Hi stitchers,


Calling all needlepointers!  I need your beautiful stitched pieces for the Customer Showcase starting February 1 to celebrate being in business for 20 years.  Bring in your favorite finished needlepoint piece whether it’s framed, pillowed, an ornament, a stand up, a purse, a rug…etc.   I know it’s winter time but what’s better than seeing beautifully stitched pieces to cheer us all up?   Please bring your piece in now so I can have it on display for voting which starts February 1.  Items will be accepted after February 1 but sooner is better.  I’ll display your treasure safely away from curious fingers for the entire month of February.

And just for entering, you’ll receive a $5 off coupon for your next purchase and one entry for a MYSTERY PRIZE and it’s a good one.  That drawing will be held February 7.  The winner of the customer votes for favorite piece will win a Homestead Gift Certificate and the votes will be tallied March 1.

Customers will vote on their favorites during the entire month of February.   You can vote each time you visit!


Straw Silk has three new Color Palette cards.  You may recall that the third (middle) skein is the overdyed one and the other four compliment it.  The first is called All Things Orange and includes Ripe Mango, Hocus Pocus, the new hand dyed, Saffron and Jack’o.  Barbie Pinks includes a rich coral pink, a pale coral pink, a beautiful hand dyed pink, a lighter Hot Lips and a pretty red-based pink.  Island Blues and has five tropical paradise blues including a livelier Curacao, a cousin to Glacier, a beautiful blue over-dyed, Frozen and Blue Lagoon.  At just $22 per card, you can have these wonderful shades in your stash!

Remember, I’m only purchasing four cards of each color so call or email me NOW if you want them before they’re gone.

Speaking of new, I have one copy each of Needle Delights Originals charts as shown above.  Of course I can order more!   I am particularly drawn to the Rainbow Square…no surprise there!   They’re not on the website yet, so call or email me if you want one or need more information like project size and chart cost.



Free Stitch In at Homestead, Saturday, February 3 from 10-4

There’s still room for you to attend the FREE stitch-in here at Homestead Needle Arts.  Email or call me to reserve your seat.  We’ll have fun stitching together and the Maggie Trunk Show will be here!  



February brings the Maggie Trunk Show with her whimsical style and amazing amount of artists.  Yes, the above canvases are just a few of the many beautiful pieces in the Maggie line.  It’s not here yet but check out her website https://maggieco.com/html/main_table.html and let me know what tugs at your heart.  As always, 20% off the regular price including special orders for any Maggie canvas not in the Show.




You marked the date in your calendar right?  Come on in to Homestead and help me celebrate the best job I’ve ever had.  Limited number of goodie bags BUT you can enter drawings for JP Needlepoint canvases, Lee Needle Arts canvas duffle and much more.  My vendors have really stepped up and donated to make this party fun for you!  Refreshments will be available too.

That’s it for today.  Except for this Christmas Amaryllis gift, blooming its head off.

Stay warm, stay happy and stay stitching!
