I love Designing Women’s Canvases and have stitched many over the years. My favorites are their crosses which come in such a wide selection of styles.
Recently Canvas Connection took over their line of canvases. Happily the have an extensive website and have a whole section of it devoted to the Designing Women canvases. Go to their home page and click on “Designing Women” to see 17 pages of designs. Each collection of canvases is grouped together, with a thumbnail (not clickable) and the design number. Each collection also has the size and mesh listed. On collections spanning multiple pages, this information is on each page.
While the pictures aren’t large, they are clear. On a few of the pages, you’ll find pictures of finished items.
Navigation through the collection is only through the page number links at the top of every page. There is no index of which designs are on which page, nor is there a search function.
To help you out, I’ve put together a little list of which pages have which kind of designs.
- Angels – 1
- Crosses – 2,3
- Christian Symbols – 4, 5
- Jewish Symbols – 6
- Movie Star Clothes, Uppity Shoes, & Ladies at Tea – 7
- Christmas Stockings – 8 – 12
- Royals, including Uppity Women – 13 (tea cosies) and 14
- Snowmen & Penguins – 15
- Santas – 16, 17
