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 will be here any day! We're ready to reserve copies for you!
  • 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.

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.

The Stitched Pouches by Teri Richards... Stitch - Heart - Joy - Flag - Scary - Quilt
This is an ever-growing collection of cute Shepherd's Bushy designs that Teri has stitched over two 'threads' of the Sew Emma 'Mad For Plaid' Plastic Mesh Pouches. The pouches themselves come in six colors - Berry, Gray, Olive, Bluebell, Peony and Misty... and measure about 10-1/2 x 13 x 3-1/4 with a zipper top closure. Really nice as project pouches, Teri has added Shepherd's Bush Charm to them!

Each of her designs is done with #5 Pearl Cotton - all the same colors you've used in their Christmas Stockings - a combination of solids and hand-dyeds. Along with your stitched pouch, there are designs for tiny stitched scissor fobs as well that will match. Simple and quick to stitch... they'd be neat gifts for stitcher friends!

Quilt is the newest design, shown on the Bluebell Bag. Keep in mind that you CAN mix and match these bag colors to the stitching! It's Ok to put FLAG on the Bluebell, or Quilt on the Berry, or Scary on the Olive... you get the idea!

Deck the Halls Reprint from Blackbird Designs - click for more Deck the Halls Reprint-open from Blackbird Designs - click for more
Deck the Halls from Blackbird Designs has been reprinted!
This is a funky-little-sized book - 6 x 4 inches in size. It features 6 pin cushion-sized designs that can be framed or finished into strawberry-shaped cushions or ornaments. The actual-sized finishing template is included in the book - and sized for 36ct linen.

Just pretty little things, I think Christmas Cactus is my favorite! All 6 were designed by Barb, and the book was originally published in 2018. So... if you stash doesn't have a copy - it needs one!

4 Lovely Designs from Serenita di Campagna
So beautiful, these 4 charts feature soft colors and delightful designs - I just wish the cover pics were about 5 times the size they are!
  • #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
Paulette sent out her previews today for her new designs - scheduled to arrive in the shop next week!
  • 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!

Sailing Dreams from Barbara-Ana Designs - click to see more Sailing Dreams from Barbara-Ana Designs
Sailing Dreams is the 9th 'Girl' inspired by the artwork of Mexican Modernist Artist Frida Kahlo. Charming, Colorful, Bold, Whimsical - you can get lost in any of these Dreaming Ladies! Frida Kahlo is a 20th Century iconic artist who showcases Mexican culture highlighting flora and fauna in her artwork. Tulsa's Philbrook Museum of Art is actually hosting a private collection of paintings, drawings, collages and photographs of Frida and companion Diego Rivera from July 6th through September 11th, 2022. So while we think this is a fun cross stitch chart that we might want to stitch, it is really quite famous in the art world!

Barbara Ana is a cross stitch artist from Mexico - Creative Poppy is her publisher - located in Paris, France. But the last time I communicated with CP she was living in JAPAN I think! The world is a crazy, small place... it's just so much fun to enjoy so much of the world via our tiny world of Cross Stitch!
Back to Ms Sailing Dreams - she is worked with DMC on 32ct Natural and finishes just 5-1/2 x 7!

Embroidery and Punch Needle Kits from The Urban Acres
Summer Harvest Embroidery Kit Contents from The Urban Acres - click to see more Urban Acres is a new designer to our shop. Well, not 'really' - as Sallie is the daughter of one of our long-time customers! She brought these things in the other day, and told me she remembers shopping at The Silver Needle with her mom when she was little. I asked if it was a 'good memory' and she laughed and said it was. I guess we made a good impression, because here she is with her lovely surface embroidery kits and punch needle patterns! She has done an absolutely wonderful job with her designs, artwork, presentation, graphic arts, packaging, EVERYTHING.
  • Summer Harvest Embroidery - Chain, Satin, and Stem Stitches are featured in this 5-inch design embroidered on a gray background. Sallie has presented a full color diagram of the design, the full-sized iron-on transfer to apply to the provided gray base fabric. 7 Full skeins of DMC floss are included as well as the 7-inch hoop and the needles you'll need to work this. Contemporary, it'll look great in a deserving kitchen!
  • Folk Floral Bird Embroidery - A plump little pink and red bird perched on a flowering branch, this kit includes all you need... base fabric, the actual-sized transfer, DMC, the hoop - everything!
  • Folk Floral Punch Needle - Cute little blue 'thistle' flower, the design is already printed on a dusty lavender linen base fabric... uses DMC (from your stash.)
  • Wandering Strawberry - Punched on a luscious bright green base fabric, it calls for 6 shades of DMC floss.
  • Pink Floral - This one is punched on a very light, soft pastel pink background fabric - delicate and pretty. Calls for only 3362, 3012, 3033 and 783!

