Tip of the Month

Think you are finished?


There is nothing worse than getting your needlepoint back from the finisher and finding missed stitches.  Be sure to check for missed or uneven stitches before submitting it to be finished by holding it up to the light.  Or use a "bug eye" to view the canvas.  And be sure all thread ends are secured and clipped.  It they are not, you may see lumps on the front side of the needlepoint. 

Quick Links



Halloween is a favorite holiday at The Village Ewe.  Come see our needlepoint Halloween village display, expertly stitched by Ali.  Be sure to look for Count Dracula and Frankenstein lurking amongst goblins and witches.


Halloween Hanging Witch

Brand new "stuff-its" have arrived from Kathy Schenkel Designs, including adorable mini stockings brimming with peppermints, cupcakes and cookies.  We also received new canvases from Needle Crossings.  Many of these are on a 13 mesh canvas, making for a fast stitch "mini-project".


There is still time to complete your holiday stitching.  We will do our best to have your ornaments, belts and pillows finished before the holidays in December.  For those looking to stitch a last minute gift for the holidays, we have a nice selection of self-finish items.


Please check our Workshops and Stitching Hours section below.  We are here to help if you need some stitching time and guidance to finish a current project


Happy Halloween,


Estelle, Ali, Dorothy and Karen
