The Nebby Needle
My daydream of becoming a cross-stitch designer became a reality at the 2010 Shepherd's Bush Retreat in Park City, UT after showing Barb and Alma (of Blackbird Designs) a piece of theirs that I "expanded". Alma asked if I designed and I said "no, I just change everybody else's". She told me I was ready...and The Nebby Needle was born in October of 2010!
I offer cross-stitch designs using overdyed linens, threads and trims combining styles of traditional, whimsical and prim. I also have some "handmades" (pillows, pins, pincushions, scissor fobs, floss cards) and packaged embellishments (buttons, baubles, crushed walnut shells, lavender and trims) for your finishing pleasure.

Romy’s Creations is an Italian company run by Romina Petrucci. She started dyeing threads in 2007 just for her own pleasure, then she noticed that all her stitching friends liked and wanted to buy them so she began to do it more “seriously.” Little by little, her business grew to a point that in 2011 she attended her first needlework show in Italy and in 2015 the first one in the US.
She says : “Color is my life, my love and passion. I’ve always had a brush or a pencil in my hand….so, after I started dyeing my own line of threads, drawing my own designs was the next step. I needed to show how my colors brought life to needlework. Join me in a class or in my booth to discover my colorful world made of threads, charts and cute handmade needlework accessories!”
Karen began her design business while working for a home party company that sold needlecrafts. She is known for her motif samplers, gleaning inspiration from quilts, nature and her surroundings.

Silver Creek Samplers
Needing an outlet in which to channel her creative energy, following the completion of twelve years of work as an art director for a quilt magazine, founder of Silver Creek Samplers, Diane Grick, discovered that designing her own cross stitch patterns came naturally. Cross stitch was an art form Diane had initially undertaken as a hobby a few years before learning to quilt. After three years of creating her own patterns, in 2009 she made the decision to contact a distributor, who immediately accepted her patterns, and to the delight of many, Diane hasn’t looked back since. She describes her original counted cross stitch designs as fun & folksical (a blend of folksy and whimsical).
