Welcome to our Shop Exclusives Page! We have so many great things in the shop that are special only to us. I've chosen a few to highlight here. ENJOY!
Bunny Boards & Bitty Bunnies!
Does your stitching basket or sewing case need a palette to hold a current project's thread collection? This simple rabbit outline, decorated with just a few 'scribbles' of definition is immediately recognizable as a cute bunny that would look great peeking out from a sewing case pocket! 5 Inches in height, and almost 3 inches in width, there are 10 numbered holes on her to attach working threads (or the leftovers from that special project that you store inside it's finished pocket.)
The Bitty Bunnies are an exact duplication in shape, but they measure a mere 2-3/8 x 1-1/4 inches. They include a (removable) clam-shell clip so you can attach them to scissors, a zipper pull on your tote bag, keys, just anywhere. Both sizes are really cute -- the larger Board does not have any other engraving than shown. The Bitty Bunnies have our web address on them, so you have us with you wherever you go! They come in assorted woods of light, dark, medium and a pretty natural red wood.
Knot a Pocket from Theresa Layman Designs
*An Elegant Way to carry your lipstick, keys, sunglasses, business cards, cell phone, I-Pod, Blackberry, travel drive, bubblegum, pet toad or whatever!*
Make this beautiful pocket (optional belt tab on the back) out of vintage brown and ivory herringbone weave, decorated with your exquisite Miniature Knotwork!!! The flap is decorated with tons of tiny French Knots -- a festive bluebird fluttering amidst his floral garden -- and features a magnetic closure so nothing is pulled or damaged when you actually open and close this when you USE and ENJOY it!!!
Teresa's complete kit walks you through her Knot class -- pics all over the place! She includes ALL the fabrics, templates, linings, magnets, everything is organized in there and beautifully presented to you. The finished Knotwork area measures 3 x 4-ish... the entire pocket measures approx 3 x 6 x 1-1/4 inches in size. Just beautiful, this is a very sophisticated-in-style piece... for the more-experienced stitcher!
A Silver Needle
from Shakespeare's Peddler
Theresa V from Shakespeare's Peddler dreamed up a cute little stitching sampler for us that was a bonus surprise at our 2011 Summer Stitching event! Exclusive to our shop, it's a slight thing -- approx 5 x 5 in size. Featuring 4 colors of Gentle Art Sampler Threads that are limited in edition -- none of the threads have joined that regular line -- so it's kind of fun the have them 'secretly!'
'A Silver Needle and Thread so fair'... is the verse, and there's plenty of room for you to add or sub some of your favorite stitching motifs in here. Offered as the chart, cut of 32ct Natural Linen, 4 complete GAST skeins and one DMC.
Miniature Scissor Blocks
OHhhh... we have the cutest miniature scissor blocks! Made from assorted woods, these little 1-1/2 x 2 x 2-3/4 chunks feature a slanted top, complete with ruler slot. Along with that slot, notice the larger hole near the top? That holds a pair of 3-1/2 to 4-inch embroidery scissors. Then, notice the two smaller holes? They store needles. Each of them as a tiny magnet in their bottom -- just enough to make your needles *cling* so if the block get knocked over, no needles errantly spill to the floor.
Not big, not heavy, just functional and cute! The slit can hold a small pattern, or one of our rulers or paddles that double as thread organizers. If you order multiples, we'll try to mix up your woods, but try to match ruler and organizer woods to blocks. All of these are just the coolest things!
4-Inch Wooden Ruler Thread Organizer
*Needlework soothes the soul and inspires the mind* is the advice offered on one side of these 4-inch thread organizers... while *The Silver Needle* is the other advice for good living on the other side! Measuring 1-1/2 inches x 4-1/2... your calibrated ruler includes 5 holes to loop threads for works in progress.
It slips into the slot of our miniature scissor block, so even if you have no threads looped on it, the ruler is still there... and it's stored neatly in your block. Pretty Handy!