Stitching With The Housewives Lets Go Ride a Bike Sunflower Fields - click to see more Stitching With The Housewives Month 2 Month August - click to see more Stitching With The Housewives Joy to the World - click to see more
New Arrivals by Stitching With The Housewives!
  • Lets Go Ride a Bike - This is the first in a new series called 'Lets go Ride a Bike - Sunflower Fields.' Not much info yet... but probably a bike surrounded by seasonal decor. This one finishes approx 5 x 7.
  • Month 2 Month August - Another new series - these will all have a barn in the larger design and a companion small design - shown above in the tart tin. More cute sunflowers, this one finishes approx 6 x 9.
  • Joy to the World - What a cute frosty scene - complete with reindeer in the yard! The whole design finishes about 6 x 9... but truthfully, I love that bottom third the best!
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.

Animal Alphabet from The Blue Flower - click for more Seasons of the Heart - Summer from The Blue Flower - click for more Seasons of the Heart - Summer, and Animal Alphabet
from The Blue Flower
Jeannine McGowans' Spring releases join her growing collection of designs.
  • Seasons of the Heart - Summer - This is the second in a 4-seasons set of hearts. Based on what I have learned in the above Animal Alphabet description.. could this be a Zorro or a Cat featured on here with the summer berries and bees?
  • Animal Alphabet is done on a green hand-dyed background and worked in regular DMC - 33 shades! You'll be stitching an Armadillo, Bat, Cheetah, Dragonfly, Emu, Fennec Fox, Goose, Hare, Ibex, Jellyfish, Koi, Lyrebird, Mammoth, Narwhal, Owl, Puffin, Quetzal, Robin, Seahorse, Tiger, Urial, Vicuna, woodpecker, Xeme, Yabby and Zorro! Once you are finished, you'll know what all those animals look like too! What a fun piece - it measures 182 x 218 in stitch count.

Gone to Pieces from Long Dog Samplers - click for more Tap Dancers from Long Dog Samplers - click for more Before I Sleep from Long Dog Samplers - click for more
Just a Few New Intense-stitches from Long Dog Samplers
Actually kind of fun to work on - because you're usually using just one color of solid or hand-dyed, the trick to these is not losing your place on the chart OR your fabric! Easy Breezy, right?
  • Gone to Pieces is 170 x 256 and does use color - it's coded for Gentle Art hand-dyeds or DMC. It's full of tiny animals everywhere!
  • Tap Dancers - Measures 211 x 265 - more animals tucked everywhere - this one has dancers everywhere too! She gives you thread usage charts to help you purchase enough of a dye-lot of thread for a project - this one would use 18 skeins of DMC if you stitched it on 14ct!
  • Before I Sleep - Measures 251 x 327 - I think I would probably HAVE trouble sleeping if this were my current project! It's beautiful, full of birds and dogs and trees... and the software tells us that there are 30, 630 stitches in this - and you would need only 21 skeins of the same color to do it!

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 and Pumpkin from Stitches by Ethel - click for more Day at the Sea Shore from Stitches by Ethel - click for more Sew More The Crow from Stitches by Ethel - click for more
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!

Children's Books #2 from Susanamm - click for more Love USA from Susanamm - click for more Two Fun New Designs by Susanamm Cross Stitch
  • Love USA - This is solid stitching - measuring 197 x 104 in stitch count. That will make it 14 x 7-1/2 on 14/28ct... so you'll be crossing for a while with this one! Worked with DMC's of 221, 225, 311, 712 and 3722, it's really cool because the Star Spangled Banner words are stitched across all the stripes. I think it'd be easiest to stitch the stars first, then that background. Then the verse, and then the stripes - that way you are mostly filling in rather than counting so much. Really a striking piece - choose any fabric YOU like to work on, since this is full coverage.
  • Children's Books #2 - Kind of a funny title, but just concentrate on all these darling little creatures that belong in children's story books. Stitch the whole medley - it's about 200 x 180 - so pretty big - or just your favorite little characters. They suggest these for bibs, but little stand-up blocks might be cute too. We laugh at all the baby bibs we used to stitch 35 years ago... all that time we spent on something that would get stained the first time the baby wore it. Lets go with those nursery blocks instead! Or... a cute bedroom door name sign!
Underestimate Me from Imaginating - click for more
Underestimate Me
from Imaginating
Featuring the art of Mary Englebreit, this is a fun piece to stitch and enjoy. Actually, I think you could cut out the cover of the leaflet and frame IT! (I'm not going to underestimate your creative talents here, but stitching it would be easy and what a statement you'd make...)

Using only black and gray - there are 11 white stitches in the necklace - which you could bead instead. Finishes 7 x 8 on 14/28ct, but choose any fabric you like and stitch away!

