Welcome to our home away from home. The Woolen Needle specializes in hand-dyed wool and reproduction cotton. We offer kits for quilting, wool applique, rug hooking, and punch needle. One-on-one help is always available. Classes for beginning wool applique, quilting, rug hooking, and punch needle are scheduled at your convenience. Gather your friends and give us a call to book a date in our classroom for the class of your choice. We invite you to shop the web-site, call or come and visit us in Williamsburg.
NEW Hello Summer Stitch-A-Long
A NEW Hello Summer Stitch-a-Long will begin the week of April 10, 2023! We invite you to join us for this fun stitch-a-long. Hello Summer is a 40″ x 50″ quilt, using wool applique on cotton homespun. The project consists of seven wool applique blocks with embroidery stitching, as well as a few pieced blocks, all in various sizes. Project includes two borders and binding cotton, for a complete quilt top. Instructions and patterns are included and shipping is free. Be sure to join the Threads of Folkart Facebook group for encouragement and information. More information can also be found by clicking “Hello Summer Stitch-A-Long”.
Hello Spring Stitch-A-Long
Our Hello Spring Stitch-a-Long went so well, that we are now offering it as a stitch-a-long OR as a complete kit. We are happy to be able to offer both options. We also have individual block patterns available to purchase. We are offering a pattern bundle, which includes all seven patterns at a discount. Pattern downloads are an option as well. If you are needing threads or other items for the stitch-a-long, they can still be purchased by clicking on Hello Spring Quilt. Thank you to all who joined us and continue to stitch with us. We appreciate you!
The Woolen Needle was featured in the Fall 2010 issue of “Quilt Sampler” magazine, published by Better Homes and Gardens. Our “Bountiful Harvest” pattern was featured with the article. Please visit the Fall 2010 Quilt Sampler Project page for ordering details.
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!
