We carry over 50 Designers.  This month our Featured Designer is:




Fabulous 13 mesh ornaments that can be customized with initials, school, sorority and team names or uniform numbers!


Angel Sleeping 

Tip of the Month

Anchoring Thread Ends

When stitching Basketweave, never run the threads on a diagonal.  If you run your threads on a diagonal, it will show on the front as a stripe mark.  Instead, always begin and end on the vertical or horizontal.   


Sailing Cardinal Pillow

Quick Links




The Village Ewe is receiving new canvas designs every day!  The 2013 Melissa Shirley stocking has been received, as well as new canvases from Susan Roberts, Rebecca Wood and Julia's Needlework.


It's not too late to consider a custom painted design for a graduation gift.  School "crests" on belts, pillows, box tops (see last month's newsletter) and paper weights (below) are popular graduation gift items. 

GHS Graduate Mini-Brick

If you are looking for a quick project, we can have an ornament with the school seal painted for you, which also can be monogrammed with a graduation date. 


It seems like only "yesterday" that the first edition of The Village "Newes" was issued in June 2011.  Now 16 issues later, we've begun to archive past editions.  If you want to review prior issues for the Tip of the Month column or the Featured Designer, you can view past editions on the home page of The Village Ewe.


Until then, happy stitching!
