Final Days! Don't Wait! Canvas Remnants

Scarlet Thread will only be around for a few more days. After this weekend, the Catalog will be deactivated. Don't miss out on getting some last-minute deals on threads, thread packs, and now canvas remnants.

Check out the assorted sizes and colors we have in the Canvas/Congress Remnants section. These are nice-sized pieces of 18-ct mono canvas, some large enough to accommodate a 17" x 17" project. We even have a half-yard piece of Santa Fe Sage! Choose from Aquamarina, Black, Eggshell, Leventeen Blue, Mystical Midnight (hand-dyed), Pewter, Rose Blush, Sandstone, and Santa Fe Sage. In Congress Cloth, we have a few pieces in Sand, Dusty Blue, and Pewter.

Scarlet Thread has enjoyed being your one-stop source for all your canvaswork needs. Sara Leigh will continue with It's a Stitchy Thing, providing news and photos of what's new and exciting in the counted canvas world. Stay tuned.


  1. Sara, are the canvas/congress remnants gone? When I click on the category it comes up empty.

  2. Everything's been sold. I was out all afternoon, and on my return I found that there's nothing left. So sorry!

  3. Hi Sara,
    We miss you and your news. Whats been happening.
    Bye for now.

  4. Thanks, Carol. I miss the give and take I had with all of Scarlet Thread's customers.

    I've been reflecting, mulling over my options, trying to discern my next pathway. I'll be back to blogging in the very near future. One of the things I've been contemplating is how to handle Jeff Kulick's designs (consulting with Jeff himself). I've had orders that need to be filled, and just how I'm going to do that ongoing is the sticking point.

    I plan to feature what's new in the counted/charted needlepoint world and have in my hot little hands Kurdy Biggs's newest, "Pangea," which is quite lovely. I've collected the threads for the colorways and even made up my own. (That would make this design my very first Threedles project!) So look for that very soon.

    I hope that I can convince designers to send me information on their new designs so that I can pass that news along to you with as many pictures as possible of all the pretties you need to create them yourself.

    I'm thinking of merging my "Confessions of a Remedial Stitcher" blog with this one, so it will also be a report on my progress (sometimes lack of progress) on the assorted WIPs and UFOs I've accumulated while being a shopowner. I hope to finish several projects this year that have been languishing. And of course, I've signed up for two cyber classes, one of which I'm already behind on ("Mystique" beckons me from across the room). Hahahaha.

    So I appears that I'll be very busy, doesn't it? Who has time for work with all that on my plate? Which means retirement from the treadmill of a daily job. I won't miss the pressures that always seem to go along with that. Since I've worked from home for most of my life, that just means that the computer is no longer the office but back to being a window on the world and a source of entertainment and learning. I may even finally get around to designing some needlework again. Wait, now I've added something else to my list of things I want to do. Yes, I'll be very busy, won't I.

    All good, I believe.
