Tip of the Month

"Stripping" Yarn

Stripping means separating the plies of thread and putting them back together.  This process separates and realigns the plies making neater, more even stitches.  This is important to do when working with any pliable thread such as splendor, floss and waterlilies.

Spring Greetings!


The Village Ewe is stocked with new canvases!  Thanks to our recent buying trip, we have expanded our inventory with a selection of new artists, designs and designs with stitch guides.

 Smathers & Branson Card Holder, Key Fob & Flask

Get into the spring spirit by taking our new Hydrangeas in Nantucket Basket class.  This is an exclusive design for The Village Ewe.  We have incorporated beautiful silk ribbon, laid filling stitches and other techniques.  The finished canvas can be seen at the store.


Since we have received so much interest in the Box of Chocolates tray on display in the story (beautifully stitched by Dorothy), we will offer it as a class in June!  See the Upcoming Classes and Workshops section below for more details.   


With Spring here, school graduations are not far off. Now is the time to place your order for a personalized Carol Dupree canvas for your favorite graduate.  And for April they are 20% off!
