Imagine a sleekly elegant pendant hanging from a sterling choker or leather cord. Sound good?
Now imagine that pendant being made from needlepoint. Sound too good to be true?
It was until late last year, when FAS-Stitch came on the scene. They sell stunning needlepoint pendants, frame, earring, and cufflinks, put into a brushed aluminum frames.
You can buy these pieces from FAS-Stitch in one of three ways:
1. Finishing only: You buy your own canvas and buy the finishing from them. Once your piece is stitched, put it into the postage-paid envelope and send it to them. Two weeks later your finished piece is returned in a lovely gift box.
2. Finishing and kit: This has the finishing with a computer-printed canvas and threads for stitching it. These kits also include a second outlined canvas. The finishing for the first piece is included in the initial cost. Finishing is done the same way. The bonus kit includes an order form for the finishing (and the cost).
3. Finishing and outline kit: These kits do not have the colored canvas, instead they have an outlined canvas which you can stitch is threads or colors of your choice. They also include 18 cards of Rainbow Gallery Mandarin Floss. Same deal with finishing.
I am so pleased with the results. The pendant is dramatic and beautiful People don’t realize that it’s needlepoint. My DD, who is artistic, but not a needlepoint sort of person, loves hers. It arrived on Valentine’s Day too, which made it a perfect gift.
