Nashville Needlework Show Preview

Welcome to the 2019 Nashville Needlework Show Preview Page! In the past, we have worked to put up a page in our catalog from which to order, and we may still do that; however, this year we are starting with just a preview page. We will also have a display and notebook at Cross My Heart where you can see the previews that we have been given.

  • Abra Lowney 1825 is an adaptation of an antique I own, with a striking color palette and nice variety of stitches to explore. I will also have the original sampler with me in Nashville.
  • All Through the Night is based on the familiar folk song/lullaby, and charts for two separate versions on silk gauze and linen are both included in the chartpak.
  • Defining Spring is next up in the series introduced recently.
  • My Refuge is an elegant piece based on Psalm 91.
  • My Needle Berry (my personal favorite this time) with a silk gauze and linen version for each design.
  • Sunshine Berry is full of cheer! Also a silk gauze and linen version to choose from.

Isobel Argante

Tudor Maiden pattern decorated with Handmade Tudor Rose (that can be a scissor fob too). Displayed on handmade wooden shield. This pattern is completely inspired by the badge of queen Catherine Parr. You can order everything: the pattern, the wooden shield and also the hand made Tudor Rose. The Tudor rose is a scissor fob or a decoration it’s up to you to decide how to use it. In the cross stitch pattern is also included a cross stitch rose just in case you decide not to buy the Tudor Rose.

Picture This Plus

The folks at PTP have asked us not to post photos of their new fabrics online; however, we can show them in our shops. So – stop on by Cross My Heart to see the new lovelies! The new colors will be:

  • Heartland – a medium light brownish-gold
  • Demoiselle – a light playful wash of yellow and pink over a light blue background
  • Memory – a purple that has a touch of gray to it giving it an “aged” hue
  • Nessie – a medium light “watery” grayish-blue

The deadline for ordering these new and current PTP fabrics is January 25. We will only order quantities in quarter yard increments.

Summer House Stitche Workes

Summer House Stitche Workes is excited to announce the newest Fragments in Time series for 2019! These eight smalls were inspired by Shaker maps and gift drawings. The Shaker ideals of simplicity, industry, harmony and economy were woven into the fabric of their village life, from their buildings to their now famous furniture. They embraced innovation to make their tasks easier. Their maps and gift drawings that have come to us are exquisite examples of naiveté folk art. These Fragments embody their ideals, so take a stroll through a Shaker village via your needle! The first stops are the Orchard and the Workshop.
