Welcome to Hummingbird Needlepoint

Creating Hummingbird… I have been doing needlepoint since I was a child, learning the craft from my mother. In 2010 I decided to needlepoint Christmas stockings for my family and went on a search for the perfect stocking canvases. When I couldn’t find the stockings I saw in my mind, I started creating my own. And I absolutely fell in love with painting needlepoint canvases! When I sit down with my paints and canvas I completely lose track of time and the ideas flow faster than I can paint. I would rather design a new canvas than just about anything. I always have a sketch book with me for new ideas. Why the name Hummingbird? Simply because I am absolutely fascinated by hummingbirds. They make me happy - as does designing needlepoint.
New Designs… I will be continually introducing new designs and entire product lines. Just a few items on the horizon are trays, keepsake boxes, cell phone, iPad, and eReader covers, Easter and Halloween decorations. There will also be new Christmas ornaments designed for each year. Do you have an idea you would like to see produced? Just let me know.
Custom Design… In addition to the designs on this website, I welcome the opportunity to create something that is yours alone. Please email me at the address on the Contact Page with your ideas.
Pink Ribbon… Perhaps you noticed the pink ribbon in the hummingbird’s beak. I have committed to donating 10% of all sales, and 25% of sales from the Pink Ribbon Collection, to the breast cancer research and treatment programs of Susan G. Komen for the Cure. I am a breast cancer survivor myself and feel incredibly lucky to have had the support of family and friends as well as the funds to access the treatment that I needed. Not all women are as lucky and supporting them through Hummingbird is a vital part of my business.
