CHARTED CANVAS 1
***Needlework as Personal Adornment***

I am fascinated by the traditional separations we stitchers tend to impose on Needlepoint and Cross Stitch. 

Recent introductions of 18ct Linen in many lovely colors and 18m mono canvas with metallic accents make the division seem artificial. As a designer, I don't want to be prevented from designing with a beautiful fabric because using it would place my work in one category over another. 

Lately, I've been exploring design concepts which blur these boundaries.

I am pleased to introduce Tiny Treasures, designs charted for both 18ct Linen and 18m mono canvas.
I am also experimenting with the embellishment of canvas, using non-traditional painting techniques.
I offer canvas painting lessons in The Cabochon Collection. 
In addition, I offer pre-painted background canvases for those who prefer convenience.
