Oh how wonderful it is!! Judith Baker Montano's embroidery and crazy quilt stitch tool book is now a part of my own" Must Have's" collection and because I love it so much, I wanted to share it with my Nutmeg Hare friends! It should belong in all our wool and stitching rooms as it is the perfect reference guide for hand needlework.

At Nutmeg Hare, needles are of utmost importance, hence one must have a variety of choices handy in the pincushion. These John James Sharps needles in the size 7 size have become my favorite for 2 strand embroidery thread stitching. From wool applique to lettering and embroidery, I love the length and eye size of these needles. Not to mention that they are of the finest quality English needle, plus with 20 needles per card, you can even misplace one or two and still be happy!
This primitive orange shade of beautiful hand dyed cotton ric rac is not only ideal for embellishing your stitching projects, it was the perfect clothesline for "The House on Misty Moon Road" wool appliqué pattern. Available as a 1 yard piece of 1/4" baby ric rac.
Look at these adorable little metal tins!....Perfect for that single ball of Perle cotton thread. Keep it safe for on the go projects or store individual rolls and admire them through the clear lid topper ...OR ... be creative and store tiny little wool scraps and wool pennies or perhaps even pins. Just another fun little storage idea from Nutmeg Hare for those precious threads and "needfuls" that we all love!!

It's new scissor time at Nutmeg Hare! What a great little pair these Fiskars 5" Micro-Tip scissors are. Perfect for intricate detail cuts, getting in those tight spots, and best of all they cut all the way to the tip. What did I ever do without them? Well, no more need to ponder on that question as they are such a welcome addition to Nutmeg Hare's or for that matter any scissor collection! High grade, precision-ground, stainless steel blades for long lasting sharpness. You will love them!
Yes, another lovely day indeed...Not only can we enjoy the Cosmo embroidery floss color card, but we can also delight in the Cosmo Seasons floss color card. Nutmeg Hare has them both and with all the beautiful Cosmo threads available, deciding which to choose or substitute is right before our eyes. Be inspired with all the gorgeous variegated samples of the actual threads in the Cosmo Seasons floss line. It's a color card like no other! (does not contain the Cosmo six strand embroidey threads which is a separate color card also available at Nutmeg Hare)
With a love for all things stitching related, Nutmeg Hare definitely adores scissors of all kinds. Hence when it comes to both beautiful and useful, Gingher scissors broke the mold. Trimming fabrics and threads and snipping those loose ends is easy-peasy with these spring- action nippers. The finger loop provides stability for control while the sharp point reaches easily into tight spots and can pull threads up for cutting. The double plated chrome over nickel blade finish is shrinking and durable. Enjoy your nippers for a lifetime of stitching delight!
Nutmeg Hare not only loves wools, threads, buttons, and stitching needles, but wonderful scissors as well! So... to satisfy the scissor collector craving we have the wonderful Klasse antique scissor and tape measure set. These 4 1/2" antique scissors and 60" retractable fiberglass tape measure with magnetic back are not only pretty, but also handy for your stitching adventures. Packaged in a lovely gift box, choose to treat yourself, or choose to share this ideal stitcher's gift with a friend....That is only if you can part with it!

Needles are just another fun stitching goodie to collect...and when I saw this fun little case with a variety of needles inside, I had to share it with my stitching friends. This wonderful little "pebble" contains a set of 6 chenille needles sizes 18/ 22 ideal for threading perle cotton threads. The adorable misty gray snap-close case makes it easy and convenient to take with you and secures your needles while away. John James Pebble chenille needles also makes a great gift for your stitching friends.
These doll making needles are a "must have" when embroidering your raggedy and santa face features. They are also the perfect choice for stitching on buttons for eyes as well as attaching raggedy's locks, whether you choose braids, curls, or just straight ends. These Piecemaker fine sewing needles, come in my favorite length of 3 1/2", which I find much easier to handle than the really long doll needles. Enjoy the package of three as you will not have to fret when one needle accidentally disappears...and we all know how quickly this can happen.
