Weekly Spotlight: Holiday & Winter Pillow Preview

Wednesday, October 17th, 2018

This week’s spotlight is on five pillows from our Holiday 2018 catalog that will make the colder months more charming and comfortable. Here in New England, we are used to the “Ready or not, here it comes” approach to winter, so we figured a preview of the next season wouldn’t hurt.

Hand Hooked Wool

New to our selection of hand hooked wool pillows, the following three characters are whimsical and charismatic. Artist Mary Lake Thompson designed both the Corgi with Juniper and Ribbon Kitty pillows, which feature pops of red and holiday-ready pets. The Sledding Black Lab brings some action to your home decor, and would make a great gift for a friend.

Polyester-Linen

The durability of polyester with the softness and aesthetic of linen, the Snowy Sheep Pillow combines a delightful snowy, sheepish scene with a Merry Christmas message.

Needlepoint

And last but certainly not least, the return of needlepoint to our catalog! Artist David Carter Brown designed this fun imagery of two snowmen on skis for your mountain lodge, cozy cottage or country farmhouse.

Wild Turkeys Print

Most of the trees in this Bonnie Fisher print may be without leaves, but the flock of turkeys is enjoying the season all the same.

Monday Must-Haves: Early Holiday 2018

Monday, September 17th, 2018

That’s right – the holiday season has arrived at Sturbridge Yankee Workshop. But we won’t bombard you with Santas and snowmen just yet; these must-haves are still all about the harvest season.

Turkey & Gourd Felt Applique Pillow | Sturbridge Yankee WorkshopTurkey & Gourd Felt Applique Table Runner | Sturbridge Yankee Workshop

This coordinating Pillow and Table Runner feature rustic colors and hand appliqued turkeys and gourds. Bother feature charming blanket stitches and the Runner has fun penny details on either end.

Its Good to be Home Wreath Sign | Sturbridge Yankee WorkshopLeafy Shade Iron Table Lamp | Sturbridge Yankee Workshop

Now you don’t have decided between a welcome sign and a seasonal wreath. The preserved wreath surrounding the charming sentiment on this wall art features corn husk, yellow yarrow, safflower and chili peppers.

Turkey Gourd Tealight Holder | Sturbridge Yankee Workshop

Another must-have is our Leafy Shade Iron Table Lamp. This sleek, simple and complementary lighting solution is topped with a decorative shade with preserved leaves pressed onto the paper.

Last but certainly not least is the Turkey Gourd Tealight Holder. These handcrafted gourd accents are always fun for autumn and Thanksgiving decorating, since they offer a natural, seasonal and rustic look to displays and centerpieces. As always, use a flameless tealight with this turkey; he’s made of real dried gourds after all. And if you would like to get a behind-the-scenes look on the creation of these characters, click here.
