Our Retired Limited Editions from Our FIRST Year of The Stitching Circle

Last Year's Circle Designs... sorry, all sold out!

I am sharing our first set of treats here... just to show you how totally cool they all were! ***ALL ARE RETIRED AND SOLD OUT. WE HAVE NO MORE, AND CANNOT MAKE MORE. *** (you might be able to find a few on the Secondary Market... pay attention to 'partial kits' or missing SN Treats!
  • Blackbird Designs -- A Patchwork Pin Keep. We had The Glasshopper make us special flower and leaf hand-turned Lampwork Glass pins for each cushion. SO elegant!
  • Chessie & Me -- Pumpkin Pals. Linda's charming paper box design, with a mini wool needleroll inside, the box was included, two different fabric choices, and a special pumpkin needle threader we had made.
  • Jeannette Douglas -- Patchwork Friendship -- Jeannette's was charted BOTH ways -- Cross Stitch AND a special stitches version -- ALL delicious silks in hers. The Silver Needle Gals made 3-inch fused dichroic glass ort dishes with matching glass needle minders to go with this, and we included luscious chenille trim for the cushion.
  • Shepherd's Bush -- Heart of My Heart -- Teri hand-dyed us ribbon for their edge treatment, Jill Rensel made an exclusive mat... and we had 6-inch magnetic rulers hand-painted with sheep and 'I Love Stitching' on them! Very Shepherd's Bushy, we think!
  • Lizzie Kate -- Linda made is a three-piece set -- cushions and fobs -- we included baby ball fringe trim, the backing fabric, cute buttons... and a darling hand-crocheted pink flower tape measure to match the colors in her cute set.
FINALLY... As your finale treat... we had coffee mugs made with a tiny bit of each of the five designs printed around it! There wasn't much left in the kit budget for super-duper high quality mugs -- so they aren't dishwasher safe -- but they are TOO CUTE! Everyone received one... but only after 268 of them came in damaged and we had to have them re-made!!!
We DO have a few mugs left... so you can get them now - till we run out for good.

Anyway, This was our first A Little Help From my Friends Stitching Circle Line-Up.
We loved it... and plan on making our second Round as special as the first!!!

Baby Tool Tray! - click for more Baby Tool Tray!
Wayne-The-Wood-Guy putters in his studio daily -- and comes up with the coolest little wooden trinkets sometimes! This is a miniature needle tray complete with a magnet in the bottom. 2-1/2 inches long, 1-1/2 inches wide and an inch high... it is the perfect size for a couple dozen M & M's, a few pieces of hard candy, the buttons and embellishments for your current stitching project... or those needles!

When you turn over your bitty tray... there on the bottom... is The Silver Needle's name! (cute stitch group favors, fun wrapper for bitty gifts, and a great portion-control device for those M & M's!)

Merry Fifteen... finished into cubes, a Silver Needle Exclusive from Just Nan - click to see more Recognize This?
It's our Just Nan Merry 15 Biscornu -- RE-ARRANGED!

Here's inspiration to help you think outside the *biscornu* box! Our awesome Merry 15 by Just Nan finishes into a really cute pin cushion... but if you don't want to stitch all 15 sides of it... choose just a few and make little cubes out of them! Here, we chose 9 of the 15 bitty 2 x 2 designs.

We stitched them individually... made individual little cubes... and tied them together! You could do 3 cubes, you could do 4... The pattern comes with a gorgeous set of 5 different hand-painted and beaded counting pins... and you could add those to the bow-toppings of individual cubes or little stuffed ornaments if you wanted. You could even do all 15 -- more than one time each -- and make tiny cushions that could congregate in a pretty Christmas basket! Basically... this is the neatest set of small designs that you can do a lot with!!!!

Merry Fifteen, a Silver Needle Exclusive from Just Nan - click to see more 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.

Merry Fifteen, a Silver Needle Exclusive from Just Nan - click to see more 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!
  • A Vintage Angel -- glazed with glitter -- featuring a star halo, she's perched atop frosted white beads and a red fire crystal base bead.
  • Evening Star -- Embellished with a smaller beaded star medallion, another fire crystal and opalescent pearl base.
  • Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer -- his tiny nose REALLY IS painted red!
  • Snowflake -- Frosted white and silver, this lacy flake features a gold finding base, and a green fire crystal!
  • Bird -- My Personal Favorite -- this tiny bird features red and green painted decorations on both of his sides and tail!!!

  • Merry Fifteen, a Silver Needle Exclusive from Just Nan - click to see more 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!!!

