrooms #2109 is my favorite. There is a rabbit in here, the spotted mushrooms, an acorn and fat pumpkin, along with the silent deer and lacey evergreens in the background.
  • Row of Gnomes #2110 - Darling! Five little guys all lined up - the left one looks like he's a pine cone. Different hats, cute poses, this one measures 127 x 70, and is done in the classic gnome colors of red, white and gray.
  • Row of Snowmen #1717 - A Mom, Dad and Baby - Mom is wearing a snowdress! Frosty blue packages, and super-spindly tree.
  • Gingerbread Village #2018 - Two gingerbready houses - the brick trim looks like peppermint. There is a gingerbread merrry-go-round, but the best part are those green snow-frosted trees in the background.

Fleece on Earth, Catty Cane, and Gathering Snowflakes from Luminous Fiberarts
Luminous has three new designs that we like... all three are presented as beautifully done charts with fantastic, clear pictures on their cover.
  • Fleece on Earth measures 62 x 62 in stitch count, so it'd make a perfect pin cushion for a knitter or someone who tends sheep! Cute as can be, it's charted for DMCs and a few hand-dyeds.
  • Catty-Cane is for a kitty cat lover. It measures 70 x 70 - and coded for DMC and hand-dyeds. This one would be cute with fuzzy thread for the scarf and hat trim, or metallics in the candy cane.
  • Gathering Snowflakes - This is another of Misty's monochromatic seasonal pieces - it companions several others she has so far. Choose ONE hand-dyed color of your choice and stitch away. Count on his one is 76 x 76... so 4-ish inches on 36ct.

Christmas Cups from Les Petites Croix De Lucie - click for more
Christmas Cups
from Les Petites Croix de Lucie
This is a fun chart that offers nine different teapots. (It works out to $2 per pot!) They've translated the word to CUPS, but we know they are cute whatever you call them! Coded for DMC floss, between the nine, there are 43 shades in them, and each pot measures approx 50 to 70 in stitch count.

The whole medley measures 234 x 225. I like them all together, but I'm thinking just working up one of your favorites might save on stitching time... and just one perched on the kitchen counter might be all you need!

Priscilla and Chelsea have new designs - you might not get them stitched in time for THIS Christmas, but there's always next year!

You know those kind... the card is stained and yellowed, and along with abbreviated ingredients you get the sparse instructions - mix, cut and bake. That's it! You also get a cute village along the bottom of this recipe, so it's more complete than the old recipe card. Finishes about 8 x 9 on 28ct.
  • Claus Christmas features Santa and Mrs bringing greetings. My favorite part is that row of darling reindeer, trees and elves. (I think he reindeer are really little dogs!) The trees and their pots are striped and dotted, so that's fun too. Finishes about 5-1/2 x 15-1/2 on 28ct.
  • January Calendar Crate - It's definitely sweater weather at Knit Co. All the snowmen are wearing knitted hats and scarves, and even the snowflakes look kind of knitted!

Turkey Day
from Cottage Garden Samplings
Wow, this is just the BEST turkey... can you imagine eating this regal thing? (It makes me want to serve ham this year instead of turkey!) He's so plump and fat... the colors and patterns of the feathers are stunning.

A lot of stitching in this... Vinniey, the designer, has charted that gorgeous backside of the bird with two different areas of color. So your shading WILL look like it does in the pic, if you use the called-for hand-dyed colors. Just gorgeous, no verse needed; this finishes approx 5 x 5-1/2 x 7 on 36ct.
Blessed Assurance from Heartstring Samplery
Blessed Assurance

Halloween from Madame Chantilly
from Madame Chantilly
This is a fun design - organized to spell the holiday. WHAT ABOUT stitching the stack of books and jack by themselves - even stitching all the letters by themselves, making individual cushions and stuffing a basket?

Super cute, every letter is decorated with pumpkins or ghosts, and the little kitty is just the cutest! Measuring 180 x 138, the chart is coded for DMC flosses. No fabric is suggested - which means the sky is your limit!

