Winter and Spring seasons are still available through Stave. The Stave Four Seasons include seventeen puzzles that connect to make up the entire set. Once assembled, the Four Seasons will depict a small village of shops surrounding the mystery center piece. The Fall season and Secret Center will be coming soon!

These puzzles are only available through Stave, just call us!
We hope to have them online soon.

Stave Does Window Treatments and More…

What’s a ‘window treatment’, you ask? Look below at the upper part of this cat-themed puzzle. The boxes of negative spaces are the windows…. no puzzle pieces fit into these empty spaces, which totally confuse most puzzlers. They are looking for pieces which fit around the cat tails and can’t find them.

Take a look at the sculpt in the light brown paper bag. This also in negative space, the whisker pieces having been thrown away.  By the way, the title of this puzzle is "Bag Ladies". Also, ace digital artist Melody added the cat heads to the border…. nice touch, Mel!Bag_ladies_2
