Strawberry Manor from Teresa Kogut -- click to see more Nature from Teresa Kogut -- click to see more Beauty Fades from Teresa Kogut -- click to see more Remember Me from Teresa Kogut -- click to see more
Teresa Kogut's Spring '23 Arrivals!
Seven new cross stitch pieces and 2 punch needle - they are so attractive!
  • Strawberry Manor - Finishing approx 12 x 8-1/2 on 36ct, this is worked on a lovely neutral with gold undertones to highlight all the reds, gunmetals and greens in it. Coded for DMC and Weeks.
  • Nature -- I just love this one! Finishing approx 14 x 11 on 36ct, it says Folkart and Whimsical right in the design! Regular DMC floss, pretty birds and lavish flowers.
  • Beauty Fades - This one is fun! I see four separate parts on this - it measures 7-1/2 x 16-1/2 on 36ct... so the top bands might need an inch or two on the ends if you make them into squatty pin drums, or you could duplicate one of the urns and alternate a few colors.
  • Remember Me - This one as the prettiest border surrounding such a happy house and yard! Love it! Finishes approx 13 x 14-1/2 on 36ct... Regular 'ol DMC can look really nice, can't it!?

2023 Patriotic Smalls, Amish country and Primitive Stockings with Mice from Twin Peak Primitives
The girls at Twin Peak Primitives have lots of different design looks... here are three!
  • 2023 Patriotic Smalls - 9 Different designs in this book, the cushions are charming! All coded for DMC floss, the motifs are cute - the lighthouse covered in stars and stripes, that tiny sailing ship scene, the eagle is cool, and the farmhouse barn with the quilt and sunflowers is pretty too. Everything is shown against a sky blue fabric background. The book itself is beautifully published. Heavy paper pages, each design is featured on it's own 2-page open spread. You get the clear chart over one page, and then a smaller colored chart, as well as the photograph of the finished cushion right there - while you're looking at the chart. It's very nicely presented and a nice value for what you are getting!
  • Amish Country - 'Contentment is not getting what we want, but being satisfied with what we have.' This is a lovely Amish-inspired piece - coded for DMC and stitched on Smokey blue fabric... it finishes approx 13-1/3 x 17 on 16/32ct. The leaflet shows the stitched model on the front, the chart across the book pages, and finally the entire inside back cover with a colored version of the chart. It is really a nice stitching aide. A pretty piece, there are lots of sections you could take out of this for smaller cushions, block stand-ups, fobs or sewing cases.
  • Primitive Stockings With Mice - These are darling! The stockings themselves are finished into kind of an angular shape, but I think you could fix that and make these into a more traditional stocking shape if you choose. Each little stocking is actually not so little - they measure 4 x 9 on 14ct. Coded for DMC, they each feature little mice residents that are the cutest! Real different, I think they'd be fun with real bells at the bottom, furry or wool thread for the mice, maybe metallics for the candy canes, and you COULD do some special stitches for texture on the striped and checkerboarded ones. These are worth the look - you get all 4 stockings in the single leaflet.

