TNNA Winter 2015 Phoenix

Please note that the TNNA Needlepoint Group is posting new designs on their Facebook page from a variety of designers.  I recommend you keep your eye on this page if you have a Facebook account.

THIS PAGE IS CLOSED.  New Items are now being added to the upcoming Columbus trade show tab.


Pocket Full of Stitches has a lot of new Santas and other Christmas items from Alexa, not to mention new Associated Talents Christmas ornaments and some hilarious animal and sign pieces from Unique New Zealand.  Who knew D.I.E.T. stands for Did I Eat That?  LOL

Treenway Silks is collaborating with Judith Baker Montano to create silk ribbons and silk perles in color ways Judith has chosen.

Pocket Full of Stitches has listed more new canvases from Dream House Ventures and Melissa Prince.  There are lots of fun new things from both artists, including a great cuckoo clock and some great cowboy boots.

Ruth Schmuff has announced a new artist whose designs she is distributing on needlepoint canvas--MaryJane Mitchell.  One canvas has a guide already but you can see all the designs available at the second link below.

Natalie's Fine Needlework has a new miniature rug design ready and it's a real honey!  The design is called "Istanbul" and it comes in three versions that can be combined to create a wonderful Turkish oriental pattern.  Although designed for 40 count silk gauze, you can create a rug on any count fabric you design if you simply adjust for the right size of ground fabric.

Pocket Full of Stitches has new canvases in but the thing we haven't seen before are their Hug Me bags.  You can check out the inside pockets as well as see the various sizes and styles on their blog.

Randi at World in Stitches just posted a new Tapestry Tent canvas of a pair of cardinals sitting among poinsettias. It's gorgeous.  When Randi showed the photo on Facebook, folks said they thought it was the canvas Liz Dillion was painting right at the January TNNA show.  I'm not sure about that but I am certain this is lovely.  Speaking of Tapestry Tent, Susan Roberts (which owns Tapestry Tent) has updated their website (second link below).  There are seven pages of new designs to admire.

Peacock Alley has four new Peeps canvases coming in.  The cute little chicks come in yellow, pink, blue and green pastels.  I think they are a custom design available only in the shop.

Laura Wheeler Designs has new needlepoint signs for the addicted stitcher.

Lee's Needle Arts/Colonial Needle has a new series that salutes all five branches of the US military.  Let's hear it for our soldiers and sailors!

Kimberly is stitching on a brand new design and offered us a few tantalizing peeks.

The Collection has a new Boston sports-themed design showing kids wearing various team jerseys sitting together on the banks of the Charles River looking at the Boston skyline.  Christine's Osterville Needlepoint posted a photo of it on Facebook.

Needlepoint For Fun is featuring their self-finishing plaster frames this week.  These come as a kit with Pepperpot silk thread and are on sale.  Designer is unknown but since I've not seen these before, I thought I'd feature them as "new."

Pocket Full of Stitches has posted new designs from & More, Barbara Bergsten, Bees Knees, Mile High Princess, and Canvas Art By Barbi.  Most items are new to me, so enjoy!

Pepita announced their newest design, "Colorful Vases," on their blog.  It's mod and blocky and would be such fun to stitch with every variation of cashmere and mosaic stitches you can find!  By the way, if you visit the Pepita website, you'll see all their newest designs (second link below), including a more traditional pottery canvas.

Needlework Retailer points out that Hal and Jack (the two new large Halloween stand up figures from Labors of Love) come on both 13 and 18 count.  The 18 count piece is shorter than the 13 count so depending on the impact you want, your vision, and how much time you want to spend stitching these two, Labors of Love will accommodate you.

Pocket Full of Stitches has new canvases from Ashley Dillon/Susan Roberts, Annie Lane, Associated Talents, J. Child, Julie Mar, Maggie, and Purple Palm, many of which I've not seen before.  Who knew Sherlock Feathers was available as a canvas? LOL

Jody Designs has created a stand up version of her popular White Bunny design.  You can see the variety of options on Facebook.

Just in time for Easter, Laura Perin has a new design called Faberge Egg I.  It's gorgeous and I can see many happy counted canvaswork lovers wanting to stitch this beauty.

Karen Hennessey of Zecca has just finished stitching her five letter flags and posted photos on Facebook.  Any letter is available, she just had fun stitching her official name.

I've just seen photos on Facebook of the cutest Twelve Days of Christmas set from the Canadian designer Ewa Kurnicka!  There are a dozen in the set but only six are pictured online.  Sorry.  You can contact Ewa via her Facebook page.  Check out her photo albums to see the cute Santas ornaments as well as some florals.

Estella Saville Designs has a new floral.  Love the abstract corners!  It comes in 3 color ways.

