Last Weeks Favorites – Handpainted Needlepoint Chinese Emperor and the Workshop Table

Recently we had a project that needed the talent of an artist to interpret.  Our painter sure did a wonderful job!

The two Chinese figures are based of antique images that are going to go in the living room of the stitchers home.

The other image is of some other printed custom needlepoint canvases we made last week.  Such fun, can wait to see them stitched!

If you’ve been following the blog, you’ll notice we post a lot of new designs.

But, when I see the great custom needlepoint canvases we make, I often want to share those pictures, too.You should see my phone!

Sorry the pictures are not the best quality, but the canvases look great and will look even better when they are finished!

Hand Painted Custom Needlepoint Canvases

Occasionally we get requests to make hand painted custom needlepoint canvases.

Normally we make stitch counted canvases that are printed, and for a number of reasons, think they are often better (see the image of this needlepointed photo done from a stitch counted canvas ) but, our painter just finished two projects this week, and they are wonderful!

One woman thought the Orangutan was gonna walk right off the canvas!

Vintage Needlepoint Design Gets a Facelift!

I’ve been scouring used bookstores looking for needlepoint books.  It’s so much fun and among them I’ve  found found some great needlpoint designs.  What better than to give them new life in our needlepoint kits.  These old books can be so inspiring and I love making something new from something old.  Our Ambert Pillow kit is the first  example of design inspired from these vintage books.

All of our pillow kits can be personalized in your own color choice to fit in whatever cozy setting you are plan to create with them. The image below includes two different color options but we are happy to customize this kit to your color needs!

Do you have an idea for a needlepoint pillow kit or just want to share with us a awesome pillow, belt, or stocking?  Post to our facebook account!   We would love to hear your feed back and make other stitching friends!  Needle Paint is  constantly adding new designs so check out our website whenever you can! Happy stitching…

Vintage Needlepoint books, great inspiration!

This Ambert pillow design looks great in 2 different colorways.


Quilt Designs Look Great in Needle Point Too!

Our latest needlepoint kit is a deconstructed quilt.  The geometry of quilt designs can be very inspiring for art work and shape patterns.  I decided to try it on a pillow and it turned out quite nice!  Turn your favorite quilt into a custom needlepoint canvas and make a pillow to match your bedroom.  Or just use our pre-made design and maybe even make a quilt to complement.  A colorful pillow can add some eclectic flare to your room and give it a warm inviting feel.

This beautiful pillow is part of our bargello series, but may be the start of a quilt inspired series.  Give us your feedback!  Time to start stitching!!

Custom Flower Needlepoint Pillows

One of our customers, Hala Alfi, just finished two of her custom needlepoint canvases into beautiful pillows.

These designs were made using needlepoint kits from  where you can upload your own photo to design needlepoint canvases online.

I love the framed box edges on the pillows, they give an elegant look, while adding extra size to the pillow.

Many thanks Hala!  Keep up the beautiful work!
