Tip of The Month
Which Color?


When working on a hand-painted canvas, it is sometimes hard to decide what color to stitch at an intersection (the cross of the canvas threads.)  The color painted on the intersection should be the color used to stitch.  However it is very seldom that one stitch is crucial to the overall design when the piece is finished.

Happy Spring!  The Village Ewe is thrilled to have a fabulous Amanda Lawford Trunk Show now through April 30th.  Amanda has sent us her newest designs as well as many past favorites. These canvases are beautifully painted and make gorgeous pillows, "bricks" and box top inserts.  She has lumbar pillow designs too!  Canvases from DC Designs (Amanda's son Derek Clarke) are also included in the Trunk Show. 


As always, we have many new items and designs in stock. And with Mother's Day quickly approach-ing, a Village Ewe gift certificate makes the perfect gift for needlepointers! They can be ordered online.    


The Village Ewe was recently honored by

Serendipity magazine as Best in Fairfield and Westchester 2013 for Needlepoint Supplies!  "This little shop packs a big punch with more than 50 designers, a full line of threads and lots of products to needlepoint, from bags to belts. Crafters will delight in the expert advice on-hand and the in-store classes for beginners and seasoned needle- pointers."    


And "The Village Newes" newsletter was

recognized by Constant Contact as a 2012 "All Star", a designation that only 10% of their customers achieve.  We wanted to share the great news and express our gratitude to you, our loyal customers, for receiving this honor. Our emails and events are made with our customers and supporters in mind, so thank you for engaging and interacting with us.


Until then, happy stitching!
