TNNA Indianapolis May 2014

Note that all the links must be copy/pasted in this article because I cannot turn a tab into an article.  I had to copy them all from the tab before I renamed it to reuse it in May 2015.

TNNA's Summer Trade show was in Indianapolis in May 2014 instead of Columbus in June. This section of Blog shows off the newest things introduced there as well as new things that have premiered since the trade show. Please note that new stitch guide information is listed at the CH Stitch Guides blog at this link--


Amy Bunger is posting hints about her next home study piece on Facebook. No, I don't know who it is, either.
HOME STUDY HINT #1 -- The southern artist designing the next home study lives surrounded by still life in miniature.
STUDY HINT #2 -- The next Home Study Project is dedicated to a fictional, full-spectrum storyteller.
HOME STUDY HINT #3 -- I must be stuck on initials for Home Study Artists...MS,KCN, JP AND ??? (these initials can also stand for a guffaw)
HOME STUDY HINT #4 -- Some of the patterns are small (6" x 6"). All are rainbow-hued. The designs original from a time and place where this storyteller would have lived. "Her" fantasies weave through her own story molded by betrayal, murder, power, riches and (of course) love.
Home Study Hint #5 -- Still haven't taken the first stitch, but that doesn't mean that I haven't started. My notebook and thread bag area filling up with goodies to try on first canvas of ......... series. I will try to add a Hint #6 on AGS Facebook tomorrow or Monday. Looks like most of you have guessed the designer and "theme" so soon I need to start showing canvases and ideas.
Home Study Hint #6 -- This paisley is not quite finished but coming along. Did you know that in the 1920s and 1930s American quilters referred to the paisley design shape as "Persian Pickle?"

Amy's latest tidbits-
A. "Nights with Sheherazade" Part One & Part Two
B. Will offer an October Start date
C. Part One is three smaller canvases approximately 6" x 6" spread out in three different shipments
D. Part Two is a single larger canvas 16" x 10" spread out in three different lessons.
E. You can sign up for both parts or just one.

A glimpse of one of the canvases--

Another of the small ones--

This must be the large one--

Vicky DeAngelis posts some wintery Melissa Shirley/Debbie Mumm canvases new at the May market. Vicky has also posted lots of photos of the newest threads from Access Commodities and Planet Earth.

Enriched Stitch has posted photos from the JJ Graphic Designs line, a new designer from Wellesley Needlepoint, on their blog since they are having a trunk show of their work. Everything is based on Boston and Cape themes, so if you love Massachusetts and the ocean, you'll love these.

Vicky DeAngelis shows off new Ewe and Eye canvases, a game board collaboration from Maggie and Lisa Krause, new sequins and beads from The Collection, and the new bullion needles from Colonial.

Pocket Full of Stitches has posted photographs of the new Raymond Crawford "cookie" ornaments. Delicious!

Pocket Full of Stitches has posted new Elizabeth Turner Collection magnets. There is a cute castle, lovely cross and a retro owl, spiders in their webs and a nice selection of peacocks, hummingbirds and turtles.

Rug and counted canvaswork fans will be thrilled to hear that Thread Medley is starting a new rug. The Peru Rug is based on a modern rug and is graced with bright, happy colors. I can't wait to see what Jan does with this one!

A new Ashley Dillon Halloween teddy bear, distributed by Susan Roberts.

A glimpse of one of the canvases--

Alice Peterson has a new faux leather tote bag with a place for a canvas. According to The Needlepointer the tote has a zip and inside pockets and is a light weight with top stitching.

Designer's Desk has a new exclusive Mag Friend magnet of the Chicago bean sculpture. There are two photos so use the side arrow to see both.

Two new Easter Egg canvases from Labors of Love! There are three models (yes, I can count) but only two of the designs are brand new.

The Wellesley Needlepoint Collection has a new sports fan "Boston Strong" exclusive from their shop. (Sorry, don't know the designer's name.) It shows little boys in various team uniforms sitting together looking at the Boston skyline.

Lots of new things have been posted on Facebook today. First, Patt has stitched a new cat from her Patt and Lee line (this is also available from Pajamas and Chocolate, the hand painted line she produces).

Also on Facebook is the newest "Hysterical Historical Hooter," from JP Needlepoint. He's a pirate owl with his parrot and looks like he might be named Blackbeak. LOL

Finally, A. Bradley Needle Arts has posted six new mitten canvases, straight from Africa!

Randi at the World in Stitches has been seduced by the beautiful colors of overdyed 3.5mm silk ribbons from Treenway Silks. These aren't exactly new but I haven't ever seen photos before so I thought you'd like to have them mentioned here. Most silk ribbons are 4mm wide so these are a little narrower than usual, which you might find useful.

ANG is partnering with Accoutrement Designs to offer an exclusive STITCH magnet. You can see the magnet here and order one from ANG at the second link below.

Ruth Schmuff is busy adding canvases from the designers she distributes. New Kimberly painted canvases here-

...and there are new Hal Mayforth canvases here.

Vicky DeAnglis lists the new thread colors coming out in many different lines.

And Vicky talks about Silken Straw and more.

Needlework Retailer News has posted a photo of one of two new Anne Cram Design canvases showing Thatcher Island. Don't miss the sad story behind this small piece of land off Cape Anne.

