The New York Times this week had a great article on the health benefits of knitting, in case you missed it. And in it, it says this applies to most types of needlework and creative hobbies (such as needlepoint!)
The main thing that seems to come up again and again, is that if you are engaged in creative hobbies and using your hands and mind, that it helps keep your mind sharp, happier, and reduce stress. I find the second point to be quite true.
I feel lucky to work with customers who truly are almost always nice and patient people. They are often creating projects not for themselves but giving them to others and thinking about others first. This makes our work more rewarding, and also enjoyable, so to our customers, a big THANK YOU!
Onto the fun stuff, below are some amazing custom needlepoint projects recently stitched, and below that are some more customer reviews…
American Gothic Needlepoint Pillow next to a Custom Dog Needlepoint Pillow that we stitched
We stitched this custom needlepoint dog pillow for as a gift for Casey!
Denison Field Hockey and Lacrosse Needlepoint Stool stitched by Susan in CT
She did the background using the Diagonal Giant Scotch stitch.
Custom Needlepoint Christmas Stocking by Mary in California
I love the background stitches on the last two projects. They give extra detail and also make the projects quicker to stitch!
Custom Cat Needlepoint by Erica in Canada
We love to help create new designs, so if you are looking to needlepoint something that does not exist anywhere but your mind, please get in touch with us!
