We had a request for a wedding needlepoint project recently.
The customer loves the waltz ring bearer pillow design, but wanted something for the wall.
What we ended up with was an 8 x 10 inch custom needlepoint canvas that looks amazing!
The soft yellow background goes with their wedding colors, and the background shows more of the damask pattern.
If you have an idea for a custom needlepoint canvas, contact us, we’d be happy to help create something special for you!

A few weeks back, we had a request to design a needlepoint canvas of Manhattan.
The customer loved the realistic feel of our needlepoint designs, but wanted to feature the twin towers and have a sunrise in the background.
It took some time, but it was worth it! The design size is 20″ x 13.8″ inches on a 24 x 18 inch, 14 mesh needlepoint canvas.
If you have a custom needlepoint project you would like to work on, contact us, we’d be happy to help.

In case you have not been on our website lately, or not noticed the small option in the needlepoint designer, you may be glad to hear we now offer both 10 and 12 mesh needlepoint canvases.
10 mesh canvases have larger holes, and appeal to stitchers who may appreciate being able to see the design more easily. As we age, you could understand the appeal in this.
To order a 10 mesh canvas, click on the 10 to see a digital preview of your design.

Along with the larger mesh sizes, we offer waverly needlepoint wool to go with our custom needlepoint kits. This is a three ply wool, with vibrant colors and a great feel.
Whether you want to needlepoint a photo, or shop our personalized needlepoint designs, you now have the options to stitch a mesh count that works for you. If you see a design you like in our shop that you would like to purchase, contact us.
Below is a Molokai Sunrise Needlepoint Canvas designed by Cole Mosher on 10 mesh canvas.

Always the classic concept, we’ve finally added the nautical flag needlepoint belt to our personalized needlepoint shop.
International maritime signal flags were used around the world for hundreds of years. Flags would be hoisted to communicate between ship captains.
Each of the flags on the belt stand for a letter, and the needlepoint belt below spells out Jacob Payson Chamberlain.
Order your own custom needlepoint canvas, and we will adjust the flags to your request and fit it to your exact waist size. If you’d like to change the background color or modify the design in any way, feel free to contact us directly, we’d be happy to help design the belt of your dreams!

If you have been on our website today, you will notice three changes.
#1. We now offer Waverly needlepoint wool for our custom needlepoint kits. This is a 3 ply wool that is similar to Paternayan. The main difference with Waverly, is that all three plys are the same thickness. It is made by the Brown Sheep Company right next door in Nebraska. The wool is actually raised in our home state of Colorado!

#2. 10 and 12 mesh canvas are available on our online needlepoint designer. (see below)
#3. The maximum needlepoint canvas size is no longer 13 x 19 inches, we’ve increased the maximum size to 40 inches wide!
This is brand new and we are still testing it, so if you encounter any problems, please email us. Your help is greatly appreciated!
We are making custom needlepoint pillows!
These two pillows were just finished and look great!
You can look at our website for some of our modern needlepoint designs, personalized needlepoint designs, or if you’d prefer us to make a custom pillow with your own design, we’d love to do that.
Both pillows in this photo are stitched using wool, and are on 12 mesh canvas. Prices for ring bearer pillows start at $100 and for 14 x 14 inch pillows start around $160. We go by the number of stitches and size.
For photo pillows, the maximum number of colors is 14, but we’re happy to help design the pillow for you, just email us the photo along with your ideas, and we’ll put together a preview for you. (Photo pillows are more expensive than the normal, by typically $40-$60 depending on the design)
Of course, if you’d prefer to stitch your own needlepoint canvas, we’d be happy to help with the needlepoint design, and also offer a pillow finishing service.

I think all of our readers will appreciate how well this custom needlepoint canvas turned out this week!
Our customer requested a greek key border to go around their dog, and to remove the background so they could needlepoint the dog in the photo.
If you have a photo to needlepoint, we can help! Just email us the photo and your ideas, and we’ll make a digital preview for you.

We had a fun project last week that the customer has agreed to share with everybody!
This needlepoint belt is a collection of places, events and symbols. It is being made as a graduation gift.
I’m calling it a Life Treasures belt. We started with about 20 ideas, and then they decided to get the grad’s opinion to make sure they like all the elements.
A few rounds back and forth and we had an amazing personalized needlepoint belt canvas! I’m sure this will be worn with pride…
We’re always looking for more cute dogs to needlepoint!

We’ve been quite busy designing personalized needlepoint belts the last few weeks!
I had to share this one, as it really came out well.
The flag and eagle with anchor only repeat once, but I would have had to cut them in half to make the preview accurate, so I left them on both sides so you could see them!
Some of the elements came from our Airplane Needlepoint Belt but new additions were the Eagle with Anchor, the Navy Logo, the Wings, Navy Chapel, and Navy Insignia.
If you have any custom needlepoint ideas, let us know!
