Retirement of the Namaste Brand
A Note from Della Q about their decision to retire the brand
We recognize that continuing to use the name Namaste for our handbag company has hurt and offended people in our community and for that we apologize - specifically to the South Asian and BIPOC communities.
We’ve made a decision that feels right. We will phase out the name ‘Namaste’ by the end of 2020. We will put our current Namaste inventory on sale indefinitely and create a new line set to launch under our company, Della Q, in Fall.
We can’t wait to unveil all that’s new through della Q!
I will match the 20% discount on these products. I am still able to order most of the colours and I have Lavender in stock currently. This also extends to the Oh Snap pouches.
Email to find out what I have currently in stock.
Next up ...
Look for these products coming soon ... well as soon as I can load them onto my website

Are you hesitant to buy threads without 'seeing' them? Do you want to see how an item works?
Then book a FaceTime Consult!!
I will be happy to 'talk' on the phone about any of my products ... as a 21st Century girl I love email and online shopping but I understand if you want to 'test drive' first.
email@example.com to set your appointment (I am on Mountain Standard Time)
*Hard Hat Area - Product being loaded on to website
There are so many products that have been suggested to me over the last few weeks and as I have only so many hours in the day, many items are "under construction"
If you see the Hard Hat Area note, then I am in the process of loading options for you to order. If you need it right away, then just email me with the item you need and I can let you know the price and get it ordered for you.
As with all construction projects there will be a little disruption to your daily routine but the results will be great! And please excuse the odd traffic cone left behind.
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 something)
Also I am in the middle of uploading photos and prices of many different thread companies, so you can shop by colour … if you don't see the thread you need, please email me!

I am now IN STOCK for all the new colours for DMC in 6 stand floss, Perle #5 and Perle #8!
Floss: 01-35 -- Perle #5 & #8: 01, 03, 30, 32, 33, 34 & 35.

Designers - Favorites and Newly Discovered
Designers are the heart of embroidery. Everyone has their favorites but its also nice to branch out and discover new styles and ideas!
I personally love moderns cross stitch with bright colours and fun designs! You will see my taste in designs reflected in the patterns I will carry but let me know if your favorite isn't here and I'll get one for you (if I can). I love sassy designs and sparkly jewel tone threads and beads.
And as we all have different stitching moods I'm planning to carry as many styles as I can. From Cross stitch and Canvaswork to Whitework, Stumpwork and Goldwork (oh my)
I will also carry patterns for any stage of embroidery, from newbie stitchers young and old to experienced stitchers looking for a challenge. I have licensing agreements with some great Etsy Designers to sell their patterns in Kit form at Market across Alberta.
I want to carry "Adult Only" patterns that will make you laugh, curse and proclaim your political opinion! (look for them coming soon)
*Still adding all my patterns to the site ... check back over the next few weeks to find more product.
Designer Curated Collections
Want to start a new style but don't know where to start? Well I am going to reach out to Designers in many different styles to pick their brains ... what do they recommend for threads, tools and beginner patterns you can try on your own. I am also planning to organize classes throughout the year.
... can't live on bread alone
If you are like me, then you love great stitching themed gifts. The gift section will include items like Needleminders and my Limited Edition Mugs. New items will be added as I come across a cool item I think you might like!
