Featured Designer
We carry over 50 Designers. This month our Featured designer is:

Fine, hand painted needlepoint designs for every stitcher, from the beginner to the expert,
and for every taste from the whimsical to the refined.

Tip of the Month
The Smart Lamp

Stitching is so much easier with the proper lighting. The Smart Lamp has come to our attention as a must have for stitchers. It is lightweight and foldable, making it easy to store and to travel with. The lamp has bright daytime LED lights with 3 color temperatures. It comes with both a USB cable and power adapter. Stop by The Village Ewe to pick one up today.

As we welcome in 2016, new canvases are arriving daily and The Village Ewe is full of new needlepoint projects! We are also offering new classes and are pleased to host this month, a trunk show featuring  Melissa Shirley. Melissa's designs are very popular with our customers. To coordinate with this special show, we have developed a workshop - see the Upcoming Classes, Lessons and Workshops below for more information.

If you can't make it to our store and want to purchase a canvas, or you're looking for ideas for your next project, view the Designers section of our website. Then contact us to arrange to ship the canvas, threads, stretcher bars with tacks, stitch guide, etc. to you.  The Village Ewe's website was recently redesigned, making it more user friendly when viewing from a mobile device.  Please let us know what you think.

While the Christmas holidays have just passed, now is the time to begin planning for next year with personalized stockings and ornaments.  Please see recently completed customer stockings (below left).

Happy stitching,

Estelle, Ali, Karen and Polly
