at Julie's Cross Stitch
We have a great new look at Julie's

creating a sewing theme with our graphics.
We have been very busy adding new products to our store. In
addition to the huge assortment of cross stitch supplies, we also offer
many Swedish Weaving and Hardanger supplies.
Weaving or Huck Embroidery is a type of surface stitching. The
needle and floss never pierce the back of the fabric. It is an
easy, fun, quick way to decorate many household items like pillows,
towels, placemats, table cloths and runners, curtains and just about
anything else you can think of. I have added several
and fabrics to my store that are perfect for Swedish Weaving.
Fabrics for Swedish
is a type of embroidery that was made popular in the Hardanger region of
Norway. It is a combination of satin stitch, drawn work, cut
work, white work, needle weaving, and even cross stitch.
Fabrics for Hardanger:
