Be the first to see it! English Garden back from the framer!

Happy Thursday, everyone! We’ve almost made it to the weekend! I’ve been dying to share these photos of the ribbonwork canvas I’ll be teaching at Needlepoint.Com’s upcoming Raleigh Retreat with you all! Those of you who follow me on Instagram may have seen the sneak peek I posted last week when my framer texted me a picture to say they were finished. But you all get to be the first to see it up close here!

I’m just so pleased with how the whole project turned out. I love the way the white makes all the colors in the shadow box pop out and seem even more vibrant. It just looks so clean and bright!

Be the first

I’d love to have you all join me for the class. I’ll be teaching this piece in Raleigh, North Carolina on March 19th, 2017 from 9:30 am -3:00 pm. It’s sure to be a really wonderful day- I like a really relaxed classroom environment, so everyone is free to have fun. Plus if you’re intimidated or need extra help practicing a stitch, we will have tons of class “angels” floating around to offer extra assistance!

Be the first

The whole weekend is such an incredibly exciting event, but my favorite part of the weekend is the wine and cheese party held in the shop on Friday and Saturday night. It’s such a nice opportunity for those of us teaching to get to know our guests better, in a less formal setting! Our attendees get to shop our exclusive trunk shows and go behind the scenes into our needlepoint warehouse- an opportunity that doesn’t happen often!

To sign up for the class, call the shop today to hold your spot, or you can register online here. If you can’t join us for the class, call the shop at 919-828-5538 to preorder your kit today!

Indigo Home Shop and Lycette Designs

Hey everyone! Happy Monday! I hope your week is off to a great start! I was so excited last week when I saw that Lycette Designs had teamed up with Indigo Home Shop, that I had to share the news with you all myself! Lycette Designs now offers Dana’s work adapted into needlepoint canvases. I know this is going to be such a fabulous collaboration  between two very talented artists.

Indigo Home Shop

You may have heard of Indigo Home Shop for their chic Chinoiserie style pumpkins and dog bowls. Dana also designs these darling puppy dog trivets that read “Home… where someone always runs to greet you!” I think they’re just precious!

BUT wait until you see the design adapted to needlepoint… I don’t think it gets much cuter than this!

Indigo Home Shop

The third design in the series right now is this Chinoiserie style Pagoda. The blue and white makes for such a classic, timeless look! I can hardly wait to see these three canvases stitched and finished by talented needlepointers out there!

Indigo Home Shop

Between Tess and Thorn and Lycette Designs (both canvas designers) and Sweet Sundays (a blog that features both needlepoint and other sweet treats), I have been so excited and inspired to see so many young, fresh faces take the needlepoint industry by a storm recently!

If you would like to order any of these three designs call the shop at 919-828-5538.
We would be happy to kit them and ship them right to your home!

Sometimes it can be tough to have to wait 6-8 weeks for a canvas if a designer doesn’t have that particular one in stock and it has to be painted! With this section of our website, we hope to eliminate that problem!

Love this precious Scott Church Beaver with Candy Cane

Warm Winter Mitten: Online Class

Happy Monday, everyone! I hope your week is off to a great start! Today I wanted to share a quick post about this adorable Burnett & Bradley Warm Winter Mitten online class, now available at Needlepoint.Com.

Warm Winter Mitten

We’ve been working hard to put together a group of classes geared towards newer stitchers or stitchers who haven’t done a ton of decorative stitches before. After all, the more needlepointers the merrier! This class is one of my personal favorites: with only three different colors in the design, this canvas has such a classic look. It would make the perfect addition to your holiday decorations- and best of all, you can leave this design out all winter long!

Warm Winter Mitten

The online class comes with painted canvas (18 count!), threads, a printed stitch guide, needles, a Needlepoint.Com logo bag and access to our exclusive online videos. It really has everything you need to sit down and stitch right away. Plus, with so much instructional information it would certainly make a great gift for a dear friend.
You don’t want to miss out on this one… only a few kits remain!

The kit for this online class can be found here!
