Needlepointwear: Preppy

Needlepoint Belt "Sailing Scene"

If the needlepoint scene caught the attention of the New York Times Fashion and Style section, we’re doing well. Now’s the time to invest in needlepoint everybody! Don’t wait until it’s too late!

A while ago, I bought a Tucker Blair needlepoint headband and took it apart. It is made very well. Neat hand stitching on 18 count canvas. Professional finishing. Very strong – I needed to really exert myself to get the canvas off the headband bone. The only minor complaint is that a bit of padding should have been put underneath, especially along the middle. Without it, it sagged a little in that area. But all in all, a quality product. Still, you can save money and attain stitchisfaction by acquiring one of our own, self-finishing, Threadbands.

BTW, it appears that Tucker Blair doesn’t sell the headband line any more, at least not on the website. You can still access the headband product page, if you know where to go.
