We are so relieved to feel a little nip in the air.
Soon it will be stitching by the fire, football,

Customer Gallery

We are proud to show off the wonderful
stitching by our customers. Enjoy!



Would you look at these cuffs!


Jill F. did a marvelous job bringing these sweet
woodland-themed Charley Harper stockings to life.



Sandra Gilmore's "Poterie" stitched perfectly by Taffy D. with stitch guide by Robin King. What a terrific collaboration. Love the wallpaper and 3D trapunto technique pillow on the chair.
It is truly in the details!



Another fabulous collaboration between Jane A. and Robin King during the July "Help is on the Way" session. This lovely Asian inspired collage piece by Juli Poitras of JP Needlepoint is a gift to a dear sister-in-law. Jane did an absolutely beautiful job balancing the stitch texture to enhance the overall design. 


Renie W. saw this fresh and crisp Melissa Shirley floral canvas and immediately knew she wanted to finish it into a tray. This is another perfectly executed stitch guide written by Robin King. The background is the perfect foil for the 3 dimensionality of the flowers.


Gobble gobble...Carolyn S. stitched this "Sew Much Fun" turkey with panache! Love the stitch variations and the colors. Carolyn put her own spin on the included stitch guide. Brilliant.


Jenne C. had a blast stitching this fun Charley Harper
animal collage. Love her choice of threads and stitches.



Henrietta H. stitched these new darling Christmas Dream Bars
from Kathy Schenkel. Great ornaments for boys and girls! Yum.



Sharon A. traveled from Florida to attend the July "Help is on the Way" session with Robin King. She brought this Edie Harper (wife of Charley Harper) "Peepkin" Pumpkin Kitty. Lovely stitch and thread selections were chosen for this Mew.


Fun, Fun, Fun “Styln” by Annie Lane stitched by Susan S.
Love her stitch selections. Her use of Metallic shimmer Ribbon 144-10 for the windshield was brilliant. It really looks like glass.


Gail A. stitched this lovely Tallis bag “Shayna” by Sandra Gilmore for her good friend’s Granddaughter. Gail choose to enhance the colors and add a slightly larger border to accommodate the mosaic flower. She also beaded the flowers.


Love this little Halloween Kitty in the Treat bag.
Ann S. couldn't resist stitching it. This a part of a new series of Halloween ornaments by Kathy Schenkel.
They all come with stitch guides…Sweet!



Drew's Santa loves to fish!
Becky V. did a meticulous job stitching this
Rebecca Wood stocking for her son.
Her attention to detail is superb
.


How could I resist stitching this fun Raymond Crawford picture frame for Lulu and Artie, my new kitties. I loved using the Kreinik Japan thread for the top stitching. It has an unparalleled luster and shine.


Stitch this...
