NEW BOOKS!

We have 3 new books in stock  – two of which are brand new releases!

SECRETS   by June McKnight
This wonderful book shares a wealth of information ("secrets") that June has gathered over the decades of her involvement in the needlework industry.  As an example, June gives advice on how to choose that" special"," well-painted" canvas and how to avoid creative pitfalls.  As a bonus, all copies in the store have been autographed by June.

THREADS: A Needle Necessity  by Jane Evans & Liv Weiss
This new volume gives information on thread substitutions, the number of ply to use for various threads on different canvas meshes, whether a thread is easy to work with or slippery and much more!

PAINTED CANVAS EMBELLISHMENTS  by Carole Lake & Michael Boren

Do you already have the most fabulously painted canvas ever and all you need are some ideas for embellishments?


STORE EXCLUSIVE
MICHIGAN SANTA
Our very first store exclusive is Michigan Santa from artist Shelly Tribbey!  This hand painted canvas features many things that are unique to Michigan such as our state bird - the robin, state tree - the white pine, state flower - apple blossom and the Mackinac Bridge.  And included for Michiganders or visitors to Michigan who enjoy vacationing “up north” are a loon, a lighthouse, cherries and tulips.




This Michigan Santa is painted on 18 mesh canvas and measures 6x6 inches.  It finishes up beautifully as an inset pillow or as a 3-dimensional Michigan cherry - see the above image.

This canvas may be purchased alone or kitted with a stitch guide and thread pack.

Contact us via email or call 248 645-1180 to order your special memory of Michigan!
