Mary Tussey has posted photographs of four of her Stetson hat canvases on Facebook. These are exclusive to Nashville Needlework.

If you are a fan of Threedles' designs, you'll be happy to hear Treenway Silks has kitted up the Westminster Abbey colors for "Cathedrals" with silk threads and ribbons kits.

Ridgewood is offering the Kate Dickerson miniature butterfly tote as an exclusive through the shop. Details here.  Click on the ad for a larger view.

Hingham Square Needlepoint has exclusive American flag canvas and matching coasters with ocean themes.

Annie Lane Designs is now selling "private edition" (probably limited edition?) canvases through their Etsy store (second link below).

Laura Perin just announced a new design called "Seaside Blues."  It's a sort of quilt pattern in lovely cool summery poolside colors.

Vicky DeAngelis shows off new (and old) items from Market.  If you are taken by the Penny Macleod portrait, check out The Collection's website (second link below) which has quite a few of her distinctive women.

Absolutely Needlepoint has posted a new limited edition ornament that celebrates the Cincinnati pig on a carousel in a just opened park.

Moore Than Needlepoint has announced their 2015 limited edition Christmas ornament by Jean Wallen.  There is a photo on Facebook.  Contact the shop to order.

Just in time for the 4th of July, Kate Dickerson/KSH Needlepoint Collections has a new 4th of July Star.  It comes with its own sparkly stick for finishing, too.

Adornment Needlepoint has a new Wake Forest stand up - The Demon Deacon.

Rogue Needlepoint has announced a new line of larger canvases that are the trademark sayings of our favorite tv personalities.  All are on zigzag backgrounds apparently.

Terry Dryden has announced that the new "Secret Garden" kits (intended as quick and fun projects to try out new stitches and threads) are now available.  There is information about them here and a link to the Secret Garden page on her website.

Laura Megroz of CBK has a new black lab stocking that's a charmer.

What's the Point? Needlepoint has three new rainbow love canvases exclusive to the shop from their in-house designer.  Use the side arrows to see them all.

Ridgewood has received new canvases they ordered at the Columbus show.  The designers are uncredited but these are mostly new to me designs, so enjoy.

Tango and Chocolate has two photos of new colorful lamp work bead scissors fobs posted on Facebook.  Use the right side arrow to see the closeup.

Down Sunshine Lane has added a lot of new magnets to their online store.  I think the sock monkeys will be particularly popular but there is something for every taste.  I like the colorful sand dollar and the crab, Little Red Riding Hood, and the castle plus the Fairest of Them All mirror.  The hand drawn wooden needle minders from Michelle Palmer are lovely, by the way.

Color Complements is starting to dye a new thread--a very narrow flat ribbon.  It's actually a tubular chainette of rayon viscose about the width of  Neon Rays but it is smaller than Flair and can't have another thread snaked through the middle.  I don't know about beads, though....

Ridgewood has received a new shipment of needle magnets.   The enameled little Christmas elf and the patriotic star are new to me.

Knotted Needle posted photos on Facebook of the six Patti Mann "Super Heros" canvases.  There are five single heroes and one larger canvas with all of them.

Baseball fans, Absolutely Needlepoint has limited edition baseball canvases available.  Photos are on Facebook.

Vicky DeAngelis noticed the heat so the new photos of canvases from Market she took are all of snowmen from Labors of Love, Machelle Somerville, Pepperberry and The Collection.  Stay cool!

Raymond Crawford Designs has posted more photos of Raymond's new Route 66 series on Facebook. Featured are Los Angeles, Flagstaff, Gallup, Amarillo, Oklahoma City, St. Louis and Chicago.

CBK Needlepoint has set up a new Facebook page.  Here's the link.  If you are a fan of their work (and who isn't!) you should Like the page to help you keep up with their latest.

Laura Wheeler Designs has a new series--the Mushroom Maidens!  Let me quote her from Facebook--"Meet Margo Mushroom with the feathers in her cap, Myrtle Mushroom and her butterfly bonnet, Millie Mushroom the bird lover, and Madge Mushroom with her Carmen Miranda fruit hat; they would love to come live in your garden. These designs are 8" x 10", hand-painted on 13 mesh canvas."  I see lots of fun mushroom garden hats in our future...

