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.

Visit NeedlePaint.com to design your own custom needlepoint kits!  (or email us ideas and we’d be happy to design them for you)

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!

Friday Favorites – Dog Needlepoint Pillow Nantucket Wedding Pillow and NeedlePaint Reviews

Hope everybody had a great holiday!

Last week we were treated by some of our customers with pictures of finished projects that really stand out.

We have two needlepoint pillows, one is a dog needlepoint project and the other was a Nantucket Wedding Pillow.

I love the colors and modern touch on the dog and with the nantucket, well the red braided piping looks great.  Nice stitching Ginger and Hillary!!!
