Monthly Newsletter Theme for 2024

This year my "Adventures in Embroidery" continues each month in my newsletter. This year I will be featuring a different designer. For March/April, I am featuring the designs of Brenda Keyes of the Sampler Company. I order directly from her in the UK and I can order any patterns from her catalogue.

*In stock patterns are noted on the listing itself as "Currently in stock"

Featured Designer - Brenda Keys

Email me if there is an item or pattern you would like me to carry!

A note about Fabrics

There are so many types and colours of fabrics I am unable to carry everything in stock. I am updating the listing to include the notes “Needs to be Ordered” or “Currently in Stock - Small, Medium and/or Large” … if you don’t see either note on a listing please assume it needs to be ordered

Feel free to email me with any questions

Lots of Fabric on Order!

I have been ordering from Picture This Plus for a couple of years. I have a monthly order for fabrics that are slowly making there way through the dyeing process (and I do mean Sloooooooowly).

Each time I have a Picture This Plus order in transit I add it to my Coming Soon section that you can access directly from my newsletter or you can filter my fabric by Brand collections! (Needle Bling Fabrics are no longer being carrying in the store, in stock colours are discontinued)

Below are my hand dyed fabrics that are in stock and ready to ship! Remember that each listing will note the sizes in stock currently (Small ONLY (1 piece) ... or Small, Medium and/or Large)

In Stock - Hand Dyed Fabrics! (find more using the dropdown menu)

Always in Stock

* NEW for fall 2023 - DMC Perle #12 balls are now Always in stock!

There are some items that everyone needs to be in stock when you want it ... for me DMC floss is one of those items.  It always frustrates me when you go into a store (who will remain nameless) and they are out of stock on most of the thread.  You are all excited to start a new pattern and you are pulled down to Earth, your bubble bursts, your dreams are shattered .... well a little over the top but you all know the feeling.

I am going to create a core group of items that will always be in stock (barring unforeseen disasters ... like the zombie apocalypse or a ship stuck in the Suez Canal), I will try to have 2 skeins of each colour in stock.

Included in my "Always in Stock" are ....

DMC Perle Cotton #5 & #12! (other sizes by special order)

Weeks Dye Works Stranded Cotton

Appleton Crewel 2 ply wool (skeins only)

Classic Colorworks Cotton floss

Mill Hill Seed Beads

There is a drop down menu under the "THREADS (UPDATED FOR 2024)" where you can see all the threads that have the entire collection in stock!

"Always in Stock" DMC (Floss, Perle #5 & Perle #12)
