So Much Cute & New From Brenda Gervais!
Presenting Holiday Hoopla - A New Series of Smalls from With Thy Needle & Thread
Brenda is celebrating the seasons with some cute 3-inch designs... Easter will be the first... and it releases March 3rd. She says all are fun and quick to stitch. She is showing them mounted in little 3-inch wooden embroidery hoops... but if you're hot a *hooper* little cushions or something like that will work well too. (40ct needed for the 3-inch hoop finishing option.)
The second chart in the series will release in late April or early May and celebrate The 4th of July.
Ode to the Ort #2 from With Thy Needle & Thread
This is With Thy Needle's second limited market kit (remember the Ort #1 Red Berry Basket from 2 years ago?) Stitch this tiny bluebird over one thread on 28ct Mushroom Lugana... he's only 52 x 52 stitches - so he finishes LESS THAN 2 INCHES in size! The kit includes a tin box (we think you have to paint it... and that she gives instructions for that...). A tiny hand-sewn strawberry emery dangles from the box lid - Brenda says it perfectly accents her bitty berry design!
A show exclusive kit... we already have our order in... so cross your fingers for availability! Kit includes cross stitch chart, tin box with lid, strawberry emery pattern (we sell real emery to stuff this with!), detailed finishing instructions, and all of it is packaged in a cute little box! Please do not wait to order these...We don't know how long they will last!
Forever & Ever - A Celebration of Love! from With Thy Needle & Thread
This is a wedding or anniversary sampler! *In My heart -- forever and ever.* Initials are in the design and since 1949 is there as the date... it can be both!
Stitch count is 336 x 113 - so a whopping 21 x 7 on 32ct! BUTTTTT... Brenda also includes a cut-down version of the piece - just the right-side of it, with a new charting of the floral border. Very pretty!
New Treat Coming from Heart in Hand
Square Dance - This is going to be a set of 4 leaflets - featuring the months, all very small (40 X 40 stitch count) and cute. The first is coming now... other three publications will follow in the next couple of months - we'll auto-ship those for you if you'd like that option.
Cecelia is part of The Trilogy... and WOW... now I see who designed so many of the 'Secret Gardens' they did years ago! These are real colorful and cheerful... and will make an awesome set of stitched blocks! She is also offering a freebie border chart for this (513 x 55) in case you want to do them all in one lonnnnngggg row (which could be 32 x 3!). Individuals will take 1/2 a yard to complete... long skinny row will need a long 1/4 yard cut.
Rabbit Patchfrom Heart in Hand
It's coming in chart format. Love the long rabbit shape, and the dividing scallop shape, then the opposite direction of the carrot fabric!
Stay Bumble - Stay Bumble is a cute new small chart with wooden button that has a separate finishing kit offered for it for a limited time.
The finishing option includes the printed fabrics, Lady Dot trim and decorative pin.
Spread Kindness - Spread Kindness is another chart, and it comes with a bit of Weeks wool and a button embellishment.
Spring & Winter Whirligigs from Heart in Hand
A pair of small card-charts that fit the tops of Cecelia's Heartware bowls and her new Heartware Tarts!
The tarts are hand-made ceramic by the same artist that does her bowls (which are gorgeous by the way!) They're going to make lovely, weighted pin cushions all over the world!!! Charts are $6 each, Tarts will be $38.
Flower on a Hill - Flower on a Hill - Another cute design, your fabric choices will determine size of your finished stand-up!
The Cutest Buttons and Pins Coming from Italy by Puntini Puntini
Totally handmade and absolutely gorgeous, Puntini Puntini from Italy has several new polymer clay button and decorative pin sets for us! These are so beautifully made, we can't believe her great prices!!!
Teresa Kogut has several new punch needle and cross stitch designs...
My favorites for Cross Stitch are her two new angels - Rejoice (finishes approx 9 x 10) and Oh My Soul (measures approx 12 x 13!) These are challenging to stitch because all those color changes are REGULAR DMC floss -- no overdyeds! You get to change colors a million times to get that awesome, mottled look. Primitive Hen in Basket is a fun punch needle offering!
Several New Punch Needle patterns as well...
Sneak Peeks! from Rosewood Manor
Karen's Be Creative Cookbook
This is her 20th year... so she's compiled a cookbook of her past freebie charts... a bunch of border charts, and the best part... 75 of her favorite recipes! (Recipes are really only 'suggestions' for what else you could be doing instead of stitching... but why take that time?!)
She's laminated her spiral-bound book... added pages of specialty stitches, all kinds of stuff.
Four New Samplers from Rosewood Manor
Karen never does anything little! Here are 4 other new samplers available in 10 and 20-page booklets.
You can't see enough detail on these bitty pics... they are just teasers, aren't they? By The Numbers is NOT alphabets - it's NUMBERS! Float your mouse over each image so you know its name and then click them to see larger pics.
