Mill Hill Designer's Showcase
|Welcome to Our Designer's Showcase of Bead Kits for Mill Hill! |
Mill Hill has commissioned several artists to present their artwork in Bead Kit format!
Enjoy the artwork of Quilt Artist Jim Shore, Folk Art Artist Debbie Mumm and Sarah Grant (STICKS) -- Old World Santas, Snowmen, Playing Cards, Reindeer, and charming bites from life -- these artists bring delightful designs to this stitching venue.
Each of Mill Hill's kits contain the chart, 14ct perforated paper, various counts of Aida cloth or 28ct linen for your Cross Stitching. Mill Hill beads garnish everything, so along with each artists color-schemes and personality... each finished design will glisten with Mill Hill glass beads! Here we go!
Polar Opposites by Debbie Mumm
Mill Hill has a fun new series of 6 -- 16ct Aida designs garnished with Mill Hill beads. Designed by Debbie Mumm, this is a collection of darling penguins and polar beads playing around. One has the penguin sliding off the bear's back... someone is innertubing, someone else is skating... and two are hiding in packages!
At first we thought these were Christmas... but they really aren't... just all a cute Winter-y theme, we like the fresh blues, reds and greens in them. Presented as complete kit, you get the chart, fabric, flosses and glisteny Mill Hill glass beads. Finishing approx 5 x 5 each VERY cute, crisp, fresh winter-y designs!!!
Kitty Doodles by Amy Lee Weeks for Mill Hill
What a delightful collection of simple black-line doodles from Amy Lee Weeks! The people at Mill Hill have converted them to Cross Stitch on 18ct white Aida, and embellished with a few glass beads here and there. Design sizes finishing approx 5 x 7, each is stitched with 99% DMC black floss and accented with simple striking colors in the design borders.
SO DARN CUTE... they are presented as complete kits of the chart, fabric, beads and flosses. Frames are offered separately. These ARE done on aida -- don't get hung up on that -- if you have a swatch of something else white in your stash, use it. The designs are darling, and will WAY overshadow the fabric you stitch them on! I LOVE the one that says *Don't stress me out!*
New Curly Girl Kits
Everybody loves Curly Girl's whimsical artwork and her *wisdoms of life* advice! Mill Hill has a license to produce her designs in Cross Stitch, so six new designs have come our way. Presented in kits of 28ct linen, Mill Hill glass beads (not tons, just enough for a little glitz) and DMC flosses, these are over-the-top cute! Each finishes approx 7 x 7.
Announcing Laurel Burch DOGS!
Mill Hill presents the ever-charming and famous artwork of Laurel Burch's dogs in Cross Stitch! Joining their collection of CAT kits, we now have 6 new dogs to stitch as well! The colors in all of these are rich -- everything is accented with either gold metallic thread, or gold glass beads.
Offered in complete kit format, Mill Hill has made them with Aida or Linen as the base fabric -- you decide -- and added all the necessary DMC flosses and metallics as well as a smattering of seed beads to make them glisten. Two are stitched on a Tropical Turquoise, two are on a charcoal gray, and two are on a rich purple background. So darn cute and colorful... I don't know how you can choose a favorite!

Good Coffee and Friends from Debbie Mumm
Mill Hill has commissioned Debbie Mumm and her cheerful artwork to present this fun collection of bead kits! Good Coffee and Friends... what could be better??? Presented in complete kit format, each design is stitched on coffee-brown 16ct Aida --- which is surprisingly easy to see.
Browns, yellows, teals and greens are the predominate colors in all of them. Can you see the tone-on-tone coffee plants stitched into the backgrounds? Each design finishes approx 5 x 5, and fits into one of Mill Hill's 6-inch wooden frames -- this time, either mossy green or terra cotta. Very cute!
Amy Lee Weeks Florals

