Labor day is here, and while it is sad to see summer coming to a close, we’re feeling very blessed and happy to help design more great new needlepoint projects.
Here is some feedback from our customers last week:

If you’ve been following our blog for a while, you know how much we love our pets!
NeedlePaint probably has the best looking custom needlepoint kits for working needlepoint from photo.
Have a look at our workshop table last Friday (see below) these are some fun projects!
Our kits come with either Waverly wool or DMC floss, hand made and matched to your pet. Or if you prefer matching your own colors or working in a different fiber, our needlepoint canvases still come with a counted stitch guide and color chart matched to one of the two fiber options. I suggest using the DMC color palate if you are buying your own fiber, as there are many free color conversion charts available online.
If you would like to see needlepoint dog breeds, we have some favorites on the website. Or, if you prefer to stitch your own pet, you can needlepoint a photo using our online designer. You can customize the design size, mesh count, number of colors and fiber type with the click of a button! There is no fee to try out needlepoint designer so why not give it a try!
***If you are looking to stitch a graphic illustration, poem, or name, please contact us, our website is optimized for photos, but we can manually adjust your design so it comes out looking sharp.