Hester's Special Delivery from Pansy Patch Quilts and Stitchery - click to see more Betsy's Summer Basket from Pansy Patch Quilts and Stitchery - click to see more Hester's Special Delivery and Betsy's Summer Basket
from Pansy Patch Quilts and Stitchery
Pansy Patch Quilts and Stitchery has two new designs that have caught our eye!
  • Betsy's Summer Basket is the first of a series of 4 charted Patchwork Baskets... this one is filled with a flourish of colorful summery stylized flowers. Stitched on 36ct Wren from Picture This Plus, it uses a medley of hand-dyed flosses or DMC and measures a generous 6 x 6-ish! Love the big-ball fringe trim on there! Future release dates: Autumn Basket in late August 2022, Winter Basket in Nov '22, and Spring Basket will finish the set and release in March of 2023. No information yet on other fabric colors ... or trims. We're offering an auto-ship for these 4 charts so you don't have to keep track of those dates... we'll automatically send the new as they are released!
  • Hester's Special Delivery - Lori writes, 'Who doesn't like a giant bunny delivering beautifully decorated eggs? Hester is making her way with her special delivery over a little house with a pretty shoofly decorated roof.' Pretty hand-dyed flosses throughout - the 'bushes' look like they are growing out of giant spools, and we love that scattered alphabet in the sky! Finishes approx 6 x 7 on 36ct.

Meow!... Our June 2022 Secret Needle Night Kit
Here's a little kitty to match the puppy we did a few months ago! We had so many paws-itive requests to make a friend for our doggy - so here she is! Super simple stitching - black wool thread and a little metallic ribbon - MEOW stitches in a jiff.

Mona painted more wooden paddles, cut more boards, and measured more ribbons and rik-rak to make finishing kits to coordinate!
Our Secret Needle Night kit contains the chart, 18ct linen fabric, threads and gold bead eyes. Mona's finishing kit is separate and optional, providing all materials to finish your kitty just like this one!

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!

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.

Each measures the same stitch count, the entire set is using a soft palette of reds, blues, golds, gunmetals and creme... they really are making a nice splash nestled together in a big tray!

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.

  • Love Letter is dedicated to all the different people - US - that Beth meets at her stitch events.

Move around the rings, stitch a different number of hands... her pin cushion measures 4 x 4-1/2 as it is on 40ct.
  • Charlotte Ash 1827 - Quite an old little sampler in Beth's collection, it was stitched using wools, silks and cottons. You see the bleeding from the black threads in her pic of the original. Pretty border, bold basket of flowers and seashells!
  • Baby Got Backstitch - The third in Beth's series based on lyrics of songs from the 80's and 90's. You get a whole lesson about it inside the chart... makes the whole thing really fun to study! She talks about changing colors of fabric and thread... and wouldn't that repeating pattern that surrounds the middle be cute just as a small pin cushion?
NOTE: Beth is scheduled to come teach at Silver Needle April 21 and 22 of 2023! (remember 21,22,23) We're taking reservations now... no class details yet, but it'll be a small class in our She Shed - limited to 40! I don't even have it on the Events Page yet... so call us! Early-bird notice!

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!

A Few New Offerings from Kathy Barrick
  • The Moons of 2022 - This is a NEAT design! Ms. Kathy has listed the names for each month's moon in her verse, and surrounded them by a glorious border of night sky and early morning woods! Because we are already into 2022, and have already seen some of these moons, she has listed the 2023 moons inside the pattern (so you have no excuse not to stitch this) and then PROMISES that she'll do monthly moon names for 'as long as anyone needs them!'
    The moon names are selected by the Olde Farmer's Almanac, and Kathy has included a chart of a more condensed version of this - omitting those moon names - giving you just the sky and hills. Worked on 40ct linen, this finishes about 10 x 16... love the stylized trees and the rolling hills and that dramatic sky.
  • Spring Pin Drum - Isn't this little guy cute? A Bunny, butterfly, willow tree and the urn - which is half-stitched on each end! There is a picture on the cover showing that complete urn when you finally finish your drum! Stitched on 36ct, this finishes about 4-1/2 inches tall. Along with the chart, Kathy has finishing instructions included for that cool velvet strawberry garnishing the top!
  • A Parliament of Owls - None of them look scary - they're all pretty cute! Part of The Collective Noun Set of charts by Liz Matthews and Kathy - just for fun - because they can!
  • The Lion & The Lamb -- Coded for DMC or silks.. the Fox & Rabbit Ancient Ruin linen is a MUST for this striking piece! I love that gorgeous red flower in the center of this 7 x 12 piece.

7 New Needlecase and Beaded Fob Sets
from Fern Ridge Collections
The Fern Ridge ladies have been busy! We have 7 new needlecase and beaded fob sets to show you. The beaded scissor fobs are all flat Peyote beading - which you do in your hands - not on a loom. They look super hard, and really aren't at all. The most challenging part is keeping control of your threads and not tangling them between the 'frizzies' of the fringe! We have a ton of models in the shop for all of Pat and Peggy's things, so next time you're in... we need to give you 'a tour!' All of their kits come complete with all the threads, beads and extra stuff you need! They have actual photographs inside of stitch layouts and clear stitch diagrams and good color pictures to help you with your finishing.
  • Carrot Patch - The Needle/Sewing Case of this set is done on white linen, and is lined with bright orange. Stitched with silks, it finishes about 2 x w when closed, and comes with that cute bunny-shaped wooden thread board. One of my pics shows the kit ingredients - the beads and charms are just stunning! The Carrot Patch fob has the same cheerful bright greens and oranges, and more rabbit and carrot charms... this one has a few less rows of Peyote than some others... TOPS, it'll take 3 to 4 hours from start to finish.
  • Magnificent Magnolia Set - This little fob is really elegant! The green, cream and white are highlighted by the golden yellow. They've put white opalescent flower beads into the fringe. The matching stitched case is about 3 x 4... the original picture shows a rectangular shell button but the kits have been released with the most gorgeous creamy mother-of-pearl fillagree drops instead... two of them. Background on this case is natural linen.

