It has been a great year at NeedlePaint and I have much to be greatful for.
Desiging needlepoint belts for a living is truly a great job. And, our most recent design is one of my new favorites!
The Americas Cup Winners Classic Yacht Needlepoint Belt features 7 boats that helped defend one of the longest winning sreaks in sporst. The yacht names are America, Mischief, Magic, Enterprise, Defender, Intrepid, and Rainbow.
This design is availabe as a fully stitched needepoint belt, or as a DIY needlepoint kit. And it can be customized! Add a monogram, yacht club burgee, and change the background color to navy if you don’t like the light blue!

And last is a custom whisky flask needlepoint project. The stitcher will put both sides together to ensure it is aligned properly. This can be easily be done by overlapping the canvases and stitching them together.

Being a sailor myself, I’m really enjoying two new needlepoint belt designs we put on NeedlePaint last week.
The preppy sailing regatta needlepoint belt features beautiful spinnakers going downwind. The fun colors will draw in the eye, but the tasteful and “fast moving” design will be a hit at the local yacht club. We can even adjust the lead boat to have your spinnaker!
Now, on to another type of sailing, we also created a tall ship needlepoint belt. Classic sailing vessel designs include schooners, cutters, gaff rigs, and even an official full rigged ship. This features a green stripped background over navy. Again, if you know somebody who sailed on a different type of boat not shown, just let us know and we will customize a new boat and put it into the design!
As with all of our designs, both are available as finished belts or needlepoint canvases that you stitch yourself.
Have a great week!