Sweet Wing Studio Measure Twice - click for more Bless this House from Artful Offerings - click for more Luhu Stitches New Every Morning - click for more Gathering Together Pinkeep from Scattered Seed Samplers - click for more
Several Super-Singles by Multiple Designers!
  • Measure Twice Cut Once from Sweet Wing Studio
    This needs to be mounted onto the front of a fabric stitching tote...but it'd make a cute pin cushion as well. Finishing only 3 x 5 on32ct... coded for DMC or Weeks hand-dyed flosses - every artist - of every kind appreciates these words of wisdom!
  • Bless this House from Artful Offerings
    The newest design from Artful offerings, this is inspired by Pennsylvania Dutch Barn-Sign art. Our proud little bird sports his precious crown while perched atop his favorite cherry tree branches. He's presenting and then guarding his house! He's only 6 x 7... stitched with Weeks flosses... very geometric and balanced!
  • New Every Morning from Luhu Stitches
    Isn't this glorious? This can be done on anything, but the model at Market was presented on 20ct linen - stitched with 3 strands of floss. It finishes a whopping 11 x 11! (HINT: Use 1 single strand of #5 Pearl cotton instead of messing with three strands of floss - you'll LOVE how fast this stitches up!) Bright and cheerful... it's just awesome!
  • Gathering Together Pinkeep from Scattered Seed Samplers
    Brown and blues... this is stitched with just 5 shades of DMC - 413, 611, 844, 3011 and 3032. It's so bold, yet simple, and finishes 4-1/2 x 8 on 36ct. I think all the curves and the flowing angles of the flowers make this delightful to look at... it's a pretty composition.
Noteworthy Needle Turn Turn - click for more Spaghetti Western Sampler by Ardith Designs - click for more Little Robin Designs High Flying Bunny - click for more Spring Village by Nikyscreations - click for more
More Super-Singles by Multiple Designers!
  • Turn Turn by Noteworthy Needle - I have absolutely no way to describe to you what this piece does other than the fact that it is a bunch of tiny triangular sides all stitched and finished in such a way that you can turn them inside out and around and your stitching changes to another season. It's all one piece! In looking through the chart, I have concluded that you have to be a rocket scientist to figure this out... or really, really good with visualization and geometrics and have a little patience! Janice had her stitched model at Market and it was enchanting to play with... just the coolest thing. So get this chart, and have fun figuring it out. It's on 32ct fabric and stitched with DMC and some Gentle Art hand-dyeds. The tree in here is stitched in three different seasons, REALLY cool, and you can see that the whole thing is pretty petite - because of the hands in the photograph. Talk about a conversation piece!
  • Spaghetti Western Sampler by Ardith Designs This is simply super cute! It's got a western theme... with pasta all over in it! Inspired by her mom, who loved the old spaghetti western movies and cooking spaghetti dinners on those Sunday nights, this piece is adorned with meatballs, all sorts of different pasta shapes, (wagon wheels and bow ties!) and of course, cowboys! There is a whole little story about it on the back of the chart. Stitched on a pale red fabric with DMC and/or Gentle Art hand-dyeds, it finishes approx 6 x 9 on 32ct. A REALLY COOL kitchen conversation piece... 'Yee Haw for Good food and Social Justice!'
  • High Flying Bunny from Little Robin Designs Isn't this vintage and charming? That gorgeous carriage. (Is this a high-boy or something? I know it has historical value.. but I don't know about it.) I think it's a good follow up to the Spaghetti Western Sampler! It's the rabbit rushing to church on Sunday morning to pray after the gun-shoot last night! Or... maybe he's rushing to the Easter Egg Hunt! I don't know, I just like the whole look of this! It measures a huge 10 x 15 on 32ct... and is stitched with DMC or both Gentle Art and Weeks.
  • Spring Village by Nikyscreations - This is absolutely enchanting! Soft colors make up this sweet springtime village scene - complete with beautiful flower border beneath, geometric stylized trees - full of great stitch patterns - and little grazing sheep over the rolling hills. Presented as the chart, I did get a few cuts of Niky's hand-dyed linen for this - it's a soft sand color with a hint of pink to it rather than yellow. The pic is pretty hard to see, but trust me, this is CUTE and worth the stitch! The chart is awful, too small and light, probably one of the worst I've ever seen... NOT good - so maybe you'll want to e-mail to Niky for a better one... just so you know! Get a good magnifier!

Meowmas from Stitchy Prose - click to see more Meowster Mash from Stitchy Prose - click to see more
Meowster Mash and Merry Meowmas! For you Cat Lovers!
from Stitchy Prose
A Pair of Cute Biscornu Designs by Stitchy Prose... Work these on any fabric you like - they measure 60 x 60 in stitch count - so will finish about 4 inches on 14ct. Coded for DMC, they feature little kitties all dressed up for the seasons, and they are CUTE!
  • Meowster Mash has a Ghost cat, a Frankenstein cat, and one wearing a cape.
  • Meowmas is even cuter... it has a snowman cat, a reindeer cat, and even a Santa Cat! Real different, each is presented in chart format.

Crowns & Shields, a Collection of Cartouches
from Blackbird Designs
From Alma: "All of these projects were influenced by one of my favorite antique samplers. I purchased it about 8 years ago. It is 43" by 9 1/2," and quite the drama queen! These patterns are an adaptation of the antique piece.