DebBee's Designs has been busy designing charts and for classes.  Here's the latest.

Chandail has new owl scissors fobs in stock that are wonderful, particularly for the bird lover.  Each owl "lampwork" bead is unique so buy early if you see one you fall in love with.

BB Needlepoint has posted three new belt designs hot off the drawing board on Facebook this morning.  These are for the Columbus show in very late May.

Ann Wheat Pace designs are posted on Pocket Full of Stitches' blog this morning.  (The shop is having a trunk show of her work.)   Ann doesn't often update her website so don't miss a chance to see her latest work.

I'm particularly fond of Ann Wheat Pace's larger crosses.  You can even fill in the corners to make a package wrapped with ribbon if you don't want a religious symbol.

I also love Ann Wheat Pace's Silver Mercury Glass series.  These are stunning stitched.

Ridgewood just posted photos of some of Jean Smith's floral designs.  If you love flowers, you have to see these!  Jean is famous for her flower canvases and you will see why if you click here.

Sally Corey Designs has posted photos of her latest designs on her website's home page.  You can see finished models in the slide show as well.

Pocket Full of Stitches has photos of several new Rebecca Wood pieces.  We've seen the charming reindeer ornaments and the Texas decorated cake before but the seasonal squares with their lovely borders are new to me.

The Wellesley Needlepoint Collection (TWNC) just posted their newest Annie Lane design on Facebook.  It is called "Sheep Wine" and will be available in Spring 2015.

TWNC also has a new J and J Graphics piece called "Cottage by the Sea," featured on the Needlework Retailer.

Peacock Alley Needlepoint has set up a group on Facebook to show off their Machelle Somerville trunk show which is there until the end of March 2015.  There are a lot of canvases on display I've not seen before so if you are a fan of Machelle or just curious, visit here.  The group is Open so anyone can see the photos and descriptions.

School Needlepoint has added a new line of military designs to their canvases.  Pictured is the Marine Corps design.  And there's a ten percent discount for active military!

Needle Nicely has added new canvases to their stock.  There's a very cute Raymond Crawford "Christmas march" stocking top,  a roses doorstop from Danae Designs, a Susan Roberts floral and a lovely Alice Peterson shells designs.  All these are new to me, so they may be new to you, too.

Kelmscott has some lovely new needle minders.  The elephant and tulips are new in 2015, but do scroll down to see more of their stock in case you haven't noticed a Pere Noel or sheep at night or basket of pansies or teapot or red barn or something else that is just perfect for your needles.

Just Another Button Company has new wire needle threaders with button holders that are quite cute.  (I'm partial to the sheep myself but the toad on page three is pretty durn cute.)  Some designs also come in counting pins if you happen to use those.

Tapestry Fair has updated their website with the new 2015 items.  There is a wide range of styles, many of which we haven't seen before.

Pocket Full of Stitches has posted some cute new eggs from Hummingbird Designs, new things from J. Childs and a few new Kate Dickenson fishnet animals and a Christmas goose, plus Tapestry Fair and Pippin goodies.

Estella Saville Designs is releasing five new charts based on autumn leaves she collected in Turkey.  Check her Facebook page to purchase these beauties.

Kate Dickerson has starting painting her initial canvases ("Bright Disk Letter Patterns") in a five inch square size so they are a perfect fit for Sudberry's Betsy Box.

Ruth Schmuff has posted photos of new animal canvases from Eleanor Grosch.  Her style is a sort of updated Charley Harper.  I particularly like the fox and crow and the outside owl piece but there is plenty to love here.

Janet Granger has updated her website.  This link is to her blog instead of straight to the site in case you want to explore her personal dollhouse instead of looking at her miniature needlepoint kits.

Lani has updated her website with two pages of new designs from 2015.

What's the Point? has set up a Facebook photo album called March Canvases (New) to show off the new items in their shop.  There are some very cute new things from Pepperberry, Ewe and Eye, and Needle Deeva, and there is more!

Machelle Somerville has added new designs to her "New for 2015" Facebook photo album.  There's a pretty group of blue Lady Birds and a cheerful patterned yellow bunny.

Magnets by Attractions has added lots of new spring-themed magnets to their Facebook page.  There are flowers, bugs, chicks and more.

Laura Wheeler Designs has posted photos of her new Wish Bottle series on Facebook.  These can be ordered as one side, double sided, or with custom labels.  Contact Laura via her email or through her Facebook page.

Pocket Full of Stitches has photos of some new Winnetka Stitchery houses, birdhouses and mittens. We don't get to see much of Winnetka online because they don't have a website so please take an opportunity to see their fun small pieces while you can.

Janet Perry raves about the little needle felted magnets from Yoshimi.  Unfortunately most of them appear to be sold out.

