The Art of Painting with Small Dots of Colored Fibers
The Collections offer you Tapestries - Charts and Patterns for Beginners to Experts. There are small designs - pillow sizes up to large rugs.
Within this Needlepoint Collections Section of the website - we illustrate and explain how each Design was developed and how it may be worked and - later finished into Pillows - Cushions - Rugs - Chair Seats - Coasters - Panels - Frames - Bench Covers and much more.
We include the historical development of the designs as well as the original source of inspiration for these Needlepoint Collections on each individual page.
Precise finishing instructions - with photographs ( for you - or your professional finisher ) - are included with these new kits and canvases - as well as finishing packages - with the necessary fabrics and accessories.

On the following page - you will enjoy another close up of the finished Rug Kits alone - followed by this same Tapestry - informally draped over a chair outdoors in a private estate in Avila. We include an extensive history of Spanish Ceramics throughout these pages.

These Four Different Needlework Designs ( forming the frame seen previously ) may also be used as a Table Cover or Headboard and Bedroom Bench.

Small Needlepoint Kits or Canvases are usually designed for children. We broke this idea in 1999 - when adults wanted a taste of needlepointing - without the overwhelming idea of purchasing the larger kits.
This page shows some of the smaller kits available - the designs are suitable for children - younger adults and - well - all people of all ages.
