When I talk to needlepointers, I find that so often they want guidance in stitching their canvas. A hand-painted canvas needlepoint is a significant investment and, all too often, we hesititate to stitch a canvas we really love because we don’t know where to begin.
That’s why we want stitch guides.
But all too often they disappoint. They use threads that no longer exist. They put the stitches (and maybe not all of them) at the end of the guide or don’t include them at all. They don’t help me stitch the canvas, they just list an area, thread, and stitch. And they are expensive.
I think there has to be a better way. A stitch guide that realizes you have made an investment in threads and have a stash. A stitch guide that will tell you things you can apply to another canvas. A stitch guide that has almost everything right there for you. And one that is affordable.
My stitch guides do just that. They take into account the threads (and stash) you have). They take into account your stitching level, your likes and dislikes, and your thoughts about the canvas. You’ll work with me to get a guide that is for the stitched canvas you see in your mind’s eye.
You can start the process easily, by filling out the stitch guide enquiry form. From that I’ll send you a price quote (so you know your costs up front), a time frame, and maybe some questions.
