Painted Threads, Growing Love & Common Thread Stitcher's Mat from Threadwork Primitives
Here are three designs by Threadwork Primitives that are not new... but we have finally organized them together for you! All presented as charts, everything uses hand-dyed flosses and various neutral shades of hand-dyed linens.
Antique Scissors and Spools
from Shakespeare's Peddler
Here's a cute little design that appeals to every stitcher! Especially the scissor-hoarders! Stitch count is 80 x 90. Choose any fabric you want, and any color thread you want!
Theresa had some old lace, she added that... she says *do whatever you want!!!* Add a pocket to it somewhere to hold scissors... add some fun trim on the edges... make matching cushions for all your stitch buddies... anything! Offered as a chart.
Headmistress Samplers from Cross Stitch Antiques
These are two different sampler reproductions by Kathleen Littleton of Cross Stitch Antiques. (A very accomplished needle artist... between raising her 14 children, earning a law degree, and Masters degree in Theology, she designs samplers and runs an 1870's authentic general store in her hometown of Frankfort IL.) Presented in leaflet format, they are BEAUTIFUL! Coded for DMC floss, the colors you see on the covers and on the original samplers look alike -- nothing has faded in her originals -- and she has kept the pretty colors in her reproductions.
Miss Lucy Calcutt 1825
from Just Stitching Along
This is a STUNNING reproduction of a sampler stitched in 1825. Finishing approx 15 x 22 on 36ct, the chart is coded for DMC or silk threads. The colors in this are beautiful!!!! Rich reds and greens, the border is pretty and balanced.
All the interior pots and vines are organized and all lined up neatly. The red house anchors everything down at the bottom... and notice how those motifs are centered above it?
Pat's Favorite Needles
Designed by Pat Carson of Designs by Gloria & Pat... these are great little needles! Offered in envelopes of 25 needles, we have them in Tapestry 24, 26 and 28.
What makes them special is the super-long eye they feature. Coated in gold -- so it's easy to see, something about these makes them dreamy to use! The #28's fit regular Mill Hill glass beads, and the eye is HUGE compared to beading needles. Just very nice to use!
Cute Little Metal Rulers from Reflets de Soie
These are fun little metal rulers that can double a bit as thread holders. When I opened them though, to do my web words, I discovered that they are METRIC rather than INCHES! (Well this makes sense, because Reflets is from FRANCE for Pete's sake!
So... you might like that feature better than inches anyway!!! Something pretty and fun for your stitching bag or a dressing inside a fun sewing case! Choose from Kitty or Filigree -- they are decorated on both sides, as well! Our pics don't show it well, but these are very shiny!
Mother-of-Pearl *Round Hearts* Thread Organizer
from Reflets de Soie
Oh, this is a pretty little thing... it measures just 1-3/4 inches in diameter, and if you look closely... it looks like 6 hearts all joined together. You can wrap threads all around the outside of this, OR you can loop threads around each of the heart tops. Whatever floats your boat!
There is even a tiny hole drilled in each, so you can attach this into a sewing case or tether it to scissors or something.
The Hocus Pocus Hats! from Blackberry Lane
WOW... talk about a gorgeous and detailed set of pattens!!!! Marie Driskill has designed 4 *faces wearing hats.* Each is Halloween-themed, and TWO-SIDED. Her exquisite shading talents are showcased in all of them... they are STUNNING! Choose to stitch them individually and frame them flat or finish into 8 ornaments... OR make them into little miniature linen hats! She has the templates and instructions included for finishing options.
Stitched on Weeks 32ct Confederate Gray, Pumpkin or Peoria Purple Linens, using about 15 different shades of DMC floss (which for Marie, is not a lot!), each face finishes approx 2-3/4 x 3-1/2. Just bitty things, but her charts are nice and large and clear!
You can see the black display clamp in the pics holding up the hats... those are hand-made by Heart's Content's husband... so they are kind of special too! (They're on order, expected soon) Six-inch black iron twisting table clamps!
Get these patterns FIRST before you decide on fabrics and various JABCO embellishments, finishing wools, beads and perle cottons -- there are lots of choices here -- and you need to study them first. (You don't necessarily need all the add-ons) Here are the names for each -- remember, each chart features a front AND back design!
Presenting the 34th Annual Santa for 2018! from The Prairie Schooler
Just releasing... this happy trio is due in the shop any day! Same format as the other Santas dating back to 1984... same colors... same Prairie Schooler charm!
FYI: Several of the PS annual Santas are out of print as SINGLE card charts.

