Stitching Sites

It may seem odd in some ways to find resources relating to old-fashioned handwork on the Internet, but then again, everything else seems to be here. Here are a few of the craft-related sites I like:

  • The Needle Nook on Briarcliff is a wonderful knitting shop. They carry Malabrigo and other yarns and their personnel are very helpful. I’ve enjoyed the classes I’ve taken there and hope to do more soon.
  • I only recently learned of String Theory Needlearts. They’ve got an extensive selection of fibers and fabric and Jackie is highly responsive to customers.
  • At one time, DMC was the only kind of floss I would use in my projects. I have pretty much every color of their standard floss and most of their metallic, rayon and variegated threads as well–it does make it much easier to start a project without a big shopping trip.
  • Kreinik makes most of the metallic fibers I use, as well as some fine silk threads.
  • Weeks Dye Works hand over-dye many fibers.
  • Mill Hill makes beads and treasures that add a special touch to projects.
  • I love, love, love working with Waterlilies variegated silk from The Caron Collection. They have cottons, blends, spun silk, and other fine fibers as well.
  • Rainbow Gallery carries alpacas, angoras, bamboos, cashmeres, silks, nylons—you name the fiber, they’ve got it.
  • The wooden finishing items from Sudberry House are gorgeous and easy to work with.
  • Needle in a Haystack’s personnel are marvelously helpful and my orders often arrive earlier than expected – even during the Christmas rush!
  • Herrschners has an incredible selection of supplies and patterns.
  • The people at Nordic Needle are very helpful, and their catalog is full of beautiful items that make me want to learn many new techniques.
