Family Crests NeedlePaint Style!

Today, it’s quite popular for individuals to research their family history. Only to discover that their “last name” was once represented with a family crest, used to identify their family. We’ve designed several NeedlePaint canvases that you can stitch, to celebrate your family name. 

Your crest will be modified to our design, featuring the knights helmet, shield and scroll with your family name. The colors and design will match your crest, and the ornament on the helmet will be changed to match, too. Not sure what your family crest looks like? We would be happy to help do the research for you.

Family Crest Needlepoint Belt 2

Stitch a special belt canvas with your family crest! Although a belt canvas isn’t quite as tall as what an entire crest design might require, we can use the center shield or even individual elements from the original crest for your design. 

 

Family Crest needlepoint wallet

Create a one of a kind family crest wallet, by stitching your family crest on the front, and your family name on the back.

 

Don’t have a traditional family crest associated with your last name. Why not let us invent one for you? Our designers can create a crest from scratch, specific to your families interests, hobbies, sports, pets, philosophy or religion.

Ask us about our finishing services for pillow, flask, ornament, belt and wallet canvases. We also can stitch and finish any of our family crest needlepoint products for you, just let us know. Please send us a note at info@needlepaint.com, we would be happy to help you with your family crest project.

Happy Stitching!

 

 

 

 

 

Family Heirloom Custom Needlepoint Projects

It is spring time again! Over the winter we’ve collected some wonderful photos that our customers that emailed to us after finishing their projects.  We’ve also collected a lot of reviews from customers and continue to maintain a 5 star rating online!

The fun stuff!  This purple princess crown serving tray was stitched by a wonderful customer in TX.  She goes by Weezie, and is one of those people that when you talk to them, you can feel the warmth coming from their hart.

Princess Crown Custom Needlepoint Serving Tray

She used Kreinik gold #002HL for the crown, and boy does it sparkle!  The purple jewels are needlepointed in Kreinik purple.  The border is Mosaic and Gobelin.  You can see the serving tray in the upper right corner of this image.

Next is another fun custom needlepoint project by Weezie, she must have some lucky recipients!  She emailed us a crest of Argentina and we turned it into a custom needlepoint canvas, she took care of the rest!

Another family heirloom needlepoint to share with you all is from Mary Ann, in PA.  She uploaded her design on NeedlePaint and emailed us the family crest.  We helped make sure the canvas had the needed details, including increasing the size of the family name on the bottom, and voila!  A piece that will be passed on to the next generation of the Price family.