Needle Deeva has a new design called "Corporate Cats in the Rat Race. " Hilarious!

Patty Paints has a new style of ikat pattern frame that comes in various colors. Red and white is planned and apparently she will do other colors upon request.

Needlework Retailer shows off the red version of the Threedles Christmas 2015 ornament.  This design doesn't appear to be on the Threedles website yet.

Devon Nicholson Design has a new series--chimps!  There is a chimpanzee for each month of the year, each decked out with something no monkey should be without--particularly fireworks!  LOL

Joan Eidman of Fiori shows off her St. Nicholas ornament from her "Victoriana" series and promises to design more for the set.  Fiori is represented by Dream House Ventures which has updated their website with her new Angel series, the rest of the Victoriana series and more (second link below).

BB Designs also posted a great owls piece on Facebook.

BB Designs has a wonderful new butterflies and butterfly bush pattern posted on Facebook.

Moore Than Needlepoint in Pinehurst, NC has announced a new needlework line called "Carolina Inspirations" designed by Jean Wallen. The first piece is a Bargello pattern inspired by the pottery of Anne Crabbe.  Carolina Inspirations will feature products by Carolina artisans and stitchers.  Keep an eye on their Facebook page for more pieces as they only have a minimal website.

Adornment Needlepoint has announced a new piece in their series of Winston-Salem, NC themed ornaments.  This one is the Moravian Church, designed exclusively for the shop by Squiggee.

Maggie has updated her website with the new designs.  I think you'll particularly like the geometrics from GeeWorks. I also like the "Happy Trails" seahorse from Susan Reis on page two.

Accoutrement Designs has new magnets--an olive and a buckeye!  There is an Ohio magnet, too, and new scissors fobs based on fancy alcoholic beverages.

Vicky DeAngelis shows off two new summery designs by Raymond Crawford and Pepperberry.

Looks like Elizabeth Bradley Design now offers little needle minder magnets based on their floral needlepoint designs. They are called "Mini Blooms" and there are four designs made for EB by Accoutrement Designs.

Ridgewood Needlepoint has posted photographs of new items they ordered at the Columbus show that have just arrived.  The designers aren't credited but I think at least some of these are from Colors of Praise.  It's a fun browse, regardless.

Accoutrement is now making magnets for CBK reproducing some of their fun Scott Church designs.

Louise's Needlework added six photos of a new Charley Harper and JP Needlepoint canvases to their Facebook page.

Carolyn Hedge Baird has announced a new book on Facebook. It should be available in 4-6 weeks from your local shop.  The title is "Teeny Tiny Needlepoint Stitcher" so I suppose it is smaller scale stitches.

Victori-Anne just posted photos of a lot of the new Accoutrement Designs needle minders released this summer on Facebook.

Ruth Schmuff reveals her plan for a new thread line--overdyed floche!

Mary Tussey also posted a photo on Facebook of her brand new "Parade of Boats" belt canvas.

BeStitched posted a photo of the "Whimsy Stork" piece from Colors of Praise on Facebook. I think this is pretty new.

Starke Art Designs just posted new things to the CBK website (CBK is her distributor). Love the "You Just Mermaid My Day" canvas!

Just Nan is a cross stitch and counted thread design that also has some darling accessories, like these needle sliders.  I think they all come with a magnet inside to help corral those errant needles, but for sure they are quite pretty.

Needle Artworks just announced that both Genny Morrow Designs and Ann Strite-Kurz have new websites under construction.  If you are a counted canvaswork fan, this is a Big Deal.  Genny's daughter is doing her website to release her mother's designs.  It's not quite ready yet but you should bookmark this.

Ann Strite-Kurz's website is here and it has lots of new goodies shows.

What's the Point? Needlepoint is having a Brenda Stofft trunk show so they posted photographs on their Facebook page, including what I think are new double-sided animal ornaments.  Brenda doesn't update her website often so if you are a fan of her work, browse this to see if you find anything new and Must Have.

Vicky DeAngelis is back from Market with a new chatelaine and a new favorite canvas from The Collection.

Melissa Shirley posted a photo of her huge booth on Facebook.  That's a lot of canvases!

