Tip of the Month

Try a New Thread
For a Special Effect!
 

The Village Ewe has an extensive selection of needlepoint threads, with 60 different types and over 40,000 threads in stock.  By simply changing thread texture, you can create a unique look!  Try "velvet" thread for Santa's coat, employ "fuzzy stuff" thread for animals or hair and use "boucle" thread for shrubs and grass.  We are happy to offer suggestions!

Happy New Year!

 

We have many things to be excited for in 2013!  Trunk Shows from Amanda Lawford, Associated Talents, Painted Pony and Julia's Needleworks are scheduled for 2013.  We will be holding a Saturday class during each of these Trunk Shows to showcase those designs.  Details are to come in the next issue of the "Newes".

 

Harvard Change Box

Now is the time to think about graduation gifts.  We can design that special needlepoint project for you.  Popular gift items include custom designed belts, university seal pillows

and box tops (see insert).  Please order now to allow sufficient time for stitching and finishing before the big day.

   

The Village Ewe's display boards, racks and walls are re-stocked with new canvases and threads. Please stop by to see what's new!

 

Happy Stitching!
