What’s New: Waverly Wool is here

20141112_113520 20141112_113459We finally have a great wool option! It’s Waverly Wool, a three ply, 100% wool fiber. Use all three strands on 10 mesh; use two out of three on 13 mesh, and use one out of three on 18 mesh. We carry about 100 colors in 8 yard mini skeins for $1.50 each. You can also special order larger hanks for $12.

We think Waverly is going to be a great choice when you want to stitch with wool: rugs, belt backgrounds, dog collars, and other projects that benefit from a sturdy background. Plus the colors are really vibrant!

Happy stitching,
Susan

The first dog day of summer calls for a showcase of our new Mod Dog canvases! Check out the new Labrador, Golden Retriever, Corgi, and Jack Russell additions to my Susan Battle Needlepoint line.

The other Mod dogs (Bulldog, Doxy, Labrador, and Westie) can be seen by clicking here.

These canvases are easy and fun to stitch. They also lend themselves to trying new, decorative stitches.

Stay cool! Susan

STELLAAAAAAA

Move over, OttLite there’s a new needlework lamp in town! This table top lamp from the new company Stella Lighting offers three shades of light (warm, bright, and cool) for you to choose from depending upon your project. No switching bulbs or anything; just the press of a stylish button. Here’s the flyer:

The cost is $220. That’s considerably more expensive than OttLite but it seems like a cool product. We are thinking about carrying these but I’m trying to gauge interest before stocking up! Please email me or comment on Facebook.

Happy stitching; happy seeing what you are doing,

PS Forgive the Streetcar Named Desire reference…Grace, Bettina, and I got a little punchy yesterday afternoon and began shouting “Stella” at top volume!

Happy Easter!

Grace, one of the TPOIA girls, stitched this canvas and used a terrific herringbone fabric for the set in…it looks awesome!

Molly, another one of the TPOIA girls, just finished a darling little bunny.

Associated Talents and Labors of Love also make wonderful Easter canvases…have fun looking at their webpages!

Happy Easter; happy stitching,