Labors of Love has two new clip on birds--a loon and a mallard.

A Stitcher's Garden in Arkansas just posted two photos of a new fold-up lap desk they just ordered on their Facebook page.  I've never seen anything quite like it!  I imagine some folks will love this, depending on how they stitch.

We have a new counted canvaswork designer -- Estelle Saville Designs!  You can see Estelle's designs on her Facebook page.  Some of them are on larger count, which is nice for those of us with vision issues.  I particularly like her plant designs--that Flueggea anatolica leaf pattern is lovely!

Laura Perin has released a new pattern called Corsage, which was a cyberclass for her a year or so back. The chart is just now available to her fans who didn't take the class.  It's a geometric but with your choice of flower in the center.

DebBee's Designs is showing off their newest counted canvaswork geometric on Facebook.  This is "Kaleidoscope."

I've been browsing Traditional Stitches' website, looking at the new cross stitch and sampler designs just released for the Nashville trade show and found four new Accoutrement magnets--a peacock, a leopard print, a deer (available in two colors) and a pinecone.  Lovely!

Mani de Donna also has some pretty Art Nouveau scissors in four different finishes.

Pocket Full of Stitches has posted photos of the new Bohin enameled necklace thread cutters on their blog as well as a series of "Bejeweled Tree" Christmas trees from Libby Sturdy.  These are painted canvases of Christmas trees, each a little different. A group of them would make a great mantel display!

Needle Nicely has two new Maggie canvases I haven't seen before--a stunning monochromatic geometric that looks like Op Art and a hilarious moose attempting to decorate for Christmas.

Northern Expressions has two new counted designs available for the Nashville market. One is an alphabet sampler and the other is a one colored geometric.

Pocket Full of Stitches has quite a few brand new Leigh Designs florals and Halloween stand ups in the shop, as well as Leigh's Ashland Sky bags in the new pink color.

Kreinik is getting ready to head to the Nashville TNNA show (which is mostly cross stitch).  Which reminds me, Kreinik has a new copper wire "fabric" available.  See the second link below.

Ruth Schmuff shows off new (and some old) designs from Kimberly.  The biscornu were a club last year.  Now you can pick just one to stitch and enjoy.

Pocket Full of Stitches has new things from Anne Brinkley (as well as the classic Nativity tree which is one of Anne's masterpieces!) and Strictly Christmas posted on their blog.  If you need a hippo, giraffe or pig in a tutu (and who doesn't?!), this is the place.  Thanks, PFOS!

Needlepoint For Fun has canvases in stock from two new designers--Mindy Carpenter (top four designs on the page below) and...

Stitches, a NY based company with seven abstracts at the top of this page.  By the way, the Julie Mar pieces here are ones I've not seen before, either.  Good luck to the two new kids and to Julie, too~

BeStitched posted a video about Sundance's new Rayon Raffia.  You can see the colors in the video.  I'm told the raffia can be stretched and used in layers, but I haven't tried this myself.  Stay tuned!

Pocket Full of Stitches has quite a few new canvases from Alice Peterson I've not seen before, plus a few classic designs from Susan Roberts.  I love the dot and plaid patterned baby elephant from Alice!

Penny McLeod has a new round design on 13 count.  This is really large instead of being an ornament, by the way.

Apparently Needle Deeva has six small new Sugar Skull canvases.  Happy Day of the Dead!

The Wool and the Floss has posted a photo of some of DeElda's beginner kits.

Quail Run has updated their blog twice.  I missed yesterday's posting since their blog doesn't work with RSS feeds. You have to go to their website and look and I never remember.  Market Day 2 doesn't credit the designers but I think the amazing desert cactus pieces are from Sundance.

Quail Run's Market Day 3 report is here with classes the shop will be having.  More is promised for today.

The Painted Pony has uploaded photos of primitive landscape and animal canvases from their other new artist, Diane Ulmer Peterson.  If you love Ewe and Eye's style, you will love Diane's work.  I like the leaping sheep!

The Painted Pony posted a group of photos on FB of the amazingly detailed Santas from their newest artist, Lynne Andrews.  If you love stitching Santas, you'll want to look at these.  There are other designs as well.  Nice!

As you may have heard, there was a fire alarm (cigarette in the trash can of the men's room) at the trade show and everyone had to evacuate briefly yesterday.  No one was harmed but since smoking is illegal in public buildings in AZ, the smoker had better watch out.  Here are the owner of Dutch Treat and Kurdy Biggs of Threedles calmly waiting.

Here's Kurdy back in her booth, surrounded by her complex counted canvaswork designs from Threedles.

The Painted Pony has posted photos of their booth. It's big enough to throw a party in! (Bet they did, too!)
