Greetings from HON

Happy Labor Day! As the weather starts to cool with the arrival of fall, it is time to turn off the air conditioner and open our doors. What better way to keep them open than a needlepoint brick doorstop? This is a classic needlepoint finish that never disappoints. Did you know the first doorstops came into use in about 1775 following the introduction of a type of hinge designed to close a door automatically, the rising butt. Visit us to see the bricks we have in stock and peruse our brick catalog with endless designs. There is something for everyone!

We look forward to seeing our friends this fall, old and new, those returning from summer destinations and those who have more time on their hands with kids going back to school!

STITCH OF THE MONTH

TINY MILANESE COLUMNS STITCH VARIATION

Our customer Allison M. created this fantastic variation of Tiny Milanese Columns. The extra row of white between the woven columns makes this stitch a little less busy. By using it in her background she has created a wonderful wallpaper effect behind her extraordinary pink roses.

TIP OF THE MONTH

Thread Magic
 
Use this thread conditioner to prevent tangling and fraying of your needlepoint fibers. This conditioner also strengthens fibers while eliminating static. Simply run your fiber through the jar, thread your needle and off you go!