Pumpkins Thieves and Black Cat
New from Madame Chantilly
Halloween patterns are flying into the shop - just like they're on witches brooms!!!!!
Halloween March from Teresa Kogut
This is the cutest!!!!! Teresa Kogut has a new chart that is so colorful and charming with an old-fashioned personality. Solid stitching on 35ct linen (18 Aida would work too especially since you are covering all your fabric with stitching) this finishes about 8-1/2 x 7-1/4 inches.
The background calls for Weeks Dye Works Onyx hand-dyed floss -- 2 skeins, but the rest takes a whopping 31 shades of regular DMC floss! The chart is a little involved because all that color shading is CHARTED -- there are no other hand-dyeds in there to do the work for you! Anyway, I love it!!!
Louise Lallier 1901 from Reflets de Soie
This sampler reproduction by Reflets de Soie is breathtaking! Presented as a chart... or chart with silks... it measures 312 x 412 in stitch count and is coded for DMC floss as well as the silk. I love the ornate floral border, the alphabet (letters are about 25 x 25) is 'pretty nice' too! Then there is all that lovely country scenery -- it is spectacular! Can you see the church, the country houses, the chickens... the donkey in the center talking to the little dog is so neat! He even has a basket of baguettes on his back!
I'd never in a million years get this whole thing stitched... but you could make those cottages (40 x 60-ish) into pin cushions, or the flower urns or even the chickens (60 x 70). The colors (we have the silks available) are bold and just dreamy... I just cannot tell you how lovely this piece is!!!!!
In All Things Be Exceedingly Diligent
from Needlework Press
Here is a charming sampler by Needlework Press. It's long and thin, blocky and bold, and looks to be super easy to stitch. Stitched on 32ct Natural linen, it'll finish approx 25-1/2 x 6, and it'd make a really cool pillow on your couch!
Coded for DMC floss, just don't let any one SIT on this!!! The smaller take-out part of the design -- minus the alphabets finishes a mere 3 x 10! Presented as a leaflet.
Joust Another Anniversary: Game On! from Peacock and Fig
Peacock & Fig has an awesome collection of crowns and this jousting scenarios to celebrate family occasions!!! Joust Another Anniversary might be perfect for a couple you know! Presented as a chart, coded for DMC floss, it finishes approx 8 x 8 on 14ct.
Bow Before Me... It's My Birthday!
Well, that speaks volumes! Personalize it for *that special someone* or just make it as the Family Birthday Sign to display every day someone in the family has a birthday. 7 x 8-1/2 on 14/28ct... DMC, 4 different bead colors and gold metallic.
We also have a wedding piece (At least you're not forming a dynasty by marrying your cousin!) and a couple of Birth Announcements. Then we have the births of the Royal Highnesses, and The King and Queen. Really a delightful set of pattens, all are clear charts, and they'll make you smile!
from Long Dog Samplers
This is a super-fun sampler by Long Dog that features multiple village scenes, quilt motifs, and cute repeating motif borders. It measures 130 x 298 -- 9 x 21 on 28ct -- and is coded for DMC or Gentle Art Sampler Thread hand-dyed floss.
You can do a lot with this. Break it all apart, make small cushions, whatever! Quiltz was designed 'with a gentle nod of recognition and admiration for Pennsylvania Dutch Samplers.' A cute note inside the chart from the designer, she says you might be really sick of this by the time you put in the last stitch... but that might be better than sitting with the whole family in the 'stove room' every evening in the olden days! Presented as a chart.
Reproduction Samplers from Hands Across The Sea Samplers
Here are antique samplers -- all beautifully re-charted -- so we can enjoy them again, for years to come! Presented in full color leaflet format, these publications are ABSOLUTELY LOVELY! The paper is glossed and heavy, the charts are printed in full color, and there is a bit of history included in each about its particular sampler. After you read the descriptions, you gain a new appreciation for the content of each piece and it's historic significance.
If you can get one finished -- what a gorgeous heirloom you will have! Choose any fabrics you want -- they'll be YOUR samplers! Even if you don't stitch a single one of these -- these are so beautifully done!
Unique New Things from Shannon Christine Designs
Snow Globes for Christmas
Here's a fun trio of charts with a Farmhouse feel for Christmas. Little snowglobes inside of mason canning jars! By Shannon Christine, each is charted for DMC floss and uses a bit of metallic for accents. Choose a light gray or natural color of fabric (your choice) so that the white snow shows up. Truck measures 70 x 68 (5 x 5 on 14/28ct.), Deer is 70 x 88, and sleigh is the largest at 94 x 56. These would make cute stand-up cubes.
