Tip of the Month
Scrap Canvas

You are likely to do several new stitches on future projects. That is part of the fun learning experience with needlepoint. You might want to have a scrap canvas to practice on. Put a small piece of the same mesh canvas on stretcher bars and use it to practice new stitches.

It is that time of the year when we are asked about deadlines for finishing needlepoint. The Village Ewe  is  still able to have ornaments and belts finished in time for the holidays, so hurry in! It's not too late to stitch and "self finish" a gift for the holidays.  W e have a variety of self finishing items (see below pictures) in stock, including jewelery boxes, storage boxes, trays, luggage tags, key fobs, book marks, c oin purses and eyeglass cases, etc.
