Presenting Annual 2019 Santa
Even though Pam and Nancy have stopped designing their leaflets, they do design our favored Santas every year! This marks the 36th year! Same format, size colors and size... after 36 years, you know the drill.

MOST of the other Santas have been re-printed into leaflets of 4 assorted years... we have everything available that is currently in print... it is all pictured on our PS page and organized for you!



The Prairie Schooler Annual Santa Collection
Each year since 1984, Pam and Nancy have given us Santa doing all sorts of fun things. Every year, presented in single card format... each is the same size, and each uses the same DMC colors. By now -- after 34 years -- each has already been stitch a million times by stitchers all over the globe! As the individual cards have sold out since Prairie Schooler's retirement, there have been group re-prints done of various out-of-print Santas.
Below, you will find the SINGLE CHARTS that are still available... as well as the GROUP RE-PRINTS of the previously unavailable designs.
Hover your mouse over the images to see their names.

Mini Card Sets
Remember all these tiny promo-cards that Prairie Schooler has been presenting every season with new releases? If you're lucky, you've been able to collect many of them as little package stuffers in our mail orders through the years. I can't believe that very many of them are still around... but Nancy and Pam have FINALLY gathered some sets of them together to re-present to us!!!

Teeny little 2 x 3 full color cards of designs that always matched and complimented their season's new releases... we have three sets of 10 cards each! Little historical archives of Prairie Schooler releases... these all finish into 2 x 2 or 2 x 3 designs...and have NEVER been published in any of PS's original leaflets. Each was introduced as a Promotional Card to highlight that season's set of releases.

Here are pics of all three collections: Set A - Farmer's Market, Set B - Prairie Seasons and Set C - Garden Samplers. Don't bother to try to sift through all your free charts... just get all three of these packs, and life will immediately get less complicated! Love 'em!


Prairie Schooler's Little Set *E* Black Crow Mini Cards -- click to see more Little Set *E* Black Crow Mini Cards
Prairie Schooler has sent a 5th set (Set E) of small promotional cards (10 cards in the set) that she publishes when leaflets are printed. One Promo card per leaflet -- these are small, companion designs to their book.

We have 4 other sets... so this makes 50 of these tiny cards to gather and collect. These cards cover books 180 through 189, stitch counts are generally 30 to 40 in size -- perfect for ornaments!


Set F Ding Ding Mini Cards from Prairie Schooler -- click to see more Set F Ding Ding Mini Cards
Do you know about these little cards by Prairie Schooler? The teeny little 2-1/2 x 4-1/2 cards they always did promo-charts on when they released new books? Here is Set F - new to us! (Sets A, B, C, & E are still available and pictured on our PS pages. NO Set D anymore!) Little Set F went with books #172 through #199... and it includes three small 37 x 37 stitch count Christmas Ornaments that never were associated with any of their books!

ALWAYS cute things... ANY of these are perfect for pin-cushion exchange projects, fobs, ornaments, nametags, whatever you want!!! Each set consists of 10 small cards with pretty pic on the front, chart on the back.

The Latest Reprints by Prairie Schooler
These are out-of-print favorites that are back by popular demand. The original leaflets were printed on heavy card stock. Pam and Nancy are part of the official re-release of these designs, but are now presenting them on regular-weight paper. We occasionally get calls about that... but we'd rather have those cute designs on PAPER than NOTHING at all! Collect, Enjoy and Stitch!!!
  • #166 Snowy Nights - A set of 9 charming ornaments.
  • #180 All Hallows Eve - such a scary little scene!

Always fun designs, that Hocus Pocus really IS a little scary! Actually, we still have a few of the cardboard/original copies of #197 in stock if you are a purist and want those instead of the new re-print!

New Reprints
from The Prairie Schooler

#146 March Daffodils Reprint from  Prairie Schooler -- click to see more

#146 March Daffodils
This is the re-print of Prairie Schooler's March month of their 12-month series.

It was the first in that (unplanned) set, and never originally CALLED March - it was simply titled *Daffodils* (which caused confusion for years... but then it went out of print!) So, enjoy once again!


Happy Christmas - Reprint of book #190 from Prairie Schooler -- click to see more
Happy Christmas - Reprint of book #190
Here's a chart - originally published in 2013 - that features a sleepy little village on Christmas Eve. Happy Christmas - Santa's greeting trailing behind his sleigh - choose a black or dark gunmetal gray fabric to accent the evening.

