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!
Charming New Designs from Madame La Fee
All the way from France, even though her instructions are written in French, you can always read the DMC floss numbers and match them to the symbols! All 4 of these finish about 12 x 12 on 16/32ct fabric... our shop models of some of her other things are generous in size and really lovely.
On the Village scene, you can stitch just that square take-out of the church. The bear on the NOEL piece is about 45 x 45 stitches and the locomotive on there is about 30 x 45. Very do-able as ornaments, her shading is really nice. The Vin de France and Souvenir de Paris charts could be special remembrances from past trips!
from The Workbasket
This is a set of 4 geographical samplers by The Workbasket. I think the motifs in each are really cute and unique, and offer something DIFFERENT to stitch! The chart contains the four 42 x 70 designs.
Woods has a little fox in it. Mini Desert has a roadrunner a snake, cactus and I think a scorpion! Mini Bay has a mermaid, pirate ship and a little octopus, and Mini Mountain has an eagle, moose and big brown bear! Might be fun to stitch for your cabin by the water or the mountains!
from Shakespeare's Peddler
Here is Shakespeare's Peddler's newest reproduction sampler - Hannah's Sampler. Theresa found the original in terrible condition, but could tell she loved the leafy border and the charming farmhouse - next to the brick wall - covering that little babbling brook. Very pretty colors of reds and greens in here, the row of diamonds below the alphabet are done with Rice Stitch. Those bricks in the wall and the waves in the water are all loosely placed in the original... so neat... you can do that too. Stitched on 36ct Weeks Straw Linen with silks (Gloriana, Needlepoint Inc and Au Ver a Soie) or DMC, it measures a generous 16-1/2 x 15-1/2 in size.
Teresa came to Tulsa for a weekend retreat in our new 'She Shed' Stitching Room... and presented this sampler as our Silver Needle exclusive. (Our class included three small take-out designs from this charming piece... so the weekend was really a treat.) 'Raggamuffin #3' refers to her third antique reproduction piece that came from a really ratty, mangy, and damaged sampler that just needed a little love! So... Hannah's original sampler as well as her reproduction now hang happily at our shop... and she'll be here for years to come!
Mini Stash 'n Store Trays - More Colors!
You may have seen the gigantic version of these in fabric stores... but these are HALF that size and measure in at a petite 2 x 4 x 1-1/4 inches in size! White plastic 'tubs' with a colored silicone lining... the little 'flower petal openings' in the silicone waves hold your 3-1/2 embroidery scissors, pens, larger needles, laying tools, even your glasses!!!
The soft silicone just nestles around anything you stick into these, but it pulls right out of the tub so you can wash it, (if you spill your Diet Coke in there by accident!) Just the most handy little table-top caddy, keeps everything right in one place, ready to grab!
Note: navy and gray are no longer color options.
Presenting the Bride and Groom Sugar Skull Style! from Satsuma Street
If you've ever seen the movie *Coco* these will make you smile. Super colorful... you DO have to have the right couple to appreciate these... but they ARE fun, and really unique!
Stitched on white 14ct perforated paper, they finish approx 3 x 4 in size. The kits include the paper, chart, flosses, beads and colorful sequins, and the bride even has a bit of tulle for her veil! Too Darn Cute!
The Nutcracker Suite Ornament Collection from Satsuma Street
These are positively enchanting - just like their story! Jody Rice's set of 8 paper ornaments are stitched on metallic 14ct perforated paper - the Snow Queen and Mouse King are on silver - the rest are on gold. Each measures approx 2-1/4 x 5 inches, and is stitched with DMC floss. Every one is garnished with glass beads and sequins - I see some snowflakes and flowers in them... so between the shiny paper and the glistening beads and those sequins, these really sparkle!
Super colorful, these look stunning on your Christmas Tree because they are lightweight and can hang on the tips of the branches or where-ever your twinkle lights will catch them. The kits come with a huge, gorgeous color chart, the flosses, beads, sequins, needle and good instructions for sewing on the beads and finishing.
Next, The Halloween Collection from Satsuma Street
These are just as cute and festive as the Nutcracker Collection... absolutely bursting with color and personality! They are done on 14ct Black Perforated Paper - which is actually pretty easy to see! For a change - you can work on black and SEE IT! Varied shapes and sizes, they are all in the 2-1/2 to 4-inch neighborhood. The Pumpkin King Nutcracker is done on silver metallic paper and he's 5 inches.
