"If, of thy mortal goods, thou art bereft,
And from thy slender store two loaves
alone to thee are left,
Sell one & from the dole,
Buy Hyacinths to feed the soul"
- Muslihuddin Sadi,
13th Century Persian Poet

"If I had but two loaves of bread
I would sell one of them
& buy White Hyacinths to feed my soul."
- Elbert Hubbard

It is nearly impossible to find time for ourselves in our modern world. And yet, it is so very important to remember how much we need to 'feed our souls'.

There are many ways people nourish themselves spiritually. If you are here, you probably do it the same way I do: with a needle and thread. There is nothing quite like having a flower bloom under your fingers in the middle of winter, or have a rabbit scamper in your lap. And embroidery feeds your soul twice: once while you are stitching it, and again while you are admiring it finished.

We hope that you will find as you wander our site many things to bring you joy. We have a variety of projects here, in different techniques and for different types of stitchers. We have many free designs and quick ideas for you to take right now, as well. If you keep checking back, you'll see we will be adding new ones continually.

Please note: we do not sell directly to customers. Please ask your local needlework shop to contact us if you would like something from us. If you are one of the many unlucky ones who does not have a local needlework shop, we will be happy to put you in touch with a shop that will ship to you.
