The Nimble Needle

Happy Fall to All!
We have so much news to share...


Many Thanks from The Nimble Needle
It's that time of year when we are reminded to Give Thanks for our blessings. I give thanks for the wonderful community of Stitchers which have supported
The Nimble Needle. You have created a warm and joyful environment which fosters new friends and the creative spirit. I have so enjoyed sharing in the percolation of new ideas.
I could not do it without you!  Happy Thanksgiving to All!

We will be open Friday and Saturday after Thanksgiving.
Come see us.

The Robin King report...

Oh, what fun we had!
Our minds were whirling with cool new stitches...
think Drizzle, Twisted Lazy Daisies or the Wiggle Waggle!
How that Robin thinks and sees stitches;
her ability to read spatial relations and pattern is remarkable.
Compound this ability with her attention to detail
and you have a winning combination.



Robin working with Jane.

We can't wait for her next visit.
Speaking of which... Robin is returning to The Nimble Needle
February 8, 9 and 10, 2014.

All classes are limited to 6 students per day.
Each student will receive one hour of consultation with Robin.
This will also allow time for more group stitch and technique demonstrations.

Saturday, February 8, 2014 will be a "Help" session.
We call it "Help is on the Way."
Bring an existing project or a new canvas
and let Robin put you on the right track.

Sunday, February 9th and Monday, February 10th
are Canvas Enhancement sessions.
Robin will write a detailed step-by-step custom stitch guide.
An actual size, high quality color copy of your
Enhancement canvas is due by TuesdayDecember 3rd.
This will give Robin enough time to properly create your custom stitch guide.

Customer Gallery
We are very proud of our talented stitchers.

Lulu Rose swimmingly stitched this lovely mermaid
from Amanda Lawford Designs.
The free-form Bargello pattern sings along with her
shimmering hair, beaded shells and fashionable top.



Donna Medeiros did a wonderful job stitching this
jolly Santa Face from Raymond Crawford.
Love the eyelashes, her stitch combinations and the couched beard.


Renie Weinstein has outdone herself
yet again on this Maggie canvas.
This masterpiece is a result of a "Renie and Robin King collaboration."
Wowzer! Look at the details: a padded brassiere, sparkles toothpaste,
seagrass broom straws, google eyes and beads everywhere.
Love the border and the balance of background stitches.

Eleanor Day went totally 3-dimensional on this fun and whimsical canvas.
Each flower is a different stitch with buttons and beads
creating focal points for each Bloom.
The background is a stitch of her own design…Go Eleanor!


Sally Moreland was truly channeling the spirit of Halloween
when she stitched this fabulous Sandra Gilmore design.
The popcorn is hot and fresh, the kitty is devilish, and
the swag on the wall is all tied with a bow. 
Love the ghost knobs.
Everything is anchored by a restful, yet effective, background stitch.

Judy Hales is ready for Thanksgiving
with this darling grouping by Princess and Me.
Her stitch selections are very well balanced.
The directional diagonal stitches in the Turkey
draw your eye to the upright stitches in the Pilgrims.



Sheliah King has stitched 11 (yes 11 !) Shelly Tribbey Skates this year.
Sheliah's goal is to have a Tree devoted entirely to skates!  
Truly one is better than the next.
She is the master of diminutive stitches,
Bullions, Turkey Work and Sparkles!

Nita Williams reminds us of the beauty and timelessness
of basketweave with a touch of diagonal mosaic.
These joyful giant Candy Canes from Melissa Shirley
would look great on a newell post mixed with greens!

Lynn Nobis stitched this John Johannsen
Mother and Child for her dear sister,
and had it appliquéd on this black Vera Bradley bag.
What a great idea! Lucky sister for sure.

Who can resist this face?
Susan Silver had a ball stitching this whimsical
Pajamas and Chocolate Pug. The artist, Patt, creates designs
vibrant fields of color perfect for stitches.
Susan stitched her design proud!