Bee Our Guest from Noteworthy Needle
Oh My Gosh, this is the ULTIMATE in being welcomed into a *HOME OF A STITCHER!* Noteworthy Needle has a cute little room sign - an information token - to let your guests know your Wi-fi password!
I love her network name in her promo pic - HIVE. The, the password - 14ct Aida! Only Janice could imagine this... and it's pretty cute! No pricing details yet, but it'll be a must!
Preview Designs from Samplers Not Forgotten

8 New Designs from Jeannette Douglas
Like a Butterfly Music Sewing Set
from Mani Di Donna
This is a charming stitched music box BOX by Simona! Your scissor case and fob match the tiny round box - which has a music box mechanism inside! Lift off the tufted (Weeks Dye Works Houndstooth Wool) top, to find a stitched inside base - about an inch down. The rest of the box is holding a hidden music box... but the little crank is poking through a hole you left on the backside of the round!
So unique! We're getting all the pieces and parts she is offering - pins, music box movement, fob beads and case handle... $60.00. 30ct Weeks Linen, flosses, wool and ball trims are all offered separately.
The Sewing Town Casket - A Special Market Exclusive!!!
from Mani Di Donna
Cute little cardboard-covered box, that front half-curved panel is a little drawer!!!! We think they MAKE THE CARDBOARD BOX out of separate paper pieces. Stitched on Weeks 32ct Cocoa with Weeks hand-dyeds, the set includes the charts, finishing instructions, striped cotton fabric lace, bone rings, black mourning pins, beads, pins and charms for the scissor fob.
From the pics, I am guessing this is about 5 x 7 x 4 high. I chose to get all the necessary pieces and parts and present this as a full set. Fabric and flosses available separately.
Summer Time Basket
from Mani Di Donna
I think this is about a 5-inch square box-tray that features summertime motifs stitched on all 4 sides. Worked on Weeks 32ct Beige linen, it features some mini buttons, and a darling crab and starfish pin set. The scallop trim is included with the pins.
We are offering the chart with pins and trim. Threads and separate linings (our Schnigglet cuts - $6 each - work for this) called for are Weeks Wools in Fawn and Mountain Mist. Choose components as you need them, start with the chart/trim and pins.
My American Dream
from Mani Di Donna
I can't tell much about this from the pics... You get a little oval box with eagle stitched on the lid - I see thread rings there.
No sizes... I see twinkle lights on here... I can't tell what the stitching is like yet. So... chart is $26... but I don't know what that entails! It's a surprise!
Miss Lucy Calcutt 1826
from Just Stitching Along
By Just Stitching Along, Lucy did a sampler in 1825 at age 8 (shown on our Samplers page) and this one the next year at age 9!
12-Page full color chart format, coded for silks or DMC cotton, it has 28 colors and measures 281 x 380 in stitch count.
MEOW & WOOF - The New Block Party Designs
from Hands On Design
We're getting two more of these super-cute square blocks of stitched fun! Cathy is releasing these that first week of March. Charts come with the bit of Week's hand-dyed wool you see on the cushion top... and we've made sure to include the Just Another Button Company WORD pin set.
Stitched on 28ct linen, both use Weeks hand-dyed flosses. These join the other 6 Block Parties we have had... they're still available, and we have shop models of them all!
You Had Me At Flamingos
from Hands On Design
This is a chart for a small pin-cushion pillow that features a back-pocket finishing, with a trio of small fobs - just as little design accents!
Weeks 32ct 'Linen' color of linen, Weeks hand-dyed flosses... you'll also need a pack of Lady Dot's Mingo colored rik rak for trim, and that darling little flamingo pin!
More Chocolate Bunnies
from Hands On Design
Hands On is releasing this darling design at the show... it features Sulky brand flosses... which we will also have available!
The Summer Night, Part 1 of the House on a Hill Series
from Hands On Design
This is the first in a 4-part series of Houses on Hills! Each chart has a design for a mattress style pin cushion and matching fob. This first one features a little Nantucket House and sports a darling JABCO pin set, too! There is a verse around the mattress edge: The summer night has a smile of light, and she sits on the sapphire throne.
We'll do an auto-ship for this set... charts and pins... I just love it!
Carrots and Cottontails Farm from Hands On Design - Featuring Hippity Hop!
Little Hippity Hop is only a bonus design in the first chart of Hands On Design's latest and upcoming Chalk series! I think it's the cutest little pin cushion, and I am featuring it here, because I don't want it to get lost in the shuffle of new stuff!!!!! Cathy's new chalk-art series will be full-sized charts celebrating holidays on the farm. Along with the main scene and 'sign' this year, we get pincushions as well.
Choose a gun metal gray fabric of your choice (There are many options from easy-on-the-eyes - 14ct hand-dyed to 36ct dark!!! You choose and do not be bullied by those who think their vision or their lamp is better than yours!) I am excited by that small bonus design - because I know I can get that done!!! (Felt leaves and orange buttons are on-your-own... but we have Weeks Schnigglets of wools and JABCO Sprinkles buttons that are perfect for that!) Series begins February 15. Auto-Ship will ship charts each time they release. Call us to discuss your fabric options!
