Vic­to­rian Wooden Nee­dle Book "Bee Skep" Fern Ridge Col­lec­tions

$24.00 Nee­dles, nee­dles every­where and nary a one to find! This slightly mod­i­fied Sa­muel Tay­lor Co­leridge quote is one that stitch­ers every­where have ex­pe­ri­enced. Sit­ting down in a fa­vorite chair, fab­ric stretched, flosses picked and ready, but no nee­dle to be had. What if we had a bet­ter way to store our nee­dles, to keep them at hand, pro­tected and ready to pull thread through fab­ric? En­ter this el­e­gant and charm­ing Vic­to­rian Wooden Nee­dle Book "Bee Skep" needle­book from the lovely de­sign­ers, Pat and Peggy, at Fern Ridge Col­lec­tions. Del­i­cately carved and en­graved, this wooden show­piece fea­tures a buzzing bee skep on the front and a solid, sim­ple wooden re­verse. In­side, a piece of wool felt sits, ready to house nee­dles and pins alike. The wool felt also helps keep nee­dles free of rust and tar­nish. Avail­able in both the bee skep and a lily of the val­ley de­sign from Fern Ridge Col­lec­tion, the needle­book re­tails for $24. You can or­der it by vis­it­ing Fern Ridge Col­lec­tions at www.fer­n­ridgecol­lec­tions.com or at your lo­cal needle­work shop.

Wood Charm 4-Pack Cross Stitch Style

$3.99 It’s easy to dis­play fin­ished pieces in homes—on so­fas, walls, desks, hang­ing on oven doors, etc. But what if those in­tri­cately stitched pieces could be worn too? That’s ex­actly what the cre­ative team at Cross Stitch Style has ac­com­plished. The holes are pre-drilled and are just large enough for a ta­pes­try nee­dle and floss to eas­ily glide through to cre­ate a show­stop­ping piece of jew­elry. Use one of their in­cluded pat­terns, a mod­i­fied Just CrossStitch pat­tern, or cre­ate your own! You can whip up one of these to match nearly ev­ery out­fit and have your friends and co-work­ers won­der­ing where you scored such a unique piece! Cross Stitch Style’s pre­fin­ished pieces in­clude pen­dants, journal cov­ers, bracelets, trin­ket boxes, easels and rings, and they come in wood, metal and pa­per for back­grounds. All that is needed is a ta­pes­try nee­dle and a rain­bow of floss col­ors to com­plete the projects. Prices start at $3.99 for the pen­dants here; they are avail­able at Jo-Ann Stores and at lo­cal needle­work shops.
