Creative NeedlePaint Customer Embellishes “Queen of Hearts”

I love opening a new email, to find a fabulous new creation, stitched by one of our NeedlePaint customers!  Recently Brenda T. in Georgia, sent a request for NeedlePaint to design another playing card canvas similar to the Queen of Hearts needlepoint pillow canvas she has just finished stitching.

Queen of Hearts Needlepoint canvas

Brenda’s finished needlepoint canvas has gone way beyond the basic. She uses a variety of stitches and is embellishing with beads!

Brenda says, “she will study the stitch book for days and try out one or two stitches to see if they work well.” She has taken workshops to learn how to embellishing using beads as well as victorian silk ribbon.

I think Brenda’s life time love of textiles and textures really shines through in her needlepoint work! Her creative background began after receiving her first sewing machine, a hand crank Singer, on her 6th Christmas. She went on to study at Virginia Tech, with a degree in Clothing and Textiles, and has sewed most all of her clothes. Although she never used her degree while working full-time for IBM, after retiring she did help friends with some interior design projects. She’s dabbled in knitting, watercolors, silk painting and has made sixteen or more needlepoint stockings for all of her grandchildren, grand nieces and nephews.

Now Brenda joins workshops at her local senior center. She enjoys the other women who sign up each time, with a solid core group of six or so. They help each other, learning to embellish with beads and ribbons, and have a variety of talents and abilities. She feels like this workshop has taken her needlepointing to a new level, and mentions that she might take up designing a pattern or two. 

Queen of Spades Needlepoint PillowQueen of Heart Needlepoint Pillow

We’ve just finished Brenda’s request for a new Queen of Spades canvas, and can’t wait to see what she does with this queen. Wouldn’t it be fun to put these two pillows at opposite ends of your sofa, perhaps with a King in between! Which card would you pick to stitch?

Please let us know if we can custom design something for you, or if you need help translating your design onto a custom needlepoint canvas that you can stitch!

We love to see what you have been stitching, please feel free to send us your creation photos at info@needlepaint.com.

Happy Stitching!

Funny Kids Word Sayings Custom Needlepoint Pillows

We had a fun custom needlepoint project from our Etsy page to work on.

The customer loves the welcome needlepoint pillow, but was wondering if we could put in some of the funny words their daughter says into the design instead of “welcome”.

We went back and forth and played with the words, and look how great the needlepoint pillows came out!  We had them finished for her using Waverly wool and velvet backing with piping (different color velvet for each pillow).

Totally worth the time that went into this project, these will be the talk of the house for a long time.
