Look what came in this week!

The Needlepoint Book, Third Edition has arrived.  This book is so thorough it is nicknamed The Needlepoint Bible.  There are 131 color photos of stitched canvases that provide tons of inspiration.  If you don’t have this book in your needlepoint library, you are missing a great resource.
