News Updates–Stitching Supplies, Classes and More are coming!
February 16, 2015
Here’s the scoop on the Hands on Design “A Year in Chalk” (Block of the Month Club): This is stitched on 30 count Gunmetal fabric from Weeks Dye Works. We have it in and it is just gorgeous. Susie is working on the January 2015 design. It will be available as an automatic (two every other month). There are two options to order this one, depending on the fabric … Option 1: Chart/2 skeins of Gentle Art ($9.75/month) and the fabric in one piece -1/2 yard ($49.50). Option 2: Chart/2 skeins of Gentle Art ($9.75/month) and the fabric – 9″ x 9″ serged ($6.08/month). Chalkboard is available for $10.50 and we will send you a copy of the instructions for finishing each month as a “thank you.” Let us know which one you want for this fun project!
February 10, 2015
2015 is off and running! The Artists Collection trunk show was a huge success, so we will be doing more trunk shows….we have scheduled The Painted Pony trunk show in August 2015 and we will offer the same deal as this time….20% off the canvas and 20% off the threads to go with the purchased canvas. We are also looking at some trunk shows for cross stitchers and we hope everyone will be happy….so stay tuned!
February 16 is Presidents’ Day and we will be open to celebrate! We will open early at 10:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. on that day for all the customers who get that day off! We’re here to help you find whatever you need or want.
A new promotion that Susie and Rose want to try is ”Designer of the Month” and to celebrate we will give you 10% off that special designer. This month (February) is “Blackbird Designs” and we have a good stock in the shop. If you can’t get to the shop, just e-mail and we will be glad to ship it to you. This offer is limited to stock on hand.
We continue to work on getting items on the website, but it seems like the beta testing is giving our IT gray hair. We have now topped 50,000+ items, so I bet we will have what you need. By putting it all on the computer, we will strive to have everything in stock so you don’t have to wait; but, sometimes it will be a day or two to get your order processed (except for fabric and that is always a hold out). We enjoy sending you what you need or want, so give us a call to get everything at our “One Stop Shop/Website” for your stitching pleasures!
What’s coming up in 2015?
New classes for the first quarter of 2015 have been posted, so check it out if you live in the Denver, Colorado area. We are so excited about the new classes and new teachers!
The popular Needle Index Book (blue cover) is back in stock! For a while it had been discontinued, but due to popular demand, it has come back into production. Order yours now!
During the month of January, we will be hosting The Artists Collection which will showcase the designers: Heartstrings by Pat Thode (Stitch Guides Included); Hummingbird Designs by Catherine Blair; Mile High Princess by Brenda Palmer (Limited Stitch Guides Included); Shear Creations by Beth Robertson and Suzanne Howren (Stitch Guides Included) and Bees Knees by Barbara Bond. A special discount of 20% will be offered during January 2015 and will be offered for any canvases in stock or any canvas you want ordered from The Artists Collection PLUS threads for the canvases! Check their website at www.artistscollection.net if you are not close to our shop to see all the wonderful canvases! Just be sure to mention the special discount when you call with your order.
Below is the Hands on Design “A Year in Chalk” (Block of the Month Club) preview that starts in January 2015 and it will be available as an automatic (two every other month). Here’s a sneak peak! It will be stitched on Weeks Dye Works Gunmetal fabric. It will be added as soon as we have confirmed prices, but for chart/fabric/threads we are estimating $17.50 per month.
December 2014 -
We wish you and yours a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! Thank you for a great 2014 and we always look forward to comments and suggestions to improve the website! We have been so busy, that not much time has allowed us to keep up on our announcements. That will be our New Year’s Resolution to try and do more communications. Still trying to finish up all the items to put on the website and have now hit 48,000 items. If you can’t wait for the website, call us and we will be glad to take your order over the phone.
We still have a few spaces left in our class “Beginning Canvas” with National Teacher, Caela Tyler starting January 4, 2015 (four class sessions). If you want to join in, December 31 is the last signup day. We have this listed in the Class section with three color wave options. Don’t miss this opportunity if you live close to the shop. Caela is a phenomenal teacher and is we are so lucky to have her teaching for us!
We are taking kit orders for Carolyn Mitchell’s ANG Online Class “Off the Beaten Path”. We are offering a total kit (beads/crystals, full skeins of threads, canvas and stretcher bars) for Version 1 (which is one piece of canvas) or Version 2 (which is three pieces of canvas). This is also listed in the Class section. The total kit has a special discount, but if you only need beads/crystals, threads, canvas, stretcher bars, etc., please contact the shop by e-mail or give us a call and we will still help you out! We are trying to gear up to start mailing kits out on January 1, 2015.