3-Inch Hornbook Organizer
Even a smaller version of our 4-inch ruler... this is a 3-inch ruler, delivered in a hornbook-style shape. (A Paddle.) Each piece features 9 different holes to loop threads from a work in progress, and is personalized with Silver Needle's logo (which I am personally very attached to!)
Again, these fit into the slit of our Mini Scissor Block.
Round Palette Key Chain |
These are the CUTEST! A clam-shell clasp is ready to attach this rounded, traditional pallette shape to your scissors, tote bag, keys, whatever! 14 Little holes to tie threads into -- if you want -- this is really cutest just as a key ring!
It does feature our Silver Needle logo on it... you may already have one -- as a freebie from a Superbowl Sale order or Camp Wannasew Favor -- but you might want another!!! They are the cutest little things! And... again, we can match all the woods to blocks and rulers!
Stitching Tin Sets
TOO DARN CUTE! Check out these hand-painted stitching tins... made expecially for us... complete with matching wooden needle cases, needle threaders, and mini-magnets! Available in 6 different hand-painted designs, your 2 x 2 x 2-1/2 inch lightweight metal tin is painted on top with a charming design. Pop the lid to reveal a heavy 3/4 inch magnet set to hold patterns, scissors, anything you want. Next is a matching wired needle threader with a THIN, THIN wire fused into the 1-1/4 inch plastic handle -- small and strong enough for beading needles. Add the 2-1/4 inch long wooden hand painted needle case, and you have *one darn cute set of treasures!*
Choose between the Sewing Set -- floss skeins, the tape measure and tomato pin cushion design; a buzzing beehive scene, a garden cart surrounded by a blooming garden of flowers, or bussssy lady bugs flittering everywhere! I honestly don't know which set I like the best!!!
Presenting: The Bird Cage!
Announcing our Newest Just Nan Treat -- Exclusive to The Silver Needle!
The *Girls* are off to The Bird Cage Spa for their annual reunion! Affectionately known as the *Polka Dot Palace*, they are excited about their day of pampering in the Fine Feathers Salon! Maybe some new feather colors... the Bird Bath Showers, that special new fragrance, 'Wings' they're dying to try...!
Just Nan has created a charming 6 x 6-ish sewing case for us... full of Summer's bright pink, green and purple colors that I love so much! Your Bird Cage Case is stitched on 28ct Antique White and Khaki Newport Linen. (The taupe stripes are already woven into the fabric for you!) You'll see all the little birds chirping and scurrying everywhere among the lavender beaded 'flowers' ... and when you open your case, you'll find even more! There is a special pink and green painted and beaded Charm Garden pin -- *Ms Dotty Bird* -- exclusive to The Bird Cage that dresses the inside!
Next, you'll find one of Nan's special thread winders -- this one an elegantly enameled bluebird -- less than 2 x 2! There is room in your Bird Cage Case for a Flirty Birds Needle Slide and a pretty pair of scissors... (you probably have just the perfect ones already in your stash!) On the back... a little poem... 'Scissors and pins and needles that shine, Helping to make these stitches so fine.' You have room to add some thread rings and more winders if you wish... and after reading Nan's delightful little story about The Bird Cage Salon... you might want to add initials of stitching friends below a few of the birds!!!
Offered as a kit, The Bird Cage includes the chart (with alphabet for personalization) and Nan's little Spa Story, 2 cuts Newport Linen, Ms Dotty Bird, beads, pink and purple polka-dotted ribbons, green hand-dyed wool for scissor sheath, and Nan's enameled bluebird winder. You add the bits of DMC floss from your stash, as well as some favorite scissors. If you need a Flirty Birds Needleslide... they are available in pink, green or purple... so you'll have a big decision to make as to favorite color! Complete finishing instructions are included as well. So cheerful and quick to stitch, Nan insists that Pink, 'Slime Lime' and Purple are my signature colors... thus... the Perfect Palette for the Polka Dot Palace!!!
Introducing... Very Berry!
from Erica Michaels
Linda Stolz of Erica Michaels has designed an EXQUISITE wool strawberry... stitched on 30ct silk gauze!!! Designed to be a scissor fob or tiny pin cushion this little 2-1/2 x 1-3/4 confection is *way too pretty* to eat... and I'd never stick pins in mine!!! Here are all the details!
