Mastering New Stitches

Before using a new stitch in your project, practice it on a piece of scrap canvas.  This may eliminate the need to rip and re-stitch.

We hope that you are getting plenty of stitching done to help pass the time during this cold and stormy winter!  If you are snow bound, please email or call and we will gladly ship whatever you need.  Spring will be here (we hope) soon!
The Village Ewe is receiving new canvases daily, including new designs and new designers, purchased during a recent buying trip to the Winter Market.

Be sure to review our Classes and Workshops section.  We continue to offer our most popular classes and have added workshops to introduce new stitches.  If your schedule is limited, we offer private lessons as well.

Stay warm and happy stitching,

Estelle, Ali, Karen and Polly