I like the fact that all the windows are dark... everyone is fast asleep... and the smoke is gently curling up from all the chimneys... very cozy. Anyway, stitch the ornaments or just the top row of the piece... whatever you have time for!


#198 Christmas Tree Farm from  Prairie Schooler -- click to see more #59 Nutcrackers from  Prairie Schooler -- click to see more
New Reprints
  • #59 Nutcrackers was originally published in 1996. These make cute stand-ups if you put them on 18ct linen and use fun threads, because they stand about 8 inches tall!

  • #143 Button Up - Originally published in 2007, this is a cute medley of bitty designs you could make into ornaments or the wintery 9-patch as shown! Only #147 Old McDonald had this similar design format.

Join them in a long line to make one of those draft-stoppers for a windowsill. Make them into little individual stand-up blocks. ORRRRR... just get the charts, and enjoy looking at them once in a while... 'planning for the future!'

#89 Village Green from  Prairie Schooler -- click to see more
The Newest Prairie Schooler Re-Print -- #193 Where There Are Bees
You might have missed this leaflet when Prairie Schooler released it in 2013. It was one of their last 10 publications... and it didn't last very long.

Finally re-printed, you have a second chance for a while to gather this cute pattern! Main sampler measures approx 8-1/x x 6-1/2 on 32ct. DMC flosses on ONLY 926, 3772, 3828 and 3787!


#89 Village Green from  Prairie Schooler -- click to see more #13 A Prairie Year Reprint from Prairie Schooler -- click to see more #149 November Reprint from  Prairie Schooler -- click to see more
The Latest New Second Chances
A trio of re-printed designs!
  • #89 Village Green -- Prairie Schooler's #89 Village Green is Back in Print!
    We have loved this pattern forever!!! Book #89 is now available again. Our models from years ago are still on the shop walls... approx 6 x 12 in size, they are CHARMING!
  • #13 A Prairie Year -- This is from 1986! We had shop models of all of these at one time... what a blast from the past! Each design measures approx 50 stitches square -- so 3 inches square on 32ct. Classics!
  • #149 November -- Part of the 12 months series of leaflets... this was originally published in 2008. If you will notice, all the leaflets in this 'months' series all follow the same design format, so they are fun to display together. (It's a constant battle to keep all these in print. Right now, Daffodils which was the March issue is out of print. I imagine it will come around again. Just a reminder to collect these designs AS YOU CAN! Availability seems to be very fleeting!

1995 Prairie Fairie from  Prairie Schooler -- click to see more
The Little Prairie Fairies
These are the original cards from 1994 & 1995. When you get them, don't be surprised to see that the paper is yellowed with age! (Missing from the collection is 1996 -- don't pay too much for it on E-Bay! Your set is cute without it!)
  • Presented in the original small card format, the Prairie Fairy (1994) rides on the wings of a blackbird and scatters sunflower seeds over open fields the night of the first full moon of the summer.
  • In her patchwork dress and pin cushion hat, (1995) she completes all those (whose?!) unfinished projects with the needle and thread she always carries with her.
Each finishes about 3 x 4.



#79 Christmas Village Reprint from  Prairie Schooler -- click to see more #167 To All A Good Night Reprint from  Prairie Schooler -- click to see more Barnyard Christmas #94 Reprint from  Prairie Schooler -- click to see more
Four *New-Past- Favorites*
  • #79 Christmas Village - Originally published in 1999, the whole thing measures approx 9-1/2 x 12-1/2 on 36ct. Let your eye divide this up -- the upper left house with woods, another section is the upper right corner of just two houses and the reindeer. The bottom row of three houses is fine by itself, and any of the houses are neat with just one horse and sled. Look at it with smaller goals in mind of you don't want the entire design!
  • Barnyard Christmas #94 -- From 2001, these were never 'Christmassy' to me... but the animals are cute, and do make special ornaments for anyone who raises or loves them!
  • #167 To All A Good Night - This one is quite new -- 2010! Lots of smaller motifs in this to make ornaments!

