Michelle Ink Designs
Presenting Fern Ridge and Michelle Ink's Beading and Silver Retreat
Peyote Beading and Silver Casting
April 26th-27th, 2024
Spooky Needle Case and fob
Wow, this is going to be a really fun and busy retreat! Pat and Peggy of Fern Ridge have dreamed up Peyote Beaded needle cases - you will be getting 4 of them - to nestle in a specially-made box by Joseph's Workshop. Michelle is bringing her precious metals silver clay and molds... and you will be making the topping medallion for that box, and a few other tiny trinkets.

Choose from a Halloween theme or floral - you'll get one set with class, and can purchase the other set if you want. Both design sets include one of Fern Ridge's signature beaded scissor fobs to match!

Date of class, and both Artist's names are engraved on the bottom, and identified needle sizes for your vials inside the box... Michelle has tons of molds for her clay - so if you want a different topping treatment - you can do that too!
Floral Needle Case and fob
Your Friday/Saturday class in our She Shed is limited to 40 people. The event fee of $275 includes all the projects, yummy snacks and a few door prizes and favors... along with a lot of beading and casting fun. Meals are on your own; our 13 restaurants within walking distance will not disappoint!

$50 Due at registration. Balance is due February 26th, 2024. Cancellations before Feb 26 receive funds paid less $50. Cancellations after Feb 26 may receive kits with no refunds... or partial (TBA) refund if we can fill your space.

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! Judy's Cell # is: 519-841-7245.

Needlework Press Stacy Nash Designs
Announcing our Grand Summer Stitching Event for 2024
We Welcome Stacy Nash and Needlework Press's Vickie Jennett
July 11, 12 & 13th, 2024

Come spend a few days - or the whole week - with us and enjoy Stacy Nash and Vickie Jennett! I don't know what our projects will be yet... but both ladies are excited to be presenting! Officially, our Summer Event begins with Happy Hour at 4:45pm on Thursday, July 11th. BUTTTT... Our She Shed opens that Monday, July 8th for the Early Birds - as a Stitch Lounge. Designers arrive Wednesday - the same day we begin optional Finishing classes by our own Mona. Finishing classes continue Thursday. Everything moves from the She Shed over to our Main Stitching Room... for that Happy Hour Thursday, followed by dinner and Designer Make-it/Take-it presentations.

The Event includes Thursday Evening's dinner and all the festivities, both all day classes and their kits by both designers, yummy lunches served Friday and Saturday, door prizes, and a silent auction fundraiser/pin cushion exchange to raise money for a local charity - Happy Hands. (2023's Event raised $6000!)

Mona's Wednesday and Thursday classes are additional and optional. There are numerous hotel options very close to the shop, but more and more of our ladies are choosing Air B & B's as a hotel alternative!

Total Fee is $395 - which includes all the projects, meals and snacks... tons of stuff.

Celebrity Eclipse
Join The Silver Needle and Jeannette Douglas Designs aboard the Celebrity Eclipse
September 19th - 30th, 2024!

This is our THIRD 'WIP SHIP TRIP' - A 'works-in-progress' trip while we cruise up the East Coast to enjoy the Fall Foliage. We depart from Boston MA on September 19th, visit Portland ME, Halifax and Sydney in Nova Scotia, Charlottetown and Prince Edward Island, and Quebec City in Canada. We have 4 days of Stitching at Sea in our private Stitch Lounge aboard the ship... our group is limited to 45 staterooms.

At this time, (July 2023) our prices are running about $1400 BELOW Celebrity's published prices - because we booked this trip super-early. This is not one of our European River Cruises (that is the Rhine one in May listed above.) This is one of the larger cruise ships - a totally different experience, and fun just in different ways! Lots of different options on this trip.

Contact Judy Bradford, Our Awesome Trip Lady. Judy's contact info is: She can be reached by phone - Office is 866-559-4449, and her Cell Phone is 519-841-7245. We're expecting a fun group and lots of fun, new memories!
NOTE! At this time, this cruise is sold out.

Click for a larger view We Welcome Lois Mouriski of Lady Dot Creates  
Chic - A Needlework Treasure Box  
October 18th & 19th, 2024

Lois hand-dyes gorgeous trims for most of our industry's top designers. She loves to make and create. In talking to Lois, her vision is decking out a wooden sewing box!

Our two-day class will start with constructing and painting/finishing a wooden box with custom laser cut design in the lid which mirrors the OOP Blackbird gray blue fabric as shown in the pictures. This same OOP Blackbird fabric will be married to the 2 other fabrics (alphabet and taupe floral print) which are also OOP and from The French General for our interior box decorating. These 3 fabrics have been under lock and key in the Lady Dot Warehouse until the perfect opportunity presented and this is that opportunity.

The box measures approximately 9"x6"x2.5", constructs beautifully as each of the 6 pieces are laser cut too - gluing and painting will be a breeze and that's how we'll start class. Interior of the box will have a tufted, padded bottom and padded top and maybe we'll do the sides too - depending on how much room we need in the interior that will be filled with goodies which are a secret until class - but I guarantee you, wonderful.

You're asking what about the taupe fabric with the scrolling alphabets that you see? Well, each of you will receive your own picked and most perfect letter which will be used to construct a pin pillow to fit inside the box. Thread spools, winders, fobs, vintage buttons, ribbons and bows - all treasures and secrets to personalize the interior of your own boxes and Lois is constantly finding treasures.

Let's hope there's enough room in that box - with complete printed instructions and availability as we inspire each other to walk out at the end of day two with a finished project that you will be overjoyed to call your own. If you've taken a class with Lois, she's there for you the entire time. She's a bit of a tough old bird, but knows her stuff and will not let you flounder if you get lost or need extra help - that's part of the weekend. Her favorite phrase, "there is never a stupid question - because if you're asking it - somebody else is thinking it" always proves too true.

Weekend Class is $250.00. $50 Due at registration. Balance due August 18th. Cancellations made before August 18 receive funds paid less $50. Cancellations after August 18 may receive kits with no refunds or partial refund (TBA) if we can fill your space.

Rosewood Manor
We Welcome Karen Kluba of Rosewood Manor
A Custom Sampler Designed in Class!
November 6th & 7th, 2024 and November 8 & 9th, 2024

We're excited to bring Karen to the She Shed for 2 sessions of 2 days each of merriment and stitching! She wants to bring lots of motifs... YOU (aka 'the class') vote and decide on sampler pieces, parts, verses, colors, motifs. Then, because she's a whiz with her software, she's going to sit down HERE and design that sampler - we're going to print it, and kit it, and you'll have a custom sampler by Saturday! How cool is that? Details aren't ironed out yet, but I picture custom fabric counts, all that and lots of creativity. Again, because class is in our She Shed, size is limited to 40. Approximate times might be Wednesday and Thursday 10 to 4-ish and Friday and Saturday 10 to 4-ish.

Your fee of $200 includes all the materials, yummy snacks and class goodies. $50 due at registration, balance is due September 9th 2024. Cancellations made before Sept 9 receive funds paid less $50. Cancellations made after Sept 9th receive kit with no refunds or partial refund (TBA) if we can fill your space.
