Official blog of www.NeedlePaint.com – where you can design your own Needlepoint Kit!

Labor day is here, and while it is sad to see summer coming to a close, we’re feeling very blessed and happy to help design more great new needlepoint projects.

Here is some feedback from our customers last week:

“My needlepoint came this afternoon.  It looks awesome. Hopefully I don’t mess it up too badly. Thanks for all of your help.”  Lynette 8-25-2014

“Loved my belts  They were on my doorstep today” Becky 8-25-2014

“I love them~!” Anna 8-25-2014

“I have finished the canvas and love how it came out. Thanks for your help!” Margo 8-24-2014

Before we get to the Christmas ideas, I want you to see the new fish we designed for needlepoint belts this week.  They are amazing!

If you love to fish, let us know your favorites and we can do a custom needlepoint belt design for you!  Available as DYI needlepoint kit or as a fully stitched needlepoint belt.

I’ve mentioned her before, but it is aways good to remind our readers.

We have a great painter in the Denver area that will do custom projects for us.

This week I met with her for two projects she painted of kids names spelled out in playful kid shapes.  (see the bottom photo)

While chatting, she also had two projects she had finished for women in her stitching group which I love!  The angel stocking really came out amazing.

Those of you who are waiting untill the last minute to pick out a canvas to stitch for Christmas this year should check out our two new needlepoint Christmas stocking designs!

The first design in this post hits close to home (Colorado). It is the Winter Ski Christmas Stocking Needlepoint Kit.  The needlepoint canvas features snow capped mountains, skiers, and more snow flakes in a fun modern design that opens a lot of fancy stitch possibilities.  The name will be personalized to order when your canvas is made.

I’m a sailor, so I really wanted to design something for our little boy.  We came up with the Anchors Aweigh Sailing Christmas Stocking Needlepoint Kit.  I’m sure you will be seeing a post about this in the future.  If you’re into a specific type of boat, let us know and we will integrate it into the design!

Last week we got a lot of lovely feedback, it really makes Karen and I smile to know our customers are loving their custom needlepoint kits and belts that we make at NeedlePaint.com.

“My project arrived and looks great. I appreciate to detailed map of colors.”  Lynn – Aug. 21, 2014

“I just wanted to let you know that my husband has been wearing his beautiful belt all the time and he always gets comments-everyone loves it. I also wanted to let you know how well it wears!! It still looks brand new.”  Kathryn – Aug. 19, 2014

“I just got the needlepoint canvas and I am so pleased! The picture details on the canvas are actually clearer than the image I sent you. Since the picture I chose has subtle color changes, I wasn’t at all sure the result was going to be easy to work. But you did a brilliant job with it and I am going to thoroughly enjoy doing the needlepoint. Thank you so much for the outstanding work and the great customer service.”  Janis – Aug. 18 2014

“The needlepoint arrived today & it’s great!” Joyce Aug. 18, 2014

“The canvas is perfect.  Thanks so much.  You are the nicest guy I meet online.  I hope Needlepaint is a big success.”  Barbara – Aug. 17, 2014

“The canvas looks beautiful! Thank you!” Alison – Aug. 12, 2014

“I received the needlepoint belt kit today, and I love it!”  Ellen – Aug. 11, 2014
