Summer Queen

MD22

The stunning companion to Nora Corbett’s “Winter Queen”, the new “Summer Queen” also commands admiration all on her own. From the top of her golden chignon to the tip of her graceful writing plume to the hem of her heavy satin Tiffany-blue gown, she is a symbol of all that is glorious and perfect. Just like summer.

Fairy Tales

MD20

Once upon a time, in a field strewn with magical flower petals, a doting mother read a bedtime tale to her very littlest angel. A gentle breeze rustled her lacy gown, the golden child smiled, and they lived happily ever after.

Deco Spirits

MD19

If you’ve come to expect anything from Nora Corbett, it’s the unusual and unexpected, and her new “Deco Spirits” continues that tradition. Inspired by art deco architecture, the four spirits represent the elements of earth, fire, water, and air. Each features muted metallics in shades of seafoam, periwinkle, gold, and aubergine. Because they can be stitched and framed together or individually, “Deco Spirits” is the perfect choice for beginners or advanced stitchers, or anyone who appreciates a fresh, innovative design.

Stone Roses

MD17

Green ivy protectively encircles an angel turned to stone centuries ago, as she in turn stands guard over an enchanted garden, a pale pink sash forever fluttering at her waist. The drapery borders at her feet create a sampler effect, complete with mother-of-pearl buttons and fine white ribbon.

The Baby Boat

MD16

One tiny sister sleeps, another knits, and the third scatters pale pink rose petals on the glistening water as they drift lazily by in a rose-draped, swan-shaped boat. Their fuzzy hats and collars, innocent pastels and sparkling crystals make them an utterly charming trio. But will they be home in time for tea?

Winter Queen

MD13

Regal in pale periwinkle blue satin against a serene white background, this cool beauty’s upswept hair is adorned with purple violets beneath a beaded coronet. Whisper-white ermine trims her elegantly draped gown, and strands of blue beads lend an opulent touch to her hem. If you find beauty in a clear, quiet, blue-skied January day, you’ll love our Winter Queen.

Fairy Flora

MD7

Sprightly and lithe, the tiniest of forest fairies flits among dew-covered flowers and berries. Barely bigger than a blossom herself, her dress is fashioned from fresh lavender petals, her wings from silvery cobweb silk, and her magic wand from a single falling star. Take care or you’re sure to fall under her magical spell with the first turn of your needle.