This is an interesting design... is it worked on a white background, you filling in all that gray and black? The cover picture looks like it, but the inside chart shows a gray background with white filled in. I think YOU can choose! The rolling waves are the color in here... a super-fun paisley/flowery look to them. Finishes 93 x 93 in stitch count -- so about 6 x 6 on 14/28ct.
New Arrivals from Heart in Hand
Cecilia continues three of her collections of seasonal designs with these three individual small charts!
Here Lies My Needle from Shakespeare's Peddler
Remember that flier we send you every year around the end of January about the Japanese holiday that celebrates the hard work of NEEDLES? Teresa did this sampler to kind of commemorate that holiday! The Festival of Broken Needles!
Theresa's sampler is charming! Stitched on hand-dyed linen, it provides a place for you to park broken, rusted or old needles... you can even leave threads in them from special projects. (What about finding Mom's needles still threaded... you could preserve some of them here.) *Here lies my needles, some bent, some broken some rusty.* Finishing approx 11 x 8, stitched with hand-dyed flosses, garnish this with antique buttons. The bottom area is a cut of Weeks Dye Works Red Pear Houndstooth wool.. isn't it pretty on there? Really a special piece for a stitcher. Presented as a chart.
Le Marquoir de Marie from Reflets de Soie
This is a gorgeous Country French inspired sampler that is full of unusual motifs, lots of color and pretty alphabets. Offered as the chart or chart with a lavish spread of 46 shades of silk thread... it measures 326 x 274. It'll be an impressive 18 x 15 on 35ct!!!
The borders are pretty. The chalet in the middle is charming... the train is so unusual! The flower vase and baskets on the sides measure about 40 x 60 stitches each -- make individual pin cushions out of those! And of course, who doesn't love the chickens, cat and dog down along the bottom? The colors are clear and bright... you could distress this when you are finished... or just break apart all the design elements and do a whole set of cushions for a spectacular basket display!
from Heart in Hand
Cecelia Turner has a LOVELY new hand-made stoneware pottery bowl that is a charming little ORT Bowl! Made by artist Christie Goodfellow, the bowls are just dreamy feeling. A soft creme matte glazed finish, each measures approx 3-1/2 inches across at the top and 2 inches high. It's a perfect size in your hand.
Next, Cecelia is designing interchangeable toppers for the little bowls. *Land I Love* & *Bluebird's Nest* are the first two rounds. Presented as charts in her small card format, each design measures 45 x 45 in stitch count -- so on 32ct, they finish less than 3 x 3. (Remember that you probably have a MILLION smaller designs that size... so this beautiful little bowl will work for those as well!)
Heart in Hand has finishing instructions on her website to make the disc lids for Heartware -- they don't wiggle around -- so you'll want to take a look at that. Anyway, CHARMING CHARMING little bowl, with the possibility of a million cute designs for the top!!!
1726 Garden Pinkeep Kit & Ann Wright's 1726 Pinkeep Drum Kit -- Two Nashville Market Exclusives
from Samplers Not Forgotten
I guess 1726 was a busy year for pretty pin keeps! Kimberly Nugent has a pair of kits that include lovely linens and really pretty printed finishing fabrics!
Three Little Kittens and Red's Tree House
from Ink Circles
A pair of smaller designs -- new by Ink Circles -- I think they'd both be neat in a cabin retreat somewhere! Each is offered in chart format.
The Lap Stitch Doodler Frames
These are the same idea as Doodlin' Around's other Lap Frames... but see how the side bars curve opposite those on the other frames? Some people like them one way, some like them the other!!!
from Lila's Studio
Well, just like her companioning Halloween Quakers chart... we aren't even sure The Quakers CELEBRATED Christmas... but we think they should have! Lila's studio has another awesome sampler full of fun motifs.
There are snowmen inside one motif, mittens in another. Santa's boots are down there too. Stitched on a mangy Dapple Gray PTP fabric (or anything you want!), this is coded for Gentle Art Sampler threads or DMC, and it finishes approx 13 x 9.
from Priscilla's Pocket
Priscilla's Pocket did another little blue design -- A Snowman -- for this year. The other three -- bunny, kitten and cat are just as bitty and just as cute. Little bonuses to complement her lovely stoneware patterns, this comes as a small kit of 32ct Tin Roof Weeks Linen with Gentle Art's Black Raspberry Jam hand-dyed floss and enough of Dames of the Needle's blue ball trim to edge your little cushion.
