West Point Needlepoint Belt

A few months back, we had a few requests to design the West Point Military Academy campus which sits on high ground overlooking the Hudson River in West Point, New York.

The West Point Campus Needlepoint Belt was really fun, it features an American flag, Mitchie Stadium, the Cadet Chapel, Washington Hall, George Washington Statue, Jefferson Hall Library, Battle Monument overlooking Trophy Point on the Hudson, and a Bald Eagle.

We even have worked on a customized version that featuers a new visitors center that is being built!

I also am including in this post some feedback we recieved about our belts recently:

“Yesterday was —’s birthday and he LOVED the belt.  In fact, he said it was
the best gift he has received…  The image of Beezo was particularly good.  I appreciate all your help making this happen.”  Laura 2015-07-23

“the belt looks great, very happy with it.”  Mike  2015-7-11

“The belt arrived and looks FANTASTIC, of course!  Thank you for creating such a memorable gift for my husband… and for your inexhaustible patience.   :)”  Mary 2015-07-10

Bowdoin College Campus Needlepoint Belt

We’ve finished designing another stunning custom college campus needlepoint belt!

Bowdoin College is know for the outstanding liberal arts education it provides and the beautiful campus in Brunswick, Maine. Friendships and relationships that are started here endure and grow.  The Bowdoin College campus needlepoint belt will hopefully bring back some of those memories.

The campus design features:  Hubbard Hall, Museum, VAC, Searles Science Building, Memorial Hall, Massachusetts Hall, the Chapel, Maine Hall, and Baxter House.

We’d be happy to add a monogram and / or the graduation year on either side of the buckle if you’d like.  This is available as a fully stitched needlepoint belt, or as a DIY needlepoint kit.  It would make a great gift for somebody who seems to have everything!

We’ve added another college campus to our design library.

The University of Alabama Tuscaloosa campus needlepoint belt features the presidents mansion, the quad, Shelby Hall, Bryant-Denny Stadium, Tailgate scene, Gorgas Library, Gorgas Hall, and Denny Chimes.

We will personalize your belt with a monogram and graduation year for free!

Friday Favorites – Custom College Needlepoint Designs, Monograms, and Mountains

We were very busy this week in our workshop.   There are some stunning images to share, so I hope you enjoy them!

First off, two of our custom needlepoint belt designs.  Two are our newly featured custom landscape panoramas.  The one on the right is the Notre Dame campus in South Bend, and the other is a coastal town in California!

Custom College Campus Needlepoint Belts

Some belt designs just draw you in and and make you say WOW!

The Notre Dame Campus needlepoint belt and the University of Virginia Academical Village needlepoint belt both do that for me.

We’ve added both designs to the shop, so if you want a belt that will make other alumni jealous, these will for sure take your college friends’ breath away.

Keep in mind all of our belts are also available as needlepoint kits if you want to stitch them yourself!

Custom College Campus Needlepoint Belts and Other Custom Belt Options

It is not everyday that we find true talent, but about a week a go I was contacted by a very talented artist who is interested in creating custom needlepoint belt designs for us.

I’m amazed by their ability to capture details on a belt that normally would not be possible using only 22 stitches.  The custom college needlepoint belt design is just an example of what we can do.  The preview below is of the Notre Dame campus in South Bend, Indiana, but you go ahead and tell us the campus you’d like on your belt along with buildings, stadiums, and landmarks and we’ll create a new design for you!

Keep in mind our designs can be ordered either as a needlepoint belt or you can order the needlepoint canvas and stitch it yourself!

Another example we created is the custom landscape scene needlepoint belt canvas.  You may have seen a picture of this canvas in last week’s Friday Favorites blog post.  This is just an idea, but how cool would a city scape of New York, Chicago, or Paris be!
