Sequins and EZ Beader

We have new sequins from The Collection that are perfect to dress up any canvas.  They come in 2 mm and 4 mm and an array of colors. 
Gold, Blue, Silver, Red
Green, Purple, Black, Pink 
Here are a collection of sequins close up! 
This is the new EZ Beader.  This round disk has a magnet on the back to put on the canvas.  The top of the disk is sticky so beads are right where you need them.  We can't wait to give this a try!!!

Julia Snyder's Blackwork Book

This beautiful new book from Julia Snyder features an exciting new take on Blackwork.
Here is what Julia has to say about her newest creation:
"Most will see a Blackwork pattern and think that they are for fabric, cross-stitch, only. But, as you can see, I view them in a different light. I love to use them as 'over stitching' on areas of needlepoint that have already been stitched. When stitched over stitched needlepoint it will give you a brocade effect, it can also be used to hide canvas that is showing. If you are stitching over needlepoint then you can use a small metallic thread of the same color or a different color. You can also use a contrasting textured thread."
Wow! I cannot wait to use these Blackwork techniques on some of my stitching!
This book sells for only $42.95, and while we have several copies in the store we do not expect them to stick around for very long!
We would love to hear from you! Give us a call or send us an e-mail any time.