Just cute... last year, they showed the little bunny stitched in several different pastel shades of floss... pink, yellow, mint green, lavender. Just find the ball trim first, then floss to match! So cute!
Hope Blooms - USING ALL YOUR NEW 35 DMCs!
from SamSarah Design Studio
From SamSarah Studio this inspirational quote from Lady Bird Johnson has been transformed into a cute piece of cross stitch. Patti used the entire set of DMC's 35 new colors, and put every one of them into this design!
It is shown on Stormy Night Belfast Linen... but we think any creme, white, yellow... (lots of colors, really) would look good with this because of the color variety throughout. Finishes approx 6 x 8 on the 32ct... GET OUT THAT NEW TIN OF FLOSS and start using it!!! Hope Blooms is presented as a leaflet.
Beach Dreams from Praiseworthy Stitches
This is a fun loooooonnnnggg design that can be stitched and framed as a flat picture or finished into a round drum pin cushion! Another pattern with lots of design choices, this is worked on Weeks Dye Works Confederate Gray linen which comes in several different counts. It finishes approx 4-1/2 x 13-1/2 on 32ct. Stitched with hand-dyed Sampler Threads or DMC, there is a JABCO handmade clay button pack available that includes sand dollars, a star fish and lighthouse.
FOR A LIMITED TIME we have a set of conch shell (real shells) topped counting pins for the cushion top, and a finishing kit of twine, Skirtex, puffy lining... all the stuff (except stuffing) you need to construct the drum. (So quoting pricing options here is a nighmare!) It's a real cute design, the colors and subject are just delighful!
New Designs from La D Da!

They come in a 2-1/2 x 4 clear plastic storage envelope -- perfect to keep it protected. Images of old needlework... the scissor and pin cushion design is a stitched image in deep red shades.

We have a new set of 4 spring-y birds by Artist -- Debbie Mumm. Charted by Mill Hill and garnished with just a few glass beads, these are presented as complete kits. Finishing approx 5 x 5, they are worked on 16ct chocolate brown Aida with DMC floss and those glistening bead accents. Gorgeous, fresh, young and current colors, they are very different from anything else we have... and totally different from any of the other Mill Hill beaded things.
Don't know which one will be your favorite... might want a pair! Kits include the chart, paper, flosses, beads an needle. The brown frames are available separately.
Two New Samplers
from Brenda Keyes of The Sampler Company
A pair of samplers has arrived and each is charming. Stitched over one or two threads, they are coded for regular DMC floss. Each suggests just a basic cream fabric, you can always distress after stitching, or choose something hand-dyed.
More Gorgeous Berries from Erica Michaels
Linda Stolz has a stunning collection of stitched strawberry-shaped pin cushions you could actually poke pins into (Yikes!) or maybe hang on your Christmas tree! Berries for all the seasons, some samplers, some bees, some sea-shory with mermaids... she has a two different berries for each theme. Multiple stitch options for them... choose 40ct silk gauze or linen, or larger 28 or 32 linens. (Just because one is CALLED the *Silk* option -- it doesn't mean you HAVE to stitch that one on silk! And vise/versa.. the *Linen* charts CAN be done on 40ct linen or gauze!)
The smaller versions (approx 1 x 2) in the pics are the silk (40ct) options, the larger (approx 3 x 4) are the linen pieces. Designs for each ARE DIFFERENT... study the pics a little, you can see that. *Silk* berry charts come with cut of 40ct silk gauze; *Linen* berries do not include linen.
Hold on for SIX MORE yummy berries... all are here... ENJOY these low-calorie options!
VERY detailed... PuntiniPuntini offers matching sets of pins and buttons. Directly from Italy, these super-intricate polymer clay buttons and pins are incredible! Actual piece counts vary on each set, but ALL ARE SPECTACULAR. Pin tops average 1/4 to less than 1/2 an inch in size, buttons are slightly larger --- but not much, most are about 1/2 an inch.
We have Christmas, Vegetables, Sewing, Deserts, Farm Animals -- 17 different sets in all so far! I don't know how you can choose a favorite... I couldn't... so I bought them ALL! I've chosen three sets to highlight here; MAKE SURE to see the rest! (We can't believe the prices in these either... even if I COULD make these... mine would be twice the price!)
Practically Perfect in Every Way
from Lilli Violette
Here's a darling pic of Ms Mary Poppins against her London sky!!!
Just a darling picture -- stitch count is 214 x 122, so approx 15 x 9 on 14/28ct. Using nine shades of DMC, this is presented as a chart.
