Tip of The Month
Stitch Guides


Stitch guides are just that - guidelines.  They are not rules.  There are no needle- point "police".  You should stitch how and with any thread that makes you happy!

As we start thinking about Back to School, don't forget about your stitching!  The Village Ewe's popular Gingerbread Workshop is scheduled for September 7th.  We have a few spots left, so call now to reserve your space and choose your "house".  These gingerbread houses are some of our most sought after items.  Join the fun!  Start a village of your own!


Dorothy's Going Away Pillow

You may recall from our last newsletter that one of our employees - Dorothy is moving out of the region.  The "Ewes" stitched a custom designed pillow (above) of her favorite things.

A new Ewe has joined our flock.  Please come in and welcome Polly.  She is a very experienced stitcher with a great eye for color!


The Village Ewe will be taking a short vacation to re-stock for the busy fall season.  We will be closed August 25 through September 2nd (Labor Day).


Until then, happy stitching!


Estelle, Ali, Karen and Polly
