Introducing Amber Yan

The Needlepointer is having a trunk show for a designer I'd never heard of--Amber Yan.  She's hard to categorize.  Some of her work (like that champagne bottle or Christmas stocking) is detailed and realistic.  Some is very graphic in nature like her jigsaw inspired large pieces.  Some pieces are just plain fun, like the Halloween drinks series or the space-themed small designs.

If you are looking for something different or need a good stash buster, you should explore her work.

New Needlepoint Store in Charleston, SC

If you are traveling this summer and going to be in Charleston, South Carolina, check out the brand new shop--Lowcountry Needlepoint.

Here is the shop website with contact information.  They are brand new so when I wrote this, the website didn't have much on it yet but give Leigh time.  And say hi for me when you visit!  We all need "local thread therapy," right?

A Replacement for Dovo Scissors?

If you are a fan of Dovo scissors and mourned the company's closing, Mary Corbet may have found a replacement.

Golden Forge scissors are imported from Switzerland by Access Commodities, which always brings us the best stuff.
