About

Modern messages on vintage linens. The ultimate mashup.

A few years ago, I wandered into a big craft supplies store and spotted embroidery thread, so I bought a handful of thread and embroidered one of my favorite rock n roll lyrics. I thought the contrast of old school execution and popular culture would be an entertaining clash.

A lot of other people think it's fun, too.

I strive to make even message look like it was always meant to be on that piece of linen. And these vintage, ready-made canvases have a green aspect -- they're a way to re-use material and keep it out of landfill.

Embroidery takes a lot of time. And there are no shortcuts to my style. But thanks to my long subway commute, I've turned these weekly hours into a creative outlet. I hope you enjoy the humor and unexpected twist that I bring to each piece.

    Embroidery was something I learned as a girl scout, so it wasn't something I did in art school, but I've accidentally come back to it. I think all of my creative experiences through the years have contributed to My Needle Habit.

Returns and exchanges
A strictly case-by-case basis. Unless the piece is damaged in transit, I cannot offer a refund since I make each piece with extreme care. And this quality is a big part of what you responded to when you decided to buy.
Payment
Your payment is due upon purchase. I generally ship within 2 business days.

For custom orders, full payment is required for linen sourcing approval, design and embroidering. Orders take 1-2 weeks.
Shipping
In most cases, I ship using Priority Mail from the USPS with tracking.

International customers: Shipping costs have gone up and I have no control over them! Delivery Confirmation is extremely expensive, so I don't offer it on international orders.
Additional policies and FAQs
Each piece created by My Needle Habit is a hand-stitched original.

No two pieces of linen that I work on are alike. In rare cases, I will find a linen 'pair' and will create a piece that incorporated both.

Each piece of linen is of the very best, pristine condition I can find. Any deviation from this would be described and pictured in the write-up of that piece.

Depending on complexity, each wall tapestry takes anywhere from 10 - 20 hours to make.

Share on social media. But your Etsy purchase does NOT include reproduction rights.