Pretty Fillagree Needle Minders and Beaded Threaders by My Big Toe Designs
This is a nice collection of small implements to help make your stitching more fun! Small and hand-made, they'd make nice stitcher gifts this season.
The Black House
from Long Dog Samplers
This is a fun piece by Long Dog Samplers -- it is worked on white, but you could do the reverse and stitch it on black -- if you have really good vision!
Measuring 111 x 145, this will finish a petite 7 x 9 on 32ct... and is coded for Sampler Threads of Raven, Gingersnap, Tea Rose, Apricot Blush, Tropical Ocean, Lexington Green, Harvest Basket, Banker's Gray, Holly Berry, Cornhusk, Briar Rose and Uniform Blue, or regular DMC floss.
I love the colors in this against that black... even the digital pic on the chart front is pretty!
2018 Collector's Heart Kit
from Heart in Hand
Well... this is the 20th annual heart design by Cecilia Turner. Such a cute collection of fresh and contemporary LOVE designs... we suggest these as small wedding samplers these days. (Nobody young wants the heavy hardanger band samplers... they want clean and fresh! Heart in Hand has some of the very best wedding designs available!)
Anyway, this kit comes with charts for both designs, two cuts of linen, a clay button and a few beads. You add bits of floss from your stash. We don't have ALL the past 20 years of Collector's Hearts in stock, but do have an impressive collection.
Peppermint Polar Bear
from Artful Offerings
Oh gosh, isn't this little guy cute??? He's peeking out of the greenery just to make sure you are there!!!
Choose a wintry blue/gray fabric (Smokey Pearl, Star Sapphire, Misty Blue) he finishes approx 5 x 6 on 28ct. Coded for DMC floss, HE does feature Gentle Art Simply Wool if you want to make him look fuzzy and warm. Presented as a chart.
Halloween Quaker from Lila's Studio
WOW, is this a cool piece!!!!! By Lila's Studio, this is stitched on Picture This Plus's Murky Linen -- it's a dark, drab but dramatic muddy grey-brown fabric! (Simply delicious, as it's name does not suggest!) Halloween Quaker measures a generous 261 x 180, so it finishes approx 16 x 11 on 32ct. Stitched with Classic Colorworks hand-dyed flosses, this has several cool elements to it.
The Quaker-inspired motifs are fun, especially the unusual spiders in one, and the black cats in another. That little village at the bottom is cool, the witch legs and boots are colorful, but your eye really goes to that silouette right in the center! Beautiful colors of thread against that fabric, chart calls for 40ct... we can order that for you... 32 is a little less scary to see!
New Mini-Sled Patterns for Christmas Ornaments
from Sue Hillis Designs

Teenie Weenie Bikinis by Meridian Designs
Oh my gosh, this is the cutest and funniest collection of little bikinis that someone you KNOW would (or shouldn't !) wear! Pictured here are Santa Baby, Summer Melons, Super Heroine and Peace Officer. OK... THINK about ladies you know... Santa Baby - who is getting married at Christmastime? Whose husband plays Santa Claus every year? Melons? (Who do you know that has a set of those?) Super Heroine - what a fun thing to stitch for someone special who has saved your life!
We have 13 different bikinis in this collection... and they are AWESOME! One of my favorites is the police woman - she has hand-cuffs and her charm in a gun!!! There's a nurse that might like this stitched in her locker at work - to remind her of off-time from her stressful job... there is an Autumn one for the chick who just cannot let Summertime go... and *God Save The Queen* -- a British one!!! (There is even a Bavarian one with a pretzel!) Each is offered as a small chart with its special charm and measure about 50 x 60 stitches in size. They are coded for DMC flosses, maybe a few beads, occasionally a metallic or fuzzy thread... all normal things you have in your stash! Cute as can be!
Three New Designs from Annie Beez Folk Art
Christmas in the Woods and Paradise Street!
from Le Temps Une Croix
Oh my Gosh - Little Friends from Valerie Pfeiffer
If these aren't the cutest little people... they are each only 2 x 3 inches in size!!! Presented as small charts, they are coded for DMC floss, and each pattern has two charts -- one that highlights the cross stitches, the other that highlights any backstitching.
Absolutely precious, the birds are also offered in other larger designs by Valerie -- pictured on our inside pages. They are 'kind of pricey' -- we are aware of that -- but I guess it's less expensive than planning a trip to the UK just to bring a few home!