Three More Past Favorites Have Returned!
88 Old World Santas II Reprint from  Prairie Schooler -- click to see more 80 Old World Santas Reprint from  Prairie Schooler -- click to see more 133 Winter Wind Reprint from  Prairie Schooler -- click to see more
  • Winter Wind - #133
  • published in 2006, this is one of the seasonal samplers that follows the same format as 132, 140, 141 and 148 -- all main pieces with a small 'panel' that features 4 OTHER designs to interchange into your sampler - or just make in to ornaments!
    Everything in these leaflets is the same size, so you could even take the smaller ornament designs from each book and make a composite of THOSE! Winter Wind reads: The birds are gone, the ground is white, the winds are wild they chill and bite! Such a favorite from 12 years ago!
  • Old World Santas I and II - Books 80 and 88 from 1999 and 2000. All are about 35 x 60 in stitch count, this is a set of 16 different Santas. On 36ct they are only 2 x 3 - small enough to group onto a wreath, make into a table runner, stitch on paper for ornaments, stitch as a long and skinny hanging... you figure it out!

158 Christmas Eve from  Prairie Schooler -- click to see more
#83 Winter Samplers
The latest Reprint by Prairie Schooler... this is a trio of mono-chromatic pieces that was originally published in 2000. (I don't remember these!!!!!!) :(

They measure approx 5 x 11 on 32ct, and are stitched in just 8 colors of DMC! Simple and calming.
Note: #158 Christmas Eve is also now reprinted... scroll down to find it.



Two More Reprints from The Prairie Schooler... Definitely Christmas in July!
Still Life - click to see more New World Sampler - click to see more Two 'Oldie Moldies' from the Gals... reprinted just in case you missed them the first time around!!!
  • #34 - New World Sampler -- Originally published (probably Summer) in 1992, this delightful sea-sampler is full of sailing ships and sea life! You get two different project layouts in here... you can stitch whichever one floats YOUR boat!!!
  • #41 - Still Life -- Originally published (probably Spring) in 1993, this is a gorgeous set of 40 x 50 sized designs -- perfect for pin cushions. Wouldn't they be stunning all together in a big bowl??? Regular DMC flosses, the challenge is getting a black fabric that you can SEE... but getting it small enough for your cushions to be enchanting! Even on 18ct Aida each is less than 3 x 3 though!!!

Harvest Time - click to see more
#93 Harvest Time
Prairie Schooler's Book #93 - Harvest Time -- has been re-printed due to popular demand! This was one of our all-time favorite leaflets for years and years. We had the village and the turkey stitched over one as shop models, and I took them home long ago because I couldn't part with them! Now I have to bring them back to the shop!!!

Originally published in 2001, each piece measures 178 x 75 - approx 5 x 11 on 32ct. If you do them on 28ct Lugana (which is actually very easy to do) they will measure an enchanting 6 x 2-3/4! Coded for regular DMC floss.


Prairie Schooler's Book #40 Band Samplers - click to see more
#40 Band Samplers, Another New Re-Print
Originally published in 1993 this is book #40. I think it's facinating to realize how many years ago some of these were published, and to look at them today, and know they are STILL awesome designs!

A trio of pieces -- mesuring approx 6 x 15... each offers neat words of wisdom! *Plant your seeds in a row, one to eat and one to sow.* *Content lodges oftener in cottages than palaces.* *Tall oaks from little acorns grow,* Each one of these is charming... timeless.



Prairie Schooler's Book #44 - Birds & Berries -- click to see more Prairie Schooler's Book #24 - Prairie Birds -- click to see more Prairie Schooler's Book #113 - V*W*X -- click to see more

  • #113 V*W*X -- Part of the famous alphabet... we all loved the X Is for Cross Stitch!!! Originally published in 2004.

Prairie Schooler's Book #25 - Up On The Housetop -- click to see more Prairie Schooler's Book #20 - St Nicholas -- click to see more More Reprints from Prairie Schooler!
Oh what a treat these two new re-prints are!!!!!
  • Book #20 - St Nicholas This was originally published in 1988!!! Available again, we LOVED this book the first time around! We used to stitch these little guys over ONE thread for teeny-tiny ornaments and fobs. With stitch counts of 45 x 54, they are like 1-1/2 x 2 over one of 28ct. They are also fun to work on larger fabrics. Try the 18ct linen Shepherd's Bush uses on their stockings -- choose #5 Pearl cottons or the fun Rainbow Gallery specialty threads -- they finish 9 x 7 -- and make fantastic block stand-ups! All eight coordinating Santas are featured in this leaflet!
  • Book #25 - Up On The Housetop Another past favorite... I had taken the shop model home years ago to use in my personal Christmas decorating... and now I have to bring it back to the shop! SUPER popular years ago, this first appeared for Christmas in 1989. Love Santa in the sleigh -- 4 x 8 on 18/36ct -- (our model is over one thread -- super cute.) and you can stitch the three houses and make stand-up cubes out of them!

