Needlework Expo...coming soon


The Needlework Expo is only 12 days away. Remember, this is a wholesale market so only shops can participate. I will be posting new designs in the "what's new" section our website, so please check it often. If a description says "coming soon", it is an item which will be releasing during the Expo. 

I am not going to blog about new releases this week, since they are the same things that need to be but on the website. Again, please check the "what's new" section to see what is coming.

I hope everyone is staying safe and getting lots of stitching done. 😀

Happy President's Day


Happy President's Day! If you are lucky enough to have today off, I hope you enjoy your day (preferably stitching).  If I didn't have to work, I would most definitely be stitching. It is too cold and dreary to do anything else. 

The Nashville Needlework Market has been cancelled this year. However, a group of designers have gotten together to do a virtual show March 6 - 8  (Needlework Expo). This is a wholesale show and only open to shops (of course, we have signed up to "attend").  As I get information, I will post items on our website that will be releasing at the Expo but most designers are only giving peeks of what will be released. If during your internet searches you see something that you would like, please let us know.

Happy Valentine's Day...a little early


Happy Valentine's Day! I know it's not Valentine's Day yet, but I won't blog again until after it has passed so I just wanted to go ahead and wish everyone lots of chocolate. I'm really trying hard to lose weight so I hope my hubby forgoes the chocolate and just gets me a card and maybe some flowers or even better, a gift certificate to The Stitch and Frame Shop. 

Because I know you need some inspiration, here are some new designs that will be arriving soon.

Welcome February!

It's hard to believe that it is already February. Hopefully, everyone has started a new project (or projects) for the year. If not, many new designs are on the way. Take a look at some listed below.

**COVID UPDATE** We are still experiencing supply line issues as many manufacturers, distributors and designers are not up to full production/staffing levels. Some items are taking weeks/months to get. We are doing our best to fill orders as soon as possible, but please note that circumstances may continue to delay shipping anywhere from a few days to a few weeks. 
We are processing orders by the date we receive them. We are asking for continued patience during this time and we are grateful for all the support to keep us going.

From Imaginating
Four very different designs. The ocean one is my favorite (probably because I really want to be at the beach).

Let's Boardwalk                            Winter Togetherness

Peace to All Sampler                  Winter Wonderland          

From Heaven and Earth Designs
Ok, I know that I have already stitched an owl but isn't this one adorable. I may never get this design stitched but it is so going in my stash. 


From Cottage Garden Samplings
The second design in the A Time For All Seasons series.
