Tip of the Month

A "Favorite Things" Belt


If you have a special someone reaching a milestone birthday, graduation or anniversary, think about stitching a "favorite things" belt or pillow.  We have the best custom painter in the business. 


 These items make a unique

gift that will be cherished for years to come!


Drew's Favorite Things Belt 

Quick Links



We had a great trip to Phoenix for The National Needlearts Association ("TNNA") Winter Trade Show.   We found new canvas designs and new designers!


The "new" design for this year seems to be owls!  We found a fabulous Susan Roberts owl belt, owl "stuff-its" by Kathy Schenkel and a beautiful owl pillow by Amanda Lawford.


Our new "find" is a makeup pouch by DJ Designs.  The canvases are pretty and will sell for $70. Look for them to arrive next month. The new Susan Roberts gingerbread houses have arrived and are going fast, along with her new quilt patterns.


   Smathers & Branson Card Holder, Key Fob & Flask


We have added a new thread to our already broad selection called Stardust.  It is Silk and Ivory with a metallic filament.  It works well on 13 mesh and adds some sparkle.


Come see our new designs arriving weekly!  And mark on your calendar our Leap Year Sale on Wednesday, February 29th.  You'll have to wait four years for the next one!


Happy Stitching,


Estelle, Ali, Dorothy and Karen
