A Very Needlepoint Christmas to All

Christmas and Hanukkah are almost here!  Our little workshop has shipped over a hundred belts this past week and almost as many needlepoint kits.  We hope they all arrive and bring smiles to families across the country.

We have a lot to be thankful for this year, and are looking forwards to 2017.  We’ll be offering some new services for our needlepointers and for our customers who are looking for fully stitched products.

Those of you thinking of taking up a new hobby, please check out what an art needlepoint really is.  You’re in for a treat, we have a Customer Spotlight at the bottom of this post.

Our first Big announcement for 2017 is that we’re now selling fully stitched custom needlepoint stocking!  We’ve sold some over the years, but finally have put a listing online in our Etsy shop.  Our designers are here to work with you, whether you’re trying to match an heirloom needlepoint stocking, or looking for an updated needlepoint design, needlepoint stockings truly are timeless.

What better to give than a gift of personal memories!  These custom needlepoint pillows are going to a fishing lodge, but I had to sneak some pictures under the tree.

And those of you who made it this far are in for a treat.  Lisa, in New York just finished her second project ever.  She stitched this amazing Clara Nutcracker Stocking!  It is the same design as above (we did customize the background a bit), but you can see her talent in selecting her own colors and especially choosing fun stitches and embellishments that add even more depth and texture to the stocking.  Nice work Lisa!

Needlepoint is Fun and amazing. I hope you share these images with your friends and help inspire them to learn to needlepoint in 2017!

The Needlepoint Stockings were Hung by the Chimney with Care

The Christmas season is long anticipated all year by adults and children alike for the celebratory feeling that is nearly magical. Friends and families around the world gather to celebrate and enjoy the festivities of the season. With so much going on at Christmas time, it can take a long time to find something new and special each year to commemorate the day. Our custom needlepoint Christmas stockings are perfect for any Christmas lover.

Hanging a stocking is a long standing tradition dating back to a legend from the days of Saint Nicholas. It was said that he left gold in the stockings of people in his town on Christmas Eve. While you’d have to be really good all year to get gold in your stocking from Santa, the decoration is still a favorite of families around the world.

Mary Ann from Illinois stitched a beautiful Shrek stocking for Julia.

Above, we can see our friend Mary Ann in Illinois created a beautiful and creative stocking showcasing Julia’s favorite movie characters, the cast of animated movie Shrek. This came out beautifully, and we’re sure Julia will enjoy her stocking for years to come!

Our Christmas photo stocking needlepoint kit is a hit for those looking to craft something unique for the holidays. It can be customized with any design or photo, such as your children’s favorite movie characters, your husband’s favorite sports team, or your favorite pet. These stockings will look great for years and will always be something you and your family look forward to hanging up.

One last photo, this is a belt we stitched that has just a solid green background.  This is actually one of the harder things to do, because any stitching issues show up more obviously.  I’m super happy with how it came out!

Nutcracker Christmas Stocking Needlepoint Kit

Looking to wow your family members this Christmas?

Check out our new Nutcracker Needlepoint Christmas Stocking.

The design features an elegant nutcracker with a simple stripe background.  What I love about the stripes, is that they have the potential to turn into so many different things depending on the stitch you use!  I can see using Pavillion Diamonds, Medieval Mosaic, Double Brick, etc…
