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: 

  • My favorite LNS has turned into my favorite online needle­work shop, Nease’s Needle­work. Susan Nease is won­der­ful­ly help­ful and incred­i­bly knowledgeable. 
  • 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.