When Witches Go Riding
from The Tiny Modernist
You might have been seeing this design these past few months, while the pieces and parts were releasing, but we've waited until we had the whole set together to offer it. Stitched on 32ct Natural Linen, the whole thing measures 143 x 234 - so 9 x 14-1/2 on 32ct. Worked with B5200 (2), one skein each of Classic's Mossy and Rainy Day, Baking Tin (3), and 2 skeins of DMC black. We like it because it's so monochromatic, but not really!

Witches go riding, black cats are seen, the moon laughs and whispers 'tis near Halloween!
All 4 charts gathered together.

Stack is done on Picture This Plus's Kermit hand-dyed linen - a great color - and measures approx 2-1/2 x 8-1/2. The little Jack -in-the-Pot will make a cute pin cushion because it's just 2 x 3-1/2!
  • Trick or Treat features another silly stack - ghosts and a little kitty wearing a sweater.... and almost the same little haunted house on the hill.

Miniature Sampler Pin Drums from Olde Colonial Designs
Oh my gosh, these are the CUTEST little cushions! Designed by Olde Colonial's Kelly, each is stitched on one-inch wide 26ct German linen banding. The cut of band in the kit in only 6 inches long... so when rolled, your tiny drum is only that 1-inch high by approx 1-1/2 inches wide. You are stitching with one thread of floss over one thread on the band... so each design is full of tiny details. We have three different designs so far... more are in the works... but get these stitched first!

Smelling the Daisies has bunnies in their flower garden.
Waiting for Santa has tiny evergreens and reindeer on it.

New Offerings from Heartstring Samplery's Beth Twist!

The Collectors, Hocus Pocus and Something Wicked This Way Comes from Autumn Lane Stitchery
Autumn Lane has some new designs -- some a little more 'intense' than others!
  • The Collectors are three women of the Salem Witch Trials fame. You get the sordid details in the chart! Stitched on Yule hand-dyed fabric by Seraphim, you'll need 5 skeins of DMC 310, 3 of #500 and 2 of 501.
  • Hocus Pocus is stitched on a barnwood hand-dyed color - kind of a recipe book for all the tools you might need to concoct a great spell! Finishes approx 9 x 9 on 28ct.
  • Something Wicked This Way Comes - This one is done on Picture This Plus' haunted linen, which is a gorgeous aqua-deep sea color. You'll need 7 skeins of DMC 310! I kind of see two halves to this one - you could stitch just the top section or just the bottom part - OR the whole thing! Metallics in the windows or opalescent in the moon and ghosts would be fun too - or maybe touches of glow-in-the-dark thread or beads?

No Ordinary Cats, Mary Barton, Manon's Garden and ABC Blocks from Mojo Stitches
Presenting Mojo Stitches - We have quite an assortment of different design subjects and they are fun!
  • No Ordinary Cats - If you are a cat-lover, you'll completely agree with this statement! Fun little cushion design - stitch like this, or make it a two-sided smaller cushion!
  • Mary Barton's Work - An antique reproduction. Just a fun, colorful piece... coded for DMC or hand-dyeds, she's chosen the 'partial fading' color scheme of the original - but kept it autumnal in feel.
  • Manon's Garden - A reproduction of a small French sampler. I love all the bits of floral borders all neatly organized here, measuring 144 x 155. Coded for DMC or hand-dyeds, it finishes just 8 x 8 on 36ct! It'd be pretty framed and perched on a small easel.
  • A is for Aardvark Blocks - This is the start to a set of stitched blocks. Use them as pin cushions or to spell out a name or word to perch on a bookshelf. Each block has an upper and lower case letter as well as a range of appropriate motifs: ants, aardvarks, agapanthus, atlas moth, anchors and apples. B is for balloons, blue-bells, carpenter bees, butterflies, buttons, bobbins and bows. Each block's count is 105 x 140 - but each 'side' is really only 30 stitches in size. Bottoms are not stitched, and you can use whatever colors you want for your set - each block uses just two.

