Why Vintage Needlepoint
Vintage needlepoint canvases are rare and unique pieces that were produced locally by skilled artisans with high quality standards. Vintage canvases are ready to ship and were not painted overseas or produced en masse.
The rise in popularity of vintage hand painted needlepoint is based on the extremely limited supply and the exceptional designs that are no longer available. Many stitchers are drawn to vintage to find a project that is new and different; not the same canvases seen on repeat at needlepoint stores, blog posts, within stitch groups and on social media feeds.
Purchasing vintage needlepoint fulfills a desire to be more eco-friendly, buying vintage helps reduce the 25.5 billion pounds of usable textiles that are thrown away in the United States every year.
