Welcome to Glendon Place - a cross-stitch and counted thread design company offering unique and finely-detailed charts for the most discriminating stitcher, as well as the occasional needleart enthusiast. Glendon Place offers designs in a variety of topics, which means you're sure to find something you like and just can't live without! Some designs simply require ordinary floss and a solid color of fabric, while others are more challenging and suggest using an over-dyed fabric, and may incorporate variegated floss, metallic braid and embellishments such as seed beads, buttons or glass/crystal treasures. Choosing to stitch a Glendon Place design will result in a needleart piece of heirloom quality that will be enjoyed by you, as well as family and friends for year to come.
The creative juices are flowing and there is a lot going on in the Glendon Place design studio as I prepare for the 2016 Nashville Needlework Market that takes place March 4-6, 2016. In as little as a few weeks here's what's coming and what you have to look forward to: 
GP-226 Carpe Noctis - Everyone is familiar with the Latin phrase "Carpe Diem", which means "Seize the Day". Well, here is an early treat for all the Halloween fans out there.  Carpe Noctis is Latin for "Sieze the Night". This design also introduces three new hairy black creatures to the Glendon Place family that are really quite endearing. Design stitched on PTP 28ct Murky with 17 colors of Sullivans/DMC/or Anchor floss and 1 color of Caron Collection Waterlilies. Design size 162w X 118h.
GP-227 Medley of Carols - The Christmas sampler folks will love this one. This is a rather large design (291w X 220h), however, is designed in 12 individual vinettes, so you pick the ones you want to stitch or stitch them all as one large sampler.  Or, pick your favorite and stitch it as a pillow top. Includes vintage carols such a Silent Night, White Christmas, Silver Bells and O Christmas Tree, to name a few. Stitched on PTP 28ct Crystal Conifer with only 5 colors or Sullivans/DMC/or Anchor floss and 3 colors of Mill Hill Beads.
GP-229 Frosty's Carrot Caper - The produce manager encounters Frosty in a precarious position as he is literally "caught picking his nose".  A fun and cute play on words with a detailed visual to match.  Stitched on PTP 28ct Dwarf with 43 colors of Sullivans/DMC/or Anchor floss and 1 color of Rainbow Gallery Petite Treasure Braid. Design size 136w X 97h.
GP-228 Star Light, Star Bright - The first in a series of vintage nursery rhymes that we all grew up with and remember fondly. "Star light, star bright, the first star I see tonight, I wish I may, I wish I might, have the wish I wish tonight." Stitch on PTP 28ct Jay (New color for 2016) with 5 colors of Sullivans/DMC/or Anchor floss and 3 colors of Kreinik #4 Very Fine Braid. Stitch count 116w X 118h.
GP-230 - Simply Love - For all the A-Maze-ing Dessert lovers out there who really enjoy mandalas or stitching with those wonderful Dinky-Dye threads, here is a new design that will surely steal your heart away. A Baroque-style heart with flowers, stitched on PTP 28ct Bashful, with 7 colors of Dinky-Dyes silk floss, 4 colors of Mill Hill Beads and a lovely Glass Treasure embossed heart in the center of the design.  Definitely stunning and one you will want to display year-round. Stitch count 186w X 152h. A wonderful compliment to a feminine bedroom.

As a courtesy to stateside stitchers who do not have a Local Needlework Shop (LNS) in their area, or international stitchers who do not have access to Glendon Place designs, please feel free to place an order. However, whenever possible, I would prefer that you support your LNS or many of the Online Needlework Shops (ONS) that are readily available and listed in the Shop Locator section to the left. Refer to Order Info for Stitchers to obtain additional information regarding terms of payment and estimated shipping charges.

You will find design details in the Catalog section by category. Click on the individual designs and you will have access to very detailed information about the materials needed for a design. Most of the shops listed in the Shop Locator section have these materials on hand or are more than happy to order them for you.
I invite you to spend as much time as you like browsing and hope that you enjoy your visit!
