A Bit About Premax Scissors

Kreinik's latest blog posting talks about three styles of Premax scissors from Italy that they distribute.  I've been seeing photos of these online and am glad to learn more about them.  After all, Christmas is coming and I've been very good this year, Santa….

Needlepoint in the News!

Needlepoint is in the news a lot these days.   Don Lynch of Associated Talents was flipping through a magazine at the beach and found a Melissa Shirley design on a couch pillow in one of those swanky apartment profiles in the September 2017 edition of "Traditional Home."

The Smart Cookie Award for September goes to Leigh HW

Leigh HW found an older dresser to hold her stitching supplies. She stripped and refinished it, then added casters on the bottom to make it easy to move.  The finishing is lovely and she's even figured out a way to make the knobs needlepointed!  To see all five photographs, use the right side arrows to browse.

Congratulations, Leigh—this is fabulous!