  • #141 Thanksgiving Comes Again -- From 2007, a VERY popular design... this is part of a huge set of Pam and Nancy's designs with that 4-patch format and the larger sampler. If you look through your books, you'll find SEVERAL of the different seasons in that 4-patch style, and TONS more samplers to match the main one. Then, notice the urn of flowers in there... it is the same size as all the OTHER corner motifs in all the rest of the matching samplers... so you could make a set of JUST THOSE smaller designs as well! Pam and Nancy always did a really good job continuing matching designs in subsequent publications!

Prairie Schooler's #57 Pumpkins -- click to see more Prairie Schooler's #165 Sweeping Cobwebs -- click to see more New Re-Prints from The Prairie Schooler!
More Treats this week -- much less sugar in these than the Trick or Treat Candy in your future!!!!!
  • #57 Pumpkins -- Wow... back from 1996, you have six charming designs to stitch and finish however you like -- but the stuffed pumpkins sure are cute! Originally stitched on Cognac linen... just find something neat and orang-y... there are so many more choices now than we had in 1996!

    Weeks Havana, Pumpkin, Carrot... all the neat specialty hand-dyeds... remember pumpkins come in all sorts of different colors -- so think outside the box a little!

  • #165 Sweeping Cobwebs -- Originally published in 2010, you get those 6 ornaments as well as the bigger piece.

We are THRILLED to be able to offer, once again, two past favorites of Prairie Schooler's! We had shop models from these two books that I brought home to decorate my house every Fall... and now I have to bring them back to the shop!!!
  • #132 Autumn Leaves -- Individual ornaments, that 4-square Autumn piece that is companioned in SEVERAL other PS books (they have all the seasons like this and a few holidays, I think), and the main sampler -- see how the ornaments can fit into the large sampler!
    *Come said the wind to the leaves one day, come o'er the meadows and we will play. Put on your coats of scarlet and gold for Autumn is here and days grow cold.* One of Prairie Schoolers most favored publications, this is back in print!
  • #140 Pumpkin Patch -- Another past favorite, Here is another 4-patch design that makes individual ornaments, and they also interchange in the larger sampler.
    *See the yellow pumpkin fat and round growing in a patch on the ground. It will make a Jack-O-Lantern with two big eyes, or maybe I will bake it into 2 fat pies!* We've always loved the charming farmhouse and pukpkin patch scene at the bottom of this!

Prairie Schooler's #201 Bump in the Night Leaflet -- click to see more Prairie Schooler's #200 Witching Hour Leaflet -- click to see more
Witching Hour * Bump in the Night

Prairie Schooler has three new leaflets -- ALL of them are really cool... and are packed with fun design elements.
  • #200 Witching Hour has trees that are talking to each other...a cute cat barely holding onto his broom in the sky... and an eerie color scheme of black, brown, gray and orange. The leaflet contains two smaller designs that mimic the panels in the other two new releases... smaller 30 x 50 blocks.
  • #201 Bump in the Night has that witch on the left, but can your eye see the 7 same-sized panels in the rest of the design? Then, the two bonus designs that are the same size? You can mix them around in your final stitched piece!

Prairie Schooler's Night Flight -- click to see more Night Flight
Another of Prairie Schooler's Halloween Card designs, I love this one! It seems to go with Witching Hour... but not exactly the same. Notice the 13 and 31s in the corners?

I like the repeating lines in the shadows of the sky and the lines of the fences. Just a fun little thing!


The 2014 Fall Releases...

