The Needlework Show is like an online “trunk show” with a bunch of companies participating. The interesting thing about it for the average needlework consumer is that you can get a good look at what the different design companies are offering to your favorite needlework shops this year.
So, for example, if you like the little tiny kits from the Sweetheart Tree and you want to see what the Sweetheart Tree has out this year, you can check The Needlework Show. Find The Sweetheart Tree on their list of vendors, click on the link, and voila! There you are at the Sweetheart Tree “display” on The Needlework Show website.
It’s not just vendors of needlework kits that you’ll find – you’ll find thread vendors such as DMC, Dinky Dyes, Thread Gatherer, Needlepoint, Inc. Silks (under NeedleXpress), and others. Many of the vendors carry accessories, too – neat thread winders, scissor fobs, and so forth.
But this is the thing: The show is only open to the general public (that’s you and me) until this coming Monday, October 22nd. So if you want to take a look at what the various designers and vendors are offering this time of year (so that you can see if your local needlework shop carries the things or if you can order them… or so that you can find them online….) you have to browse the show this weekend!
If you have time, browse through The Needlework Show this weekend – if nothing else, you’ll probably find some great sources for inspiration!
