Custom Hand-Painted Frames
Heirloom Designs helps create beautiful custom frames for your needlepoint canvases
Our friends at Heirloom Designs shared these fantastic painted frames, custom made for two of Kelly Clark’s pieces. We love how well the frames compliment the canvases – it’s hard to tell where the canvas ends and the frame starts.
And the best part? They’re self-finishing which means no more sending canvases out to be framed. It doesn’t get much better than that!
Canvases are available for purchase through your LNS.
And to order a custom frame for your favorite needlepoint canvas, contact Heirloom Designs

Silk Bags are a hit with employees and customers alike
We love the way our new Lee’s silk bags look with a finished canvas! The monogram was stitched by a CNC team member who couldn’t resist and the Lotus was stitched by Michelle Hufford. These bags are the perfect size for make-up, travel stitching bags, toiletries, etc. and can be ordered through your LNS.

Check Out this Self-Finishing Leather Bag with Stitched Needlepoint Canvas
Sue Wallerstein sent us these great pictures of her beautifully completed Lee’s Self-Finishing leather bag. She used the BAG36 leather bag and the BG26 needlepoint canvas for this project. Sue adjusted a few of the canvas colors to make it her own which we love! Looks great, Sue! Enjoy toting this beauty around town!
