Another year for and I am very proud to say the store is getting busier all the time. I guess by now it is getting to be known or at least heard about. has 3 main sections. There are the Kits & Canvases, some of the canvases with Stitch Guides. I continue to feature the designs I love and am glad to see some of you love them too.

My store specializes in the gorgeous design work of Laurel Burch, Melinda McAra and her wonderful sports themes and New England based canvases. I have the amazing Pajamas & Chocolate line of colorful hand painted canvases. I am always excited to see what they will do next. Plus I have a good stock of the Patt & Lee Design Scrap Thread Canvases. I think Scrap Thread Canvases are a great idea for using up all the extra threads & yarns we all end up with.

Now I get to name drop. has original design work from many other canvas artists including Danji Design, Jean Smith, Mayo Design, Jane Wheeler, Sophia, Jackie Ritchey, Kirk & Hamilton & More.

This past year I added a needlepoint belt category.

I assemble the kits for these canvases myself from the threads I love to stitch with. I use Anchor & DMC Perle Cotton Floss in sizes 3, 5 & 8. Also Kreinik Metallic Braid Thread in sizes 12 & 16. I let my love for and appreciation of color & how the colors relate to each other guide me. Putting kits together is my favorite part of my business. has a very good selection of new needlepoint books and other new books with subjects or techniques applicable to needlepoint. I have begun to amass a collection of Letter & Monogram books, to add words & signatures to our stitching.

I have also expanded my category headings to make the exact book you are looking for easier to find.

By my best count (and I am sure I missed a few or counted some twice) I list 190 new books. Iím always looking for newer new books.

My Rare/Used Book titles are dictated by the books my customers want and the books that I can get, in reasonable condition. It is getting difficult to find decent, salable old books. Some of the Rare Books are getting quite hard to find.

There are some extraordinary books out there, they go out of print and are often forgotten. We are losing wonderful and very useful stitching books all the time. Some of them are unique and some of them cover subjects not discussed or taught in the new books. I think it is important to not let them fade away

I want to thank all my customers & friends for another great year and look forward to another terrific year.

*LOWER PRICE* Autographed!!  Bling, Glitz & Glamour for Needlepoint by June McKnight
I seem to have lost control of my stock (again). I kept ordering this great book, re-ordering & re-ordering until, to my surprise, I found I have 10 copies. That is a lot for a small shop like So, once again my mistake is your opportunity to buy this terrific book for less. (ouch!) June McKnight is, in my opinion and many stitchers agree with me, one of the best respected names in needlepoint books. Her books sell, year after year. There are fresh new titles ... More Info

A Gardener's Book of Needlepoint by Bodi, Merrill & di Montezemolo
With three authors, the book's info did not fit in my "title space". It is: A Gardener's Book of Needlepoint by Jack Bodi, Meg Merrill & Catherine di Montezemolo. Meg Merrill's name is the most familiar, she is the co-author of Nature in Needlepoint with Eva Brent. This is a wonderful book, full of garden or flower based designs.

Cat, Posing Needlepoint Canvas
This is something I don't see often here at home. A cat posing prettily. My 6 month old kitten, Alfie, is a wild man. Usually what I see is a large blur running by or jumping on something. All my breakables are our away. Sorry for digressing there. This great cat is part of Pajamas & Chocolates *Colorful Animals* series. These are fun canvases to stitch and the results are wonderful. Pajamas & Chocolate is a brand new design label from Patt & Lee Designs. It is all Hand Painted, ... More Info

Laurel Burch Dog Pyramid Needlepoint Kit
An amusing design, exciting Laurel Burch colors and color combinations, I think this is a wonderful Hand Painted needlepoint canvas. An original, hand signed design from Laurel Burch. The design area on this canvas is 7 X 7 inches. it could be stitched as small as 6.5 X 5.5 inches or (leaving a 1 inch margin of blank canvas) 8 X 9 inches. It is 18 mesh. What size you stitch it up to you. I have included enough floss to stitch it as large as the canvas area will allow. Each ball of ... More Info

The Best Bargello Book by June McKnight
I think these books by June McKnight are terrific. She is a great Needlepoint Teacher and her books explain & show you exactly what she intends to, no muss, no fuss. Still, I have to take exception to her title "The Best Bargello Book". It is, indeed a very good, even a excellent Bargello Book, but the best? All my carping aside. This is larger then the usual June McKnight books but in the same basic format. She begins at the beginning, with the canvas, goes to threads, the first ... More Info

A-Z of Silk Ribbon Flowers by Ann Cox
I know, I have many of these Silk Ribbon stitching books here in my web store. I know but in my own defense, these books have gorgeous projects, beautiful stitching. If I could add another line of threads to, it would be Silk Ribbons. I would love to kit with them, use them with other threads. Oh well...... Back to my subject. The flowers, made with Silk Ribbon, in this book are spectacular. There is quite a bit of technique here. The flowers have texture and ... More Info

*New Price* Hand Painted Flying Crane Fan Needlepoint Kit
This fan stopped me in my tracks. I saw it and had to buy it, no considering, questioning, doubts. That does not happen to me very often. This is a Hand Painted, Original Design by Sophia. She is also the NP artist who did the large & fierce Samurai I have listed as both Canvas and Kit. There is a lot of gold in this design and I highly recommend using some kind of Metallic thread or yarn or whatever shiny to stitch the gold areas. I don't think just gold colored will do justice to ... More Info

*New Price* Ewe & Eye Handpainted 4 Flowers Needlepoint Kit
Long before I knew who the designers Ewe & Eye were, I loved their work. It is very distinctive and I always knew when I saw "one of them". I am pretty sure Ewe & Eye is a division or outcropping or something, associated with Maggie & Co, the famous needlepoint design company. But I am not sure how so don't quote me. 4 Flowers is a good size 18 mesh canvas. The design area is 13.25 X 13.5 inches. The entire canvas measures 16 X 16 inches. The 4 flowers are hand painted in muted ... More Info

Samplers From A to Z by Pamela A. Parmal
Pamela A. Parmal is associated with the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. Boston is my home and I know (or knew) this museum well. In fact, I was there they day after Thanksgiving during my visit to Boston. I was in the Colonial American collections room and saw some of these amazing samplers. There is a new trend in museums. They no longer have the paintings from one period in one place, the furniture in another and the needlework in a third area, all from the same era. Now they are all ... More Info

The Beader's Guide to Color by Margie Deeb
When I first saw this book I thought "what is it?". but the cover was gorgeous so I ordered it for I know very little about the books I buy to sell here most of the time. The idea here is interesting and the beading examples are, without doubt, the best I have ever seen (according to my own taste, anyway). In fact, this book has much to say about the use and effects of color beyond beading. This is knowledge that can be used in all your needlework. To quote from ... More Info
