Tip of the Month

Traveling With Needlepoint


When planning your next trip or beach outing, don't forget

to bring your needlepoint.  Needlepointing is a great activity while sitting for long stretches on airplanes, trains, cars and the beach. 


When traveling, keep your canvas in a clear project bag with threads, magnet, needle and a threader.  Project bags come in a variety of sizes to fit your canvases. Don't forget a thread cutter pendant for air travel!


Storing everything in a project bag makes it easy to pick-up and to bring your project along while traveling. 


Quick Links



The Village Ewe continues to receive new items weekly.  We have  beautiful floral patterns from DJ Designs, Ikat and Moroccan designs from CBK and colorful fabric totes that can be adorned with a needlepoint belt.  And make sure you check out the new bird ornaments from Amanda Lawford; the canvases come with rhinestones!


Summer is quickly approaching, as well as Graduation and Father's Day.  Think about a belt, wallet or key fob for that special gift.  We have many designs in stock.
