NewNeedlepoint.com just had itís 3rd birthday. I am sometimes amazed that we made it this far. I keep making changes and tweaking my web store. I want it to be the best it can be.
NewNeedlepoint.com has 2 sections. There is my extensive collection of New Needlework books. I have expanded the books categories to cover other types of stitching in addition to Needlepoint.
There are knitting & crochet books, embroidery & cross-stitch books, color use & theory books and the catch-all misc. books category.
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.
I have also expanded the Rare/Used books categories to cover other types of Needlework.
I specialize in Bargello Needlepoint books although there arenít that many of them out there, used or new.
The other side of NewNeedlepoint.com is the Canvases & Kits I sell. I stock mostly hand painted needlepoint designs by some of todayís great Needlepoint Designers. I have a special category for the gorgeous & colorful work of Laurel Burch.
I also have a good collection of Patt & Leeís superior Gliceeí
needlepoint designs including a whole section of Pattís Scrap Threads collection. The perfect way to use all that extra stash we all have.
I assemble the kits 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 have a small Needlework Tool collection, all of it things I use and know work well.
I want to thank all my customers for 3 great years, so far. This coming year should be as interesting as the last 3 have been.
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. Although they are getting harder to find, or to find in a reasonable condition. I recently ordered 2 and both arrived full of foxing. Not good. Needless to say, I got a refund.
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
An unusual book and one I had not heard of before I began searching for these books. It focuses on geometric needlepoint designs, mostly with just one or two colors, occasionally three colors. The designs use stitch and texture to create their effect and they sure do.
This book has been a consistant & steady seller for years now, here on NewNeedlepoint.com. This is the first time I have had a paperbound copy of it. In general, paperbound books do not age & hold up as well as hard cover ... More Info
Elsa Williams is one of the better known needlework designers. Her designs and products include needlepoint, embroidery, crewel work, cross stitch and more. The needlework products bearing her name are too numerous to mention.
