Hello friends!

I hope you had a relaxing Memorial Day weekend and were able to get some time to needlepoint.  I sure did!


The Trunk Show is on the way to me right now!  It is supposed to arrive Friday so I’ll have it out on Saturday.  Eye Candy will be sending lots of her canvases in the happy bright colors she favors.   The two above are March Market orders and are in the shop now.  All Trunk Show canvases, Trunk Show orders and in stock Eye Candy canvases will be 20% off regular prices.  See Ada’s wide selection here and call me or visit soon!


New canvases are arriving weekly and I’ve put them on the website.  There are a few Melissa Shirley canvases available at SALE prices like the one above, so don’t miss out on those.   Check them all out HERE.

Restocked Books

I’ve just gotten more Sandy’s Finishing Touches books.  For those of us doing the Needlepoint Now Wreath of Leaves, we’ve discovered that finishing doesn’t have to be as hard as it looks!  Sandy’s book can help make a finisher out of you.  It’s on my website here.

Also I ordered more of Carolyn Hedge Baird’s books including Stitchspirations, Needlepointing in Your Nest and A Field Guide to Birds, shown above.  Just use the search term Carolyn on my website and her books will pop up.

I Can Order These For You!

New from JP Needlepoint, the lion shown above will be available in September.  He’s painted on 13 count canvas  and  is  9 x 9″.  The hearts will also be out in September and are 10 x 10″ on 13 mesh canvas.  Just give me a call to order, 810-694-3040.

Variegated Valdani Pearl Cotton #5 

I’ve purchased a number of variegated perle cotton #5 colors by Valdani to see if there’s interest in my shop carrying this line.  The perle cotton is on balls as shown above and is about 46 yards for $7.  At this time, I don’t have them on my website.   Just call or email me if you see some you’re interested in and let me know via email if this is something you want me to carry.

Join the Homestead Needle Arts SNOWMAN CLUB

In good news, I finished the fourth Santa in Homestead’s Santa Club and have begun stitching the snowmen for the Homestead Snowman Club!  If you haven’t already expressed an interest in the Snowman Club, NOW is the time.

The snowmen are by Renaissance Designs and four of them are about 3-1/2 x 4″ with two being a little bigger.  The current Club canvas price for each is $62.50 including stitch guides written by Homestead Needle Arts!    You must be signed up for the entire Club to receive this special pricing.  They can be finished as ornaments or stand-ups.  Thread kits can be ordered too.  Prices will be available for thread kits at a later date.

Call me to join, 810-694-3040.  The club will start in Fall 2023.


That’s all the news for now!

I hope to see you soon and I encourage you to take your stitching outside!
