Dark Colors

Working on black or dark colors can be difficult.  Try placing a white cloth on your lap to create a contrast with the dark colors.  And make sure you have good light! 


Quick Links



The Village Ewe is excited to have a Canvas Works Trunk Show during the month of October!  These designs are exquisite and will add elegance to any decor.  The Trunk Show includes pillow, coaster, rug, game board  and brick canvases.  Additionally there is a sale on selected Julia's Needleworks canvases.  Please see more details below.

As the days become shorter, make sure you have appropriate light for stitching (see the Tip of the Month column).  We carry Stella, Daylight and UltraOptix lamps in a variety of configurations from clip-on battery powered "book" lights, which are especially good when stitching on planes and trains, to table top and floor lamps with a swivel arm and magnification.  You'll enjoy stitching more, if you can see better!

Happy Halloween,   


Estelle, Ali, Karen and Polly