September, 2014 -
We’ve been hard at work updating all the items in the shop, so you haven’t heard from us in a few months. We’re at 40,000 plus items and trying to get everything in the computer so we can eventually move it to the website. Remember, you can call us to place an order if you don’t find the exact item on the website with all the details….the details and pictures are coming, but we do try to have everything in stock ready to ship within a day or two!
We have been updating and adding more classes….we invite you to check out the newest one: November 8, 2014 at 1:00 p.m. for Beginning Temari with Jim Samson. Jim has made hundreds of these lovely Temaris. There will be a maximum of 5-6 students as you will learn how to do the Temari in this one session with all of Jim’s quick tricks and short cuts to make this fun. Jim is a popular teacher, so sign up quick!
February, 2014 -
We will be listing “new” designs from market, as we stock the shop with all the exciting and fun designs! If you don’t see what you want, just call or e-mail and we probably have it or can get it.
The Paternayan Persian thread continues to come in with new colors and all colors being in stock by the end of February 2014, hopefully, but the date keeps changing.
Furr, Fuzz and Fun (kid mohair and silk-25 yards) are new threads from Planet Earth. These are great for animals in nine colors with more planned!

January 1, 2014 – Happy New Year 2014!!! We hope everyone had a safe and wonderful day off! And we’re ready to jump in full steam ahead! We continue to get new fabrics, books and exciting new charts in for your stitching pleasure. The Paternayan Persian thread continues to come in with new colors and all colors being in stock by February 2014.
Special Note: We will continue to do the “Home Sweet Home” as the demand has not stopped. It does take a little time to get everything together, but our price can’t be beat! When we do several at a time, we can keep the price lower than pulling the items one kit at a time. So don’t delay if you are thinking about the “Home Sweet Home” kit. So the price will continue status quo for now!
Susie has already stitched the first part for Frosty Forest, so come into the shop and take a look at the Racoon! He is so cute!
Be sure to check out all the new classes for 2014! They are all listed under the “Classes and Events Special Registration.” We have some new and fun classes for 2014! If there is something special you would like to learn, let us know! We’ll find a great teacher to start a class.
We would also like to say “thank you” to Marti for bringing in her new puppy for a visit. All the ladies enjoyed playing and holding this adorable pup! We are a dog-friendly store and invite all pups in for a visit….as long as they are well behaved!
December 1, 2013 – Thank you to everyone who helped make “Shop Small Business” such a success this past weekend! If you didn’t get a chance to come in, you still have the whole month of December to stop by and see what’s new. We are consistently adding new products (Petite Scissors, Mill Hill Kits); new threads (Burmilana, Sea Grass, Floche, Paternayan, Cosmo) and new charts/designers (Filigram, Tempting Tangles, MTV Designs, Seba, Wiehenburg Designs) and a whole lot more! We are ordering painted canvases and find playing with all the threads so much fun!
The Country Cottage – Frosty Forest (9-month series) - #1-Racoon Cabin has arrived and we have the chart, button and fabric. If you have signed up, it’s ready to be picked up. We still have a few available if you still want to join in, give us a call or send a quick e-mail.
Little House Needleworks – Calendar Girls (12-month series) is due to be released mid-December. Sign-ups are still being taken if you want to join in on this one!
Inspirations #80 just arrived today, so they will be shipping the first of the week. They have outdone themselves on this issue.
We are also happy to announce a new specialty teacher for canvas: Janet Gebow. She will also be available (by appointment) to help you with your painted canvases to suggest threads and even write a stitch guide for your project. Janet is fun, knowledgeable and enjoys helping you with your canvas projects.
We will try to post the new classes coming up for 2014, but here’s a sneak peak: Janet will be doing an Introduction to Canvas on January 4, 2014 (2:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m.) to give an overview of what Canvas is and how much fun it can be. Starting January , Janet will also be teaching Beginning/Intermediate Canvas (5 sessions). Additional Open Stitching will be available at No Charge! New classes for 2014 will be listed under “Classes and Special Events Registration.” See what’s coming up for 2014 !!
We have had more requests for the Home Sweet Home kits, so we will hold the group rate through December, but January 1, 2014, the price will be going up.
November 18, 2013 - Heads up for Black Friday! We will be opening early – 10:00 a.m. to help everyone for the start of their holiday shopping (for your friends or yourself)! Let us know what you want for the Holidays!
The inventory for the shop and the website are getting closer to being done and having everything “dumped” on the website. We hit 30,000 items this weekend so we are really excited about getting all those threads, charts, canvases and the list goes on….onto the website for your shopping pleasure! In the meantime, don’t hesitate to e-mail or call us if you don’t see what you need. We probably already have it in stock!
