Since the holiday rush ended in January, we’ve had some extra time to work on fun needlepoint kits.
We know that stitchers always need new projects to work on, and are happy to help. Two of the needlepoint kits I’ve worked on started with phone calls.
The first was a picture of boy in a pumpkin patch. The details and colors were amazing, and the customer had some special requests. First, they prefer to use interlock canvas. Second, they really prefer perle cotton over embroidery floss. The interlock canvas was easy, as we have some in stock, but for the perle cotton, it was a bit trickier since the customer did not have close access to any needlepoint shops.
Being in Denver, we do have a great needlepoint shop, Diversions. For a small fee, we can pick out alternate fibers that they keep in stock.
Anyway, the customer loved the kit! Here is their feedback:
“The canvas came today. I thought it gorgeous, but then what do I know. My aunt, who is doing the work and who knows what she’s doing, was overwhelmed by it. “Very professional… Almost like a kit, it’ll be too easy” were some of her comments. I believe she is looking around for three more pictures to take advantage of your buy 3 (get a 4th free) deal.” Peter Shugart – El Paso, TX
Another fun project came from Australia last month. Although we don’t list it on our website, we do ship there. Their idea was to needlepoint a beach scene from an old movie.
“I received the canvas of today. It is just beautiful. The colours are gorgeous and thank you so much for the colour guide. I will find this very useful. I’ve been waiting so long to have this done professionally. I had one done here in Australia and the colours were very faint so it was difficult to distinguish between colours. Lucky it was only a small one. I may wish to have others done and will keep in mind your offer “Buy Three Canvas and get a Fourth free”. I will also look up the blog site. I will be in touch again.” Teresa Portelli – St. Ives Chase, Australia
This week, we also received a lot of positive feedback, and we love to hear it! Our goal is to make sure every project is great, and our customers love them. If you order from us, please send us feedback, we are always looking for ideas and suggestions.
Ok, here is the last customer post I’ll put in this blog, I got yesterday…
“The canvas looks great! I’m so excited…as is my daughter! Her teacher is going to love it. As a stitcher, I love the stitch guide…so wonderful to have on those close calls (do I stitch here or not?). Thank you for including it. And, the canvas is quite crisp. Thank you for taking the time and effort to make it so clear. My daughter is a new stitcher, and it will make quite a difference in her experience!” Marlena – Mass.
