Nease's Needlework is pleased to welcome you here, and humbled you would visit! Please feel free to shop around; we've worked hard to make the features easy to use and representative of how you shop in a store. And thank you for continuing to keep the needle arts alive and provide a space for designers to sell their work.
I had such fun seeing the orders come in during the month of January that I've decided to have another special for the month of April. When looking over the products I noticed that I have a ton of the Teenie Tweenie patterns by The Sweetheart Tree. Sandra is a fantastic designer with difficult-looking motifs (but they're really not), and these patterns exemplify her talent. They are small patterns designed for a box or small picture, and each comes with a little sterling silver charm as an embellishment. They are very fast to stitch (having stitched several for shop samples over a weekend), and make great hostess or house warming gifts. They retail for $8.50 but for the month of April, all Teenie Tweenie patterns currently in stock will retail for $4.00 (April is the 4th month and it just seemed logical). Check the "Specials" box and order these terrific little designs! I'll keep you apprised of their shipping status and get them to you quickly.
We closed the brick and mortar store in August, 2008, so this website can help you purchase many of the items you saw in our store. To find something you want to buy, enter that item in the "Search" box to the right. Or click on the "New" link in the top left-hand box, and you can see what's newest on the site. Need something you don't see? Simply call (404) 380-1875 or e-mail me from your account, and I'll be able to respond within a day or so (I have a day job, you see . . .).
If you are interested in finding other fiber artists in your area, check out any local Guilds in your area. Thanks to the hard work of several dedicated individuals, there is now an organization called SEFAA, the Southeast Fiber Arts Alliance. Click on the link to find inspiration and classes you might want to join if you live in the Southeast US.
Sheepish has sadly closed its doors to customers, bringing to an end a tradition of a needlework or knit shop in downtown Decatur, GA. We certainly wish Carrie and her team all the best. Running a small business is difficult in the best of times. If you have a local needlework or knit shop in your area, please frequent them and do what you can to make their lives easier!
