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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

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.
Hey everyone! I know those of you who follow along on with my Instagram page have seen the progress that I’ve made on this Kirk and Bradley English Ribbonwork Landscape, but I haven’t had a chance to write a blog yet. Here it is:
This is the last piece I had to stitch that I will be teaching at the retreat. It’s going to be a packed weekend for me with the Nativity Class on Friday and our Travel Round Class on Sunday! I’m working as quickly as I possibly can to get it finished up!
I’ve just had the best time stitching this landscape. I love the way Vernon designed it to be a bit like a sampler. You have really clearcut areas for each stitch you choose.He intentionally left the background somewhat blurry so that the flowers pop out in the front. just waiting on an order of River Silks Ribbons (my favorite!) and then I’ll be able to get it finished up! You know I love any opportunity I can get to work in ribbon!
Still haven’t made a decision on how I want to have it finished. Maybe a pillow!? But I’d also love to have it out year round framed on the wall. What do you all think?
Call the shop at 919-828-5538 to sign up for the class.

Hey everyone! Happy Sunday! Today I wanted to write a quick post to share our newest online class with you all. It’s all about Openwork Backgrounds!
I’ve noticed from working in the shop that picking out background stitches seems to really stump people. It’s understandable though: too busy of a pattern and it overwhelms your whole piece. Not enough of a pattern and sometimes it doesn’t even look like you stitched it.
This class aims to help teach you how and why to use different background stitches, and make it easier for you to pick your own background stitches as well!
Your class includes blank canvas, stretcher bars, a variety of different threads, a printed stitch guide and forever access to your online classes. Yes! Your classes never expire and will now remain in your Needlepoint.Com account as a resource to use again and again!
You can purchase the class online here! It’s one of my favorite I’ve ever written- I know you all will love it!
