On one side of Keepsake Quilting is Patternworks. On the other side is NeedleArt. This is all one big building. No website that I can find. The shop is a wonderful source for cross-stitch patterns.
Farther in you will find the most gorgeous crewel and ribbon embroidery supplies. They carry hoops, videos, patterns and some of the most awesome kits I have ever seen. I just had to buy another crewel kit. It is a 15" x 30" linen with a vase of magnolias to stitch. It has the nicest palest shades of terra cotta, pink, yellows and greens. There is also some very subtle metallic threads running thru it as well. I can't wait to start it.
I also bought a bunny! Couldn't resist him. He's 12" tall with Jacobean designs to stitch on him, then he gets stuffed. Go here, he's the only bunny on the page.
This is not where I bought him, just showing you what I got.
Then, I found a neat little kit for ribbon embroidery. I have never tried it before so I bought a little floral brooch to make. It's a beginner project. Click here, it's the fifth one down. Cute I think.
As you can imagine, I had a ball. If I ever go back that way I will definitely find my way to Centre Harbor. LOL.
With garment sewing and my quilt to start, I am set for the winter I think.
