Tip of the Month

Empty and "Shared" Holes

Whenever possible, bring up your needle in an empty hole and take it down in a shared hole.  This will prevent you from splitting your thread and it also keeps any "fuzzies" coming up to the surface.


Quick Links

Nantucket Ornament.

Key Fob
Keyfobs are easy to stitch & small projects which make great gifts!

We carry a variety of self finishing products.



As summer quickly approaches, let The Village Ewe assist you with your stitching projects.  We have new belt patterns, ornaments and plenty of stockings to choose from.


Summer time is perfect for relaxing and needlepointing!  If your plans take you out of town, we are happy to ship items to you and also receive by mail your canvas submissions for finishing.


See below for details on the Old Greenwich Sidewalk Sales and our summer class schedule.  Sign-up now!


Happy stitching,


Estelle, Ali, Karen and Polly
