2016 - Clubs

Ornament Club

We're forming an ornament club to begin in January. We plan to be working from the 2015 Just Cross Stitch Christmas Issue.... but not necessarily exclusively.
Our first planning session will be January 8th (Friday @6pm) and for daytime stitchers January 9th (Saturday @ 11am). More sessions once a month. Activities include stitching and finishing.
Call us to tell us to save you a seat on Friday evening or Saturday morning ! 304-722-0123


Little Sheep Virtues by Little House Needleworks

sheep virtue club

We are so excited to bring you this new series for 2013.  The Little Sheep Virtues will release one a month, January through December.  Each chart design contains the following. . . . . .at least one sheep (of course), a virtue (of course), an optional button and at least one heart.

The designs are mounted onto wool and finished as pillows.  Wool seems appropriate, don't you think?  There are two fabrics used throughout.  Starting with January and skipping every even month, the fabric is 30 count R&R Dark Chino.  Starting in February and skipping every odd month, the fabric used is 30 count Cocoa from Weeks Dye Works.  Special supplies are listed below.  The threads used throughout are DMC: 221, 420, 780, 822, 869, 924, 936, 3011, 3012, 3031, 3041, 3782, 3828, and ecru.

Each design is 61 x 61 and were designed to be stitched as individual pieces.  However I kept those of you in mind who like to stitch a series on a whole cloth so my advice is to stitch three across and four down.  Space them however you wish on whatever fabric you choose.  The dimensions will help you to calculate size.

Ornament Club

Our January Ornament of the Month Workshop will be on the 25th which is a Wednesday. Day class will be at 1pm in case we need to wait for the roads to clear. Evening class will be as soon as everyone can get here from work.
Our ornament was done on perforated paper and backed with wool felt. We omitted the button legs on our sample, too. The threads are pretty much the same. The kit includes all that you need except the black and the yellow beak color, but does include the red overdye if you wish.
Please let me know if you prefer the magazine version and what fabric you would like, or the perforated paper version on wool. The cost is the kit price. Each month there will be a different ornament.
