    At Hunt Country Yarns, you'll find a wide selection of beautiful handpainted canvases, with an emphasis on the country life, equestrian sports, foxes, and nature. Lots of needlepoint kits, too, from:

   Tapestry Tent
Beth Russell
Elizabeth Bradley
Danji Designs

as well as the Historic Charleston Foundation. We even have some prefinished "Stitch and Zip" kits that don't require any finishing.

    Whether you want a big canvas to work on all year or a small take-along project, we have them. Take a look at our featured canvas for inspiration.

    For stitching these we carry a large selection of Paternayan persian wool, luscious colorfast Needlepoint Inc. silk floss, Silk & Ivory and Vinyard Silk. And see how much steadier your stitching can be with one of our portable needlepoint frames from K's Creations.

NEW! We are excited to introduce Phillipa Turnbull's brilliant traditional Crewel Embroidery just now coming to us from England. This is the crewel work that you have been looking for but have been unable to find until now, with heritage quality linen and designs to suit the most skilled as well as absolute beginners. You may have heard of Phillipa as the designer who recreated the Queen Mother's Bedspread at Glamis Castle in Scotland. If you thrill to Old England, this is the project for you.



Maine International Textiles is now up to speed and have almost every color of paternayan in stock.
This yarn is now 100% made in the U.S. And, because of that there is no delay in the raw materials for dyeing.



If we don't have the color you're looking for we'll just order it.
