Paddle Your Way To Our Handsome New NeedlePaint Projects!

Are you a paddle enthusiast? Whether it be paddling around a quiet lake, or perhaps you prefer letting someone else do the hard work while you dip your toes in the water? Here at NeedlePaint, we have designed a new collection of needlepoint canvases featuring some very handsome and colorful paddles. Our needlepoint pillow, flask, wallet and belt are all available as needlepoint canvases for you to stitch, or if you prefer we’ll do the stitching for you. Remember, when you’re finished stitching your needlepoint canvas, we are here to help you with our needlepoint finishing services.

“Exploration and Recreation” — Needlepointing and paddling are both great activities. Whether your exploring a new stitch or taking a new direction on the lake . . . . quietly stitching a new needlepoint canvas, and paddling through nature, are both relaxing activities you’ll be sure to enjoy.

Preppy Paddle Needlepoint Flask

Our Preppy Paddle needlepoint flask canvas, will be the perfect accessory to stitch for yourself or as a unique gift idea. After stitching your needlepoint flask canvas, we do offer a flask finishing service complete with leather and a metal flask. Don’t forget to slip this new flask into your picnic basket on the next rowing adventure!

“Tranquility at its finest” — Stitching a needlepoint canvas, creates a tranquil “zen like” feeling, similar to slowly paddling and gliding through the water of a crystal clear lake. Notice the intense colors of the thread, or the vivid colors in nature, not to mention the quiet and subtle sounds of both activities (or lack there of) can be oh, so soothing.

Preppy Paddle Needlepoint Wallet

You’ve spent the day fishing among the beauty of nature, but still haven’t caught any fish? Not to worry, there is a grocery store down at the base of the mountain. Simply pull out your new Preppy Paddle needlepoint wallet and pay for those little beauties, no one will be the wiser. After stitching your Preppy Paddle needlepoint wallet canvas, we do offer a wallet leather finishing service to turn your beautiful stitched canvas into a wallet.

Personalize a Nautical Flag Needlepoint Pillow For Your Family

I’ve driven by the same local shopping center for over twenty years. When they first moved in, I thought their nautical theme a bit strange as we are located in “landlocked” Denver. Not a location where serious boating happens, but a place where family time is spent skiing down the slopes of the Rocky Mountains. This shopping center’s sign proudly displayed their name “Marina Pointe” flanked with colorful graphic squares, of which I assumed had something to do with boating. I didn’t think much more about this sign, until I noticed all of the nautical belts that customers order here at NeedlePaint. As the placement of these flags varied, I soon realized they were spelling out a message, not just randomly placed; and then the idea for a personalized nautical flag needlepoint pillow began.

After further exploration (and some help from Seth’s sailing expertise), I discovered these colorful nautical signal flags began before short wave radio, as an easy and safe way to relay messages to other boats and people on shore. Each of these flags represents a letter of the alphabet or a phrase.

In today’s busy world, it’s important to connect with family members, whether it be spending quality “unplugged” time together at home or through outdoor activities like boating or sailing. When your not sailing, creating a comforting tranquil home environment, and surrounding yourself with the things that are meaningful is key. Incorporating personal items your grandmother made, your kids created in school, or that you have hand stitched; help save the memories your family has created together. This is truly what makes a living space “a home”.

We’ve created this nautical pillow to remind you of the times your family has spent on the water together. Personalized with your last name and the coordinating nautical flags that represent each letter. Available as a needlepoint canvas for you to stitch, or if you prefer we will do the stitching and create your pillow. Happy Sailing!