  • Night Owl - The browns, greens and golds in this set are stunning. The case kit comes with a feather waxer, a wooden owl ruler lots of butter-scotchy beads, and luscious hand-dyed green silk ribbon - which is there to hold scissors.The case is lined with green calico fabric, pockets for those wood tools and waxer... lots of special stitches, and an awesome beaded edge to the case.
  • Silken Threads - No sewing case this time around - but a Pin Ball! The little tiny spider fob is actually a good beginning piece to do - it's about half the size of all the other fobs they do. The fringe is controllable ad colors are pretty. I can't tell you the spider charm is 'cute' because it looks real! The kitted matching pin ball is 1-1/2 inches in diameter. You are simply doing a thin band of Peyote - like the little Santa Claus bracelet they have - and then wrapping it around the ball! They've even attached the little bead/ball feet on there for you, so it won't roll away! Another 'real' spider charm on this one too!

Neighborhood Dog Show from Little House Needleworks - click to see more Neighborhood Dog Show
from Little House Needleworks
What a cute row of all shapes and sizes and colors of dogs! All we need is a squirrel! Originally published by Diane in 2014 as a fundraiser for a local pet shelter, here it is again for everyone.

Coded for DMC, you could change some dog colors if you need to, add hand-dyeds or even use Gentle Art's Simply Wools. Just Another Button Company has dog bone and flower buttons... and Puntini has tiny squirrel and acorn buttons. A super-cute pattern... what about fun names on there too?

Forest Friends Pincushion from Under the Garden Moon
Forest Friends Pincushion from Under the Garden Moon - click to see more This designer is good friends with the Thread Milk people, so we are storing this design on that page for now.
This is enchanting. It's a 6 x 6 x 2 hand-appliqued felt pin cushion decorated with charming animals, vines, and little spotted mushrooms! NOT cross stitch at all... this is for all of you that love cutting bitty pieces of wools and felts, and then adding bits of Crewel embroidery to embellish.

The pattern has actual sized templates for cutting and arranging. We bought her little material packet, so EVERYTHING is included in here. 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. I'm a sucker for this kind of thing... I think it's Over the Moon - even though it's by Under the Garden Moon!

Half the Fun from Ink Circles - click to see more New Doors from Ink Circles - click to see more New Doors and Half the Fun... A couple of new designs from Ink Circles
  • Old Keys Won't Open New Doors - Ok, personally, I think old keys are charming - especially the ones Tracy has charted here, but I get the message behind this anyway! 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.
  • Half the Fun - Is getting there! This is cool. It's a medley of all the different modes you can use to travel! Most recognizable are the hot air balloons in the center - but look closer! You'll find airplanes, cars, rockets, a cable car, helicopter, donkey rickshaw, skateboard, uni-cycle, a fernacular, (I can't spell that, but it's a cable car that runs on a track up and down steep hills - we've been on the one in Budapest!), trains, ships, buses, sailboats, bicycles and a motorcycle. Wow, so much fun to remember your travels! I've been on a donkey in Santorini, in a rickshaw in Bejing... if you love to travel or know someone who does... this makes a perfect memory! Choose any fabric you like, this is done with one color of hand-dyed thread. Tracy says there are only 6173 stitches in here!

Across the Seasons with Autumn Lane Stitchery
  • Love Birds is for Valentines - and that's appropriate in every season! Pick a gorgeous red hand-dyed fabric, this is stitched using only white DMC. So pretty, it finishes almost 7 inches in size on 32ct.
  • Current Mood is cute. Stitched on any purple hand-dyed you like, this might be fun finished into a 4-sided standing cube! About 3-1/2 x 9 on 32ct... that cat just fits right in!
  • Lost Souls Cemetery - Another of Autumn Lane's signature spooky Halloween scenes, choose a pretty blue hand-dyed for this - just make sure your white ghosts will show up on it. No metallics called for, but wow - it'd be great in those golden eyes! Anyway, this finishes 10 x 14 on 14/28ct fabric and is stitched with black, white and 336, 823 and 825 blues. That whole light sky is the fabric! Doesn't it look like the bats are hanging clothes to dry up there on the branches?
  • Santa Claus is Coming To Town - a cool, retro-looking jolly old soul, Autumn Lane suggests any dark-ish blue fabric to represent the night sky. You could even add some wool threads to Santa or opalescent to the snow. Santa measures 7 inches when he's done on a 14/28 fabric, and right now, you have plenty of time to get this done before next Christmas!