Stitched in Continental Stitch (just the first half of a Cross Stitch), your berry calls for 5 different shades of Gentle Art's hand-dyed Simply Wool -- you'll be stitching with one ply of thread. The stitched berries that wrap around the piece are little checkerboards of Mulberry and Buckeye Scarlet, the blossoms have hints of golden Brandy in them, and the leaves are a deep Blue Spruce, all against a Roasted Marshmallow background! A miniature strawberry patch on your Very Berry! Next, the berry top features matching Weeks Dye Works hand-dyed wool leaves!!!
Charted for regular stitching, you could do this on linen... but our exclusive kit contains 30ct silk gauze instead! (Bigger holes than linen -- NO KIDDING!) When you are finished with the stitching, the long side is joined into a cone-shape, and the top is drawn/gathered together, with tiny wool leaves attached to the top! Just darling!!!
Offered as the complete kit, we have included the chart, gauze, 8 complete skeins of Gentle Art's Simply Wool, Weeks Dye Works wool, and your needle. Complete assembly instructions are included, along with stitching tips for the gauze! I'm holding the precious little berry in my hands in some of our pics... you can see how petite it is, and how very special and unique! *Thank You, Linda* for designing something so awesome... just for The Silver Needle!
Presenting Merry Fifteen!
Nan Caldera has outdone herself, creating an enchanting 15-sided pin-cushion for The Silver Needle!!! Merry Fifteen is a delightfully intricate little piece -- it features 15 stitched panels - each measuring a mere 25 x 25 stitches. Snowflakes, angels, reindeer, candy canes, Santa, Rudolph, a snowman and holiday bird, a gingerbread couple and a tiny fir tree... all are gathered together... gracing all the different sides of the 4 x 2-1/2 stuffed pin cushion.
Frame each individual panel, make them into individual ornaments and fobs, or connect them together to make Nan's exquisite Biscornu-shaped cushion! Stitched on 28ct Natural opalescent Cashel linen... the lighter panels just glisten with the special metallic already woven throughout. The Ruby Red panels match *exactly* to Week's Dye Works Garnet thread color... so along with the DMCs you'll be using, this does include Garnet flosses and is joined together with Weeks #8 Perle of the same hand-dyed garnet color.
TONS of fun beads on here... I see antiqued reds, whites, golds and two different striped glass seed beads! One is a bold red and white stripe -- like a peppermint, and the other has the finest red and green filaments running through the glass. The center medallions are ornate antique gold pieces, one on each side. All of it is designed to showcase the special set of 5 Christmas Charmed Pins of Nan's. The ONLY set of Christmas Pins Nan will be producing... our Merry Fifteen sports the most delightful little things!
The Silver Needle has commissioned Just Nan for Merry Fifteen so it is a Shop Exclusive to us! Our 2009 Just Nan Celebration!!!!! Merry Fifteen is offered as a complete kit. Except for a few DMC flosses from your stash, you'll receive charts, embellishments, pics, assembly instructions, 28ct linen cuts of Natural/Opalescent and Ruby Wine, the necessary Week's Dye Works Garnet flosses and matching perles, the Kreinik #4 Metallic Braid, needles, and of course, the set of five of those absolutely exquisite ***Hand-Made-By-Nan*** (EVERY single one!) glass pins!!!
I just LOVE the tiny details on this... the gingerbread people are only 17 stitches high... the little Santa reminds me of our JN Silver Needle Santa ornament a few years ago. The trees are luscious -- gold metallic garland! The reindeer are precious and so is the little snowman! I know Nan has been assembling our pins for months... she was making 100 pins each night... we keep count via periodic phone conversations!!! I don't know HOW all of this comes out of her creative head... I'm not going to ask questions!!!
My only job is to *ENJOY! * Thank-You Nan!!!
Silver Needle's 3-Inch Ruler Magnet
Just something fun we'll have for a while, till they're gone... this is a bar magnet that has been painted with our shop name, and a little stitching cabin nestled in the woods! We had them done in honor of our Camp Wannasew Stitching Weekends this fall!