Blue Dogwood Designs has collaborated with River Silks to create six "Kits to Go" to allow folks to create little self-finishing lavender sachets with stitched inserts.  You can see the colors and flower designs available on their Facebook page.  It's a very fun way to experiment with silk ribbons.  You can see more sachets and other new designs on the Blue Dogwood website (second link below).

Zecca's updated their website.  I particularly like "Elephant Ride."  I think we all might be in trouble....

Theresa of Homestead Needle Arts reports in on the new designs she got for the shop.  I think many of these are from Patti Mann, but I am not sure.

Geri of Pippin Studio has posted five photographs of the new small angel, snowman and Santa canvases from Pippin on Facebook.  She says there are a dozen of them, but I'm unclear if there are twelve total or twelve Santas, twelve angels, etc.  There are four wonderful small beach critter pieces, too.  They are called Chomp (for the shark), Peek (for the seal), Snap (the crab) and Squawk (the seagull).

Leigh Designs has a new Ashland Sky bag style -- the "Stick Sack."  It's a good place to put those stretcher bars, large scissors and other big items you want to carry without damage.  They come in nine colors (second link below) and are 14.5 inches long by 6 inches wide.  Plenty of room for your stretcher bar collection, or even your knitting needles.

Rachel's Needlepoint has posted photographs of new purses from Sophia on Facebook.  These are self-finishing and lovely.

Pocket Full of Stitches has posted a whole slew of photos of new things from Market from Alice Peterson, Associated Talents, BB Needlepoint, CBK (I think Scott Church pieces have SC in their official number), CanvasWorks, Elizabeth Turner,  JP Needlepoint, Melissa Shirley, Rebecca Wood and The Collection.

I think CBK has updated their New section on their website.

The Nimble Needle in Atlanta has updated their Facebook page with a lot of photographs.  There's nothing we haven't seen before except more Maggie/Ewe and Eye framed pieces, but if you want nice photos of Vicki Sawyer's animals, Melissa Shirley's Witches on Parade, Mary Lake-Thompson's Bow Wow Christmas dog ornaments, Elizabeth Turner's wood violet and new colors from Rainbow Gallery for various thread lines, this is the place.

Janet Perry summarizes the new items from TNNA Market.

What's the Point? Needlepoint has posted a lot of photographs on their Facebook page.  I see Leigh Designs, Melissa Shirley, Maggie, Princess and Me and much more.  Nothing is credited so there are things I can't identify but if you want to see Leigh's Gold Diggers, this is the place to glimpse half of them.

You can also see three of Leigh's new Gold Diggers in the background of the photo Cynthia Thomas took of Leigh's Jungle Heat:  Sultry Outback pillow.

Needlepoint Studio of Sarasota has posted a dozen photos on their FB page.  Nothing is credited so I can only guess at who is represented. has set up a special page on their website for ordering things they are getting at Market.  The page will vanish 6/2/15 but until then these items are fifteen percent off.  Remember, these are pre-orders. You'll have to wait until the shop orders are filled to get these.

Rachel's Needlepoint posted three photographs on FB of Sudberry's new boxes and rocker.

MM Designs has a very nice snow globe.  Moore Than Needlepoint posted a photo on their FB page.

Pepperberry Designs has updated their website.  I like the Crow Banner but the Cool Reindeer is hilarious!  She also has dog ornaments like Melissa Shirley does.  Do we have a theme developing?

JP Needlepoint has updated their website, too.  There are a whole series of Aesop's Fables nursery rhyme pieces ("A Liar Will Not Be Believed Even If He Speaks the Truth" features a shepherd and sheep for the boy who cried wolf.), little owl rounds that are very cute and quick to stitch, plus two Halloween banners of skeletons, one an orange pumpkin skeleton and one the traditional white human skeleton.

Nope, Vicki DeAngelis says this was taught by Deborah Mitek.  Vicki didn't say whether this was a Libby Sturdy piece, though. Vicki updated me with the information that this is a little design created by the Painters Threads folks to showcase their thread line.  Thanks, Vicki!

Robin King just posted this on Facebook--"New upcoming color names (and their threads) to debut at this weekend's TNNA (Needlepoint Market) in Columbus, OH from Rainbow Gallery.
