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 years to come.

 

Introducing the Baroque Beauties Collection

A new floral collection inspired by the artistic style of the 1600-and-1700′s

 

Baroque was a period of artistic style (from 1600 to about 1750) that used exaggerated motion and clear, easily interpreted detail to produce drama, tension, exuberance, and grandeur in sculpture, painting, architecture, literature, dance, music and especially fashion. Baroque in fashion was ruled by indulgence and ornate embellishments, much like the lush brocade fabrics of the kings and queens. Consequently, these floral designs do not look like traditional flowers, but are intentionally much more glitzy and use embellishments of metallic threads, beads and crystal treasures. The names for these designs were selected based upon popular women’s names during that time period.

The next set of releases at Glendon Place will be Halloween 2014 -  kicked off with the “Eerie Express” – an old locomotive steam engine brimming with ghosts and ghoulies! It will be a must-have for the Glendon Place Halloween fans! I also have a special surprise for the Autumn and Fall lovers — I will give you a hint … it will be “ala Round” spectacular!

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!
