Burnett & Bradley Banana Palm Frame

Whenever I go away to a trade show, I like to make sure that I pack a needlepoint project that I can work on when things are quiet in the booth. Two weeks ago I picked up this Burnett & Bradley Banana palm frame with the intention of doing just that while we were away in Dallas at the summer trade show.

I find it pretty much impossible to do too much that requires a ton of thought while traveling. Airplanes don’t have enough space to change threads all the time. I also like to have something that I can pick up and put down without having to worry about losing my place or remembering exactly what I was doing. There is something so relaxing about just doing Basketweave on a canvas.  While belts are great for this too, I decided that I picture frame would be a fun alternative this time!

This picture frame comes in two different color ways: Cream and Pink. And, Burnett and Bradley just released two new picture frames at this past market. A Greek Key pattern in Blue and Green. I really want to stitch the Blue Greek Key Picture frame with my monogram in the middle and finish it as a pillow! These designs are so fun, I’m not sure I can stitch just one.

I’m using Anchor Floss #205, 217, 218 and 926 to stitch my frame in. This is mostly because I liked color #926 for the buttercream background.

Have you seen the Mews Row on the cover of Needlepoint Now?

Happy Friday, everyone! I have some very exciting news to share with you all! Remember the Mews Row canvas that I taught at TNNA last January and at Needlepoint.Com’s retreat last March? Well, I’m thrilled to share with you all that it’s featured on the front cover of the September/October issue of Needlepoint Now!

It is always such a joy to collaborate with Needlepoint Now. The article shares my stitch guide for this canvas and a bit about my experience teaching at TNNA for Kirk and Bradley for the first time. So fun to see my work in print! Kind of a pinch me moment!

This is my second front cover with them. You may remember when Kirk and Bradley’s Sights and Scenes of London was featured on the March/April 2016 cover too! (I believe we still have one or two kits left in stock of that too.)

If you are interested in stitching this canvas, we have full kits, canvases and thread packs in stock and available now at Needlepoint.Com. Call the shop at 919-828-5568 to order yours today!

New Travel Rounds from Dallas!

We’re back in the office after a whirlwind trip to Destination Dallas! Melissa and I picked up so many fun new arrivals. I can’t wait to unpack all of the canvases and see everything again in person.

Kirk and Bradley released two new travel rounds which are available now on Needlepoint.Com with stitch guides. The two new locations are North Carolina and Alaska. Aren’t they fun!? I think the colors are so gorgeous in both of them.

These two new additions are a part of a larger series. We have all of the canvases in stock here, available immediately with stitch guides. Some of my favorite destinations are pictured below.
