About this Design

The Akita was introduced to America by Helen Keller, after she returned from a trip to Japan with a puppy. She said her dog was "an angel in fur, gentle, companionable and trusty". These dogs definitely have a loyalty to their owner, and will follow you from room to room. A great needlepoint pillow to adorn your living space. (adapted from a photo by Sevenfatdogs)

About Needlepoint pillows

The best needlepoint pillows are the ones we hand stitch from 100% Waverly Wool or DMC cotton. You can choose from over 15 colors of velvet backing, and can opt to add piping around the edge of your needlepoint pillow. If you like, we can customize the needlepoint pillow with a name or change a design to use the colors that you desire.

Every 12 x 12 inch and larger needlepoint pillow comes complete with a zipper in the back to remove the pillow form that it comes with. Our smaller needlepoint pillows are stuffed to size and sealed without the option to remove the stuffing.

Our needlepoint pillows are made by hand, stitch by stitch, so they take 3-4 months to finish.
