Collins Street


The hand painted Collins Street needlepoint measures 45 x 43cm. 



Collins Street, is a contemporary hand painted needlepoint cushion kit.

The Collins Street series of cushion features a blue motif on a white background plus the feature colour. This is the beautiful pistachio green, with paler green lines criss-crossing the bands.
So far I have also painted Collins Street in:
  • Pink
  • Teal blue
  • Sky blue ( a commission)
  • Lemon yellow
  • Ochre/brown

Inspired by the fabrics of the 1960’s

The Collins Street needlepoint design has a very interesting story which includes a generous friend, a lovely uncle and his hoard of European fabric swatches bought for Australian fashion houses in the 1960’s.  You can read more here.

To inquire about commissions contact me, to discuss the details.

Here are some samples of the beautiful colourways I prepared earlier:

As well as the hand painted canvas, every kit includes:

  • DMC 100% wool. All you need (and extra if you run out)
  • 2 tapestry needles
  • full instructions, and follow up support as needed
  • a wonderfully practical calico bag to store your project as you stitch.

A free  one hour workshop with every kit

For those of you who live in Adelaide, I offer free workshop with every kit.

The workshops are approximately one hour, here in my studio and I promise to get you stitching confidently before you leave.

Collins Street with Forget-me-nots

Bring a friend, have a cuppa, and start stitching.

I hope you find a spot for a Collins Street cushion (or two) in your home and join me in the wonderful craft of needlepoint.

Happy stitching!
