Dream Big Little Mermaid - the floss list is incorrect on some charts. Please use the following information: A is E3949, B is 793, C is 4030 and D is 3810. All are DMC colors.
Willamina's Woolens - the fabric color used in the model should read Ocean Traditional not Midnight.
Sunflower Street - for the letter P - the floss color should be 744
In some situations, we may be able to accomodate custom sizes on our hand-dyed fabrics. It will be considered on a case by case basis. Please contact us for individual pricing.

Every computer, tablet, phone - represents color in a different way. Typically, this is no where near what the color actually looks like in person. Please do not base your fabric choice on the image you are seeing - for every listing, there is a DMC floss reference. Please use THIS information when deciding on a color for your project. But also remember that even this is just a reference. The hand-dyed fabric is just that - it is dyed entirely by hand - not mass produced in a factory some where. Each and every piece will be slightly different. We are also available for help and suggestions, please contact us and we will be happy to provide assistance.
We use two different methods to dye our fabric.
The Colet method of dyeing (a brush-on technique) is used for the Aida fabric in the BD Group. This technique produces a higher saturation of color and darker colors with heavier shading. The colors can be a light and dark version of the same color or a mixture of two or three different colors. The fabric itself retains the sizing, is stiffer and has virtually no wrinkles.
A traditional dip dye technique is used for the Aida in the DD Group, as well as, the Linda, Lugana and Linen fabrics. This technique produces softer color variations and a more solid color appearance with a bit of marbling. The fabric itself has a softer feel and will have some wrinkling.
We ship on the same day that the shipping label is printed. We cannot control how long it takes for USPS or Fed Ex to get the item to you. Since Covid, there have been delays in customers receiving the orders. However, items are rarely actually lost in the mail. In the event that USPS marks an item as "in transit, arriving late" - we will not issue a refund or mail a new item out until at least 30 days have passed with out any updated tracking information. After 30 days, we will assume the item is truly lost in the mail and a new item will be shipped or a refund will be issued. In the event that USPS says an item has been delivered when it has not been - it is the buyers responsibility to contact USPS and file a claim for a lost item.
Because of the nature of these items, we cannot accept returns for:
- custom orders
- digital downloads
- "short cut" fabrics
- paper charts
- clearance or special buy items
We do not do exchanges. If you receive your order and it does not meet your needs, please contact us within seven days to discuss a return. (See the list above for items that may not be returned). We will discuss the options and do our best to work with you.
We do offer a wholesale program for brick and mortar stores and designers. This program is limited to Vintage NeedleArts products only (hand-dyed fabric, hand-dyed trims, needle minders, buttons and other embellishments). Please contact us for more information about our wholesale program.

Love this sample set and the ability to accurately choose colors I might need for future projects. The samples are just large enough to do some sample stitching on them.

Thank you so much! It will be such a help having all of your colors in my hands when choosing a new fabric to stitch on!

So glad I purchased this sample kit. There were a few projects that I wanted a specialty fabric but wasn't sure what color I should use. This sample set is perfect for deciding the colors, and although small, I will be able to do a small motif or teensy sampler on each one to see how the colors work. Thanks or offering this set. It was a bit to spend up front, but will save money in the long run by ensuring I pick the right colors. The one thing I would have liked was maybe a small piece of an opalescent color as I can't visualize what that would look like. I'm sure I'll eventually order one no matter what. :-)
