An Important Announcement from Annette: On December 26, 2022, a water line burst in the upstairs of the building which houses The Woolen Needle. There is some structural repair of the building underway. We have closed our in-store shopping for a short time until these repairs can be completed. We will continue to operate our online store and keep you all informed when we re-open the shop. If you would like to receive email updates regarding the repair process, as well as new products we are offering, please sign up for our newsletter below. Also, our Hello Spring Stitch-a-Long is still underway and on schedule. We hope you join us! Thank you for your patience, understanding, and support during this time. We appreciate our loyal customers so much and are very thankful for you. We hope to have our doors open again soon!
Welcome to The Woolen Needle
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.
Hello Spring Stitch-A-Long
We are so excited to begin our Hello Spring Stitch-A-Long and we would love to have you join us! This is a NEW spring design, a 42″ x 52″ quilt, using wool applique on cotton homespun. It is a short time commitment, just three months! But at the end of three months, we will complete the quilt and it will be ready to display for spring! This is not a mystery quilt. However, we will be stitching right along with you. The blocks will be revealed and photos will be shared, along the way. Photos and information will be posted on our Facebook page, as well as on the Facebook Group, “Threads of Folkart”. You can request to join this group on Facebook. Be sure to answer the security question in order to be “approved”. This stitch-a-long includes the patterns, instructions, wool, and cotton homespun to complete seven blocks in various sizes, as well as a few pieced blocks, two borders, and binding cotton. Shipments will be sent monthly (for three months), providing the items you need to stitch-a-long with us. Sign up is available now through March 10, 2023. The first shipment will go out on January 13, 2023 (for pre-orders), or when you place your order (if after January 13, 2023), and monthly following your sign up date. Click the words, “Hello Spring Stitch-A-Long”, to see more details. We would love to have you join us and stitch into the new year together!
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!
