Tip of the Month

Stitch Direction

To give maximum coverage to your stitches, stitch in the direction you are traveling.  If you are going from the bottom
to the top of a row, enter the canvas from the top of the stitch and complete the stitch by going into the canvas at the bottom of the stitch.  If you are going from the left to the right, enter at the right and go into the left.

Summer has arrived and it is the perfect time to stitch!  The long days provide great light for needlepointing.

The Old Greenwich Sidewalk Sales are scheduled for July 7, 8 and 9.  This is a great opportunity to stock up on belts, ornaments or to purchase that large canvas you have your eye on.  See the Special Offers & Trunk Shows section below for more details.

Be sure to join us at The Village Ewe's workshops.  We are having lots of fun following everyone's projects.  Our friends are stitching tree skirt pieces, pillows, trays and ornaments. These workshops are proving to be an inspiration for all of us in taking our needlepoint "to the next level". See the convenient workshop schedule below in the Upcoming Classes, Lessons and Workshops section.

The Meredith Collection

As always, if you are away for the summer and need threads, a canvas, finishing, etc., we are happy to ship it to you! Just call or email us.

Happy stitching,

Estelle, Ali, Karen, Polly and Del
