Up to now, needlepoint canvases have gotten too expensive. We are changing that!
We offer unique hand-crafted “stitcher-friendly” canvases [images about 6-8 x 10 inches, canvas size 12 x 14 inches] at a very “stitcher-friendly” price of $ 69 which also includes a color art print of the image (suitable for framiing) on archival paper (a $ 14.95 value). These art prints are great guides for the sticher to use while working on the canvas. No need to guess what the finished canvas will look like when you have this art print available as you stitch.
All of our images come from the Ars Antigua collection of over 500,000 antique engravings and lithographs from the 16th - 20th centuries, one of America’s largest privately held image archives.
Our hand-crafted canvases — all made in the U.S. in our own Los Angeles atelier — use images which have been optimized for stitchers. They are produced one-at-a time using state of the art technology. We believe that our American made canvases are far superior to canvases (most of which are done in China, the Philippines, Haiti, etc.) costing 2 to 4 times as much both in image quality and execution.
Needlepointmasters.com canvases received great critical acclaim — when introduced at the 2011 TNNA [The National NeedleArts Association] Convention— for their unique imagery and stitcher “friendliness.” Needlepoint teachers told us they were the highest quality canvases they had seen.
Needlepoint Masters is a new division of Ars Antigua from The Drexler Collection (established in 1989).