Each is stitched with DMCs of chartreuse/apple green, brilliant oranges, bright aqua, gorgeous purples, and deep fuscias. Totally yummy colors! The are garnished with glass beads and sequins in just the right places to make the designs 'pop!' Kits include the chart, paper, flosses, beads, sequins, needles and instructions for sequin-and-bead-attachment and finishing. It'll be hard to choose favorites!
New Scissors Arrivals from WASA of Solingen, Germany!
We have always carried a wonderful selection of luscious embroidery scissors by WASA of Solingen, Germany, but we have a fresh shipment to show off! Friendly competitors with our DOVO friends... both companies operate in the famed 'Solingen Region' of Germany, and just like the registered name of "Kona Coffee" they cannot SAY they are Kona if they do not manufacture the coffee in the famous region of Hawaii, or Solingen Steel, if they are not from Solingen!
Mill Hill's Autumn Series *Button & Beads 2020
This year's set features 2 specialty coffee designs that match the Cappucino and Latte that we have had for several years... so now that set is up to 4 designs.

The 2020 Autumn Harvest Series Kits from Mill Hill
This year's 3 x 3-ish ornament-sized designs... they are DARLING this time around! Mill Hill describes them: At the pumpkin patch people pick their 'Pumpkin Trio' and hear the 'Gobble Gobble' of the Thanksgiving turkey. To find the 'Red Cap Mushrooms' they will have to take a hike in the forest, the 'Webster' tries to scare you away knowing the danger of the red mushrooms and above in the tree, the 'Moonlit Owl' also hoots out a warning about the poison in the mushrooms! After all the fun, you are invited to 'Come Stitch For a Spell!

Consider the Lilies & His Eye Is On The Sparrow from Heartstring Samplery
Oh my goodness... Beth has created her companion sampler to His Eye Is On The Sparrow! (Lilies is on the left... Sparrow is on the right.)
She is celebrating her first 'book' design - "complete with staples and 8-1/2 x 11 pages!" Consider the Lilies is HUGE - just like Sparrow. Packed full of charming motifs and tons of details... it'll be treat to have stitched in the shop! We don't have specific numbers yet or a color listing... but from the pic it looks stunning!
His Eye Is On The Sparrow is already in print - it has been for several years. Beth has printed a limited number of that chart (which is also still available in the smaller chart format) in the BOOK format to kind of go with Lilies. There are lots more details on this design on our Heartstring Samplery page.
Blue Moon Manor and Gingerbread Cottage from Praiseworthy Stitches
Pepperberry's Halloween Lucky 13 - The Halloween Lollipop Series from Pepperberry Designs
We have all 13 charts in this fun set now. All are stitched on weeks Dye Works linens of Chartreuse, Pumpkin, Sky or Peoria Purple, with DMC, Weeks hand-dyeds and a few metallics tossed in. Each finishes about 4 or 5 inches in size on 32ct. The contour shape on the finishing treatment lets you concentrate on the designs without too much extra fabric showing. They've trimmed them all in the same edging... you could change that if you want... and all of them are stuck onto sticks - like little lollipops.
I'm thinking they need to be poked into a big 'ol bowl of candy... but I'm not sure the candy would last to hold them up! A real cute collection... choose just a few favorites if you don't think you can finish them all!
Birds and Animals for the Seasons - I Colori delle stagioni #3 and #4
We have come across two set of designs - Birds and Animals for the 4 Seasons - that are charming! From Serenila di Campagna, they come from Italy, and include the seasons charted in English, French and Italian.
The animals one features a cat, squirrel, geese and rabbit... each abut 90 x 50 in stitch count - without their seasons' name below.
The birds are about the same size. I believe all are stitched on Country Vintage Mocha linen, and they are coded for tons of luscious DMC colors! Stitch them together as long pieces, or simply the smaller animals.
Three Little Witches
from Pine Berry Lane
You get a trio of pin cushion-sized designs in the package - each finishes only 1-1/2 x 2 though!
Find some fun trims, finish them back to back... super small and quick.
We have 16 beautiful new arrivals by Marjorie Massey.
Even though she's French... we can still read the chart symbols and our familiar DMC color numbers! (Her chart titles are very confusing and numbering is not consistent, so we'll try to do our best labeling them in our mouse-overs and dropdowns!) All are available in chart format, very clear, colored graphs. Remember, you can change colors and fabrics - it's YOUR stitching!!!!
Circles & Stitches Hand-Made Pin Cushion Kits
Oh wow... these are so colorful and fun!!!!! By Local Farm Girl, these are complete kits to construct these darling donut-sized felted wool pin cushions.
