The Hoop & Needle is only the newest venture that originally started with Purple Hippo Stitches in 2009.  Purple Hippo Stitches is a line of cross-stitch patterns, kits and finished pieces designed by Sarah Fisher.  Her style involves snarky sayings, pop culture references and 4-letter words combined with antique cross-stitch motifs from various world traditions.

Today, we produce around 20 full kits and sell numerous PDF patterns.  We sell directly to the public and also wholesale to registered businesses.  If you are interested in carrying Purple Hippo Stitches, you can purchase with ease and convenience in our online Wholesale section.  If you are a new business, please email us at purplehippostitches@gmail.com to open an account and gain the password to our site. We look forward to working with you!
