finding comfort in needlepoint patterns

I am proud to announce a new partnership with ArtNeedlepoint.com to offer my art as designs for needlepoint canvases.


I've always loved the comfort of knitting. I love complicated patterns that challenge the left side of my brain to work with the creative right side, which is why I was completely thrilled when I signed on to offer my art as needlepoint patterns for ArtNeedlepoint.com

Why women stitch


After a discussion with the company, I learned that women choose needlepoint for emotional reasons. Often they are passing the time while keeping a loved one company who is ill...perhaps long hours in the hospital. Others choose needlepoint projects to commemorate a loved one.

I know I like to stitch (knitting) because it keeps my hands from snacking while watching tv and is a great way to use nervous energy while supervising homework or when I am traveling. With all this snow we have been having it would be wonderful to have a new project to get my fingers busy and keep my lap warm all day.

Western Wall Tallit Bag :
a lovely canvas of the Wailing Wall in Jerusalem 
for all skill levels.  Can be framed or made into 
an 11x14" Tallit bag. Kit includes a deluxe 
needlepoint canvas and all the easy to use 
silk threads needed to complete.  
A name or other customized hebrew lettering 
can be added to the canvas to personalize.


Projects they choose

In addition, women who stitch do so to give gifts, like a Tallit bag to commemorate a Bar Mitzvah and to decorate their own home. Home decor needlepoint projects include turning canvases into pillows, frame-able wall art or even an ambitious offering such as a rug. They are always looking for a new challenge and there is a thrill in starting a new project.