Holly Jolly Buffalo from Open Road Abode - click to see more Winter Littles from Waxing Moon - click to see more Dreaming of Miss Claus from Barbara Ana - click to see more Christmas Claws from Salty Stitcher - click to see more
Christmas Designs in April!
It's never too early to think about Christmas Stitching... and I didn't want these three to swept underneath the carpet during Spring Cleaning... so here they are!
  • Holly Jolly Buffalo - by Open Road Abode. This was Melody's annual ornament in the Just Cross Stitch Ornament Issue last year. He's perfect for anyone who loves 'where the buffalo roam!' Stitched on white 14/28 (or anything else you like better), he finishes 3-1/2 inches. Presented as a single small card chart - the cover picture is nice enough to cut out and hang on the tree! (But stitch him instead!)
  • Winter Littles by Waxing Moon - This is a set of six small animals playing in the cold weather. Penguin skating, owl bundled against the wind, bird on a carrot nose, a fox that looks like a granny, a skiing lamb and finally a brown bear taking a break from shoveling. They all finish about 3-1/2 inches on 14/28.
  • Dreaming of Miss Claus - Another charming Dream-Girl by Barbara Ana! The 7th one! Miss Claus has gingerbread earrings, and on her white-as-snow billowing hair are mountains of chocolate and a peaceful, sleepy village. The stars are done with metallic gold. Her hair is worked with 3743 and 3865. Both colors look white, but contrast each other - they make that gorgeous geometric pattern in her hair. It looks so 3-dimensional. The chart is huge, and printed in full color... very easy to see and follow, and Miss Claus finishes a mere 4-1/2 x 6-1/2 on 32ct!
  • Christmas Claws by Salty Stitcher - Designer Kristi says: *Christmas Island's mass red crab migration is one of the mist incredible natural processes on Earth. Every year, millions of crabs merge from the forest on Christmas Island off the coast of Australia and Indonesia and make their way to the ocean to breed, swarming across roads, streams, rocks and beaches. The migration actually starts with the first rainfall of the wet season, usually in October or November.* What a fun thing to stitch! Measuring 100 x 100, it'll finish 5-1/2 inches on 18/36ct. Charted for 11 colors of DMC or Sulky thread - you can use some hand-dyeds in your water if you want to... and they suggest petite seed beads for all those crab eyes - if you aren't into French Knots!

Cardboard Milk Bottle Caps for Threads from Thread Milk Design Company
These are sets of 1-5/8 inch cardboards that feature antique-inspired artwork from old milk bottle caps. Each is drilled with two holes - one to attach to a ring, the other to tie your threads onto. (Picture those paper coasters they give you in English Pubs, and the beer coasters you get in bars - these are the same material.)

Something fun and colorful to dress your threads, they are super-cool tucked into sewing cases or decorating the zipper pull on a sewing pouch. They'd also be neat tucked between your stitched cushions in an old bowl, like the props used in The Bowl Series! Two different sets at the moment - The Ring set has 10 caps plus the charms and logo tag. The other set is simply 50 loose milk cap cards.

New 2022 Premax Scissor Offerings New Scissor Offerings from Premax of Italy!
  • 3-1/2 Inch Black Ringlocks - Same lovely brushed finish as our stainless these are super sharp and offer larger finger holes than lots of other styles.
  • Red Silicone Serrated or Regular Embroidery - Just a nice, classic embroidery scissor - these feature a pretty translucent red silicone coating on the handles for a little softness. They are offered in a serrated style or regular. The serrated has minute little 'bumps' in the metal (think of a bread knife or hack-saw) - they feel different when you cut with them... the serrations 'grab' your threads a little - to keep them from sliding down the blades when you close the scissors to cut.
  • Red & Blue Tartan Plaid - 3-1/2 Inch classic style, the handles are decorated with an enameled plaid design - either a deep red or dusty blue!

Ann Gott 1848 Sampler Cleaning Cloth - click for more
Sampler Eyeglass Cleaning Cloth
*A present for you my dear...* is the verse on the antique sampler whose image decorates this 5 x 6 microfiber lens cleaning cloth. Super handy to keep in your stitching bag... these are great to dust off your glasses or your magnifying lens.

We're calling this design Ann Gott 1848, as that is the signature on the sampler down at the bottom. Just a pretty thing for a stitcher to have!

