(For pictures of Stitched Models Click Here)

We stock hundreds of quality painted canvases, pre-worked  needlepoint canvas, and cross stitch designs. We try to be a comprehensive shop for needlepoint, Hardanger, and cross stitch with something FOR ALL BUDGETS. For needlepoint kits, we focus on kits using Appleton wools since we carry the yarn in our shop. We also will take any design and custom design you a kit from the numerous threads we have available. In the shop we also provide complete printed catalogs from numerous design companies for our customers to browse and make selections.

Our general philosophy is that we want you to be pleased with your completed project; we also realize that people stitch for different purposes. If you want to create a fun gift on a budget we will be happy to assist you; if you want to create an heirloom piece, we will also be delighted to assist you in the selection of the appropriate threads and finishing.
