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

Design your own needlepoint belt

I just found out about this marvelous book by Ann Cady Scott. It’s a binder full of images, letters, and numbers graphed out to work on a belt you design yourself. Here’s a link to her website: http://needlepointbeltbook.com/belts/default.htm which explains everything. We will be carrying this book at The Point of It All; it will retail for $65.

The designs will also work on my Design Your Own Key Fobs. I sell the key fob kit (canvas, hardware, instructions) by clicking here.

Of course if charting your own design sounds horrifying/impossible/daunting/an opportunity to make a big needlepoint mess, you can always work with our fab custom artist. If you are in town this Friday afternoon, the Divine Deborah will be at the shop. Email me for specifics.

Happy designing; happy stitching!
Susan
