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.

* = Required Field
Another great needlepoint book by Sherlee Lantz, the author of A Pageant of Pattern for Needlepoint Canvas. This book is subtitled "From Persian Pavilions to Op Art with One Stitch. Ms Lantz does seem to like the idea of a "pavilions". The book was published by Viking Press in 1978.

This book has become harder & harder to find. I have sold many copies of it here and it is now almost impossible to find one in both good condition and not too expensive.

I List this book in both the Bargello & the Needlepoint Reference book categories, it belongs in both.

TrianglePoint is a new idea in needlepoint. I have stitched this pattern, using it for a border on a Bargello Design of mine. This is how that limited size border looked

I found TrianglePoint very easy to stitch, with great results. This book has many color pictures and very clear stitch graphs. In fact, it is basically the same stitch, just different sizes.

The design charts, how to put the triangles together to make the designs shown, are in the back of the book.

Trianglepoint is in very good condition. In fact, this copy is as good as any I have ever seen.

The pages inside are very good, only slightly yellowed by age. The spine is tight. A former owner wrote her name on the inside cover page.

4 Way Bargello: Revised Edition  by Dorothy Kaestner
Dorothy Kaestner's wonderful book, 4 Way Bargello. I have a copy of this book myself and have sold so many here I now buy them in multiples, not 1 at a time.

This is, of course, a rare book. It is getting harder to find more each time I sell one. 4-Way Bargello is a very advanced form of Bargello Needlepoint. ... More Info
