Have a Wonderful Weekend!

The classic Trolley Neelde is great for basic thread laying. Place the tool on your thumb - it is adjustable, so one size fits all.
This long laying tool has a plastic handle that has good grip. It is a very sharp tool and could also be used as a hole reamer.
The BLT, Best Laying Tool, is a good size to throw in your small stitching bag. It is very basic in design and will get the job done!

This glass artisan laying tool is a beautiful and functional instrument. It would be a great gift for your stitching friends.
The wood grain in this laying tool is absolutely beautiful. There is a screw-on cap that makes this tool great for traveling. You won't have to worry if your bag is being ripped by the sharp tip because it will be safe inside its beautiful cover!
Our other wood laying tool is a full sized laying tool inside a wooden case. The wood is so soft and smooth - you will enjoy laying threads with this great tool.
These bags are so summery! We are loving the juicy prints..
Each small bag is 8" wide x 5" tall x 3" deep, and the wrist strap is detachable. Sara is currently carrying the cherry print bag.
The tote is a perfect companion to the smaller bags.
Measuring 24" wide x 15" tall x 7.5" deep with a 10" handle drop, this bag is great for traveling with larger pieces. When you are not using it for stitching you could take it to the beach!
Have you seen our beautifully stitched Santa? Rhea and Nancy stitched him as a team. They did great work, and this piece is truly a treasure in our shop.
The stitch guide and threads are available with this canvas. Let us know what we can do for you!

We would love to hear from you! Give us a call or send us an e-mail any time!

Lets Accessorize!

Sara has really been working hard on this beautiful class piece from Melissa Shirley.
Her ribbon work is exquisite. Each flower features a beaded center.
She is using clear beads with colored floss for the vase. The beading technique she will demonstrate is a brick stitch with a bead on each stitch. This technique is foolproof and fun and the beads are perfectly placed every time! Let us know if you would like this kit.
This pig is one of my personal favorites. I think she is so cute! The tattooed piggy has really been a hit around here.
Shelly has some great whimsical pieces. This portrait piece is another canvas I've had my eye on for some time now!

Call or e-mail us with questions or comments. We would love to hear from you!

This Melissa Shirley canvas is Sara's newest class piece. She will be teaching silk ribbon and beading techniques. Aren't her flower's beautiful?!

Happy Tuesday!

I have just been stitching away on the store piece from The Point of it All Designs. This canvas is so much fun to work on. The colors are just amazing.
The Bead Explosion kit from Sundance Designs offers great instructions and new ideas for incorporating beading into your needlework. When you are finished learning the different techniques you may use the finished piece as a reference for future projects.
Our newest flower pin in the store features a zebra-striped center. Fun and funky!