A Tisket, Freedom, Crosshaven Sampler, Griffins of the Kingdom from Rosewood Manor!
Karen Kluba's imagination at work! All presented in leaflet format with lots of take-out bonus ideas...
  • A Tisket, A Tasket - A lovely blue and gray basket of flowers, this is stitched on Picture This Plus's Vellum hand-dyed fabric using Weeks Dye Works hand-dyed cottons. Grits, King Mackeral, Galvanized, Tin Roof, Porpoise, Fathom, Deep Sea, Blue Jeans and Jay Bird... the colors are so neat all together for this piece! 280 x 190... final size depends on fabric count - but on 36, it'll be a little over 15 x 10. You need mulitple skeins of each of the threads... but what a striking piece! But as always, Karen gives you lots of little take-outs from the larger design - pin cushions, needle cases - lots of stuff!
  • FREEDOM - When she designed this... she kind of had USA in mind, but then after the current world events... realized that Freedom is a goal everywhere... and not necessarily limited to red, white and blue! The main piece measures 181 in stitch count - so 10 x 10 on 18/36ct. She did use Weeks Merlot, Linen, and Fathom... the model is on Murky by Picture this Plus... but that can change too!
  • Crosshaven Sampler - This is a bright, sunny, summertime sampler. Several panels can be stitched individually, but all the yellows and greens are pretty together. Charted for DMC, it's generous in size - 189 x 317.
  • Griffins of the Kingdom - This companions Crown, Crosses and Keys of the Kingdom... stitched mostly in one color - with metallic accents. Karen has some Griffin trivia in here... one of which says that Griffins are hailed as the king of al creatures.. and they are the right personality for their title: noble, fearsome and above else protective. Stitch count on this is 184 x 187 - so 10 x 10 on 36ct. Lots of black on this and two different Petite Treasure Braids - the red and gold metallics!

When I Think of Gardening, Traveling and Stitching from PuntiniPuntini
Oh gosh, more of Paola's charming word designs! Each is her original design that doesn't REQUIRE any of her darling buttons or pins... but you're crazy if you do not take advantage and embellish with her many options!
  • When I Think of Gardening - Charted for DMC, on 36ct this finishes a teeny 3 x 7. The chart doesn't come with any buttons or pins but Paola has featured her new mini-set of garden pins on here - a watering can, radish and carrot - you can see them in he pic. She has several OTHER sets of buttons and pins that will work on this one too - just go browse in our area that shows what is available this season. DARLING miniature fruits, vegetables and flowers await you!
  • When I Think of Traveling - A suitcase, the Collesium, The Statue of Liberty, Big Ben, an Airplane, a camera - which is now almost an antique! - , and The Eiffel Tower. I can actually say I've been to all these places! No buttons with this one... I don't know why... but we'll work on her for something cute. We have metal charms, but that seems to break the rules since Paola is the QUEEN of gorgeous hand-made clay!
  • When I Think of Stitching - Super cute - EVERY Stitcher needs this little cushion! Stitched on (anything you want) 36ct with regular DMC, it measures just 3 x 6. The stitched floss, the sampler, the stack of fabric, the tomato cushion... it's all cute. The chart doesn't come with any of her buttons or pins, but you have a lot of options. Along with her yarn and sewing sets we already have, Paola has two small sets of pins for this one. Set one features a button, thimble and thread, while set two has the tomato instead of the button. You can't go wrong with either set!

  • Baby Boy or Girl WITH BINKY! from Just Another Button Company
    Just Another Button Company designed this darling chart which comes with either a blue binky button and BOY letters, or a pink binky button and GIRL letters. Cecile does remind you that she used her grandchildren's coloring for these, but if you search 'DMC floss skin tones' online, they give you lots of options for diversity with skin and hair colors! So.. your little person can look just right! Use flosses from your stash, but buttons are included with the chart. The designs finish about 4 inches in size, unless you personalize with a name too. Cute as can be... I have a two-year-old binky-lover... and that thing comes out for peanut butter and other equally special things!
  • Ear-Resistible Rabbit from JABCO and Val's - This is a fun little piece... but you don't stitch the whole thing! Little Rabbit is printed on 18ct perforated paper... you stitch the black and white border and the green leafy vine. Thats it. The rest are Just Another Company buttons and Val's pre-cut felt flower that you tack on! Zip-Zap - it's done! The packet includes the rabbit printed on the new Mill Hill 18ct perforated paper, chart, buttons and pre-cut felt pieces. A Needleprint & Play design - a collaboration between Val's Stuff and JABCO, super colorful, cute and quick!

Presented in a complete kit - A Market Limited Edition thing - you get the wooden tray, all the perf paper needed, all the felts, buttons, a bit of pipe cleaner, and a little spool to use as a spacer. You're stitching the greeting, bat and pumpkin, adding a few pairs of button eyes, and cutting out the cat, moons and leaves. Then, grab your glue gun and fire away... this is the cutest! The little tray will stand up like a shadow box and it looks really cool because the pumpkin 'sticks out' a little from the background decor.
  • Halloween Favorites Book II Limited - A set of 6 paper ornaments - all worked on 14ct perf paper. You'll need bits of floss from your stash, but all the stitching papers, the orange, purple, green and black backing felts, eye buttons, bead teeth, and little ghost and star buttons are included.

