Valerie Pfeiffer Designs ... New to Embroidery Marketplace!
Counted cross stitch designs based on the beautiful watercolour paintings of Valerie Pfeiffer.
Valerie Pfeiffer was born and raised on a cattle station in the Australian Outback. After living in numerous cities around the world, Valerie settled with her husband in Vancouver, BC, Canada, where she lives surrounded by a lush garden full of birds and butterflies, which have become the subjects of her distinctive art.
Patterns are sold individually or in various kit forms.

Charity Fundraiser - New for 2021
I have been thinking about how I can, as a business help support some of the great charities across Canada and I have come up with this idea.
I learned to fold these mini paper boxes in a class I took this year and they are super fun to make. I am donating the scrapbooking paper and all the money raised from the sale of these boxes will go towards Charity.
Each year I will change the charity so that many great causes get supported. For 2021, I wanted to support the Canadian Cancer Society. My Grandparents both had Cancer and I felt this was a great place to start.

I am always looking to make my website better with every suggestion! I have been reviewing items I added awhile ago and when I find mistakes or missing items I get it corrected.
Please let me know if you find an error ... its nice to have a large group of "Proof readers" even if it is after the fact!!!!
Special Order Picture This Plus Fabric
Picture This Plus fabrics are a beautiful selection of hand dyed fabrics. They have 150 colours in 9 different thread counts and styles. It will take a while to load them all onto my website but if you see a colour you like it is available in all stitch counts for you to request.
Due to Covid19 there are delays in the dyeing process as they dye to order so some orders can take upwards of 20 weeks (4-5 months) to arrive ... but well worth the wait!!!
Email if you would like to know what colours are currently on order!!
Currently the Colour Calypso is shown with every stitch count variation that can be ordered.
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!
Calgary and Area Delivery
I am happy to offer delivery on your order within Calgary and Area, for a small fee.
Delivery is now an option when you finalize your cart. If you live outside my delivery radius, please email me and we can arrange delivery.
For in stock items I am happy to delivery within 24 hours (or my day off from my Full Time job!!!)
During this time of Social Distancing I am also happy to delivery to porches and mailboxes, add it to the notes on your order or email me.
I also offer curbside pick up at my 'store'/condo, you will see this option at checkout.
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.
firstname.lastname@example.org to set your appointment (I am on Mountain Standard Time)
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.
*Hard Hat Area - Product being loaded on to website
There are so many products that have been suggested to me, 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.
