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.

Weekly Spotlight: Halloween 2018

Wednesday, September 5th, 2018

If you have shopped our catalog or website you know we have Halloween fever – and although our Fall/Halloween catalog isn’t here for long, it is full of charm and style. Today we are spotlighting Halloween items that will make this October 31st the most decorative one yet. And since we couldn’t quite narrow our selection down to five, we’ve included a bonus sixth item to Spotlight. Let’s get into it.

Dog & Cat Trick or Treaters Pillow | Mary Lake Thompson | Sturbridge Yankee WorkshopThese two pillows each bring something different to your festive home. Artist Mary Lake Thompson designed the one on the left, which features a dog and a cat all dressed up for trick-or-treating. This pillow is soft enough for your indoor furniture and fade resistant in outdoor spaces. The hooked wool pillow below should only be placed indoors, but its simple design allows the seasonal message and imagery to shine.
