from Threadwork Primitives
That same blackbird checking his plentiful horn-of-clovers.
Finishes 5 x 7 on 32ct Picture This Plus' Legacy - Onyx, Garrison green, Pecan, Moss and Olive.
Carrots for Sale
from Madame Chantilly
Here's a sweet piece from Madame Chantilly - a bunny family selling their crop of carrots. Each of the components are cute, just the carrot cart by itself, but especially that little sitting rabbit... they'd make a cute pair of cushions nestled in next year's Easter Egg Basket!
Regular DMC, stitched on any white fabric, it's a generous 167 x 91 in stitch count.
from Hands to Work
'They that sow kindness gather love.' This is a charming row of houses featuring that great verse - finish it flat in a frame, or roll it like this charming drum!
Worked on Picture This Plus Ale linen, it uses Classic and Gentle Art hand-dyed flosses. The chart is beautifully printed inside. (One of the shop gals, who had a self-imposed-buying-restriction this week, caved, and opened this one up before she bought it. The chart is HUGE, and the center lines are printed in red. A quick and easy stitch!

New Halloween Arrivals from Shepherd's Bush
Warm & Wooly Welcomes from AB Designs
We are in the middle of a set of 12 'Warm & Wooly' monthly sheep by AB Designs. Pictured here are #5 and #6. Very creatively named, these two celebrate October and November. You can see the whole collection when you click on the pic here. Count back 4 months, and you can see we started with July with the color key and the design words.
Now the tricky part. We are sending two charts every two months... they began with July, so will end with May and June next March! And if you can keep that straight... your brain is as sharp as your needle! The color key for the whole set is in the first design... so you can't really get just pieces and parts of this... you have to get all 12 sheep.
To make a long story short... if you like them, we'll send you the six that exist so far, the color key, (we'll catch you up thus far) and automatically send you the rest of the set as they release into next year. Easy-breezy... join the auto-ship, and you don't have to remember another thing, we'll take care of it! Coded for DMC, each little sheepy is about 3 x 3, whole piece is 10 x 13-ish.
Bayliwick from Rosewood Manor
Rosewood Manor has a charming new sampler that feels like two different pieces! The left-hand side is full of (technically) Blackwork - but it's stitched in colors! 90 x 150 - it measures about 6 x 9 on 32ct, and is full of specialty stitches of Eyelets, Algerians, Smyrnas and Satins. Little bands that would be stunning around the edges of some 'mattress pin cushions!'
The other side - 140 x 150 will finish about 9 x 9 - what a perfect size for all this glorious stitching! Karen has loaded this full of charming motifs, and then given you tons of suggestions inside the leaflet for things to do with them singly. The entire thing is coded for 21 shades of DMC, but then she opens a totally fun can of worms by suggesting you change those to hand-dyeds! Really just very pretty however you choose to stitch it!
The Fairy Garden Houses from Shannon Christine
This is an enchanting set of 8 different miniature fairy houses - I don't know which one is the cutest! Stitched on any aqua colored fabric, they are coded for DMC floss and measure about 55 stitches in size - so about 3-1/2 inches on 32ct. Can't you just imagine WHO lives in each one of them?
Presented in 8 individual charts; we DO have some sets bundled together WITH the border chart and center panel included in that packet. (Border charts are not offered with the individual charts.) The center reads 'Fairies Welcome.' Just the sweetest pic... they would all be cute as individual pillows on a fairy-lovers bed... or stitched together on her bedroom wall!
Float your mouse over the individual images above to see their names.
Charity & Humility - The final 2 Fragments in Time for 2020
from Summer House Stitche Workes
What a delightful set of bowl fillers! Charity & Humility finish out this set that can be stitched all together (complimentary border chart on Summer House's site) or individually in cushions. Stitched on 32ct Flax Linen.
Threads needed for all are: Weeks Dye Works Lichen (3), Hunter (3), Flatfish (2), Blue Jeans (3), Gunmetal (4), and 3 skeins of Classic Colorworks Barn Door. One pack of the chenille will trim all pillows, and all are backed with Weeks hand-dyed wool of Red Pear.
Princess Elliana from Mirabilia
Something fun has arrived from Mirabilia - Princess Elliana - a most colorful creature! One of Elliana's claims-to-fame is that she uses all the 35 newest colors of DMC floss that were released a few years ago in the gold collector's tin. Colors 1 through 35... do you have them? (She actually calls for a total of 63 DMC colors.) Well, this delightful creature is stitched on the prettiest shade of Peaceful Purple - either 32ct linen, or 16ct aida.