Broom Keeps from Thistles 12 Weeks to X-mas from Thistles 12 Weeks to X-Mas and Broom Keeps
from Thistles
Liezbeth has two new designs that caught my eye...
  • 12 Weeks to X-mas features 12 large-ish designs that are finished like little mittens. Each measures 50 or 60 x 80 or 90... too big for tree ornaments... so mittens it is! She has included the full-sized mitten shape template in here - it measures almost 5" across the thumb to a little over 6 inches in length. Super-cute, the pics are a challenge to see, but you get a snowman shepherd tending his sheep, a tree snowglobe, a fireplace scene, and a whole little wintery village fast asleep - waiting for Santa on Christmas Eve. Charted for Gentle Art Sampler Threads or DMC, it's a cute set of designs.
  • Broom Keeps - 5 little cushions of various sizes stitched on varied fabric - dig some fun colors out of your stash! Coded for DMC or Gentle Art Sampler Threads, if you don't have that COOL BROOM, you'll have to settle for fillers for your bowl of candy!

A Pocket for Potions, Nutcrackers 3, and Birdy Stitching Roll From La D Da!
Three designs by Lori - Potions is new, Nutcracker-Time is coming, and Birdy Roll is old, but still cute!
  • A Pocket for Potions provides you storage for your toad's wort, spider venom, eye of newt, hogwart, cod liver oil and witch hazel. Just in case your family doesn't like what you made for dinner - now you can find *just the right ingredient* to 'add that little something extra!' What a fun piece to make into a little bag to hang on a kitchen knob or perch on a windowsill. Stitch it on anything you want - Lori used only 310 and 838 - brown and black.
  • Nutcrackers 3 - Christmas is coming... get these little guys done - they'd make a cute block stand-up decoration. Measuring 119 x 108 - they are only 27 x 85 - so individually on 36ct they are 1-1/2 x 4!
  • Birdy Stitching Roll - We cleaned in the inventory aisle and found that we have several of these charts - and they weren't on the website anymore! Originally offered as a kit (I believe about 7 years ago!), the birds and basket stitched area you see is the backside - the outside - of the roll. Lori has turned it over for you to see that she's lined the backside with fabric and Week's hand-dyed wool... and added thread rings for her flosses. You can see her name and date stitched there - that is really on the other side - below that row of diamond-shaped motifs. Really a pretty little piece stitched with Weeks flosses of Adobe, Cocoa, Molasses, Dolphin, Seagull, Charcoal, Olive and Teal Frost.

Teri Richards has discovered stitching on the Mad for Plaid Project Bags! 'Stitch' is her single chart design that includes the big word, along with a tiny scissor fob and pin cushion - on linen - version. The project bags come in three colors and measure 10-1/2 x 13 x 3-1/4, with a top zipper closure. Berry, Charcoal or Olive, her 'Shepherd's Bushy colors' will work on any of the three colors of project bags available. (There are also gingham SQUARE mesh pouches in pink, aqua and gray available too! See below... we put that entry up for you, too.)

'Stitch' measures just 28 x 54. On the project bags, you are using #5 Pearl cotton - over two threads. (Hint: use up your stocking threads!) On the project bags, stitching measures approx 3 x 6-ish. Use the same design on 32ct Waterlily linen to stitch the little cushion. Teri has a tiny chart on here for the fob - it's less than an inch! What a fun new idea... check out the project bags, and see your options!

A pair of ornament designs, presented separately, they use DMC and finish about 4 x 7 on 32ct. Kind of large for ornaments - they'd be cute hanging from a doorknob too. Each comes with two bells - kitty has a love hart, and dog has a little name tag.

