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.

I love Amish quilts, I love the simplicity of the designs and their amazing use of colors and pattern. I have a few authentic Amish quilts that I not only treasure but that I sleep under as well. I think the best way to enjoy them is to use them.

I was very excited when I saw the name of this book. I think Amish Quilt patterns would translate into exceptional needlepoint designs.

There are 27 designs in this book, drawn from Amish quilts from eastern Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana and Kansas.

The colors are terrific. The graphs and directions are complete and comprehensive.

The book has a center section with full color pictures of each design. There is also a short chapter on the history of the Amish & their quilts.

I sell many copies of this book, as soon as I get one, it sells and I have to look for another.

Needlepoint Designs from Amish Quilts is a large hardcover book with 141 pages. it was published by Charles Scribner's Sons in 1977.

This book is in very good condition, almost gift quality. The dust jacket is a little creased at the edges and someone has stamped some numbers & the original price on the inside cover page. They should not have, oh well.

The book inside is excellent.

The picture below shows you how the instructions pages are set up as well as the great condition.