The patterns in her dress are inspired by the delicate floral patterns on the china tea sets at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel in New York City! She measures 20 x 11, and is garnished with 10 different shades of Mill Hill glass beads along with pink and peach crystal Treasures. All that classic Mirabilia coloring and shading... I look at the chart and my eyes glaze over... then there are some of you that can stitch these in the car! We have the charts available, both fabric options and the embellishment packet at well.
from Long Dog Samplers
Well, I'd say so! Long Dog has a new piece entitled Pandemic! Something to 'calm your stitching nerves' during the pandemic? Whip up this intricate beauty while you're staying home to stitch! Stitch count is 365 x 429 - so it'll finish approx 20 x 24 on 36ct.
Jools talks about the nature and symptoms of a Cross Stitch Pandemic - the pathways to transmission and symptoms to watch out for. She gives the stitcher instruction on how to deal with the Stitching Disease - the entire back page of the chart is just a delight to read! Meanwhile, grab your favorite fabric and choose some threads... and try to ride it out working on this design! Presented as a chart.

Cute 'Postcards' from your Travels! from Open Road Abode Needleworks
Open Road Abode's cute little campers go all over the USA! What a fun reminder of the travels that lay ahead of us! This is a fun little collection of campers - all of them finish about 4 x 6 in size. Stitch them in one color - or go through your stash and find some colors you like. They are meant to be cute and quick. Fun to frame with trip pictures, or hang 'em in your camper!
Open Road has a whole collection of National Parks and cute RV designs... you'll see 16 more like these on her page, along with a few larger cabin designs as well.

Another Year Creeps By
from Ink Circles
This is a delightful set of crooked little mandalas by Ink Circles - look closely - all Halloween-themed! Originally published as 12 monthly charts, this is the entire collection stitched as one. Tracy named each 3-1/2 inch panel - try to identify them! A Bone to Pick, A Little Batty, Amazing Ginsu, Black-Eyed Susan, Boxelders, Calamari Breath, Head Case, Ride This One Out, Rosy Outlook, Squash Watch, Sum of Your Fears, and Time for One More Stitch.
You can make individual pin cushions, or use the border and join them all together - the whole thing measures about 10 x 13 on 40ct. Coded for Classic Colorworks hand-dyed cottons or DMC, it's really a very fun piece!!!
Anna Ohman 1873
from Lila's Studio
By Lila's Studio, this is an adaptation of an antique sampler found at an estate sale in Illinois... probably stitched in Sweden.
Lila had to fix the top band, and chose Classic Colorworks Used Brick (3 skeins) for her piece which features an eagle adorned with maple leaves and surrounded with an oak leaf border. Just beautiful, it measures 158 x 156 in stitch count. Presented as a chart.
Charts with Pins from PuntiniPuntini
When I think of Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter... I think of carrots and clovers, picnics at the beach, leaves and acorns, and snowmen! Paola from Puntini Puntini has 4 cute little pillow designs coded for DMC floss that finish only 3 x 7 each on 32ct. She has included two of her hand-made clay buttons in each season's chart, and offers an awesome collection of CHARMING hand-made pins and buttons to garnish them even more - if you want! Even if you pass on these charts, her pins and buttons are Over-The-Top-Cute and very detailed. Enjoy!!!
Oh my gosh, we LOVE Paola's darling bitty hand-made polymer clay pins and buttons! We carry her entire line - every one of the sets is cuter than the last. Beautiful shading and design details... The Wool, Sweet Spring and Bees & flowers are all new design sets this Spring.
Remember these for special pin cushions or sewing cases and smalls. They make fun Stitcher Gifts for your friends, too! Trust me!
#6 Polish Pottery - A Garden Mug
from Olde Colonial Designs
Oh wow... Pam's pottery lady went all out for us! This awesome 'pudgy mug' measures almost 6 inches wide - with the handle, the cup itself is 4-inches 'fat' and a little over 4-inches high, and is very heavy. It is a piece of hand-painted Polish Pottery. Pam has designed some cross stitch for the cup lid... and added a little wooden handle!
Tiny blue flowers to match the pottery artwork, these VERY LIMITED kits include the chart, 32ct linen, hand-dyed Classic Colorworks flosses, backing fabric and round finishing boards for the lid and the little finished wood knob handle. Best part is that you get to enjoy the mug before your stitching is finished... and since the lid lifts off... you can actually use this for soup or coffee, wash it, and trim it with your needlework in between using it!
Good Night, Sleep Tight
from Fairy Wool in the Wood
Isn't this the cutest design? Stitch this on whatever you want... it's coded for 9 colors of DMC floss. Finishing approx 4 x 5 on 14/28ct... I think that is a little moose on the right. Check out the wise little owl on the left... just checking him out with his eyes wide open!