Packaged in a little cardboard berry box, you get the wools for the cushion top, base, and circles, needles of various sizes, hand-dyed wool threads for the stitching, two wool covered buttons (with a coordinating/contrasting button on the bottom side), even the printed freezer paper with templates on it, and iron-on stabilizer for those topping circles... AND 3/4 C of crushed walnut shells for filler! (whew!)
Four different colorways, choose between a restful red and gray combo, the vibrant gold and pumpkin with mossy green, the deep purple eggplant with aqua accents, or that yummy lime one with bright pink and a little soft gray!
Some Dramatic Pieces from Autumn Lane Stitchery
Here are 4 designs that are coded for DMC floss, but beg for some fun metallics to be added in - by YOU!
*See Your Stuff* - Clear Plastic Storage Zipper Pouches
WOW, these are awesome-turbo-super-nice heavy-duty plastic zippered pouches! Made from that heavy clear plastic you find on purses and backpacks, each is trimmed with VERY heavy-duty bright and cheerful polyester 'canvas' fabric.
Our sets of three matching pieces measure 16 x 16, 12 x 13, and 6 x 8. The middle-size one holds a full-size Prairie Schooler leaflet! And the big one... wow! See? The big one at right is holding 6 boxes of Girl Scout Cookies!
Each pouch is constructed the same way, except that the largest one features a top carrying strap. We have *6* different colorways to make your life more complicated, but we're happy anyway, because you will LOVE whatever color you choose!
SEE YOUR STUFF in these... each top zipper is heavy-duty black... the sizes are nice and roomy, and because of the way they are sewn, they expand quite a way out. Very Nice for a lot of different uses!
6 Different colors: I looked through our thread drawers to find close matches: Red matches DMC 321, Blue - 798, Green - (nothing! It's that awesome neon, but close to 906 and 907), Purple - 550, Yellow - 973 and Orange - 608.
Two New colors of our See Your Stuff Pouches
These are super-strong, heavy-duty, very nicely-sized see-through plastic pouches. We carry them in Royal Blue, Brilliant Red, Bright Yellow, Eye-Popping Lime Green, Bright Orange, Deep Purple and now a really pretty Light Blue and a Deep Teal.
Remember, I showed you a pic of the big one holding 6 boxes of Girl Scout Cookies a few months ago... well. cookies are long gone, but the awesome pouches remain!
Serenity Harbor - The Complete Piece from By the Bay Needleart
This charming scene was designed in 2014. Just as Harbor Haven, it was designed as a 12-part stitch-along thing. We have everything together now in one set... so you're good to go.
TONS of information inside about thread colors, fabric choices, but basically, the entire stitch count is 171 x 557 - so a commanding 6 x 20 on 14/28ct. Lots of stitches, this is so pretty when it's finished... several of our ladies have stitched it!
Harbor Haven - The Complete Village from By the Bay Needleart
Donna Bayliss' 12-part Harbor Haven is FINISHED - and we have all the parts! Stitch just one or two sections - joined or singly for a bitty village - or do the whole thing, it's charming! Finishing 5 x 42 on 32ct, changing fabric size will really give you finished size options. The single scenes are only 3-1/2 x 5. Charted for DMC floss, there are no special stitches in here... but she says you can add anything you want... and sub hand-dyeds if you have something you want to use.
Our *complete sets* also contain Donna's BONUS design Soul Food for the Needlesmith - as a FREEBIE for getting the entire set of charts. It finishes approx 7 x 7 on 32ct, and can be purchased separately from the Harbor Haven Set of charts.
Folk Art Scissor Block Kit from La-D-Da
This is Lori's second little block kit like this... she did one last year... but it is retired, and now this year's has 20 NEW pics to use! You get a 2-inch square wood block with a hole drilled into one side. Paint it whatever color you like (Or distress it, or sand and stain it, or wax it -- whatever you want!) Then, it comes with 20 beautiful vintage-styled pictures of 'stuff.' This time, we have antique children, animals, houses and quilts. You choose the 5 you want to feature, cut them apart from the rest, and get out a jar of Mod Podge and glue 'em on that little block. Zip Zap -- cute as can be!
Sticky felt is included to line the block bottom, as well as a little ribbon and a charm to make a small scissor fob too. Best of all... there are extra blocks available (in case it stresses you out to decide on only 5 of your pictures and not to be able to use the rest... but maybe you have a 'wood-guy' in the house who can make them, too! Then you have enough pics to make 4 blocks.)