"The drum pincushion, Kindred Spirits, pictured on the top left was a class piece from 2017. The bottom pillowcase and the top right sampler are made from the same design. The use of color makes them both look so different!" 8 projects in total.
Rockets Red Glare Trim Packet from Lady Dot Neutrals Finishing Packet from Lady Dot Prim Finishing Packet from Lady Dot Ruler Twill Tape Trims from Lady Dot
Trims and Finishing Packets
Lady Dot had some fun little treats in her room at market this year!
  • Rockets Red Glare - This season's finishing packet with pin-cushioned-sized lengths of ribbons and trims for small projects. Lois has a few charms in here as well. The ideal is to provide bits of trims and those charms so you can finish two or three things. You do not have to go shopping for decorations, and way-over-spend buying yards and yards of trims and stuff that you'll never use again. It's a great idea, and looks very festive!
  • Neutrals and Prim - This season's finishing packets - these include velveteens and trims - enough for three small cushions - so you can finish yours into a matching set. Again, the idea is to save time and chasing to find 'good ingredients' for your finishing. Lois does a great job of getting you cute bits and pieces that you'd never find if you tried! Everything goes together for lovely mix and matching.
  • Ruler Twill Tape Trims - What a fun set of ruler tapes! By Lady Dot, here are three colorways of printed cotton twill tape - printed with accurate measurements! Perfect trims to garnish pin cushions and sewing pouches, choose the color that looks best on your fabrics. We have black with white printing, Vintage hand-dyed that looks coffee stained and old, and School Bus vintage yellow - it even has metric on it! All 1/2 an inch wide, just full of personality to make your finish fabulous!

4 Tiny Pin Sets from PuntiniPuntini
Paola hand-makes all her own clay buttons and pins. Such pretty shading is created by layers and layers of slightly different colored polymer clay that she stacks together and shapes to create her clay 'canes.' Each little 'thing' is a cross-slice of that cane... delightful to watch the process.

Anyway, her things are charming, and while they do not have specific designs to go with them, they are delightful and can poke into anything just on their own! Sets of 3 pins, we have baby squirrels, ladybugs, a spring medley and seashells with a sailboat. I bet you can think of numerous different cushion designs for these.

Prairie Necessaire Sewing Case and Scissor Fob from Fern Ridge Collections

The complete kit contains all the linens, fabrics, threads embellishments - everything to make this 4 x 6 case.

The Beaded fob is totally fun by itself - in case you want no case! Blue sky and the wheat growing in the Plains. you can see the wheat charm tucked in between the fronds of the grassy green fringe. Soft bead colors - everything matches between the case and fob. Case will take about 12 hours to complete - the fob - about 3-1/2!

American Pie, Peaceful Pondering and Feeling Crabby?
from Meridian Designs
Meridian Designs has three cute new things...
  • American Pie is a cheerful 3 x 5 pin cushion design stitched on really any 14-16 or 28-32 fabric background you like. Along with the chart, she has included BOTH cuts of the red and blue finishing fabric you see in the pic as well as the white baby balls and blue rik rak trim! Really a cute finish, the pillow back is the red fabric - so your will look just like the cover pic. Coded for DMC - choose from your stash on that.
  • Peaceful Pondering and Feeling Crabby? I guess two very different moods! Serene dragonflies, or edgy, prickly crabs! These are each offered in their separate charts and I liked them both. Coded for DMC, they are stitched on fun colors of fabrics and garnished with a few Mill Hill beads. (Some opalescent Treasure Braid would be awesome in those dragonflies!) Just 60 x 60 each, colorful and happy.

Liberty Lobstah and Hedge Hugs
from The Elegant Thread
We hit Summertime and Valentines with these two offerings by The Elegant Thread!
  • Liberty Lobstah is just a fun little creepy crustacian! Stitched on a creme background, with 5 shades of Weeks Dye Works hand-dyed flosses, it'll finish 5 x 7 - with the words, or 3 x 5 without. Just a silly and cute little thing, the chart includes three silvertoned patriotic charms. Elegant Thread's Lobstah Dinner Ornament kit is still available as well - cute just like this one!
  • Hedge Hugs - Isn't this cute? Your baby hedgehog is bringing your love! Coded for Sulky thread - just follow the color pic on the chart cover to choose DMC, this finishes just 4 x 5 on 16/32ct. I'd choose a pretty brown Simply Wool for the hedgehog fur and a little black metallic for his eyes and nose!

