Oregon Stitcher

I just received my first two kits from "The French Needle" and OMG they are awesome. I must tell you, your stash is not complete without one of these kits!!!!!! Even my DH was impressed!!!! Even though he is sure our kitchen will be a different color by the time I finish them!!!

New Hampshire Stitcher

I feel like a child in a candy shop since finding your website.

Customer in Maine

Hello, I just last night had a chance to sit down and really peruse my beautiful new alphabet books, they are really lovely. I can't wait to stitch something from them, now if only I can find the time!!!! Thanks so much for making them available to those of us here in the US. I have your site bookmarked so that I can pop over to it and see what else I may "need". I hope that your endeavor is doing well, I'll continue to spread the word.

Tennessee Needleworker

...I am so happy because my little parcel came from you today. .... More than I imagined. Thank you so much.

Stitcher from the United Kingdom

Love, love everything I have received!! Your designs are always worked on when they come and do not sit in a folder waiting for me to be inspired to do them 'someday', My wish list for The French Needle is really long. Thank you so much for such a beautiful selection.

Customer from the Midwest

"I ordered the Rouge du Rhin alphabet book last month and wanted to tell you how pleased I am. I was anticipating something wonderful and was right. This book lends itself to heirloom stitchery and I can hardly wait to finish the birthday project for my sister and start one for my daughter. I already have a long wish list for The French Needle."

Stitcher from the US

The two Sophie gems arrived today and they are just stunningly beautiful! The fine craftsmanship and gorgeous colorways are mesmerizing! Wow!! I'm thrilled. Thanks for everything and I'll stop back soon to shop some more on your wonderful site :) So many fine things to wish for :)
