Last weekend we had the pleasure of attending the Atlanta Spring Needlepoint Show in Atlanta, Georgia. We look forward to attending the show every year with a lot of anticipation and excitement. It’s such a great opportunity to connect with friends and the Planet Earth Fiber extended needlepoint family. But, we know that not everyone has the chance to attend, especially as it’s a wholesale trade show. That leaves out a lot of our fans! So today we wanted to share a little sneak peek at some of the fun products we saw. First, here are a few products we brought to the show that went really quickly. If you see a Planet Earth Fiber product you love here, don’t forget to talk to your LNS. They might have the product in stock, or may be able to request it from us. Find your Local Needlepoint Shop here.A selection of leather wallets featuring contrasting butterfly design These Planet Earth Fiber Butterfly Zip Wallets are so cute for spring and summer.

It was definitely the showstopper. It was available to bid on through silent auction at the show and was stitched using Waverly Wool from Brown Sheep Company.
