Canvases Fibers Classes Events The Store

Hand-painted canvases in an array of subjects are always in stock. We feature scrumptious threads: basic wools, rayons, silk-wool blends, overdyed fibers, rustic wools, metallics, and cotton.

Classes are available for students of all levels. Beginners learn the basics of needlepoint in a one-hour private lesson. Workshops cover decorative stitches and fibers, and how they apply to your own canvas. No time? Send us your canvas, and we will design a stitch guide.  

Custom canvas design upon request.
Needlepoint fabrication available.
Stitching service.