Laura Perin has a new Bargello design, based on carnations. You can see "Bargello and Carnations" here but follow the link to Laura's website to buy.

LizArt has added five new charts to her website! They are all Bargello counted canvaswork except for Leaping Stag and are all lovely! The first link shows them all off and the second is Liz Morrow's website. The new patterns are all on the "Bargello 2 Needlepoint" page.

Michele Ink Designs has new needle minders. Building on the silver in their precious clay needle minders, the company has figured out how to add color in the form of fused glass. These lovelies will hold your needles secure in style.

Nutcracker fans will be thrilled to hear dede Odgen has redone her nutcrackers pillow and stocking design to make individual ornaments, each featuring a single personable nutcracker. And --drumroll please--each ornament comes with a Robin King guide for it. Not only did dede rework her original design but Robin took the class guide she wrote for 3 Kittens and turned it into eight separate guides, one for each new ornament. Much happiness is in Needlepoint Land today!

Erhman has released their 2014 catalogue, and it is full of new designs and a few rereleased old favorites. These English otis are on 10-12 count and come with wool to stitch the printed pattern. The designs are from the best British artists. These traditional pieces are timeless and easy on the eyes to boot! Don't miss the Kaffe Fassett peacock! There are some astounding florals and animal/insect pieces as well as some very interesting cityscapes.

Laura Perin reminds us of her floral Hardanger samplers. These are very feminine and an easy introduction to Hardanger to boot.

Mag Friends has two new magnets, one a remembrance for D-Day.

Jan of Thread Medley has finished the needlepoint version of her "Nain Diamonds." This is based on a rug pattern from the Nain region of Iran. This will be available as a chart once Jan has time to work it up into diagrams.

Ruth Schmuff agrees with me that foxes are the new owls. She introduces a new Ewe and Eye fox canvas and four brand new seasonal foxes from Eye Candy here. The second link has even better photos of the fabulous new Eye Candy pieces.

There's a new online shop--The Comfy Cottage. It offers needlepoint canvases and needle felting kits. To keep an eye on them as they grow, sign up for their shop newsletter.

Pocket Full of Stitches has posted photographs of new Access Commodities threads (leather cord and Russia Braid) on their blog. There is also a photo of two new Melissa Shirley cabins in the snow and Needle Delights' new chart for "Colorwaves."

Bristly Thistle has posted photographs of their orders from the May trade show on their website. Not everything is new but most is and almost everything is beachy given the shop's location in Florida, so I thought everyone dreaming of vacation would like to see their newest.

Liz Morrow of LizArt is making progress on her newest design, Octagon in a Square. It's one of her Mad Miter Bargello pieces, and complex as all get out! Beautiful as well.

Amy Bunger shows off her new Elizabeth Turner Collection magnet (a peacock feather) on her Amy's Golden Strand Facebook page.

The peacock feather magnet is a Big Buddies, if you shop is going to order from Elizabeth Turner for you.

Kate Dickerson Needlepoint is updating some of her designs. You can see the before and after here.

One Off Needlework has a new obsession with daisies.

Rogue Needlepoint has announced a new group of Superhero canvases, sure to please the comic book admirer in your midst. Looks like these will be available in long stripes for belts, purse straps or pet collars.

Vicky DeAngelis continues publishing photos she took at the Indianapolis Market. This time she shows off Sundance's little guitar playing witch, the stack of pumpkins from JP Needlepoint, The Collection's very beautiful little round Christmas ornaments, new 3-D stuffed animals from Sew Much Fun, and new colors of "crocodile" embossed bags from Lee/Colonial Needle.

Orna Willis has posted her :Window in the Old City" chart in PDF form on her Etsy site. If you love drama, this piece (on black canvas) is for you.

Vicky DeAnglis has posted more new things from Market. I particularly like the Associated Talents orchids (I'm a sucker for orchid canvases), but the beer label piece from Point of It All will be a wonderful gift for the right person, and of course the Laurel Birch fish or birds lady will be big hits for Danji.

Ruth Schmuff has announced the newest Sandra Vargas canvas, the cutest chipmunk EVER. Ruth is going to have this her summer Mystery Class. Details here.

3 Kittens posted photos of items they ordered at Market on their website. The NP things are at the bottom of the page.

SharonG has updated Facebook with two photos of new canvases--a tuxedo cat named Catrina and a beautiful new arched door in her door series. SharonG plans to stitch the door herself so there will certainly be a guide for it in about two months since she has to wait a month for the canvas to be painted for her. Catrina is 8 x 18 on 18 count while the door is 8 x 10 on 18 count.

Annie Lane has three styles of magnets using her designs, all available from her Etsy store.

She also has a few other kits for a variety of projects ready to ship. Terry uses English silks in gorgeous colors that most shops don't carry in the United States, so this is a good opportunity to pick up a delightful counted canvaswork project that is a good travel size in unusual threads for your stitching pleasure.

Ridgewood has some of the new "Snow Globes" collection by Kirk and Bradley.

The "Suduku Delight" class is officially announced by Needle Delights.

Fleur de Paris has posted a new dede Odgen koi pond photo on their Facebook page. (They distribute dede canvases.) This one will be out in May.
