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.

Please contact the seller if you have any problems with your order.

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.
