Too Much Wonderful Needlepoint from Dallas Market

I guess I should be glad I finished a stash project last night. That meant I had to look at my overflowing drawers of canvases for a new project. Happily this told me I really couldn’t add to the pile by buying new needlepoint from Dallas Market. But I can share the wonderful things I’ve […]

New Canvases from Dallas Market

There are plenty of great new canvases from Dallas Market. Today I’ll focus on canvases and arrange them, not by designer but by subject. Christmas & other Holidays I just loved Raymond Crawford’s new “trees” canvases. Against the background of a tabletop tree in a low bowl, you can have traditional ornaments on a green […]

Goodies at the “Best Needlepoint Market”

The “Best Needlepoint Market,” that’s what my friend Leigh (of Leigh Designs) calls it. She’s right. This small show is only a few years old, but it’s run by needlepointers for needlepointers. As a result many designers create new designs especially for the show and you’ll see many smaller designers who can’t afford to exhibit […]

A Different Stitch Sampler

I used to have a job where a flew across the country almost every week (and yes I got lots of needlepoint done). As I flew I looked down at the patchwork of fields and I would think “This would be a fantastic needlepoint sampler!” I guess Laura Perin thinks so too because this wonderful […]

Matching Solids for Coloris

Earlier this month I wrote about Mary Corbet’s excellent analysis of DMC’s new Coloris thread. A problem we often have with multi-color threads is finding the solid colors that match it. i know I have often found myself frustrated at this. Our frustration, in turn, affects our desire to use these threads. We think “If […]

More Summer 2016 Needlepoint Goodies

Coloris, A New DMC Thread

Coloris is a new multi-color floss from DMC that was introduced recently. It is only just starting to appear in shops now. In the information I read DMC didn’t give many details about this thread. Both that fact and that it might appear to compete directly with the company’s Color Variations line certainly confused me. […]

Winter Book Review

Little Shoppe Canvas Co., 2016, no ISBN Winter is a very different approach to a stitch dictionary. It’s very creative but it may not fit with your stitching style. In the Introduction, the authors say that the book is “an innovative spin on stitching shapes and base patterns.” The book delivers well on this promise, […]

High Cotton – Thread Review

High Cotton is a new five-strand cotton thread from The Point of It All Designs. It’s simply wonderful. Unlike floss it is almost matte and is very strong. Like many matte cottons it is also soft in the hand, something I really like. It comes 18 yards in a skein with 135 colors currently (more […]

White in Metallics

Originally posted 2011-08-29 07:22:15. Republished by Blog Post Promoter It used to be that if you wanted white in Kreinik metallics you used 032. That color, while white, has lots of translucent threads in it, so it tends to be rather sparkly and has flecks of other colors. A better, more clear white is 100 […]