The magnet is painted with 1-inch increments, so it really is a 3-inch measure. Your stitching board would love one of these!
Cool little butcher block wooden scissor holders, these are just like miniature knife blocks! Our Camp Wannasew Caretakers have been dabbling in woodworking... and during Camp one spring, discovered we had a need for these... and presto! These are the results of their talents! Measuring approx 2 inches wide, and 3 inches high, each features two rectangular holes for scissors, and one round one for a laying tool or seam ripper (even the stylus for your sewing machine computer!). There is even a magnetic disc recessed into the right side to hold needles! Anyway, most 3 to 4-inch embroidery scissors fit the openings and stay perched ready for you to reach. Ours is pictured with two different scissors, along with one of our pewter laying tools. Very cool, very handy, and really quite a unique little gadget... these will make great gifts!!!
Announcing: The Town Square!
from Forty Cross Stitch Designers
A darling set of 40 tiny shops, businesses and churches that together, make up an awesome Town Square and Village!!! A collaboration between different designers and vendors at our Summer 2006 Wholesale Needlework Market... everyone got together, and designed a particular building as part of the overall village.
I can't remember off the top of my head who did what... but I do remember that Shepherd's Bush had a Honey Shop, Mosey 'n Me did the bookstore, Crescent Colours had the saloon, Lizzie Kate did the Candy Shop, Sweetheart Tree had a Sweet-shop... there is a knitting shop, quilt shop, frame shop (East Side Moulding did that one!), a general store, haberdashery, a button shop -- done by Just Another Button Co!. The town hall, jail, fire station... Bent Creek did the fish shop... I could go on and on!
Anyway, offered as a set of 'freebie cross stitch charts' to those shops attending the show... Silver Needle is following Elegant Stitch's idea ofloading all of these charts onto one CD for you... so you can have them all in one place, and print any or all... as many times as you wish! (We weren't sure our copier was up to all those thousands of copies anyhow... and nobody jumped up to baby-sit it while they ran!)
Because of the time and effort involved in producing the set and duplicating the CDs, we have them available for $5.00 each... with a Silver Needle purchase. No limit to the number of CDs... good inexpensive stitcher surprises here! Ready to print in .jpg format... this is such a treat!
Several of the designers had special embellishments on their houses... we have most all of it, so when you get your Village, and decide which you're going to stitch... you can order any necessary fabrics, threads, buttons and charms from us! Sorry we don't have a composite pic of the whole Village... nobody had stitched one for the show... but enjoy several of the individual pics we do have!
Don't miss the special sterling that has been released for the Shepherd's Bush and Bent Creek sections!
Your Summer Stitching Cabin in the Woods
Designed by Brooke Nolan
Finished by Mona Bost
Isn't this the perfect stitching cabin in the woods??? We designed this Secret Needle Night Kit as kind of a 'room sign' to hang on the door to your stitching/sewing room... kind of a warning to all of the fun that awaits inside your haven!!! Stitched on 10ct Betsy Ross Linen, the cabin is stitched with #5 Perle Cotton.
Trees are Weeks over dyed perle, and the little toad is Fyrewerks metallic. We've included your trusty puppy dog, the metal scissor and spool charms to grace your cabin, all the little flosses to add to your stitching basket, and the golden sliver of the moon! Offered as a complete kit of chart, fabric, threads, needles and embellishments, Camp Wannasew finishes approx 5 x 5. Finishing Kit includes all materials and instructions to construct Camp Wannasew into a stand-up easel.
Pumpkin Patch, a Silver Needle exclusive
from Knotted Tree
A plump trio of pumpkins awaits your needle! Designed exclusively for The Silver Needle by Knotted Tree... we've taken our little chart and stitched it two different ways, in case you can't make up your mind which count of fabric you like best!!! Jamie came to visit the shop this past fall, and presented us with this darling design!
