Painted Pony Designs


Snowmen, Santas and ornaments galore!


Tip of the Month


Needles Are Important!


Use a new needle for each new project, as they do wear out.  The threads, especially metallic, wear the needle "eyes".  We have a selection

 of gold and platinum needles which last longer and are easier to stitch.  Try them and see the difference!


Quick Links



So many new canvases have arrived at The Village Ewe in the last few weeks...belt designs from Voila, gingerbread houses from Susan Roberts and Christmas stockings from Strictly Christmas.  We seem to have a canvas for everyone!


We are excited about our October Trunk Show of Painted Pony DesignsThey are well known for their Christmas designs.  Their line includes lots of small, easy to stitch, quick  projects. See the Specials Offers section below for more details.  Stock up while the sale is on!

Halloween Hanging Witch


Don't forget to come visit our Halloween display, stitched by Ali.  

Be sure to look for Count Dracula and Frankenstein lurking amongst goblins and witches.  Ali's expert stitching is an inspiration to us all!


There is still time to complete your holiday stitching.  We will do our best to have your ornaments, belts and pillows finished before the holidays in December.  For those looking to stitch a last minute gift

for the holidays, we have a nice selection of self-finish items.


Please see our Upcoming Classes and Workshops section below.  We continue to offer a variety of classes and workshops: for all levels (beginner to advanced) and events which are one session or spread over several weeks.  We are here to help if you need some stitching time and guidance to finish a current project!


Happy Halloween,


Estelle, Ali, Karen and Polly