The Halloween set features logos of four dairies and 6 caps with vintage Halloween artwork on them. Actually kind of an 'extra fussy' thing... these ARE cute, and really fun to have!

  • Make a Wish - This is a tiny Birthday Cake scissor fob! Stitched on 32ct white with DMC, it's garnished with a tiny silver flower charm. Sharon says she stitches these for all her Stitching Friends on their birthdays. Her complete kit contains the chart, needle, charm threads, pink mini-rik-rak and the most delicious fray striped raw silk backing fabric. All you add is stuffing and love! Little Fob finishes 2 x 2.
  • Mend and Make Do - Stitched with only 2 colors, you embellish with cut bits of included wool, pins, a snap, and a couple of buttons. Super cute as a pin cushion, this finishes approx 3 x 4.

  • Heart to Heart - This one is a ready-made 4-1/2 x 5 zipper pouch that you are embellishing with your needlework. Sharon planned the color of the linen to match the color of the pouch - your threads are butterscotch, teal and fuscia... and the bit of stitching is trimmed and attached to the outside of the pouch with the included lace and shell buttons.
  • Willow's Bag - Another handy little fabric zipper pouch, this one measures 5 x 9, and is garnished with your stitching. Rose and mossy green, this border design will feature your name in the center (don't stitch Willow's in there!) and then trimmed with green cording and vintage rik rak. This would make a really really nice gift for a stitcher, because you can make it, and it's FINISHED for both you and your receiver! Complete contains all you need - chart, linen, nedle, threads, embellishments - everything!

What's Cracking, Easter Bunny and Egg Hunt from Shannon Christine and Erin Elizabeth Designs
Shannon Christine and Erin Elizabeth Designs have three colorful new designs to celebrate Spring and Easter! Presented in three separate charts... each is coded for good 'ol regular DMC - and don't they look great?

Choose some pretty pastel fabrics to work these on. (I'm always a fan of adding a little metallic sparkle or beads to patterns like these - Rainbow Gallery has Petite Treasure Braid - metallic - thin as floss, it comes in 90+ colors. RG's Wisper is another furry option - very thin, perfect for 14 aida or 32ct linen stitching.)
What's Cracking measures 75 x 87 - so a mere 4-1/2 x 5-1/2 on 32ct.
Easter Bunny measures 126 x 91 - so 8 x 5-1/2-ish on 32ct.
Egg Hunt measures 63 x 63 - just 4 x 4 on 32ct.

Coded for hand-dyeds or DMC, some metallics, beads and buttons would be fun additions on here.

All are offered as charts and travel here from The Netherlands!
  • Counting on the Farm - is darling! One farmhouse, 2 horses, 3 tractors, 4 pigs... cows, sheep, goats and chickens round out the yard... all surrounded by a border of drying corn cobs! Can't tell the finished size yet, but Lizbeth does use hand-dyed flosses, so i imagine this is full of great colors. Simply Wools by The Gentle Art would be fun to add to some of the animals!
  • Make it Bloom - A cheerful little log cabin with a blooming yard of colorful flowers! Love it all - charted for DMC.
  • Autumn and Halloween Pumpkins - A unique-ly shaped pin cushion finishing treatment...might be fun to tuck these into a bowl of traditionally-shaped cushions and see if they are discovered! Worked with gentle Art Sampler Threads.
  • Christmas Friends - A row of holiday personality... can't tell much about size on this one, but it is worked with Sampler Threads.
  • My Stitching Project Bag from Thistles My Stitching Project Bag - This is a fun design - a nine-patch of sewing and stitching motifs. Each area is only 3 x 3 - so each would make a cute pin cushion to nestle together in a basket or box. They are stitched with DMC or Gentle Art Sampler Threads.
    Lizbeth finished this with a backside of clear vinyl to make a stitching pouch (shown as the right-hand model). She has finishing instructions in here, but maybe my pictures of the model will help you with visuals. Pretty cute!

Stitch count for each is a mere 17 x 31 - so you know they work up in a jiff. We have a baker's Dozen on those sleds, and all 12 designs are included in this pack.
  • Bloomin' Bunnies Trio - All three charts are included in this pack.. and actually I think that BLOOM would be cute stitched and mounted to the backs of lots of pin cushions! Bunny is cute, she'd look good stitched with a little Gentle Art Simply Wool!
  • Channing Street Sampler - An original piece, this is dedicated to Annie's late husband who she lost in 2021. The story inside the chart makes you cry... they lived on Channing Street for 30 years, raised their family there - complete with all those dogs, cats and chickens running around in the yard.