We've chosen 10ct Betsy Ross Linen and Weeks Dye Works #5 hand-dyed perle cottons for one version, and Weeks 35ct Straw Linen and their flosses for the other version. The bigger one measures approx 3-1/2 x 6, while the smaller one measures a mere 3-1/2 x 2-1/4! (Add 1/2 an inch to each side for total finished wedge size.)
Mona has made hollow wedge stand-up finishing kits for each... so yours will look just like these!!! Easy stitching, yummy colors, a season that is 9 months away (so you have plenty of time to stitch 'em!) Offered in complete kits, we've included the linen, threads (some whole, some partial skeins), chart and embellishments. If you order the finishing kit... it'll have the backing fabrics, necessary pre-cut boards, hand-twisted cording for the edges, Mona's pre-tied wire-ribbon bow and assembly instructions.
Our little Pumpkin Patch is precious!!! And our gracious thanks to Jamie -- you'll find it only here, at The Silver Needle!!!
Victorian Mourning Pins
AKA Little black stick pins! I'd never seen these before, till they appeared in Netty Nightshade's Pumpkin Furniture!!! (Any good stitcher or seamstress has pins and needles stuck in her furniture!)
Presented in a clear dish with a screw-top lid, 150 black straight pins measuring 1 inch x .85mm are nestled inside. Perfect for Halloween pin cushions and sewing cases, or something very 'antiquy'... they have a flat, matte black finish that matches our black scissors.
Secret Needle Night
These are delightful little designs we create every month, available as complete kits. We mail them right to you for only $17.50! Each is seasonal, full of cool threads, fun fabric, and neat embellishments. Very cute, and quick to stitch... they are monthly Limited Editions, that are a trademark of our shop!
Check out the collection and learn about our automatic monthly program!
Seasonal Swirls by Heart in Hand
Here's a cute set of 4 seasonal designs... tiny things... finishing only 2 1/2" square on 32ct. Stitched entirely in overdyeds, they're very colorful, and each ones features two special stitches. We've embellished them all with a Mill Hill glass Treasure or two, something perfect for the season. These were a special release during some of Cecelia's classes, so are un-published charts! The set of charts is available with the purchase of the glass Treasures: $12.75. The frame we've shown them in, is actually four small ones that we picked up locally and nailed together! They'd be fun all in a long row, as well. Be creative! So cheerful, enjoy them!
A super-duper thin wire in melted into this plastic threader, securely attached to thread teeny needles, perfectly! Used in quilting, beadwork, heirloom sewing and fine needlework, the super-fine, diamond-shaped wire is designed for threading 'Betweens #12,' 'Sharps #11 and 12,' Milliners #11, and Beading #10 & 12. Absolutely wonderful... you'll want these to keep in every needlecase you own! Ours are packaged 2 to a pack, in a clear, protective plastic case, which includes an outer sleeve. Really cool!
A great all-around needle threader... these will thread Tapestry needles as well as many others. The durable design features a wire that is fused into the plastic housing, along with a recessed cutting blade on the opposite end! There is even a small hole provided in case you want to attach it to a favorite chatelaine or project! Ours are packaged in pairs in a protective plastic sleeve and case. Very handy!
The heavy-duty version of our other two threaders, this one is perfect for Tapestry and Chenille needles. Used for needlepoint, cross-stitch, hardanger and embroidery, it's perfect for perle cottons, yarn, ribbons and specialty threads (like some of the heavier Rainbow Gallery ones!). The square design of the threader allows the thread to 'spread out' as it passes through the eye of the needle, so there is much less stress, (and less breakage later on!) It features a recessed cutting blade, as well as a hole for attachment to a chatelaine or sewing case. Packaged by the pair in a wonderful clear plastic protective sleeve... they slip into a clear case for extra protection.
The Threader Collection
A trio of needle threaders, each with a specific use. Specially packaged for The Silver Needle in a handy, clear storage sleeve. $6.75 pkg.
Ultra-Fine: for quilting and beading needles.
All Purpose: a good general use threader with a built-in cutter.
Heavy-Duty Threader: for larger threads and delicate fibers, too. Also has a built-in cutter.
