Every time I talk with stitchers, I hear frustration. They love the canvases, they buy them, and want to stitch them. Maybe they even buy the threads.
Sometimes they get “stitch guides” from shops or designers which are not appropriate for the canvas, incomplete, illegible, or inappropriate. You’d be frustrated too.
This doesn’t do any of us any good. The stitcher feels as if her money has been wasted. The shopowner doesn’t want to stock the guide or take the time to develop a good guide if it doesn’t sell.
Quite simply, I want to change all that. I love hand painted needlepoint canvases and I love the dialog that comes from the designer putting something on canvas and the stitcher bringing it to life and adding her own vision.
I want to help make that possible for you and make it affordable enough and useful enough that you will love the result, be happy with the investment and learn something you can use in other projects.
I meet you where you are and take into account your skill level, likes and dislikes, and your ideas about the canvas. I know hand painted needlepoint canvas and threads can be a significant investment, so I will work with you to use them.
In my guides you get:
- complete materials lists
- stitch diagrams
- explanations of techniques
- tips & ideas you can use elsewhere
Best of all the guides are affordable, most canvases have guides that run about $65, slightly more if printed and sent.
You can get a no cost, no obligation quote for a guide by visiting my new custom stitch guidesform.
Let’s make a beautiful canvas together!