Judy Whitman has 5 new releases that are here.
Each chart has multiple pics inside of various other fabrics or colorways.
  • Alphabet in the Round #406 features a font from an antique French sampler that Judy has manipulated into small rounds, initials and monograms. She's played with color combinations as well.
  • Be Merry #407 is simply a statement for the season... the finishing can be a no-sew... just grab a bottle of your favorite glue!
  • Christmas Smalls #408 includes 5 pretty florals - I think the best one is the little strawberry - but it's the hardest to see in the pics! The tree piece has a pocket on the backside for scissors, and while it looks Christmassy - the other designs are simply small colorful florals that work for any season.
  • Dashing Through The Snow #409 is charming! The same tiny sampler is stitched on three different fabrics in three different colorways - how different they look from each other! We love that red one - it companions Joyeux Noel, O Christmas Tree and Tidings of Joy - all little one-over-one samplers stitched in white on red! (We have that red fabric in three different counts too!)
  • French Christmas Tags II #410 Small single birds meant to be ornaments, finished onto wooden boards, but you could use pretty papers as well.

Keys to Happiness from Monticello Stitches - click to see more Make Me A Blessing from Monticello Stitches - click to see more Make Me A Blessing and Keys to Happiness from Monticello Stitches
These two pieces caught our attention!
  • Make Me a Blessing to Someone Today - Does that mean I need a lot of work to BE a blessing to someone? Kind of makes you think a little, huh? Stitched on 36ct this finishes a huge 15 x 16... so definitely a bold prayer for that self help! Charted for DMC, it uses 24 different shades - multiple skeins of 6 of the colors.
  • Keys to Happiness Never put the keys to your happiness in someone else's pocket. Wow, there's another powerful life lesson! (Follow this advice especially if you want to be a blessing to someone else today!) We like this one a lot. You could always hang it right above the family house and car key rack (if you still use keys!). Coded for DMC, on 32ct it finishes about 9 x 11. Doesn't need to say much more, does it?

The Wizard of Oz, Heat Wave and Memento Mori from Satsuma Street
Jodi Rice has a few new designs presented in leaflet format - her books are always bright, pretty and super-clear and easy to work from.
  • The Wizard of Oz is CHARMING! First, it's a fun and different shape. Next, look into each of the 5 big sections... they tell the whole story. We get Glinda and the Munchkins at the top, Dorothy, Toto and the Scarecrow, Lion, and Tin Man all following the Yellow Brick Road. At the other side is the field of Poppies that puts Dorothy to sleep, then the Wicked Witch of the West and her flying monkeys. Finally the wizard flying back to the (Omaha wasn't it?) State Fair! Emeralds garnish the corners and the Yellow Brick Road and rainbows surround all. With a stitch count of 184 x 184, since it teases your eye by its shape, it really is 12 x 12 from emerald to emerald! Jodi has two 11 x 17 separate colored charts in here - two-sided. You get the entire scene charted in color, then huge individual colored charts of the back stitch details in each. Choose a mint green or Star Sapphire colored fabric... lots of count options for this, coded for DMC.
  • Heat Wave - All these bright, hot colors - it just makes you happy! Stitch count of 188 x 90, this finishes approx 13-1/2 x 6-1/2 on 14... although this is worked on an oatmeal-colored fabric, I think white would be stunning!
  • Memento Mori - After watching the movie 'Coco' I have a better understanding of Sugar Skulls, and their heartwarming, family spirit. So, these are happy and colorful. Worked on black - any count you can SEE, the stitch count is 71 x 257 - so they finish approx 5 x 18 on 14/28ct. Coded for lots of bright and pretty DMC flosses.

  • First Snowfall is on Weeks 36ct Confederate Gray, stitched with 7 shades of Weeks hand-dyed flosses, and finishes about 6 x 5-1/2.
  • Butternut House is also on 36ct, but it is worked with regular 'ol DMC and Charcoal hand-dyed. You kind of miss the greyed-green 'lawn' of pumpkins down at the bottom, but then, you notice the cauldrons!

