New Needlepoint Products – January 2013

With TNNA only ten days away, many designers are showing off their newest products on their website. Starting today and until the week after the show, I’ll be having articles about what’s newest.

Barbara Bergsten has lots of new designs out. You probably have seen the charming stitches Santas which will appear at their first show. In addition to this, Barabara has a whole slew of sorority items, including shifts and pumpkins. There are also pink & green pumpkins, more shifts, and charming monograms on pink gingham.

Pocket Full of Stitches is showing off new canvases by Ruth Schmuff. There is a big series of different fairy tale scenes including ones from Snow White, Pinocchio, and Red Riding Hood. In addition there are new shoppers canvases and a charming European silhouette canvas.

Canvas Art by Barbi is a relatively new company I first saw at Phoenix last year. She has 2 pages of new designs (page 1 and 2) including a delightful new series of initial canvases, frame weights and tote inserts.

Pajamas and Chocolate features hand-painted canvases by Patt Large. Their new designs feature more of their patterned patchwork animals. There are also monochrome patterned belts and a new series of holiday cats.

Pocket Full of Stitches has also posted about the new designs from Princess & Me. As always, these are pictures of the stitched models because each of their designs comes with a stitch guide. Highlights include a bride & groom that’s quite clever, several seasonal/holiday owls, and a lime-green Santa on a candy cane.

Needledeeva has a page dedicated to their newest designs. I’m just crazy about the Halloween lollypops and the different series of birds. Vicky DeAngelis’s stitch guides for their Thanksgiving figures will be premiering at the show as well.

The popular artist Susan Wallace Barnes will be doing a series of seasonal doors for Copper Oaks. Patt & Lee has many new canvases including lots of cats, witches’ hats, elf boots, along with an absolutely wonder Kachina doll with a Christmas tree.

Patti Mann has announced that she is reissuing her Russian Nesting Dolls Nativity. A summary of new products is at the top of the What’s New page. The information about the dolls is not posted yet.

Please remember that often new items have not been put on websites. I will only post a link if I have verified that the items premiered are there. Also remember that most shops will only see these designs at the show. If you see something you want, the best strategy is to call or email your shop and ask them to order it.

These designs will be appearing in your shops in the next few weeks.
