Tip of The Month
Twisted Threads?


As you stitch, the needle will naturally twist and therefore so will the thread.  Every few stitches, twirl the needle to fix the twist.  Or allow the needle to dangle behind the canvas to untwist the thread.

Happy Summer!


We are not slowing down for summer at The Village Ewe.  The Old Greenwich Sidewalk Sales are later this week on Thursday June 27th thru Saturday June 29th.  Come and find great discounts both on the sidewalk and inside the store!  And don't miss The Old Greenwich Merchants Association's Annual Block Party on Saturday, June 29th beginning at 6 pm.  It's always great family fun!


Even though it's summertime, it is never too early to think about Christmas.   Holiday designs by Julia's Needleworks will be 20% off for the month of July.  She is sending a beautiful selection of canvases.  This is a great time to pick up your holiday canvases and get an early start on stitching while sitting on the beach or poolside.

One of our Ewe's is leaving.  Dorothy, who has been an integral part of TVE's staff for over three years, will be moving later this summer.  We wish her all the best!


The Village Ewe will be closed on July 4th and 5th in observance of Independence Day. Until then, happy stitching!