Chronicles of Oline Marie II from Summer House Stitch Workes - click for more Winter Whites from Summer House Stitch Workes - click for more Winter Whites and Chronicles of Oline Marie II
from Summer House Stitche Workes
I love these two new designs by Beth Ann...
  • Winter Whites is a soft piece stitched on natural linen in just Whitewash, Sandcastle and Flatfish Weeks Dye Works hand-dyed flosses. It's not very big - just 109 x 45, so it finishes just under 3 x 7, and if you make that baby drum - it's about 2 x 3! What I am so excited about as well, is that we are including the Lady Dot Creates finishing set with the pattern! You get the round matboard mounting piece, the Lady Dot Snow Chenille, the Weeks Houndstooth Wool cut in here, interfacing, the snowflake charm and the old fashioned safety pin the flake hangs from. NO chasing around to gather all the pretty and matching ingredients! Presented as the chart with finishing packet, linen and threads are available separately.
  • Chronicals of Oline Marie II - These are take-outs from a Norwegian sampler stitched by 14 yr old Oline Marie in 1844. The bird is shown on a needlebook, and the larger 91 x 91 stitch floral piece is mounted diagonally on a little velvet pillow made from Lady Dot's String Bean hand-dyed velveteen. Coded for either silks or DMC, colors featured are 520. 841, 733, 640, 833, 676 and 543 - so soft and pretty!

Gone Nuts Finishing Pack from Lady Dot Broom With a View Finishing Pack from Lady Dot Limited Edition Finishing Packs from Lady Dot Creates

  • Broom With a View contains 3 of ther hand-dyed velveteens, 5 different ribbon trims and a little haunted house charm. The idea is to provide you a coordinating color assortment who when you are finishing a set of cushions or ornaments - you have enough to finish your set with complimentary colors.
  • Gone Nuts features her hand-dyed Osnaburg - a heavy, nubby cotton There are 5 different ribbons in here as well as a cool squirrel charm, and a little pair of acorns. Fabrics are approx 10 x 10, trims are approx 24-30 inches in length.
Lots of New Mini Needle Cases and Matching Fobs from the Fern Ridge Ladies - click to see more Wooden Scissor Tray from the Fern Ridge Ladies - click to see more
By the Light, Summoning, Buttons and Black Lace, Under The Sea, Family Fourth
from Fern Ridge Collections
Pat and Peggy have been super-creative these past few months dreaming up all sorts of cute new cases and Peyote Beaded Scissor Fobs! They are all due in the shop this week, and until i can get my hands on the actual kits - I cannot tell you fabrics and colors... so will fill in that info ASAP! The stitched cases are all completely kitted - finish about 3 x 6 and then fold. The completely kitted beaded fobs (which take between 3 and 4 hours to complete) are generally an inch and half log, BEFORE all that lavish beaded fringe they love to add. The kits are stuffed full of cool stuff... and they are including pretty good inside pics for your finishing info. All fobs are $37, all cases run $36.
  • Family Fourth - Looks like a schoolhouse - I think the green beads on the fob are sculpted flower shapes!
  • By the Light has crows and pumpkins - lots of delicious black and orange beads.
  • Under the Sea - These two always find the CUTEST seaside-themed charms and use the prettiest aqua blue fabrics on their mermaid projects... look at those mermaid charms and that star fish!
  • Buttons and Black Lace is a little more subdued... really pretty metal and pearl buttons to add a silver hue to the classy black and white.
  • Summoning is the back of a little witch working on her spell! The artwork on the outside of the case is the same as the beaded fob... cute charms too!
  • Then, the Wooden Scissor Tray! Wow, is this cool! The Girls have commissioned wooden storage trays to display your scissors with all your gorgeous finished fobs attached - and then remembered to add storage for the matching stitched cases! Measuring about 2-1/2 inches high and about 4 x 7 in size, you have 12 holes here to hold scissors, and room for about 6 cases inside! You COULD use this tray for other scissor fobs and little cases and cushions as well... we won't tell! Really a neat storage piece - it really shows off all your hard work, and lets you enjoy all those stunning beads!

  • Autumn Berries - A trio of pin cushions, I like that little scarecrow, all three designs are in this chart.

