FUN EVERY DAY – for an entire year

What a great idea from SamSarah Designs. There is a new leaflet every month – so far we have January, February and March (shown below) as well as the perforated paper on which it is stitched and the rack to hang it. You could add something personal to any month that is special to you and your family.

Blackbird Designs have a beautiful new sampler (shown right) which uses a collection of hand-dyed Crescent Colours and Gentle Art fibers. We have the fibers and fabric to complete FEAST OF FRIENDSHIP.
Another fabric we just received is the hand-dyed 30 count Straw Gingham for Amy Bruecken’s KITTY 4 SALE. This project is beyond cute and shown here.

Two recent arrivals highlight the autumn season. QUAKER MOON from Bent Creek has a quirky Halloween moon and wise owl. From Country Cottage, BE THANKFUL, presents a row of white pumpkins of every shape and size. Nothing says autumn like pumpkins. Both designs are shown below.

The latest Boxer from Lizzie Kate is fitting for so many situations. DANCE IN THE RAIN is an inspirational message good for a friend or to hang on your own wall.

Have you ever had a day like the one in My Big Toe’s latest offering – I BARELY SURVIVED is such a fun project and soooo true.

More to come

Welcome to our new online home

Now that we are beginning to feel somewhat settled in our new space, we felt it a good time to get started letting you know what we have and what is coming. 

Our walls are lined with specialty fibers from Crescent Colours (cotton floss and silks), Sampler Threads from The Gentle Art, Weeks Dye Works hand-dyed floss and Crewel Wool. All the DMC colors fill a great new rack which enables you to view the entire line.

We have received Kreinik blending filaments and braids as well as more additions to our Rainbow Gallery collection of Wispers and Treasure Braids; beads and some buttons also adorn our walls. Caron Collection fibers should immediately follow.

Our fabric cabinet contains the perfect color on which to put all these specialty fibers. We have linens in many colors from 18 count to 40 count; even weave Jobelan, Lugana, Ariosa, Aida and more. In addition, hand-dyed linens from R&R Linens, Weeks Dye Works and Picture This Plus are waiting to be seen. They look beautiful and feel amazing. We do custom cutting to pretty much suit your needs.

In addition to these lines, we carry tapestry needles, beading needles, Q Snaps, a variety of scissors, accessories large and small. Magnifier lamps should arrive this week.

We have a super experienced finisher waiting to put together your special projects.

Every week we are ordering new things, so if you see something on line you would like for your own, just call or email and, if we do not have it, we will order it for you.

Our designer list is long, but here are a few of the latest arrivals:
