New from Planet Earth – Leather Boxes and Zipper Pouches

I just got a few of these in from Planet Earth.  These are leather boxes with an inset of 4 x 4″ on top.  You remove the paper and apply your stitched needlepoint to the sticky part.  Self finishing at its finest!  Each box has a cute neutral stripe fabric inside and a little matching bag to store your treasures in.  The second is a zipper pouch, perfect for carrying all your essentials when leaving the house.  I’m currently finding canvases to fit these so let me know if you need some ideas.  More colors are available in the boxes and the zip pouches.

New Canvases Arriving Weekly

I know that many of us don’t want to wait for a canvas 6-8 months for a canvas to be painted.  I’m ordering what our designers have in stock so that you have a large selection to choose from.  Keep an eye on the What’s New page on the Homestead Needle Arts website!  The cute one above is 12 Teapots by Pippin.