I remember that last part of this verse - *don't let the bed bugs bite!* If I had known at age 6 that bed bugs were REAL, I'd have never slept again! So, forget that part, and just enjoy the pair of forest friends having a sleep-over! Chart.
from All Through the Night
All Through the Night has several new things... I chose 10 of them... simple and cute... all are offered as charts. Sew Happy finishes 8 x 10 on 30ct Weeks Putty linen... he is worked in Gentle Art Sampler Threads.
I think he'd make a cute doorknob hanging for your stitching room! If you aren't lucky enough to have a *Stitching Suite*... maybe you have a thread box that needs a stitched top?
The Double Zippy Pouch
We are in love with this new size of plastic zipper pouch. It measures 9 x 13-1/2 and features two zippered compartments.
The main side fits a standard Cross Stitch leaflet, while the smaller compartment that measures 5 inches high fits the smaller card designs.
Separate spaces for patterns, fabrics, threads or scissors... we think it's a great development!!!!
Quakers in Holland and France from Tempting Tangles
I show my ignorance of World History by wondering if Quakers were IN Holland and France... but we liked these colorful designs... so we ordered them! So... separate the Quaker motifs from the charming city and country landscapes if you want - or NOT! Designed by Tempting Tangles, each measures 168 stitches square - so 10-1/2 inches on 32ct. Coded for Silks or DMC, Deborah has captured the charm of Amsterdam with those tall skinny houses, the canals, and the charming windmill from the countryside.
I love the 'shadows' in the background - like the houses just behind on the next street over. In France, you get villages in Provence, the rivers, the winerys, and of course Paris! Did you notice the Quaker motif made out of bicycles... or the one with the rooster?
Mountain View Bay
from By the Bay Needleart
Harbor Haven and Serenity Harbor IN MINIATURE! (well almost!) By the Bay's Donna Bayliss has released this fun piece that measures a mere 9 x 7 in size. It has her same design flavor and personality as the huge Serenity Harbor and Harbor Haven patterns we have... without the other 11 patterns and lifetime-stitching-committment.
Worked on 28ct Star Sapphire linen, don't you just want to LIVE in this picture? Coded for 24 shades of DMC, it's delightful, and offered as a single chart!
Jenny Bean The Parlour Sampler from Shakespeare's Peddler
Shakespeare's Peddler began designing this sampler several years ago... and has finally finished it! Jenny Bean is her imaginary young girl in Early America - we have the date of 1824 on here. Designed and released in 8 different parts over the years, we now have all the pieces and parts and can send you any or ALL of them! This delightful sampler tells about jenny's life, her surroundings, her beliefs, and at the bottom, we see her school, town and home.
The piece measures 810 x 170 - so on the recommended 36ct Picture This Plus Wren Linen, it finishes 45 x 9-1/2 inches in size. If you can't picture that - please refer to Our Mona - who is graciously 'modeling' next to the framed piece! We have several different counts and colors of fabric that this will look great on... every option will require a 1/2 yard cut of fabric - linen or Aida.
If you have been collecting this, you are probably missing parts 7 and 8 - (they will ship to our Auto-stitchers this week) but as I said, we can ship whatever parts you need! We love the finished piece... and love that 'Modeling Mona!!'
Native Americans from Ronnie Rowe
This piece speaks volumes! Stitched with Ronnie Rowe's favorite gunmetal DMC color of 844... you'll get to add 3072 to that image on the right to make it appear farther away, and then add a teeny bit of 3758 baby blue for that awesome sky!
Measuring 320 x 480 in stitch count, your fabric choice will dictate the finished size. Such a great piece, it'll finish approx 23-ish x 34 on 14ct... but could be only 8 x 12 over one on 40!
We have a fresh shipment of Ronnie's Cat's Eyes and Dog Portraits... they have been favorites for years! Click through to the inside page to see them all.
Samplers you can stitch for Knitters, Spinners and Wool-Lovers! from October House
October House is a new designer for Silver Needle. She has lots of cute designs - lots feature a knitting theme, so we Cross Stitchers can finally STITCH something for our favorite knitter! Everything comes in a chart pack... coded for DMCs or hand-dyed flosses and wools. Exceptionally cute stuff... here we go! Four Are pictured here - there are 5 more on her new page, so make sure to click through to see those as well!
Some of This Year's Blackbird Designs

Bags, drums, box tops, pin cushions, framed pieces... there are pictures galore along with the charts. Finishing and assembly instructions are also in here... it's such a pretty publication!