Prairie Schooler's #196 Nevermore -- click to see more Prairie Schooler's #197 Hocus Pocus -- click to see more Prairie Schooler's #199 The Night Before Christmas -- click to see more
  • #196 Nevermore -- A very spooky-flavored haunted mansion and graveyard scene. The relatives are buried in the front yard, the Ouija Board hands down there at the bottom can't wait to deal your fate... and the moons and bat at the top are just standing by to haunt and swoop down to get you!!!
  • #197 Hocus Pocus -- Ooohhh, here are 11 ornaments to join the other two from #196 to make a set of 13 creepy pieces! All 47 x 31 in size... arrange them any way you like... very intense!
  • #199 The Night Before Christmas -- This is a neat coverlet-inspired Quaker-feeling piece. I love how the reindeer seem to follow the angle of the medallions right up into the sky! Each of the side medallions is cut off in the main piece, but you'll be treated to their entire charts on the back cover of the leaflet. They each measure approx 50 x 50 stitches.


Prairie Schooler's Miss Fortune -- click to see more Miss Fortune
The 4th small card with a Halloween theme, Miss Fortune joins *Knock, Knock*, *Whoo's There?* and *Double, double.* The same format as the annual Santa cards -- we now have 4 in this set.

  • Prairie Schooler's #189 Boo Moon Leaflet -- click to see more Halloween is right around the corner -- according to these new releases!
    Classic Prairie Schooler style, I think my favorite is Trick or Treat!


    #189 Boo Moon is a collection of 9 different ornaments stitched in only 3 colors of DMC floss -- 3371, 921 and 729. I love the little skeleton with the keys, and check out that little bat that is hanging upside down!!!

    Double, Double
    The third card in PS's now-a-series Halloween Cards, Double joins *Knock Knock* and *Who's There?* Lizzards and skulls, Cats and snakes, witches and bats... check out the flowing eyeball that is being added to the brew!!! (There are one too many cooks in this kitchen!)

    Finishing approx 5 x 6 on 32ct -- too cute!

    New From The Prairie Schooler!
    We're into Fables & Tales & Children's Rhymes. Prairie Schooler has released 4 new leaflets with classic storybook themes. The #185 Three Pigs and #186 Little Red Riding Hood are definitely a design pair - same sized main designs and smaller 'take-outs', as well as the same three colors of DMC floss -- 304, 640 and 3371.

    #187 Fables and Tales offers 5 more designs -- a little more color in their 3 x 4 design area... cute for a classroom or library setting! #184 Vintage Eggs offers simple Springtime designs -- it is the fifth in PS's Collection of small Spring designs done on black. Check out #178 Bunnies, #169 Folk Eggs, #163 Signs of Spring and #153 Welcome Spring! Darling companion designs in those leaflets!!!

    Winter 2012's New Releases!
    Treats from Prairie Schooler - #176 August and #177 January round out their series of THE MONTH leaflets! All 12 have featured the same design style... a square companion piece to the larger main sampler... and all the larger pieces each feature a smaller block pic in them. (Notice the snowman block in the upper lefthand corner of January?) All 12 months have been tunning... and *because* they have all been the same sizes, you can mix and match the motifs in them, or do something like stitching all the take-out blocks in a medley! All are still available and on our web pages -- EXCEPT December -- which has been sold out for almost 2 years. (Nancy is kicking around thoughts to fix that issue... but no answers yet.) Scroll down through the sections below to collect all those leaflets in the Monthly series!

    Also in this set of releases is #178 Bunnies and #179 3 Billy Goats Gruff. Bunnies can be worked on the pictured black, but if that is too hard for you to see, change the bunny color to gray and do them on a lighter color! Very Spring-y! The 3 Billy Goats is certainly a different subject than we're used to seeing... but what a fun piece to start a conversation over! All 4 leaflets use good old DMC floss to stitch these charming Prairie Schooler Classics!

    Prairie Schooler has sent new releases! These two designs are NEW offerings... they are printed in the same single card format as the annual Santas... and Nancy told me they were going to be a new series.

    Definitely companions to #180 All Hallows Eve, they are smaller designs stitched in only DMC #898, 310 and 921!