So simple, yet so full of bold color and quiet advice, each is stitched on 14ct Aida with DMC and almost NO beads!!!!! Framed in black 8 x 8's, these are so clean, fresh, young and new... stitch them for someone young-at-heart in your life!
New Jim Shore Santas and Snowmen
Getting ready for Christmas -- Mill Hill has released a set of 6 paper ornaments to dress your tree. Artwork by Jim Shore, we already have six Santas -- now here are three more for that set. The snowmen are completely new.
Offered as perforated paper kits, each is full of flosses, some glisteny glass beads for a bit of jazz, and lots of quilted charm. They all finish approx 3 x 5, and because they are lightweight, they display beautifully on any Christmas tree!
New From STICKS -- Summer and Christmas!
Four colorful and bold designs worked on 16ct Aida with a ton of DMC floss and a smattering of Mill Hill Beads, these bring our STICKS collection of designs to 20. I just love them and can let the designs themselves enchant you -- without any of my descriptions!
Each finishes approx 7 x 7, and since these are on fabric instead of paper, you can make funky, wild pillows out of them. I know you can't tell from the pics, but the sun rays in both Relax and Play golf are studded with miniature glass seed beads. Presented as complete kits of the chart, fabric, flosses and beads, the frames are offered separately.
New From Curly Girl and Mill Hill
Here is the next set of 4 designs by Curly Girl -- these four bring our collection to 20! Presented in full kit format, you get the chart, linen, flosses and beads to finish these 7-1/2 x 7-1/2 inch designs.
I think my favorite this time is the Old Friends one... Old Friends cannot be made... they must be grown! Cute, colorful and whimsical, make sure you see the rest of Leigh's collection!

Jim Shore Flourishes Perforated Paper
A lovely collection of 6 new pastel colors of 14ct perforated paper has arrived! Very soft colors, each has the faintest swirly/floral designs printed all over them... in an ever-so-slightly darker shade. I don't think our pics can show the pretty detail very well... one can only hope! Offered in 9 x 12 sheets -- two to a package.
ROYALTY in Cross Stitch!
Mill Hill and Jim Shore have brought us a really cool set of 4 playing cards -- stitched on 16ct Aida, and garnished with glass beads! Offered as complete kits, each card finishes approx 5 x 7 and is FULL of clear, bright playing card color.
Stitch the King of Diamonds for (Dad?), the poker player of the house, the Queen of Hearts for (Mom?), the bridge player... the Jack of Clubs for (the card shark away at college?) and the Ace of Spades for (Grandma who still plays cards three times a week!!!) You can probably switch out the face cards and suits... if you want a Queen of Spades, for instance... you'll just have to get handy with a piece of graph paper. Very well done, and quite unique!!! Black Frames available by special order.
Olde Worlde Santas by Jim Shore
Mill Hill has released a set of 4 Olde Worlde Santas designed by artist Jim Shore. All have a 'quilt flavor' to them, all share a matching background, color scheme, and general shape, but each features a different Santa. Crisp bright reds and yellows, all are worked on an icy blue colored 14ct perforated paper in DMC flosses and glistening glass beads.
Of course, you can always stitch them on linen instead... either way, they finish a generous 5 x 5. Very vibrant, each is offered as the complete kit of chart, paper, flosses, beads, needle and button embellishment. We have a set of coordinating snowmen, too!
Geographic Snowmen by Jim Shore
Ok... these are here... but the set of 4 of them has NO NAME!! They are a set of 4 cross-stitch and beaded snowmen -- on 14ct perforated paper -- the one at the top left is Northern, next is Southern, next are are Eastern and Western! (And I don't 'get it!'... they're all frozen... and I can't tell WHAT area of the country ANY of them come from!!!) They ARE darling... I love the circular borders... and the colors are cheerful!
Offered as complete kits of the paper, flosses, beads and Jim Shore button... our shop models will be on linen... and we might even make up a set that finishes ROUND -- without the corner motifs! Cute snowmen... life seems so odd... my daffodils are blooming in my backyard, but the East Coast had that snowstorm the day we received our promo-sheets about these! In Australia it's 100 degrees... so I guess it just goes to show that you can get these *anytime of the year*... because eventually YOUR winter will come!!!!!
Debbie Mumm's Skating Reindeer
Mill Hill has a festive new set of 4 Dancing Reindeer designed Each little guy is swirling around the ice -- reminds me of The Olympics!
Offered as complete kits of chart, 18ct aida, DMC flosses and Mill Hill beads, all four of these are crisp, fresh, bright in color, and really fun! Finishing approx 6 x 6, they'd finish beautifully into cubed stand-ups, or framed on the wall. Very Festive!
