Hand painted designs

Painting HaNoi

Recently I have started hand painting canvases. This is an exciting new development for Studio Stitches because I gives me the freedom to produce small quantities of new designs more often. It also means customers can commission their own colour customised variation of the design at no extra cost.

In the past

Previously, my designs were digitally printed. This has advantages especially when you want large quantities, but it comes at a high cost and for a little company like Studio Stitches it means a limited number of new designs a year.

Hand painting my canvases means I can have an idea for a design one day, draw it up and paint it the next day. I can change my mind about colours, make adjustments and generally control the process from beginning to end. Yippee!

I paint every canvas myself, and while the essential design is the same, each canvas is slightly different making every one unique.

New designs

The hand painted canvas range is regularly being added to. Be the first to know about new designs  by signing up to my blog and getting the latest updates.

What’s in a kit?

As with all my designs the hand painted kits include everything you need to stitch your needlepoint:

  • 10 count mono cotton canvas hand painted in full colour
  • Plenty of DMC wool to complete your needlepoint
  • Two needlepoint needles
  • Detailed instructions and personal follow up if needed
  • A practical calico bag, ideal for keeping your needlepoint clean and tidy and storing everything you need for your project.

I hope you find a hand painted design in my collection that inspires you to  join me in the wonderful craft of needlepoint.

Happy stitching!
