Trunk Shows

This month I’m hosting Mile High Princess and it’s in the shop now!  These delightful canvases are perfect to stitch for kids and grandkids, friends and family, and of course YOURSELF.  You can see a few on her website HERE and I’ve done some You Tube videos if you want to see the ones that are here in the shop.  If you want to order be sure to grab the number that I read off of the canvas.  The links are below, just click on them to see the videos.

Finished Samples

Medium to Larger Items





Mile Hile Princess Club

If there’s enough interest, I’d love to do a Club with either four of the skinny Santas shown above, OR four different seasonal canvases also shown above.  You would receive a canvas and stitch guide every 2 to 3 months.  Thread kits are optional.  I don’t have prices figured out at this time as I want to be sure there is enough interest.  So shoot me an email and let me know if that’s something you’d like to do.  It would start in the fall or later if the canvases are late from the painters.

Mindy’s Needlepoint is our June Trunk Show and that will be here in early June.

What’s New in the Shop?

I purchased some charms that you may want to browse to see if any of your canvases are calling for a little something.  These are all silver toned and range in size from about 1/2 to 1″.  There are nautical items, animals and birds, dragons and fairies and so much more!  Come on in and browse them.  They’re too small to put on my website but if you’re looking for something in particular just email me.

New Canvases 

There are new canvases here from the last Virtual Trunk Show.  I’ve got them all posted on the Homestead Needle Arts website.  Fun ones include Happy Daisies are Here Again by JP Needlepoint shown above, JOY letters from Raymond Crawford and all sorts of Halloween pieces from Kangaroo Paw Designs.  Also check out Raymond Crawford’s Christmas Tray canvas which fits the Sudberry Tray!

Whimsical Stitches, Volume 3 Book Update!

The book, Mary’s Whimsical Stitches, Volume 3 by Mary Legallet’s that was due here in January is finally shipping to me.  This is late because of supply chain issues with her printer.  Many of you have pre-ordered this from me and I do still have your orders.  If you can’t remember or want to order one, please email me, and I’ll put your name on one.   THIS BOOK IS NOT ON THE WEBSITE YET.

June Closure

I will be closed June 19 through June 24.  Please be sure to mark your calendars or email me if you want to be sure I’m open.  The Mindy Trunk Show will still be here when I return on Saturday, June 25.


This year’s Christmas finishing deadline is August 12.

I think that’s everything!  And for those of you that are Skye fans, here’s a pretty picture of her posing for me this weekend.

Stitch this spring!