Blue Flower Designs
A new designer... we LOVE these charts! Don't know a thing about them... just that we're getting them all!
Winter at Sugar Hill from Praiseworthy Stitches
Praiseworthy Stitches is releasing their annual Christmas or Winter City Scene - this year, it is a Winter Wonderland of snow, maple trees, and bubbling pots of maple syrup! Pam and Susan love doing these scenes... they are enchanting!
Winter at Sugar Hill finishes approx 19 x 12 on 32ct Picture This Plus Mirage hand-dyed linen. Stitched with hand-dyed flosses and garnished with bits of metallic, glass beads and some clay buttons... like all of its companions, this is full of 'busy-ness and winter fun!' Striking colors, cute design details, this joins quite a set of charming Christmas scenes! All the rest are on our Praiseworthy Stitches page... see which ones are your favorites!
Halloween Hop from Praiseworthy Stitches
This is a chart with a wide design - just like Santa Claus Lane. You can stitch the 15 x 5 picture, or make it into a round, weighted stand-up drum. Pam and Susan aren't showing us the other side of this little guy, but it's probably really cute!
Stitched on Picture This Plus's 32ct 'Ancient' linen with hand-dyed flosses, it features Mill Hill bead embellishments, silver metallic and 8 different Just Another Button Co buttons! They are offering finishing kits for THIS SHOW ONLY -- for the pattern debut. I'll bring some of those home, too.
Simple Gifts - Kindness from Praiseworthy Stitches
Another sampler in this set of designs... beautiful motifs, hand-dyed flosses, easy to change to match your room.
Offered as a chart, it measures 212 x 204 in stitch count.
Beachy Sentiments and West South East North from Rovaris of Italy!
Beach, Whale, Mermaid & Sea... being land-locked in Oklahoma reminds me of where I'd like to be! Rovaris is introducing 5 new designs... chart format.
I don't know sizes, threads or fabrics... but I like them... and they are coming home with us! If you want to pre-order any of these, please tell us in the comments section of your order, and let us know if you want fabric and threads with them.
Penelope's Posies from Lindy Stitches
This is a cute little pin cushion kit - A Market Exclusive - (meaning that it can only come home with shops that attended the trade show and bought these kits.) by Lindy Stitches. I LOVE the company name - I have to meet this woman - we share a common bond! A new designer, she's being mentored by several in the industry... I think this is darling!
Her Penelope's Posies kit features her chart, Lugana fabric, hand-dyed silk ribbon trim by Lady Dot Creates, a crown charm, cotton backing fabric and those 5 colorful little flower pins you see poking from the top! Super cute... the little kits are limited.
Bunny Lace Trio from Lindy Stitches
Probably a chart of these three designs that feature a way to highlight all your crazy overdyed threads.
Vintage County Mocha linen... get some trim and them dig through all your beloved random threads!
Stitch Frame Wraps from Stitchy Shelly
These are new! One of our friends, Shelly from TX is sewing pretty quilted covers for your WIPs (works-in-progress) that are already mounted on your scroll frame! You pull your needlework in and out of your stitching bag all the time... but it's never really protected from damage. Ms Shelly has the answer! Pretty wraps... each is hand-sewn with quilted fabrics... assorted batiks and cute prints... they feature ties and are large enough to wrap around the bars of your scroll frame to COVER and PROTECT your stitching!
Two sizes available - the small one is 13 inches wide, the large is 20. If your frame is smaller than 13 inches - fold over the edges, if you are working on something larger than 20 inches - at least this will cover most of your stitching area. Due to arrive the first week of March... Shelly is showing at the upcoming Market for the first time. We're so excited for her, and wanted to share her awesome products with you. So... Presenting Shelly and her awesome Wraps! Reservations now for March delivery!
Needle Rolls from Stitchy Shelly, Too!
More function from Shelly, these are 9-inch-ish square mats to hold threaded needles and beads. Sewn of pretty fabrics (you can't see that side, sorry!) Shelly has lined each with flannel. When not in use, fold this over to close - like a checkbook. You can see her labels in there - thread numbers on them - with the threaded needles. The flannel keeps the threads from falling out of the needles and tangling... and you get all your threaded needles sorted there... all ready for the next stitch!
Great for beads as well... spill a few on here... they'll stay put while you're using them in your project. Such a simple idea that makes stitching life so much easier!!! We are expecting our Stitchy Shelly Stuff right at Market time in a couple of weeks... she's let me introduce her things early, and we're thrilled!
Thread Keeps from The Primitive Hare
Aren't these kind of cool?
From Primitive Hare... don't know the size, don't know what they're made of, they're $16... and they caught my eye!
