Cross Eyed Cricket
We welcome Vicki Hastings of The Cross Eyed Cricket
June 2nd and 3rd, 2023

Vicki Hastings has been the creator of all the hundreds of Cross Eyed Cricket Designs that you have known and loved for almost 40 years! She and I met at the first trade show for both of us, in September of 1983... and have been friends in the industry ever since then. She has delightful things - so her 350+ leaflets are her resume! She doesn't travel much, so we are thrilled that she agreed to come spend two days with us in our She Shed! She'll present us something wonderful and exclusive to our event... which is limited to 45 attendees. Our chairs are comfy, the lighting is great, group is small and intimate. I bet you own several of Cross Eyed Cricket's leaflets - this may be your only chance to finally meet Vicki and spend a few days with her.

Class will start at 11 on Friday, June 2nd we'll go till we're ready to stop for the day - 4 or 5-ish pm. Saturday the 3rd, we'll enjoy the day till 4-ish. Lunches are on your own, as our shopping center corner has 13 different restaurant choices!
Fee is $200... $50 due at registration, which is open now. Balance is due April 2nd. Cancellations before April 2 receive funds paid less $50. Cancellations after April 2 may receive kits with no refunds, or partial refund (TBA) if we can sell your space.

Kimberly was JUST here for our Grand Summer Stitching Event but the party sold out so fast that we've re-booked her to come back this next year! Pictured here is Hummingbird's Garden - it WILL NOT BE your project in 2023. I put it here to show you the beautiful exclusive sampler she just did for us... it's kind of like a 'serving suggestion!' It's not available, but you'll get something just as wonderful from her class! Gorgeous florals, pin cushions and samplers - our Samplers Not Forgotten page will show you lots of Kimberly's offerings.

Your Friday/Saturday She Shed class with Kimberly is limited to 45. The event fee of $250 includes all the projects, yummy snacks and a few door prizes and favors... along with a lot of stitching fun. Meals are on your own - our 13 restaurants within walking distance of the shop do not disappoint!

Linda does the cross stitch design, Miranda does the linen, threads and wools.

Again, class is limited to 45. Again, the $250 fee includes all your class materials, yummy snacks and drinks, fun prizes and favors... and two full days of stitching and fun! Don't know if the shopping center will have more restaurants leased by next year... but our 13 do just fine for us!

AMA Waterways
Announcing Fairytales & Chocolate: The Enchanting Rhine
May 15th - 29th, 2024

We are thrilled to announce The Silver Needle's next European River Cruise we are hosting with Jeannette Douglas Designs! Judy Bradford, Our Awesome Trip Lady, has worked magic for us on this next trip - an enchanting cruise down the Rhine River in May of 2024. A different time of year for our Ama Waterways trips (instead of the Christmas Markets), we will be chartering the entire Ama Serena ship for our group. Beginning in Switzerland with incredible scenery and some of the world's best chocolate, Judy promises we'll venture down the Rhine past the castles and vistas that inspired fairy tales, before we finish with a Dutch flair in Amsterdam.

We'll be visiting Zurich, Lucerne, Basel, Riquewihr, (you can 'blow off!' this charming town that day to do a hike through the Black Forest if you want! - it's a option!), Strasbourg, Rudesheim and Heidelberg, The Rhine Gorge (where all the famous castles are) , Cologne, and finally finish in Amsterdam. Jeannette will have a lovely stitched project especially for us as our trip momento, and we'll have a few stitching 'classes' and a Magic By Mona finishing 'class' as well. (NOT boring classes in a windowless room - we'll be up in main lounge area cruising past gorgeous scenery the whole time!)

We welcome stitchers and non-stitchers alike. You can travel alone or bring a friend or relative. There are usually a good dozen spouses along... a couple of knitters... but since it is our own private group... you'll be happy and welcome no matter what! An added bonus: we've arranged for a private tour of the Zweigart Factory - the magical place cross stitch fabric comes from! It's an entire day-trip-of-a-lifetime!

Judy plans both pre and post cruise excursions in Switzerland and Netherlands - optional to you. All kinds of stuff is included in the trip - all sorts of cabin and pricing options. You can use airline travel miles... she can book air or you can do it... anything is possible. We love taking these trips with Jeannette and Judy... truly bucket-list trips. You have a good year to think about it... but don't take that long to decide. Contact Judy Bradford at or call 866-559-4449. Might be a day or two before she gets back to you... but she's great, and will take fantastic care of you! Call us at the shop if you have questions... we love to 'dish' about our trips!
