Valentines Day!

Valentine's Day is swiftly approaching, and if you were thinking about making something for your sweetie, we have a couple ideas for you!

We recently received some clear heart paperweights which you can insert a stitched needlepoint into. We had Jim, our custom painter, paint a few that would be perfect for your loved one. They're in the theme of heart candies, with phrases like 'Kiss Me' and 'Be Mine.' The set, which includes the canvas and the paperweight is just $40, and since there's only 2 colors, they'll be so quick to stitch up! Also, to make these an even better deal and great idea for a gift that can continue to be modified (the canvases don't have to be applied permanently to the paperweight. You can interchange the canvas as the season or your mood passes), there's no finishing costs! Just stitch and insert the finished canvas into the paperweight, and you're ready to give it as a gift!

Another of our fantastic pieces by Jim is the Love Sign, shown on the right, a Philadelphia monument! This canvas is 13m and 7 x 7. It's $49.95. This finishes up into a fabulous pillow or framed piece. For a smaller simplified version of this, which would finish into a great ornament, framed art, or pillow, we have the smaller love canvases. You can buy one by itself, which just includes the canvas and a needle, for $21 or you can get the kit which includes the canvas, a needle, yarn and a set of directions, all for $28! These would be really quick stitching projects, and as mentioned before, finish into lovely pieces for display.

Another idea, would be one of our customizable flasks. You can buy the flask by itself for $65 and then buy a canvas to fit inside. All of the round canvases by Lee & Colonial Needle which are made for their luggage tags, fit into these fabulous and attractive flasks. If you want to buy everything together, you can buy a kit. The kit includes the flask and the canvas for $69.95. We have 4 kits in stock, with images of a martini glass, the classic burberry plaid, a pink variation of the burberry plaid, and a charming polka dot option. The thread is not included in these kits, although we are always eager to help you choose appropriate threads if you need some suggestions!

If you were thinking that this year would be a great year to give your date a handmade gift, we can definitely help you out! Come in and see what we have. If your Valentine is a needlepointer themselves, you can also give a gift certificate to our store!
We look forward to seeing you in the store!
