Friday Favorites – Custom Needlepoint Belts – Pillows – Artwork – Christmas Deadlines

Happy Friday!

We’re halfway thought the holiday season already, just two more week!  Orders placed by Tuesday Dec. 9th will ship by the 13th and still make it in time for Christmas.  (This is for needlepoint canvases only, and does not necessarily include personalized designs).  Orders placed by Dec 16th will need to use FedEx to guarantee delivery by the 24th.  We will email customers the details about your orders if is shipping that week.  If you are ordering a Life Treasures Belt design, please order ASAP, as it takes us 2 – 3 days extra to create your preview.

We’ve been having a great holiday season this year and really appreciate feedback from our customers.  Here is some we received recently.

“The belt came today. It is EXACTLY what I was hoping for. Thank you so much. I am thrilled with it. I will update you after the gift has been received.” Ellie – 2014-12-04

“it took me awhile to finally finish these belts, but my sons love the way they came out.  Thanks very much for designing them…” Karyl – 2014-11-30

“I am very proud of the finished article but wouldn’t have achieved it without the fine canvas!”  Beth – 2014-11-30  See her work below!

“I got it (a needlepoint belt) late yesterday.  LOVE IT.  I hope my son loves it as much.”  Meg – 2014-11-29

“Got it!  Thanks so much Seth for the super service!!!” Eric – 2014-11-24

“I love my canvas! Can’t wait to get started on it!”  Betsy – 2014-11-26

Now is time for a real treat!  Below is a project one of our customers stitched recently.  It was created off a piece of art called Lady with a Letter.  You can see Beth’s very positive feedback above.  Please let her know if you love it as much as I do!

Washington and Lee University Needlepoint Belt

We’ve added another college campus needlepoint belt to our shop!

The Washington and Lee University Campus Needlepoint Belt features the campus’s iconic buildings.  From left to right these are Leyburn Library, Presidents House and barn, Newcomb Hall, Colonnade, Tucker Hall, Huntley Hall, Chapel, and Elrod Commons.

Also note the scene is set in the Shenandoah Valley surrounded by the Allegheny and Blue Ridge mountains. The beautiful backdrop really is sets the scene for this wonderful university.

Custom College Campus Needlepoint Belts

Some belt designs just draw you in and and make you say WOW!

The Notre Dame Campus needlepoint belt and the University of Virginia Academical Village needlepoint belt both do that for me.

We’ve added both designs to the shop, so if you want a belt that will make other alumni jealous, these will for sure take your college friends’ breath away.

Keep in mind all of our belts are also available as needlepoint kits if you want to stitch them yourself!

Custom College Campus Needlepoint Belts and Other Custom Belt Options

It is not everyday that we find true talent, but about a week a go I was contacted by a very talented artist who is interested in creating custom needlepoint belt designs for us.

I’m amazed by their ability to capture details on a belt that normally would not be possible using only 22 stitches.  The custom college needlepoint belt design is just an example of what we can do.  The preview below is of the Notre Dame campus in South Bend, Indiana, but you go ahead and tell us the campus you’d like on your belt along with buildings, stadiums, and landmarks and we’ll create a new design for you!

Keep in mind our designs can be ordered either as a needlepoint belt or you can order the needlepoint canvas and stitch it yourself!

Another example we created is the custom landscape scene needlepoint belt canvas.  You may have seen a picture of this canvas in last week’s Friday Favorites blog post.  This is just an idea, but how cool would a city scape of New York, Chicago, or Paris be!

If you’re looking for a simpler design (and cheaper), our Life Treasures Custom Needlepoint Belts are most likely the best bet.  Simple but elegant, we take the favorite things from your life an put it into stitches.  Think teams, schools, sports, and hobbies, these make excellent gifts!
