About

Needle You Needlepoint belt buckles are a one-woman run show of stylish handmade eclectic needlepoint buckles in a variety of rich colors & designs to satisfy anyone looking for a different kind of accessory.

What sets me apart as a buckle maker is the simple fact that I needlepoint all my own actual designs. My process is first & foremost loving needlepoint & wanting others to appreciate it as well by blending the textural artistry of needlepoint with modern day influential trends & classics.
The buckles range in price from $35 - $45 & fit any standard 1.5" wide snap style belt. All buckles arrive gift ready & sent by way of USPS with tracking. I also happen to love pairing my needlepoint buckles with the equally tactile beauty of tooled leather belts & now offer a stamp tooled version of them here in my shop to accompany the buckles…

I really hope you like my work here & keep in mind if you'd like one to be made especially for you just drop me a note. Also, I've just added a coupon code for Repeat customers == buy something & then receive the code for the next purchase. : )

I'm a married Mom of two 'tweens' & Alumna of The School of the Art Institute of Chicago + worked in visual merchandising for Marshall Fields in Chicago for a number of years which all then equals out to having an eye for the aesthetic & yet prefering to march to the beat of my own drum~

I love Chicago & love needlepoint & love the wonderful opportunity that Etsy allows myself & fellow truely handmade artisans, vintagers & good-egg suppliers to sell their work. : )

Thank You,
Leslie

**Having a few problems getting a hold of white and off whites, so until I find something comparable - whites & off whites can't be used in the needlepoints - sorry for the inconvenience.**
