Sailing and Skiing Needlepoint Christmas Stockings

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!

Friday Favorites – NeedlePaint.com Reviews and New Custom Needlepoint Projects

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

Needlepoint Flags for Christmas Ornament Tradition

I was working on a project this week and just had to share the idea (with the customers excitement to pass it on, too!).

Every year, the family stitches new needlepoint ornaments and this year and hopefully going forwards she will be stitching needlepoint flags of places that her children visited.

The needlepoint flag ornament designs are 4 inches wide, and about 2.7 inches high.

University of Virginia Campus Needlepoint Belt

We had a customer looking for a one of a kind needlepoint belt featuring the Academical Village / Pavilions at the University of Virginia.

With confidence I told him I thought we could make something that will make his friends jealous.  I think we nailed it!

This design is now available as a personalized needlepoint belt.  We can adjust the monogram and graduation year to order.  Or, it is also available as a stitch it yourself needlepoint kit!

Below I took a photo of the whole belt.  The waviness and blurry spots are due to the “panorama effect” trying to move across the belt and shoot the picture in one shot using my phone.  Still a great picture of a great belt!

We specialize in custom college campus needlepoint belt designs, so if you have a school you’d like us to design a belt for, let us know!
