Fabrics By Stephanie

 

Owner Stephanie Bishop began her love of stitching when she was taught to cross stitch at age 10. Wanting a special fabric for a new project, she realized she couldn't quite find what she wanted, so set about to dye her own. Soon after, friends began to request specific fabrics and Hand Dyed Fabrics By Stephanie was born! Stephanie's fabrics have been featured in several nationally known magazines and after attending her first wholesale market in 2015, has developed many relationships with designers whom have begun to design with her fabrics. Stephanie's passion is to supply inspirational fabrics and hopes to help you to bring your inspiration to life.

Meridian Designs

 

Karen McEwan is a married mom of two extraordinary and challenging kids. Her background training is in Fashion Design, but she spent years as a Travel Agent. She's been a cross stitcher since her teen years. Karen was encouraged by friends to turn her joy of stitching and artistic ability into new designs. Her style could be considered eclectic and quirky in some cases, artsy and romantic in others. She's also learned that she can turn almost anything into a bikini, but her real love is the beautiful ladies that she imagines. You can expect to see ladies of all shapes, sizes, and colors in her designs, as she believes everyone has their own beauty.

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.
