Atlanta Hand Painted Needlepoint Canvas

Welcome to Atlanta where the Stitchers play! We picked some of our favorite places in the city where Amanda & Krista both have deep roots! This canvas can be stitched in traditional tent stitches (basketweave or bust) or you can utilize specialty threads such as Very Velvet to liven up some of the letter.
