Happy New Year everyone! We're starting the year with a beautiful trunkshow from the Princess and Me which runs from now until Saturday, January 19th. The Princesses are based out of Middleton, Wisconsin. They are known for their wonderful stitch guides for small needlepoint ornaments and decorations. With a variety of threads, textures, and stitches used in each design it's a good way to try out decorative stitching if you haven't tried it previously. This trunk show features almost a hundred different models on display. Trust me, you should check it out in person even if you don't needlepoint, it's worth seeing for inspiration!
During the month of June we have the pleasure of hosting an Alexa needlepoint trunk show. This show includes charming Christmas stockings, elegant Christmas ornaments, and cute Easter decorations. Alexa designs does some of the warmest grandfatherly faces on her santas especially. Many of the stockings have little boy and little girl themes making them great for that special little one.
Jeanine Sherman is the talented artist behind Alexa Designs. She has been designing for over 45 years and hails from the great state of Texas. She's one of the sweetest people in the needlepoint business and she has a heart of gold, adopting several abandoned dogs over the years.
So I hope you have a chance to come in and see the trunk show this month while it's here until June 30th. We will also be having a special on all Alexa designs during the month of June, taking 15% off the regular price!
It's the last few days of the Susan Roberts trunkshow, it will be headed home at the close of Saturday. So this week is a great time to come in and browse and maybe find your next needlepoint project. I love some of these brickcovers Susan does, they are usually made up as door stops or just for decoration purposes as a box. Good when you run out of space on the couch for more pillows, and the walls have no room left. And our local finisher who has been doing our finishing for over two decades does a great job at making them up.
April 19th through May 5th 2018 we are hosting a trunkshow from Susan Roberts Needlepoint! We have a wide assortment of canvases included in the show including many pillows, brickcovers, baby samplers, belts, round ornaments, stockings, and standup Santas. Also all canvases from Susan Roberts are discounted during the show. We'd be happy to mail order if your not in town. If you have any question please call us toll free at 1-888-255-7957. Here is a photo gallery with a small sampling of what's available. There are hundreds of canvases to see!

I am always impressed by our wide variety of customers with such varied interests and talents. We have noticed more interest in wool applique embroidery by our quilting friends so...We now have several new threads from Sue Spargo! They are: Dazzle metallic ( 50 yards) , Eleganza #5 perle cotton (40 yards) , Eleganza #8 (70 yards) and Ellana wool blend in (70 yards) spools. Also we have Sue Spargo Australian merino wool packs in 9"x7" 6 packs and fat 1/8th yard pieces.Oh My ....such beautiful colors. Hoping you are inspired!
This month we are happy to host a needlepoint trunk show from Painted Pony Designs this month! Featuring over 200 beautiful angels in every style imaginable, there's a design for everyone. There are angels decorated from locations around the world, angels with favorite hobbies and pastimes, and many, many more. These can be made up as ornaments with a stiff and padded finishing style, but they can also make a sweet little pillow if you stitch a square background around the angel design. Remember these angels will fly home on October 1st, so you will want to come see them before then. We are also offering 15% off discount on all angels from Painted Pony Designs for the duration of the trunk show.
One of our favorite trunkshows is back for a limited time! Now through the end of August we are happy to host a needlepoint trunkshow from Needle Crossings. There are hundreds of canvases in the trunk show, with an equal amount of 18 ct and 13 ct canvases. Needle Crossings are known for their fun beachy designs and there is a large variety of designs in the trunkshow big and small: relaxing beach landscapes, lounging cats, seashells by the seashore, dapper dogs, luminous lighthouses, beautiful birds, and colorful cottages. Also until the end of August take 15% off the normal price on all Needle Crossings canvases in the shop. Please stop in and see all the beautiful canvases for yourself. Here's just a very small sampling of pictures to whet your appetite.
From June 1st through June 21st we are happy to host a trunkshow from The Princess and Me needlepoint designs. This limited time event features over 75 unique stitched models to check out and four hundred canvases! Predominantly it is Christmas ornaments, but there are also designs for Halloween, Easter and Thanksgiving, as well as designs for baby's and weddings. If you are not familiar with this designer each of the canvases has a stitch guide included with decorative stitches and thread suggestions to really make your work "pop"! They make great next steps for anyone wanting to try some fancier stitches, beyond just continental and basketweave stitch.