Cheryl Granda has some fun new designs that are bright and colorful...
  • Dia De Los Muertos celebrates the Mexican holiday which is a celebration of life and respect for deceased family members. (I didn't really get it till I saw Coco - the Disney movie!) Something fun, if it's special to you, this measures a whopping 12 x 18, so get a fat quarter of the chalkboard gray color it is worked on. Coded for silks or DMC, there are lots of Mill Hill beads on here as well.
  • Hungarian Folk Art #4 - a lovely basket of colorful eggs amidst such a flurry of greenery and the wavy basket. Just pretty, festive and very eye-catching! Coded for DMC, Cheryl has chosen an opalescent white background, and has embellished the stitching with Mill Hill beads. This measures approx 12 x 12 on 14/28ct.
  • Phantom Plantation - Glendon Place has a spooky Halloween piece of a place I never want to visit! Phantom Plantation measures about 12 x 19 on 28ct... would be a little smaller on smaller count fabric. Worked with 63 different shades of DMC floss, there is actually no metallic in here - but I bet you could find fun places to add it! Everything is creepy in here... the moss on the trees, the monsters crawling out of the pond, the horse, the snake in the tree, and the eyes hidden inside the hollow tree... it's really kind of a fun piece! I don't think this is new - copyright date says 2019 - but she had it on display at Market, and we had to have some copies! So... if you're in an 'edgy mood', get this - it'll make you HAPPY!

(You might remember we had a few very limited edition kits of that Summer Stitcher inside a little brown wooden box - Gone! But that box is an unfinished wooden card box from Hobby Lobby - so there's your second chance.) Anyway, both of these designs have a stitching 'flavor' in them...

Finishing instructions are included for the cases.

  • Cottontail Farms - This would make a cute Springtime decoration - it reminds me of a flour sack or dish towel. It measures 159 x 94 - so 10 high by 6 wide - soft colors with another antique retro feel.
  • Enchanted Quaker - This would be fun stitched all in black hand-dyed - but with added metallcs or beads for a little glisten. Measuring 124 x 254 - 7 x 14 on 18/36 ct... it's actually pretty cute as far as halloween Quaker Samplers go - more going on than just roundels. (In reading this description, this will take EIGHT skeins of Black Coffee Classic hand-dyed floss to complete on 32ct! That is a lot of thread!!) Would be fun all divided up into cushions too!

The two band samplers and that lush pot of roses... everything is worked with Weeks hand-dyed flosses and measures a petite 9 x 10! It just looks larger than that to me, it was exquisite in person at the Needlework Market! It looks advanced to stitch, but probably isn't too bad, because the rows are close together and short! Shop model coming of this one!
  • One Nation - What a delightful little set of needlebook, cushion and fob smalls. Grab some pretty wool for lining and finishing, everything is done with Weeks hand-dyed flosses on 36ct.

New from Romy's Creations
  • The Seasons in Snowballs: Four little pics all nestled in snowglobe shapes... we think summer is really in a a seashell! Each of the 4 of these is stitched on any hand-dyed light blue fabric you like best... they measure 98 x 77, so will be 5-1/2 x 7 on 14/28ct. I didn't opt for the Romy hand-dyed thread packs... but I think some of the colors might be easy to match to your stash colors. Delightful scenes, each is offered in a separate chart. Please note: the 4 snowglobes really ARE the same dimensions; the pics we have are a bit distorted.
  • Christmas and Halloween Trains - A pair of fun little train cars... each chart has it's three train cars in the pack. Basically finished like pincushions, you could make these into solid little blocks as well - joining them with thread and adding the button wheels. Christmas features Santa as the engineer with Frosty in the caboose... their little train is full of presents. Wouldn't it be cute to make these boxes - with open tops? You could add a 'gift-car' for everyone in the family - stitch their names on each of the cars. Then attach the train, stick it on the kitchen table, and fill each persons little car with something special? Could even do it everyday in December! Halloween could be the same way - The Trick or Treat Train! Make eveybody in the family a car... I love that ghost driving it... and the silly skeleton too!
