Luma from The Fibre Co is a swell yarn for our climate.  This DK comes in 137 yard hanks and is 50% wool, 25% cotton, 15% linen/flax, and 10% silk.

A Stone Point poncho is a great project for this yarn.  It takes seven skeins of Luma and is knitted on US 5, 6 and 7 needles.

Our Linen

In the realm of cross stitch, we carry hand dyed linen from

  • Picture This Plus
  • Lakeside Linens
  • Weeks Dye Works
  • Under the Sea
  • and others

Our Fibers

Our cross stitch fibers range from silk to cotton from dyers such as

  • Weeks Dye Works

  • Classic Colorworks
  • Gloriana, Needlepoint Inc.
  • and others

Our Patterns

We also have cross stitch patterns from amazing designers such as

  • and others

We also surround this with boxes from Lone Elm Lane, finishing pieces by Lady Dot, and again so much more.

We encourage you to bring your current project and join us for a morning or an afternoon. There are several comfy spots to sit (next to a cat or two), and there is always laughter and inspiration. There are also great antique shops, yummy places to eat, and a sense of stepping back in time, just outside our doors.

In a nutshell – we have a lot of great stuff! The journey is walking through the rooms of our amazing historic building and coming across another gem of luscious inspiration.

Enjoy and explore – and if you are interested in learning one of our crafts, we would love to help you learn as well!   Just call the shop to coordinate a time to come in.
