Chicago Corner

Because so many of our customers visit from out-of-town, we carry canvases that are specific to the Chicago area.  One artist is licensed  to create designs based upon the works of Frank Lloyd Wright.  Others depict the skyline, immediately recognizable landmarks, and our sports teams.  In the very near future, we will be carrying a special Chicago canvas designed exclusively for us by Shelly Tribbey.  It will be one of her signature Santa heads surrounded by some of our city’s most-famous landmarks.

Custom Needlepoint Designs

City Stitcher has an artist who is happy to design a canvas to your specifications.  Perhaps you want a portrait of a beloved pet, a rendition of the house where you grew up, or a design to coordinate with your decor.  Give us a photograph, a wallpaper or fabric sample, a rough sketch, or just a verbal description, and we will provide you with a cost and timing estimate.


Our inventory of specialty canvases is extensive.  While Christmas is the leading seller, Halloween and Easter designs continue to multiply.  We can provide you with pieces for Valentine’s Day, New Year’s, and Thanksgiving as well as St. Patrick’s Day and the Fourth of July.  There are possibilities galore to welcome a new baby or decorate a child’s room.  We also have access to artists who focus on Jewish themes and specific professions.   Whatever the event you are marking, City Stitcher can provide the needlepoint canvas for you.