Liberty Hill Farm
from Summer House Stitche Workes
Summer House Stitche Workes has a CHARMING pair of patriotic designs that she has finished into little round stand-up cushions - Pin Drums. Worked on 32ct Weeks Dye Works Tin Roof Linen, these are stitched with a special pack of Sulky Threads. When you have stitched these two pieces... you'll STILL have enough thread left to stitch Hand's On's Memorial Day piece!! The girls planned their designs this way - and best of all the thread set is only $16.00!
The larger drum is 159 x 64 - and the smaller is 159 x 51. Super-duper-darn-cute... we even ordered the limited edition flower-pin packs to make those three pins poking from the tops! (I think those are little flower-shaped bits of wool that Cathy Habermann has done!) Love those bright colors... go check out Memorial Day, as well!
Yellow Warbler Biscornest
from Crossed Wing Collection
Paula from Crossed Wing Collection has designed her 4th stitched bird nest with coordinating scissor fob! The biscornu-shaped cushions are replicas of each birds nest - complete with their eggs stitched over one thread... AND they are stitched on both sides, so the bottom of the cushion looks like the bottom of the nest.
You are stitching 4 x 4 pieces and joining them together to make that unique shape that really DOES resemble a bird nest! The matching fob features the little bird - this one is a Yellow Warbler. Absolutely exquisite, all 4 of the different birds are presented in leaflet format... Chipping Sparrow, Ruby-Throated Hummingbird and Cardinal. We've seen these nests stitched - they are enchanting!
Teresa Kogut has Cute Punch Needle Designs
Then the Punch Needle Patterns! All of Teresa's come with the punching fabric.
(Note: when you click on these images, you'll be taken directly to the Punch Needle section of Teresa's page.)
Christkindlmarkt from Pickle Barrel Designs is Now Complete!
This is dear to the hearts of the ladies here at The Silver Needle! It is a set of small designs all stitched together of a Christmas Market Scene! We hosted a Christmas Markets Cruise trip down the Danube River with Jeannette Douglas 4 years ago - and are planning our next one THIS COMING December! So... everyone who went on our delightful trip - or who is going on the next one will have to have this!
By Pickle Barrel Designs, the top part is the header for the piece - check out those little gnomes (which have always been popular in Germany - but not here until recently!) Then, the glass Blowing booth - the first of the six stands. Parts 3 through 7 will be the glass ornament stand, a bakery, hot apple cider, (they all serve hot 'glu-wein' - hot sangria-type wine in special little mugs to collect from each market), hot pretzels and the roasted nuts! (We are only waiting for #7 for this series to finish. The individual stand designs all finish about 4 inches each. (Actually, there are terrific hand-made items at those markets too... and you should SEE the decorated trees the towns put up in City Center as well!)
ANYWAY, I know our gals will add metallics and beads and fun threads to these... and maybe even tape a few ticket stubs and market fliers to the back of their finished framed piece! Even if you aren't coming along on our next cruise... this is a super-charming piece! It's a must have! Coded for DMC and Weeks hand-dyeds, it finishes about 16 x 16 on 25ct Lugana - so any other fabric will make it smaller as well.
Lots of Designs from Une Croix, le temps d' un The'
Oh golly, I didn't take French in school... I can't pronounce this designer's company name... but I LOVE their designs! Over the years, we have had this little tree in the shop, and while I was in France last year... I personally bought that little squirrel pattern in a local needlework shop. So... I asked our distributor to find her... and look what we now have!!! 10 beautiful charming charts by Jennifer Lentini... I still can't read them, but they are coded in the *UNIVERSAL STITCHING LANGUAGE OF DMC!!!* (Life is good!) Choose any fabrics you like - you'll be able to tell color from the chart covers... maybe add some beads or fuzzy threads from your stash... you decide! I just LOVE them all!!! Each is presented in chart format, super-clear charting with red markings on the charts for any backstitches or stitch detailing. Click the pics to see the rest!
Gingerbread Mittens & Reindeer in Flight from Blackberry Lane Designs
Blackberry Lane has some darling mitten ornament charts that are just precious!
For a limited time, our charts from the recent market are coming with actual little metal mitten clips. When our first shipment runs out, no more clips will be included. We hear they are available at Hobby Lobby, so if your chart doesn't include them, HL is the place to find more!
DMC Actual-Swatch Color Cards
This is a comprehensive listing of DMC threads, the color numbers, and the listing of what color is manufactured in what weights of thread. (floss vs pearls 3, 5, 8 and 12.) It features pretty blocks of actual flosses all lined up in color family, so you can see how all the colors blend with each other. The varigated and metallics are also in here.
Use this to reference colors, help choose colors for your projects, match label-less threads... all sorts of stuff! For years DMC wasn't manufacturing these cards - too labor-intensive I guess. All we were getting were printed cards - not the same as the REAL threads in there - so these are wonderful, and we're happy!
Yes, there's even MORE!
