Need a Kit? Or a Magazine?





There are some fabulous kits (canvas, threads and stitch guide) available these days.  Remember the Floozies from Leigh Designs?  ThreadworX has done stitch guides that come with a thread pack for the first of the series and plans to stitch them all. Here's Alehouse Annie.  I want to go out partying with her!

Terry Dryden has many of her teaching kits for sale. I've seen Whirlygig in person and it is fabulous!  Please note that Terry adds new kits to this page periodically so bookmark it to revisit occasionally.

Stitchery Square has several Barbara Elmore kits for sale at 10 percent off.  I don't know if the prices on this page include the 10 percent or not.  You'll have to ask.

Jody Adams has quite a few copies of old Needlepoint Now magazines for sale at her Etsy store.  Most are $7 each (plus shipping and NYS tax if you live there), which is more than they usually go for on eBay but you may want an issue you haven't been able to find there.

  1. Hi Jane. Your Marlon Brandon square is wonderful. Looking forward to the Nordic Snowman Stocking. In Amy's Attic, there is a Barbara Elmore Canvas, Stitch Guide & China pieces listed over 45% off. It's a great piece & savings, too. P.S. I am all caught up on the current Doctor Who. Thanks!

  2. Oooo! Thanks for the tip, Robin. Here's the link to Amy's Attic and the bargains there for anyone who needs a County Hutch from Barbara E.

  3. I stayed away as long as I could once reading your post title on my blog this morning. So my answer to your question is: Yes, I'm sure I do. No, er Yes. No, not right now. Well it won't hurt to look. And you make it so darned convenient. Enabler.

  4. Sorry. I have to keep my Master Enabler status somehow, though.

  5. Sorry, Madonna. Some of these are really calling my name, too.

  6. By the way, Robin, you have sharp eyes to have noticed the teaser header about the Nordic snowman stocking! I went ahead and posted a photo this morning.

  7. Jane,
    Do you know where I can get the Leigh Design's Guadalajara canvases? Since you are the master enabler, I thought you might know. I have no LNS that carries canvas.

  8. Beth, since you have to do mail order, talk to Ruth Schmuff at Bedecked and Beadazzled. She will be getting the canvases in stock (the big ones, at least, but I don't know about the small coaster sizes) because she's doing a class with Brenda Hart on them.

    You may be able to sign up for the class long distance, in fact. Ruth does allow this for some of her classes. You can reach her through the shop (see link above).

    You can also order via Rebecca's although she may have to get these from Leigh.

    It's getting hard to tell who actually has something in stock and who has photos of things they can order when it comes to online shops. If a shop owner reads this and has some of the Guadalajara designs now, maybe they'll let us know.

  9. I am looking for a copy of the instructions/kit for Jody Adams Christmas House. Anyone have an idea where i could get them?

  10. I saw this on eBay about two months ago. As far as I know, that's your best shot although you should ask the folks who sell stash to keep an eye out for you. Here's one example--http://stitchingdestashing.blogspot.com/

    I believe that Jody Adams has retired from teaching, so asking her to sell a leftover copy is probably not possible. You could also ask on the ANG email list if any of her students has this languishing in their stash.
