“I ordered two NeedlePaint belts for my sons this Christmas.  They are in a word:  AWESOME!”.  Quality construction, and incredible attention to detail.

Friday Favorites – Art Needlepoint and Custom Needlepoint Canves from Photos and more Belts

When the weather is cold outside and we’re stuck inside, what a great time to get some needlepoint done!

This week we’ve got a lot of custom portriats, which are needlepoint canvases from photos.

If you don’t follow our blog or know about NeedlePaint.com and our specialized process for making a needlepoint canvas from a photo, below is why we think our canvases are superior. (For those of you who have ordered from us in the past, you can skip to the pictures below!)

The key to what we do is in the colors.  Our website takes your picture and matches the colors to acutal yarn colors.  When it does this, it account for each and every stitch, so you’ll not only get a canvas with the design on it, but you’ll also get a color chart that tells you all the colors in your kit and where to use it.

We recently purchased a canvas from another company that sells art needlepoint kits and were suprised that their canvas had none of this.  There was just a canvas without any color information.  The quality of the artwork was great, so no companints as long as the stitcher feels comfortable making those types of stitching decisions.

At NeedlePaint.com we’ve found that most of our customers prefer to have the colors matched for them and to have a canvas that is broken up by color with each stitch account for.  We call this a “Stitch Counted Design”.  If you look below, you’ll see how the colors are broken and grouped togather.  Also, if you order the fiber from us, we hand match the colors to the orginal photo, which is a time consuming process, but makes for amazing, realistic, and fun needlepoint!

Please click the following link if you’d like to learn more about our stitch counted canvases.

Onto the fun stuff, below are images of some of our favorite projects this week!

Friday Favorites – Merry Christmas and Fun Needlepoint Treats!

I’m so fortunate do have a great team to work with.  I was aways last week with my family, but Karen kept everything going and ensured that all of our Christmas and Hanukkah orders made it out in time.  Thanks Karen!!!

The first project was a dozen custom designs that will be stitched into two rugs.  They are mountain themed and look like a lot of fun.  We kept the number of colors down and used 14 mesh and wool so there will be a lot of detail  This is a work in progress which we hope to share photos of when it is done!

Also, the customer loves it!  Here is their feedback after giving the gift: “Just wanted to let you know that (…)’s mother loved your work and she was so happy!  Thank you so much!  You did an amazing job!”  Christine 2014-12-17

Friday Favorites – Fun Needlepoint Projects for Christmas

Needlepoint is fun, and this is a great time of year to share it!

This week was one of the most challenging, and yet rewarding weeks we’ve ever had and NeedlePaint.  So many great projects, but not enough time.  We will be shipping, but not until Monday as we still have some packing to do over the weekend!

People looking for last minute Christmas and Hanukkah gifts have until Tuesday night to place your order.  There will be a FedEx surcharge of around $10 for guaranteed arrival.  Please email us to confirm shipping information and also note we can’t guarantee custom belt canvas designs will be ready, as they take us a few extra days.

Onto the fun projects!  (And if you want to read more reviews from our customers, please see the bottom of this blog post).
