Zombie Tonic: A New Online Class

When Vernon, the artist behind Kirk & Bradley, announced he was planning on designing a new poison bottle, we could hardly wait to see it. Even though it had been a few years since he had added to this collection of designs, they still remain some of Kirk & Bradley’s most popular of all time. With titles like Rat’s Tails, Cat Puke,  Frog’s Breath and Boiled Bugs, we were sure he would come up with something equally fun this time around. He certainly didn’t disappoint with Zombie Tonic!

When this new poison bottle was released at Dallas Market, we knew we were going to have to stitch this canvas.  So we went to work with some fun overdyed threads, some Straw Silk, and some oversized beads. We are now ready to announce that it is our newest online class!

Zombie

The online class kit includes canvas, stitch guide, thread pack, and access to our online class which never expires. The kit is $115, and can be purchased online here:

Something spooktacular is coming your way!

Hi there everyone! With Halloween right around the corner, it is officially pumpkin season. They seem to be everywhere you look… from Starbucks drinks to just about everything in the grocery store, it’s impossible to miss this time of year.

Spooktacular

Needlepoint.Com is no exception. I’ve been working on three new spooktacular halloween stitch guides. Two pumpkin canvases and a ghost designed by Burnett & Bradley.

Spooktacular
I always love to stitch in season and fall is just about my favorite time of year. These three little canvases stitched up so quickly. I like that they fall on more of the “cute” side of halloween designs rather than being spooky and menacing looking, like lots of decorations are. We currently have them all hanging from a wreath on our door in the Needlepoint.Com shop. Definitely festive and fun!

Spooktacular

The canvases purchase includes the stitch guide. They are now available individually on our website, and are currently in stock.

Meet Amy- the Artist behind A Poore Girl Paints!

I had been following Amy Poore’s canvas line “A Poore Girl Paints” on Instagram ever since she came on to the needlepoint scene earlier this year. I finally had the pleasure of meeting her in person at Dallas Market, and we immediately hit it off!  Today on the Stitch Style, I wanted to share a little more about her and her adorable designs with you all. I know you are going to love her canvases just as much as I do!

Poore

First of all, tell us about yourself Amy! Where is home for you?

I’m a born and bred southern girl who has lived her whole life in Alabama. I attended the University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa, which is where I now live with my husband, Raymond and our 3 year old daughter, Elizabeth.

Poore

What was your first experience with needlepoint?

My first experience with needlepoint was jumping in on a stocking for myself. Around 4 years ago I had quit working to stay home with our daughter so I had a little more time on my hands. After getting settled into that routine, I turned to my dear friend, Barbara, who had been needlepointing for years to teach me.

Poore

What lead you to start designing your own needlepoint canvases? And what is your process like?

I starting painting canvases because sometimes there were a few different things I wanted to stitch and they were just not out there. It turned into more than canvases for my personal enjoyment when I posted progress on my own canvas on Facebook. To my surprise, there were several people interested in my work. Which got me thinking – there are probably a lot of new stitcher’s on the scene who feel the same way, so here I am.

My progress is quite simple. I come up with a design, transfer it to canvas and get to painting. I have only painted on 18 count up until now but had someone special order a design on 13 count so I’m about to give that a whirl.

Poore
What inspires you?

Lots of things inspire my designs. My eyes are always open! I also have friends and customers send me ideas they would like to see – which kind of brings me back to why I started in the first place.

Poore

When you’re not painting canvases, how do you spend your time?

When I am not painting you will find me stitching. I always tell people – I am a stitcher first, painter second. I’m learning how to balance that better, it’s not always easy. Besides the stitching world, I’m an avid tennis player and I love to cook. I have a food blog and contribute recipes to a local monthly paper. All that being said – my family is the most important thing in my life so I most want to spend quality time with them and to be the best mom/wife I can be.

Amy’s designs are now available for purchase here on the Needlepoint.Com website.
