Libby\ Nearly 40 years ago I entered the needlepoint business as a production painter and later as a custom designer for several Chicago area shops.  My custom work included pieces for individual customers, churches and a special assignment for the wedding kneelers at the U. S. Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, Colorado.  I  have taught at ANG, EGA guilds, national seminars, TNNA trade shows, the Callaway School of Needlearts, National Academy of Needlearts and shops coast to coast and Canada.  I have been featured in "Needlepoint Now", "The Stitchery Magazine", Caron Collection and Rainbow Gallery websites.

It all began in 1994 when I designed my first santa for a local EGA Chapter.  Ninety people signed up for the class.  Word of mouth took over and before long I was designing more whimsical santas for shops and guilds throughout the country.  I now have more then 120 designs, including santas, ladies, teapots, halloween figures, snowmen and florals.  See my designs by clicking on the Galleries button located above.

To me, the most challenging aspect of needlepoint design is the creative intergration of colors, threads and stitches.  My kits include line drawn canvases with detailed stitch guides and a suggested material list.  Some include unusual embellishments.

I am very proud of the relationships I have built with needlepoints shops.  Visit your favorite shop and if they don't stock the piece you like, have them contact me or my sales representative, Sundance Designs.  Click on the Contact Libby button for all the particulars.
