window is now back up.  i changed themes.  gone are the huge pictures and buggy galleries and the post slider.  in is a clean, minimalist design that is extremely easy to navigate, works uniformly on most modern browsers, and is optimized for mobile devices.*

the goal of is to help you make a needlepoint purchase decision.

with that in mind, the site features trunk show brochures, a sample catalog, and a grab bag gallery — as well as location, contact and order info. it makes extensive use of the ISSUU flip catalog.  this is embedded if viewed through a PC browser. a helper app from can be downloaded for Android or iOS phones.

as discussed earlier, the URL is public.  anyone can view this content.  in the next few days, as per earlier posts, the domain will point to it. therefore, there will be no need for needlepoint vendors and designers to adjust existing links.

as soon the domain “repoint” occurs, the blog you are now reading ( will become private, per numerous earlier posts.

to access its exclusive content and promotions — which will include .pdf brochures that feature ultra hi-def digital images of new needlepoint designs, sans moiré artifacts — you will need to get a sign-in id from WordPress and initiate an automated request via WP for an invite.

several guides on how to do so have been published in earlier posts that detail this simple process, which costs nothing and does not require you to establish a blog with WP.

i look forward to welcoming you to the Needlepoint Land club!


*Uniform functionality, excepting IE9 and below.  Opera has not been tested.



i really appreciate the requests i am getting to have access to  hang on.  right now the site is being rebuilt; there is nothing to see there at the moment.  so don’t worry about not having access to it.   i am going to work with the tech team to put the finishing touches on then release a post here later tonight explaining how everything is going to hang together.  so hold on to your hats:  all will be revealed quite soon.  i just got back from a full day’s work, so let me have dinner, relax for a bit, then i will put together this explanatory post! Easy peasy, no Parcheesi.


think I will put up a post later today that explains my new “strategy” in more detail.  stay tuned!  btw i have already received a number of requests for invites…. thank you!

Lynda’s stunning sun


I was talking to designer Lynda R. of Dreamhouse Ventures the other day and we got on to the topic of Rhodes stitches. Lynda was nice enough to email this spectacular sun she stitched so that I could share it with my readers. Thanks Lynda!





P.S. Look for updates of the Trunk Show in February at Needlepoint Land featuring Dreamhouse Ventures!


Just learned a neat little CSS trick with a slide show on the Needlepoint Land store site.

Check it out here and watch Julia’s needlepoint belts seem to float effortlessly in white space!

Oh, and stay tuned for a news update later this evening!!!