NEWS FLASH: We are finishing up the last “Home Sweet Home” kits for threads/fabrics. Thank you for everyone’s patience as we were overwhelmed with orders for this project. Hopefully, when you get your package, the wait was worth it all! If you still want one in time for Christmas at the group rates we have posted, let us know before the end of November. December 1, 2013 the price will go up to reflect pulling all the threads/fabrics individually. So get your kits while they are at the lower group rate.
September 16, 2013 – It’s here! The new “Home Sweet Home” book has arrived and we are processing the orders in which they were received. We hope to have them all out soon. The kits are also coming along, so start watching for them to arrive.
We also have received the Lizzie Kate new Halloween Mystery Sampler and still have some available. Let us know which type of fabric you want and we can ship that right out.
Some other great news! Paternayan Persian yarns are now being produced again and we have all 150 colors that are now available. We are on the list to receive the other 300+ colors as soon as they are available. They are luscious, so let us know if you need some. The color names/numbers are the same as the old Paternayan, nothing has changed.
We are also special ordering painted canvases; if you’re looking for some, let us order them for you. Our prices are reasonable and we have now been tagged by our local customers with the name of ”the thread mecca” in Denver. It’s a wonderful compliment! If you’re looking for any special threads, just call or e-mail us! We ship all over the world.
July 30, 2013 – We received an update from our distributor about the “Home Sweet Home” book due out the end of July…..
”I’ve just received word back from the buyer, who’s indicated that unfortunately the shipment was delayed until 7/22/13, coming out of Shanghai. Which means that this shipment now is not set to arrive until the middle of August. I will keep you posted from here.”
So it looks like the middle of August before we will be able to ship those pre-orders. Stay tuned!
June 13, 2013 - We just received a nice note from Olga in Russia and just had to post it! We do ship all over the world!
Well, today I received a paсkage! I can’t belive it’s so fast! I’m glad that delivering method was Ems Express. Russian Post and customs can extend delivering for months.
I want to say thank you so much for my dream came true! I spent a lot of time scrutinizing threads! It’s so amazing! Every thread is so different and awesome! I’m so exciting! Everything is very carefully packed, thank you for great work! I’m really happy that I find your store!
Thank you, Olga
June 4, 2013 – A BIG Thank You to Mary Corbet and her blog “Needle’n Thread” for the nice commentary on our website. We hope she will come by and visit our shop when she gets a chance! We have now set up a special tab “LIMITED DEALS” that has all the Home Sweet Home information listed on it, including a way to pre-order the re-release of the book in July 2013 (you will not be charged for the book until it is mailed)! We are now offering two kit options: ”Threads, Beads, Charms and Sequins Kit” and a “Fabrics Kit” for the Home Sweet Home. We’ve tried to detail what each Kit includes under the tab for the kits, but if you have questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us!

Inspirations #78 is on it’s way….sign up now for one issue or get a better rate for subscribing! Our prices cannot be beat! Check under “New Products”!
We have also ordered the new Little House Needleworks Mystery Sampler (3 parts starting in June; kit includes the 3 parts, Weeks Dye Works floss and your choice of 30 or 35 count of Weeks Dye Works Straw linen). This is also listed under the “New Products” for either the 30 or 35 count fabric.
April 4, 2013 – If you are looking for the “Home Sweet Home” threads, beads or charms….we have the WHOLE kit here! We have found ALL the threads, beads and charms for this kit, so don’t let anyone say they’re not available…they are here! There are only a couple of the items listed that are no longer available (we called the manufacturer and verified this information). Contact us if you are interested in getting the WHOLE kit or just need any of the other threads you’re having trouble finding! We also have now heard the book will be reprinted and out by the end of July 2013! It’s a gorgeous piece and worth your time and effort to stitch.
March 10, 2013 – Have you started noticing new items and new categories that are being added? With the number of new sign-ups and orders, the word is getting out about our new website. Keep watching as we are just about ready to dump (for lack of a more sophisticated computer lingo) all the items from our store computer into the website! As of today, we have 19,000 items ready to dump! We will still have pictures to add and tweaking to do, but we are excited about getting everything on the website. If you have suggestions for us, please feel free to contact us….we love the feedback!!

Our hours are Monday – Friday (Noon to 5:00 p.m.) and Saturday (10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.). If those hours don’t work, just give us a call. There is usually someone here outside those hours. We also have added two new ladies to help with your customer service and finishing ideas. We welcome JoBeth Wisehart who has been stitching most of her life and we will post some of her finished projects so we can show you how many ideas she has for helping you down the final stretch of finishing your stitched project. Her work is exquisite and prices are reasonable. She is usually around on Saturdays, so stop by and say “hi!”
November 21, 2012 – Check out all the new books that have been added this week! They have been put into categories so you can find what you want with ease.