Bead-Charm-Button Storage Box
Wow, this is a petite and functional storage system for teeny tiny stuff!!!! Our 6 x 3-1/2 x 1-1/2 inch snapping closure box holds 25 different treats. Clear, so you can see what's inside, open to reveal removable dividers that separate 5 towers of screw-top jars. Each mini-jar is approx 1 inch round and 1/2 an inch high. They screw together -- so the lid on one becomes the bottom of the next.
VERY secure, and also clear so you can see what's inside... these even work for wet creams and lotions in your cosmetic travel bag! Everything is safe, organized, and compact! The little box weighs about 8 ounches.
Presenting Just Nan's Peacock Garden Scissor Roll
In celebration of her 25 years of designing, Nan is treating us to a darling 2-1/2 x 10-1/2 inch stitched roll to store a favorite pair of scissors! When stitches are done, scissors can rest. A fun needlework accessory, the design features peacocks and tulips on the outside with more peacocks and garden flowers plus that charming verse and padded scissor pocket -- all rolled up on the inside. The roll closure is a snap with fancy gold cube bead, and there are beads and pink pearls that embellish both the inside and outside!
The finished roll stand 2 inches tall and will hold a 3-1/2 inch pair of embroidery scissors. Top it all of with the included matching Peacock Rose Pin. Stitched on 32ct Flax Belfast Linen with DMC flosses, there is a touch of gold metallic as well. The chart includes the beads, pearls, snap, gold cube bead, over-dyed violet wool for the lining, the Peacock Rose Pin and complete finishing instructions. Use your own DMCs and metallic from your stash.
Miniature Scissor and Key Fobs from Michael Powell
Presenting a delightful set of miniature key and scissor fobs -- all featuring the artwork of Michael Powell! I have always loved his things... and since he showed at market this Spring we were able to treat ourselves to lots of fun things!!! This is a collection of 6 different PAIRS of designs -- each is TWO-SIDED -- so each kit has essentially 4 designs in it! All are worked on 18ct canvas -- don't panic -- (it just makes a stronger and more durable fob when finished.) All Cross Stitch, the larger piece is the scissor fob -- 36 x 36 stitches -- finishing 2 x 2, while the key fob is a smaller companion version of the same design -- 27 x 27, finishing 1-1/2 inches square. Different on the fronts and backs, Michael has each of the 4 designs charted twice -- crosses on one chart, backstitch on another for clarity. All the flosses are included for everything... these are DARLING!!!!!
New Sewing Clamp Box from Lone Elm Lane
A charming new box featured on the cover of With Thy Needle's newest design... this little box is SO COOL! A concept by Brenda Gervais that Stephanie Elmer brought to be... this hand-made wooden box measures approx 4 x 4 x 3 with a clamping system that reaches down another 6 inches. It features a 1-inch deep recessed opening for your needlework. Next, there is a little 3 x 3 square drawer approx 1-inch deep that pulls out, and finally, the bottom features a 6-inch screwing clamp attachment that can fit up to a 1-1/2 inch thick table edge!
By far the coolest little box I have seen in a while... what an endearing decoration for your needlework! Currently offered in only the Vintage Dove finish... what a fun and unique way to finish and display a pretty pin cushion! If you are worried about damaging a table, consider a piece of felt underneath the box between it and your table, and a bitty piece underneath. You might want to clamp it out of reach of little hands -- this is the most intriguing thing -- and awfully fun to play with!!!!!
Chalkboard Quartet from Mill Hill
These are different for Mill Hill - and promise to be really fun to stitch! Their classic kits -- these are worked in 28ct Gumnetal linen with DMC flosses. I don't think there are too many beads in any of them... just the backstitches and straight stitches that make up the charm of the hand-drawn chalk-art look.
Finishing approx 5 x 5 or 5 x 7... give them a try!
John James has run out of Platinum Needles, and because costs have risen so much, will not be plating more. Yarn Tree, one of our industry distributors, purchased their back-stock that were loose -- just bulk -- and re-packaged them in their cool little screw-top clear plastic needle vials! So, now we have Platinum Tapestry Needles again!!! ('till these are gone, too!)
Some stitchers have allergies to nickel -- the normal plating on needles -- so Platinum is a more comfortable stitching option. (Do your needles get brown-ish (tarnished) and draggy??? If so, you are probably allergic to nickel!) So... for a happy time, we have Tapestry Needles available in #24 for 14/28 counts, #26 for 32-ish counts and #28 for smaller count fabrics.
A Smattering of Designs by Stitches Through Time -- More on our inside pages!
Yes, there's even MORE!