New Samplers from Shakespeare's Peddler
Shakespeare's Peddler has new Samplers! I do love her new covers she's done!
  • Two By Julia - A pair of samplers by two sisters... Theresa talks about how she found them and all the little quirky things in them that she loves! The one with the big house had the yard stitched entirely in Chain Stitch! (But you don't have to do that - thanks to Ms Theresa!) 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!

from Erica Michaels
Erica Michaels has several new things... lots of cute pin cushion ideas... and that fun patriotic crossword!
  • The Sewing Bee - This pair of designs was part of our Summer Event with Linda - via ZOOM - two years ago (already!) It companions Heartstrings Samplery's bee design as well. Presented as a chartpack with buttons and charm embellishment included, Linda has varied the two designs slightly from each other - so you can 'berry' or 'square' it!
  • Stitch All The Things - Just a reminder of how fortunate we are to have so much FUN STUFF to stitch! Linda has decorated this with antique buttons (you probably have some favorite buttons in your stash) and trimmed both pieces with Lady Dot's Vintage Ruler Twill Tape. The chart comes with some hand-dyed buttons by Just Another Button Company.
  • English Sampler Berries - More strawberry cushions - these feature bands taken from English samplers. All three designs are included in the chart... you can use any neutral linen... and mix and match the wool bits on the toppers when you finish them.
  • Liberty Games - This is a fun piece... a 7-1/2 x 11 patriotic crossword puzzle! Just like Reindeer Games, Linda has nestled words together and inter-mingled all sorts of tiny motifs in the quirky leftover spaces. She has included 2 smaller designs in here - one for a berry cushion and another is a drum stand-up. Stitched with a mixture of Weeks and DMC flosses, 36ct Vellum is the featured fabric in the model pic.
  • Chocolate or Coffee? Duh, BOTH! Kind of hard to tell in the picture, but there are 4 designs in this pack... two berries, 2 squares. They are all stitched with just Weeks Chestnut and Tatanka hand-dyed floss and trimmed with Weeks wool and Lady Dot trims.

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.

  • Liberty Needle Case - Long may our land be bright with Freedom's holy light. This is a fold-over design stitched on 32ct with hand-dyed cotton flosses. Again a tiny button embellishment, the design has the tiny village on one side and the verse on the other. You can always 'cushion' both sides if you want... but you do get that fun red flag fabric you see in the pic and the felt lining and star... just not the scissors! The Lady Dot hand-dyed rik rak is also special and included!
  • Liberty Ewe - The annual little EWE doing his thing... this little guy appears in Halloween, Spring, Winter and Christmas designs - he's always dressed in a different festive hat that is really a hand-made clay button!

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.
To My Friend Pinkeep Stack from Stacy Nash -- click to see more Strawberry Pinkeep and Scissor Fob from Stacy Nash -- click to see more Jane Lefurgy Thread Keep & Hoop Sewing Bag from Stacy Nash -- click to see more Merry Merry Pinkeep from Stacy Nash -- click to see more
Stacy Nash has several New Releases!
  • To My Friend Pinkeep Stack - Dedicated to Barb Adams - A set of 4 small pin cushion designs all in a neat stack. Worked on 36ct hand-dyed with weeks flosses, Stacy added a spool of thread and scissors on one and blackbirds and strawberries on another. I believe the scissor charm is included with the chart.
  • Strawberry Pinkeep and Scissor Fob - Another berry basket design, this one has a matching smaller fob - 40ct Havana Linen, more Weeks flosses. One of Stacy's strawberry waxers is featured in the photo - and is available separately. Again, the tiny scissor charm is included with the chart.
  • Jane Lefurgy Thread Keep & Hoop Sewing Bag - A little larger of a sewing case, it is a sampler reproduction Stacy has done, and rather than frame it, she's made it into a larger envelope to store something larger - like your hoops! On 40ct, the case finishes 7 x 9... can't wait to see this one stitched and finished.
  • Merry Merry Pinkeep - Oh a charming larger cushion - it measures almost 8 inches square! Decorated with a festive greenery border along the top, the grand house, prancing deer and finally the peaceful snowy evergreen scene along the bottom, it's stitched with regular DMC floss! 36 Patriot's Brew - Natural or some of the 'sampler colors' of hand-dyed linens will all work for this.

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?

We're excited to bring home our Treasures by Samplers Not Forgotten!
  • 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.

TONS of NEW from Teresa Kogut - I can't believe all that she came out with (I counted at least 30!) - and I have no idea how you can get it all stitched in a lifetime! However, I am here to remind you that Cross Stitchers don't have to stitch EVERYTHING in their stash... half the fun is appreciation of all the cool stuff out there!
Introduce me to a fix-it guy who has used all his screws or a golfer who has hit all his golf balls... or a photographer who has taken all the pictures he ever will... and we'll be even! Meanwhile ENJOY Teresa's talents! She has several books with multiple designs in each!

    Jury is still out on this one... but i think you get all 4 designs in the book!
  • Madonna & Child - A Work of Heart from Teresa Kogut
    This gorgeous design belongs with Teresa's Angels! SUPER DETAILED stitching in these... they are not easy to follow, but so worth the effort if you can do them! Solid stitching, color changes everywhere - choose any fabric you like!

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.

