  We carry over 50 Designers.  This month our Featured Designer is:
 Strictly Christmas
Quality  hand painted needlepoint designs in an  abundance of holiday  themes. Designs are  created to appeal to a beginning  stitcher, yet provide an advanced needle pointer with a  canvas where they can use any number of creative  stitches for a one-of-a-kind piece.

Tip of the Month

Needlework To Relieve Stress 

During the holiday time, you may feel stressed. Needlepoint can provide a calming retreat time. Sit, relax and stitch for a while!
