Sewing Resources

Have you tried needlepoint, cross stitch or possibly counted crossstitch but found that they were not quite what you were looking for? Punch needle embroidery is a different way to decorate fabrics for a variety of projects. From small bags and pouches to larger pieces, it can be a lot of fun and its easy to learn! You can even frame your work as art to decorate your walls!

We’ve located a short introductory video. Take a few minutes and enjoy this clip.

Has this whetted your appetite? Does it look interesting? Would you like to give it a try? We can help you get started! Give us a call at 518-695-4867 and we can set up a time to help you.

We can also provide you with all the tools and materials you need for these projects. 

What could be even more fun? Bring a friend or an entire group of friends!


The Smocking Arts Guild of America provides resources for people to preserve and foster the art of smocking and related needlework.

Sadly, the nearest NY chapters are 2-5 hours away. Members here in the Capital District have to travel to Long Island or near Syracuse or head over to Massachhusetts or Connecticut to attend meetings and events. However, if more of us Capital District New Yorkers join, perhaps someday soon we can have enough local members to have our own chapter.

Take a visit to their website for more information and membership information.