Spring Forest Scrapbook from Lindy Stitches and The Blue Flower
This is a collaboration design between Blue Flower Designs and Lindy Stitches. You might remember their Saltwater Scrapbook piece last year... this year's is bursting with the new spring animals in the forest. Presented in two charts (each is available separately, so you will need to order both to get all 9 panels) - Jeannine from Blue Flower has contributed the snail delivering spring blooms, racoons under their umbrellas, a lazy bear, and pair of sleeping foxes. Stephanie from LS did the deer, that awesome grasshopper tipping his hat to the ladybug, the birds, bees and butterflies, and finally those darling hedgehogs.

You can stitch each of these 3 x 3 (61 x 61) pieces individually, or join them together... depends on your finishing talents! Choose a pretty light blue fabric, a fat quarter will do all either framed or singly. All are stitched with various hand-dyeds and coded for DMC as well. I just love the different animals, and all the pretty colors - such a refreshing collection of charm!

Adorn Your Heart from Plum Street Samplers Thistle House from Plum Street Samplers My Garden House from Plum Street Samplers Corgi Caboodle from Plum Street Samplers God Bless America from Plum Street Samplers This is the Day from Plum Street Samplers
New Designs from Plum Street Samplers
Paulette has 6 new things... all chart format... here we go!
  • Adorn Your Heart - Paulette's favorite part of this one is the pink cow! 'Adorn your heart, adorn your mind with knowledge of the sweetest kind.' This finishes apporx 9 x 12 on 36ct.
  • Thistle House - Finishes 5 x 7... the repeating shapes of the thistles and leaves on here is really pleasing. Paulette says the color palette is of soft sage, gray, pink and white... hard to see in the pic.
  • My Garden House - An absolutely beautiful bouquet of flowers beside a crisp white house... this can be 'drummed' like in the pic, or framed. Stitched with Weeks and DMC, it measures about 10 x 3 - which is why it's perfect for that little drum shape!
  • Corgi Caboodle - Oh my gosh, the next little family stack... these all finish the same size and look great together. Pretty pink flowers and plump Corgi pups. Paulette says there might be more doggy sets coming!
  • God Bless America - This features a bald eagle in her nest perched atop a grand house. (There is a roof on there - just too light in the picture.) The house number is 1776 and there are 13 stars long-stitched under the roofline... and the colors are delicious. I love the festoon border! Finishes approx 9 x 10 on 36ct.
  • This is the Day - The Market Exclusive this year this features one of Paulette's favorite verses... but she says it'd be pretty even if you left off the words. There is a mountain goat leaping over that lavish potted plant potted plant. I guess he's rejoicing and being glad with his day - in his yard - at home! Finishes about 9 x 11 on 36ct... she's tucked some bright colors into that little sun - kind of thinking outside her design-box!
A Snowman's Christmas from Praiseworthy Stitches - click for more Holly Jolly Stacker from Praiseworthy Stitches - click for more
A Snowman's Christmas & Holly Jolly Stacker from Praiseworthy Stitches
Pam and Susan of Praiseworthy Stitches have debuted their two new Christmas designs for this upcoming year - their annual Christmas Village Scene and another Stacker piece - just like Creepy Pumpkin Stackers! Both are presented in chart format.
  • A Snowman's Christmas joins the super-charming set of bustling Christmas Town Square pieces - like Churchyard Christmas and Winter at Sugar Hill. Lots of quaint houses and bitty scenes with children and animals everywhere, this year we have a very festive snowman by the village ice rink. The evergreen trees this year are see-thru! Look how they charted them - lots of repeating lines. Lots of design texture there - really pretty. You can see through those thin branches, and it just makes everything more shivery cold and snowy!
    You'll need a fat quarter cut of Picture This Plus's hand-dyed linen... our shop models work on about 10 different shades they make... you just want that varigation in the background to simulate the cloudy, wintery sky. Touches of metallics here and there... this whole set of Christmas Scenes, Santa's Midnight Ride and Going To Grandma's are ALL cute!
  • Holly Jolly Stacker is a fun way to choose three different fabrics that you like that go together. Pam and Susan are painting antique wooden spools green - that is your 'tree trunk' - and have included them with the chart. I can't tell yet what the fabric colors are in this yet... but we improvised a lot with Creepy Pumpkins, so I imagine we'll have options here too. Just choose three fabrics that are the same count, and the same 'feel' - soft or stiff, and your stitched tree with be darling!

Our 2022 Nashville Market Cookbook - Happiness is Homemade
This is a fun little 6 x 9 softcover cookbook stuffed with 100-ish recipes from our industry designers, suppliers and shops, along with 30-ish small charts from the participating designers.

The Market people have compiled these for three years of shows now (but we didn't get one last year because we didn't have an in-person show). If you're a recipe collector (or actual user!) it's cool because recipes in here come from some of the European gals as well as all different areas of the US. (So, like the recipes from the Italy girls are really authentic Italian recipes!)

It's only $8 and a fun gift for your stitch group stitchers! We bring them home from the Show. Our first batch completely sold out, but more are coming!.
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!
Yes, there's even MORE!
