If you need all four threads for this kit, order the thread kit.  The threads are also available individually in the drop down menu in case you already have some of them.

We find the Appli-Fuse Mats very helpful to applique wool pieces.  Check out our Appli-Fuse Mat for ordering information.  We also love the Famore Scissors to cut wool, as well as a chalk marker to mark the wool.

This pattern can also be used to make the gnome and holly into ornaments as shown in the photo and displayed on the green baskets.

A Note from Annette…

Stitching takes me to my happy place! And I think about all the friends I have made over the past number of years. I look at these friendships as pieces of my Life Quilt. The goal at The Woolen Needle is to continue to inspire and share creativity with everyone who visits the website or walks through our door.  I would love to have you join us!
