NewNeedlepoint.com just had it’s 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 aren’t 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 today’s great Needlepoint Designers. I have a special category for the gorgeous & colorful work of Laurel Burch.
I also have a good collection of Patt & Lee’s superior Glicee’
needlepoint designs including a whole section of Patt’s 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.
This handy little book is another in June McKnigh's series of Needlepoint and Bargello Needlepoint book. The books are small with big spiral bindings. They are the perfect size to carry in your needlepoint tote bag and I love spiral bounds books, they lay flat when open.
The subtitle for this book is "The Ten Commandments of Background Stitching" "Rules to help in the selection of the perfect background".
I think that pretty much says it all.
This is, as I have noted, a small ... More Info
A terrific book by June McKnight. In it she discusses the many types of unusual or over-dyed threads and yarns and how best to use each kind.
This small handy book contains full color graphs of 94 of stitches, stitched with these kinds of threads, so you will see exactly what you result will be. There are 3 pages with links to some of the speciality thread web sites.
One section covers satin stitches, another is upright stitches. A number of the stitches shown here are new to me (but ... More Info
These are wonderful cats. The Needlepoint Designs are by Jill Leman from paintings by Martin Leman, her father. Jill Leman is an extraordinary needlepointed.
This is a very nice book with just wonderful cats to stitch.
There is a close up of one of the stitched cats on the title page. The stitching is Tent Stitch and Basketweave Stitch (which still have their places in the needlepoint world, it is not all decorative stitches...yet).
Her stitching is perfect, her tension is ... More Info
The companion book to June McKnight's Decorative Backgrounds for Needlepoint copyrighted in 1992.
This More Backgrounds book is copyrighted 2001.
Some of the background stitches shown in this book take up 2 pages, 1 page for instruction and the 2nd for the graph. Others take just one page so it is difficult to get a stitch count for this book. From the index I estimate there are 64 stitches in this book.
All are graphed and described with Ms McKnight's usual skill and ... More Info
