Our inventory is growing! We thought we would share our items in case you didn’t realize the variety we had in stock!
Do you like embroidery? It coming is different forms from free form crewel to chart based cross stitch. We have supplies for that!
First off are threads. DMC is probably the best known brand. We carry the complete line of their solid cotton embroidery floss. We also have the box of the 16 newest colours! We also carry the complete variegated collection.
We have the complete line of linen floss, 12 colours in total. Because they are linen, the colours are softer and more muted than their cotton counterparts. They instantly give a vintage feel to your work!
Still in the flosses, we have a selection of the DMC Light Effects (known as Metallic threads once upon a time). This collection also includes Glow in the dark thread!
We also have a small selection Perle Cotton #8. It is commonly used for crochet and embroidery. If you are look for a colour we do not yet carry, let us know and we can bring it in for you.
Gaining popularity are the Aurifil threads. They are available in 4 different weights, 50WT, 40WT, 28 WT and 12WT. 12WT is the thickest weight and is great for embellishment and Sashiko and Red Work embroidery. It coming on a red spool.
Next up are frames. Having something to hold you fabric while you stitch makes everything a whole lot easier. We carry Q-Snap frames. They are made from PVC tubing making them lighter and more durable than other materials. We carry 4 different sizes, 6″ x 6″, 8″ x 8″, 11″ x 11″, 11″ x 17″ and 17″ x 17″. The tubing is the same size on all the frames, so you can mix and match them if you want to! If you already have one and you want only a spare pair to get a different size, we have those too! Or do you want to extend and existing 11″ frame to 14″ or a 17″ frame to 20″?
The next thing you might need is something to stitch on. We carry some evenweave cloth for cross stitch! We have precut pieces from 12″ x 18″ to 20″ x 24″ ranging from 11-count to 18-count in Antique White.
We also carry some 14 count Fiddler’s Cloth in Light Oatmeal. It is 60″ wide and you can buy it by 6″ increments. We have some 14 count Black Aida. It is 43″wide and can be purchased in 6″ increments too.
Flour Towels are great for other embroidery projects. They are gorgeous white towels measuring 30″ X 30″ (75cm X75cm). They are great canvases to personalize!
John James needles are lovely and made in England. We have a variety of sizes of these embroidery needles.
For cross stitch, we need Tapestry needles. They have a large eye and a blunt tip. We have 3 sizes available, sizes 22, 24 and 26.

Or maybe you prefer cross stitched roses! We now have 2 stamped quilt block pattern from Jack Dempsey Needle Arts. They are 18″ white blocks. There are suggested colours for the stitching on the package, but there is no reason you can’t switch those up to use you favorite DMC colours!
There is also machine embroidery! We have a few items available. Our needle selection includes needles for metallic threads in sizes 80/12 and 90/14. Regular embroidery needles in sizes 90/14.
We have some glow in the dark thread for machine embroidery too!
When machine embroidering, it is best to have a stabilizer with your fabric. There are a variety of different kinds depending on your fabric, how much embroidery is going to be done and what you are going to do with it. We carry the Sulky brand of stabilizers. You can also use these stabilizers with your hand embroidery!
We are working on expanding our inventory. If there is something we do not carry that you would like, let us know! We can look into special ordering it for you!
