Here at CL Needlepoint, we have a wide variety of canvases and kits for you to enjoy. While it can be fun to simply browse through our website, here are some helpful tips for choosing your next project so you can start stitching - and soon!
1. 16 categories on our main page - We have made it easy for you to browse by whatever suits your mood from the different categories on the front page. In the mood to stitch some florals? Easy, just click on "Floral." Definitely want a Christmas stocking? No problem, just click "Christmas." Just returned from a wonderful trip to New York City? Great, click "Cities/Landmarks."
2. Often you have a specific artist in mind whose designs you just love and you want to stitch. We have made that easy, as well. Just click the "Shop" button on the top white bar on the front page and you will see every artist right there. For example, click on "Laurel Burch" and her canvases will appear!
3. Let's say you know exactly what room you want to add a pillow or wall hanging to, you just aren't sure which canvas to choose. In that case, you may first think about the best color scheme for the room. Contemporary homes with muted tones may want to add a needlepoint in colors that are creams, whites, or maybe add color with darker browns. Looking for something for the beach house? You may want nautical themes with anchors, mermaids, starfish, etc. If you want something for your child's bedroom or there is a new baby arriving soon, maybe you want something from a children's story or nursery rhyme.
4. Finally, you may have a specific season in mind that you are in the mood to stitch. First you will have to decide if you want to stitch for the current season or if you want to stitch for an upcoming season. Bear in mind that stitching takes time and your project may not be completed by the time this season is over. Either way, take a look at the categories on our home page - we have all four seasons for you!
Whichever method you use to choose your next stitching project, you will be investing many pleasurable hours creating a beautiful piece that will last for years to come!
