The TNNA Show Offerings Start to Leak Out UPDATED

The new designs and products that will be released during TNNA's Winter trade show in California are starting to appear online.  I think this year instead of trying to post multiple listings of the new things I'll do one summary article to make it easier to find things later.  I will put the latest items on top of the list.  To find this article again, type "TNNA Winter 2013" in the search box at the top of the page on the left.  It should come right up.


Pajamas and Chocolate has updated their website with new hand painted designs, full of color and pattern.  There are photos of their wooden Shaker box and coaster sets, too.

Needle Works has photos of new patterns in the popular Snap Trays.

Needle Delights gives us a glimpse of the newest chart called Winter Logs.  I love the colors and patterns!

Here is Autumn Logs, also underway from Needle Delights.

Barbara Bergsten has posted photos of her new pink elephant Christmas ornament and more from her shift dress series.

Pocket Full of Stitches has posted photos of new items from The Princess and Me.  Don't miss the Christmas diver swimming among giant candy cane seaweed!

Needle Deeva's website is updated.  A preview is here.

Vicky shows off the Needle Deeva Thanksgiving set and gives thanks to the magic of Barbara's Needlepoint and their finishing.

Janet Perry describes new products.


Leigh Designs posted one canvas from the eight new Femme Fatales that your shop will see at market in their January newsletter.  All have the same marquee lights border.  If you subscribe to Needlepoint Now and have your January 2013 issue, you can see three Femmes in the Leigh Designs ad.

Cooper Oaks is asking Susan Wallace Barnes to do a series of seasonal doors.  Here is Blue Door which combines winter and Christmas.

Pocket Full of Stitches has photos of other new Cooper Oaks treats.

Plus they have some new Zecca pieces, all a Tree of Life design.

We've already seen Melissa Shirley's new Valentine canvases for 2013.

Ewe and Eye has new items up on their website.

Here are four little Needle Deeva hearts that will be featured at the Sample It! night before the TNNA show officially opens.  Showmen in top hats and beaded candy, what could be finer?

Patti Mann is re-releasing the Russian Nesting Doll Nativity set.  This is a Darcy Predmore design that Patti Mann distributes.   It's a wonderful series of nine canvases:  Mary, Joseph, Baby Jesus, the three Wise Men, the shepherd, a camel and an angel.  The pieces are all roughly  7 1/2 by 4 1/2 inches except for Baby Jesus which is only 3 1/2 by 5 inches.  Each piece is roughly $80.  If you are curious, these and other new pieces should be up on Patti Mann's website by early February.

If you have a Facebook account, keep your eyes open.  Shops and designers will start posting images soon.  Lani Burston Silver (Lani's Needlepoint) is already posting to the Needlepoint Nation group about her new shoe series and SJ Designs is showing off charted Berlin Woolwork pages from her new publication.

Thank you, Carol

Thanks to Carol of Carol's Counted Canvaswork I have discovered a new teacher and designer of counted pieces--Christine Bishop. That birdcage work box is to die for!

Ok, EGA chapters, start saving up to bring Christine to the U.S. to teach.
