What’s New


To help support, in a tiny way, my special Needlework Shops during Social Distancing, I’ve designed a little freebie for shops to kit up as they wish. I hope a needle and thread in your own little corner brings you comfort.

Coming in June!

Just tell your shop….PUT ME ON THE LIST!

Starting in June 2020 you will receive your first 2 months of the Warm Wooly Welcome – Stitch-A-Long. There are 13 patterns total. Each pattern has an adorable sheep friend, in a fancy outfit. This time you will start in the center of project with July Shee4p, Mr US and the words- 365 Days of Warm Wolly Welcomes. Every sheep has a button or beads and will be in your bi-monthly kits.

I used 20 ccount Weeks Dye Works Fabric with 3 strands of DMC for crosses and 2 strands black for backstitch. Week’s overdyed fibers are also given in instructions. The smallest count fabric that the embellishments fit would be 30 count over 2 threads.
