***Better here than lost in your chair!***
Several nice options of needles... you use what YOU like best for your task. Check our Needles page for lots of choices.
Make sure the eye of the needle doesn't pinch your thread too much and damage it. Get a large enough eye size.

For Cross Stitch, the eye of the needle is supposed to be large enough to create the space for your thread to pass through the fabric without it dragging too much and causing damage.
Still unsure about size you need? Just ask us and we can choose for you!


Our Fabulous Fabric Wall
We carry a wonderful selection of cross stitch fabrics. Shelves and shelves of Linen, Aida, Heatherfield, Lugana, Klostern, Tula, Banding, Afghans -- I could go on and on...!

And now, we've add the wonderful Hand-dyed fabrics from Weeks Dye Works! Write them in below, or order them by the fat quarter on our Weeks page.

We sell everything 2 different ways. We can custom cut any size you need... we'll figure that out if you'd like us to... and price the piece by the square inch. We have no additional cutting fees for individual pieces! Or, you may purchase any of the fabrics in larger pieces by the yard. A favorite is a "Fat Quarter" size. It's 18" wide, up to the fold on the bolt -- usually 18X27 -- and is one fourth the yard price. You may also have one-half yard pieces -- usually 18X54 -- or entire yards, if you're a busy stitcher!

Whatever you need, we probably have it... or something equally as wonderful. Sometimes a fabric called for is not as easy to work with as another for you, so we can help with substitutions, too! Just a couple of pics to show you the "Great Wall of Fabric!"

Use the fill-in box below to tell us just what you'd like!

Jot down your thoughts in the Comments Box of your order... and we'll do our best! Or give us a call, and we'll walk out to the wall and help you pick something special right over the phone!


#29 Leaf Sprinkles from JABCO #24 Burgundy Sprinkles from JABCO #18 Mudslide Sprinkles from JABCO #06 Lemon Drop Sprinkles from JABCO SPRINKLES! from Just Another Button Company
These are delightful little packages filled with at least 35 tiny hand-dyed buttons that coordinate with each other and your DMC and hand-dyed embroidery flosses. Tiny hearts, stars, flowers, circles, triangles and squares.... none of them are large in size, but HUGE in cuteness and decorative impact! The JABCO team has organized 35 different color-packs, and I must say, they are a treat to see all together! Some packs are more mono-chromatic than others... I think you'll be able to see what I mean in our pics.

Divided into three color categories, Fresh Colors, Neutral Colors and Organic Colors... I have listed MY thoughts (in parenthesis) on DMC color matches to each pack. After you've determined the DMC colorway, it'll be easy to match again to your hand-dyeds. Use these little guys to *SPRINKLE* and garnish pin cushions or sewing cases, or ANYTHING cute that needs a little button!!!!

Luscious Cotton Velveteens
Handyed
by Lady Dot Creates
This is a gorgeous selection of hand-dyed cotton velveteen that is wonderful to use for pin cushion and pillow finishing. Offered in 10 x 18 cuts (each is torn instead of being cut) so you have the straight grain of the fabric.

Good heavy hand, when you use crushed walnut shells or something heavy inside your smalls, you will really like the way this heavier finishing fabric feels. Lightweight calico is simply too thin. 16 yummy colors so far!

Lady Dot has dyed a wonderful array of colors -- the names are delightful and descriptive -- and you'll love how well it covers the edges of your pin cushions and needlework smalls. Packaged in 3-yard lengths... we just love it ALL!

Feast your eyes and fingers on this scrumptious collection of hand-dyed wool fabrics! 40 different colors, offered in solid, herringbone or houndstooth patterns... we have 120 different choices to tempt you!

Offered in 1/4-yard chunks measuring approx 15 x 25 each, the hand-dying gives each piece it's own individual look. Primitive-looking stains sometimes, and lots of subtle shading for extra texture and interest.

Rug Hookers are slicing this up for rugs, Punch Needlers are mounting their punched projects on this -- like a mat board idea, Quilters are using this in soft-sculpture and penny rugs, cross stitchers are using this to embellish projects like buttons would... and everybody is using it to finish and back projects!

DMC Actual-Swatch Color Cards - click to see 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!


Acid Free Tissue Paper - click to see more Acid Free Tissue Paper
Ask any historian, librarian or preservationist... sun, air, chemicals and all the elements in our air are the worst enemies for keeping our needlework looking young, fresh, clean and not discolored. Kreinik has packaged 12- 20 x 30 sheets of acid-free tissue paper and recommend that we use it to store and preserve our needlework.

Unbuffered, museum quality, it prevents tarnishing and oxidation (changing colors), and will not scratch or mar your projects. Works to tuck between your fabrics, wrap silver charms and scissors... and preserve the original colors in samplers and finished pieces that you have (sinfully!) hidden away in your drawers!!!!!

This is a fantastic color 4 page printed 'card' of the entire line of Mill Hill Beads! Three pages of beads -- which someone has sewn onto fabric! -- all photographed in full color and grouped into color family order, and labeled as to color number. All the different sizes and shapes are pictured, as well as a table that tells you package size availability, and bead count!!! (We've always wanted to know how many beads are really in those little packs, but never had the patience to count them all!) Also included is a Personal Bead Inventory Sheet, so you can check off what you own, and what you need next! Best of all... this whole thing is only .50! (So pick up a bunch: one to save, one to carry around in your stitching bag, a few for friends... just don't order only one and nothing else, because the shipping will be more than the sheets!)

We just love helping you find exactly what you're looking for!!!