    New Prairie Schooler Releases
    Halloween into Christmas -- even though we haven't had Summer yet -- I guess it IS time to start thinking about the Fall and Winter Holidays!
  • #180 All Hallows Eve features a haunted mansion and all its unwelcome guests in the front yard. There are two grave stone charts on the back cover -- not pictured on the front of the leaflet -- one reads 'RIP', the other -- 'Oops!'
  • #181 Heads Up has 8 small ornament designs, including a companion tombstone that reads 'Uh oh!'
  • #182 Reindeer Roundup and #183 O Christmas Tree take us into Christmas with Santa in both pieces. The Tree ornaments are neat -- triangular shaped -- notice the 12 Days of Christmas are worked into just 4 of them! The leaflet back cover pic shows these finished at little stand-ups poked into wooden spool stands -- mini trees!

    Christmas Favorites; September; Cats, Bats & Witches; and Santa's Night Prairie Schooler's newest releases... as always, you need them all!! #172 Christmas Favorites features 9 small ornament designs each with a bit of Blackwork detailing around their edges.

(December is sold out, January is yet to come, August too.)

    An awesome collection of monthly designs, each features designs that are the same size, so you can mix and match them. #174 Cats, Bats & Witches has that neat main sampler along with the 4-patch of smaller Halloween designs -- check out your older books -- these are a companion to several I cannot offer you -- because they are out of print!

    New Arrivals from Prairie Schooler
    Four new leaflets are here... full of PS Personality! #168 MAY is the continuation of their monthly series... January, March, August and September haven't been published yet, February, April, May, June, July, October and November are currently available, and December is already out of print! Same design formats in this series... all the little blocks are interchangeable between the months!

    #169 Folk Eggs is a new look for PS... Cute designs... if you can't get past the black fabric, think about Lambswool instead!
    #170 As The Crow Flies features an awesome farming village scene, great colors, a classic Prairie Schooler design!
    #171 Sunny Days features a small set of 8 ornaments... each sports a summery motif, and is surrounded with bits of coordinating lackwork. I love the little fishies around the lighthouse and crab! All are single leaflets, all call for DMC floss, no overdyeds.


    Prairie Schooler's 164 October -- click to see more Prairie Schooler's 167 And To All A Good Night -- click to see more
    Fall, Halloween, Winter & Christmas...
    Presenting Prairie Schooler's Fall 2010 Releases! I just LOVE 'em ALL!
    #164 October is the 6th month designed so far... they are not being released in any kind of organized order, so we have an auto-ship for these! All the formats for each month are the same... so you can change the little panel in the upper left-hand corner of the sampler with any block from the other piece... AND all the other pieces from all the other months can be mixed and matched, as well!
    #167 And To All A Good Night features 2 charming Christmas pieces! Check out the little reindeer stamps!

    Prairie Schooler New Releases!
    #160 February, #161 June, #162 Tortoise & The Hare and #163 Signs of Spring are all new leaflets by Prairie Schooler! February and June are the 5th and 6th in their on-going set of month-samplers -- each features that box in the upper corner, that is interchangeable with all the blocks in the companion piece -- and fits with all the REST of the month series!

    Check those out -- they are really cool. I think my favorite of this set of 4 leaflets is the Tortoise & The Hare! I love those rabbits and turtles everywhere!!! Signs of Spring is a set of animals, all framed Blackwork borders! As always, a great release of designs. We are offering an auto-ship (ie... auto-collect!) on those monthly titles... otherwise it's too easy to miss one in the set!

    Prairie Schooler has released more new leaflets... 1 Christmas, 1 Fall and 1 Halloween in theme... they are all awesome!
    • #157 Holly Days features 8 ornament-sized snowmen and Santas... sleds, cookies, reindeer and snowmen all tucked in with them! Bonus design on the back cover is a snowman face!
    • #159 Fall Fields is a medley of 8 forest animals -- I think the squirrel and turkey are my favorites... but there is a Darling Barn Owl as the bonus chart on the leaflet's back cover... and he's just the cutest!
    • #156 Boo To You has 8 scary creatures gracing its cover -- very vintage and retro in feel.
    Eveything is just darling... a really good release for the Fall of 2009!!!


    2008 Santa from The Prairie Schooler - click to see more 2008 Santa
    For the 25TH YEAR IN A ROW... Prairie Schooler has designed a classic Santa, always on the single card, always the same 4 x 3-ish, always following the same color scheme... so that by now, you have a *fantastic* set!!! Stitch them large or small, pillow or afghan, fob or ornament... we've seen everything over the years!!! Santa 2008 has presents in his sack, a sled, skinny tree, and blowing scarf. Just classic, this year!
