NeedlePaint Newsletter - October 2011

This month we are happy to announce the launch of our Personalized Needlepoint Shop.  This shop features many great designs for Christmas ornaments, Christmas stockings, and Wedding Ring Bearer Pillows.  All of these were designed so that your names and even your photos can be easily incorperated into the canvas.  If you have any suggestions or ideas for new personalized projects, we would love to hear them!
Happy stitching,

NEW Personalized Needlepoint Shop

Recently we have launched a new personalized needlepoint shop!  In this shop there are many pre-designed Christmas needlepoint canvases to which customers can add their own names and also have the shop modify the colors before printing.  Many of the designs even incorporate a space for photos into the canvas design.  If you are looking for a great gift that is fast, look at our Christmas ornament designs below.

Fast and Fun Christmas Ornaments

Christmas is only two months away, but you can still begin that special needlepoint gift – a personalized needlepoint Christmas ornament. My new design was inspired by metallic threads and a shimmering gold fabric I saw at JoAnn’s.  The needlepoint canvas section is a  2.5 x 10 inch band to done in a variety of stitches selected from one of my favorite reference books...  Read More

Needlepoint Napkin Rings

I have to admit that I am addicted to cloth napkins. It is so bad that when we travel we take our own cloth napkins to our vacation rentals. Last winter my husband and I rented a house on the beach in Molokai, Hawaii, and we had several couples visiting. I got tired of trying to remember whose napkin was whose. It was time for custom needlepoint napkin rings with an Hawaiian theme.  Read More

Quick Stitches

By Peggy Bond: 
With December rapidly approaching, I realized that I was going to have to speed up if my goal of 12 needlepoint ornaments for Christmas gifts was to be met. I have now completed 5 and my needle is flying.

The key to speed – quick backgrounds!  Three fast background stitches came from The Needlepoint Book by Joe Ippolito Christensen.

Wedding Ring Bearer Pillow Shop

We've been blogging about our ring bearer pillow for the last 4 months, but now it seems that people are starting to plan for 2012 weddings.  We have designed and made 4 new ring bearer pillow canvases over the last 3 weeks, and we just created a special ring bearer pillow section in our ETSY shop.  These make great gifts for the special couple and will hold cherished memories in their new home.  These will soon be coming to our shop, too!

Finishing has teamed up with an expert stitcher whose rates are quite reasonable.  Our rates are the best I know about that are stitched in the USA.  Prices range from $2 to $3 per square inch!  Also, don't forget about our pillow finishing.  We are working on quite a few pillows right now, and we've really been happy with them.