  • Leafy Sidewalks - Five different thoughts, 3 different borders, stitch them in any combo you wish. They can be as large as 5 x 8 or smaller finishes to perch on a windowsill.
  • Life is Better Meow - Well, you certainly 'get this' if you have a kitty! Do NOT however, stitch this as a new toy for that little cat!
Linda is COMING to the Silver Needle in May of 2022! A small weekend class in our She Shed classroom space adjoining the shop, one of the projects will be a linen berry.

Presenting Home Sweet Home - A New Stitch-Along beginning November of 2021
from By the Bay Needleart
Donna Bayliss is beginning a new mega-piece - this one features 12 different *home scenes,* one chart releasing each month till next November. The small parts measure only 42 x 70 each, but together, the entire piece will measure 168 x 336. You can choose whatever fabric you wish... on 32ct, it'll all finish 10 x 21 - so not really so overpowering and 'mega' at all! Donna always has neat trees. Look at this... every month's house has different landscaping...but they all go together with her willowy-billowy trees!

Coded for DMC, the entire 'threads needed' and layout info is included in the first chart... and all charts (during the stitch-along-year) will run $7.00 each. (Next year, when they are all released and the Stitch Along is finished, they'll all go up to $9 individually.) Charts are not sold 'single-y' this first year, which means if you want to pick and choose your favorite houses... either register to get the whole set and skip some, or wait till next year to get single charts (at the higher price.) Just so pretty... we're taking Sign-Ups now to begin shipping the day ours arrive to us! Maybe wait until your first chart comes to decide fabric color and count?

Mouse's Halloween Stitching from Tiny Modernist - click to see more Mouse's Schoolhouse from Tiny Modernist - click to see more Little Teacher and Stitcher Mice by Tiny Modernist
Oh my gosh, these are so cute! Mouse's Halloween Stitching came out last year, but Mouse's Schoolhouse is new. Presented in small card format, each of these is printed in a full color chart, and they finish just under 4 x 4 on 32/16ct.

Halloween uses only 7 colors of DMC or hand-dyed; Teacher uses 8. Hallo's pumpkin is really a pin cushion with scary stitched pins poking from the top! You might want to use some furry wool thread for the mice, add some metallic for those scissors and moon, and maybe find a few beads to use on the sunflower's middle. Quick and colorful, they'd be fun stuffers in between your halloween pumpkins and mini dried Indian corn ears.

After the Rainbow, Bittersweet Village, Token of Fall and Two Pumpkins Bright
by Hello from Liz Matthews

Several new designs by Liz Matthews...
  • After the Rain - I LOVE this one! Stitched on any basic fabric you want... all the rainbows are stitched with the same color palette of DMC floss, only they're all mixed up! 171 x 181, you can even choose your OWN colors... but be easy on yourself and choose the same number of shades as Liz used... subbing one color for the other. That way, your balance of color is the same.
  • Bittersweet Village - Oh this is pretty. The leaf shapes really catch your eye - horizontally and vertically - your eye is teased everywhere with this explosion of color and shape repetition. Measures 104 x 96... so about 6 x 6 on 32ct!
  • Token of Fall - Kind of a fun bird with swirly 'feathers.'
  • Two Pumpkins Bright - These little guys are cute - we like the dangling spiders and the confetti-look of the background. Those spiders would be fun to do in beads or black metallic, and so would the pumpkin eyes. This measures only 73 x 95, so little at 4 x 5 on 36ct!

Mill Hill's Beaded Holiday 2021 Gingerbread Kits!
Ohhh... a new set of small ornament-sized designs is on the way to us... due in the shop any minute! A set of 6 gingerbread people and cottages along with a stocking and tree pair, these are worked on 14ct brown perforated paper with DMC floss and Mill Hill Beads.

You probably know the drill for these - cute, small, complete little kits - they look awesome on your Christmas Tree and are really fun to stitch!

