Tip of the Month

Storing Finished Needlepoint

It is best to store needlepoint in a climate and humidity controlled place.  Lie pieces flat with white tissue paper or a clear fabric (pillow cases are great for this.)  Stockings can be hung on a hanger and stored in a closet. 

Quick Links




Season's Greetings!


A recent newspaper article highlighted the therapeutic benefits of needlework.  (We always said needlepoint is cheaper than therapy!) The rhythm and focus of needlework calms the brain, alleviating stress. And in the end, you have a beautiful handmade product! With this in mind, keep stitching during the harried days leading up to the holidays!


Katie and Drew Holiday Stockings  

Looking for last minute gifts?  Read the Featured Designer column for self-finishing gift ideas.  If you're in need of gift suggestions for yourself, consider a Gift Certificate from The Village Ewe, which can be ordered online in any denomination, or a lamp designed for needlepointing.  We have a variety of lamp configurations in stock - from clip-on battery powered "book" lights, to table top and floor lamps with a swivel arm and magnification.
