The Silver Needle, Fine Needlework Materials, everything for cross stitch



This is a selection of fun fobs and needlecases... designed by two gals in Atlanta who love both beadwork and stitching! Available as complete individual kits, I chose a few designs at Market that were my favorites! We have the stitched models in the shop... so I've tucked them into our color copier, enlarged them, and given you a few more pics than the actual kits do. We're inserting them into all the kits we're selling... things like fringe detail, the insides of the needlecases... stuff that makes a picture worth a thousand pages of instructions!
I understand Peyote stitch, so I could follow the instructions. But if you are unfamiliar with it, you might want a friend close-by who knows Peyote.