    Announcing: Pumpkin Mouse at Frightmare House!
    Our Fall 2016 Silver Needle/Just Nan Exclusive Limited Edition Kit!!!

    Pumpkin Mouse at Frightmare House from Just Nan Get ready for spooky Halloween fun and folly -- Nan has made us another charming house for Lindy Mouse -- and this time she's dressed in her pumpkin costume greeting her Party Guests!

    In the little village of Forevermore a spooky place called Frightmare House opens its doors every Halloween. The house is brilliant purple and shaped like a fat little pumpkin. The residents hang strings of twinkling orange lights to prepare for the scary sound and light shows they host for the neighbors and visitors each night! Monsters lurk in every room -- and Lindy Pumpkin Mouse is up on the roof braving the night to see it all!

    There is a mummy in the basement guarding the family crypt -- a Just Nan Needle Slide. Fraidy Frog, a hissing snake, the Dangling Spider Dance Company, Cyril the Bat along with 4 assorted and wild monsters AND the rat/mouse squad are all here... glaring at you through the windows of the house!

    LIMITED IN EDITION... Frightmare House is stitched on Weeks Dye Works 32ct Peoria Purple linen using 16 colors of DMC floss. It assembles easily (hand-whip-stitch edges together) and finishes approx 3 x 3 -- with the roof and basement measuring a mere 2 x 2 each. The Pumpkin Mouse is stitched on Weeks 32ct Pumpkin Linen and she finishes a bit smaller than the rest of Nan's stitched mice. (She is actually the same size as our Charming House of Lindy Mouse mouse!) There is a magnet in the bottom of the house to cling to the 1 x 2 inch Mummy's Crypt Needle Slide in the basement... and all 6 sides of Frightmare House feature your stitching!

    The kit which we plan to ship this September includes Nan's exclusive chart -- full color cover with 12 inside pages of stitch guides, piece placement and finishing instructions!!! Peoria Purple and Pumpkin linen cuts, glass beads, Cyril the Bat charm, a sterling silver spider charm, base cardboard and magnet to hold the crypt slide, that darling Just Nan Mummy Needle Slide, the mouse ornament tail hanger, her fairy button base, and Nan's imaginative story about every single little window scene on the house! You can see black pins on the roof of the house -- we are putting our black matte finish Mourning Straight Pins up there!!!!!

    Taking RESERVATIONS NOW for September delivery. So darn cute, colorful and creative, Frightmare House is FULL of Nan's personality and the charm she adds to her Halloween designs. I am flattered that she named that little Pumpkin Mouse for me -- I love Halloween parties, and I WOULD be out in the yard greeting my arriving guests (probably just not on the roof!)

    Bunny Boards & Bitty Bunnies! -- click here to see more! 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.

    Miniature Scissor Blocks -- click here to see more! 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 -- click here to see more!
    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 -- click here to see more! 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 -- click here to see more! 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!

    Wooden Snowman Mini Wooden Thread Palette -- click here to see more! Wooden Snowman Mini Wooden Thread Palette
    This little guy measures approx 2-3/4 x 1-1/4 inches in size, and has 12 holes for threads. We may not always have him in stock... but we'll try! He features our logo and website in teeny letters on his tummy.

    Wooden Time to Stitch Watch Wooden Thread Palette -- click here to see more! Wooden Time to Stitch Watch Wooden Thread Palette
    I love this antiqued pocket watch design! 2-1/4 wide by 3-inches high, it again features 12 holes tor a few of your threads. Another treasure that comes in and out of our doors -- enchanting! Our shop logo is featured on that back of this -- very small, engraved just like the design on the front.

    Webmaster's Note: We have some of these delightful wooden goodies for you on Accessories, Gifts & Gadgets, page 4 and more on our Exclusives page. Check out both pages to see them all!

    Very Berry from Erica Michaels - click for more Very Berry from Erica Michaels - click for more
    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!!!

    Very Berry from Erica Michaels - click for moreVery Berry from Erica Michaels - click for more 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!

    Sweet Honey from Shepherd's Bush -- click to see lots more
    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! Sandie's Sweet Shop

    Anyway, offered as a set of 'freebie cross stitch charts' to those shops attending the show... Silver Needle is following Elegant Stitch's idea of loading 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!

    Cross Stitch Shop 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!

    Victorian Mourning Pins - click to see more 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.

    Ultra-Fine (Beading) Threader
    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!

    Ultra-Fine Threader

    All-Purpose Threader
    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!

    All-Purpose Threader

    Needlework Threader
    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.

    Needlework Threader

    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. $7.50 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.
