Wishing everyone a happy Easter today! Here is an adorable Birds of a Feather canvas I stitched this summer:

It also comes in two other color ways:

Grace, one of the TPOIA girls, stitched this canvas and used a terrific herringbone fabric for the set in…it looks awesome!

Molly, another one of the TPOIA girls, just finished a darling little bunny.

Associated Talents and Labors of Love also make wonderful Easter canvases…have fun looking at their webpages!

Happy Easter; happy stitching,

All of us at The Point of It All are going bananas for Nancy’s darling eye glass case! The canvas, from Kirk & Hamilton, is long and skinny and folds up to make the double-sided eye glass case. We have several in-stock. Also, we will be hosting a Kirk & Hamilton trunk show in August.

Be sure to come by the shop soon–we’ve started receiving new canvases daily! We practically maul our UPS driver when he arrives with the packages!

Happy stitching,

Isn’t Miss Betsy adorable in pink leopard (of course!) needlepoint booties?! Laurie Bloch, stitcher extraordinaire and one of Betsy’s POIA Aunties, stitched these little shoes as a baby present. Laurie has been teaching needlepoint lessons and working at the shop for more than 25 years. She enjoys stitching lots and lots of canvases for her darling grandchildren, Leo and Sadie. If you need a needlepoint lesson or even a little refresher, we will put you in touch with Laurie! Private lessons are $40 and can be scheduled at a mutually-convenient time at the shop. She will also be running a week-long needlepoint camp for kids this summer; email me for details.

If you are in the market for custom booties, or custom anything really, we’re your shop! We work with a marvelous custom artist who can translate your idea into a spectacular canvas. Email me!

Happy stitching,
Susan
