The Knotted Needle



Expert Advise


We can provide expert advise when selecting your threads, embellishments and stitches for a needlepoint canvas design.  We have an excellent and extensive collection of hand-painted needlepoint canvases from which to choose, and one of the very best selections of threads and embellishments in Michigan.  We can order ANY needlepoint canvas you desire from our long list of needlepoint designers.

Stitching services are available for both plain needlepoint or for more decorative stitching from talented "ghost" stitching services.

We can also introduce you to several talented artists who custom-design your needlepoint canvas to commemorate an important person, place,  pet or event in your life.  We can also arrange for custom work through several of our national designers.  You are limited only by your imagination!

We use numerous finishers who can make your needlepoint canvas into anything you want; from a simple belt or ornament to an elaborate 3-D decoration, or incredible purses, Christmas stockings, scissor cases, for example.  The list never ends.

Our Needlepoint Designers


We carry an extensive collection of hand-painted needlepoint canvases in stock at all times.