Sweet and Sharp Macarons from Clover - click to see more Sweet and Sharp Macarons from Clover
These are the cutest little magnetic needle minders by Clover that double as cleaners as well. Raspberry or Pistachio - choose your 'flavor' (they do look good enough to eat!) Measuring 1-3/8 inches in diameter and about 1/2 an inch thick, they feature a rare-earth magnet inside somewhere to hold your needles, and feature a soft, pliable 'filling' that is made from cotton and nylon to clean your needles.

Kind of pricey at $12.00 each, we decided that the trip to France to eat a REAL Macaron would be much more expensive, so these are second best. (Please, though, DO keep these away from small children... they really ARE charming, cute, and look good enough to eat!) Something fun for your stitching stash!

Susie Susie Samplermaker from Lindy Stitches - click for more Autumn Strolls from Lindy Stitches - click for more Autumn Strolls and Susie Susie Samplermaker
from Lindy Stitches
Lindy Stitches has a couple of new designs that are fun...
  • Autumn Strolls make thankful souls - I guess because they are out walking instead of being cooked! Stephanie loves turkeys... so stitch these little guys; do not have them for dinner! Finishes 7 x 10 on 36, this is a medium hand-dyed blue linen background, and threads are a mixture of DMC, Weeks and Classic.
  • Susie Susie Samplermaker is a companion to Mary Mary Needleworker. Finishing about 12-1/2 x 10 on 32ct, it's stitched Classic, Weeks and DMC. The verse asks about Susie's garden, which is probably NOT growing too well as she is inside stitching samplers rather than keeping away the hungry deer in her yard!

Harry Potter, Star Wars & Frozen II Scissors!
Wow... something fun through our doors this week! Licensed by all the right people... (Disney, WBEI and LFL) we are excited to offer these fun 6-inch scissors in protective 'pleather' decorated sheaths! Each pair measures 6 inches in overall length, and their companion (plasticy-leathery) sheaths measure 5 inches. Tips are not super pointy, and I wouldn't use these to cut fabrics... but the blades are sharp and they work great on paper and threads.

We think Santa needs to bring these for ANYBODY who loves Star Wars, Harry Potter or Frozen. (They'd make great stocking stuffers). Each style's decorations are enameled on the handles, and they look really nice. We think because of the 6-inch size they'd be good for anyone in 5th or 6th grade and older - definitely not for little-little kids. I tried to shoot pics of them with both front and back sheath decorations showing... we just think they're pretty cool around here!

Colorful Soft-Handled Small Scissors
These are fun little scissors - really good for cutting metallics because they are serrated.

Back to the Grind, Follow Your Heart and Built on Love from Silver Creek Samplers
Silver Creek Samplers has some new releases, one for your kitchen, one for your stitching nest, and one to stitch for a special wedding this year or next!
  • Back to the Grind - just a simple thing, about 9-1/2 x 4 on 18 Aida or 6ct linen - it uses just regular 'ol awesome DMC floss! (You know it would be cool to stitch the grinder top in a vintage black metallic, and add some antiqued gold metallic to the big letters.)
  • Follow Your Heart needs to be a little pin cushion to keep by the side of your chair! If you stitch it over one on 28ct Mushroom Lugana (which is actually pretty easy to do), it'd be LESS than 3 x 3!
  • Built on Love - What a cool wedding sampler - not out of date, not fussy like the stuff we used to do in the 80's - just something that a '30-something' would actually LIKE to hang in their house! *And so... together they built a life they loved...* (There's room for tiny initials and important date) Change the brown word to gray, if that's the better color/decor option, this is simple and really nice. Measuring 163 x 71... it'll finish 10 x 4-1/2 on 32ct.

  • We Are the Sampler Makers - A fun piece for a fellow needle artist, this measures 167 x 106 - the model is on 36 but you can choose anything you like to work on! Weeks hand-dyed flosses are called for on the chart.

New Samplers by Brenda Keyes of The Sampler Company are on the way to us!

