The shop recently added knitting into it’s offerings... yarns include Plymouth, Barocco, South West Trading Company, Northwest Yarn, Schaefer, Red Barn Yard, JoJo Land, and Classic Elite. In lots of funky colors and textures because I only buy what dazzles me! Knitting needles are available from ChiaGoo, Plymouth, Hiya Hiya, and Laurel Hill (they are the ones that make the cool square needles).

Knitting books and patterns: Vogue Knitting, Knit Simple, Noni Handbag Patterns and the cool handles and clutches that go with it, patterns by Interweave, Classic Elite Yarn, Ann Norling, and many more. Look for the shop on Ravelry.

I have a very limited amount of needlepoint, featuring a local artist and some counted needlepoint charts (canvas also available). For a large selection of needlepoint and needlepoint fibers and canvases, please visit The Black Sheep. They are worth the trip and Anne is excellent =)

I offer custom framing and framing needlework is my specialty. I would love to help you get your needlework on the wall. Visit the store for loads of examples, I treat every piece as if it were my own. I use only acid free products, and conservation glass is available to protect your work and give it the prominence it deserves in your home. Bring in your piece for a free estimate.
