Who We Are

Our family-owned business has grown from a love of stitching and a deep appreciation of art. We are dedicated to spreading the joy and appreciation of art and the art of needlepoint.

Of the many benefits of needlepoint, relaxation and the creation of beauty are two that come to mind. We hope you find our selection of well-known needlepoint designers as well as masters and living artists a satisfying experience.

We offer only Zweigart needlepoint canvas, makers of the finest quality needlepoint canvases in the world. We ensure that each and every canvas' scale and color are just as the artists intended. Our customers have loved stitching our canvases for many years, and we're confident that you will too.

From all of us at The Art Needlepoint Co, we wish you happy stitching!

I received the canvases today-- They are spectacular! I hope that I can do them justice.

I am thrilled with the canvases! I didn't expect such beautiful canvases for such a reasonable price. I can't wait to frame up and get busy!

We proudly have very few returns, but we respond to and resolve any concerns you may have in a timely and courteous manner. The most common reasons for returns are below.

Challenging Canvases

In the event that you receive a canvas you selected and upon receipt find it a daunting challenge, is not a size you thought it would be or you simply changed your mind, we ask that you phone or email us before a return for a return authorization number. In all circumstances, we will accept a return for an exchange for a different canvas, providing the canvas is returned within 14 days of the shipdate. Only returns with a return authorization number will be processed.

Damaged or Defective Canvases

In the event that you receive a damaged canvas (rarely, and usually by the carrier) please call or email us and we will be glad to quickly send a substitute canvas. In the event you receive a canvas that is either defective or the wrong item, a replacement will be sent promptly upon notification.

Other Reasons

Please note that all canvases are unfinished canvas. Unless otherwise noted -- such as products that are listed as kits -- canvases do not come with yarn or thread. Refunds or returns are to be made within 14 days of the ship date inclusive of shipping time ( special order threads are not included - see below).  Custom sized canvases are non refundable. Refunds or returns will no longer be considered if you buy a canvas believing it to be a finished piece of needlepoint canvas or if you thought your canvas came with threads when sold as canvas only. Thank you for your understanding.

Custom ordered canvases, which include images provided by you that are not part of our collection, as well as custom sized canvases of patterns from our website are not returnable.

Returning Kits and Threads

Kits can be returned should it arrive damaged or you are sent the wrong one in error. As with most needlework retailers, special order threads to complete a canvas, custom threads or partial skeins or hanks cannot be returned, except if we have made an error in a color selection sent to you. Merchandise will be returned prepaid and is the responsibility of the purchaser and credit issued will not include shipping charges if any applied for the original transaction.

How can we help?

Choosing the right canvas or thread

We love talking needlepoint and we’re happy to help! Just give us a ring and we’ll happily help you choose your next project.

On our website, if the title includes the word kit, then the description will describe the threads or choice of threads in that kit. Otherwise, canvases are sold as canvas only to which you can add whatever type of thread you would like to use.

Customize canvas or mesh size

We can customize nearly any image to a mesh size that best suits your needs, and we can customize most images to different sizes. Just ask!

About our threads

Many of our canvases are sold without threads, but we will gladly select and add appropriate colors from any of the thread lines we carry. Those which come with thread are identified as kits. When the title has the word kit, the description will identify the type or choice of thread in the kit. You can change any kit to a fiber of your choice though it may or may not change the cost of the kit. You can also add threads of your choice to any canvas. 

We carry the complete selection of Anchor Pearle Cotton, Anchor Tapestry Wool, Vineyard Silks Merino Wools, Elsa Williams Wool, Needlepoint Inc. Silk, Vineyard Silks Silk, Paternayan, Kreinik, and various other specialty overdyes and combination threads. If you need thread at any time, no matter the quantity, please contact us with your request.

Canceling your order

If you need to cancel an order please call or email us within 48 hours of your purchase as we strive to ship all orders within five to seven business days of purchase date. We can upon request do expedited orders.