Tall Ships by Brenda Keyes -- click to see a larger view! Dwelling Place Sampler by Brenda Keyes -- click to see a larger view!
  • Dwelling Place measures 204 x 205 in stitch count. It features a relaxed and winding floral border that surrounds the grandest of houses! Can you see 2021 stitched in Roman Numerals up on the roof? Kind of looks like a widow's walk!
  • Tall Ships measures 287 x 287. It's full of tiny motifs, a little village, a church, cool ships and even a mermaid. The verse reads: I must go down to the sea again. To the lovely sea and sky, and all I ask if a tall ship and a star to steer her by.
Both are presented as charts. They look good on just about anything you choose... we have some of hers stitched on 28ct Lugana over one - with a half cross - and they are stunning. Buttttt... you choose what you like best to work with - they are coded for DMC floss.

Pam and Susan have a new Haunted Halloween Party House for 2021. *Come Ghoulies, Shriek, Growl and Dance!* Joining their collection of other busy houses... this one is just as colorful as the others, but a little different in finished size. It's a whopping 28 x 14 on 32ct Picture This Plus 'Haunted' linen, and it's garnished with a collection of JABCO clay spiders, bats, pumpkins and a little caldron button.

We have several of their models in the shop, and it's fun to find smaller take-out design areas to stitch smaller versions. The dramatic fabric highlights all the cute little ghosts and kids, the trees are all scraggly, the spider webs are thin metallic... a lot of fun things happening on ALL of their Halloween and Christmas Scenes! Presented as a chart... fabrics, buttons and extensive thread list (of 49 hand-dyed skeins or 34 Skeins of DMC and the metallic) are all offered separately. (Fabric and button info TBA)

  • Home Together #5 and #6 finish out this charming set of 6 small designs that could be made into pin cushions... or the DARLING little stitched linen cube! I'm not sure you'd want to poke pins into this though!) There's no place like home, and East or West, home is best are the two that round out the set of 6 sides. Each comes as it's own individual chart, so you can pick and choose which ever you like. We have all of them, so take a look. It's been a really nice set of designs, inspired - of course - by our year of 2020!
  • Joy Be Thine Sampler - This looks very involved and scary to stitch, but Jeannette has used only Straight Stitches and Cross in this! Not too many design details yet, but it's done in brick reds, teals, creams, butterscotch golds and browns and a little mossy green. Presented in leaflet format with the wonderfully tempting thread and embellishment pack - she honestly is calling this a 'next step piece' to try a little specialty stitching!
  • Chubby Bird - Well, isn't he cute? This is offered in small chart format... I don't know what kind of thread he uses... but he does finish about 3 inches in diameter.

    The chart now has those flowers graphed for you instead... and we think it's just as cheerful and fun. Stitched on 32ct Country Vintage Mocha Linen, this finishes about 5 x 10. (If your colors in the pics are totally different... know that I took the model pic in the shop - the real, original stitched piece. The other picture is from the chart cover, which to me, is more washed out looking than the real thing!

Complete kits contain the charts, flosses, beads, fabric and needles.

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!
  • Christmas Day Santas - This year we get Santa all throughout Christmas Day! "Morning, Giving, and Memories" - He's having morning breakfast in his jammies - wearing his bunny slippers! Coffee and Candy Cane in hand too! He's ready for gift giving in his knitted sweater, and finally serving turkey dinner and the end of the day. (The dog looks a little more excited about THIS meal than he was about breakfast!) Presented as complete kits of 14ct perforated paper with all the necessary beads and flosses, each Santa finishes about 3-1/2 to 4 inches tall. These little guys are the 23rd year... so now there are 69 Santas from all different countries doing all sorts of sports and hobbies all through the year!
  • 2021 Snow Fun Charmed Ornaments - This year's set of 6 snowmen are Wishing, Trimming, Skating, Tumbling, Cooking and Giving... all stitched in floss and beads on 14ct perforated paper. Each is garnished with a Mill Hill charm or treasure... and would probably welcome a few more beads from that old stash of yours! They finish about 3 inches in size, just cute and fun!

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!

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.

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!'

Antrim's Folly
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!
Yes, there's even MORE!
