Valley Needleworks is located on Route 11 in Middletown, Virginia. The outside is very deceiving as you step back in time when you enter the Pre-Civil War log home. Inside you will find a plethora of cross stitch supplies, along with hardanger, punch needle, and huck embroidery/Swedish weaving.
This is our “Thread Nook” that is bursting with an assortment of colors from The Gentle Art, Weeks Dye Works, Classic Colorworks, The Caron Collection, Rainbow Gallery, Needlepoint Silk, Dinky Dyes, Gloriana, The Thread Gatherer and, of course, DMC!
The Valley Needleworks’ Team of Addict-Stitchers is Denise Thornton (Left), Jennifer Cave – Owner (Middle), and Karen Crowell (Right). We are dedicated to serving you with all of your needlework “addiction” needs!
Embellishments include Kreinik fibers, buttons, brass and silver charms, mother of pearl buttons and accessories, silk ribbon, frames, bell pulls, pretty pins, trims…a tremendous variety for all of your finishing needs! We have banding in an assortment of counts, colors, widths, and edgings. The fabric display is one of two that houses 7 to 55 count fabric, solid, hand-dyed, over-dyes, aida, linen, Huck, printed, Hardanger, punch needle, opalescent/silver, Ariosa, Dublin…the list goes on and on!
Charts, charts, and more charts! The stone chimney and log walls were unseen for many, many years until the lead-painted wainscoting, horse-hair plaster, and the square nailed slats were removed. The transformation has been incredible! The next task is to restore the room connected to the back of the home – the original 1½ story log cabin with another stone chimney.
As you walk in the front door, the hectic-outside world just melts away… aaaahhhh! We have an “unseen” presence from time to time – Katherine! Please say “Hello” to her when you visit. Straight ahead is the Fabric Table where we cut by the square inch.
Gatherings of needlework addicts abound; Needleworkers Anonymous meets one Saturday afternoon monthy; The Valley Stitchers meets one Saturday evening monthly; well taught classes are offered throughout the year. Stitcherhood = Free Therapy! We also have our Deal of the Month, trunk shows, and Meet & Greet the Designer opportunities for our customers.
Our wonderfully cozy register area is the spot to be on a hot and humid Virginia summer day—right in front of the air conditioner. Most of our needlework accessories are located here – scissors, Mill Hill products, our New Items, laying tools, needle minders, fobs, thread keepers, etc.
As we say at the shop—Always by Stitching ~Jennifer Cave
