I will be closed on Thanksgiving (of course!), open on Friday 11/24 and closed Saturday 11/25 through Monday 11/27 for the holiday weekend.  Be sure to get your stitching fix before then!  Just feel like browsing?  My website is open 24/7.



Don’t forget!  The KCN Trunk Show is only here for another week!

KCN represents about a dozen designers so even if you don’t see anything you want in the videos here, you can check their website, and have a nice browse.  Any of their designs you order from me during the Trunk Show (now through Thanksgiving) will be 20% off.

The videos are here:

Small People and Sweaters

Small Stocking Ornaments and More

Large Floral and Nutcracker Pieces

Try pausing the video to catch the number and give me a call to order – or email me if you just need a price and size.


Need a little help with your canvas?  Need some fresh ideas?  I teach every Wednesday from 2-3:30 p.m. YOU MUST SIGN UP AND PAY  IN ADVANCE so call or come in to sign up.   The fee is $15.  The fee is not refundable and can not be applied to a future class unless I am closed due to snow or ice.


I just received some new canvases from my Market Order including the above sea otters from Pippin and new PDQ Kits.  These kits have everything – the 2 x 3″ painted canvas design, thread, instructions and a little frame to finish your piece into.  They make great gifts stitched or unstitched!  There’s a red-headed woodpecker, two baby birds, a crow on a pumpkin and a moose in the woods.

I also bought the above owl below canvas at Market and it FLEW out the door when I showed it on LNS Day.  Let me know if I can order this cute owl for you.  It’s called Einstein’s Owl and is on 13 ct., the design area is 8 x 10 and it retails for $108.  I just think that he is so cute with that heart shaped face!  Imagine the fun stitches you could choose.

PreMax Red Serrated Scissors for Metallics

I just restocked on these handy and cute scissors.    They’re great for cutting your metallic threads like Kreinik.  These scissors feature a comfort grip red coating and a serrated blade.  Frequent cutting of metallic threads will dull your regular scissors so consider making a small investment in a pair of serrated scissors.  $28.



The table is now available for FREE for friends or groups wanting to get together and stitch during business hours.  I thought I would try this out for a while and see what kind of need there is in the stitching community. You MUST reserve in advance as I do have classes to schedule around.  A second table can be added if you have more than 8 stitchers.  I recently hosted Stitch Club Detroit and it was a great group!  Just call me to reserve the table, 810-694-3040.


Homestead Needle Arts is now on Instagram.  Follow me there and/or on Facebook!


Do you have a particular canvas or thread selection you’re hoping for?  Let me know and I’ll help your loved ones find the perfect gift for you.  Remember, I also have gift certificates available in any denomination.


SNOW AND ICE could be coming soon.

Please always call or email me if the weather outside is frightful.  I commute about 35 miles so in the event of a bad snow or icy roads, I may elect to stay home that day.  I will always keep my Facebook page updated and the answering machine so that you can call or check online.

I hope that you all enjoy the Thanksgiving holiday with family and friends!  Here’s a picture of my little turkey.  She looks sad but I promise you, she is NOT.
