Needle Delights was originally a shop owned by the Rees family. It was closed in October 2011 in order for Kathy to devote 100% of her time to her Originals. She is now available as a Traveling Teacher and is developing Teaching Projects as well as patterns available to everyone.
There are still some items available from closing the shop. Many of the models are for sale. Click Models For Sale to see what is still available. Click HERE for charted needlepoint listings. Items will continue to be listed under the "Close-Out" menu as I add them.
