I’m so glad we all have our needlepoint to keep us happy.  Here’s what’s new!

January Trunk Show

This month’s Trunk Show is Tango and Chocolate.  DOGS!  CATS!  FUN FLOWERS!  Their most popular line has been the “dog coffees” and luckily they have some “cat coffees” too.  This Trunk Show is being discounted 25% if they have sent me the canvas!  Otherwise the discount is 10% because of the added work and shipping costs.  They’ve sent me lots of breeds and some are in both 13 and 18 ct. so just ask and I’ll  let you know if I have your favorite breed.  I’ve uploaded some videos of the shop walls to YouTube to make it easier for you to shop and those links are included below.  You can also view the whole canvas line at this link:  Tango and Chocolate.  Visit or call me, 810-694-3040 to purchase YOUR favorite breed.  The design size is about 12 x 12″.


NOW IN!  Stitches with Heart book by Brenda Hart

This self-published book has a lot of ideas for your canvas backgrounds, small spaces and beaded stitches.  There is an index of stitches divided by things like Backgrounds, Beads, Borders, Circles, Cross Stitches, Diamonds, Eyelets, Gobelin, Squares, Trame’, Triangles, Water and Waves and many more, to numerous to list.  This is a 92 page book on single sided pages and is wire-bound.  It measures 8-1/2 x 11″.

There are suggestions with most of the stitches with titles of the stitch or thread suggestions.  The stitches are not numbered so this is not an ideal book for the beginner.   There are lots of ideas for you to browse and consider for your canvas.  We all love books and this one will be no exception!  You can click on the link in the title to order it from my website or give me a call.

New Items

When I see new things, I’m ordering them ESPECIALLY when the supplier has them in stock.  The above pictures are three canvases that fit inside the Planet Earth Zippered pouch. They are based on the look of an agate stone in three different colors.   These items from Planet Earth tend to be out of stock at the supplier quickly so let me know right away if you see one you want.

Price Increases – we knew this was coming, right?

Rainbow Gallery has advised me that a lot of their threads will be increasing in prices on February 1.  Most of them will be increasing about .25 cents.  Anything in stock now will be sold at the regular price until February 1, so stock up!  Remember, needlepoint purchases last a LOT longer than your groceries and gas so shop accordingly.  🙂
