Rhyddia's Needlecraft Links
These are listings of sites that are my personal favorite needlework and beading sites on the Web. If you know of a great site that I should take a peek at, please send me an e-mail with the URL!

Sites are selected based on one or more of the following criteria quality of merchandise or information, and visual appeal - I admit that not every site with impressive designs or merchandise is going to be a visually appealing Web site. A lot of these sites aren't visually appealing, but they're included here anyway. There are no sites on this list that have the words "Online Catalog" and then proceed to show you only three items. Face it, that's another peeve of mine.

If there is a feature on the site that I think you'd enjoy, I'll mention it in my comments area, plus any other pertinent information about the site.

Happy Stitching!
