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!

It’s Beach Week at Needlepoint.Com!

It’s beach week at Needlepoint.Com!

I just love the ocean. James and I were lucky enough to get away to Myrtle Beach earlier this summer. It was so relaxing. I know fall is just around the corner but I don’t want this summer weather to end!

We have some wonderful beach themed canvases still in stock. And you won’t want to miss out on this sale. All in stock canvases are 25% off.

Below I’ve rounded up some of my favorites!

1. I love this shell bowl by Melissa Shirley


2. This boating scene is so stunning!


3. These pippin sand buckets are just adorable!


4. I’m dying to stitch this banana palm frame


5. You could do so many fun stitches on this Mermaid Crossing canvas


6. Love these mini versions of Charlie Harper designs!

7. This blue background is gorgeous

8. This Kate Dickerson piece would make such a fun throw pillow

Chelsea Eccentric Garden Kit!

When our sister company Elizabeth Bradley Designs was invited to exhibit at the Chelsea Flower Show, we knew that Kirk & Bradley would have to paint something special to commemorate the event! This special canvas was designed as a result, and is modeled after the Chelsea Eccentric Garden by Harrods from the 2016 show, and was released at January Market earlier this year. Isn’t it pretty? I love the way Vernon gave it a sampler feel, while still keeping the main design of the garden in the center. Just perfect for any gardening enthusiasts out there! Needlepoint.Com has it available as the Chelsea Eccentric Garden Kit and it’s on sale right now.

I was so excited to get this canvas to work on, and was even more excited when it came back in the mail from the finisher! I think the trim definitely pulls the whole piece together.

Being on 13 count, the whole piece really moved right along. The majority of the piece is worked in silk, and there is a little bit of ribbonwork on there as well! I think it really helps to bring the flowers to life.

The kit is on sale right now for 20% off, (along with lots of other fun goodies!) and can be found on the Needlepoint.Com website here. Call the shop at 919-828-5538 for more information!

Teaching at TNNA Winter Trade Show- San Jose

Happy Wednesday, everyone! I wanted to let you all know that I will be teaching at the TNNA Winter Trade Show in San Jose, California this coming January. I would love to have any wholesalers or shop owners join me for this fun event!


I’ll be teaching the Kirk & Bradley Mews House Canvas Friday January 20 from 9am-4pm at the San Jose Convention Center. The Mews House Canvas is one of the newest additions to K&B’s line of Thoroughly English Needlepoint. It is stitched with a variety of threads from Planet Earth Fibers, Rainbow Gallery, Threadworx Overdyed Floss, Straw Silk, and beads from Sundance Designs. Ribbon techniques will use River Silks Ribbons. This is certainly a class your customers will love for you to share with them!



For those of you who are not eligible to attend the TNNA Trade Show, I will be repeating the class at Needlepoint.Com in Raleigh, NC on Saturday March 18th, 2017. You can read more about that event here!

Upcoming Class: “To The Shore”

Good morning everyone! Happy Tuesday! I’m so excited  to share with you all that I will be teaching one of my all time favorite pieces at Needlepoint.Com this summer. The upcoming class is Peter Ashe’s “To The Shore.” Class will be held on June 15th from 10-3 pm. Lunch will be provided, since it’s an all day affair.

Upcoming Class: To The Shore This is a great opportunity to get comfortable working with open stitches, different French Knot techniques, overdyed threads, and much, much more! There really is a ton of different techniques and to learn.

I always joke that this is the house I want to move into when I “grow up.”
It’s just so gorgeous!

The total cost for canvas, thread pack, stitch guide and instruction is $475.
Call the shop at 919-828-5538 for more information.
Space is limited, and spots are filling up quickly. I hope to see you all there!

New Stitch Guide- Peter Ashe “To The Shore”

Happy Thursday and thanks for stopping by! I have a treat for you all today!

I’m excited to say that the Stitch Guide for Peter Ashe’s To The Shore is complete, and available for order!

New Stitch Guide- To The Shore
(Some of you may remember that it came back from the framer the other day)

For those of you who are familiar with Peter Ashe’s work, you will know that he tends to paint a lot of landmarks in the Southwest, and San Francisco. This piece is so totally unique and unlike any of his other designs. Think New England Summer- on the coast! I think it’s stunning. I always joke that I want to move into this house one day! But I mean, really… Who wouldn’t!?

The stitch guide is available by emailing and the canvas can be ordered from any L.N.S who carries canvases from Julia’s Needleworks.

To The Shore was an absolute blast to stitch. I’m certain you all will love it too!
