Tip of the Month
Belt Measurement

We are often asked about how to measure for needlepoint belts.  The belt size marked on an ordinary belt does not always correspond to the size of a needlepoint belt.  


Instead measure from the tip of the buckle to the most used hole of the belt.  This is the "finished" size. The length needed to be stitched depends upon the finisher, so please ask us for guidance.  


Also pay attention the the width of the belt, as two rows of stitches are used in attaching the finished canvas to the leather backing during the finishing process.  If you want a wider belt, you will need to stitch additional rows on the top and bottom of the belt.

Needlepoint belts are a great summer project. The canvas size make them portable, convenient to take to the beach, pool or on a plane and they are easy to stitch.  So we decided to hold a trunk show this month with belts from Julia's Needleworks

We will again be participating in the annual Old Greenwich Sidewalk Sales held later this month; so "come on down" as there are many deals to be found at The Village Ewe this month! See the Special Offers & Trunk Shows section below for more details.

The Village Ewe will be closing at noon this Saturday, June 13th.  We are off to a special wedding (hint...see the custom designed belts for the groomsmen). 


Happy Stitching,

Estelle, Ali, Karen and Polly
